6:00 am
both candidates scoring big on super tuesday. donald trump has the most delegates followed by ted cruz and marco rubio third by a long shot. >> we have done something that almost nobody thought could be done. and i'm very proud of it. and i just want to leave with you this. i am a unifier. i would love to see the republican party and everybody get together and unify. >> as for the democrats, hillary clinton won 7 states last night. voters in alabama, arkansas, and several other states favored her over sanders but like trump she has her eyes on november. >> it's clear tonight that the stakes in this election have never been higher. and the rhetoric we're hearing on the other side has never been lower. >> whoo! >> meanwhile, bernie sanders won four states including his home state of vermont the
6:01 am
senator also swayed voters in colorado, minnesota and oklahoma. and here is the all important delegate count. hillary clinton has a significant lead over bernie sanders. the super tuesday results are starting to put both races now in a clearer light. let's chat about that. kpix 5 political analyst melissa caen joins us. so for anyone with not the last name of trump or clinton, are they done? >> don't tell them that. [ laughter ] >> miracles can happen. there is a pathway for anyone to get the nomination. but it would require a dramatic shift from what we have seen pretty consistently in the elections we have seen so far. so while there are pathways that are "possible" for these other candidates, they are not probable after last night. >> if trump gets the most delegates, is there any way
6:02 am
that some other republican candidate could get the nomination? >> there is. people don't realize, so the republican party just like the democratic party is really in complete control of the nominating process. it's not -- there's no legal requirement that whoever the public votes for becomes the party nominee. there's a lot of rules that are going to govern what happens at the convention. this is where it becomes really important. if trump can't get a majority of delegates that he needs to get the nomination at the convention, then after one round of sort of fruitless voting where nobody wins including trump, about 1,000 delegates become inbound. so folks who showed up to the convention with the requirements that they vote for donald trump don't have to anymore! at that point, when the delegates, 1,000 delegates or so become inbound, then you can broker and negotiate another person being the nominee and that person doesn't have to have been on any of the ballots. it could be paul ryan as has
6:03 am
been floated as the compromise candidate. it could be beyonce. it could be anyone. beyonce for president. >> yeah. >> and the second way they can do it is by changing the rules at the convention. prior to anybody getting any delegate getting to vote they can all agree to unbind all the delegates so releasing everyone and opening the floodgates. no one wants to do these things. it's nuclear options that would create chaos!! 1968 burned cars flipping over. but there are ways that republican party rules could thwart a trump presidency. >> it would make the convention fun to watch. >> i'm booking my ticket. >> what's next for bernie sanders? he would be three states including vermont? >> four states including vermont and that's important because he won vermont and new hampshire. he needed to show he could win outside new england. so oklahoma, minnesota and colorado victories were big. but those states don't have a
6:04 am
lot of delegates. so states with more delegates are states that hillary clinton won. so it's a denial edged sword. he won but it didn't result in the huge delegate jump he needed. the results didn't change the momentum of the race which seems to point to a hillary clinton nomination. >> thank you, melissa caen. we'll talk to you again in the next half-hour. >> thank you. we have a traffic alert out there. let's check in with gianna. >> just checked in with chp. we have some new information on this accident. southbound 280 at lawrence expressway, the left lane is opened and the center divide traffic getting by on the southbound side of 280. it is the noncommute direction. we are seeing some delays as you approach the scene but northbound starting to slow down as a result for spectator slowing. south 280 at lawrence expressway the left lane and center divide that's how traffic is getting through. delays along 101, as well. 280/680 to highway 237 looking

6:19 am
the fog because we do have a little bit of light drizzle in the north bay so a lot of low- level moisture is trapped close to the surface. 40s and 50s stepping on out. it's about 4 degrees cooler this morning than 4 hours ago. fog lifts sun will shine increasing cloud cover rain developing tonight. this is interesting. it's our satellite and radar. this is the first in a series of storms moving into the bay area. this one i refer to more as a weak disturbance. it will allow the active weather pattern to move into the bay area tanning into the atmospheric river meaning more of a subtropical feeling here in the bay area. a weak disturbance around 9 p.m. tonight in the central bay overnight. it will be raining this time

6:32 am
count. thanks to her sweep, hillary clinton now holds a significant lead over bernie sanders. as for the republicans, donald trump has well over 100 more delegates than ted cruz, marco rubio in third distantly at best. tuesday's results are creating some distant between the top candidates in both races. >> here to talk about it is kpix 5 political analyst melissa caen. >> hello. >> welcome back. this is exciting stuff. >> i'm so thrilled about this. >> i know. >> i'm so enjoying this. >> looking ahead and this is pretty far out but what would a donald trump versus hillary clinton campaign look like? >> wouldn't that be something? it's looking like that will be will happen. the first thing is there's probably going to be a third person in there. um, either michael bloomberg or even a republican establishment candidate sort of funded by the republican establishment to get in there and try to defeat trump. there's that option out there. polls have consistently shown that clinton would beat trump
6:33 am
in a head-to-head matchup. having said that and trump will tell you very quickly he hasn't even started in on hillary clinton and her campaign also has its own op research system that's robust, each campaign, clinton and trump, have a wood chipper they would put each other through and so with it's hard to know how this will play out. some polls show clinton may win. >> are we starting to hear who the vice presidents would be? >> with this recent chris christie, um, endorsement, people are speculating he might have been promised a vp spot. also sarah palin in response to her endorsement. there's also talk that she might be it. even ivanka trump a ceo with executive experience on her own side. on the democratic side so far the only real name being floated for hillary clinton is for running mate is julian castro former mayor of san antonio, texas. he is a rising star in the
6:34 am
democratic party and someone that everyone is seeing right now as being the probably number one pick for her. >> what about a third party candidate changing the game for everyone? >> it could. it could it's not even clear who that candidate would take votes away from. if it was a republican candidate even a michael bloomberg is also a republican but more moderate, are they taking away also from hillary clinton's voters who would otherwise turn out and vote for her? so we can't assume that a third party candidate is necessarily going to defeat trump. it could damage clinton's or moderate voters on the fence about hillary clinton. >> primary is coming up. should we know in a couple of weeks? >> march 15 is going to be a big day. march 15th is a day of a bunch of winner-take-all states. and so this is when you get like the 100 delegates at a time and candidates can really make headway. so by march 15, once the results of that come in, we will be in a pretty good position to call the race i
6:35 am
think. >> all right. melissa, thank you. >> thank you for having me. in the sierra, a warm dry february ate away at what had been above normal snowpack there. this is echo summit outside of lake tahoe on the south side. it's still 105% of normal for this time of the year. that's good news. but that's down from 130% from last month. that could soon change though as a series of storms approach the bay area. it will snow in the sierra. it's going to start off as rain in the high sierra and then transfer on over to snow maybe by sunday. but it's going to start off very high levels and then drop to about 3500 feet. but that's okay. any water we get out of the high sierra we'll take, right? good morning, everybody. we have a series of storms coming this way beginning with our live hi-def doppler picking up a little bit of light precipitation well to the north of us. it's just right there. i got to tell you, today is going to be sunny and dry with increasing clouds but over the next six to 10 days we'll have a wert-than-average march.
6:36 am
in fact, what does that mean? well, with the heavy rain coming, typically we see between three and five inches of rain but we are going to see more like up to 8" within the urban areas, a foot of rain expected win the coastal ranges. see that behind me there? it is our live weather camera. it's sunrise over the mount vaca area. you can see the layer of low clouds and fog right there. 40s and 50s out the door. we are about 4 degrees cooler this morning than 24 hours ago. temperatures still above average 60s and 70s. we'll track the first storm together coming up at 48 minutes after the hour. but right now here's gianna. we have a traffic alert. we have had our eye on it all morning. in fact it's still in effect on southbound 280 at the lawrence expressway. an overturned vehicle, debris clearing out of the road. southbound 280 law, lawrence right lane blocked at the lawrence expressway. significant delays on the guadalupe parkway.

6:38 am
sausalito where the marine mammal center is treating starving sea lions. what's going on? >> reporter: sounds like a big part of the reason is the warmer ocean waters we have been seeing here in the bay and up and down the california coast. so this assembly hearing today trying to find a solution. what are we going to do about this situation? now, also today, noaa, published the results of its study of the causes. a big one is el nino, the warmer ocean waters. sea lions's normal food sources are harder to come by so they are settling for lower fat less desirable food. last year, the number of sick sea lions that washed up on california beaches was 10 times the average of the -- was 10 times the average of the last decade. this year may be worse.
6:39 am
