they believe his campaign, which could not gain much traction, has finally found its footing. it is picking up the kind of momentum they believe will grow as he takes this fight on to pennsylvania and around the country. kasich enjoyed this moment, expressing love for ohio. here' s a portion of what he says his campaign is all about. mr. kasich: i look into your eyes. you want to believe, believe again we can have job security. it you want to believe that wages can rise. you want to believe that your children will have a better america than what we got from our mothers and fathers. that is the great american legacy. we put one foot in front of the other.
tonight, i will not take the low road to the highest office in the land. we can go to washington in the first 100 days, fix these problems with the shock and all agenda that can pass. i think we can rally the people in washington. before we are republicans and democrats, we are americans and we have an obligation. putting their confidence in me, principles can work. common sense can work. shifting power and money and influence from washington and moving it to where we live which empowers us, that is the direction for our country. we' ve got one more trip around ohio this coming fall, where we will become the president of the
bless you. john: that of course is an the donald trump and ted cruz. the campaign knows the heady reality of tough primaries to come. perhaps taking this all the way to the convention, where there will be a floor fight. even though there was a long way to go, kasich, it is a four letter win. ohio. mike: he did get the endorsement of the ohio coach. you have been covering politics. it is a victory, but it is his first primary victory. there was a lot of talk that this could help donald trump he
gop candidates, ted cruz and kasich stealing from one another. do think the trump train can be derailed? john: most pundits believe what casey did tonight increases the chances of that happening. having said that, there is a long way to go in this thing. there is a heady feeling, a feeling of confidence on the kasich campaign. this is a pragmatic and realistic campaign. they understand there was a tough road ahead. john kasich himself has said, when you look at the map of the delegates, he doesn' t think he is going to get there in terms of getting enough delegates to get the nomination. he knows he has to open this up on the floor of the convention and it has to be a brokered convention. you have donald trump, ted cruz and now john kasich.
continue was to win for tonight and he did it. sheree: john live outside cleveland. thank you. mike: the stuff crashing down. despite a push from donald trump in ohio it wasn' t enough to get the win tonight. sheree: wlwt news 5' s todd dykes is covering trump' s campaign for us. a very good night for trump this evening. reporter: despite losing ohio donald trump continues to add to , his delegate lead. the billionaire businessman routed marco rubio in florida and also picked up wins in north carolina and illinois. but the key victory came in the sunshine state because it was a winner take-all delegate haul among the gop candidates. that means trump gained an additional 99 delegates in florida. now he' s trying to cross a key threshold by claiming more than 50% of the overall delegate count on the republican side. here' s what trump told supporters who gathered for a
owns in palm beach, florida. mr. trump: i just want to congratulate everybody. this is a very interesting process. it is very tough, but by the end , if you get to the end, you can handle a lot of things including pressure. lies, deceit, viciousness. disgusting reporters. horrible people. someone i. -- some are nice. back there. are going to go forward and we are going we are going to win for the country. we are not stopping. we are going to have great victories for our country. thank you very much. reporter: trump mentioned marco rubio in his speech tonight but he did not say anything about john kasich. many months ago, few people would of thought he would have to win so -- fight so hard to
party leaders may look to kasich as their final chance to rally behind a candidate who might be able to challenge trump if there' s a contested convention. that' s a big if since there' s a long way to go before the convention begins in cleveland in july. todd dykes, wlwt news 5. mike: todd mentioned marco rubio. it was the end of the line. he suspended his campaign, telling a crowd in miami tonight, that there is a hunger for new faces and voices in government. sheree: 99 delegates. it is a winner take all. ohio governor john kasich will walk away with all 66 delegates. on the democratic side, hillary clinton put some distance between herself and bernie sanders. mike: she took the majority vote in the buckeye state. wlwt news 5' s courtis fuller is here with more on the
candidates. courtis: this is a big night for hillary clinton. the numbers adding up, the number needed to clinch the nomination. she won in ohio, florida and north carolina. still too close to call in missouri and her home state of illinois. when she was giving her victory speech, there was a little extra confident. she said there was a difference between running for president and being president. after losing michigan, this was the rebounded night she needed. there was a sense in her speech that she was pivoting beyond the primary contest, turning more of her attention to the general election. ms. clinton: this may be one of
campaigns of our lifetimes. the next president will walk in and start making decisions that will affect the lives and livelihood of everyone in this country. indeed, everyone on this planet. now i know, i know easy decisions don' t make it to the president' s desk. i saw president obama wrestled with decisions to send navy seals after osama bin laden. industry. fight for the affordable care act and so many more. and our next president has tests. first, can you make positive
second, can you keep us safe? third, can you ring our country together again? courtis: meanwhile listening to t , sound like he was going despite the anywhere anytime soon loss in three states. he got his to jump off -- message across. he said there is a rigged and a corrupt campaign finace system although the message has resonated with a larrge segment of democrats, it is falling flat with the real numbers at the polls. for the democrats in ohio the delegates are split proportionally, based on today' s vote. so mrs. clinton will get more of the 143 delegates ohio has to offer. sheree: i want to give you a look again. curtis was talking about it.
the nominee needs 1237. trump at 619. cr uz with 394. rubio, no longer matters because he has suspended his campaign. john kasich, after and gaining 66 delegates, he stands at 136. as for the democratic party, the nominee needs to 383 -- 2383. senator sanders with 484. you can get the results on a website. we haven' t broken down into statewide races.

that was a divided thing. it was an honor for our district to have the speaker of the house someone that served so long but , i think people are also anxious to have somebody that maybe hasn' t been in washington so long, that' s more immediately coming from the experience in the district and i think that' s something i offer, kind of a different sort of experience. the standard path is local government, state government and on to dc and my background' s a little different than that. karen -- karin: bill beagle of tipp city who was endorsed by sheriff richard jones took third place in the district. mike: both republicans and democrats face contested races for u.s. senate in today' s ohio primary. sheree: incumbent senator rob portman has been declared as the winner on the republican side. political veteran ted strickland will be facing portman in november. beating out cincinnati
