7:02 am
saturday morning. i'm erica hill. >> i'm craig melvin alongside dylan dreyer and sheinelle jones. these people on the plaza had no idea they would get snow. >> why are you blaming me? >> we always blame you. >> if you blame her for the bad weather, you have to thank her for the nice weather. >> we will get to weather in just a bit. our top story is this all-out push for the wisconsin vote on tuesday. on the republican side, it is shaping up to be a critical test of the stop trump forces. now the republican frontrunner is on defense again for the stance on abortion. we have both the democratic and republican races. we have kerry sanders covering the story from wisconsin. good morning. >> good morning, erica. donald trump finds himself in the position of being on the
7:03 am
offensive. this morning, on the unusual and uncomfortable position of defense after stumbles of talking about abortion that continually require clarification. >> reporter: for the second time this week, donald trump forced to back pedal in the abortion debate. and telling nbc news to air on sunday. >> at this moment, the laws are set. we have to leave it that way. >> reporter: trump campaign's releasing a clarification. stating mr. trump gave an accurate account of the law as it is today and made clear it must stay that way now until he is president. then he will change the law through his judicial appointments and allow the states to protect the unborn. there is nothing new or different here. trump has had a rare week of relentless bad pr. highlighted by the town hall on msnbc with chris matthews.
7:04 am
>> do you believe in punishment for abortion? >> there has to be some form of punishment. >> reporter: today, trump will have three events in wisconsin. a marquette poll shows ted cruz with an almost ten-point lead over trump. and this week, cruz with the endorsement of scott walker. walker with a high approval rating among voters. >> when ted cruz is able it win, we are able to help him win. >> reporter: the gop establishment hopes an embarrassing loss in wisconsin could be their chance to derail trump's momentum going into the home state primary in new york. >> they should see the republican establishment was pushing back at donald trump. this is where they decided to do it and do it most effectively. >> reporter: now last night, president obama took a veiled
7:05 am
swipe at donald trump who has said he would not oppose japan and south korea getting nuclear weapons. >> the person who made the statements doesn't know much about foreign policy or nuclear policy or the korean peninsula or the world generally. >> how donald trump's statements on abortion could be interesting how it plays with women. of course, we know other candidates and in other political races found statements on abortion issue since the roe v. wade had an impact. >> kerry, thank you. >> this morning, the vermont senator insisting the clinton team owes his team an apology after she accused him of lying of her record.
7:06 am
we have nbc's kristen welker in milwaukee. >> reporter: craig, good morning to you. secretary clinton hoped to be focussing on the general election. instead she is back here in wisconsin where she had added extra events to take on bernie sanders. where she shows no signs of backing down. >> thank you. thank you, green bay. >> reporter: bernie sanders hoping a win on tuesday in wisconsin will make it four straight victories after trouncing clinton in the western caucuses last weekend. and then he slammed clinton for accusing him of lying about her record in the exchange with a protester earlier this week. >> i am so sick of the sanders campaign lying about this. sick of it. >> secretary clinton owes us an apology. we were not lying. >> reporter: the clinton campaign refusing to apologize. with just three days to go until election day, sanders holds on
7:07 am
to a four-point lead in the state clinton's team hoped to win. beating clinton here would give him greater momentum heading back to new york where sanders is closing in on clinton's lead. >> what i love about new york, you can knock us down, but you can't keep us down. >> reporter: greeting students at syracuse the day before the school plays in the final four. the democratic frontrunner identifying with the underdog. >> i said earlier today i am rooting for the home team. >> reporter: and taking it to sanders. >> my opponent talks about free college. you have to read the fine print. anytime anybody tells you something is free, ask for the details. >> reporter: money is still pouring into the sanders campaign. $44 million in march alone. >> why are you still undecided? >> because so far all i heard is a lot of rhetoric between the
7:08 am
candidates. >> what do one of the candidates have to do to win your vote? >> talk about the issues. that's it. >> now if senator sanders wins in wisconsin, he will pick up more delegates. mostly he will pick up momentum heading into new york. both candidates have a party dinner here in milwaukee tonight. craig. >> kristen welker, thank you. >> josh barrough is a contributor for nbc. and joan walsh is a political analyst. nice to have both of you here with us this morning. when we look at the week that was for donald trump, a lot of bumps on the road. multiple comments and changes with abortion and issues with the campaign manager. it is not the first time, josh, we have seen donald trump change position and quickly on an issue. is anything different this time?
7:09 am
>> i don't think nationally anything is different. i think people who care about the abortion issue or policy issues already were not with donald trump. trump is about mood affiliation. he is angry. i think he had a bad week in wisconsin. i think the fight he picked with scott walker is stupid. he attacked walker for not raising taxing. that is a weird thing to do in a republican primary. conservative talk radio is a force backing him usually. he will likely do badly wisconsin. we should not assume he will be punished nationally for these things. >> joan, trump's disapproval with women is continuing to plummet. quinnipiac says it is at 70% nationwide. >> negative. >> four years ago, mitt romney was about 40%. assuming he is the nominee, how
7:10 am
does a candidate like this go on to win a general election? >> there is no way he does that. i disagree a bit with josh. i think the abortion comments will hurt him a little bit. anyone who is paying attention and has a feeling on abortion, pro or con, looks at that and says this man has never given this a thought in his entire privileged life. he used to be pro choice. now anti-abortion. he hasn't thought through why and what will happen. it really annoyed the pro life forces. they are mainly with ted cruz. i think it increases the notion along with his nuclear comments. this guy doesn't think things through well. >> when we look at the race in wisconsin, it's looking very good for ted cruz. if cruz pulls out a win, what does it mean? >> it depends. for one thing, this is probably ted cruz's second more favorable state on the map. only south dakota is better for
7:11 am
him. we move into the northeast states which are more favorable to donald trump. it depends how much he wins. wisconsin allocating for the state. that is a rule that is favorable to donald trump. he tends to do well in states with few republican voters. you get as many for central milwaukee as a rural area of the state. if he loses, he will pick up delegates. if he loses by more than ten votes, he may be shutout. if he loses by single digits, you can chalk that up to this was not a good state. >> joan, quickly here on the democratic side, hillary clinton expected to lose in wisconsin. what, if anything, does that mean for new york? >> i don't think it means anything for new york. sanders has had hard time with other wins and building momentum. >> thank you for joining us. >> thank you. before you go outside, you may be want to bundle up. it is about to feel a lot more
7:12 am
like winter. a big drop in temperatures in the middle of the country and then supposed to give a wintry blast to the northeast. dylan is tracking all of that. say it ain't so, dylan dreyer. >> it is april. we get the ups and downs. let's look at yesterday. new york made it to 79 degrees. 69 in boston. 83 in washington, d.c. yesterday. syracuse was up into the 60s. we got the polar vortex up to the north. it shifted a bit and pushed the jet stream to the south. by the time we get to tomorrow morning, look at some of the windchills. marquette, 9 degrees. windchill in detroit tomorrow morning, 14 degrees. saranac lake, 2 degrees. the windchill in new york tomorrow morning is 24. high temperature rebound a little. still about 10 to 15 degrees below average for highs. with the area of low pressure, two of them moving through the great lakes into the northeast. these can quick clipper systems to produce snow.

7:14 am
difficult to watch. here is nbc's gadi schwartz. >> reporter: it was supposed to be a small bust over a $60 drug deal. >> put your hands where i can see them. >> gun! >> reporter: then chaos. albuquerque police lieutenant greg brackel opened fire on what turned out to be his own undercover officer. video comes at the end of the 15-month investigation. lawyers say the lieutenant did not attend the morning briefing and should have known where his officer was sitting. >> i thought you were the bad guy. >> reporter: use of force experts are wondering why he approached the car. >> you have an officer with limited operation on an operation in progress. >> reporter: you hear the lieutenant sobbing. on the other side of the car, the suspect gets out begging not

cell phones as the calls for him to step down over an alleged affair grow louder. we get the latest from that from nbc's sarah dallof. >> reporter: the latest calls for impeachment, robert bentley is not backing down. >> nothing illegal or doing that would affect the people of alabama or my job. >> i have no intention of resigning. >> reporter: with the state ethics committee under way with the investigation, now federal investigators looking at possible misuse of funds by the governor and the allegations of him and top adviser rebecca mason. the phone calls between the two still grabbing headlines. the controversy spilling into the ink of political cartoons. the governor spent more than $1,700 on cell phones at best buy last year.

this morning in today's health, as spring is getting under way and mosquitoes are increasing. there is little information on the zika virus. on friday, the centers for disease control and prevention issued important information. we have dr. natalie azar here with us to tell us what it means. let's start with the recommendations. how worried should we be going into mosquito season in the country? >> you know, craig, difficult question to answer because we haven't seen any locally acquired infections from a mosquito infected with virus. all of the locally acquired infections have been sexually transmitted. we have been showing people a map for weeks showing where the cdc thinks the greatest likelihood of zika is in the united states. that area includes southern states, florida, texas, but
7:42 am
we're also seeing the cdc expanding that scope a bit to include parts of the northeast. >> how do they come up with the map? how do they choose the states? >> based on climate. think about it. a mosquito, the reason we're concerned and pan americas effected is because the mosquito thrives in warm, moist area. areas high and dry, places in the midwest for example, don't need to be as concerned. >> if someone is diagnosed with the zika virus now, what is the cdc recommending? >> for women, if you are diagnosed with zika virus or symptoms consistent with zika, the recommendation is wait eight weeks before trying to conceive. if you are a man, who has been infected with zika virus, or had symptoms of zika, the recommendation is to wait six months. if you are a man and woman and have traveled to an area, but experienced no symptoms and have not been infected, the
7:43 am
recommendation for men and women is to wait eight weeks. craig, i think it is important to make mention of a report that came out in the england journal last week that highlighted one case report of a pregnant woman where zika virus was detected up to ten weeks after exposure. i mention this because our guidance on waiting eight weeks right now for women is based on previously understanding how long the virus remains in the blood. i don't want to get mired down in the details, but it is important to highlight that guidance from the cdc will evolve and changing and they will update as new information is coming in. the cdc has not made a change in the recommendation, but understanding that pregnant women may harbor the virus for longer than we originally thought than 11 days. may change the guidance moving forward. as of today, this is the recommendation.
7:44 am
>> a lot of folks understandably concerned about it. >> craig, i say this all the time. cdc has a very easily navigatable web site. >> dr. natalie, thank you. a new anchor challenge. two truths and a lie. you won't want to miss this one there's a place for vacationers who seek more than just a little time off. the ones who choose to go big or stay home. ♪ come with me now...
