7:06 am
respected but as you saw in the endorsement, first of all, he did it over the radio and didn't appear with ted cruz and spent a big chunk of his time talking about the positives of donald trump so little or no effect. if you want an endorsement donald trump got it which was bobby knight, the follower coach of indiana university. that i think is the endorsement that could have an impact in the race. >> bobby knight, a huge, huge name in indiana as paula has been reminding me all morning. matt, thank you. we appreciate your metaphors and s similes. martha raddatz goes one-on-one with senator ted cruz tomorrow about to make perhaps a last stand in indiana. >> bona fide fact, do not underestimate the power of bobby knight. tragedy at a carnival. two teens thrown from a ride at a texas church. one died and an investigation is under way and abc's marci gonzalez is here following it all for us. hi, marci. >> reporter: police say two of the
