7:08 am
delegates, extremely difficult. cruz, it's virtually impossible, he needs 87%, kasich, it is impossible to get a majority before the convention so what does it add up to? it's virtually certain we're headed to a contested convention. >> speaking of considerable lead, clinton has has one in terms of delegates but bernie sanders still has that momentum. >> reporter: what a victory last night in wisconsin but if you look at the overall delegate map, hillary clinton has a huge lead, almost 700 delegates more than bernie sanders but why? mostly because of those so-called superdelegates, democratic officials who can vote however they want regardless of how their states went. if you look at the states bernie sanders has won 15 states, almost as many as hillary clinton. now, she's still got many more votes and can only win 35% of delegates going forward and still clinch the nomination. >> nothing boring about this election. all
7:09 am
and let's send it over to george. >> let's pick up with matt dowd, our little analyst. when i sat down with hillary clinton yesterday she said she didn't have to wing new york. that's not exactly true. >> no, i think she has to win new york, not because of the math of the situation, but because it con dates the party and goes into a general election. she doesn't want to be in a situation where she's lost multiple states and loses her home state. makes it difficult headed to the general. >> big win for ted cruz. what you saw there, you were remarking donald trump's support didn't go down. it's just ted cruz consolidated all of the anti-strum or almost all of it, which means a delegate-by-delegate, district-by-district fight going forward. >> likely to go to a contested convention. for donald, he'll have to decide if it's his waterloo or alamo and he'll have to make that difference and to quote "invictus." he was the pastor of his
7:10 am
and master of his control. >> jon, you're back here right now. if he doesn't get to that big number of 1,237 we have this open convention. let's walk through what it means. first day a vote over who is even eligible to get the nomination >> that's right. this is unchartered territory in our lifetimes. last time we had a multiballot open contested convention was 1948 so have that argument over rules and first ballot which essentially follows how the states voted you, but virtually all those become free to how to vote and you have an entirely new election with simply those 2,500 delegates. >> they have all the power at that point, matthew dowd. a lot think if he doesn't win on the first ballot he can't get there. if ted cruz doesn't win on the second ballot they'll look for somebody else. >> their highest number for him is trump and ted cruz for
7:11 am
second. trump said he doesn't care about the rules but the rules matter and he'll have a problem if he doesn't figure that out before the convention. >> thank you. now to those freeze warnings in the east, record lows being set this morning.

welcome back to "gma." you're looking at those wildfires in oklahoma tearing through the plains this morning. evacuations are under way right now and we are tracking the new warnings. also right now, ted cruz and bernie sanders scoring big wins in wisconsin and what could be major setbacks for front-runners donald trump and hillary clinton. clinton now turning her eyes to the race here in new york, and uconn's women's basketball team champions once again. celebrating a huge victory. this is their fourth national title in a row. the secret behind their success coming up. >> unbelievable. and that's not the only supports headline. take a look at these two at the yankees game. you see them right there, right? dressed as teenage mutant ninja turtles and there's apparently
7:31 am
reason. >> donatello and donatello and rafael all there. a secret reason why they're wearing those costumes. who is behind that coming up. i didn't used to dress like a ninja turtle when i was a kid. >> i was going to ask you to do it again. too much information. new developments in the owen labrie case convicted of sexual assault is appealing that conviction from jail and brought in a new lawyer to lead the fight and gio benitez is here with the latest. >> reporter: that new attorney filing the appeal just about 12 hours ago and surprisie iningly takes position with his high-powered attorney saying not enough was done at trial. this morning former star student owen labrie officially appealing his convictions requesting a new trial in the 2015 prep school rape case. >> i was raped. >> reporter: in a 29-page document obtained by abc news labrie's new attorney claims the now 20-year-old's original defense team including jay carney, best known
7:32 am
representing mob boss whiteny bulger failed to challenge his felony charge of luring a minor for the purposes of sex by computer. at trial, also claiming that they failed to obtain information from his accuser's facebook account which would have been used to challenge the credibility of the allegations made against the one time harvard bound student and the motion argues labrie's lawyers failed to ensure the jury received proper instructions claiming that if they had, they would have had to find him not guilty of the felony computer charge. >> guilty. >> attorneys make mistakes and when they rise to the level of creating a constitutionally deficient performance at the trial, then the remedy is ineffective assistance of counsel and a new trial. >> reporter: this as we're learning more about his life behind bars. assigned to solitary confinement for his own safety. only able to leave his cell for
7:33 am
this after his bail was revoked last month, a judge finding he violated his curfew. his attorney telling abc news that he's now passing time reading and writing. his parents and close friends visiting regularly. >> he had to withdraw from his college courses when the judge revoked his bail. took a little bit of time for him to get books but now he's reading but that's mostly what he do, sits in his cell and read books. >> a rep for the accuser said they have not seen a copy of the filing but told us they were aware that labrie had filed a motion seeking a new trial. his original attorney jay carney has not responded to our requests for comments. >> let's talk to dan abrams about this. this is kind of a legal hail mary. >> that's right. ineffective assistance of cou counsel is an incredible high standard. you generally have to have a lawyer that was drunk or on drugs or not showing up to court to win. i mean it's really, really tough to win on that.
7:34 am
i wish my lawyer had made other strategic choices. and that's what this motion feels like. this motion feels like they're saying, well, he should have challenged this and he could have challenged these witnesses and this law should have been challenged more, et cetera. >> does it just get dismissed. >> they will reject this particular argument, but, look, he does have one issue which is the only felony that he was convicted of which is the this using a computer to lure a child for sex, they can challenge that on appeal. will they win? probably not. but they can make an argument that that law should not have applied in this particular case and that's their strongest argument. >> because he broke probation he's in jail. >> the idea before he was be out pending appeal, right? he gets to wait when the appeals are concluded, he then goes to jail assuming he loses the appeals. now these appeals could take more than a year meaning more than his sentence so he could be sitting there throughout the duration of his appeals.
7:35 am
much. >> all right, george, now to "scandal" star kerry washington calling out a major magazine this week saying "adweek" photoshopped her on its cover and not the first time it happened. eva pilgrim has more. >> reporter: good morning, amy. we all love a good filter on a picture, let 'be honest. "scandal" star kerry washington admitting she is no different but this morning calling out "adweek" for taking it a step further in what they are fans are calling a photoshop fail. in this instagram post, it felt strange to look at a picture of myself that is so different than what i look like when i look in the mirror. it's an unfortunate feeling. this is how we're used to seeing her on "scandal" as olivia pope and kruring it on the red carpet. compare that to this cover, social media quickly speculating that "adweek" mad
7:36 am
herself and more like a certain blond bombshell. it is like if scarlett johansson and kerry washington had a kid what it would look like. james cooper tweeting that the editors added volume to the hair for dramatic. no disrespect. adding kerry washington is a class act. we are honored to have her grace our pages. to clarify, we made minimal adjustments solely for the cover's design needs. this just the latest in a series of photoshop cover issues for the star. first it was "lucky" and then this "instyle" cover which sparked a firestorm debate. accusations they lightened her skin and may have changed her nose and lips while washington instagramed, i have to be honest, i was taken aback by a cover. she also added that she hopes her fans will pick it up because these happy with what is inside the magazine saying "i'm proud of the article." and it is what's insid
7:37 am
really counts. washington goes on to say she really does like some of the pictures inside. the magazine she was just surprised a little by the cover. >> she did look more like scarlett johansson. crazy. >> her fans were crazy on twitter about it. i mean, they did not let loose. >> all right, eva, thank you so much. coming up next, millions tuning in for the "the people v. o.j. simpson" finale. that, spaing new project, the fallout from the big project next. a look at the hottest new apps 60 million teens are using called and driving some parents crazy. just like my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. and i was worried about joint damage. my doctor said joint pain from ra can be a sign of existing joint damage that could only get worse. he prescribed enbrel to help relieve pain and help stop further damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal,

7:40 am
i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be fe-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. being a non-smoker feels great. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.

hundred years ago with the movie to life and it's pretty spectacular what the artists are able to achieve. >> what does it mean to bring it to life in modern terms? we have one live action kid and everything else around it is created by artists and computers. so all the animals are either motion captured or hand animated. the backgrounds are generated so the sets weren't much different than what we have right here. >> it looks so real when it's happening. so many big stars in it, as well including idris elba and ben kingsley and heard bill murray. >> yeah. >> you got to tell the story about getting bill murray to do a job. famously unavailable. >> have you ever had him here? >> no. >> he's not easy -- not like you call an agent or publicist. he runs his own business. you get ahold of him. he reaches out to you and moves around quite a bit and i sent him letters and artwok. i've been wanting to work with the guy. an idol of mine since i was little and i remember in "meatballs" how cool the

8:46 am
on. super big fans and so excited to the jung sung-ryong. we have a question for you about your background. we were wondering what is the role or the opportunity that got away? >> well, as an actor, unfortunately those people out there who know you auditioned for hundreds of things so a lot of them got away. but for directing what happens is sometimes you develop projects and they don't get made. sometimes they get made later. there was one called "magic kingdom" i was developing with disney about disneyland coming to life and putting together artwork and scripts and that one didn't get made. but by meeting everybody over at disney "the jungle book" opportunity came up so sometimes what you think is a missed opportunity turns into a different opportunity and also you never know. maybe those s cop up again but that was a project i really wanted to do that i haven't had the opportunity to do but maybe in the future. >> could come back. thank you, courtney. you're making this one. you do -- you act in this, as well.
