60's, 10 to 15 degrees to warm for this time but next week big changes, more unsettled weather and rain chances and some cooler temperatures. eric: thank you. welcome back to drake university this morning. landing a national presidential debate is a big deal and involves a lot of working parts. we are joined by the dnc communications director. breaking news, the associated press just said they have been calling around to delegates and they say that hillary clinton has the overwhelming number of delegates to get a nomination. what is your reaction? >> this is caused 2 -- based on calls to unpledged delegates, what matters is those who come out on primaries and the candidates know that. whatever assessment is there today is like any other poll, what matters most now is that candidates are talking tomorrow night about the economy and the minimum wage and helping the middle class grow, that is what
6:14 am
we want to hear tomorrow night and that is what will make a difference when we count delegates after folks go caucus in iowa. eric: why choose des moines? >> it is a great place and drake university and kcci are great partners and cbs. the first in the nation, so it was important to come out and give candidates a chance to address a national audience from the first in the nation state where they can spend so much time in living rooms, town halls , and the type of the voter contact directly combat county bears, that matter so much because, as we were talking about, any count is premature and what matters is people getting to know the candidates and where they stand. we saw a huge contract with the republican debate in milwaukee where they did not have good answers on the economy and do not understand how the economy works for the middle class and all they are proposing his tax cuts for the wealthy. we want to make sure people here
6:15 am
what our candidate's vision is, the 13 million new jobs and the investments we need to make in the middle class to keep growing and moving forward into the future. eric: debate moderators have been getting headlines, what will they do to shape the conversation? >> we leave that to the networks, we want a debate that works for everyone but our candidates are not afraid to take tough questions here you have not heard them complain like the other cited because our site is serious. you are here in a substantive conversation on the campaign trail and you will hear that behind us tomorrow. that is the biggest difference between a candidate, they are not afraid to talk that than substance because they know what needs to be done to keep the country moving in the country it needs to keep moving and enough -- the last thing we want to do is be dragged back to tax cuts for the wealthy like we had back in 2008 that led to record unemployment and foreclosure signs on every street. we know that will happen if we get dragged back and that his wife it is important we are here
6:16 am
eric: more with you in about a half-hour. we have been talking with our political analyst marc sandalow -- we wanted to see what he will be looking for in tomorrow's debate. marc: going into that last debate, there were concerns that hillary was a failed candidate, couldn't hold her own against a socialist senator from vermont , bernie sanders. she outperformed most expectations and that is what people will be watching, is she still the overwhelming favorite? the policy splits aren't near as important as whether hillary clinton can look like she can stage. eric: a big-time debate like people, journalist and folks behind the scenes. analysts. we will talk with them about what they think about des moines

6:38 am
televised presidential debate. continuing our conversation with the dnc communications director. your focus is on tomorrow night but when you're -- you're phone blows up about donald trump and his comments last night. >> it is stunning to see what is happening in the republican field, a bunch of kids arguing about who can be the most extreme and who can drag economy back to a seven years ago when we lost 800,000 jobs a month. it says incredibly a lot about the fact that mitt romney could jump back in as a result of the craziness and the disconnected from reality posture he is seeing from the republican side. it shows the democrats have serious candidates and they do not. eric: what will the headlights be tomorrow night after the debate? >> you will see a lot of what we saw after the first debate,
6:39 am
we can help the middle class and that is what we want to show. this will be an exciting debate. they will want to contrast themselves from each other but it will be substantive at about the challenges that people are facing everyday, whether college affordability, we are on a campus, is a big deal for parents who want to get there children opportunities, and from the students who graduated with so much debt that it is taking them much too long to get their lives started. those what -- that is what we will be talking about. we only heard from the republicans about privatizing parking lots in regards to college costs. eric: thank you for joining us and good luck tomorrow night. kcci is a cosponsor of tomorrow night's debate and we are proud of that. proud of the fact that our own kevin cooney will be a moderator. we talked to him about his role
