7:04 am
>> indiana, the people are too smart to listen to this stuff. i think it'll have a reverse effect. i do. >> reporter: cruz defending the deal, all in on next week's midwest primary. >> indiana gets a straight and direct choice between our campaign and donald trump. >> reporter: still hours in, the temporary truce appears to be fraying, with kasich down playing the partnership, saying it's no big deal. >> you're going to tell your voters in indiana to support ted cruz? >> no, no, no. i'm not going to go tell anybody w to vote. i never told them not to vote for me. >> reporter: at the same time, kasich's co-chair in indiana is kond contradicting the candidate. kasich is asking his supporters indiana to vote for cruz so trump doesn't win indiana. cruz is doing the same. kasich unleashing ing kasich.
7:05 am
>> i never saw a human being eat in such a disgusting fashion. >> reporter: later, attacks on hillary clinton. >> do i look like a president? how handsome am i? i'm looking at my competitors. does hillary look presidential to you? >> reporter: clinton calling the billionaire out of touch. >> you don't fly the big jet in, nd it and make a big speech and insult everybody you can think of, and then go back, get on the big jet and go back to, you know, youri' country clubhouse in florida or your penthouse in new york. >> reporter: looking to lock up the democratic nomination, clinton, during an msnbc town hall, insisting she doesn't need to adopt sanders' policies to sure a nite, party this fall. >> i am winning. i'm winning because of what i stand for and what i've done and what my ideas are. >> back to the republicans briefly. ted cruz's team trying to add oxygen to its campaign, has now

7:07 am
donald trump has zero chance of being able to beat hillary clinton. he loses in every single poll. i win in every single poll. >> but there is a deal in place -- >> well -- >> -- between your campaign and the cruz campaign. >> i understand. it is a matter of resources. look, in a political campaign, matt, you've got to be in a position of where you apply your resources where you think you have the best chance. the fact is, i don't have unlimited resources. the fact is, just like in wisconsin, where i applied very few resources. the teams came together and same, okay, with the resources that we have, where would you like to compete? where would we like to compete? >> governor kasich, savannah here, there is still confusion. ted cruz is telling your supporters in indiana, vote for me. we have you saying to those who support you in indiana, vote for me. what's the -- >> well, no. no. >> -- bottom line?
7:08 am
if you want to stop trump, vote for cruz, don't vote for me? >> what i'm telling people -- i'm not telling people anything in indiana because i'm not campaigning in indiana. voters are smart enough to figure out what they want to do. >> what's the point? there is a grand strategy. >> you guys -- listen, you guys are the ones that are confused and upset. we're not. i mean, the fact of the matter is, i'm going to be going on thursday to oregon. ted cruz is not going to oregon. he may be in indiana. i'm not going to indiana. i'm not spending resources there. i'm not going on television. >> governor -- >> it's just the way it goes. >> just to be clear, if all of your supporters still vote for you in indiana, and then the cruz supporters vote for cruz, then trump will win. what is the point of the deal? >> i think you're having a hard time figuring this out. >> i am. >> but i'm not. we're not. you may be, but weme're not.
7:09 am
not over there doing town halls. television ads. wees'll see how it all turns out. i think you'll understand that when somebody is not over there campaigning and putting effort in andrepending money on television -- look, you guys are hung up on process. here's the bottom line, the bottom line is, donald trump cannot beat hilary lary clinton. if we don't beat clinton, the republican party will give up the supreme court, we'll l e the united states senate. all surveys indicate it. i'm going to be elected president. e fact is, we are going to go to an open convention where people are goingns to consider, who is it that has the record of creating jobs and giving hope to families, and who can beat hillary clinton? plain and simple. >> so we can end on a pla and simple vote, the people in in em ople indiana who are watching, primary day
7:10 am
>> i'm not getting into that, matt. things are not so plain and simple. i don't tell my voters what to do. first of all, i don'td. have voters. there are people who live in indiana who will have to make a conclusion. john kasich is over here voting or not. if i'm not campaigning, i will get fewer votes than if i were over there campaigning. the same way that ted cruz will get fewer votes in oregon if he's not there. what's so -- i don't understand what's so -- what the big deal is about this, other than the fact that he and i both would prefer to have an open convention, where delegates can pick the person who can best defeat hillary clinton. end of story. >> i've never heard a presidential candidate will be unwilling to go on television and tell people in a given state, vote for me. >> listen, matt, this whole business is about stopping hillary clinton from being president. i have laid out a strategy, and i have not told anybody to not vote for me.
7:11 am
you know what? when you don't campaign in certain areas in any kind of a race, guess what? your turnout goes down. i don't t l people how to vote. i am not in that state right now. i will be in other states. i will be at the convention, trying to become president of the united states because i have the record and the capability to carry out the job and win in the fall. >> governor, you're nice to spend time with us this morning. >> you'r thetbest. >> let's bring in chuck todd, molederator of "meet the press." >> i'm sorry, matt, you banged your head against the wall. we'll have t- treat the wounds or something. >> it is confusing. >> it is confusing, and it's more confusing by the day. especially when he won't say that. i think it gets to the root of the problem here, of this deal. whatever you want to describe this deal. >> let's say there's no deal,
7:12 am
if there is a deal, chuck, is ituso late? >> i think it is too late. donald trump is basically just under 400 delegates away from the magic number. he's at 845. when you look at what we're staring at today, and this is why i think this deal -- if this deal had been cut a month ago, have won maryland. i think he could have won pennsylvania. it's possible he could have won connecticut. this was not going to be a good night for ted cruz. but they didn't cut that deal. instead, donald trump is going to sweep tonight. donald trump is probably going to win 95 delegates tonight. he's going to cut what he needs down literally -- needs 400. he'll need 50% of remaining delegates. all because they couldn't cut the deal when you asked kasich that question a month ago. if they'd cut it a month ago, we'd be in a different situation. they're doing it out of desperation. kasich was honest about that, resource issue. money wasn't coming in to either campaign.
7:13 am
deal but the cruz folks didn't want t s >> the kasich campaign wanted to do it for six weeks. the cruz people finally did it. simply in indiana, the only way for them to win was get kasich out of the way. >> pennsylvania on the republican side. get to that one? >> yes, i'm getting there. there you go. so today, only 17 are available. the most interesting people are going to be the 54 unbound delegates we're looking at here. they get directly elected. they don't have to vote how the state voted. 60% of them in a poll said they would support the winner. if that's trump, it's fair. if trump is short, these could be the 54 most powerful people in the republican party. forget what happens to the rest of the delegates. >> those are delegates on the ballot. >> yeah. >> let's talk about the democrats. a lot of delegates up for grabs. bernie sanders still thinking he has a path? >> he really doesn't. he's admitting it's a narrow path.
7:14 am
states tonight. rhode island, maybe connecticut and pennsylvania, but she'll win more delegates because she dominates in a couple other states. she will actually net more delegates tonight, even if he wins more states, which has been the story of the primary campaign for him. >> was there a deal or wasn't there a deal? >> again, i feel you banged your head against the wall for everybody this morning. >> chuck, thank you. another major story. dangerous storms. this was the scene in parts of michigan on monday. heavy rains triggering flash flooding. dylan is tracking a new threat facing tens of millions of people today. she's in for al. >> tornado alley is the area we're foe cushion cusing on today. we have severe thunderstorm watches. the orange boxes indicate the severe thunderstorm warnings we're already seeing this morning. then we'll get a break and the real activity will start to get going later on this afternoon. we're looking at the chance of perhaps over the next couple of hours, large hail, damaging wind gusts with these super cells that are developing.
7:15 am
evening, that's when we're going to see the chance of three to four inch diameter hail. that's baseball, softball and grapefruit sized hail possible with some of the storms. the biggest threat will be in southern nebraska and northern kansas. we could also see a few strong tornadoes that could develop. then this whole storm system will develop into one of those systems that continues to spread east through the night. still with the threat of he severe storms. during the overnight hours when it's dark, it makes it that much more dangerous. through the afternoon and into tomorrow morning, some of the storms will hold together tomorrow morning. they'll move through the st. louis area, little rock, stretching down to the gulf of mexico. wednesday afternoon, another round of storms will fire up. we're looking at the chance of still, the larger hail. today is our biggest threat of the strong storms. tomorrow, it's a wider area, from houston through jackson, mississippi, up to memphis, including st. louis. we're not looking at the wide
7:16 am
later this afternoon. the large hail we could see later this afternoon. we're still looking at some moderate sized hail. golf ball sized hail instead. also, damaging winds. we still have to keep an eye out for some of the tornadoes. we are going to be active later on this afternoon. >> you can say that again. dylan, thank you. thet fl's deflategate scandal is back in the headlines. a federal appeals court restored the suspension of tom brady. willie is here with the latest twist on this. good morning. >> morning, guys. first, everybody in the state of indiana, vote for me when you go to the polls today. brady's initi suspension was overturned by a lower court judge last fall. in a reversal, a three-judg panel is siding with the nfl, saying commissioner roger goodell has the authority to keep brady off the field. >> drive and brady -- >> reporter: this morning, fans in new england are furious. sports radio is all about brady.
7:17 am
be that brady is a cheater, but his legacy will be -- >> oh, gosh, we'll have the lega discussion the rest of our lives. >> you will. >> reporter: entering presidential politics. >> leave tom brady alone. >> reporter: donald trump rallying in patriots country. monday, two judges on the second circuit court of appeals reinstated tom brady four-game suspension for his alleged involvement in the deflategate scandal. now, the star quarterback could be on the bench at the start of next season. the fight is not over. >> what tom brady and the nfl players association can do is fifole a petition for a rehearing before the full u . court of appeals. if they do that, the suspension will be stayed. >> r orter: in the decision, the appeals court slams brady for destroying his cell phone during the investigation, ruling theaat commissioner goodell had the authority to punish him. thanks to the league's collective bargaining agreement. the scandal shook the fl for
7:18 am
>> is tom brady a cheater? >> i don't believe so. i've always played within the rules. i would never do anuthing to eak the rules. >> reporter: in january 2010, the patriots crushed the colts at the championship game. the next day, rumors surfaced that new england had been deflating footballs. getting an advantage. in septkingr, brady and the players union won a major victory. his four-game suspension ov yerturned. until now. >> this ruling shows that the commissioner has plenty of power. essentially, it is a tie right now. two of the judges sided with tom brady and the union. the other two judges have sided with the nfl. >> we reached out to the patriots. haven't yet heard back on this one. what happens next for tom brady is what people want to know. he can go back to the same court of appeals and have all 14 judges, not just the three-judge panel, hear it again. if he fails there, the next move is the supreme court. it seems unlikely they'd take up
