6:16 am
here in the next hour or so. here's the real issue with it, it seems to me. it's the roads because it's going to be slushy out there. it's going to be wet. obviously people get errands done. keep that in mind. be extra careful once the wet weather moves in. now to our decision 2016 coverage. presidential candidate ted cruz is adding about two dozen delegates to his count after sweeping republican contest in colorado's congressional district. cruz could pick up a dozen more delegates colorado's republican convention later today. he still trails front-runner donald trump more than 200 delegates in the race for their party's nomination. democrats running for the white house have a contest in wyoming today and polls show that bernie sanders is leading hillary clinton heading into that caucus. sanders and clinic are also making a push for new york right now. yesterday the vermont senator gave a speech outside of the brooklyn apartment building where he grew up. sanders spoke of a movement away
