BREAKING: Romney wins 6 states including Ohio, Massachusetts; President Obama arrives in Charlotte this morning; Armed robbery at Gardner-Webb

Good morning! It's Wednesday, March 7. This is Christine Nelson with a quick heads up for you on what we're covering on WBTV News This Morning at 4:30 a.m.

BREAKING: In the last hour or so, GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney was able to claim his 6th Super Tuesday victory. He just won the Alaska caucuses among other key states. We'll break down the election scorecard and see whether these results will cause other candidates to drop out of the race.

We are hours away from President Obama's arrival in Charlotte. All eyes will be on his visit here as he makes his economy speech in Mt. Holly. WBTV's Kristen Hampton will be first out of the gate to bring you complete coverage.

Plus... a frightening robbery at Gardner-Webb University. We'll tell you what happened after armed men stormed one of the dorms!

Your first alert weather forecast and traffic updates are every 10 minutes. We have the most reliable coverage in the morning!

See you on the air,

Christine
