you heard reaction from him just then. jeb bush's suspension of campaign, major focus tonight. trump's big win tonight signifies a major shift in the modern day republican party. voters i talked to said they're just sick and tired of the establishment. tonight, it's an incredible movement with incredible people. lieutenant governor mcmaster agrees. >> nobody i know has ever seen anything like the enthusiasm that is reflected and donald trump. that ought to tell you something right there. >> grace: now, south carolina has a very strong track record for picking republican candidates. since the first in the south primary started back in 1980, they have pick the nominee every time until the last cycle 2012 when we voted for newt gingrich and mitt romney went on to win
grace joyal, abc columbia news. >> alicia: he says there's -- trump says there is nothing easy about running for president, but it's beautiful. >> ben: it looks like the haley bump may have pushed marco rubio all the way to second. >> alicia: and it was after the primary results during marco rubio's remarks, he declared it a three-person race. abc columbia's beth rousseau has more from m bio's camp. >> beth: ben and alicia, it's been a tight race all night here. ted cruz and marco rubio going toe-to-toe and while it's not clear right now what the final outcome will be, rubio and the voters here are pleased with the support and it's a strong showing for him here in south carolina after an extremely disappointing fifth place finish in new hampshire. rubio was abe to pick up high profile endorsements, congressman trey doughty,
hailey. they were here tonight in a packed house with supporters that carry what is now known as a marco men tone. supporters we've spoken with are pleased how he did. rubio himself is calling it a huge step in the right direction, and says this is a three-person race that he's determined to win. >> this has been a long road. there were many people on this campaign when it first started, many good people. many of whom in any other year would have been a front-runner, but now practically speaking, it's down to three and i know that our campaign gives us the best chancnc not justt to c ce together, not just to unify our paerkt but to unify our country and grow this movement. [ cheers and applause ] >> beth: rubio is hopeful this momentum will carry into other states. the true test of that is going to come later this week during the nevada caucuses. reporting at carolina haven, beth rousseau, abc columbia news.
primary it looked like it was between donald trump and ted cruz. >> ben: it certainly did, but in a bit of surprise tonight, ted cruz slipped to third behind trump and rubio. the texas senator spoke with supporters tonight at the state fairgrounds. coming into tonight's primary, one poll, the wall street journal/nbc poll had cruz as the national leader. also tonight, jeb bush dropped out of the race showing. >> alicia: another surprise. speaking this evening at the former florida governor announced he is suspending his campaign. the teary-y-ed son and brother of two former presidents told his supporters that he was proud of the campaign he ran to unify the country. governor haley cast her vote this morning, presumably for marco rubio. >> ben: haley voted at her church, mount horeb united methodist in lexington this morning. earlier this week, less than 24 hours after she said she may not endorse anyone, governor haley announced her support for rubio. >> i'm very excited. it's a great day in south carolina.
the polls. the weather is perfect. people are excited. we make presidents in south carolina. we think it's going to be a great day for marco rubio. >> ben: and they are calling it a record turnout for this primary today. nearly 25%. >> alicia: very, very high. >> ben: that is. >> alicia: when you look at it as a whole, usually for elections, it's about 10%, so to have 20, 25%, doing very well, just from what we're seeing here. abc columbia's photo-journalist leon myers visited several polling places to find out which issues pushed that many voters to the polls. >> national security. push because if we don't have national security, we can't address any other issues. so that's what i'm most concerned about. >> to me, it's really the person, the leadership qualities of the person. presidency is an important job and i just want to make sure that the man, i guess in this
the best job for us. >> obviously, our borders and our national security. i think they're one and the same. >> tells us if the economy is going down the drain or is it really in recovery. we hear it all the time from both sides, so who knows really what's going on. i want somebody up there that tellss the truth and somebody that we can trust is telling the truth and that we can follow them because nobody in this country -- we're all following different directions and i would like to go back to a country where everybody is following in the same direction and get something done for a change because i'm so tired of all the different directions and different rabbits that everybody is chasing. >> alicia: we're going to have much more on the gop primary coming up in just a few, but first, on the democratic side of the aisle, hillary clinton claims her second caucus victory this time in nevada. >> ben: and just like her win in iowa, it was a close one.
topped vermont senator bernie sanders with 52% of the vote compared to his 47. nevada is not a so-called "winner take all" state, meaning even though h inton won the popular vote, sanders still walks away with some delegates. >> alicia: here's how it breaks down. hillary clinton won 18 of the state's delegates, bernie sanders has 14. when it's all said and done, a candidate needs 2,382 delegates to win the nomination. >> this is your campaign and it is -- [ cheers and applause ] >> it is a campaign to break down every barrier that holds you back. >> i believe when democrats assemble in philadelphia in july at the convention, we are going to see the results of one of the great political upsets in the history of the united states. [ cheers and applause ]
democrats are on their way here for the first-in-the-south democratic primary. that vote takes place next saturday. again, just like today, polls open at 7:00 in the morning and close at 7:00 in the evening. now this is important. if you voted in today's republican primary, you cannot vote in the democratic primary. >> alicia: very important. >> ben: and they keep very close tabs on that. >> alicia: as we wrap up the results of the democratic caucus in nevada, we're still evaluating today's republican primary. >> ben: coming up i'll sit down with representative kirkman finlay to discuss what today's results say about south carolina and where the race goes from here.
columbia news. >> ben: welcome back. our coverage of the first in the south republican primary said u.s. i almost promoted you. >> rep. finley: yeah, thank you. >> ben: state rep, kirkman finley, republican from rich land county. you opposited jeb bush and he boud out of the race tonight. who does jeb support now, any -- what are you hearing? >> rep. finley: i event haven't heard anything from their camp. i think it will be very interesting how it develops in
you would think that lot of jejes support would probably naturally accrue to rubio, but some of it may stand-up with cruz or trump. you don't know. >> ben: he was bitter, though, rubio and bush. >> rep. finley: but remember none of that was seen by anybody except south carolinians. all the other primary states, the bitterness and ugliness we've seen doesn't exist. that tonight bother anybody there. >> ben: so the democrats responded to trump's victory tonight, the national chaha says the old -- the once grand old party is now the party of trump. do you agree with that? >> rep. finley: does that mean the democratic party is now the party of bernie? come on. no, seriously, three people came out with a third, 22, and 22% of the voes. we're having a healthy debate in our party about our future. now, some people may not like the debate, but i tell you this. in november, we're all going to be marching to the pls to vote for our guy, whomever that may be. >> ben: who do you think it's going to be?
mathematical point of view, trump -- i have not seen a poll other than that one poll that came out about cruz where trump was losing. i mean, while it is hard to get to the total winning 33, 35%, you. winner take all stays, i think it's trump at this point. >> ben: you know how campaigns go, presidential campaigns are a monster of their own, but do what these candidates do because clearly it's not just wait for trump to stumble or say something -- >> rep. finley: say something incendiary incendiary? who waits for that? >> ben: so what do you do? if you can't beat them, join them? i felt like with the whole pope situation, rubio said i'm with trump with this one. were they playing with siding up to him or tu not see that happening? >> rep. finley: the struggle at this point is in my opinion, they got to, did they being cruz and rubio have to knock each
to be doing his game, which is knocking both of them, so it's very hard for them to figure out how to get ahead. >> ben: and, of course, nikki haley throwing her support behind rubio. the debate could be, did her endorsement, you know, push him to second place, although the exit polls showed that her endorsement didn't really weigh on people how they voted. >> rep. finley: right. >> ben: how do you look at that? is she still a potential pick for vp with marco rubio, do you think? >> rep. finley: i would argue that because rubio -- either haley picked a really good time to endorse rubio or her support really helped him. nobody will know that. as far as being vp, as much as i love south carolina and want it to be politically important, our day was today and next saturday. after that, the states that are going to be in play are going to
and with rubio and kasich, i don't see how somebody like kasich, who's a republican governor in a blue state, isn't number one on that vp list. >> ben: even for trump? >> rep. finley: i mean, he has to win ohio and he has to win florida. >> ben: kirkman, that's all the time we have, although i could talk
to you probably 20 more minutes. appreciate youou coming in in late. we'll be back with your abc
