6:11 am
let's talk about the weather. >> a little bit of rain, wet roadways. >> and director saw some snow when she woke up this morning. hopefully it will all be out of here shortly. >> absolutely. and most of it has moved east of i-95. still seeing a few scattered light snow showers, maybe a few light rain showers out there, but that will be gone by day break. the sun comes up around 6:30 in the morning and everything should be fine by then. so let's go ahead and get to our weather map because as we continue through this morning, temperatures at 38 degrees. so a little chilly, but at least we don't have the wind factor. so all in all not too bad. we will experience decreasing clouds out there today. we do have a quiet breath week, but we're still on track for 70s as we head into really mid week. temperatures out there in the 30s right now, 38 in washington, 34 in manassas, 29 in culpeper at this time. and
6:12 am
you will be dealing with. we will be dry out there. again, roads may be a little on the wet side. other than that, though, no problems out there. everybody mostly botabove freez. maybe shenandoah valley some temperatures still below the freezing mark. so 30 to 40 degrees. all in all not too bad out there. so we did have a disturbance pass through, but most has moved again to the east. may be dealing with a few light snow showers especially east of baltimore coming through the eastern shore. but we are dry right now. and that's the way it will be for much of the day today. not only today, but we look to have dry weather as we continue through this workweek. not a lotting for on, so if you're traveling out and about, again, not looking too bad. seems like snow showers coming through new york, but other than that high pressure building in and it is going to be with us as we go through this workweek.
6:13 am
and temperatures rising again into the 70s. so let's get to the futurecast and show you what is going on. by 7:00, again, we'll have skies clear. so i think we will be dealing with a lot of cloud cover today, but. >>ly thoeventually the clouds cr and we'll get some sunshine this afternoon and then we'll ten to see the skies brighten as we go into the late afternoon and early evening. and then we'll go partly cloudy during the overnight and we'll keep partly cloudy skies away for your monday. but again, dry on monday. and dry on tuesday. and dry on wednesday. and thursday. and we do have some late week rain chances, but again, it isn't look until friday or saturday. and the timing of that is still left to be decided. so we'll continue to watch the computer models. but even by the time we get into wednesday, we're looking at sunny skies. next big change again will be on monday. that's when temperatures really warm up. we'll be right around 50 degrees today. a little bit warmer than yeda
6:14 am
mid-40s. we will be right around 50 degrees about that and then by the time we get into monday, well be awayround 60 degrees. so that is the next big change for tomorrow. so a look at your "7-day forecast," we're looking good through the day today. again, temperatures will increase about ten doctegrees e day and mid-70s by wednesday and thursday. we will have some rain chances friday and saturday. >> looking forward to that nice stretch. next up, we have reporter's notebook for you. >> we'll be back in 15 minutes with more of the morning's top stories. good morning. i'm pat lawson muse. this is reporter's notebook. could virginia soon be showing shades of blue? it's a question both parties are now pondering after the clinton and trump wins on super tuesday while hillary clinton's win was clear, donald trump's win was narrow with marco rubio coming on strong. trump got 34% of the xwop
6:15 am
vote. so the majority of voters say they don't want does this mean republican party this virginia? >> it probably means trouble for them in the general election. even though trump won the primary, rubio can kind of say, well, he won because he got a little closer. he still hasn't really won a primary. we know he won a caucus. and if you look at the numbers where trump won, he won more in the southern part of the state where rubio wins in the d.c. suburbs. so that tells you right there that the state isn't really sure what they want. but maybe i'm answering my own question. maybe they are sure what they want. and in the southern part of the state, they won someone like donald trump and the d.c. suburbs, they want someone like rubio. and isn't this really the issue that the republican party is facing right now with their potential nominee. >> so if trump becomes the nominee, where do the rubio and john kasich voters go in november? >> twi
6:16 am
it's interesting, governor of new jersey, moderate conservative is contemplating voting for hillary clinton if she has to. she doesn't want to. but we have the spectrum of them staying at home, nonparticipating, are or voting possibly for hillary clinton. some because they're just figuring i'll vote for any republican. he will probably get a share of them, but probably not a lot. >> and rubio spent a lot more money in virginia than any other republican candidate. and we know how important virginia will be in a general election. rubio somehow can get to the convention and somehow get the nomination, he can say, look, i was right there and i'm a guy who can win the state in the general election. >> clinton's win was impressive. 78%. and she won across all demographics. >> i think that was a bit
6:17 am
because i think you would have thought when you looked at some of the more again states that would slide more liberal in northern virginia, she even won that section over sanders. so for her supporters and for clinton, that has to be good. but we also have to emphasize the governor was out there supporting her, the governor was a former dnc dhar m krchlc chai. so she had a lot of backing and she dropped a lot of money into virginia. >> governor and congressional delegation all solidly pretty much for hillary. and she did do very well in all aspects. you wonder, though, did some of the more liberal younger people just did not vote, which the younger people are credited with doing. unfortunately for democrats. on the other land, is there beginning to be a movement starting in virginia that it isn't going to be bernie. we love bernie with our hearts, but with our heads, hillary is the one that can do the job, let's start switching. >> what about turnout? just an a
6:18 am
record turnout for the republicans, their biggest turnout since 2000. and we saw the roles reversed. in '08, it was the democrats who dominateded the turnout. >> obviously you have a candidate when you're talking about barack obama that was different pl folks were saying this could be historic, he has a different presence. you look now on the republican side, you have donald trump. he is different. he has a different presence. he has name recognition. so obviously that fuels that. so again as we move to the general election, that will make it very interesting if he ends up being the nominee because he could also help the democratic turnout. >> something for hillary for worry about. there is an enthusiasm gap. there are people turning out very, very strongly on the republican side. they're really fired up no matter who they're for. not so much for the democrats it seems. their numbers are down and that could hurt them in the fall. >> so the prospect of virginia turning blue again
6:19 am
premature, do you think? >> probably. but again, if trump is the nominee and right now it looks like he may be, his negatives are so high, once you sort of shrink down the field and there are two people, even though hillary clinton's negatives are high, they're not as high as donald trump. so if you look at the map, it would have to be trending democratic, but at this point now we woocouldn't see donald tn the position that he's in. >> democrats are doing well in virginia. they hold the senators, the governor. they seem to be relatively popular. so you have to figure there is something going on there. but you have to wonder, i think purple might be the way things turn out. maybe hillary by an edge from what i'm hearing. >> in prince william county, it's been an emotional week. thousands of people attended the funeral of officer
6:20 am
when responding to a domestic call. ronald hamilton has admitted shooting his wife crystal and the three officers who responded to the scene. he's now facing capital and first-degree murder charges. this this is a terrible tragedy and one that same say i will 1r5 illustrates just how dangerous the job of a police officer is today. >> and this is a continuation of what has been talked about even if we go back to the two policemen killed in new york city sitting in their police car and remember the statement at that time they were saying a lot of these movements now that are going forward seem like they're more anti-police. and i think what you're hearing in fairfax county, they actually use the term and put this a memorial to the young officer who was killed that blue lives matter. so they're appropriating the black lives matter to say blue lives matter. i think the fairfax county police chief made a very important point and
6:21 am
what needs to happen is don't just call us on an emergency. get to know us. we need the community to get to know us, but i think that will be a two way street probably on the other side they would say the police probably would help to get to know the community even better. >> and you do have a response relative to the police feeling that they're in grave danger, but the response some people would argue is because of the police's overly aggressive responses to crimes committed by minorities. we if go back to ferguson and n york and these other areas. so there is a lot of hostility i think on both sides here. the question is how to the police -- and there is an accusation the police are becoming more military and aggressive. of course the police as you just said are under more attack. somewhere along the line, both sides have got to start rethinking where are we going on this. how can the police be more responsive to the community and how can the people in the community who are underfire, who worry about the police, what
6:22 am
themselves, how can they do it without letting the vitreal out and the rhetoric out that heats things up. >> and of course the other issue is domestic violence. the sister of crystal hamilton has said she hopes that this will put the spotlight on the danger of keeping silent. >> well, then because it's a danger -- i think it will as police make it more of an issue, it also puts them in danger. if you listen to any chief around the country, they say that is probably the scariest call that you have because you're walking into a situation that is already volatile and you don't know where it's going. so i think it can help the tragedy in terms of bringing a spotlight of domestic violence on the victims and those involved and also the police that have to come to those calls. >> police are often the arbiters in domestic violence. it's a part of their job and the concern is there
6:23 am
resu resources to help the police. >> we have to ta a break. kewe look, i know you're a cow and all. and you may not know what i'm talking about, but, uh. the yogurt made from your milk, is delicious.
6:24 am
the president of mount st. mary's university has resigned after the firestorm when he compared freshmen students to bunnies that should be drowned. simon newman resigned close to six weeks after those comments. what do you make of this story? >> well, he obviously said something that he obviously regretted. you have to ask yourself what was he thinking when he said that. and of course the whole situation arose over a group of students who were complaining about their grades and things of that nature. and then the reports indicate that he wanted to have them taken care of, dismissed quickly so that it can't affect their ratings. so u.s. news and world report wouldn't look good. it just went down from there. the fact that he got rid of the faculty members
6:25 am
it which criticized him. it is a classic downward spiral situation. >> so is pr sort of -- >> disaster. >> a pr disaster. but do you think it illustrates the kind of pressure that these schools are under to compete for students and for dollars, federal dollars? >> sure. he was new coming in. i think he'd only been there a year. he didn't come from the field of academia. he was a financial industry expert. so he came into really pull mount st. mary's together. and he even said that we have to kind of get the lower end folks out aboutbecause it will help uh federal funding. but once he fired those two professors, he had the faculty then turn on him 87-3 i think they took a vote and said that he should resign being but he had the board of trustees behind him. but i think the faculty said we cannot move forward, we're not going to be able to recruit new faculty or new
6:26 am
as you're here. and once that becomes a problem and the accreditation says we'll look at it again and send anned a deny du aed a deny dumb to say we want you to renew your leadership, then they knew they had to make a move. >> metro is in the news this week. d.c., maryland and virginia have agreed to keep working on a plan to create an independent agency to oversee safety. local leaders are facing new pressure now over in. but will the agreement to move ahead and continue to work together help head off the loss of potentially millions of dollars in federal funding? >> the criticism here isn't oversight. they have several federal agencies looking over the thing. there has been a number of studies, a number of intensive press coverage. people complain there is not money. there is no viable funding plan. yes, they get a certain amount of money, i believe $150 million of matching funds. and they have never really been sure of the matching
6:27 am
on this. >> anthony fox says what i want is i want d.c., virginia and maryland to take over oversight and i want if done t done by th said of year and if it's not, then you would lose the $15 million that you would get from federal funding. maryland and virginia says we can't get it done by the end of the year because our general assemblies are leaving. d.c. says we can and fox says, well, you need to find a way to work that out because it has to be done by the end of the year. >> let's talk for a second about the pressure and protests to pull the plug on the pepco/exelon merger. city leaders protested last week at the wilson building. though d.c. public service commission rejected the original proposal, it is willing to consider a new deal, just not one with a three year rate freeze. and that's where mayor bowser is
6:28 am
bowing out. so can she -- why is this such a mess? >> well, i think what it gets down to is the mayor says,s will, i was against the deal and then i was for it because i was able to get $78 million in concessions from pepco/exelon and $26 million of take will e that go to a rate freeze and the commission said you may get it, but we don't want d.c. to have control of the dollars. we want to put that money in escrow and we want to decide how that money is put out there because they feel the strict may tap into that money and use it for something else. so it's really about dollars and cents. and if they can't get the mayor to sign off on this, it won't move board whether pepco or exelon are for it. >> but isn't the question whether this really is a good deal or bad deal for the rate payors? >> there are a lot of people who don't trust the deal. they don't trust pepco, they don't want this kind of a merger. they think that it will not be a
6:29 am
consumer friendly. there has been a boiling point with a lot of people and that is part of the reason for the decision. >> meanwhile, washington gas weren'ts a nearly 10% rate hike. if that's approved, gas bills would jump about $8 on average a month. so i guess it's pretty good that winter is almost over. >> we think, right so? is it really open? we hope it's over. but about they get that, they're saying they want that $17 million to invest back into t improvement which is will keep rate rates lower. >> there is a lot of septembsce that, too. >> thank you for watching report a reporter's notebook. "news 4 today" continues. it's 6:30 and here are t

hawaii. these are more moderate grounds and also primaries which cruz hasn't done the best in. >> and you could knock cruz and say he only does well in primaries in states that touch the state of texas. louisiana, arkansas, oklahoma. one win, close seconds in two of them. so let's see what happens in michigan. so good weekend. but let's see what happens tuesday. they could be big nights. of course michigan being an open primary where democrats and independents can also vote, in those circumstances, trump has usually been very strong. >> interesting to see if all of the posturing from the republicans mitt romney and whatnot is starting to pay dividends. >> i have romney on the show today. i'll be cure why us ious to see take as victory lap saying two days after i give that speech, lo and behold, donald trump takes on water. >> and let's talk about clinton. she has a huge delegate lead.
6:45 am
contests, he won two, kansas and nebraska. hillary clinton just won louisiana. but just won it by almost 50 points and she won the night in delegates. so she increases her delegate lead even though he wins two out of three states this is a path that is increasingly looking difficult for bernie sanders. >> and we know kevin spacey will be in the house. >> frank underwood. life imitating art imitating life. the more you watch "house of cards," the more you're like -- >> some of the stuff seems farfetched. >> and then all of a sudden you're like -- it's a request i' question i'll have for him, is he concerned that how was cards oig helps feed a negative narrative about washington and politicians. it's one of my concerns about this terrific golden age of political dramas that we're living in, it does all paint
