>> i got to really re-evaluate after what he said about george w. bush. the mainstream democratic party opposition of george w. bush, didn't go where donald trump went. being responsible for 9/11 that's something that comes from the part of america. we're just five days away from south carolina primary, which could be a critical moment for many of the campaigns and this morning the battle over the supreme court is shaping up to be a key issue and abc's tom llamas is here with that. >> reporter: this week and this primary, so important for candidates like jeb bush and even senator marco rubio, who need a victory, a boost, anything positive as we get
