in four years things might be dramatically different. "well, it won't happen again. the bottom line is i had a choice to make at the debate and i chose not to attack another republican because i didn't wanted to turn into a republican-on-republican fight. but, unfortunately, the press and others looked at that as a way of being evasive and that created a distraction for us. i made the wrong decision and, from now on, if were challenged, will point out the differences in our records with the other candidates.

a richland county councilman has pleaded guilty for failing to file his income taxes. kelvin washington will not have to serve any prison time --- provided he pays a twenty five hundred dollar fine. mike desumma was in the courtroom this afternoon and joins us from our newsroom. mike. judi -- washington was also given three years probation as part of the sentencing -- one for each year he failed to file a state tax return. according to prosecutors that was from 2012 until 2014. during that time washington failed to report more than 426 thousand dollars in earnings. investigators charged washington late last year during a state department of revenue investigation into the richland county penny tax program. the councilman has not been tied to any alleged 'questionable spending' in the program. today washington addressed the court --- saying a career transition period was why he got behind in his tax work. "just didn't take care of my personal assets in with regards to transitioning from public work...working
5:05 pm
work...just got behind." washington's attorneys expect he will have civil penalties coming in addition to his sentence in court today. they say since the charges came down last year --- he has filed his back tax returns. in the newsroom, mike desumma, wis news 10. republicans and democrats turn their attention to south carolina---knowing they have to alter their approaches for a much different political landscape. we spoke to both state party chairmen about how the campaigns will adapt to the palmetto state. in south carolina we have about four times as many voters as new hampshire. upwards of six or seven hundred thousand voters in south carolina. it's not just an air war or a ground war, this is a test for campaigns of every aspect of their arsenal. you've got to have a good ground game, a good tv game, good analytics to attract voters and get them to the polls. key demographic--african american women. and that is at the heart of the
5:06 pm
and needs to be at the heart of the bernie sanders strategy. bernie needs to cut into her margin, into that support with african american women. hillary clinton on the other hand, needs to keep that support as high as it possibly can. the gop's chair matt moore also says republican candidates will have to focus more on the state's large pro-military constituency. democratic chair harrison says both parties need to find ways to involve young minority voters. advertising dollars are rolling in to south carolina ahead of the republican and democratic primaries. allie spillyards spent the day crunching the numbers on how much candidates spend. allie? according to the fcc, candidates have spent more than 4 million dollars in columbia's tv market alone. you'll see the presidential hopefuls ranked by their current place in south carolina polls. starting with the republicans... trump $113,000 cruz $407,000 rubio $513,000
5:07 pm
here in south carolina, clinton's currently the front runner and she's spent $93,000 while sanders has spent just a couple thousand less at $91,000. spent $93,000 while sanders has spent just a couple thousand less at $91,000. now you'll notice several candidates missing. that's because the huge majority of tv ads here in south carolina have been purchased by pacs. i'll share those numbers with you coming up at 6. another interesting number for our station alone... spending on political ads more than doubled between january and february... and those numbers are expected rise as we get closer to both parties' primaries. as we approach the south carolina primaries, all of the candidates are going after the youth vote. it is especially proving to be a key battleground for democrats. wis' billie jean shaw has more on what's motivating
5:08 pm
bernie sanders' big win last night in new hampshire is being partially credited to younger voters, who came out in force for the vermont senator. hillary clinton has acknowledged that she has a lot of work to do with younger voters. so, it's no surprise that we see celebrities already campaigning for clinton in south carolina. the sanders campaign has been holding "feel the bern" rallies on hbcu campuses. with more than 230- thousand registered voters under the age of 24 in our state, the candidates are doing whatever they can to try and connect with that generation. here a sample of what i heard on the benedict campus today. "i feel like bernie sanders he really speaks for the people of today and he's not really trying to appeal to people because of their ethical background. "i've only looked at donald trump and hillary clinton, that's pretty much it. i can say i oppose most of what he said and most of what she said i agree with it. "i am proud supporter of bernie sanders, only
5:09 pm
because he's been saying the same thing for over a couple of years now. to me i don't appreciate candidates who are going to go back on their word." between now the and the february 27th primary you can bet clinton and sanders will hold alot of events targeting young voters. in fact, the sanders campaign is planning a "heart bern" rally in 5 points saturday night at 7. former president bill clinton will be in florence on campaign for his wife. he will speak at francis marion university's saturday evening at 7:30. as the schedule of campaign events are released we'll keep you updated on wistv.com. despite a third place finish in new hampshire last night, senator ted cruz had people on their feet today in myrtle beach. cruz says he believes he is the only republican candidate with a running track record of being a true conservative. and g-o-p candidate jeb bush spoke to hundreds of cadets at the citadel in charleston. the former florida governor says as president

5:11 pm
department of transportation has warned, unless the state starts putting money into repairing roads soon, it will soon end up costing much more to rebuild them. christy hall and members of the state infrastructure board testified for a second day during the senate finance committee meeting. hall says fixing malfunction junction still remains its largest project and a top priority for the dot, as it has been ssce 2007. she broke down several priorities from paving projects, widening bridges and relieving congestion -- stretching from interstates to primary and secondary roads. hall says a minimum investment of an $200 million annually would help stop the decay of current roads and bridges over a 10 year span. lawmakers say the purpose was to gather information to prepare for the full senate debate. "i wanted to make sure that the committee heard from both about what they do, when they do, why they do it, how they do, so that the committee and the full senate can make an informed decision. that's

john kasich was in mt pleasant, and jeb bush made a stop in charleston. with south carolina republicans now just ten days from a critical primary vote---we will see a very familiar political figure stumping the palmetto state. former president george w. bush is expected to campaign here on behalf of brother jeb and ask for help from a state that's been very friendly to the bush family. jack kuenzie joins us with the effort to boost the latest bush presidential bid. charles, they used to say south carolina is bush country. jeb bush is hoping that is still the case as he emerges from new hampshire with some new life in a campaign that burned through a ton of money but has way underperformed predictions. the former florida governor worked the lowcountry today---just a few hours after escaping new hampshire with 11 per cent of the vote, a fourth place finish and three delegates. that put bush ahead of marco rubio and just behind the winner of the iowa caucuses, senator ted cruz. in south carolina---governor bush

his second place finish last night. jack kuenzie wis news ten. following a strong finish in new hampshire, john kasich plans to spend the next week and a half campaigning in the palmetto state. but some wonder, "is there enough time to stage a similar result in a state where he's trailing in the polls?" allie spillyards takes a look. taking a look at the polls ahead of the south carolina primary, john kasich ranks low, polling at only 2 percent. kasich's held a few events in our area like a town hall at west columbia's brookland baptist church back in november. but for the most part, his presence has been limited. when it comes to tv advertising, kasich's campaign hasn't spent money in our state, and a pac working on his behalf's spent a mere $30,000... which is pennies on the dollar to bush's million plus and cruz and rubio's hundreds of thousands. many have speculated kasich's focusing his attention on the midwest, but that's left him playing catchup

candidates have spent months campaigning. "he was kind of the last one to announce... the last major candidate to get in the race, so he's been running from behind. and also, he's not had a lot of name recognition, so he's had to take the debates and the time up till now, even to some extent in iowa, but to a much greater extent concentrating all of his resources in new hampshire. so the fact that he comes here, it really is a hindrence, it makes it that much more difficult." oldendick went on to say kasich does stand to bring over some of chris christie's supporters with the new jersey governor dropping out. and when i asked whether there was any precedence for the candidate who joins the race last taking home the win in south carolina, oldendick said not in recent years. in 2000, bush had the name recognition to pull ahead of mccain's strong lead in new hampshire. gingrich also pulled ahead of a frontrunner from new hampshire in 2012, but once again...
