tv First Look MSNBC April 6, 2016 2:00am-2:31am PDT
it's wednesday, april 6th. right now on "first look," big wins for bernie sanders and ted cruz adds pressure to the front-runners. >> we have now won seven out of eight of the last caucuses and primaries. >> we've got the full spectrum of the republican party coming together and uniting behind this campaign. >> but are the front-runners worried? with new york being the next big prize. two political battles from alabama's governor facing impeachment to the controversial religious freedom law and many more. uconn's date with destiny and the fourth national
championship. a hero cop saves the day for one desperate driver. plus a whole lot more on a busy wednesday. "first look" starts right now. good morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us today. i'm betty nguyen. so the badger state has spoken. bernie sanders led hillary clinton by double digits. the win nets him 46 new delegates. clinton picks up 43. he is now less than 250 pledged delegates behind clinton but when you factor in super delegates he trails by more than 600. he's hoping to capitalize on the push with this win and what it gives him. >> with our victory tonight in wisconsin, we have now won seven out of eight of the last caucuses and primaries. >> secretary clinton tweeted congrats to bernie sanders on winning wisconsin.
to all the volunteers who poured your heart into this campaign, forward, "h." they'll debate on april 14th with new yorkers going to the polls five days later on the 19th. at a town hall, clinton was welcomed by new york first lady shirley mccray and clinton was quick to needle trump on his home turf. >> thank you. the fellow who's from new york, i wish he'd get out of one of his towers and actually walk the streets and spend time with the people of this city. because peddling prejudice and paranoia is not the new york way. >> i'm with her. i'm with her. >> well, i'm also with you. >> clinton also appeared on "the view" and held a fund raiser in the bronx. later this morning, she sits down with joe and mika on "morning joe." senator ted cruz beat trump by a wide margin.
he collects 33 delegates to trump's 3, narrowing his gap with the donald to 239. cruz won praise from fellow republican lindsey graham who tweeted, quote, well done ted cruz. hopefully tonight is the turning point to deny trump 1,237 delegates. saying trump's domestic and foreign policy gibberish is beginning to catch up with him. graham's turning point comment was echoed in cruz's victory speech along with a warning. >> tonight is a turning point. it is a rallying cry. it is a call from the hard working men and women of wisconsin to the people of america. we have a choice. a real choice. so let me just say hillary, get ready. here we come. >> nbc's hallie jackson spoke with wisconsin governor scott walker about cruz's chance with the race moving forward.
>> i think you're seeing and -- well, embodied in the fact you see jeb bush to carly fiorina, lindsey graham, coming together. this is a guy who can unite us like reagan did after the primaries. win the nomination and convention and then go on to win in november. >> and a reuters rolling poll shows cruz gaining on the donald. now polling within the margin of error as the candidates prepare for new york's primary. so how much of an impact did donald trump's loss in wisconsin have on his path to the nomination? msnbc's steve kornacki crunched the numbers. >> so we're talking about this path to 1,237 for donald trump. what does tonight's loss in wisconsin do to complicate that for him? look at this on the screen right here, donald trump does clear the image magic number here. not a prediction here. after tonight he'll be roughly
at 760. next state up, new york. big favorite in new york. can he get 80 of the 95? if he does he's at 840. take a look at the rest of the northeast. loose definition of the northeast, west virginia, maryland in there too. if he does really well here, the way he's supposed to do if he's not too hurt by tonight, he could come out of that with 1,015 out of the northeast. a narrow win in indiana and added 30 to that, he's at 1,045. if he goes out to the west coast, goes to california, the pacific coast out here, if he gets about 175 out of that, he'd be sitting at 1,220. remember, 1,237 is the magic number. you have to take probably nebraska, south dakota and montana off the board. these look like cruz states, and they're winner take all. that leaves new mexico if he's at 1,220, 24 delegates proportional, he could get over the top.
geek a couple of the other -- tweak a couple of the other ones. it's a very tight, very narrow path for donald trump. it exists but a lot of things have to go his way. and losing wisconsin tonight didn't help. >> all right. see how that turns out. in the meantime, though in an unprecedented move al lawmakers are moving to impeach robert bentley over his alleged affair with an aide who's since resigned but he's vowing to defend himself. nbc's kerry sanders has more. >> reporter: for the first time in alabama history, the process to impeach this state's governor began. >> we're looking at at this governor who has essentially betrayed the trust of the people of alabama. >> reporter: ins are on the 73-year-old governor issued a statement promising to vigorously defend himself. second term governor bentley is accused of using state resources to further an affair with rec ac -- rebekah mason. leaked audiotapes are alleged to
be him talking to her. has apologized for making inappropriate comments. >> i did. that's why i asked the people of this state to forgive me because they are forgiving people. they know god's grace. >> reporter: this scandal exploded after the fired top law enforcement official here raised questions about the governor's at ledged relationship -- alleged relationship and possible misuse of state resources. >> this not about the governor's personal conduct. this is about the allegations against him including that he obstructed justice within the state law enforcement agency. >> reporter: ironically, house members who may eventually vote on impeachment are the same one who re-upped the speaker of the house, despite his indictment on 23 counts of ethics violations. the speaker who maintains his innocence has yet to go on trial. and among the witnesses who could be called in the case --
governor bentley. >> alabama is partly embarrassed by it and partly used to it. it's part of the circus that goes on here. >> nbc's kerry sanders reporting this. a special house investigative committee has been formed and a vote is wyches away. another state has passed a so-called religious freedom law in the wake of legalizing same-sex marriage, but critics see it as a thinly veiled violence to discriminate against gays and lesbians. janet shamlian has more. >> reporter: the announcement from bryant came on twitter and facebook. he signed the state's controversial religious rights bill. allowing businesses, churches and others to refuse service to same-sex couples. based on religious believes. >> it simply protects someone's religious views against the state. >> reporter: reaction is swift,
i have never been more disgusted in the state of mississippi but also support. how is passing the bill considered hate? the aclu saying it will serve as the magnolia state's badge of shame and others are calling it sanctioned discrimination. >> mississippi needs only look as far as north carolina to see how damaging discrimination can be to a state's reputation and to a state's economy. >> reporter: paypal cancelled plans for a 400 job expansion citing north carolina's new law, limiting protection for transgender people. and atlanta joined a growing list of cities and states banning publicly funding -- funded travel there. in georgia it was vetoed after big companies threatened to take business elsewhere. >> i think it is about the character of our state and the character of our people. >> reporter: in the wake of last year's landmark decision, legalizing gay marriages,
showdowns in a number of states. mississippi's law takes effect in july. janet shamlian, nbc news. a dramatic police chase was caught on dash cam video. it happened on sunday and ended when a speeding suv flips through the air and lands in a ditch after the driver lost control. that driver was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the flying suv. but lucky for him, the officer saved his life by performing cpr. >> no -- >> a nurse who witnessed the crash also came to help. the driver was reportedly talking to paramedics as they took him to the hospital. all right. so delicious or just plain gross? a racing superstar, dale earnhardt, jr., shares his favorite sandwich. plus, the uconn huskies do what no other ncaa women's basketball team has ever done before. there are two billion people

think you can put your car in reverse as fast as this guy did? this is china where this van nearly drove into the landslide. the driver managed to stop in time and throw it in reverse as tons of rock and earth poured down to the road. it was caused by days of drenching rain. boom. shifted it quickly. saved the car. well, the snow continues to fall, winter just has woken up. this is all snow right now in central portions of michigan. and even in northern wisconsin is going to get that. plain old rain in milwaukee and chicago. ugly morning in the great lakes region. if it's not raining it's snowing. we could see another six inches in areas of northern michigan. how about the cold in the east? the winds are light. yesterday was bad with the windchills. temperature right now in richmond is 28 degrees. 27 in charleston. the good thing with april, at least with the sunshine it will

destiny. >> the huskies beat syracuse in an 82-51 finish and capping off a perfect season. uconn had a strong start out of the gate though with breanna stewart earning ten points in the first six minutes. building the 23-6 lead over syracuse. the orange managed to close the gap to 17 in the third quarter but they were no match for the huskies as they restored the lead and finished the undefeated season while notching the 75th consecutive win. uconn's stewart was named the final four's most outstanding player for the fourth year in a row. the seniors graduate with a 151-5 record. congrats to uconn. villanova wild cats returned to a hero's well come on campus with classes cancelled for the day. the victory parade will be held

winning big in wisconsin. but trump not happy about this. saying that the gop stole -- is stealing his nomination. he's calling cruz what, a trojan horse. is he just a sore loser or some validity to the claims? >> well, can we say both? i mean, it is true. donald is right, the republican accomplishment does not seem to want him to get this nomination. >> yeah. >> and they are doing all kind of stuff to stop him and i think ted cruz is benefiting from that. still, it was about the least gracious defeat i have ever seen. calling the other guy a liar and accusing him of committing crimes. >> lyin' ted is what he calls him. >> still with lyin' ted. i would say sore loser and they're out to get him, both. >> it doesn't seem like he'll change that tone. i mean, he's had plenty of opportunity to take the high road and be presidential, but he can't do it. >> it's not in him. he's read the teleprompter once

the republican nomination. good morning. it's wednesday, april 6th and i'm sam stein. now wisconsin has spoken and the message is clear. the fight for the nomination in both parties will go on. last night, ted cruz scored a must win victory in the wisconsin republican primary, comfortably beating donald trump. and governor john kasich won 14%. trump fared well in the northern and western part of the state and cruz has taken home 33 delegates so far with six yet decided. on the democratic side, bernie sanders had a resounding 14-point victory over hillary clinton. by he made only a small dent in the delegate race. sanders picked up 46 delegates to clinton's 43. however, clinton h
