back from there. cynthia? cynthia: stacey and steve, trump was fired up tonight. and for the first time, he launched his first attacks against ted cruz, who is rising now in the polls. trump questioned the senator's appeal to christian conservatives, saying not a lot of evangelicals come out of cuba. and he asked, how could cruz win iowa, if he doesn't support ethanol? donald: the one guy who is doing pretty good with me in iowa is ted cruz. but with the ethanol, he has to come a long way. but oil pays them a lot of money. the oil companies give him a lot of money. but i am with you. >> when nominated, what do you intend to do with ted cruz? will you name him your vice president? donald: it's not a contest.
i would say we have things in mind for ted. to be honest with you, i can see serving with him. it's important for me to win iowa. now, i could put less better on myself, say i don't care about iowa. but i do care, i do care so much. that is why i am here all the time. with all that, if we win iowa? a lot of people say we would win virtually every state in the union and it is over quickly. >> it is great. the honesty, the only way we need to go. cynthia: he has your vote? >> i believe so. >> i like the guy, i think he is down to earth. i think he is saying what we are all feeling. cynthia: one protestor did disrupt trump's speech. you can see him right there
the crowd cheered loudly to drown him out. he was taken away by police. state troopers told me there were also protestors outside, who were removed, demonstrating against trump's call earlier this week for a ban on muslims entering the u.s. well, trump did not talk about that at all tonight. and most of the supporters there who i asked said they agree with him on that issue. he spoke for about a half-hour and then answered questions for nearly an hour after that. and some iowans said they drove two hours to see him. stacey? stacey: cynthia, thanks. a new cbs news/"new york times" national poll shows trump with a near double-digit lead on ted cruz, who jumped to second. retired neurosurgeon ben carson now in third. marco rubio in fourth. and as the first votes in the race for the gop presidential nomination get closer, tension among the candidates is on the rise. ben carson is threatening to leave the republican party, if gop leaders ignore the will of the voters.
of running as an independent, but i certainly don't want to be a part of corruption. stacey: carson made the threat after a report the gop is making preparations for a so-called "brokered convention." that's where the nominee is picked at the convention, and not through the primaries. ted cruz told donors, behind closed doors, he's not worried about carson or donald trump. sen. ted cruz: i believe gravity will bring both of those campaigns down. people are looking for who is prepared to be a commander in chief? who understands the threats we face? who am i comfortable having their finger on the button? stacey: the billionaire businessman has maintained his lead in the polls, despite his controversial call for a ban on muslims entering the country. and the republican candidates will take the stage together tuesday in a debate in las vegas. you can catch it on cnn. steve: new at 10:00, a des moines mother is put behind bars for leaving her kids alone in an unlocked car at walmart. kcci's ryan smith is live tonight with reaction from the
crying children. ryan: steve, that is right. that des moines police sergeant tells me three children were alone inside the car, with the keys in the ignition. customers passing through this walmart parking lot on southeast 14th street rushed to get help. when customers spotted children alone inside a parked car, they alerted off-duty officer sergeant james butler. sgt. butler: it's just not something you do in a civilized society. you just don't leave children in a car at all unattended. ryan: security cameras show the mother inside walmart for 25 minutes. 24-year-old briana webb faces three charges of child endangerment. sergeant butler says webb is lucky the vehicle wasn't stolen. sgt. butler: any time someone leaves their vehicle unlocked and keys in it is a problem of itself. but leaving a child, if not three small children, in the vehicle is even a graver problem.
the vehicle was not running, with an outside temperature at 49 degrees. and two unopened containers of beer sat in the front cup holders. i'm looking for ms. webb. at webb's listed address -- family members refused to give her side of the story. back at walmart, when webb finally returned to the car, we find out what items were important enough to leave her children unattended. sgt. butler: originally, i assume that perhaps she was in there buying formula or diapers, only to find out she was in there buying tobacco products and nothing else. ryan: webb bonded out of the polk county jail this afternoon. when we tried to get her side of the story. the children are now in the care of another family member. kcci 8 news, iowa's news leader.
