the senate is to governor nikki haley says she still isn't sure whether or not she'll be endorsing a presidential candidate. the governor says she knows it needs to be soon but she's trying to decide whether she should get involved, or just stay out of it. but - when asked about recent comments donald trump made about guantanamo bay detainees and syrian refugees - she told reporters it's safe to say she will not be endorsing trump. "you know, when you have candidates that come in, that go against governors, it's everything that a governor doesn't want in a president. because we don't want a president that's going to just bash and sit there and tell us what we're not doing right. we want a president that 's
help us win, plus explain why we don't want syrian refugees, why we don't want guantanamo bay prisoners, why they don't need to come to south carolina. i thought it was quite "obama-like." the governor also said she was embarassed at trump's criticism of former president george w. bush's handling of 9/11. the governor went on to say that at the end of the day - the republican party needs "a fighter." former florida governor jeb bush has been working the midlands today---after a rally with his brother, former president george w. bush yesterday in the lowcountry. at this hour, governor bush is in the batesburg- leesville area. jack kuenzie joins us live from one of that community's best known landmarks. jeb bush and his opening and closing act, senator lindsey graham have been on the road in richland and lexington counties. earlier today, at fn manufacturing in northeast richland county where

struggling. this afternoon, cruz sat down exclusively with wis news 10's charles molineaux. charles... cruz came to columbia today as he pushes his plan to strengthen the u.s. military. he came to the wis studios after he unveiled his agenda in mount pleasant this morning saying america's armed forces have been "neglected" and "humbled" by obama administration policies. cruz told me he is the candidate to reach out to south carolina voters who are struggling, especially minorities who now vote overwhelmingly democrat. 00:08:48 we reach out by telling the truth. and the truth is the policies of the left, the policies of the democrats, i have been a disaster. and the people that of been hurt the most are the most vulnerable. it's the minority communities.

correctness in the pentagon and that military commanders should be worried about combat readiness, not providing gluten free mres. he also denied accustions from his competitor marco rubio that he has "not" been a champion of funding for the military. we'll have more of our exclusive interview with senator ted cruz on wis news 10 at 6. ben carson will hold a meet and greet with his supporters in aiken at 6 tonight. then he'll attend the "last word in the south" presidential forum at usc aiken. and john kasich is set for a town hall in cayce tonight. we'll be there for the event. the warm front is now through the midlands this morning and temperatures 30 warmer in some places.so the wedge is gone! a cold front will move through by midday, this front does not have much cold air behind the front, in fact high pressure

working his strategy of targeting college students. our billie jean shaw was there as he rallied hundreds of students to "feel the bern." since the last debate, bernie sanders has been tagged as a "single issue candidate by democratic front runner hillary clinton. today, sanders indirectly addressed that claim by laying out his stance on several issues. the vermont senator started off his morning at a prayer breakfast at allen university followed by a town hall at the university of south carolina.
"rumors of him being a radical democrat" and told the crowd of young voters that he says he simply wants to build a future that americans can believe in. while he touched on several topics like gun violence, criminal justice reform and climate change it was his position on free tuition for public colleges and universities that garnered the most attention from the audience. " a college degree in many respects is equivalent to what a high school degree was 50-60 years ago. 50 years ago you have a college degree you're in pretty good shape and you go out and get a job but not today. that is why i believe we should make public colleges and universities tuition free." it's no suprise that students like that idea. but some have questions about how sanders would pay for the free college tuition proposal.
and it does need to come from somewhere but i think that it needs to be invested obviously to make our nation great again and you look at the things that trump wants to do, he wants to build a wall, where is that money supposed to come from?" coming up on the news at 6, we'll hear sanders' proposal to create more jobs and the reasons why everyone at today's event was not "feeling the bern." dawndy. and former president bill clinton was in the upstate campaigning for his wife hillary. during an appearance in greenville, he touched upon fixing college debt through refinancing. and he talked about the importance of small business loans for entrepreneurs and farmers. the warm front is now through the midlands this morning and

"i'm doing what i think a lot of people in south carolina are doing, which is, i watch the debate. i'm trying to go through all the situations, i'm looking at all the candidates who are there, and trying to figure out who that person would be. so no, i'm not at a point yet."
