6:00 am
let's check the drive times. it was showing about 25 minutes to get across the howard frankland, still showing that, 25 minutes so if you can get to the courtney campbell causeway or the gandy bridge those are better options for you because no word yet on how long this crash is going to be there. we know a tow truck is on scene, hopefully they will open up another lane shortly. yesterday all the fog closed the sunshine skyway causing a lot of traffic problems. it's open, this is what it looks like at the bottom of the out there. use caution, make sure you use the low beams as you drive around. we're also seeing fog on i-4 through lakeland and in sarasota. so ivan, we were dealing with fog yesterday and again today. >> let's hope that bridge stays open, with the howard >> that's the alternate. >> it's going to be making a lot of people late to work. the fog continues as janelle mentioned, low 70s, the wind off the water has been the issue with the sea fog.
6:01 am
along the water and that is why it takes longer to lift. inland sanctions, still patchy dense fog as well but you'll be in much better shape after we get sun, beginning to lift the you. marine dense fog advisory continues through 11:00 a.m. so keep it in mind. it's going to be an issue for our bays and if you're headed out 20 nautical miles, really don't do it until we reach midday, visibility under a mile along the coast there. temperatures in the 70s and then by the afternoon back in the low 80s with, well, feeling warmer with the humidity climbing up as well. we'll have rain in the forecast as well, and a big cooldown, stay tuned. we begin with breaking news from the campaign trail with two races way too close to call at this hour. missouri is still counting the votes on both sides but right now the race is are virtually tied between donald trump and ted cruz on the republican side and hillary clinton and bernie sanders on the democratic side. still though tuesday's primary
6:02 am
clinton with clinton winning in every other state and trump of course cruising to a big win in florida. >> that victory proved to be the fatal blow for marco rubio's struggling campaign. look at the final results, trump's win in florida was dominant, captured 46% of the vote. even though this is rubio's home state he was not close, nearly 20 points behind trump. abc action news reporter ashley yore joins us with a look at what is next for rubio and how dominant trump's victory was. >> reporter: if you look at the key here, red means donald trump and look how much red is on this map. it's no surprise that marco rubio lost here in his home state but when you really take in this map you can tell just by how much. here in hillsborough county you can see that the total number of votes that trump got, yeah, 51,000, almost 52,000, that is numbers here. the only county that rubio did
6:03 am
that is where he made his concession speech last night. where a very supportive crowd booed and cheered along with him. >> we are are the descendants of immigrants and exiles who knew and believed that they were destined for more. and that there was only one place on earth where that was possible. this is who we are and let us fight to ensure this is who we remain. for if we lose that about our country, we'll still be rich and we'll still be powerful, but we will no longer be special. >> rubio had positioned himself as the only candidate who could stop trump. he had a few jabs we can't forget like calling trump's hands small and rubio did grab the endorsement of the south carolina governor nikki haley but clearly it just wasn't enough yesterday. people now asking what is next for rubio, many already looking at him as a candidate for florida's governor in 2018 or possibly even heading back to the private sector.
6:04 am
you rubio could still have a big impact with the gop convention. with trump's near sweep in the tuesday's primaries he's now the only republican candidate who could possibly earn the number of delegates needed to secure the republican nomination without going to a brokered convention. abc action news reporter carson chambers is challenge with the trump campaign and joins us from palm beach. >> reporter: we're inside donald trump's private club in palm beach. hundreds of supporters gathering here tonight to hear him speak after a big victory in florida. and for a victory speech it was pretty toned down. he actually congratulated marco rubio for what he called a great campaign in florida. and then rallying his supporters telling them that the u.s. is going to knock the hell out of isis. >> we're going to start winning again. this country is going to start winning again. [ cheering and applause ] -- we don't win anymore. >> reporter: trump also
6:05 am
putting him on top but calling out the media, calling some disgusting. in palm beach, carson chambers, abc action news. continuing our democracy 2016 coverage -- the one person who knocked the wind out of trump's sales was ohio governor john kasich who rolled to a win in his home state. his first win of the primary season. kasich's victory in the all or nothing state means he deprived trump of 66 delegates and says he's confident he can still go all the way. >> we are going to go all the way to cleveland and secure the republican nomination! [ cheering and applause ] -- we've got one more trip around ohio, this coming fall where we will beat hillary clinton and i will become the president of the united states! >> kasich is now stopping in his quest for the white house, back on the campaign trail today in philly. pennsylvania holds its primary next month.
6:06 am
hillary clinton is waking up in south florida a huge winner securing four key victories including florida. this lays down the groundwork for what we expect to be election. she easily beat bernie sanders in florida and the same true in the three other primary races called last night. after her victories she switched focus from sanders to trump saying a president's job is to bring people together. >> when we hear a candidate for president calling about callingem all immigrants,p banning muslims from entering the united states, when he embraces torture that doesn't wrong! [ cheering and applause ] >> bernie sanders also took shots at trump last night in an hourlong speech full of his usual campaign points.
6:07 am

6:16 am
campbell and the gandy bridge. opening up our cameras, we're still dealing with some fog. this is what it looks like on i- 4 around the polk parkway so if you're in lakeland, getting on the interstate heading to tampa expect fog on the entire drive. also seeing fog south of tampa, you can see it on the map, the area in yellow from sarasota all the way down through venice and part charlotte. if you're driving along u.s. 41 or i-75, again you may want to use the low beams, use caution and leave extra time. so ierve, another morning with some patchy fog. yes, thankfully the skyway remains open at this hour. we're in better shape than yesterday. this is the pinellas side of it. we'll continue to be able to see, and that is good news. as janelle mentioned there are pockets of denser fog. two concerns would be done across the south where the sea fog will continue over the next several hours and into the midday hour. then we have inland sections that are dealing with a little
6:17 am
so keep it in mind. although across the interior, the fog is going to lift sooner than along the coast. for that reason we have the 11:00 a.m. for coastal waters headed out 20 nautical miles. boating today. the later the better as we the morning. quiet on the southeast satellite and radar. high pressure in charge now but eventually a front will sag in. influence here and that will have a couple of showers in the 20% coverage. that would be about it, but not until friday and into the weekend, the front is not going not yet. it will stall out and then we're going to see the beginning of the disturbance along the front. what that will do is enhance rain chances so by saturday we're up to 50% coverage and into the early part of sunday, what happens in the 7-day happen. temperatures today quite the range, 70s along the coast as we had yesterday.
6:18 am
beach cam socked in with thely clouds through midday. then the spearier, with more heating temperatures climb in the mid to upper 80s. feeling like 90 because of the humidity. morning fog again tomorrow, 20% chance of showers especially north and 30% coverage friday as the front begins to really approach us and get us into the wetter pattern so. 50% coverage saturday, showers and thunderstorms. in fact some of the thunderstorms could be on the stronger side. we'll watch for that. i'm optimistic about sunday. i think the 30% rain coverage will be through the early part of the day. and we'll salvage at least half the weekend especially with the longer daylight. look what happens monday and tuesday, sunshine does come back for the overnight temperatures crashing into the 50s, even 40s across the north. 6:18. new this morning, a bar fight ends with one man dead, another deadly blow. >> we just got bobby ryan's mug shot in. authorities say last month he got into a fight with

6:25 am
manatee and sarasota. janelle and ivan are teeming up to make sure you get to where you need to go on time. you may remember this dramatic confession from a university of virginia student who is detained in north korea for stealing a political sign. new this morning north korea just sentenced him to 15 years in prison with hard labor. last month the american admitted to taking a propaganda been aer from a hotel where he was staying. banner. north korea calls this a crime against the state. new developments now in the zika virus, there's the first case of the mosquito-borne illness just reported in cuba. >> even more troubling for the island nation the 21-year-old patient hasn't traveled outside the country. this comes as a new study ties zika even more to a dangerous birth defect. researchers studied a zika outbreak in french pollnesia

6:29 am
6:30 am
results are still coming in overnight after a pivotal day of voting that already changed the makeup in the race for the white house. we'll run down the big winners and the one race still up in the air, plus this morning we're going to talk about the role ahead for marco rubio now that he's announced he's suspending his campaign. first, fog is again a problem this morning. how bad is it? >> it's pretty bad out there. you can see it on i-4, ivan? >> not as bad as yesterday where we had the skyway closed. it's currently open, just use extreme caution because at the top still pretty foggy and visibility will continue to be reduced along the coast. look at sarasota, about a mile and a quarter. a little worse earlier. look at venice, 3/4 mile. the shot you saw there was on i-
6:31 am
in fact if you make are making the drive from lickland and heading in visibility will continue to improve as you head further west but western polk county still socked in with heavy fog along with eastern pasco county. inland sections will lift the fog sooner, sunshine about an hour away and then we'll begin to warm things up. it will lift earlier but along our coast, still looking at the fog through the 11:00 hour, that is when our advisory for marine dense fog expires. 60s and 70s now, muggy, you can feel it, it will continue that way through the day. hour by hour forecast takes use in the 70s. keep in mind, add a few degrees to all of these because that is the heat index, how it feels when it's this muggy outside. no rain today, staying dry and warm but that is going to change in a big way. in fact we're going backward as far as the seasons. stay tuned for that in the 7- day forecast in a few minutes. but, like i said could be worse. the skyway is open and now the howard frankland as well.
6:32 am
skyway closely, remember it was closed yesterday but you were talking about that patchy fog. look how clear it is on the howard frankland. no fog here and a crash that we were telling but all morning that was blocking some northbound lanes that is clear as well. so you are back up to speed on the howard frankland in both directions. however, we're dealing with fog as ivan mentioned from lakeland to tampa. this is plant city. make sure to use the low beams if you do run into any fog. we're also seeing fog south of tampa from sarasota all the way to port charlotte. yellow. if you're driving along the i- 75 corridor or up the tamiami trail u.s. 41 you want to use caution, maybe even want to leave the house a little early if you're driving in those areas. just in case you do hit some dense fog. we'll watch it, so keep tuned to here and follow me on twitter @tampabaytraffic. still monitoring overnight
6:33 am
the race in missouri is still too close to call. the votes are still being counted at this hour. right now just 2/10 of a point separates donald trump from ted bernie sanders. still clinton was the big winner on the democratic side claiming victory in every other state including florida. as for donald trump he lost ohio but won every where else forcing marco rubio to suspend his campaign after losing his home state. ashley yore with more. >> reporter: trump clipped a video of marco rubio, was saying "i believe with all my heart that the winner of the florida primary next tuesday will be the nominee of the republican party." he said that last week. then trump wrote "thank you, marco, i agree." that was posted at 8:16 last night acts clear jab at rubio there. rubio bowed out of the race in front of supporters in miami-
6:34 am
win, called trump's politics divisive. in the past rubio pledged to throw his support behind any republican nominee. he says he's not ready to go back on the pledge just yet but says he thinks trump would lose a general election and doesn't agree with trump's views. >> i just find what he's doing unacceptable. the profanity, the disrespect, the division and disunity he's creating, this exploiting of peoples' frustration and anger to win an election. that is not leadership, that is not even conservatism. i think it's been really damaging to the party, the conservative movement and ultimately the country. i hope enough voters realize that before it's too late. >> another question of what happens to rubio's 163 delegates. when a candidate drops out of the race delegates are unbound and are open to vote for the convention. if trump doesn't win a majority of the delegates those 163 delegates could have a big impact at the convention but keep in mind rubio hasn't
6:35 am
he has just suspended his campaign. coming up in the sprint i'm going to show you the county by county breakdown of last night's votes. with 18 wins under his belt trump is nearly halfway to the number of delegates he needs to secure the nomination without going to a contested conference. he spent the night in florida thanking supporters and underscoring how crucial it is to bring the party together. >> we have something happening that actually makes the republican party probably the biggest political story anywhere in the world. millions of people are coming in to vote. this was an example of it today. >> where does this leave the republican race? ohio governor john kasich won his first primary last night in his home state but for his campaign to gain steam and overtake trump he needs more wins, odds that rival ted cruz called mathematically impossible. after tuesday's voting both
6:36 am
voters who were backing rubio. >> very, very, great talented and fine united states senator marco rubio. >> to those who supported marco, who worked so hard we welcome you. with open arms. >> if it comes to a contested convention republican rules only allow nominees who have won at least four states to be considered. as of today only trump and cruz qualify. on the democratic side florida was by far the biggest delegate prize last night. with hillary clinton's win here she now has about 2/3 of the delegates needed to win the nomination. abc action news reporter lauren is following the clinton camp. >> reporter: a proud and confident hillary clinton took the stage here last night after securing leads in many key states and of course taking the state of florida. clinton got these crowds pumped with the promise of jobs for florida through new infrastructure and manufacturing projects. also her plan to cut student debt got a huge reaction of cheers especially from young people.
6:37 am
the country and said donald trump is not the person to do it. >> and yes, our next president has to bring our country together so we can all share in the promise of america. we should be breaking down barriers, not building walls. [ cheering and applause ] we're not going to succeed by dividing this country. >> reporter: hillary clinton is now looking toward the general election, she said she's feeling very confident about the amount of votes she's secured last night and is hoping she's just that much closer to securing the democratic nomination for president. in west palm beach, lauren rosella, abc action news. democracy 2016 coverage continues on-line now. we have county by county results of how the votes break down in florida and also summaries of the other big wins. let's check with ivan for a look at the forecast on this wednesday. >> areas of patchy fog, reduced visibilities. in fact in some pockets significantly. i'll be back with the update in a few minutes.
