sri srinivasan considered the leading choice born in india, raised in kansas, a judge here on the appeals court. merrick garland, 63 years old, older than most, the chief judge of the appeals court long seen as a moderate and paul watford, the court's third african-american. in making this, president obama sent an e-mail to his supporters saying he's doing his job and it's time for the senate right across the street here to do theirs. there's little chance of that. this is about to become like everything else a partisan war. george. >> got that right, terry. you'll be anchoring our special coverage. >> 11 o:00 a.m. we want to get to primary results. a strong showing for hillary clinton, the democratic front-runner winning the majority of tuesday's races. her campaign, well, they broke out in song. ♪ it goes on and on and on ♪ strangers waiting >> and donald trump had a big night too wins at least three
7:03 am
states, but john kasich kept his hopes alive by taking all the delegates in his home state of ohio, that makes it harder for trump to wrap up the nomination early. >> kasich was in the zone. his campaign sent out this video of him making this shot and, you know, after seeing that we were condering if it was a lucky shot, so we went to the source and this is what we found. he made at least three in a row. his campaign not they're saying this is a whole new ball game and that this race -- >> very good. >> and the knicks are also reaching out. one way or the other he's going to have a job. >> we reached out to the source to make sure. >> all right. we're covering every angle as you can imagine for the race for the white house. we have tom llamas in palm beach, florida, this morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump calls this the biggest story in the wore. a political outsider bringing in new voters winning and knocking off seasoned politicians. now, the field is smaller today,
7:04 am
but trump may have to take this fight all the way to the convention floor. donald trump wanted to deliver a knockout employee and overnight he nearly did taking at least three of the five states including tuesday's crown jewel, florida. even trump was shocked. >> nobody has ever, ever in the history of politics received the kind of negative advertising that i have. mostly false, i wouldn't say 100% but about 90%. and you explain it to me because i can't. my numbers went up. i don't understand it. nobody understands it. >> reporter: the trump train ran over the competition everywhere, but ohio. a confetti bomb rained down on ohio governor john kasich after his big win there. >> i will not take the low road to the highest office in the land. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: kasich who has virtually no chance of reaching the number of delegates needed to win the nomination outright
7:05 am
is hoping for a contested convention. >> well, guess what, tomorrow i'm going to philadelphia. [ cheers and applause ] and then i'm going -- i don't know -- all over the country, okay. >> reporter: in florida trump's victory silenced senator marco rubio's campaign. >> while we are on the right side, this year, we will not be on the winning side. america is in the middle of a real political storm, a real tsunami and why should have seen it coming. >> reporter: cruz who picked up delegates but no victories ca calling on rubio's supporters to come to his side. >> only two campaigns has a plausible path to the nomination, ours and donald trump's. nobody else has any mathematical possibility whatsoever. >> reporter: now donald trump says he'll unify the republican party. there's only one problem. exit polls last night show 44%
7:06 am
of non-trump voters say they're not going to vote for him november. george, he's going to need those republicans on his side if he wants to beat the democratic nominee. >> many to, thanks. let's talk to mr. trump. he joins us by phone. ahead in missouri as well. how do you wrap this up? >> well, i think they just called missouri. i think we won missouri also, so we had four wins last night which is a great feeling and we just keep going. i mean, it's -- i think we do it before getting to the convention, frankly, i think it shouldn't be that hard. but we -- i think we'll do fantastically in arizona. we have the backing of sheriff joe, popular guy out there and lots of others and i think we'll do very well. >> you still have to win more than half the delegates going forward to wrap it up before the nomination. both your opponents say they can block you before the convention. so what would it mean if you go in with the most delegates but don't get the nomination? >> well, i think that would be very bad for the party. we have people that are, you know, very for vent and they love what we're saying.
7:07 am
they're joining the party. people that never voted before. they're some of our biggest fans and this is a great thing. we've brought people into this democracy of ours and it's really an amazing thing to watch. millions and millions of people and that's really the big story. i mean, the big story is how many people are coming to the polls. we're up 70%. some of the states we had 102% increase from what it was four years ago, so there's a tremendous fervor out there and i think the republicans and the leadership of the republicans should grasp it because you're going to win in november if they take advantage of it. if they don't take advantage of it, if they play games, if they say, well, he's 50 votes short and therefore he's not getting it or we're going to give it to somebody that got thrown out of the primary in the second week, you're going to have a problem. there's going to be a tremendous -- there's going to be a tremendous problem, i think. >> what do you say to those four in ten republicans who went to the polls last night and said they would seriously consider a
7:08 am
third party if you're the nominee? >> well, i understand what they're saying because it's been a very tough campaign. it's been a very nasty campaign and they were with somebody else and the somebody else may not be in the race anymore. and there are a lot of hard feelings and so i understand it, but just let me tell you a third party guarantees not 90% or 99%, 100% that yourdids will win, probably hillary, i guess it's hillary, looks like it if she gets to the starting gate which she probably will, frankly, but it guarantees -- now you have four supreme court judgeships coming up that means they would take over for 50 years probably this country will never be the same and probably will never -- >> should the senate give president obama's choice a hearing? >> no, i don't think so. i think they should do what they're doing and wait till the next president and let the next president pick. i would do -- i would do that. >> finally, mr. trump, you mentioned hillary clinton. she took aim at you last night
7:09 am
in her speech and is already looking to the general election. she condemned what she called your bluster and bigotry and said you're not strong, you're wrong. how would you counter that in a general election? >> well, i don't think hillary has the strength or energy to be a great president or to be president. i really don't. i mean, i understand where we're coming from. i understand exactly what i'm saying. she does not have the strength. she does not have the energy and i think she would be not a very good president and i think it would be a big mistake. i think in many ways she'll be an embarrass many. look at what she's going on with her e-mails. she's under federal investigation. i think she would be a major embarrassment for the country. >> thanks for joining us. >> thanks very much. >> george, speaking of hillary clinton, going to the democratic race now and she had a big night overnight. sweeping bernie sanders in at least four of the races. abc's cecilia vega has the latest of the she's also in palm beach, florida, for us, of course, one of the states where clinton was victorious. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning.
7:10 am
it was a huge win for hillary clinton and a big blow for bernie sanders. while he is still vowing to carry on with this campaign, this win gives clinton the boost she needs to move forward in locking up this nomination. it was a night that had hillary clinton beaming. >> thank you, florida. thank you, north carolina. thank you, ohio. >> reporter: a sweeping win leaving clinton and her supporters looking ahead to one thing. >> we are moving closer to securing the democratic party nomination and winning this election in november. >> reporter: clinton now closer than ever to closing the deal. >> if we win in november, i know our future will be brighter tomorrow than yesterday. >> reporter: the win in ohio surprising even her own campaign. but now she's focused on another rival. >> when we hear a candidate for president call for rounding up 12 million immigrants, banning
7:11 am
all muslims from entering the united states, when he embraces torture, that doesn't make him strong, it makes him wrong. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: bernie sanders in arizona not once mentioning the loss. >> don't let people tell you that you can't think big. >> reporter: or what comes next. >> you do not have to accept the status quo. >> reporter: clinton telling me she's in no rush to ask him to drop out any time soon. >> it's his campaign to run any way that he chooses. i went all the way to the end against barack obama. i'm not ever going to tell anybody that they should step out. >> reporter: and proof that hillary clinton is already looking ahead to a general election, a new ad that she released in arizona, it's about immigration and robin, i can tell you it features one of her rival, not bernie sanders, but donald trump. >> got that. all right, cecilia, thank you.
7:12 am
abc's jon karl joins us with the race on those all-important delegates and, jon, let's start with the democrats. the results yesterday, how does that change the race? >> well, robin, a huge night for hillary clinton. she won four of the five states, still waiting on missouri and that means she won last night the lion's share of the delegates. look at this, 408 delegates to just 237 for bernie sanders. where does it leave the race now? hillary clinton so far is two-thirds of the way to getting the delegates she needs to clinch the nomination. she is getting close to a mathematical lock on this. bernie sanders would need to win all the remaining states by a landslide to catch up with her. >> as we know, jon, not as clear cut when it comes to the republicans and the delegates. >> not as clear cut but this was also a huge night for donald trump. he's won three of the five states so far, missouri also still close to call. he lost ohio but look at the delegates. the lion's share of the delegates going to donald trump last night. kasich coming in second with 75
7:13 am
and in terms of where he stands so far he has not a big a lead over hillary clinton but more than half the way. as for john kasich, that huge win, you saw the confetti in ohio, he would need, robin, 101% of the remaining delegates to clinch before the convention. 101%. that's hard to do. >> yes, it is. all right, jon, thank you. george. >> okay, here with matthew dowd our political analyst. let's begin with the republicans. donald trump has a clearer path to the nomination. no guarantee though he can get that 1,237. he said he can unite the party. big job. >> huge and as we saw in the exit polls he's got a problem with the non-trump voters. the folk if they were to take out trump are a huge problem. the trump voters, many won't vote for a non-trump candidate. one thing that is fascinating, contested convention we have not seen a second ballot and two things have changed. one, the voters are now
7:14 am
involved. no primary the last time we had a contested convention and, two, technology and tv. a contested convention in this convention is going to be the most unique thing we've ever seen. >> donald trump, if he has the lead and they take it away for him disaster for the party. >> it would be a disaster in cleveland. i think that basically we're at the precipice of the republican party being broken already. >> hillary clinton wrapped this up? >> yes. he got no psychology and energy out this so i think she's well on her way and will be the nominee. >> matthew dowd, thanks very much. back to robin. another big headline, that severe weather slamming the midwest. storms, twisters ripping through the region overnight, 20 million people caught in its path. ginger, of course, is tracking it all for you. >> i start with the picture of the willis tower. lightning striking downtown chicago. at least 50 storm reports from missouri to michigan overnight. overnight, hail, lightning, and tornadoes. >> three vortices on the ground. >> reporter: at least nine
7:15 am
reported twisters spinning through iowa and illinois. watch as lightning ill loom nights the horizon in green valley revealing a haunting rotating sky. in springfield, two funnel clouds just hours ago. after a night of severe weather in the prairie state, this morning, officials are still assessing all the damage. winds in excess of 70 miles per hour destroying numerous homes and structures. the severe winds ripping this barn apart. these horses hitting the highway. cars creeping along roads as they take a hammering from golf ball-sized hail. in leroy, illinois, a inch of hail on the ground and fog rolling in making for a ghoulish scene for those still on the road. >> there's nowhere to go to get inside. >> reporter: in iowa, hail hitting so hard, drivers taking shelter. that storm is still creeping to the north and east right now in wisconsin. these things rotate counterclockwise and behind this storm, that's where you'll find
7:16 am
the biggest next hazard and that would be wind. some of the gusts with wind advisories could reach up to 60 miles per hour, ohio, back to the dakotas. much more coming up. thank you very much. we turn to amy with the morning's other big headlines. and a nightmare for commuters. >> it really is, robin. the second bigiest subway system in the country is shut down, the d.c. metro closed all day for safety inspections nearly nearly 750,000 without a ride to work or school. authorities want to inspect the electric cables in the system blamed for recent fires including that deadly one last year. well, a student from the university of virginia has just been sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in north korea. otto warmbier is accused of trying to steal a propaganda banner that was hanging in his hotel. missouri accepted the justice department to overhaul the 'tis force and court system in the wake of michael brown shooting and it addresses what the feds are calling a practice of unconstitutional conduct.
7:17 am
and in ohio, some frightening moments for an at&t worker when his van got stuck on railroad tracks. he went to grab his bag, seemingly unaware that a train was coming. a nearby officer got him out of the way. the train demolished the van. whoo. but thankfully he was not inside and no one was injured. and proof that watching the news can change your life. matthew chapman will receive a $100,000 reward for notifying police after he spotted two inmates who had escaped from jail. he recognized the van and them from news reports. he's a self-described news junkie and guess what, the money couldn't have come at a better time because chapman was homeless but he is now using that money to start a new life. he also said he's going to give some money to his adult children who are struggling, as well. >> that's great. >> the guys are behind bars. >> he did the right thing. did the right thing and something good happened for him. and now an exam of what
7:18 am
happens when you complain. john kasich won big in ohio but he hasn't always gotten celebrations he expects. now take a look at this. for his showing for his 100th town hall in new hampshire last month, he got about, what, ten pieces of confetti that were dropped so what did he do? he complained and when he complained, his staff, they turned it all around and they delivered. look what happens last night. an avalanche of confetti for his huge win and i'm pretty sure the gop candidate, he's drowning in a big victory from last night and i think he's still trying to find the confetti all over the place. who knows. >> be careful what you wish for. >> he got it. >> he did. >> let's back go to ginger. >> more on the win. >> gusts of 47 miles per hour in some suburbs around chicago. later this afternoon, grand rapids, 47, wausau
7:19 am
>> no showers around this morning. a little bit of patchy fog here and there but most of you as we take a look outside are seeing a nice sunny start to the day and that includes center city. temperatures are a little cool. down around 40 and even the upper 30's in some spots. mid 40's in others. here's your exclusive accuweather 7-day, clouds will increase, and there's a slight chance of a spotty shower especially north of philadelphia. mainly dry and mild with a high of 67. 65 for saint patrick's day with a mix of clouds and sun, a spotty shower. in the 50's after that. the stad
