ohio and nowth carolina. donald trump waking up happy this morning. the billionaire claimed victories in florida, illinois, north carolina. the only state he did not win in, ohio. he finished second to governor johoh kasich. >> let's back up and come back here to florida, a closerook at the florida republican primaries. trump with a commanding victory over senator marco rubio in his home state. that led rubio to suspend his campaign. he announced that early yesterday evening. julia bagg is live in the studio. it was a big night for donald trump for a lot of reasons. when you stop and think about it, it was an even bigger night for hillary clinton. >> certainly, eric, she's the one that got all that separation. she is jubilant, confident, the apparent winn of a clean sweep. the one race that bernie sanders is really hanging his hat on is ohio. he thought he could bag that like he did michigan. it did not happen. even in the races too close to call, it looks like clinton is
she handily won the other right here in florida. of course, the sanders campaign still moving on, hoping as i mentioned to win one state, but that did not happen. clinton told her supportts right here in south florida that she believes this is one of the most consequential elections in our lifetime. donald trump. >> our commander in chief has to be able to defend our country, nonoembarrass it. >> the fact is we have to bring our party together. we have to bring it together. we have -- >> trump, of course, waking up this morning a big wininr as well. he told his supporters even netive ads against him ap pier to have backfired and actually helped him out in florida. he did not take ohio. he's changing the race. details on that are just ahead here on nbc 6. sheli and eric?
florida was the end of the line for senator marco rubio. rubio suspending his campaign nearly a year after it started. nbc 6 reporter erika glover is live at the freedom tower in downtown miami. what is he telling supporters this morning? >> ggod morning, sheli. i can tell you after a second place finish to donald trump, senator marco rubio suspended his campaign. 172 is the numberof delegates that senator marco rubio has right now. thoseill stay with him. that's because he suspended his campaign. he did not abandon his campaign. so if people still vote for him or have already cast ballots in upcoming primary states, he'll add to that number, but it shouldn't be very sisinificant. during tuesday's concession speech, rubio thanked all his supporters for everything and congratulated donald trump on his big victory in florida. he talked about his parents who
1956 who he says had little education, no money and no connectionn they even thought about returning to cuba, but persevered. >> i know all these issues firsthand. i've lived paycheck to paycheck. i grew up paycheck to paycheck. i know what it's like to have to figure out how to find the money to fix the air conditioner that broke last night. i take great comfort in the ancient words which teaches us that in their hearts humans plan their course, but the lord is establishes their steps. so yes, while this may not have been the year for a hopeful and optimistic message about our future, i still remain hopeful and opt mistake about america. >> reporter: now we're going back through that speech. coming up in the next half hour, we'll tell you more about the concessionpeech and what the suspension means for this campaign. reporting in downtown miami, erika glover nbc 6 news.
we mentioned john kasich won his home state of ohio. here is closer look at the numbers. kasich brought in 40% of the vote. the win is the first for him and it does make it harder for trump to win the nomination outright. trump now has to win 60% of the remaining delegates to go uncontested into the convention. it turned out to be a tough night for bernie sanders getting shut out on the democratic side. nbc's dan krauth reports this morning from wynwood. >> there were a lot of boos inside campaign headquarters every time clinton won a state. there was a lot of cheering from supporters of bernie sanders. they sea despite last night's big loss, they're stiti optimistic about the future. have a listen to what supporters and senator sanders have to say. >> we have a lot of delegates out there. this is just getting started. >> we're going to create an economy that works for all of
mi ugh. i really shouldn't. no, you know what? i should. and i will. i deserve this. i'm a bogo findin', weekly ad flippin', couponing mastermind. who's saving big time? this girl! can i help you? indeed. this queen of savings deserves a reward. a cannoli, please. the weekly ad, bogos and coupons. three easy ways to save at the same place you@love to shop.
we know that now rubio has dropped out, kasich has been taking ohio. looks like hillary clinton is sailing toward the nomination. >> thank you florida, thank you north carolina, thank you ohio. >> thosethree states plus missouri and a more narrow victory in her home state of illinois leaves hillary clinton with more than 500 delegates this morning and a clear path to the nomination. bernie sanders is already in arizona for next week's primary. >> we will win if the voter turnout is high. let's make it high. >> donald trump won even with the violence surrounding his campaign. >> you explain it to me because i can't. my numbers went up. don't understand it. nobody understandsdsit.
the last straw for marco rubio. he's out. >> after tonight it is clear ttt while we are on the rght side, this year we will not be on the winning side. >> losing ohio to john kasich means trump needed nearly 60% of all remaining delegates to avoid a brokered convention. >> we're going to go all the way to cleveland and secure the republican nomination. >> ted cruz is hoping to make it a two-man race. >> america now has a clear choice going forward. >> but apparentlt not an easy one. now, this is interesting and it has a lot to do with those voters in florida. it looks like the exit polls are telling us the reblican party may have some trouble ahead. half the voters in florida, in fact, more than half the voters in florida and some other states did not vote for donald trump during these primaries. half of those in florida who didn't say if there was a third partyy candidate to consider in the general election, they might
vote for that third party candidate. so some t tings for the republican party to consider. stillot the unity that many of their candidates are calling for. live from washington, tracie potts, nbc 6 news. it is 6:15. a lot of talk this morning about the next president. the current president, mr. obama, likely to announce his ck for the supreme court nominee as early as today. in terms of the names being thrown out here, this is what we know s sfar. reuters is reporting that the team of advisers helping to vet the candidates line up public supporters and answer the president's kwef finished their work last night. the new justice will replace

activity. where we're finding fog developing across southwest miami-dade, it should be short-lived. not as widespread as what some of you are contending with tuesday morning. wednesday starts off 70 in pompano beach. 9 plpping up into ft. lauderdale. we have a light breeze from the north and northwest. we'll turn that around and kick in the beach breeze this afternoon. either way, no matter which way the wind is blowing from, not much wind out there to die. a picture perfect day through the afternoon. mostly sunny skies. sees that in the keys with highs of about 82 to 84. seeing that in your forecast. the patchy fog won't add up to all that much. 83 by the lunch hour. 86, mostly sunny skies this afternoon. we don't have to contend with rip currents on our beaches. high temperatures on the sand at
next few days, this might look familiar. we'll keep the theme going afternoon highs in the 80s the rest of the workweek. i think saturday is a decent day with a late day shower, highs of 83. sunday, the front moving in. we'll bring in sttered showers and highs of 83. cooler wgter for early next week. we have two accidents, one in miami-dade and one in broward county. a right lane completely blocked off southbound at hillsborough boulevard. not causing any delays as far as miami-dade, i-75 around northwest 103rd street. you are going to find that ramp partially blocked off. this issbecause of an earlier crash with injuries. this turnpike southbound before bird road, two lanes of traffic. we'll have drive times in a couple minutes.

>> interesting, muddled. it cuts off his quick route to the nomination. maybe we see a lot more drawn out of this race. this morning donald trump coming away with florida's 99 delegates. more momentum this morning towards that gop nomination. so he's waking up celebrating certainly with all of h s wins. he's also counting -- he's counting north carolina, illinois and it appears he narrowly beat ted cruz to win missouri. that's according to nbc news. ohio, another stoo. count those 66 delegates for buckeye state governor hn kasich who just earned his first win. >> to havepeople believe in you and to believe that you can bring people together and strengthen our country, i have to thank the people --

now he says, as we mentioned earlier in the show, the fact e e he's come this far shows ho special america truly is. during tuesday's concession speech, he congratulateed donald trump on his big victory in florida, but he asked everyone not to give ino fear or distraction, adding we can disagree with public policy but we must remain hopeful. helso talked about his parents who came to this country in 1956, he said with little ed connections. but he persevered. >> in this country, working hard as a bartender and a maid, they owned a home and retired with dig the. in this country, they lived to see all four of their children live better off than themselves. in this country, on this day my mother who is now 85 years old
her son to be the president of the united states of america. >> now, marco rubio was plaing on heheing to utah to do some more campaiing. that is no longer the case because of this decision. reporting in downtown miami, erika glover, nbc 6 news. >> erika, thank you so much. obviously what erika was talking about is a suspended campaign on rubio's part. what exactly duds a suspended campaign mean, especially for this specific gop election. delegates. that number standing at 172. he can also gain more as the primary battles continue even though he won't actively campaign. back up a little bit, the gop wants to stop trump at all costs, this is the best ing to do since abandoning the campaign altogether would send at least some of those delegates to the billionaire. >> we've seen that in the past,
trump starts talking about them nicely. here is what he said about rubio late last nit. >> number one, i want to congratulate marco rubio on having run a tough campaign. he's tough and smart and has a great future. but i have to say, and nobody has ever, ever in the history of politics received the kind of negative advertising that i have. >> you noticethere a different tone. trump addressed his suppters from his house in palm beach calling florida his second home. hillary clinton close in miss sorry and illiliis, she won all five states against bernie sanders. bernie faa can rest easy. in less than ten minutes, you can cap more from the "today" show whenen kristen welker tells us what it means coming forward. both primaries on tuesday.
>> a hot topic on the ballot for those of you that live in miami beach, the convention center hotel lease. voters supported building it but not by a wide enough margin. the approval of the land lease needed 60% to pass, but only got 54%. mayor phillip levine says he will be working with his colleagues. that convention center is undergoing a $600 million renovation n d expansion right now. perhaps you used it yesterday throughout the day, we did. the nbc 6 news and weather app, your source for decision 2016. right now you can find a delegate tracker ahead of the convention. breaking overnight, we learned an american tourist has been sentenced. plus a south florida cop slapping a homeless man, we could hear from the officer in the big six stories you need to know before you head out the door this morning. a corrections officer's murder remains a mystery this morning.
savor the sunshine another beautiful forecast coming midweek, your wednesday morning should be filled with sunshine. less in the way of cloud cover and certainly less in the way of fog. that doesn't mean there's none out there. it's mainly across southwest miami-dade. another dry day for us. changes coming for the weekend. all is quiet as we look into
let's take another vantage point here and adjust and look into -- well, it turns out to be a very similar shot here. i wanted to@ show you the clouds. they've been in and out, flirting with our skyline here first thing this morning. most of the fog is contained down to west kendall, florida city and homestead areawhere the visibility is again reporting minute by minute, one to three m mles of visibility. that's all tucked away down acrososthat portion of the county. we move into at least the twcounty area, visibility looks pretty good, pretty decent here, light winds overnight and with the winds coming offshore, that's driving the temperatures down into the upper 60s and lower 70s. 71 in pembroke.s, 72 in opa-locka, 72 also in miami. we'll level temperatures out around 70 or so. passing clouds above that i was showing you in our first alert cameras, not yielding any precipitation. i think we have a lot of sunshine in today's forecast, even tomorrow and through friday.
not a whole lot going back for the region. lots of sunshine, light winds and a really good beach forecast. as we get into the next few days, warming things up into the mid 80s. still shy of record high temperatures but still above average. up to 83 as soon as tluchb hour. whtles turn onshore, a light beach breeze in place today, 86 your forecast high. low risk of rip currents. about 85 on the beach the next few days. much of the same. 86 today, 86 morrow, 85 on friday. unfortunately we've had a run of pretty decent weekends this time around. saturday last late in the day a chance of showers, by sunday, scattered showers, forecast, by the time we get to next tuesday and cooler weather, highs in the mid 70s, morning lows back into the 60s.
few seconds ago. i-95 southbound, two lanes of traffic completely blocked off there. make sure you give yourself extra time as you make your way out the door, too. a couple minutes, i'll have pictures on my page, @kellynbc6. traffic starting to pick up, typical morning tie-ups at 6:45 a.m. no issues on the palmetto. over to thee maps, if you're headed out the do you know, coral reef to tamiami trail, 15-minute drive. i-95 golden glades to downtown miami, a 11-minute commute. 6:45. right now we'll focus on decision 2016, with the democrats that race looking more clear. >> a couple of states are close. she had a clean sweep in the five states last night.
kristen welker is in miami. >> reporter: last night was a game-changer. secretary clinton is waking up this morning as a strong democratic front-runner after that defeat in michiga last week, she proved last night she can compete in every corner of the country. that dealt a major blow to bernie sanders. his path to the nomination got tougher. the clinton campaign was expecting to win florida, expectingto win north carolina. she did that and did that convincingly. ohio looked a lot more competitive and she pull a off double-digit win there. the fact she was able to win missouri illinois, it does two things. it gives her a lot of momentum and it gives the optics again that she is going to be tough to beat. the more imporornt thing for the clinton campaign is the math. it's going to be very difficict for senator sanders to catch up to her. secretary clinton has virtually put this race out of reach. still senator sanders vowing to
last night he talked ability the push to arizona. secretary clinton releasing her own ad this morning in spanish in arizona. that's the next battleground of this race, that secretary clinton heads into arizona in a much stronger position.. sheli and eric, bark to you. >> thank you very much from miami. kristin will have a full report coming up on the "today" shw. a $7,000 reward up for grabs if you can help police solve the death of a miami-dade corrections officer. it's been more than six weeks since damion hall was found dead inside his pembroke pines apartment. the police benevolent asssiation offering a reward to figure out who is responsible. hall's mom found his body back in january after he didn't show up for work that day. police haven't said how he died, but his death is classified as a homicide. if you think you can help, call
line at 954-493-tips. we continue to follow breaking news out of north korea. the american student arrested back in january for trying to steal a propaganda banner has been sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in proiz on. north korea's highest court convicted him after a one-hour trial earlier this morning. charges against the university of virginia student claim the cia encouraged him to steel the poster. before his trial, he told reporters he wanted the banner as a trophy for his friend's mother. howeve i should mention that prisoners often are forced to lie on camera and later recant their stories. here is something a lot of people are talking about. if you think your commute is hectic in south florida, be than rgful you're not in d.c. a chaotic commute without the metro system, the second largest transit system in the nation. it is going to be closed for 29 hours.
not shutting down, but telling workers to think of other ways to get to work from home. >> usually we hear about this on cruise ships, now a norovirus outbreak at a south florida school is causing a lot of students to miss class. when say a lot, talking a huge peentage. school administrators are saying since last week at least 100 kids per day have been ab september from citrus grove elementary school in boynton beach. the administration is saying a lot of people staying home as a precaution. norovirus is a contagious stomach illness most heard about on cruise ships. it spreads fast. spring break starts friday t tre which means that hopefully could stop the spread of that virus. >> this morning cuba is reporting its first case of zika contract within that country. the island nation already

make them understand that we are here. >> the mayor will be traveling with a group of graduate university students from massachcsetts. he says he is going and he is interested in analyzing how havana can be a tourism destination that competes with miami beach. as part of the trip, the mayor will also participate in a series of meetings with cuban disdance and the lgbt community. also @going, our nbc 6 family, anchors jackie nespral and juwan stradertart reporting on friday ahead of obama's arrival. > new video out from western illinois. ryan phillips gets excited when he sees this kind of stuff. pretty impressive, but dgerous display in the sky. take a look. this is in the town of bushnell. what you're looking at is a supercell for a giant thunderstorm. incredible. somebody shot this video of the storm cloud and tornado warnings were blare manage the back ground. those sirens, you can actually see a couple of small tornadoes
