11:03 pm
speech for a victory speech. he did congratulate marco rubio for running a great campaign in florida after smashing rubio on this primary night and then a typical trump moment where he said and told supporters rather that we are going to knock the hell out of isis. >> we are going start winning again. this country is going to start winning again. we don't win anymore. >> trump thanked florida voters for putting him on top but in the end he called out the media calling some disgusting. live in palm beach, i'm carson chambers, abc action news. meanwhile trump driving marco rubio out of the race with a win. the florida senator suspending his campaign.
11:04 pm
>> reporter: yeah, we are standing outside the fiu arena where it is official. it is the end of the road for marco rubio. not too big of a shocker that he lost florida but the big question would he bow out of the race entirely. up until this point he says he will move on to utah regardless of the results but tonight he told a rowdy crowd of supporters and uttered the words i'm suspending my campaign. >> while it is not god's plan that i be president in 2016 or maybe ever, and while today my campaign is suspended, the fact that i have come this far is evidence of how special america truly is. definitely became a somber mood at that point. i saw some supporters with tears in their eyes. remember these are are volunteers that spent hours on
11:05 pm
trying to get out the vote but at the end of the day, too little, too late. >> going beyond the numbers and taking a look at how the gop race shaped up in the bay area. abc action news anchor laura harris in the studio to give us a bigger perspective opinion and who was going to win once the numbers came in. >> let me show you this picture. it is easy to see the red and the counties that donald trump won and he only lost one to marco rubio in miami-dade. hillsborough and pinellas and every county that we have, pasco and her nando and every last one and manatee county and you see the numbers, they are amazing how much donald trump won, talking a landslide when it comes to the gop which is probably one of those reasons why marco rubio said this is the end of the road. >> tons of trump's supporters celebrating.
11:06 pm
that's where we find abc action news reporter michael paluska. >> reporter: jamison as he can imagine trump supporters loud and still here celebrating but when trump took the stage at 10:00 they made a lot of noise. take a listen. >> and you know some of the key issues that they were hanging on were the economy, every time he mentioned the economy and taking jobs away from other countries that have taken them from mexico there were big cheers and also of course he took jabs at the media and one woman told us why she is voting for trump. she said because trump is trump. he does what he wants. >> he says what it is like what an average american feels and what average americans' life is about and i don't think that all of this negativity will impact trump campaign. so that's the thing they like about him.
11:07 pm
wants to say and that's what a lot of people in the public want to hear. the big question now is who will support donald trump. moving forward, will he get an endorsement from marco rubio, those are a lot of questions that have to be answered and whether or not he can unify the republican party. live in tampa. michael paluska, abc action news. michael, thank you. let's go to the democratic side. hillary clinton looking to increase her lead over bernie sanders with a win in florida and claimed a landslide victory and take a look. clinton was 64% of the vote, nearly doubling senator sanders, 33%. watching from west palm beach. laura has reaction. laura. >> reporter: as you just mentioned such a big night for hillary clinton getting the key victories in key states including florida. got huge cheers from the crowd
11:08 pm
she talked about bringing more jobs through infrastructure and manufacturing and also about reducing college debt and making it easier for college students to bear the burden of going to school and paying for it and she slammed candidate donald trump saying she believes he is unfit to lead the country. >> if we work together we can make a real difference in people's lives. if we reach out to treat each other with respect, kindness and even love, instead of bluster and bigoty and if we lift each other up there is nothing we can't accomplish together. and with all of those strong leads clinton feels she is closer to speaking and securing that democratic nomination.
11:09 pm
supporters celebrating her wins tonight. this is one of her four watch parties. voters gathered at district tavern and cheered and praised clinton in florida and north carolina and ohio so far. >> we are excited. we really feel like it is just now a matter of getting all the way to washington. looking ahead the clinton camp will host a party in cape coral encouraging supporters to help the clinton campaign. the race between clinton and sanders not close in florida. abc action news anchor laura harris breaking down just how much of a blow-out it was in the bay area. laura. and wendy, let's look. when you look at tampa bay it was all hillary and north of florida and you talk about the panhandle there are a few bernie sanders counties but kind of looking like trump's win today. it was very, very convincing. wendy.

11:19 pm
there. so when you bring the warmer air out of the southeast or off of the gulf in this case and that increases the moisture and turns it into clouds right over the ground which by the way is another name for fog and we have big visibility issues. it will happen again tomorrow and it will happen on thursday as well until we begin to see more changes on friday and there in the form of rain. now, not going to be a washout but we are looking for clouds this weekend. 73 right now. and all of the reporting stations from tampa to clear water and st. pete, conditions are warm but as i said the afternoon highs over the last couple of days in the mid to 10 degrees above normal. you get it warmed up in the upper 60s to low 70s with high dew points and you are bound to see some fog. at least this time of the year. in fact, a lot of folks along the beach are facebooking us and saying dennis we did not

the way it will play out the next few days, more clouds than sun, right along the coast and you go maybe five miles inland and then all of a sudden that sunshine is abundant. overnight kind of socked in at 7:30, there will be spots we won't have to worry about and the more inland you are the quicker that the fog burns off. and then by later on in the afternoon you can still see, look along the coastline. stacked up from top to bottom, visibility extremely low offshore and along the beach and watch what happens, even through thursday morning, we are looking at another opportunity for widespread fog. then by friday we are tracking a couple of weather systems, not one but two and each one will increase the rain chances and we may see an isolated shower friday, saturday and sunday. we are looking at a lot of
11:21 pm
look at the highs along the coast, low to mid-70s. you go downtown and you can go east of tampa and then in the mid to upper 80s tomorrow. we had a lot of folks say they hit 90s today east of i-75 and yet along the coast it was cloudy and cool. now talking about that rain, we are good to go until friday and all of a sudden saturday and sunday there it comes, rain chances solid, both days, lingering into early on monday. for the voters, dense fog advisory in effect and a pretty decent chance that some of that advisory material comes inland, first thing in the morning, ivan will have more as conditions develop at 4:30 and south winds at five to ten knots. there is a look at your sunrise and sunset. hour by hour the fog burns off by nine or 10:00 inland and right back in the low to mid- 80s. look at florida's most accurate seven-day forecast. the rain chances pretty much nonexistent.
