it's monday, february 22nd. coming up on "early today," breaking overnight. camille cosby forced to testify. the last-minute bid to stop today's deposition related to sexual-assault allegations against husband bill cosby. super tuesday a week away, the shrinking field has the candidates spinning as they shore up support and money. a prayer vigil 24 hours after a shooter went on a rampage. new detail on this the kalamazoo killing spree. the closest finish in daytona 500 history. the ultimate battle of wits and endurance. chess like you've never played it before. and one of the coolest white house meetings ever. "early today" starts right now.
4:01 am
good to be with you. breaking overnight, overruled. camille cosby, wife of bill cosby, is being forced to testify under oath later this morning. late sunday night a massachusetts federal judge denied an emergency motion to delay the deposition of bill cosby's wife. compelling her to answer questions related to sexual assault allegations against her husband. this is the latest of several motions lawyers for mrs. cosby have lost seeking to dismiss demands she be deposed in the civil case against her husband in which seven women claim he defamed them by denying their sexual assault allegations. mr. cosby has repeatedly denied the allegations made by dozens of women accusing him of sexual misconduct or assault dating back to the 1960s. he has counter-sued the seven women suing him in massachusetts claiming they defamed his character. it was a whirlwind weekend for the presidential candidates with a close finish in nevada and a tight fight for second in south carolina. in the end hillary clinton and donald trump took the top spots in their respective races. the south carolina win rockets donald trump ahead with 67
4:02 am
delegates. ted cruz and marco rubio a distant second and third. for the democrats hillary clinton gained 22 in nevada giving her 67 to bernie sanders' 52. the south carolina primary, clinton leads sanders by 29 points going into saturday's matchup. crossing paths the republicans head to nevada for tomorrow's caucuses. most national polls show trump in front by a large margin but the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows cruz edging up to donald by 2 points. all are trying to position themselves best this week because looming large is next week's super tuesday where 13 states hold over 1,000 delegates on both sides. jeb bush is the latest casualty following south carolina's heated race. marco rubio received a shot of adrenaline edging out fellow senator ted cruz by a razor-thin one percent and getting the endorsement of nevada senator dean heller. donald trump topped them all.
4:03 am
the front runner was talking about undocumented immigrants when there were technical difficulties. >> we have 179 illegal immigrants who are criminals. think of it. they are going. they are going. as much as you want to put them in our jails they were probably sent here so that we put them in our jails because to put them in our jails -- they didn't pay the electric bill. i like that much better. >> the trump later said someone told him a protester pulled the wire before the lights went out. >> it's beautiful. thank you. >> reporter: donald trump's grip on the nomination is getting tighter. and he knows it. playing to a crowd of more than 5,000 in atlanta. >> we won with everything. tall people, short people, fat people, skinny people.
4:04 am
just won. >> reporter: trump sweeping all of south carolina's congressional districts, banking all the state's 50 delegates. despite marco rubio's high profile endorsement and ted cruz's focus on evangelicals. a voting bloc trump clinched, 34% to cruz's 26%. exit polls showing like in new hampshire, the majority of trump's voters decided on him months ago, meaning his myriad of controversies and outrageous statements didn't matter. and neither do his inconsistencies. flip-flopping again, republican hot-button issues like funding planned parenthood. >> planned parenthood does a lot of good, a really good job in a lot of different areas. but not on abortion. so i'm not going to fund it if it's doing the abortion. i am not going to fund it. >> reporter: the same exit polling showed nearly half of south carolina voters did not decide until the last minute and they mostly did not decide for donald trump. going forward since the field is winnowing he's going to have to gain, not just maintain, support.
4:05 am
if this crowd is any indication the campaign is confident they will be able to do that. >> katy tur reporting. hillary clinton held on to a thin margin in nevada against bernie sanders. the campaign instagramed this photo captioned, a quiet moment before taking the stage. but after that it was anything but quiet. nbc's kristen welker has more. >> reporter: hillary clinton riding a wave of fresh momentum. >> is this a great night or what? >> reporter: after a decisive victory in critical nevada. >> some may have doubted us but we never doubted each other. >> reporter: for bernie sanders, the loss is a big blow. courting african-american voters at a baptist church in south carolina. >> brothers and sisters, we can do a lot -- >> reporter: and it was black voters who largely delivered clinton's victory. choosing her by a whopping 76% to 22%. after she aggressively engaged them.
4:06 am
and rallying with congressman jim cleburne and morgan freeman, who released a new ad -- >> just like she's always stood with us. >> reporter: there were also obstacles she must overcome. latinoes chose sanders by single digits. younger voters picked the vermont senator by. >> we will do well when young people, when working-class people come out -- >> reporter: both candidates looking forward to south carolina where clinton has a big lead and super tuesday, when 12 states will be in play. >> if she wins big in south carolina, as some people think she will do, then she's going to have tremendous momentum going into next weekend and the super tuesday states. i think it's just a real problem for bernie sanders. >> that was nbc's kristen welker. uber confirmed jason dalton, the man accused in going on a shooting spree in michigan was an uber driver.
4:07 am
one man identified only by his first name says he rode with dalton after the shooting began but before he was arrested. >> i said to the driver jokingly you are not the shooter, are you? he gave me some sort of a no response, like shook his head and he said no. i said are you sure. he said no i'm not. i'm just tired. and we proceeded to have a pretty normal conversation. >> authorities say there is no obvious motive for the shooting and police have recovered a .9 millimeter hand gun. in total six people were killed and a 14-year-old girl was originally pronounced dead for more than an hour when she suddenly squeezed her mom's hand as doctors were about to remove her organs for donation.
4:08 am
the latest in the standoff between apple and the fbi over apple's refusal to help investigators gain access to the i phone of one of the san bernardino shooters. last night fbi director james comey released a statement defending his agency's request saying, "we simply want the chance with a search warrant to try to guess the terrorist's pass code without the phone essentially self-destructing and without it taking a decade to guess correctly. that's it. we don't want to break anyone's encryption or set a master key loose on the land. maybe the phone holds the clue to finding more terrorists. maybe it doesn't. but we can't look the survivors in the eyer ourselves in the mirror if we don't follow this lead." apple said bite not comply with -- apple said it would not comply with a court order to help investigators access encrypted data on the phone, arguing it would endanger the privacy of millions of its customers. reuters is reporting some victims of the december 2nd attack plan to file a legal brief in support of the government's request.
