michelle: another busy weekend for candidates in vote 2016. scott thuman is here to break it all down. topping the headlines, donald trump complaining about the system being rigged when it comes to the delegate count in colorado. scott: yeah. specifically about colorado. he has been quiet. we hadn't heard a ton from him. then over the weekend in what is not the traditionable frame of thought on -- traditional frame of thought on how colorado vote. they have a state convention where representatives of the party go. they vote on who the delegates are that will go to the national convention. they will cast their vote. cruz won there and he swept. as a result, donald trump says the system is rigged. this is unfair. colorado average citizens didn't get to vote.
4:31 pm
representatives got to have a convention. because ted cruz had a better ground game in that particular system and lobbied for the support, donald trump didn't do as much. he lost. now we are hearing complaining from him. michelle: we are seeing that donald trump is missing out on some votes because his kids missed a deadline to register. scott: new york is a closed primary state. you have to be a registered republican to vote in the republican primary. two of his eldest children had not officially registered as republicans. they were democrats in the past. they didn't register as republicans and they can't vote for their father in the coming weeks. michelle: let's talk about the democrats now. bernie sanders in one conner and hillary in the other duking it out in brooklyn. scott: new york is interesting. this is an adopted state for hillary clinton. senate from there, we know. bernie sanders from there
4:32 pm
they both believe they should win the state. the problem is while hillary clinton is up double digits and doing well in the polls compared to bernie sanders she has lost the last seven states in a row. she has to stop the bleeding. i look like he could do it in new york. a lot of delegates. 291 up for grabs. it's a big vote-rich state. the last big one before march 25. michelle: we will be watching. we know you will be, too. thank you. jonathan: all right. we all have moments that we disagree with our spouse. i know. i know. it's maybe the temperature of the house or how you load the dishwasher. in the sanders household, the big issue seems to be hot dogs. watch. >> a little bit of mustard and sauerkraut. >> ketchup and onion. we don't agree on anything but politics. jonathan: she said, "we don't agree on anytng
4:33 pm
politics." that is unusual. the comments came after the saturday held a rally sunday. what is the playful sticking point between you and your spouse or your kids? we're curious. let us know! it said, our producer is telling us that is the time where you chat. there is no percentage for me to chat at all. i am always wrong and i'll go with that. my wife and i have nothing to argue about ever. michelle: she must be watching. hi, holly. not much to gripe about with the weather. it is beautiful out there. what about tomorrow? chief meteorologist doug hill has a check on the forecast. doug: we have rain in the morning but it will get back to the sun shiny look in the afternoon. live shot across the chesapeake bay. 70 der

4:36 pm
senate bill 924 to the senate and they will concur this and it will be provided across the state. jonathan: tell us what the bill does. and the authority it will would give law enforcement. >> what the senate bill 924 in the current form does is provide additional protection for harassment and malicious destruction of property and allow for the judges to give protective orders to women survivorring from the type of abuse. this abuse often escalates to physical abuse and death. so the language as it sits allow for protective order to be issued for harassment and destruction of prompt. jonathan: the issues have come up before in front of lawmakers. why is there any resistance at all? angela: this is a
4:37 pm
question. this language has been around since 2005. if you think of the women and children who died in that time, there is not any sound opposition to this bill. the only question is whether it will allow for increased privilege claims. this is tightly construed. we asked a judge to get a protective order, a judge would have to find a reasonable person would suffer mental and emotional distressed based on the acts reported. so it's not where it's a simple i broke a plate, i'm just calling to check on the kids. this is for serial and criminal harassment that is taking place. >> we wish you the best of luck with the efforts. we will let know how it turns out. thank you. michelle: breaking
