gop presidential candidates making their last rounds t-minus 24 hours until the primary...hoping to get more votes. the eyes of the political world are focuses on south carolina. a short time ago, our charles molineaux had a change to talk with meet the press host chuck todd about the pulse of the race. and he says the focus of this presidential race is about to get a lot less focused. this afternoon, chuck todd said tomorrow's republican primary has been hit with another jolt by pope francis' criticism of donald trump which he says could actually "help" trump, putting him back onto the first big issue that made him the 2016 superstar, immigration. this after trump was starting to lose some strength in the polls. all six republican candidates are in south carolina today, but he says we will no longer see so many of them in the same place after the primary tomorrow. 16:58
5:31 pm
over. look, look at a john cacic, who is doing his best to at least show life in south carolina, trying to see if you can get any momentum after new hampshire. he is immediately, you're going to start seeing him go to places like virginia on march 1.then he wants to spend time in michigan which is march 8. ted cruz? he is immediately going to go to texas, oklahoma, all the s ec tuesday states that are on march 1, georgia, alabama. donald trump will be doing the same thing. marco rubio, he is probably going to try tennessee, florida,. each of them is going to try to cherry-pick states after this. but a lot of it depends upon what is the order. look, a third place finish for rubio, i think he's in deep trouble. i think rubio has put all of his chips and the south carolina basket. he is banking on finding a way. he's got all the key endorsements. if he can get second-place, he gets more money, more momentum; jeb bush drops out. he finds more resources, and then he can run that big national campaign. but if you steroid, then he's in the midst of having to cherry pick and only concentrate on i stayed here or a state
5:32 pm
depend, which way these candidates go, it will depend upon what happened saturday night. todd says members of the national media realize they've been giving donald trump months of free publicity and trump and ted cruz have actually spent far less on advertising in south carolina than marco rubio and jeb bush have. but he says trump has repeatedly been "the" big story in this election so when it comes to giving him attention, you're darned if you do and darned if you don't. judi, sam. you can watch meet the press with chuck todd on sundays at 9 a-m right here on wis. even with a hit from the pope, a slight dip in the latest nbc wall street journal marist poll and the governor's endorsement going to marco rubio - experts are still projecting donald trump to do very well tomorrow at the polls. ever since he entered the race in the first debate back in august - trump has maintained a big lead over the other candidates. "this isn't going away. this is not something that people are just sending a message. people believe he's electable and that story
5:33 pm
he wins a primary, well this group thought he was electable, maybe the same thing can happen here. so it really is the more he wins, the more likely it is that he'll win the next one. that's the true definition of momentum." professor oldendick says trump's strength - whether by luck or not - was that he tapped into the distrust many americans feel towards the government. he says that strength could carry him to a win in south carolina. we have much more on decision 2016, including the significance of political polls and what candidates need to stay in the political game. but first, let's check in with meteorologist ben tanner where the weather could be pretty nice for election day. fabulous forecast over the next few days as high pressure is in place. look for mostly sunny skies today through the weekend with highs today in the lower 60s.near 70 saturday and low to

with such tight races coming out of iowa and new hampshire- presidential candidates are all hoping for a solid south carolina win in the primaries- some more than others- will whitson takes a look at why south carolina could be the end of the line for some campaigns. we saw mike huckabee and rick santorum leave the race after iowa- carly fiorina, jim gilmore and chris christie all suspended their campaigns after new hampshire so it's safe to say at least one campaign will end in south carolina if they don't get the results they were hoping for. the 50 winner take all delegates in south carolina's republican primary are the top prize for the winning candidate- but according to scott malyerck, what keeps the campaigns in the

expectations. "if you overperform, that's great for you. if you underperform, that's bad." campaigns like ben carson's have banked on strong expectations in the palmetto state- heading for south carolina before the new hampshire primaries even closed. and after a stronger than anticipated number two finish- john kasich's campaign is banking on the momentum to follow him to south carolina polls. but malyerck says one campaign above all the others really needs to look strong saturday- "in 2000, south carolina saved george w. bush's presidency- it could do the opposite of jeb on saturday. jeb bush has thrown millions of dollars into south carolina. if he doesn't finish in the top three it's going to be hard for him." bush, as well as his florida counterpart, marco rubio, have busted out big endorsements on the palmetto state campaign trail in hopes of attracting voters- governor nikki haley and senator tim scott for rubio, president george w. bush for jeb. the question now is what will it take for victory- one answer from any pundits is high voter turnout- which
5:38 pm
"right now, 65,000 ballots have been returned, that's far more than any absentee ballots that have been cast in any presidential primary in the past" while some campaigns may end after polls close tomorrow in south carolina- malyerck says most likely, the top three finishers in the primary will stay in the race for quite some time. ww, wis news 10 nbc's lester holt will host nightly news live from the capital city's state house tonight at 6:30. that's right here on wis. and to get the latest updates on the campaign trail, head over to our website wistv.com. we will continue our decision 2016 coverage of the republican presidential primary throughout the day tomorrow. and make sure to watch our special tomorrow night from 7 to 8 p.m. the head of a midlands estate sale company will be allowed out on bond after his arrest on breach of trust charges. that development this afternoon

jack kuenzie was at today's hearing and joins us live in the newsroom. judi--tony hendon---who runs the company called estate sale guys---is being let out of jail without having to put up cash. that decision from a judge after hendon's attorney suggested his client is a less-than-stellar businessman who's been struggling financially. hendon was taken into custody yesterday and charged with two felony counts of breach of trust with fraudulent intent. those charges stem from two in a series of complaints filed against him by clients who say hendon agreed to sell off estate property---then failed to turn over proceeds adding up to nearly $100 thousand dollars. we spotlighted some of those allegations in a wis investigation last fall. in court, attorney bill watkins said hendon is quote---"not the best businessman." but watkins says hendon has always planned to fulfill the terms of his contracts with customers. he's had some setbacks. he's never denied that he didn't owe people. he's denied sometimes that he owes as much as they are. he's paid people. he's
5:40 pm
his intent all along has been to pay people. he recognizes he owes them. he's trying to pay them. it's not a situation where he has a ponzi scheme or those kind of things. hendon's bond is set at $100 thousand dollars personal recognizance---which is basically a promise to appear in court. he will have to wear a gps monitor and he will have to pay for that monitor device. but for now, his business will remain open and the estate sales activity can continue. jack kuenzie wis news ten. a boil water advisory is in place this afternoon. it was issued for the 12 hundred block of college street, along with the 900 block of sumter street in richland county. the advisory is due to a water line break. you'll need to boil your water for a minute before using. coming up on wis--it's starting to feel like spring in the midlands! but is it going to stay this way? meteorologist ben tanner has your forecast after the
