thanks for staying with us for the news at 11:00. i'm matt ackland. >> and i'm lauren demarco. we begin tonight with the race for the white house. >> clinton was victorious defeating bernie sanders in the nevada caucus while trump was declared the winner. alexandra limon has been following all the developments. >> that's right. two headlines came out of south carolina tonight. not only did trump win by a large margin, but only half the precincts were reporting and it became evident that bush was not doing well and he was dropping out of the race. >> mrk is a country that thinks big, acts boldly and leads without apology. it will be up to the next president to restore that kind of leadership. but the people of iowa and new hampshire and south carolina have spoken and i really respect their decision. so tonight i am
campaign. yeah, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] >> i've been saying: make america great again, and it's going to be greater than ever before. that's the kind of potential we have. greater than ever before. so i want to thank everybody. i love you all. again, south carolina, we will never forget you. we will never forget you. we will never, ever forget south carolina. >> these results of the gop primary in south carolina seem to be a clear reminder of the anti-establishment sentiment voters have. the reason south carolina ended with donald trump leading the pack by more than 10% margin over marco rubio and ted cruz who are in a very tight race for second place,
than 1 percentage point at last count. and this primary proved enough to narrow the republican field squeezing jeb bush out of the race all together. meanwhile in nevada, hillary clinton made a comeback beating out bernie sanders in today's caucus. something many feel was a crucial jolt needed in her campaign after she lost to sanders in new hampshire. clinton took in about 52% of the vote and sanders came in with about 47%. clinton's victory is credited in large part to her latino support base in that state. in his concession speech sanders addressed his hopes for super tuesday. >> we are bringing working people and young people into the political process in a way we have not seen for a very long time. [ cheers and applause ] i
on super tuesday, we have got an excellent chance to win many of those things. [ cheers and applause ] >> it's clear, there is so much more to be done. the truth is, we aren't a single-issue country. [ cheers and applause ] i am on my way to texas. i'm on my way to texas. bill is on his way to colorado. the fight goes on! the future that we want is win our grasp. thank you all! god bless you! >> while clinton's victory was not a land slide by any means, it was obvious you could see it in her speech that it invigorated her as well as her supporters, though it will be interesting to see what happens in this two-person race on the dem side moving forward. >> yeah. and on the republican side you've got cruz and rubio up against trump.
them drops out all of the voters come to one side. but you know that's not going to happen. so it's interesting how this is all playing out. >> we'll have to wait and see. >> didn't everybody think jeb bush was going to be the shoe-in. he had all the money and now he's out tonight. alex, thank you. appreciate it. looking ahead to what's next on the road to the white house. democrats will choose their presidential candidate in south carolina next saturday. polls show hillary clinton with a lead over bernie sanders there and then the calendar turns to march and super tuesday. boy, that's close. 13 states will hold contests on march 1st including virginia. >> the power of fox 5 news and the hill are coming together to track the race for the most powerful position in the world, president of the united states. join the hill's editor in chief bob kusack and ronica cleary for

>> you can stay in tomorrow and have some bread and some cheese and some wine and it's going to be a rainy wet day tomorrow so you might want to do that. anyway, matt, i have to concentrate on my weather. clouds tonight and dry tonight. we've got a frontal system and that frontal system is going to bring to us some wet weather as we move into tomorrow. take a look right now. dry conditions just some clouds. not a whole lot to be too concerned with. temperature wise we're going to see things change all over the place. we've got a wet sunday ahead for you. temps are going to be tipping again and next week we've got two storm systems totally complicated trying to figure it all out. we're talking from tuesday to thursday. look at the temperatures for today. highs well above the seasonal average. it pelt like a wonderful spring day outside. our temperatures now 52 at
capital. 58 at hagerstown, and 53 at martinsburg. 24-hour temperature change, this is comparing what it was like yesterday at this time compared to today, 18 degrees warmer at quantico, 9 at dc, 14 at leonardtown. so tomorrow's highs are not going to be quite in the upper 60s but we could hit a few lower 60s but i'm kind of going more to the mid 50s to maybe a couple of upper 50s or so. that's because we've got this frontal system to deal with. this is going to sink its way to the south and along it we're going to see some showers develop. so tomorrow make sure you keep your umbrella handy if you're heading out. not a straight, heavy steady rainfall throughout the day. you'll see a little bit in the morning, a little bit of a break and start again, there will be some pocket
so just be prepared for that. this is 8:00 in the morning. you can see over the far west and as we progress, 8:00 in the morning and lech:00 in the morning it starts to move its way in. the yellow is some heavier rainfall that will hit us and it continues through until about 3:00, still a few little light showers continue. the 6:00 hour we still have some over the northwest and a sprinkle or two and it hits all over again. behind all that, woons we get into the tuesday-thursday period, that's when we start to keep an eye on two systems. the first low pressure system here to the south will start to head its way up. the question is with this cold air in place, will it get out of the way will it kind of linger. if it lingers we can see a bit of a wintry mix before we get some rainfall. the second system is stronger and we're looking at this one being more of a rain event and we'll see that colder air but at that point looks like it will be out of the way. we don't want any more winter weather.
skies with light winds and for tomorrow, your high is 56 degrees. it's umbrella weather. remember i told you that. a few showers here and there throughout the day and tuesday-wednesday-thursday period we're going to watch those systems and we'll be able to get a bit more pin point on that for you. >> sounds good. >> stay tuned.
>> the caps down 1-0 but not for long. alex ovechkin scores his 38th goal of the season. the second period caps down a goal. they get lucky. 4 minutes to go. 3-3, the pass to brooks, the caps win 4-3. >> today marked the first big day at nationals spring training. can you believe it's almost here? it's all happening in viera florida, pit
held their first workout together. others report a little later this week for the first full squad workout it's scheduled on thursday. the first spring training game takes place march 2nd against the tampa bay rays. >> today chase elliot held off joey lagano to win the first race. tomorrow elliot will be on the poll for the daytona 500. coverage begins at noon. that was it they gave it to us pretty easy here at 11:00. we're going to get a final check of your weather.
here's a look at your 7-day forecast. sunday is going to be night quite as warm as today but weigh have some rain too deal with so just be aware. and by monday we're back to some dry conditions. keeping an eye on two systems that are going to bring us a couple of storms as we head into the tuesday-thursday period. however, right now it looks like it will be more of a rain event than anything else and we're keeping our fingers crossed on that. we don't want any more snow. >> we've had the snow quota. >> i will take rain over any 30 degrees on there. >> we'll see you tomorrow. >> good night.
