a little child with big dreams. dwight evans. first a community activist. a legislator at 25. always looking out for us. he worked to create a thriving commercial district. and he's brought new grocery stores to underserved areas. dwight evans is committed to revitalizing neighborhoods in all of philadelphia. he'll be a block by block congressman for us. i'm dwight evans and i'm proud to approve this message. narrator: listen to katie mcginty for obama vo: katie will stand up to special interests to protect your right to health care, social security and equal pay for women. as the 9th of 10 kids and the mother of 3 daughters, katie is fighting to ensure every family has a fair shot
11:30 am
at getting ahead. katie from debate: "i'm a champion, i'm a fighter and i'll have the back of hard working families in this country." narrator: endorsed by president obama and vice president biden, a champion for working families. katie vo: i'm katie mcginty and i approve this message. this is "nbc 10 news." the final push of decision 2016 and news of an unlikely alliance forming. voters in pennsylvania and delaware will join connecticut, maryland and rhode island to cast their votes tomorrow. and we have live team coverage of this final full day of campaigning before the primaries. "nbc 10's" pamela osborne is live for us in wilmington. we begin with "nbc 10's" lauren maik who is live for us. >> reporter: this is a pretty stunning development that you just mentioned, the kasich and cruz campaign sort of working together.
11:31 am
the idea is that cruz would concentrate on indiana, kasich would concentrate on oregon and new mexico and they would stop donald trump from getting the nomination. now kasich was just here at the penn rose diner just about 20 or so minutes ago. we were here as he went in to shake hands with people, take some pictures and do some final campaigning here in pennsylvania before this primary tomorrow. now inside there were supporters of his. there were also volunteers who have come here from all over the country to help him with his campaign. i talked to some of them about what they think about this new arrangement. they told me they like it because they do want an open convention where governor kasich would have a possibility of getting the nomination. here is what john kasich had to say about it himself. >> i'm not going to go tell anybody how to vote. they can -- look, i mean, this is a matter of resources and, you know, we are running a national campaign and we want to
11:32 am
apply our resources where we think they can be used most effectively. it's all designed to stop hillary clinton from becoming president. >> reporter: interesting there that he talked about stopping hillary clinton from becoming president as opposed to just stopping donald trump from getting the nomination because he has said over and over again that he does not believe that donald trump can beat hillary clinton in november and that he is the one who can do that. you also heard him talking about asking people who they are going to vote for. the idea is who should people in indiana vote for? is he actually going to tell them to vote for ted cruz? he said, no, that's not the case. they're not going that far. it is more an issue of resources instead of taking those resources out of indiana, putting them somewhere else and for him campaign hopefully getting to that open convention in cleveland. now live in south philadelphia, i'm lauren mayk, nbc news. >> they say politics makes strange bedfellows. senator cruz 4e8d a campaign
11:33 am
rally in indiana this morning. the senators spoke to supporters at a winery in the southeastern part of that state. indiana's one of the states where cruz is focusing his attention. governor kasich has shifted resources away from indiana to clear the path for cruz. the senator spoke about that, the agreement, just a short time ago. take a listen. after discussions with the kasich campaign, we made a decision about allocating resources. we decided to allocate our time and energy and resources on the state of indiana. governor kasich decided to allocate his resources elsewhere. i think that made sense from both campaigns. >> cruz's rival, donald trump, will be in our area this afternoon. he's holding a campaign rally at westchester university a little later. on the democratic side, both candidates will be in our area today as well. "nbc 10's" pamela osborne is live in wilmington new castle county where former secretary of state hillary clinton is holding a campaign event. pamela, you told us earlier
11:34 am
there's quite a crowd there. >> reporter: absolutely, vai. this crowd stretched o almost the entire length of this street here. people waiting for the opportunity to hear hillary speak. i want to take you inside that rally as it's happening as a moment former delaware gov, tom harper is speaking to the crowd there. a lot of support for hillary here. i have to tell you the crowd is incredibly diverse. there are people of all ages from all backgrounds really just looking to hear from hillary herself before they head to the polls tomorrow. she is expected to speak to that crowd. when she does she's talking gun violence, raising the income for families. people we've talked to say their minds pretty much are made up. >> yeah, i'm 100%. i'm 19 so it's my first time voting. i'm excited to be able to vote for possibly the first woman president. >> our plan to put america past
11:35 am
renewable energy in the past ten years is something that speaks to me as a vote injur. >> when you have a chance to make history and have such a qualified person for whom you can work your heart out, there's just nothing better than that. >> reporter: people say they were looking forward to getting a place inside of there. again, to hear hillary speak before they head to the polls tomorrow. also worth mentioning, it was so packed in there that some people even tried to get in but it was too late. certainly a lot of people i can at thatting advantage of this one-on-one time with the democratic front-runner here in wilmington. reporting live, i'm pamela osborne, "nbc 10 news." >> pamela, thank you. clinton's rival, meanwhile, senator bernie sanders held a rally this morning in connecticut. he told a crowd in hartford that he would address income inequality. tonight the democratic candidates for president will be in philadelphia to speak to voters on the eve of the pennsylvania primary. msnbc will host back-to-back
11:36 am
town halls with hillary clinton and bernie sanders. the candidates will take question from voters at the national constitution center. host chris hays will moderate the bernie sanders town hall and rachel maddow will handle the clinton town hall at 9:00. now your "nbc 10" first alert weather. >> great way to start the work week. nice and warm out there. very sunny. live look right now at boathouse row in philadelphia. and the sun was peeking between the skyscrapers in center city earlier this morning. if you're heading out today, you're going to need to take some shades with you. nice to have them. how long will the sunny weather last though? "nbc 10" first alert chief meteorologist glenn hurricane schwartz is here with that answer. hey, glenn. >> hi, vai. we're going to be seeing some of the high clouds starting to come in now, they're thin but they're going to thicken up later today and tomorrow is going to be a pretty cloudy day. the temperature is rising into the mid 60s just about
11:37 am
everywhere across the region. one exception, right towards the jersey shore with the wind coming in off that cooler ocean. only 56 degrees in atlantic city, 59 at summers point while it's already into the upper 60s to near 70 degrees in inland areas. we're going to see that kind of temperature contrast for the rest of the day. just some high thin clouds coming across now. no impending rain but of course we are going to be seeing some of those changes later on. you can see a mix of sun and clouds, mainly those high clouds coming across this afternoon. even a place like reading and bethlehem up into the mid 70s. so it's going to be warmer than it was yesterday everywhere across the area except perhaps right at the beaches. but even there it's going to warm up tomorrow. we'll see how warm it's going to get. the timing on that rain that's coming for at least a part of election day in just a few
