hillary clinton grabbed a much needed boost in nevada over the weekend after winning the nevada caucuses. the democratic presidential candidate is now looking ahead to south carolina's democratic primary on saturday. clinton closely edged rival vermont senator bernie sanders after days of campaigning. clinton lost to sanders by 22 points in the new hampshire primary about two weeks ago. bernie sanders wasted no time moving past nevada and is looking to gain more south carolina. sanders spoke to a rally of more people in greenville yesterday after a stop in the midlands. sanders garnered loud cheers when touching on college debt, equal pay, and our criminal justice system. he says he believes south carolina has the opportunity to make history, and that he will be the candidate to defeat the republican challenger when elected. "we have the momentum not only

primary process if you look at national polls and you want a candidate who is going to defeat donald trump you're looking at that candidate." sanders also picked up an edorsement from actor danny glover who attended the event as well. as south carolina voters head to as south carolina voters head to the polls this weekend for the democratic primary -- there's several factors that political analysts say won't be the same as with the republican. our michal higdon is live in the newsroom with more -- michal? i spoke with robert oldendick, a professor at usc. and he says because south carolina is traditionally a red state -- the winner of the republican primary has more at stake. but he says on the democratic side -- this week is going to be very different for the candidates after hillary clinton pulled out the win in nevada. oldendick says clinton has a lead in south carolina because of the broad level of support from the african-american community which oldendick says will make up about 55 percent of the
5:33 am
a reason bernie sanders will have to step up his game if they want to win the palmetto state. but, oldendick adds the winner of the south carolina democratic primary has not always gone on to win the democratic nomination. he believes the win in south carolina will come down to multiple factors. "there's the personality characteristic, is the candidate trustworthy... but there's also the issues -- where do people stand on the issues. are they closer to your positions? and then there's also the idea of credibility and will they actually be able to get things done. in the primary election you're making some calculus as to can this candidate actually win against their republican opponent in november." oldendick says what was a record turnout of voters for the republican primary here in south carolina will not be mirrored by the democrats this week. he does expect there to be a lot of voters, but nothing like what we saw back in 2008 with president obama's campaign. live in the newsroom, michal higdon, wis news 10.

jackson is in south carolina encouraging people to vote. jackson says there are close to one point two million who are eligible to vote, but only about a million of them are he will be in winnsboro this morning, then at midlands tech at noon and allen university. over the weekend, jackson made stops at churches in columbia, chester and rock hill. fresh off his first place finish in south carolina, donald trump believes he will have enough delegates to clinch the gop nomination before the party's convention in july. trump's victories in south carolina and new hampshire and second place finish in iowa has given him a decisive lead in the delegate count. some have said that if the field does not narrow in the coming weeks, the chances of having a brokered convention would increase dramatically. trump dismissed that notion to cnn's jake tapper. "...so, i have a second and i have two firsts. and new hampshire was a blowout and this one was a blowout. and, you know, i don't think, i don't see where this a... convention. and i think most of the smart people are saying there's
5:35 am
convention." trump also told tapper that he expects to win states that quote "republicans don't even think of." trump was in altanta on sunday and is now headed to nevada. after jeb bush dropped out of the race in columbia saturday night, the narrowing republican field now looks to gain supporters in nevada. trump, ted cruz, marco rubio, and ben carson all have scheduled campaign stops across nevada today. john kasich will be stumping in virginia today. meanwhile at a las vegas rally sunday- celebrity donnie wahlberg said he believes marco rubio has the right stuff. the blue bloods star and former "new kids on the block" member has officially endorsed rubio for president. wahlberg told the crowd that he's never voted for a republican before-- but rubio changed his mind. an endorsement from wahlberg-- who is a boston native-- may come in handy as part of rubio's efforts to hang tough on 'super tuesday.' massachusetts will cast its votes on that day. just coming into the wis alert center right now the commander of the u.s navy's 7th fleet says this morning - the situation in the south china sea is not a battle between the u.s and china.

"when we exited from the food court by the carousel and we turned around and looked back...there were so many people pushing out that one of the doors had actually come off the hinge and ya know so there was definitely ya know the danger of somebody getting trampled or pushed over or falling over for sure." investigators believe the shooting was isolated and began as a fist fight between two men in their early 20's who fired shots into the air. one was wearing an acid washed shirt and pants, investigators need your help finding a suspect involved in a shooting in columbia over the weekend. richland county deputies responded to a shots fired call around 4-30 sunday morning at 'darrell's place' on percival road. they found a victim shot in the lower body. he is now in the hospital

"there's the personality characteristic, is the candidate trustworthy... but there's also the issues -- where do people stand on the issues. are they closer to your positions? and then there's also the idea of credibility and will they actually be able to get things done. in the primary election you're making some calculus as to can this candidate actually win against their republican opponent in november." oldendick says what was a record turnout of voters for the republican primary here in south carolina will not be mirrored by the democrats this week. he does expect there to be a lot of voters, but nothing like what we saw back in 2008 with president obama's campaign. live in the newsroom, michal higdon, wis news
