this was the most civil debate they had had in a while. but trump found himself on the opposite side from the other three candidates on a number of issues. and because it was so so civil, it was issue oriented. they talked about social security, too, but taxing chi nargs muslims and a solution for israel. donald trump in many cases on one side and the other three candidates on the other side. so in this case sort of alienating him when it came to the issues of the campaign. so we know the situation in florida. 99 delegates at stake. and we have donald trump leading in the polls right now. meantime let's talk quickly about the democrats. because today is going to be a very busy kay for bernie sanders. he's in north carolina, illinois and ohio all those states also voting on tuesday. ohio is where hillary clinton is hoping to make her midwest comeback after the big loss in michigan. back to you. >> tracie potts on the hill for us. thank you. we already are hearing talk
