4:31 pm
he was subdued and ready to claim the g.o.p.'s coveted crown. on his way to taking seven states in the much-anticipated super tuesday showdown, donald trump waved a political rally to take his case directly to the press. his pitch, he could be the unifying voice of the g.o.p. >> i think we're going to be more inclusive, more unified. and i think we're going to be a much bigger party and i think we're going to win in november. >> but candidates cruz and rubio are not reading the script that way. >> reporter: backed by major contributors, rubio launched an ad offensive, targeting trump's awful response to the david duke endorsement and his ties to the k.k.k. >> they're going to put 20 or $25 million into it over the next two weeks, from what just came over the wires. frankly, i think that's just fine.
4:32 pm
disavowing david duke, the ads have been airing non-stop, to raise his lead. trump is shrugging off the establishment's resentment. >> if i'm coming in the worst, second in the two or three i might not win. we're a democracy. it's awful hard to say it's not the person we want to lead the party, right? >> julie: but still the republican party is very fractured. there's a good chance it could be a brokered convention despite trump winning as much as as he has. >> reporter: if he doesn't hit the 1237 delegate count, the anti-trump could rock the g.o.p. in july.
4:33 pm
florida's primary march 15th, 99 delegates. the winner takes all. rubio loses that and it's all over for rubio and trump is on his way. >> ginger: we have to wonder what romney is going to be talking about tomorrow. >> lisa: it's all about the math at this point. for a complete voter guide about information about early voting, the candidates and more, visit, powered by news 6. you'll find it right on the home page. >> julie: right now the cause of a deadly mobile home fire in polk county is under investigation. polk county sheriff's office is trying to figure out what caused the fire on old polk city road. a driver saw the flames and called 911 around 1 a.m. two bodies were found inside the home once the flames were extinguished. their identities have not been released. the state fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire. >> ginger: just in tonight, zika

4:37 pm
going to be in the upper 50's. a very mild, dry evening, still with mostly cloudy skies. the front starts to make its way in. by tomorrow, the sunshine returns and temperatures will quickly rebound back into the low 80's. the good news is we're not going to be seeing much in the way of rain for tomorrow. if you have any outdoor plans, you should be good to go. >> ginger: candace, thank you. a piece of debris believed to be from the missing malaysia airlines nice was found on the coast of mozambique. it's in the middle of africa's east coast and the west coast of australia. it's a piece of horizontal stabilizer skin, part of the aircraft's tale. it was discovered by an american tourist and a local fishermen on a sand bank in mozambique. the flight disappeared two years ago this month and is the only known missing 777. the wreckage is being transported to malaysia as part
4:38 pm
>> lisa: in just hours, the plan to get a permanent homeless shelter off the ground in daytona beach will go front and center before local lawmakers. the clock is ticking as well. come tomorrow, an offer by volusia county city councilmembers are set to expire. they're standing by their plan to offer land and $4 million, going to the construction of a new 250-bed homeless shelter west of daytona beach. but daytona beach city councilmembers want the county to spend an additional $2 million over five years for operating costs. the deadlock comes after dozens of people had to be moved into a temporary shelter after camping out in front of a county building for weeks. the meeting is tonight. we'll let you know what happens. >> julie: another big city took another step to prevent teens from smoking. san francisco boosted the legal age to buy tobacco products from 18 to 21. the city is the second largest behind new york to raise the minimum age.
4:39 pm
june. >> lisa: i just checked our facebook page. not a lot of comments on this yet but lots of people have liked this story right now. >> ginger: yeah, i guess anything to help delay kids smoking is a good thing. if you're going to smoke, you're going to do it. if it's now or later, we just wish it didn't happen. do you think florida cities should follow suit? if you want to share your opinion about this story, leave a comment on our facebook page at 6. >> julie: inspections of royal cripple -- royal caribbean's anthem of the sea. it was cut short in another voyage due to storms because of another severe weather policy. the same cruise ship last week sailed into a storm that forced passengers to stay in their rooms for about 12 hours. >> ginger: any minute now, astronaut scott kelly will fly back home to houston after an

4:41 pm
he admitted space is a harsh environment. >> for instance, having no running water. it's like i've been in the woods camping for a year. >> ginger: during his mission, he flew more than 143 million miles, made more than 5400 orbits around the earth and saw 11,000 sunrises and sunsets. along the way, he's had plenty of fun and flooded his social media with incredible pictures of our planet. now, kelly beat his closest u.s. contenders in terms of time in space by 125 days. the world record of 436 days in space was set by a russian doctor in the 1990's. >> lisa: i have to imagine he's a little jet lagged. >> ginger: you knew the press was going to be there so you can't say i don't want to talk now. he also got 2 inches taller in space. there's no gravity and his spine just stretched.
