7:04 am
>> at this point, our campaign has beaten him not once, not twice but seven times. >> reporter: another brutal night for senator marco rubio finishing last in mississippi and michigan but still holding out hope for his home state of florida. >> buckle up your seat belts. this ride has got a few more twists and turns. >> reporter: now ohio governor john kasich who has yet to win a single contest vowing to stay in the race and that he will win his home state and donald trump for him, the race to the presidency starts right now right here in florida and says he will win florida which he calls his second home. george. >> thank you, tom. donald trump joining us now. thanks for joining us. big wins last night and new polls out show you ahead in both florida and ohio. are you ready to wrap this up? >> well, i'd like to. i would certainly love to do it. i have great relationships to those two states, ohio is very special to me for a lot of
7:05 am
my second home and i have a lot of people in florida that work for me. it was a great evening we had last night, george. >> it was the two big win, no question about it. but when you look at the national polls right now you have two-thirds of voters still have a negative opinion of you. almost half of republicans. how do you turn that around? >> well, i think the big thing is that they're seeing a lot of fights. they're seeing me fighting all the time. i started off as better than anybody and started off with 17 people in total. and i was being hit from every single side. every side, nobody's ever been hit like me other than this week where i was hit harder with these commercials. horrible and many false commercials but i was hit from a lot of different angles and had to fight back so they're seeing somebody that is a fighter which they respect but also seeing somebody that wasn't particularly a nice person, which i am. but i had a fight and i was being hit very hard and i fought and, you know, beat a lot of people. and i think they're seeing that
7:06 am
the other side because if you remember, there was a time where we were sort of healing and doing well and my positives were way through the roof and people were reporting on it but i was hit very hard by marco and i had to hit him back harder and i was hit hard by everybody. so actually, george, i think they'll see a very different person when this is all over with. >> one of the other canaries in the coal mine, exit polls out of michigan show veit decided in the last few days went overwhelmingly for john kasich, 43%, only 12% went for you. what does that say to you? >> well, it says to me that you're probably the only person that could make a negative out of a big win because i had a tremendous win yesterday. i had, you know, in michigan, in mississippi, i was almost at 50% and don't forget that's with four candidates. that's not with two people but four candidates and, you know, i see nothing negative about michigan. the michigan win was fantastic. it was a monster win.
7:07 am
a massive landslide. look where second is and kasich wasn't even in second place. he was in third place, a distant third and he said that if he doesn't win michigan he guaranteed michigan and he said if he doesn't win michigan, he's pretty much out and -- >> you'll beat him in ohio? >> we'll see what he does. i think i will, yeah. i mean, i have amazing relationships to ohio. incredible people, and they're like everyone else, they're losing a lot of jobs. they're losing a lot of jobs to other places. >> mr. trump, thanks for joining us this morning. >> okay, thank you very much. >> and we are joined now about john kasich, he's on the phone, as well. mr. kasich, thank you for joining us this morning. governor, you just heard donald trump right there. he beat you in michigan. says he'll beat you in ohio. >> well, he's not going to win in ohio, george, we're going to win in ohio and it's going to be a whole new ball game and we'll be moving all across the midwest, frankly, for the first time people are really starting to hear my message and this new
7:08 am
shows that of all the contests yet to go it's basically a three-way dead heat. it's very interesting. >> yeah, but both polls, ohio polls out this morning show donald trump is ahead right now. there have been 24 contests so far. you're 0 for 24. so what's your path to victory? >> well, george, look, you know, again, we're campaigning the plan that we laid out, and, you know, we did very well in michigan. i went from single digit to -- >> you were third place. >> to basically -- basically tied -- well, look, george, it was very close. cruz and i split the number of delegates and you just read the poll that 43% of the late deciders decided in my favor. so, you know, the fact of the matter is we had not been heard. now we're being heard and we are gaining and when i win ohio it's going to be a whole new ball game. we will be competing all across the midwest over at the -- over, you know, in the east and, of
7:09 am
know, we're still standing and outperformed how people thought we would do in michigan. most thought i would be single digit. >> even if you win in ohio you'll still be far behind in delegates. no path for you to get a majority before the convention, your only hope is a contested convention. why would a convention turn to you if you're in second or third place in delegates at best? >> well, george, let me, again, go back and to say that really for the first time, people are starting to hear what i have to say and the calendar has now moved to more home court advantage, and so as this thing is up north, you never know what's going to happen in a campaign or in an election. as you know, it changes every single day, but the message of the fact that i've been able to balance budgets, create an environment for job growth both in washington and ohio helping people to have more economic stability in their lives and given their kids a chance to live their dreams is a message
7:10 am
why -- look at the significant growth i've had in the period of about the last week or ten days. it's been pretty remarkable. you have to acknowledge that. it's gone from single digit into the 20s now ahead of marco rubio and not really that far behind donald trump. >> and we will be watching on tuesday. governor kasich, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thanks, george. now to those stunning results for the democrats overnight. bernie sanders with a big upset victory over hillary clinton in michigan. all eyes turning to ohio now where some of the next crucial votes will be cast. abc's david wright is in cleveland and joins us from there this morning. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. stunning is the word for it. just as hillary clinton had been hoping to focus on the general election, michigan voters have said, not so fast, and now as the race turns here to ohio and elsewhere suddenly it's a jump ball. this morning, michigan voters have thrown bernie sanders a lifeline.
7:11 am
are talking about is strong in every part of the country and, frankly, we believe that our strongest areas are yet to happen. >> reporter: here in cleveland, hillary clinton had planned for a victory party. instead, it's groundhog day. six more weeks of campaigning. >> this will be a busy week here in ohio. >> reporter: hours before the michigan polls closed, sanders himself didn't predict this. do you expect to win michigan? >> i will tell you that in about five or six hours. >> reporter: the polls tuesday were still showing clinton ahead by double digits. >> later -- >> i want to thank the people of michigan who repudiated the polls. >> reporter: the clinton campaign is now questioning whether attacking sanders on the auto industry bailout may have backfired. >> i voted to save the auto industry. he voted against the money that ended up saving the auto industry.
7:12 am
true, but sanders supported the auto bailout. he only voted against the funding because the money was lumped in with the bailout of wall street banks. >> it's important to have trust with the american people and if you say something that is not accurate, that long term will hurt you. >> reporter: you're saying she lied about your record. >> i'm saying she distorted my record. >> reporter: the electorate here in ohio looks an awful like michigan so expect this state to be a battleground. meanwhile, tonight, the two democrats meet in miami for their second debate this week. a lot of voters will be tuning in with new interest. robin. >> that they will, david. thank you. we bring in abc's jon karl with more on last night's results and the crucial votes ahead next tuesday. jon, let's start with the republicans factoring in yesterday's results where does the race stand right now. >> reporter: donald trump picked up more delegates and he is now one-third of the way to the 1,237 he needs to win.
7:13 am
outside of donald trump's big wins is that marco rubio right now has not picked up a single delegate. he may get a couple when they finish counting in hawaii but comes up completely empty-handed. tuesday, the big day, call it super duper tuesday if you will. florida, 99 delegates, the winner of florida takes all 99 delegates, winner take all, ohio, same story. winner take all. all 66 delegates. if donald trump can win ohio and florida, this race on the republican side is virtually over. >> and how about on the democratic side, jon? >> reporter: you mentioned a huge night for bernie sanders. he wins in michigan, a big upset but overall he comes away with fewer delegates last night than hillary clinton because of her big win in mississippi, overall she is more than halfway to the delegates that she needs to win. so going forward, they've got their big mini super tuesday coming up next week. bernie sanders now, robin would need to win virtually every
7:14 am
average of 11 points to catch up with hillary clinton. >> so, there's a mini super and a super duper tuesday. >> super duper on the republican side. >> got it, jon, thanks so much. amy with the other top stories. a killer on the loose in kansas. >> there is a manhunt for a mexican national accused of killing five people in kansas and missouri and that manhunt we can report is finally over. police say pablo serrano was carrying a rifle found in a ditch not far from a murder scene killing four men at his neighbor's house. he was deported 12 years ago but ended up back in the country illegally and was released last year because of a paperwork error. well, the former marine accused of shooting a pastor outside a church in idaho last week after a ted cruz rally has been arrested at the white house. the secret service says kyle odom was throwing computer flash drives and other items over the
7:15 am
list of senators and congressmen with him. he say odom has a history of mental illness. a u.s. defense official says a top isis killer was likely killed in a u.s. air strike. the pentagon still working to confirm the fate of omar al shoshani serving as the minister of war for isis. a west point graduate was killed in israel. taylor force was attacked by a palestinian who ran down the street, stabbing people in their cars before eventually being shot by police. the violence coincides with vice president joe biden's meeting today with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. biden promised the u.s. will act if iran violates terms of the recent nuclear deal. just today iran said it test-fired missiles with the phrase israel must be wiped out written on them. well, finally live tv can be risky. sometimes it can be downright dangerous, take a look at this.
7:16 am
situation. >> very, very close call during a live shot in san francisco. incredibly, no one was hurt in the crash. alex savidge credits his photog chip for yelling get out of the way and credits that split-second decision to go right instead of left and it really was a close call. the show must go on, though. he went back on. his next live shot he was a little taken. wanted to tell his wife he's okay and he's in the studio today. >> he's fast. >> yeah. >> thank you, amy. another big headline this morning. >> another big headline this morning. so many celebrating the life of the fifth beatle sir george martin. the super producer credited with giving the beatles their first big break. paul mccartney, ringo starr and others celebrating his memory i get by with a little help

7:31 am
>> i thought we were going to play total eclipse of the heart. >> hint, hint, control room. we'll begin with hulk hogan back on the stand getting grilled in his $100 million lawsuit against the website gawker. the former pro wrestler highlighting the difference between his professional character and his real self. abc's linzie janis is in st. petersburg, florida, with more. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that's right, the defense suggesting it's almost impossible to tell when he is his bombastic wrestling character hulk hogan and when he's terry bollea, the private man behind the character. lawyers for gawker cross-examining terry bollea, aka hulk hogan on the witness stand for a second day. arguing that just days after the gossip site posted a tape of him having sex with his then best friend's wife, the hullster willingly discussed the stories in a series of talk show interviews. >> you come off like a stud.
7:32 am
are you kidding me? do you think you come off bad in that tape? >> reporter: the defense suggesting if he was emotionally distressed by the release of the tape, why talk about it on howard stern? >> you didn't say, whoa, whoa, i don't want to discuss this. >> i just -- i dropped my head in my hands, it was embarrassing, humiliating to hear but i didn't say it. >> things could have been to a whole other level and i was trying to be cool, you know. >> what do you mean? i'm not getting this. >> reporter: the most famous pro wrestler in the world explaining he was in character giving him artistic license. >> did you tell howard stern you would prefer that he respect your privacy? >> no, sir, i didn't want to bring terry bollea, the man and separate the man from the character. >> reporter: hogan testifying he didn't want to discuss the tape but the interviews were part of a promotional tour for his
7:33 am
booked long before the sex tape went viral. the defense also arguing hogan had long invited the public into his private life. showing a clip of his former reality show "hogan knows best" in which he and his ex-wife linda get marriage counseling. >> between her and i, there is just all this unhappiness. >> did you consider that appropriate for the public to see? >> yes, sir, we were -- it's like the clip you showed where it's "hogan knows best," i wasn't terry bollea knows best. this was one of those story lines. >> reporter: hogan's lawyers telling us they never had a problem with gawker writing about the sex tape. it was posting it that went too far and, ra'anan,on robin, they say he's almost always hulk hogan unless he's at home or in a private bedroom being secretly recorded.
7:34 am
you heard his argument that he was staying in character. what do you think about that. >> it's a tough argument to me because basically saying he's always hulk hogan except when he's behind closed doors and, therefore, you shouldn't hold against him anything that he said as hulk hogan. it's a critical point in the case because gawker's argument is because he talked about his sex life, therefore, this sex tape became relevant and newsworthy. he's saying i didn't talk about the sex tape. hulk hogan talked about the sex tape. it's a tough distinction to make and i think one that's going to be hard for the jury to accept. >> yeah. >> particularly on the issue of damages. >> how does it relate to damages. >> because, think about it, let's assume there's liability, that the jury says we think that gawker's responsible. how much pain and suffering, economic damage, et cetera, did terry bollea suffer, because of what hulk hogan did? it starts to make you wonder whether terry bollea should sue
7:35 am
i mean, it's a sort of -- it's this surreal world sign i had the courtroom now but i'll tell you, i think the most important testimony is going to come from the defendants themselves, from the gawker folks, because whether they believe hulk hogan, terry bollea, this case is going to come down to why gawker did what it did. >> have you ever heard of this type of defense ? >> no, actors are comparing it to being an actor but talking about real things in his real life. not just about acting roles. >> there's a difference. dan, i'm sure we'll talk to you from time to time about it. >> a strange one. we turn to a murder-for-hire plot out of indiana where a former marine who became a star baker is under arrest for trying to have her ex killed. she was stopped by a police sting and abc's gio benitez is here with the story. >> reporter: good morning to you and you won't believe who turned her in. her new boyfriend and what came next, an undercover sting fit for hollywood. she's a baker, gracing the cover of "southern indiana living" magazine and a marine serving
7:36 am
29-year-old laura buckingham is something of a local celebrity near knoxville. an american hero. but this morning, this marine turned baker is behind bars, accused of a murder-for-hire plot against her ex-boyfriend. >> i thought it was a joke. in all honesty we all thought we were being punked for a short period of time. >> reporter: bradley sutherland, the father of their 3-year-old son speaking out after police say buckingham recruited her new boyfriend, a marine sniper to help kill him. >> why? that's the only question i have. the only thing i want to know. why. >> reporter: buckingham wanted to end a contentious custody battle with sutherland, police say. that she was frustrated about having to drive their 3-year-old son to his house every week. the new boyfriend, ex-sniper joseph chamblin told police about the alleged plot.
7:37 am
undercover sting where buckingham allegedly paid a $300 deposit for the murder. the total cost, just 3,000 bucks. buckingham has pleaded not guilty. >> i don't feel angry. i feel sad she felt the way she did to try to take my son from me. >> reporter: and in court, buckingham seen reportedly revealing she is also now pregnant and being held on $150,000 bond. she'll face a judge again in may. again, she says not guilty but police say they have loads of evidence on her. >> wow. >> we'll see what happens. thank you. coming up that big lawsuit over concussions that could change the game for young kids playing football. later, "ghostbusters" star melissa mccarthy is taking on body image. a powerful image for her daughters this morning. leonardo da vinci. thomas edison. alexander bell graham.

8:11 am
>> good morning, robin. you know women are care givers. let's face it. always caring for our of loved ones demanding health care for aging parents or our kids or forcing a spouse to go to the doctor but the one person's health we often neglect. our own but the woman you're about to meet is living proof that selflessness can be dangerous. as a hard-charging prosecutor sue palmer has seen her share of tragedy but nothing could have prepared her for the near tragedy that almost took her life. >> i just kind of felt funny and i laid there for a minute and thought, well, that's weird and after about a minute, i through that i was going to be sick. >> reporter: assuming it was a 24 hief 24-hour virus she wanted to crawl back into bed but her husband tim also an attorney objected. >> i thought, you know, this could be more and looked at the, you know, grabbed out my tablet and looked at it and googled heart attack symptoms in women.
8:12 am
time was a healthy nonsmoker not feeling any telltale signs of a cardiac event. >> he said, let's go to the er. i said why. >> reporter: tim wasn't ready to take a chance and whisked her to the er and an ekg revealed a shock. even though she didn't fit the profile and only had flu-like symptoms she was having a massive heart attack. >> women are more likely than men to have what we call atypical symptoms of heart disease. she felt like she had the flu. she felt bad. she just knew something wasn't right. >> reporter: later tests showed that 100% of her corps row nary artery was blocked by a clot and another was 70% clogged. that blockage sometimes called the widowmaker frequently results in sudden death. in less than 15 minutes, freddie and his team stopped the heart attack by suctioning out blood clots and inserts ss spent ss stents.
8:13 am
make the decision. >> reporter: raetful to them for saving her life she has a message to others. >> don't trust your instinct. if your instinct is to go back to bed i have since heard many stories of women who did exactly what i wanted to do and never woke up. >> reporter: here's the thing. one of the most haunting things sue told us if i go to the er they'll think i'm crazy blue a lot of women have none of the classic simms until it's too late. many in the middle of a heart attack don't feel right. don't ignore your intuition. the worst thing he say, you're fine. you can live with that. >> something we as women don't think about it. always think, oh, men are the ones that get the heart attacks. i would be like, heartburn. >> also worried what other people will think. they'll think we're crazy? she wasn't obese, had done all the right things. >> you would never think that's a heart attack. >> exactly. >> well, we need to, though. that's the point here. we have to be diligent. >> absolutely wake-up call.
8:14 am
>> glad she's doing all right. joining us chief health and medical editor dr. richard besser. so glad we're talking about this. a lot get the stomach flu. how do you know it's more? >> i can see millions of people with the stomach flu thinking i'm just going to go to the emergency room and get it checked out. that's not the message. if you have typical stomach flu symptoms and everyone around you have stomach flu you can feel comfortable you have stomach flu but if it feels different than the normal stomach flu and no one else has it and something didn't feel right you don't want to ignore that? as we heard in juju's report follow your intuition about it. the classic signs of clutching your chest but it's different for men and women the symptoms. >> those classic symptoms are much more common in men. let me break it down for you. so, the crushing chest pain that radiates down your arm, the palpitations, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath and sweating more common in men than women. the unusual simms are more
8:15 am
unusual fatigue, indigestion, trouble sleeping or pain in your neck, back or jaw can indicate a heart attack and it's the number one killer of men and women. a woman is so much more likely to die from heart disease than breast cancer but surveys half the women get it backwards and think they're much more at risk for breast cancer and have to do more to educate people. >> if you have some of these symptoms what should you do? >> women are much, much slower to get to the hospital. much slower to call the er and much slower when they get to the hospital to get the right tests and to have those procedures done. so, what you want to do, listen to your body. if it doesn't feel right, call 911. sit down, chew an aspirin because that will help your survival from this and when you get to the emergency room don't diminish your symptoms and say, i think i may be having a heart attack because time matters. >> saying that and -- >> the others on the other end they'll make those mistakes too and send tend to make the same
8:16 am
crushing pain. >> thank you for saying that. we've heard from many women who say the doctor could be dismissive and say you're a woman and not having the heart attack. >> there's a lot of studies that show doctors do not treat men and women the same when they come in with symptoms of heart disease. it is on both sides. things women can do and doctors need to do better as well. >> i know you'll have a lot of questions. you'll be on twitter. >> all monk. >> thanks so much. amy. all right, robin. thank you. we turn now to superstar melissa mccarthy. she is on the cover of next month's "redbook" magazine and the "ghostbusters" star is rewriting the rules about beauty sending an important message to her kids and to everyone about how to be happy and confident. abc's reena ninan has her story. >> look at that. a bed and sofa. >> reporter: one of the hottest queens of comedy. >> not so bad. >> reporter: with two major blockbusters set for release
8:17 am
>> get out of my fridge. >> that's going to leave a mark. >> reporter: now melissa mccarthy, actress and fashion mogul is rewriting the rule book on beauty. in the april issue of "redbook" the comedienne breaking down the norms of body image telling the magazine "with women there's this constant weird cultural thing where we're always supposed to be comparing ourselves with one another, who wore it best? whose butt's better? instead how about if everyone wins?" the issue dropping the term plus size. >> we told her we were taking the label plus off of clothing in our issue, her response was, oh, my god. that's amazing. let's let readers know it comes in their size, but why label them? >> reporter: mccarthy who recently launched her line of clothing touts the importance of feeling confident and stylish. telling "redbook" "i just try to make clothing that will make all women feel really good. when i feel good about my clothes i look at the world a
8:18 am
a little bit of joy goes a long way." >> we can provide a real service. god, that's hot. >> reporter: the 45-year-old movie star eager to teach her kids the importance of loving yourself. >> she is an adoring mom of two little girls. and one of the things that she tries to do is always take a compliment and say, thank you. i love it too. >> reporter: for "good morning america," reena ninan, abc news, new york. >> i love all of those lessons. >> especially that last one. >> the april issue of "redbook" is out now. >> all right. let's move on to supersaving secrets. we have t.j. back here right now. another story involving planes. this one, new york couple gets a private plane ride for free. >> how did that happen? >> all legit on the open, up and up. it's legal. we talk about a middle class couple, private jet, all to themselves for absolutely free. so how did they do it? you guessed it. there is an app for that.
