6:07 pm
rubio. untrustworthy is not an adjective you want in a hillary clinton. but young is not necessarily a bad word. and in this antiestablishment comment even inexperienced can be positive if it helps brand you as an outsider. but other candidate descriptions were devastating. weak for jeb bush, scary for ted cruz. and bully for chris christie and perhaps the unkindest cut of all topping otherwise positive adjectives for john kasich, unknown. tonight at 11, what new hampshire voters told us they were looking for most in a candidate. david. >> and they called you jon lovely that was the number one word. >> reporter: that's sweet. >> thank you. join us primary night live coverage beginning at 5 on tuesday night. she spent her life helping heal others. >> a young nurse hit by a car and killed. coming up, why prosecutors say

chatham and up to orleans and providencetown and by 7:30 the snow will be moving out and things will wrap up. but treacherous road conditions. we have a gusty breeze. doesn't take a lot when you have the really heavy wet snow out there. you've seen it all day trees snapping and lines down. treat any line down as live one and if you don't have to go out tonight, probably a good idea because we will have fallen trees and limbs at the least avoid walking under tree canopies. quieter times for the weaning as the storm moves offshore. tonight's temperatures cold under the clearing skies and single digits and teens which is why you want to clean up tonight because things will be freezing up and that's also going to make the roads extra dicey. so we look towards tomorrow and good news is melting comfortable air will be up into the 30s and great day for the kids to enjoy some of the snowfall reality first time we have what thick blanket. and you can use the skis and snow sure and southern new
