she's still unsure who she thinks best understands the challenges the state is facing. she did however make it clear that she would not be endorsing the front runner in the race--donald trump. as for the other six--the jury is still out. "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." the governor said at the end of the day--the republican party needs "a fighter." in 2012--haley endorsed former massachusetts governor mitt romney ahead of the south carolina primary. some top watchers of the campaign say a haley endorsement could go a long way in south carolina. today, the university of south carolina hosted a panel of national journalists to talk about the upcoming presidental primaries. our chad mills was there. they hit on all kinds of topics
11:01 pm
hours of discussion in front of a big crowd of mainly students. but, yes, they did talk about governor haley too. haley, by the way, said in her news conference today she may not endorse anyone at all this time around. however, the journalists believe a possible endorsement from her would be a big leg up for whichever candidate scores it. here's what some of them had to say. "she would bring a lot of energy to the ticket. people may not vote for the president, like you guys were saying, because of her, but she could juice up a ticket and really bring energy." "it is striking that the election may come and go without an endorsement from the moment, but one reason may be that she is someone who is on the short list for any of the republican candidates, particularly if hillary clinton is the nominee, and they are looking to kind of counter that appeal among women." "i don't know if the governor will endorse. i do know that her endorsement would
11:02 pm
go a long way here in south carolina right now. she is popular not just here, but she's very popular nationally, but i don't know if she'll ensorse, because you've got to wonder if she was going to endorse, she probably would have done it by now." "she's an effective politician, and her audience around the removal of the flag in response to the horrible events in charleston, i think was an extremely impressive and effective introduction, so based on what we have seen so far, i think that many republicans would look at her as an asset on thehe national ticket. i mean, there are obviously other if marco rubio isn't the nominee, he's someone who's going to get a lot of dicussion. but if hillary clinton is the choice, i think you can guarantee there will be serious conversation, at least, about your governor." the journalists also talked about donald trump and
11:03 pm
that he has a chance to win the nomination, especially after surviving a series of gaffes from last fall up until recently. one of the journalists said he feels the media is somewhat complicit in trump's success because of how much coverage his campaign is given. on the campaign trail one presidential candidate says the death of supreme court justice antonin scalia makes his campaign an urgent one. texas senator ted cruz spoke exclusively with wis-news 10 today. he says rights like religious freedom and second amendment rights could be in danger depending upon who takes scalia's place on the
11:04 pm
sot ted cruz 00:15:42 this vacancy, i knew justice scalia for 20 years. he was a lion of the law. the court hangs in the balance. and i think justice scalia's death really underscores the steaks out of this election. the people of south carolina are asking "who can i trust to make supreme court nominees? republicans have so many times gotten it wrong." and they get it wrong because they're not willing to spend of the political capital, to nominate and confirm approve and conservative. i have spent my entire adult life fighting to defend the constitution and the bill of rights. and part of the reason conservatives are uniting behind my campaign is because they know , they know , that every nominee on the court that i will appoint will be a principled constitutionalist justice. who will protect our rights. earlier today, cruz unveiled his plan to increase america's military forces after what he called "neglect" by the obama administration. ohio governor john kasich returned to the midlands today--after he took a break to campaign
11:05 pm
kasich held a town hall meeting in cayce tonight. a new cnn poll out today--shows kasich could be in trouble in the palmetto state. he's currently in sixth place with only 4 percent of the vote. at tonight's town hall, kasich pledged to keep his campaign positive. "we all plug together. and i'm not going to disappear. i'm not going to go in some bubble somewhere and not be available for people. because i intend to travel the states to tell each of the states how the other states are doing well to solve problems, and fix things, and raise all of us up." the cnn poll shows donald trump ahead by 16 points. cruz comes in second and rubio in third. jeb bush and ben carson are the other two candidates polling ahead of kasich. for democratic candidate bernie sanders--a strong showing in the palmetto state could come down to two key groups...young voters and african americans. and sanders was working to get his message out in columbia today--making stops at allen university and usc. at a town hall event this
11:06 pm

"we have got to achieve the day when young black males and women can walk the streets without worrying about being harassed by a police officer." " "think of him as a protestor,as part of the black lives matter movement and also the civil rights movement and he's not try to buy our vote, he's telling you to keep an open mind." also at the town hall today--sanders touched on topics of gun violence, climate change and providing free college tuition at public universities. taking a look now at your overnight forecast--and what's in store for your morning
