strategy heading into the michigan primary but still lost in a stunning upset to sanders. help win ohio and illinois. >> the candidates sparred over immigration. >> you are telling us if you become president you won't deport children? >> i will not. >> i don't think the secretary fully answered the question. i think the proof may be in the pudding. >> reporter: while both candidates took sharp aim at donald trump they deflected a question about whether he is a racist. >> i think it is unamerican. i think what he has promoted is not at all in keeping with american values. >> i think that the american people are never going to elect a president who insults mexicans, who insults muslims. >> reporter: and clinton with a rare moment of candor when asked why so many voters say they don't trust her.
7:06 am
>> i'm not a natural politician. i have a view that i just have to do the best i can. >> reporter: senator sanders still has a very steep climb in order to win the nomination he would have to win more than 60% of the delegates moving forward but he has a lot of momentum and a lot of money in his war chest. >> that momentum could be key going into next tuesday in ohio and florida. >> reporter: the stakes couldn't be higher next tuesday. if secretary clinton has a strong showing and wins florida and illinois it solidifies her as a frontrunner and puts the race out of reach mathematically. that is something she and her team are eager to do. if senator sanders were to win in ohio or missouri this would make him a real contender and he is making a real play for these

7:09 am

7:33 am
several women but authorities say no one was arrested or charged. so what caused the brawl? this morning we received an explanation saying prior to landing two customers who appeared to be intoxicated were playing loud music on a boom box speaker. several other customers asked them to turn down the music. the first two ladies refused. they were holding it up in the air. this prompted the second group of customers to approach the first group and a fight broke out. i feel like i just did play by play in a boxing match. a boom box on a plane. >> were no charges filed because it happened once the plane was on the ground? >> that's the stunning part, no one was arrested or charged. if there is a physical altercation -- we got to the bottom that it was apparently a
7:34 am
boom box. >> that is crazy. we'll move on now to a shooting in florida making headlines across the country. a mother is recovering this morning after being accidently shot by her 4-year-old son. here is kerry sanders. >> reporter: the shooting story is exploding on social media but there is not a lot of sympathy for the gunshot victim. >> she had been shot by a handgun. >> reporter: a 31-year-old mother accidently shot in her truck. >> do we have a suspect? >> it's going to be a 3 year old. >> reporter: it turns out a 4 year old. investigators say the child who pulled the trigger and shot the woman in the back is the victim's son. >> the questions that remain how was it stored in the vehicle and how did this young boy come to be in possession of it. >> reporter: jamie gilt for gun sense is a facebook page.

7:42 am
with patti davis. >> good morning. patti told me she was moved by all the people who came out to honor her mother, nancy reagan. she said the support brings her great comfort. davis' relationship with both of her parents and in particularly with her mom was at times complicated. she says in recent years thankfully they were able to find great peace between them. >> i think she would be very honored and very happy that people paused in their lives to pay their respects to her and to honor her. it's really comforting to see all of these people who i'm sure not all republicans standing out on freeway overpasses. >> you came in walking by yourself.
7:43 am
where is your brother? >> he didn't come down today. i don't know why. it's sort of not my question to answer. he will be here friday and doing the eulogy. >> did you feel alone there walking with her? >> a little bit. a little bit. you know what? i feel very complete in my relationship with her. i feel very clear and clean in where our relationship came to particularly the last few years of her life. >> how did you get there? >> at some point and it really was the beginning of my father's illness i made a choice. i chose to aim for peace of mind and peace in and of itself with my mother. and all of our sort of strained history together, there is no
7:44 am
peace of mind in that at all. and i really made a decision to look at her and look at us through a different lens, through a more living, forgiving lens that doesn't mean that it was a smooth journey. it was not. there was still a lot of peaks and valleys in there and a lot of really deep valleys. >> anything left unsaid or did you get everything out? did she get everything out? >> i think so but not in a way that i think you are asking. i think my mother was not someone who would have been comfortable with an analytical conversation about let's talk about -- let's work through this. it's different generation. and i think that needs to be respected. i think the better route is to just behave differently. >> it's hard to learn how to behave in a public family on a
7:45 am
public stage. >> i get now why i behaved the way i did and why i acted out in the way i did and wrote things i wish i could remove from the face of the earth but i can't. i did have an incredibly public family. the feeling is one of being sort of invisible and excluded and marginalized in all of that. it was my attempt to go see and hear me. i did it completely the wrong way. >> there has been so much written about their relationship and this incredible love story and that everybody else really was outside the two of them. did you feel like that as children? >> it was as if a band of gypsies came and took me and ron away they would miss us but they would be fine. they would go on. it didn't mean they didn't love
7:46 am
us. it meant their lives wouldn't be destroyed if we weren't there. they were complete unto each other. and that can be a complicated thing for children. where i came to in my life and with her is to be really happy for her that she had this great love in her life. >> much is being said that your mother couldn't wait to be reunited with your father. >> she told me once that she was not afraid to die. she said i don't want it to hurt. i'm not afraid to die. i'll see ronnie again. they were my parents. so, yes, america has lost a former first lady. i lost my mother. and i am happy for her that she is with my father now. >> patti davis says all arrangements you will see at
7:47 am
