plike bernie sanders has a ways pto go. phe has a hill to climb, doesn't phe? p>> he does. pthere was some thought that he pcould really do well in those pcaucuses because of the -- it's pa little smaller turnout, it's pabout really people who are most pengaged and he has a lot of pmomentum as far as excitement on phis side. p but the establishment in the pdemocratic party is raising its phead and supporting hillary pclinton. pand i think you'll see more of pthat in south carolina. p>>russell: all right. pwe have to run. pgood to see you as always. pand we'll talk next monday. p>> sounds good. p>>laura: he's a trooper. pit was a long weekend for him. pdid you see it? pwhat an incredible end to the pdaytona 500. pit was a photo finish and walter phas the highlights of this very plong race. p>>walter: good morning. pdenny hamlin didn't even know he

pcircumstances, i mean, we found p12, 13 years ago, it's his pbirthday today. p>>walter: and looks like denny phamlin was a man of his word. pa letter hamlin wrote in pelementary school, the childhood pessay was written in 1987 and pit's all about the daytona 500. phamlin wrote how he dreamed of pwinning the race and taking home pthe million dollar prize. phe did get one thing wrong. phe predicted he would win it in p1998 but better late than never. pthis was the biggest win for ptoyota and hamlin's first win as pwell. p>>russell: other sports now, prays return to work. pspring training is officially punderway. itch he weres and catchers had pa workout yet in port charlotte. prest of the team joined them pfriday. pkevin cash has a few players to pchoose from to fill his ross perr. pto hockey and the lightning beat
