mission or cover for a missile test? tonight, the white house with a strong warning. and -- >> -- everyone was asking questions. oh, what happened? what did you do, jeremy? >> shepard: he grabbed the wheel when the bus driver had a heart attack. >> his eyes were bulling and he was twitching in the chair. glent, to the 13-year-old hero who saved everybody on the bus. but, first from fox this tuesday night, rick santorum is out, and mitt romney is apparently on his way to wrapping up the republic nomination. our delegate counters say it's now mathematically improbable for anybody to beat him. but rick santorum certainly made it interesting. he came out of nowhere from the single dittle digits to win 11 states. he was vowing to fight all the way to the convention in tampa. but he was also facing the possibility of losing in the state of pennsylvania. the state he represented in both the house and the senate.
4:02 pm
here is part of the ad that the romney campaign was about to drop on him. >> rick santorum lost his home county by 30 points. >> he lost across the board with voters. among democrats and independence, men and women, blacks and white, young and old, rich and poor. >> we fired him as senator, why promote him to president? >> shepard: the romney camped asked television stations to pull that ad why santorum's 3-year-old daughter bella was in the hospital over the weekend. santorum says that she is back home tonight and doing exceptionally well. but he says the break from the campaign trail gave the family a chance to do a little soul searching. we made the decision to get in the race at this kitchen table and against all the odds. and we made a decision over the weekend that, while this presidential race for us is over for me, and we will suspend our campaign effective today, we are not done fighting. we are going to continue to go out there and fight to make
4:03 pm
sure that we defeat president barack obama. that we win the house back and that we take the united states senate. >> shepard: so santorum is out. as for the other guys, newt gingrich and ron paul, each now claims to be the real conservative in the race. campaign carl cammeron live in washington on fox top story tonight. so, the possibility of losing pennsylvania twice in a row, that might have been part of, this huh, carl? >> it was. but really he ran out of campaign trail. for the last cup perform weeks, the santorum campaign had been arguing that his path to the nomination included not just winning pennsylvania, which they did believe that they still had a possibility of doing, even though the polls had gotten close, but that it also would require newt gingrich dropping out of the race soon and making all of his delegates available to santorum and that texas, which doesn't have its primary until the end of next may, be changed from a proportionately allocated primary and winner take all of them.
4:04 pm
it took him a couple of weeks to have texas change the rules for primary and get newt gingrich to drop out and make all of his delegates available wasn't going to harassment adding to the possibility they were going to get pounded in pennsylvania and mr. santorum decided it was time to hang it up. >> shepard: during this concession speech or whatever you want to call it today there wasn't a mention of mitt romney's name but clearly mitt romney is the big winner here. >> sure. he did commit to do anything possible or helpful to get barack obama out of the white house. that counts for something in mitt romney's favor. the big winner of this, obviously, the celebration, the congratulations are mitt romney who has essentially now a clear path to the nomination. santorum out of the way, santorum's delegates don't -- are no longer a threat. they will ultimately converge to romney. there was a whole avalanche of endorsements that came out of senators and members of the house today as soon as santorum dropped out of race. the unity rally around romney is now beginning to roar. >> shepard: carl cammeron live in washington tonight. carl, thanks very much. our 401(k)'s took the worst
4:05 pm

4:06 pm
earnings. they were a blow out quarter it. they lost money in the fourth quarter. made money in the first quarter. dow future after the close looking higher. we will probably have a good day tomorrow. >> shepard: is that the thinking? >> yes, it is the thinking. alcoa is a bellwether. very important for additional pressure. seeing increases in demand for aircraft makers, car makers. could be a good thing. >> shepard: sounds good to me after five days of losing, it's time for a win. >> absolutely. >> shepard: gerri willis, we will watch for you on the biz. >> thank you. >> shepard: government agency where employees made a video about waste are our tax dollars and got away with it has cancelled next big trip to vegas that's according to the "the washington post." remember this? ♪ because i buy everything rappers can't afford. get a top hat award. donate my vacation. love to the nation. i will never be under oig investigation. >> shepard: oh really. the trip cancellation came out of the acting head of the general services commission or

gsa offered online apology for the recent spending scandal. >> as public servants its our obligation and duty to work on behalf of the taxpayer. so, let me be clear, we are committed to doing all that we can to make this situation right and to restore trust with our client agencies and with the nation. >> shepard: as you recall, the gsa spent more than $800,000 at a 2010 conference in vegas, including $6,300 on commemorative coins and more than 3 grand on a mind reader. now, lawmakers in washington say they want the former agency chief to testify about the department's behavior. the gsa, of course, is in charge of cracking down on government waste. we learned today who won the mega millions jackpot in maryland. and, remember our friend who claimed she had the winning tickets at a mcdonald's restaurant. well now the truth can be told. plus, ever have someone steal your cell phone or did you ever lose it and worry somebody might be able to get your personal information?

4:12 pm
participants in the group, that they then called and had to wake up the third participant, told this individual that they were coming over. they thought the third participant thought that perhaps they were playing an early april fools joke on her. >> shepard: but, no, those winners will pocket $35 million each, after taxes. "the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt is here. who are these real winners, mr. hunt? >> two women, shep, one in their 20's, one in his 40s. man in his 50s. one a teacher, one a school administrator. they bought by the way a total of 60's tickets. 599 of them that got them a total of $1 in winnings and that 60th ticket brought them that life-changing cash. listen. >> one of them works two full-time jobs. another has a part-time job. and a third has two other part-time jobs. all of them indicated that
4:13 pm
they would continue and the teachers said that they all plan at this point in time to remain public school teachers. not just to complete this school year but going forward. >> so they say they will keep on teaching. the kids that they have been teaching. i guess the part-time jobs not so much anymore. >> shepard: what about the wearer of the sweet swine pork rinds hat. we miss her already. >> yes. i managed to track her down today on the phone. she wasn't looking for cameras. we had a wonderful conversation as she screamed at me down the phone. when i asked her first of all why did you ever say you had the winning ticket? she replied: i did not. you never said you had the winning ticket? she said i never said that. so, i said why did you hire an attorney? she replied: people were suing me. well, weren't they suing you because you said you had the winning ticket? she said, again, i never said that. the silver lining, of course is, that the makers of this hat, at least, sweet swine
4:14 pm
pork rinds struck the jackpot. >> shepard: didn't they, indeed? during the afternoon on "studio b," afternoon version of this talk show version. you promised you would be happening about this tonight do i want you to rap. >> yo my name is flavor boom and i own this room in my sweet swine pork rinds hat with a little piggy on my head, i'm rolling fat. with a ph. what if 50. -- what up 50. >> shepard: never say we don't blaze new trails here. good god, mom, i'm sorry. next time somebody steals -- did that just happen? >> i believe it did. it's been nice knowing you. >> shepard: not so much. the next time somebody steals your cell phone or you leave it on a table somewhere, the government would like to jump in and help you out. lawmakers say and the feds say they have teamed up with police in several big cities to start a data base of lost and stolen phones. when a phone is stolen, the
4:15 pm
data base will alert major carriers, verls, at&t, sprint and t mobile and sweet swine, why not. those companies would disable your phones: it's become too easy for criminals to snatch phones and then turn around and sell those phones. the feds say roughly one out of every three robberies last year involved a cell phone. the man who says he shot and killed the unarmed central florida teenager trayvon martin has gone off the grid. >> he has not returned phone calls or text messages or emails. leading me to believe that i can't go forward, speaking to the public about george zimmerman in this case. >> shepard: coming up, why that now former attorney and his colleagues say they are worried about george zimmerman. plus, he is definitely not old enough to drive a car. so how does this 7th grader handle that. one man's brave decision that may have saved a lot of lives.

4:20 pm
he said last month that syria's president had agreed to the plan. today annan said he is not giving up on it. george zimmerman has left the state of florida. that's the word from his attorneys. actually, now former attorneys. they say they lost all contact with the self-appointed neighborhood watch captain on sunday and that now they are off the case. one of those lawyers says that constant media coverage has clearly taken a toll on this man, the shooter. >> george can't go down to the 7/11 and buy a diet coke. there is a bounty out on his head. whether it's believed to be a real bounty or not, it's out there. he probably watches more of this every day than he should. is he largely alone. whether that means he is absolutely alone or not, is he at least emotionally alone. you might even say emotionally crippled by virtue of the pressure of this case. >> shepard: we get that word just one day after the shooter, george zimmerman apparently set up his own web site requesting donations. the attorneys say they were planning to help him prepare a site but once he quit
4:21 pm
contacting them, he launched it on his own. of course, the shooter says he shot the unarmed teenager travon martin in february. controversial stand your ground law. now we know the shooter contacted the special prosecutor who will decide whether to charge him with a crime. and he called sean hannity, too. phil keating is live in sanford, florida, just outside orlando tonight. does anybody know where george zimmerman is? >> shep, possibly his father or brother, but it's really truly a mystery. he has definitely gone under ground, not answering phone calls or returning phone calls made to him. at least that's how his suddenly former attorneys put it but apparently george zimmerman did make one phone call today. that directly to the special prosecutor who is deciding whether to criminally charge him. >> we heard today that george had contacted the prosecutor's office directly, one of the
4:22 pm
things every defense attorney tells his client is don't talk to the prosecutors, don't talk to the cops. frankly, don't talk to anybody until we get control of the situation and do it through counsel. >> without a doubt, a very bizarre development in this case. however, his attorneys say if george zimmerman does resurface, they will rerepresent him. but they do admit and maintain to the media they still believe he is innocent of any criminal charges. >> shepard: then there is the family of the dead child. are they speaking out after all of this? >> i spoke with them today. they are very disturbed tonight about this completely unexpected development. they released a very short statement and i will quote here: the family is deeply concerned that george zimmerman is currently unaccounted for. they are worried that he could pose a flight risk if he does indeed face charges in the murder of trayvon martin. and that is the big news that trayvon martin's parents
4:23 pm
thought may come today but like everyone else they are clueless as to when that charging decision is coming. >> we are on pins and needles but we are waiting patiently. we are hopeful that we will get a call very soon, that she will meet with us and tell us what her decision is. so we really don't know. we are being patient and we are staying prayful. >> keep in mind, zimmerman has not been charged with a crime. he stands behind the stand your ground law. he could be anywhere in the state of florida or anywhere in the country. he is not has been a flight risk or deny determined to be so by a court. what we can say for certain tonight he has absolutely no legal representation. shep? >> shepard: phil keating live in central florida tonight. thanks. as i mentioned, sean hannity spoke with george zimmerman the shooter. so what did they say? well, hannity's staff won't tell us. but i am told that he will address the story tonight 9:00 eastern, 8:00 central time on hannity here on fox news channel.

4:30 pm
to save a stranded dolphin. look at this. we're told a father and daughter were boating near jacksonville when they spotted a dolphin flamg around on a sandbar and the tide was heading out quickly. the dad had recently seen a video of a dolphin rescue he thought he knew just what to do. the 72-year-old daughter got out grabbed the animal by the tail and managed to drag it safely into deeper water. i'm shepard smith. this is "the fox report." it's the bottom of the hour, time for the top of the news. president obama says it is just not fair for millionaires and billionaires to pay lower tax rates than anyone else. is he pushing again for the so-called buffet rule. remember the billionaire warren buffet wrote a column saying it was wrong for his secretary to pay a high higher tax rate than he does. >> i told you where i stand. it's not time for members of congress to tell you where they stand.
4:31 pm
>> shepard: the president has also been calling for ending the so-called bush tax cuts for the richest americans, and today we saw a rare public response from former president bush himself. that tops the news at the bottom of the hour. wendell goler has it live at the white house. what did the former president have to say on this matter, wendell? >> well, shep, the former president was speaking at a tax conference sponsored by his foundation, the bush institute. he warned against rolling back the upper income tax cuts that passed in his administration. and then said they would have a better chance if they weren't named after him. >> and if the goal is private sector growth, you have got to recognize that the best way to create that growth is to leave capital in the treasuries of the job creators. secondly, if you raise taxes, in other words, if you let the -- i wish they weren't called the bush tax cuts. if they were called somebody other body's tax cuts, they are probably less likely to be raised. >> the obama administration
4:32 pm
says rolling back the upper income tax cuts is a fairness issue, not to mention one that would cut the deficit by about $40 billion a year, shepard. >> shepard: the buffet rule, wendell, what are the chances that will make it through congress. >> it has no chance of passing the republic controlled house. it might not be able to get the 60 votes republicans would surely require in the senate. but it is politically popular. mr. obama says democrats are going to force a vote in the senate to put opponents of the buffet rule on record. republicans think the only real reason for the rule is to make them make a politically painful vote, shepard. >> shepard: thanks a the lo. the race for the white house does look a lot different tonight. as we have been reporting through the this hour, rick santorum today suspended his campaign. dropped out for the republic nomination right where he started it 309 days ago in his home state of pennsylvania. >> i'm announcing today that i'm running for president of the united states.

4:35 pm
afternoon. what is the white house saying it could do? serious consequences. what's the white house saying here? >> well, the white house calls this a flagrant violation, shep, on two fronts. one a violation of u.n. security council resolutions and, two, they call it a flat out deal breaker to the agreement that north korea signed with the united states back in february. that agreement says that north korea would not launch missiles. and, in exchange, the united states would give food aid to the millions of hungry north koreans. the white house also says it will take other steps but did not articulate what those steps might be. here is secretary of state hillary clinton. >> if north korea wants a peaceful, better future for their people, it should not conduct another launch that would be a direct threat to regional security. >> we should note that russia also condemned the potential
4:36 pm
launch calling it a violation of the u.n. security council china has not yet reacted. shep? >> shepard: you know, some of the experts on this region, trace, are saying they believe iran has a hand in that what do we know? >> yeah. because they believe that iran and north korea had been involved in a joint missile program now for the better part of a decade. so, in essence, north korea would fire off the missile but iran has the vested interest in the outcome. it's very important to remember that back in 2006 and 2009, north korea tested missiles and both of those failed. here's north korea expert gordon chang. >> the north koreans make hundreds of millions of dollars a year selling ballistic missile technology to the iranians. and the iranians aren't going to buy something that doesn't work. so the north koreans need to validate their designs. >> the theory being that if north korea can prove that it can actually launch a long range missile then the stakes
4:37 pm
in the region are much higher, shep. >> shepard: hard to argue that trace gallagher in los angeles this afternoon. we got a bombshell on north korea today. a human rights group and a well-respected one, claims that north korea regime is now holding more than 150,000 people in a brutal secret prison system that they describe as goolag style. according to the group, entire families are locked up. generations of families for the so-called political crimes of just one family member. and we're told the conditions are nothing short of horrendous. torture, execution, forced abortions. forced labor and malnutrition. the group claims it has interviewed no fewer than 60 former prisoners and guards who managed to sneak out of that country and those prisoners and guards were able to locate the prison on satellite images. north korea has long denied that it holds any political prisoners. well, the confessed mastermind of the attacks of 9/11 is about to get his day in court.
