4:21 pm
it narrows the feel. we learned that carly fiorina suspended her campaign and it gibbs voters a narrower field of choices and may help to try to carve out who is in the outsider lane opposite donald trump of course, who is holding that ground evangelical lane ted cruz has had and traditional republican fight is where there's a lot of action and unknowns. >> kelly o'donnell, thanks from trenton. more on nbc "nightly news." appreciate it. irs says thieves are trying to steal tax returns. >> still ahead -- how you'll know if your refund was targeted. twitter tweets, the changes you could see on your time line. plus -- blame the boss. the note a father sent to class with his tardy children and his explanation why his kids didn't make it on time. ♪ let it go
