the day--the republican party needs "a fighter." in 2012--haley endorsed former massachusetts governor mitt romney ahead of the south carolina primary. meanwhile--the money presidential candidates are spending on tv ads is reaching new highs as we quickly approach the primary on saturday. wis's allie spillyards has been tracking the numbers for a week now -- and joins us with the latest. charles and judi, here in the midlands alone, total spending for 2016 has grown about a half million dollars in the past week, and we've still got a few days to go before the republican primary. but we wanted to take a look at what's been spent across the state since the first of the year. so we took the top 3 republican candidates according to the polls... donald trump, ted cruz and marco rubio... who altogether account for about 80- percent of candidate spending. but remember, this does not include political action committees. instead we're talking about money from candidates' pockets. although trump's first in the

spender of the top 3... coming in at 600-thousand dollars on tv spots. ted cruz has spent a significant bit more right around 1.3 million. and then marco rubio, battling out it for second place in the polls, comes out on top with dollars spent at close to 1.6 million dollars. this totals about 3.5 million, but i want to reiterate, this is just a small percentage of spending. across the state, political action committees have spent nearly triple the amount campaigns have in the same amount of time. your forecast is a huge turnaround from what we had yesterday. von gaskin is in the weather center now with a closer look. a fast moving "clipper" will deliver a few scattered showers this evening into very early wednesday morning with lows near 40 degrees. the sun is back wednesday through sunday with warming temperatures

6:04 pm
well at fn manufacturing---the firearms maker in northeast richland county. governor bush is hoping to revive some of the loyalties, some of the magic that helped push his brother and father into the white house. south carolina has been historically strong for the bush family----but if the latest polling is any indication, the third time is proving to be not so charming for jeb bush. he's trying to spotlight his experience as a chief executive, his support for rebuilding the military in a military-friendly state. he's taken some shots at front-runner donald trump---calling him a "complete loser" with trump's attack at his brother on protecting the nation before 9/11. but there is also a message here of unity---governor bush saying essentially enough with the divisiveness of the

what we need to do is we need to follow the pattern that ronald ragan followed in the 1980s. ronald reagan past tax reform and regulatory reform. unleashed the economy. we saw blooming economic growth, unleashed the american free enterprise system. that economic growth produced trillions in revenue which he used to rebuild the military. and doing that bankrupted the soviet union and won of the cold war. i intend to do the exact same thing with radical islamic terrorism. cruz also denied accusations that his votes in the senate have favored reductions in the military in the past. he predicted victory for his campaign through bringing together the coaliton of conservatives, libertarians and evangelical christians that helped elect ronald reagan in the 1980s. trying to capitalize on his popularity among youth voters--today democratic presidential candidate bernie sanders was at allen university and usc. our billie jean shaw stopped by the senator's town hall, where he spoke to a packed room of usc students.
6:07 pm
welcome from representative justin bamberg, a former hillary clinton supporter and erica garner, the daughter of an african-american man from new york who died while in police custody. sanders began by focusing on what he believes is police brutality in the african american community and how he will come up with a plan to address the issue. the crowd became fifid up as he went on to discuss free college tuition and expanding health care for all. while those were big issues, it was sanders' stand on jobs and increasing the minimum wage to 15 dollars an hour that really resonated with the crowd. "one trillion dollars in investment over 5 years will create 1 1million decent paying jobs and that is what i plan to do." but not everyone in the audience was "feeling the bern." i spoke to a few voters who say today's event made it even more evident why sanders will not receive their
6:08 pm
"i do disagree with a lot of things he has to say including the free tuition because when that happens and people don't realize who is going to pay for it, that's going to be higher taxes." "where is all that money going to come from he talked about taxing the upper class more but i was how much money you will get in from all that." i did ask some of sanders' supporters if they were concerned about he economic side of his plans- they tell me they believe his ideas are possible by means of investments. in the newsroom, billie jean shaw, wis news 10. coming up on the news at 6-- lawmakers are working on a special day to remember the charleston church shootings. plus, president obama says he has the constituion on his side when it comes to the

nomination to the supreme court this year...and he intends to move ahead with his choice. today, the president addressed the issue of nominating a justice to the supreme court, following the death of justice antonin scalia over the weekend. senate republicans have vowed to delay consideration of a replacement until the next president is elected. "there's no unwritten law that says it can only be done in off years. that's not in the constitutional text. i'm amused when i hear people who claim to be strict interpreters of the constitution suddenly reading into it a whole series of provisions that are not there." if the senate were to move forward with confirming a nominee by the president--it could tilt the conservative-leaning court to the left. many of the republican presidential candidates have also proposed a senate delay on

something is just fundamentally broken when african americans are more likely to be arrested by police, and sentenced to longer prison terms, for doing the same thing that whites do. ...when too many encounters with law enforcement end tragically. we need investments in education, health care and jobs, to counter generations of neglect. we have to face up to the hard truth of injustice and systemic racism. i'm hillary clinton,
