ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump dismissed on Wednesday (March 9) questions from the media that tied his supporters' pledges to vote for him to the Nazi Germany salute. Speaking at a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Trump told the crowd that at a recent campaign event, he had directed his supporters to raise their hand and pledge to vote for him in order to prove right then and there that they loved him. "We got a call like two nights later, 'does that have anything to do with Nazi Germany?' I said, are these people crazy," Trump told supporters in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Trump remains the front-runner for Republicans in the presidential race. He has 446 delegates, with Senator Ted Cruz of Texas second with 347 delegates, according to The New York Times. Trump could open a sizable delegate lead going into July's Republican Party nominating convention if he is able to win next Tuesday in Florida, Ohio, or Illinois, states that allot all their delegates to the winner.
