on topics including their personal religious beliefs, supreme court nominees, same sex marriage and planned parenthood. the candidates all critical at various times of the president and democratic candidates bernie sanders and hillary clinton. but bush used some of his time to zero in on trump. here's one example. i will do whatever i can to avoid pushing people down to make myself look big and strong. i will not disparage people with disabilities. i will not disparage women. i won't disparage hispanics. that's not america. america, we're losing the commonality of purpose in this country now and we're breaking up into our disparate parts. if we allow politicians to prey on that whether they're people of faith or the diversity of our country, we're going to be in a heap of trouble. again, donald trump not here to hear that and other

more than half of women will buy candy and greeting cards compared to men. while nearly 60 percent of men celebrating valentine's day are expected to buy flowers this year. and it's no surprise that more men buy jewelry for their significant others. love is in the air this weekend how about loving a world war two veteran? that's what more than 300 students from richland northeast high school did this the 5th annual valentine's for vets "speed dating" event brings a personal touch to history. students had a chance to hear their personal stories when fighting for our country.

ones getting ready. elections workers across the state are preparing for the busy weekends ahead. they're also already taking absentee votes. wis's mike desumma joins us now from our newsroom with more on that part of the story. mike. dawndy richland county alone is just one spot where election preps are in the final stages. the goal is to have more than 500 voting machines moved into place by noon tomorrow. that's according to county elections director samuel selph. those machines he says will go to 134 sites across the county --- where on primary days roughly 1,000 volunteers will be on hand to help residents cast their ballots. now typically he says richland county has had 149 polling locations open for elections. due to the fact that the primaries will be on the weekends this year -- the county has had to merge a few sites together to accommodate other events taking place. selph says in all voters headed to the polls shouldn't notice too much of a difference. "these polling sites are sites
5:34 pm
the same location anyway. ya know like we have some places where we have two polling sites...one on one side of that particular building and one on another side and so what we did was just combine that operation in this process." selph says so far his office is expecting a strong turnout for the 2016 primaries --- specifically when republicans get their time at the ballot box a week from saturday. he says so far therr have been 5,000 requests for absentee ballots in richland county. during the 2012 primary --- only a little over 2,000 absentee votes were turned in. in the newsroom, mike desumma, get a read on south carolina voters ahead of the first in the south primary. in columbia this morning, msnbc quizzed our charles molineaux about the landscape in the midlands. and south carolina offers some big changes from what we saw in iowa and new
5:35 pm
msnbc has set up shop in the liberty tap room in the vista and this morning i sat down with chris jansing to talk about what we've been seeing over the past year of this campaign. "you've seen, obviously here in south carolina, a difference in going to a sanders event and dave trump event and a clinton event. what do you see is the difference with sanders, it's funny, and for that matter with trump as well, some of us can remember, oh, ralph nader, ross perot, john anderson, the great independent going on and is storming me a status of the political body. the big difference this time is that both sanders and trump are running in mainstream political parties. but the energy and the feeling of rebelliousness and and knocking on the door of the big establishment that is very much evident, and the enthusiasm, and the huge turnout that they get at these events. i was at the trump event just last week in lexington county and he had about 3000 people in a barn, and then a tent just you get when you see these events is pretty impressive, the macro events
5:36 pm
definitely." another big issue we got to look at is hillary clinton's strength among south carolina's black voters, long a devoted constituency, but one which bernie sanders has been trying to show he's on their side. the talk now in the 2016 presidential race is the importance of south carolina being the first in the south primary. shortly ago, i asked nbc's chuck todd whether the political landscape here would eliminate serious rivals of the front-runner - or cause the rivals to surge. 1. talk on the importance of the first in the south primary. south carolina historically can be a "firewall" to eliminate any serious rivals to the front-runner. do you see that happening or is this a time for serious rivals especially in the gop
5:37 pm
look, i think this time south carolina is not the firewall this time, it is simply going to winnow the field...it was the frontrunner protection program was the role it has played in every other republican primary except 2012. i anticipate it being the primary that helps us figure out who is going to be the third republican that can challenge trump and cruz in sort of the first how will candidates be affected as south carolina's primary is larger than iowa's and new hampshire's. it's going to be nastier, but also all over the place. everyone is going after each other. it's getting a little bit circular. 3. last night's debate between hillary clinton and bernie sanders they you can watch meet the press with chuck todd on sunday from 9

i support bernie sanders because i think that his ideas are much more forward thinking and innovative than any of the other candidates. when bernie sanders is engaging with the black lives matter movement it's proof positive that he doesn't just give lip service to being supportive of issues that matter to people of color in this country. and when he is elected we will see long-overdue changes to our criminal justice system that continues to criminalize people just for being black. sanders: i'm bernie sanders, and i approved the message. friday turns mostly cloudy as low pressure develops off the coast with highs in the upper 40s. expect a sunny to partly cloudy
