those shots at rubio in the saturday debate that brought a lot of attention to him. a stunning turn of developments when they saw results last night and what our kelly o'donnell is reporting, news had been coming out all day, he would suspend his campaign. but she was reporting he wanted to bring the entire campaign together, 50 people in new jersey, talk to them, explain why, explain how much he appreciated them before the news got out and that's how it went down. >> lester, with donald trump and bernie sanders winning convinci convincingly, does this legitimize their campaigns? >> well, i think clearly it's a -- goes without saying these legitimate campaigns, these were landslides both the republican and democratic side. they are the people to beat. you can look in the democratic side and see hillary clinton still has a national lead. still has more strength in south carolina. but bernie sanders is coming out of new hampshire with a full
head of steam. you saw he met with reverend sharpton here at a restaurant this morning in harlem. so he understands that this is a different demographic makeup in south carolina. there's a large black population, some issues there that may not have been forefront in new hampshire. so he clearly is making his adjustments. we've heard that hillary clinton on her side is making adjustments in terms of strategy. donald trump right now, he's the man to beat. the crowded feel behind him, are they going after him or go after each other to clear space? that remains to be seen. >> lester holt, thank you. stick around for full coverage of the campaign trail for nbc "nightly news," coming up at 6:30. blareaking news, montgomery county, something is making students sick at ursinus college. that number stands at 100. >> deanna durante following the breaking developments at ursinus
