is built on bigotry." marco rubio... trying to hold on two weeks 'til the vote in florida ...called trump unelectable and democrat hillary clinton slammed trump s/ hillary clinton / presidential candidate 1:08-1:13 "im going to continue to speak out against bigotry where ever i see it or hear about it" like trump, clinton could win every super tuesday state but one vermont, where bernie sanders hopes for a big turnout in other liberal states s/ sen. bernie sanders / presidential candidate 1:22-1:24 "if not there's not we're probably going to be struggling." like ted cruz, if he loses texas. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news, houston, texas. it's not all about wins and losses tonight. there are points for second place. geography, organization and momentum could all play roles in how super tuesday turns out. political director dave price looks deeper at the math. for the democrats... super tuesday...means super pressure for bernie sanders. he got throttled in south carolina after winning big in new hampshire. two person race superdelegates, the party vips behind clinton he has to have a good night where will that happen? look northeast...obviousl y vermont, and massachusetts
4:07 pm
delegates for vermont 116 for mass lets move west....minnesota and colorado...both are caucuses...reward enthusiasm...sander s feels like he could do well there. sanders almost beat highly organized clinton in iowa polls make it challenging to see how those two states could go... minnesota 93 delegates, colorado 79 delegates slide down to oklahoma...might be sanders best chance looking south. 42 delegates...sanders barely up there in the polls... now, hillary clinton strength in the south...much stronger with african americans arkansas, tennessee, alabama, georgia and virginia. heavier african american populations. does well with them as a whole. looks like shell do well in all of those states arkansas...37 delegates tennessee, 76 delegates alabama...60 delegates georgia...116 delegates virginia...110 delegates if those hold true, clinton easily gets twice the delegates sanders how those close states go now texas...always bigger in texas by far...the most delegates...252!
4:08 pm
could run up the totals there. probably wont finish him off for good. sanders raised 42 million bucks last month. hes isnt going away yet. republicans...texas, texas, texas. 155 delegates is by far most anywhere senator ted cruz from there...campaigning there in final day. not a good sign but unless he gets more than half the votes, he has to split delegates. unlikely not good. he could win state, still not gain much on trump. if he loses, might be over. how move on, how raise money, if you cant even win your own state cruz is leading polls in arkansas. arkansas 40 republican delegates 50% winner take all otherwise, largely need 15% to get delegates again, cruz...even with a win...and he really needs win...doesnt gain a lot on trump. by the way...this is just want that south wanted...more diverse populations... wanted to go sooner in the process
4:09 pm
lets look at the rest of this so- called sec primary...a take on college footballs southeastern conference... heavy evangelicals...suppo sed to be cruzs strength...although he didnt carry them in south carolina. alabama 50 republican delegates can win all delegates with 50% in state or in congressional districts otherwise, need 20% to earn delegates. georgia;76 republican delegates 50% winner take all otherwise, largely need 20% tennessee ;58 republicans 67% winner take all otherwise, largely 20% trump up big in all those states...hard to alabama he may make it close to that magic 50 percent threshhold bounce up to minnesota... only place where marco rubio favored. could finally win a state. democrats seem to fear him most in an eventual head to head matchup with hillary clinton minnesota...38 delegates its a caucus delegates awarded based on state total and each congressional districts so rubio has to split delegates i realize i havent even mentioned john kasich and ben carson. but in all states but virginia...candidates have to earn at least 10% to earn any delegates. kasich and carson may be big afterthoughts... super tuesday...if you like donald trump and hillary clinton...could truly be a super night. nbc news will have a special one ur report on the superesday rusartinane o-o here onchannel 13. 'll keep y date on sults tonight on the news at ten as well.

the week ... erin and sonya are kung-fu- fighting. news at four front door the u-s house judiciary committee is weighing into the privacy fight between the government and apple. a california judge has ordered apple to help the government hack a terrorist's locked iphone. the question lawmakers want to know: will that have far-reaching privacy effects for all phone owners? brian mooar has the story from washington. on capitol hill ... the fbi versus apple - with phone encryption on the line and congress playing referee. "until this, there was no closet in america, no safe in america, no garage in america, no basement in america that was not that could not be entered with a judge's order." fbi director james comey says apple's new encryption is so powerful - only the company can help it hack the iphone of san bernardino terrorist syed farook. but he acknowledges what the government previously denied: this fight is about far more than just one phone. goodlatte: "if the fbi is
4:39 pm
to unlock this phone, that won't really be a one-time request, correct?" comey: "well, the issue of locked phones, certainly not." apple says everyone's privacy is at stake. "building that software tool would not affect just one iphone. it would weaken the security for all of them. for lawmakers - it's no easy choice. "the big question for our country is, how much privacy are we going to give up in the name of security." gowdy: "the right to counsel, the right to free speech, the right to a jury trial just isn't of much use if you're dead." just yesterday ... a federal magistrate sided with apple in a similar case in new york - ruling there's no law forcing apple to hack a locked phone.
4:40 pm
that new york case won't affect the california ruling - but it shows that the fight between apple and the government is far from over. the only question is whether the war of wills will be settled by congress or the supreme court. after 365 days floating around the international space station, scott kelly will finally feel gravity again tonight. the nasa astronaut is ending his record setting run in orbit tonight when he and a russian cosmonaut return to earth. this morning kelly tweeted out these pictures. they are of his final sunset aboard the space station. kelly has made more than ten-thousand orbits of the earth in the last year. the old wives tale won't hold true this year ... the girls state tournament is the old wives tale won't hold true this year ... the girls
