takes money from and is greatly influenced by wall street? let's listen to her statement about that last night. >> i'm very proud of the fact that we have more than 750,000 donors and the vast majority of them are giving small contributions. >> what about that question? >> reporter: that is true, but it just doesn't tell the whole story. he's got 3 million donors giving small donations. but the key difference here is she has a pac, a super pac, application action committee, he does not. and he's constantly made a big point of saying he doesn't have the extra wealthy donors who are putting out ads and other things in support of him. so the vast majority of his money is coming from ordinary americans with these small donations and while lots of hillary clinton's money is also coming from small donations from ordinary americans, she also has the super pac and they do have a lot more
4:48 am
able to give. so, yes, what she said is true, just not the entire picture when it comes to campaign finance which is something that bernie sanders has really been honing in on. >> all right. tracie potts live on capitol hill for us. thank you. some people are criticizing last night's moderators for not bringing up hillary clinton's e-mail controversy. just yesterday, a federal judge ordered a round of clinton's e-mails from the time she was secretary of state be released, the deadline just hours ahead of the super tuesday primaries. 14 states including virginia will hold primaries that day. and republican candidates will face off tomorrow night in greenville, south carolina. that debate starts at 9:00 p.m. 4:48. we now know when services will take place for one of two killed ha harford county deputies. vigil for pat dailey will take place
4:49 am
funeral next wednesday. and while the funeral services for the other fallen deputy are still being made, they are taking time to remember the two. dailey was a 30 year veteran. and mark served for 16 years. both were military veterans and decorated officers who left families behind. dailey was shot inside the panera restaurant on wednesday. and the other killed after being shot in the parking lot the outside. the sheriff now says suspect david evans targeted the officers. >> it is our belief that because he knew there was an warrant out for his arrest that's why he took the acts against the police officer. we don't believe he laid in waiting to ambush. >> evans was kised

shoot-out with police. he had a long history of violence. ex-wife was the one who saw him inside the restaurant and called police. 4:50 right now. baltimore court refuses to postpone the trials of three officers charged in freddie gray's death. but there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding this case. maryland's court of appeals has been asked to review the cases of five officers whose trials could hinge on whether a sixth officer can be forced to testify against them. a circuit court judge has ruled that officer william porter must testify against two officers. porter has appealed. lab tests show that remains found in manassas are human. they were found in the woods near barrett drive on january 13th. police say the victim is a man, but no other information is being released. in just a few hours we'll find out about a new plan to boost jobs in the district. mayor muriel bowser is

4:52 am
employers, but the district's chief financial officer says that would not be nearly enough to cover the cost. in fact one expert says it would cost five times the initial estimate. let's turn to chuck bell now and talk about this forecast. it's not quite as windy as it was yesterday this time. so -- >> a little nicely. . >> very little. >> yesterday was the first of two real shots of cold air that came in and came is sort of the respite between where we get a little chance to recover. won't be quite so frigid on your plans outside today as it was yesterday afternoon. but it will still be cold. today it will feel like it's in the 20s most of the day, but tomorrow and tomorrow night, that will be the worst of the worst of it around here. it will faeel like the single numbers away here for most of the day here tomorrow being single before or below zero. sunday still bitterly cold, but the wind will lay
4:53 am
near 30. but this morning, it's chilly. 14 in gaithersburg, 20 here in town. so planning out your day hour by hour, plenty of sunshine and cold this morning. by later this afternoon, skies will be going mostly cloudy, temperatures just above the freezing mark. but by 6:00, 7:00 tonight, a risk for a little hint of snow showers coming our way. here is our future weather forecast model. clouds coming in during the course of the day and dry through most of the daylight hours. but after about 3:00, 4:00, this little ripple of snow shower chances coming through the shenandoah valley, that creeps in here between 6:00 and 10:00 tonight. it could leave a quick coating. forecasts about a quarter to half an inch of snow. so we're not talking about a lot of snow, but the ground is frozen. so remember, that first little bit is going to stick, stick, stick right away. for tomorrow, wake up temperatures tomorrow in the teens with chills down near zero. very
4:54 am
tomorrow, but look at the temperatures holding in the low 20s during the day tomorrow. and then after that, the next thing we need to watch out for comes up on monday. president's day. so a lot of people will be off work, but nonetheless know that light snow will be starting monday morning and could have a couple of inches of snow around here monday afternoon and monday night. not going to be a long lasting impact because temperatures are rising and it will start as snow and may get a couple of inches of snow on monday, but it changes over to all rain. and it will be near 50 on tuesday. so a lotting for ing fogoing o seven days. so best advice, hold your honey close saturday night in to sunday. and now here is melissa mollett. >> it will be a brutal weekend. still have the issue here 95 in maryland. so once again we're talking about the section between scaggsville road and 32. some lanes blocked in each direction right now. only moving about 25 miles per
