donald trump. that means going forward, since the field is winnowing, he's going to have to gain not just maintain support. and if this crowd here in georgia is any indication, the campaign is comfort they'll be able to do that. >> thanks so much. among the democrats, new momentum for hillary clinton today after caucus voters in nevada decided to place their bets on her. clinton's victory over bernie sanders puts her in a stronger position going into the democratic primary in south carolina next saturday. we get more on that tonight from kristen welker. >> reporter: hillary clinton riding a wave of fresh momentum. >> is this a great night or what? >> reporter: after a decisive victory in critical nevada. >> some may have doubted us, about but we never doubted each other. >> reporter: to bernie sanders, the loss is a big blow, today courting african-american voters at a baptist church in south carolina. >> reporter: and it was black voters who largely delivered
