wfxr news." wfxr news is your local election headquarters... the virginia presidential primary elections are less than a month away and time is running out for those who still need to register to vote. wfxr's taylor kanost joins with what voters need to know including some changes for those in the city of roanoke. good morning. not only will the virginia primaries on march 1st have big implications on the presidential race, but it will also be the first election in the city of roanoke since city council announced precinct adjustments. last november, city council unanimously voted to reduce the number of voting precincts in roanoke from 32 to 21. the main purpose of
8:04 am
efficiency by creating a better balance of registered voters in each precinct. officials often found in the previous alignment certain precincts would tally over 4,000 votes, while others would only receive around 1,000 votes. now voters are allowed to vote for either the republican primary or the democratic primary, and since the state of virginia does not require voters to register by party, voters can choose to vote in whichever primary they would like. the republican party had required a statement of affiliation. they have since dropped that. we are awaiting official word from the department of elections so hopefully when people no one will have to fill out any additional paperwork than the application itself if you still registered to vote, you need to hurry because the deadline to register for the primaries is next monday, february 8th. you can register online at
8:05 am
offices and libraries. you can also drop by the voter registration office in downtown roanoke. all registered voters in roanoke should receive a notice in the mail over the next week or two with information on whether or not your poll location has changed. with four different elections this year in the city of roanoke, officials urge voters to make sure they have the correct address on their voter registration so they can get to their polling location without too many headaches. reporting in the studio, taylor kanost wfxr news. there are two fewer republicans in the race for the white house.following monday's poor showings in the iowa caucus, both rand paul and rick santorum quit the campaign.paul said yesterday he would concentrate on winning re-election to the u-s senate.after exiting the race, santorum endorsed florida senator marco rubio. on the democratic side, hillary clinton and bernie sanders took the stage last night in new hampshire. but it wasn't a debate... and, they weren't on stage at the

two remaining democrats managed to to continue a war of words...over being a true progressive. jackie ibanez has the latest. 00:00-00:0910-:22:22-:32 1:27-1:34clinton says: "i don't agree with senator sanders that we should start over, that we should throw our country into a contentious national debate about healthcare again." for the first time since former secretary of state hillary clinton's historically narrow victory at the iowa caucuses... clinton and vermont senator bernie sanders....taking part in the same town hall event...wednesday night. sanders says: "of course we're an underdog. we're taking on the most powerful political organization in the country, and that's the clinton organization." the event taking place in derry, new hampshire...less than a week before granite state voters cast their primary ballots. clinton: 22:02:50 i'm a progressive who likes to get things done, and i was somewhat amused today that senator sanders has set himself up to be the gatekeeper on who's a progressive." clinton coming into this town hall reacting to a charge from sanders that she is a progressive - quote - "some days." sanders says: "secretary clinton said, 'some people call me a ....well, i'm paraphrasing...'some people call me a moderate..." and i proudly say that i am a moderate..." that's what she, what all i said...'you can't go and say you're a moderate on one day and be a progressive on the other day." meantime, one new poll released wednesday suggests sanders could have over double the voter support that clinton does in new hampshire.scala says: "she's got the organization to get it done on primary day. the question is whether she can get within reach in the polls that the ground game could make the difference." the new hampshire primary takes place this tuesday...february ninth. in new york, jackie ibanez,

depending depending on who gets the nomination, the presidential race here in the commonwealth could be close. a new roanoke college poll says bernie sanders could defeat all of the republican frontrunners if the election was held today. according to the poll, sanders would take 48 percent of the vote against
8:08 am
iowa winnter ted cruz, sanders would lead 49 to 37 percent of the vote. the vermont senator would fare the best against donald trump. sanders easily outdistanced trump in the poll with a 55 to 33 % lead. hillary clinton also did well against trump with a 52 to 35 percent advantage. but the former secretary of state is in statistical dead heat against republicans cruz and rubio. clinton was predicted to beat rubio 46 to 43 percent.and respondents favored her 46 to 41 percent over cruz. roanoke college interviewed 524 likely votes in virginia from january 18 to the 26th. s cool high pressure will gradually build into the centralappalachians from the west today...passing overhead friday intosaturday. sunday...low pressure moves across the southeast and off the coast. at this time this system will keep the main precipitation southeast of our

you take baking powder with a lot of sodium bicarbonate in it. about a teaspoon. >> anchor: what does that do? >> it reacts to the skin of the chicken. but you do it uncovered sitting in the fridge overnight and the combination of the low humidity in the refrigerator and the sodium bicarbonate in the baking powder draws the moisture out of the skin of the chicken so when you bake them nice and crispy. >> anchor: that's a good tip! >> and pop it more traditional and here you have some butter! >> already know. and some sauce and that's all in equal proportions and the recipe i put online is two tbs, 2 tbs and 2 tbs. a text message coming in! >> anchor: someone didn't turn off their phone for live tv! >> and we have plenty of sauce. you go in the oven for 45 minutes at $425. >> and they'll crunch up?
