i'm an accountant i can tell you there is no audit that precludes you from showing your tax returns. donald trump show us your tax returns" the governor responded by tweeting: "bless your heart" voters are still hitting the polls in the super tuesday states and voter turnout is expected to hit new records. especially for republicans. that's something we saw play out here in south carolina a couple of weeks ago. jack kuenzie joins us with more on that. judi and charles---this state has a pretty good track record of predicting nominees, especially for the gop. maybe what we saw herereuring the primaries will also be instructive of turnout trends in this early part of the election cycle.
5:01 pm
up---democrats down. the trends for the two parties since 2008 in this state show a significant drop in democratic voter participation----while gop voters continue to turn out in greater numbers. 2008 of course, a good year for the democrats here with the first contest between hillary clinton and a relative newcomer named barack obama. about 23 per cent of democrats go to the polls---almost 20 per cent of republicans. in 2012----then-president obama firmly in command and there was no democratic primary here as he sought and eventually won his second term. south carolina republicans managed to grow their turnout by a couple of points---in the year they chose former house speaker newt gingrich and snapped their string of picking a candidate who went on to win the party's nomination. this year, continued expansion of gop participation---a sharp rise of almost four per cent with just over 25 per cent voting. a level of enthusiasm likely driven in some part by the trump candidacy. democrats meanwhile---dropped
5:02 pm
dramatically by almost ten per cent compared to the 2008 numbers, while still handing secretary clinton a landslide victory over bernie sanders. today, we're seeing some early indications that super tuesday states---many here in the south--are also seeing strong turnouts for republicans, less so for democrats. trump is leading polls in most of those states with one or two exceptions---primarily texas where senator ted cruz is hoping to win and stop speculation that his campaign can't continue if he loses his home state. in fact, winning home states is absolutely critical for all of trump's remaining challengers. it would seem if cruz loses texas and if rubio loses florida and if kasich loses ohio they're all out. rubio's probably in the most precarious position. rubio is already fighting off attacks from trump that he hasn't won any of the states to this point. if he loses florida march 15th, it could be fatal to

increasing clouds by late afternoon with scattered showers and a thunderstorm or two late night into wednesday morning. rain chance 50% tonight into wednesday morning. inside the state house- south carolina senators were anticipating another long filibuster over the roads bill... but now, there's a filibuster
5:33 pm
taking place in the senate- will whitson reports. state senator gerald malloy took the podium earlier today- blocking a vote not on roads- but instead on peanut's law- a law about road construction zone safety- in doing so, keeping lawmakers from discussing roads at all. the senate purposely started early today to get the roads filibuster started early- a filibuster here in the state senate is a little different than what you see in washington- the body can adjourn for the day, and they can discuss and vote on other bills- which is where peanut's law comes into hour ago, speaking about the failure to pass roads- and in

discussing the bill. darlington "we don't want to raise the taxes! we don't want to have the discussion! we've got all these amendments on the desk and no real way to get there." now- other democratic lawmakers are on the floor- still filibustering peanut's law- but lawmakers are only really talking about roads- also saying today, which was supposed to be all about roads, has been a waste of time. live, ww wis news 10 the seemingly endless filibuster is not only frustrating for lawmakers - sam bleiweis reports it's continuing to affect those who are out on the roads every

charles, most of the drivers i spoke with today were able to quickly recall a recent popped tire thanks to a pot hole on either an interstate, or a local road. and the biggest concern - the cost of replacing it. drivers say bridges and on-ramps are problem spots across the state. one driver told me that going west towards aiken he's seen a lot of roads that are touched up, but not completely fixed. many drivers say especially driving at night - when it's already hard to spot hazards on the roads, that's when those potholes seem to jump out of nowhere. "it's hard to see and the cones that they put out for them get moved and then you don't see them and you drive straight into potholes and pop your tires." "i bought it a year and a half ago and about three months after i bought it i broke the axel on fish hatchery road." both of those complaints common among people we spoke with today. another complaint davis had was all of the incomplete road work - she says she's had six nails in all four of her tires, they've all been replaced.
5:36 pm
roads are this bad, where the money is going - that's what they are hoping to hear from lawmakers. meanwhile, the filibustering continues. the longest-serving lawmaker in the state's house of representatives announced today he won't seek reelection in november. democrat grady brown gave an emotional farewell today- surrounded by several colleagues and senators. brown said he would serve out the rest of his term- but acknowledged there are younger citizens who want his job. "the job is no bigger than you, lot of people come up here and say i'm a house member, i'm a senator, i can do what i want to. never forget those who sent you. and if you do, you don't stay very long." brown has served as the representative for lee, kershaw and sumter counties since 1985. some local athletes are literally running around the state - raising funds for a river bluff high school coach brian thompson - who is battling colorectal cancer.

thanks for joining us this evening. i'm judi gatson. tonight we could know who is best positioned in both the democratic and republican races for president. it's super tuesday--possibly the most important set of contests the largest slice of the delegate count is on the line in the 2016 primary season. front-runners donald trump and hillary clinton are expected to do very well tonight--but their respective challengers say they're not ready to call it a race just yet. polls in several states along the east coast are expected to close in the next hour. the proof will come later tonight as the votes roll in. but if the latest polls are accurate, this could be a breakthrough day for donald trump as he builds momentum toward taking the gop presidential nomination. and if trump comes away the big winner---what then, for members of his own party who don't want him to be their nominee? jack kuenzie is here with more on that.
6:00 pm
questions now looming over the gop judi and charles. and it is one that could determine the outcome of the general election if donald trump becomes the republican nominee. trump has drawn big crowds and become the hero of the angry conservative electorate. he's also, especially in the last couple of weeks, turned into a target for high-ranking, high visibility members of his own party. not only his two principal challengers, senators ted cruz and marco rubio---but a range of big name party leaders like former nominee mitt romney, house speaker paul ryan and south carolina's own nikki haley and lindsey graham. while there have been a few critics converted to the trump cause--new jersey's chris christie for instance---there is already a sizeable chunk of the gop who would appear to have a tough time signing on with the trump team just because there will be an ''r" next to his name on the fall ballot. it seems that there are only two ways to go. hold your nose and go with a candidate that you don't particularly like or alternatively you back
