In giving this historic evening the coverage it deserves, ABC News underscores its ongoing commitment to providing political reporting and analysis more comprehensive and insightful than anyone else can provide," said ABC News President David Westin.

"Nightline" will air at 11:35 p.m., PT (and only in the Pacific Time Zone). Terry Moran and Cynthia McFadden will anchor this special edition from New York and Los Angeles with reports from ABC News correspondents across the February 5th Super Tuesday states.
