7:05 am
they were admonished. there was not a lot of follow up. there was a lot of candidates speaking, and that was appreciated by all of the candidates and in the spin room by a lot of people working for the campaigns, what was different is they talked about issues like david shuster. minimum wage being one of them. there was a huge protest outside the arena. people protesting minimum wage. they did it in many cities. john kasich went away from the conventional wisdom of republicans of rubio and trump. here is marco rubio. >> i come from a town where if the wind blew the wrong way people found themselves out of work. economic theory is fine. but you know what, people need help. >> is that was john kasich, i said marco rubio.

7:07 am
conservative support. he may have stemmed the tide. talking about ben carson stemming the tide. he was not arrived many questions. i would say that jed bush, it was not a win like coming out of this. all of a sudden jed bush jumped off the stage. he may have stopped the bleeding. >> before we let you go. going into the debate. ben carson and trump were the frontrunners, do you see it changing? >> i don't. i don't think anything will happen that changes the dynamics of the race. ben carson got away with one. he wasn't asked about the stabbing issue, the issue of inflating his resume on west point. in a sense it was a victory not having to answer questions about that. donald trump, i don't think did anything differently. he was a little more subdued. i asked him if he thought he
7:08 am
would be hurt on his stance of immigration and minimum wage. >> are you trying to appeal to moderate voters, saying the minimum wage... >> we have to stay competitive as a country. >> how does that help your appeal. >> well, we have to stay competitive as a country. >> what we had is it donald trump worried a little about attracting moderate republicans, he is doing well at it. it may have changed with his answer on minimum wage. >> michael, thank you very much. stay with us, we'll have more on the debate throughout the morning and in about 10 minutes we'll talk about the winners and losers, and who may have bent the truth. >> and the candidates are on the campaign trail. we have a developing weather story we want to get to.

>>the fact is all i'm suggest, we can't ship 11 million out of the country. [ bell tolls ] >> it's an unbelievable company worth billions of dollars, i don't have to hear from this man, believe me john kasich and donald trump arguing for the border wall forcing undocumented immigrants out of the country. it was one of many heated moments. we saw the divisions on certain
7:19 am
issues. including immigrations and bank bailouts. i want to get more into this with a senior reporter at the center for public integrity. great to see you. what were the main takeaways for you? >> i thought we had sharp contrastses on several issues. it was billed as that. it delivered. i thought the minimum wage was one that was profound. we had candidates saying look, the minimum raise is something we could not raise. we had a kerr failing point, the governor of ohio. this is something we have to reconsider. that we did in ohio. we see the candidates, whether it's this issue or others, jockeying in the hearts and minds of moderates.

7:22 am
they have to destroy the cal fate. he says that we could do that easily. destroy the cal fate. how much does it matter in that ben carson lacks credentials, and others lacking in other areas. this is an issue for ben carson, not just talking about foreign policy. but that this is the first time he's running, he doesn't have governmental experience. that's wildly appealing to many people. you have plenty of republicans looking far on alternative to a tried and true commission. we are three months away from the new hampshire priority. there's plenty of time for voters to vet credentials.
7:23 am
polls are fleeting. if you are up coulded, you could be down tomorrow. >> dave levinthal, thank you for your insights. >> that dangerous world, afghanistan, thousands of afghan on the streets of kabul after i.s.i.l. linked fighters slaugdered seven people. women and children among them. jennifer glass is there for us. tell us about the mood of the day and new? >> well, it's the biggest protest we have seen in afghanistan. and the people are angry, not just about the deaths of those seven that were brutally killed. they blamed the deaths on the government. saying they are not controlling the situation well. >> people were conducted and

7:45 am
energy will merge with what we have in the midsection of the country. look at thursday, another round comes in and friday, more of the rain. the combination, if you add it all together, we could have widespread places looking at over a foot of rain. there's definitely some still dry areas in this portion of the country, but that, too is something we're going to have to monitor for potential flooding the next do you days. >> california bracing for a winter they say could bring disaster, epic rain and floods are predicted. bridges and dams and levees could be at risk. >> this is what five inches of rain in a single hour does to a drought baked hillside, but that's nothing compared to what may help this winter if an epic el niño arrives. >> take those small events and have it rain longer, what will give you an image which how things could go badly. >> geologies jeff mount is an

7:48 am
blame. it's decades of neglect of california's infrastructure. >> we stopped paying for this stuff a long time ago. why should we be shocked? we have the nerve to be surprised that these systems are falling down around our ears, bridges failing, roadways failing. we chose not to pay for it. >> the truth is that california and the nation will pay one way or another. the question is whether the bill comes due this winter. jacob ward, al jazeera, sacramento. >> break out your credit cards, we are talking about an on line shopping bonanza. >> surging sales pushed the biggest internet buying day into record territory. >> an appetite for change. we'll take a look at what caused an american icon to rethink its recipes.

8:05 am
things but kept the tone down. they opened with minimum wage and a lot of eyebrows were raised when donald trump was asked about minimum wage. >> taxes to high, wages too high, we are not going to be able to compete against the world. i hate to say it, but we have to leave it the way it is. people have to go out, they have to work really hard and they have to get into that upper stratum. >> trump is trying to appeal to moderate republicans and needs to veer away from statements like he made on minimum wage last night. >> we pay attention to jeb bush because he has a huge campaign war chest. what are people saying about his performance last night. >> that's exactly right, stephanie, the washington post did a story today where he had spoken to a jeb bush donor who

and the one you mentioned are all from the same person. we don't know who the person in custody is. all we know at the moment is university police arrested that suspect who made threats on social media and we're told that the suspect was not located on or near the campus at the time of the threat. that is what's happening. all of this, as i said, blew up after the president resigned and in addition, we had a woman, an assistant, associate professor of journalism who showed us her facebook page. someone created a fake facebook page for her. are is black and had recently written about threats she received on campus and somebody created a big fake twitter page for her, and said awful things about it, so it really has become this backlash apparently that we're hearing about, now with the threats, at least three of them that were very -- sound

blizzard warnings. you need conditions for three hours before it's counted as a blizzard. we definitely had from time to time i've seen those temporary conditions with the very reduced visibility because of the combination of the wind and snow from the rockies now going into the plains. this is a widespread area, the darkest pink is the blizzard warnings. winds could occasionally gust up to 50 miles an hour he is federally on the southern end of this that really causes problems with the visibility. speaking of that wind, this is the central united states. all of these are wind related. the winds could whip everything, but the southern end of this, some gusts could go over 60 miles an hour at times. because of that and the falling temperatures, this is creating some really dramatic wind chills, as well, so it feels
8:13 am
like 10 degrees in denver and the places ahead of this that are still warm, those temperatures will drop quickly. memphis is at 74 versus denver a high of 42. the temperature contrast feeds into the potential for severe weather. we'll watch for northern parts of the midwest, watching for that today. wind damage from storms and isolated tornadoes. >> is this the type of snow we need to increase the snow pack which was disappearing? >> i keep getting emails from the ski resorts saying we got this much and they're excited and thanksgiving is a big opening for a lot of them. it's beneficial in some cases. >> that's a silver lining. thank you. >> investigators are at the scene of a plane crash in ohio. a small plane hit an apartment building tuesday causing a huge fireball that took hours to put out. no one on the ground was hurt. authorities say nine people were onboard that plane. >> the plane became engulfed in

8:16 am
president in his capacity as commander-in-chief has the exclusive authority to make tactical military decisions. he cannot direct specific facilities in which specific detainees must be held. it is a threat that has not incensed republicans. >> if he follows through using executive action, he can vital the very law that he just signed. >> even when the democrats controlled the senate, there have been provisions that have prohibited the transfer of the terrorist detainees at guantanamo to the united states of america and so this discussion that you've seen from the administration to say that the president is contemplating an executive order on this issue clearly would vital the law. >> we're going to do everything we can to keep the president from having -- this has become an obsession with him and we're not going to let that happen. >> the pentagon recommended the super max prison in florence, colorado, considered the most secure prison in the country as
