older daughter to be so adventurous that she would be hiking in the mountains out of cell service range when the president called. >> garland joined the federal appeals court in 1997. he is considered a moderate liberal who builds consensus. before becoming a judge, he spent much of his life in public service. his tenure at the justice department was defining. he supervietzed the prosecution of the 1995 oklahoma city bombing. >> we promised that we would find the perpetrators that we would bring them to justice and that we would do it in a way that honored the constitution. >> he says that's at the core of his believes. >> fidelity to the constitution and the law has been the cornerstone of my professional life. if the senate sees fit to confer to the position for which i have been nominated today i prop is to continue on that course.

cbs overnight news will be right well the presidential election overshadows the supreme court battle. last night. republican front-runner donald trump won at least three more contests. the states in orange are trumps wins to date. blue, are ted cruz. two term governor. john kasich won his first only
his home state ohio. but apparently, the show-me state, missouri, didn't see enough last night. they cast 1.5 million votes. both trump and cruz and clinton and sanders are separated by less than 2,000 votes each. too close for an official result yet. even so, cbs news estimates that trump now has more than half the delegates he need for the nomination. here's major garrett. this was an amazing evening. >> reporter: the swing state split decision witled the field to three candidates. >> while we are on the right side this year. we will not be on the winning side. >> reporter: after losing in his home state. marco rubio dropped out. trump is on pace to win. ted cruz and john kasich said they will fight for delegates to the end. >> only two campaigns have a plausible path to the nomination.
nobody else has any mathematical possibility whatsoever. >> it is unlikely that anybody is going to achieve enough delegates to avoid the convention. >> the gop front-runner issued this predicts if he doesn't get the nomination at a contested convention. >> i don't think you can say that we don't get it automatically. i think you would have riots. i think you would have riots. >> reporter: this morning, former house speaker john boehner floated another idea. draft current speaker, paul ryan. his spokeswoman shot that down quickly saying he will not accept a nomination. and republican national committee chairman rechlt ince preibus told us. >> there isn't going to be a game played where some one goes into the convention with majority of delegates and some how now that person is not the nominee. i dent see that happening. >> reporter: delegates are bound to their candidates for the first ballot. preidus acknowledged the party can rewrite the rules at its
>> i can imagine that the nomination rules would have to be looked at. obviously. second, third ballot type rules. you wouldn't have contemplated in the last convention. >> the now three-man race was headed for a primetime debate monday. trump and kasich pulled out forcing its cancellation. scott, that debate was to occur the night before contests in utah and arizona. with 98 delegates at stake. >> major garrett, thank you. you probably remember the tense moment saturday when a man rushed donald trump. well today that man, thomas demassimo was charged with a federal crime, entering a secret service restricted area. now to the democrats, hillary clinton won at least four more states last night. she now has nearly 2/3 of the delegates she need for the nomination. here is nancy cordes. >> thank you, florida! thank you, north carolina! thank you ohio! >> clinton had more thanking to
expected. she swept four states by as much as 31 points. a feat sanders did not acknowledge at his rally. >> next week, arizona has a very important election. we will win. >> reporter: in a statement the vermont senator insisted he is still on a path to win the nomination. and that the primary calendar favors us in the weeks and months to come. but, that's also what he said before last night's blowout. >> in a memo today, the clinton campaign laid out the odds against sanders. nearly half of the remaining pledge delegates are in just three states. california, new york, and pennsylvania. senator sanders would have to win them by 20 points. and rack up a string of victories just to pull even. in short they argued, clinton's delegate lead is nearly insurmountable.
securing the democratic party nomination and winning this election in november! >> the clinton camp knows there is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. they say they will not be calling on sanders to drop out but it is his decision. scott when she faced a similar choice in 2008, clinton stays in all the way to the end. >> nancy cordes, thanks. now with confidence and not a hint of arrogance we'll turn to john dickerson, our cbs news political director and anchor of "face the nation." >> trump lost a big one in ohio last night. how damaging was that? >> well not winning the 66 delegates mean trump has to do better in the future. before last night he had won 44% of the delegates now. he need to win 52% of the remaining delegates. up for grabs. but, rules in later contests give winners a greater share of the delegates. that will help him and there was evidence last night,
he got 48% of the vote, that his results improve as the field shrinks. so he has shown capacity to do better in the future. >> now if republicans wanted to deny trump the nomination is there a way they could do that in the coming contests? >> they have to win enough delegates to deny him the majority of delegates. that means beating him outright in the state's where they are winner take all. he may be weaker, montana, nebraska, south dakota. in the states where he is strong. that distribute delegates proportional. they have to come in close second to shrink the delegate prize. that is going to be hard to do. kasich and cruz, keep splitting the nontrump vote. >> maurko rubio dropped out last night. the face of the new republican party. hispanic, young, what happened. >> he was selling the wrong product. that youth, that outreach expan tugs new voters and that optimism. it was a year when voters wanted a champion for their anger. and also, his greatest
a comprehensive immigration reform bill, that's part of what had stirred up that voter anger in the first place. >> john dickerson, we'll be watching you sunday on "face the nation." john, thanks. today north korea sentenced a university of virginia student to 15 years of hard labor for what amounts to a college prank. otto warmbill. er arrested in january for stealing a propaganda banner while visiting with a tour group. the sentence came one day after president obama approved new sanctions against north korea for recent missile launch and nuclear test. the "cbs overnight news" will be
