not be on their side. delores kelley: although we were all one maryland, our schools weren't treated the same way. narrator: with neighborhoods getting unequal funding for schools, something had to be done for our children. kelley: it didn't matter where chris was from. he knew that we couldn't leave a child having less just because they lived in a region that was poor. joanne benson: he has not just talked about it. he is going to stand tall for all children to succeed. i'm chris van hollen, and i approved this message.

a perfect spring day for a bike ride. capitol crescent trail, towpath, westerville and rail trail, a lot of great bike trails around. perfect day for a family bike ride. temperatures by moon should be in the low 60s and then near 70 by about 3:00. by late afternoon, back down into the mid-60s. don't forget your helmets. warmer weather on the way and some spring storms coming our way the week ahead. a look at that coming up. 10:15. maryland voters they to the polls for tuesday's primaries. four other states also have delegates up for grabs. >> joining us now, chuck todd. let's start with the republicans. donald trump going to win maryland? >> i think he might and i think he shouldn't. meaning like if they had run a campaign two months ago, a serious campaign, on paper i think if john kasich were alone and challenging trump, that it would be similar to what we saw when marco rubio almost beat trump basically in
northern virginia. i think you would see that here. the most exciting race in maryland is the democratic senate primary. the presidential side won't as exciting. >> the anti-trump movement, this is something that you talk about on the show. at this point is it picking up, losing steam? >> it seems to be losing steam. and is this a huge topic at the start of the show and it gets pretty contentious in a happy way. but everybody is in a good mood about the contention. but you look at we have a new pennsylvania poll that shows trump with a double digit lead, but if you add up cruz and kasich together, they will be over 50%. in indiana, trump has the lead, but if you add up cruz and kasich, they would be over 50%. so they know that case he can has t cake he kasich has the shot in maryland, but cruz refuses to get out and
indiana. so you would think even though it's in their best interests to work with them, they aren't. and out of the ashes rises the phoenix that is named donald trump. >> and you will talk to bernie sanders on the show today on the democratic seed ide of things. >> even he calls the path narrow. so very interesting, i came away from it not -- i did it yesterday pace to face. and i thought he seemed more conciliatory. and then you watch it in the after math and you are like wow, it was borderline exit interview. almost like he's acknowledging the reality of the situation willingly entertaining what is it can going to take for hillary clinton to win his supporters over. so he clearly is in that mode where he's a little bit torn. and he wants to keep fighting because he wants to build this movement and success sastain it. and he's also a real list. so very interesting. >> sounds like a bag of
>> and we do a little 9/11 saudi arabia stuff which is particularly here in washington i think people will find that conversation very interesting. >> i'm calling the affiliates. we're going longer today. >> that's right. >> thanks. >> and go caps. please. >> yes, i know. >> gosh sakes just let it go. >> we'll see. >> good luck flyer boy. a reminder you can see "meet the press" every sunday right here on nbc 4. well, this morning we are talking travel trends in the washington region. and while our population is growing, the roads aren't necessarily getting more congested. imagine that. and this morning we have a closer look at new reports that shows us why. >> reporter: optimism with some commuters. >> once you figure it out, it's pretty simple. >> reporter: and what a lot of people are figuring out around here are teleworking makes sense. >> work is becoming less of
someplace you go to, it's something do you wherever you are. >> reporter: take a look at that graphic and you can see as a whole we're driving more miles during the weekday than ever, but even as more and more people have moved into the region, the numbers haven't spiked dramatically. transportation experts say that is because we're also now embracing telework as a major option and it's having an impact. and take a look at this graphic, these are all the people who either drive, take metro or the bus or commuter rail who telework occasionally now, but look how many more of them could actually be tell are a commuting. it's now recommended that people who come from long distances take a serious look at telecommuting to improve everyone's commute. demetrius one of those telecommuting regularly now, he just doesn't enjoy the day to day commute. >> getting on metro, sometimes the bus might be 20 minutes late
>> reporter: though he says his best bet often just working from home, a positive spin on our normally dreadful commute. >> we'll take anything at this point. >> yes. so it if you want if name the baby eaglets, fintime is running out. >> vote runs until 11:59 tonight. they were both last month to the proud parents mr. president and the first lady. and you have a pew choic few ch. stars and stripe, freedom and liberty, anacostia and potomac, honor and glory and we like cherry and blossom. the names will be announced later this week. good luck. >> great to be part of the process. >> absolutely. >> you can do a write-it in. >> the arbor i
