10:06 pm
but the facts are that i never emailed anything that was considered classified. it wasn't marked classified. and i just think that at the end of the day, everybody's going to know that i asked to have all these made public. i'd love for them to be public. i'd love for people to see what i did. and i hope that will happen. stacey: clinton's campaign is also questioning the secrecy of the messages saying the emails originated and remained on the state department's unclassified system. just three days out, central iowans are honoring leaders in the black community and speaking out about important issues that they want to hear from presidential candidates who are crisscrossing the state. steve k: ryan smyth is just back from a big event called i'll make me a world in iowa. reporter: one local leader told me tonight iowa may be the fifth whitest state in the country, but this weekend is an important opportunity to put minority issues in the national spotlight. with all eyes on iowa, african-american leaders gathering tonight at a black tie gala.

10:16 pm
into tuesday, here comes the snow. and it will just intensify as the day goes along on tuesday. i do want to point out, though, it may hang on as rain in southeastern iowa. at least through midday. so, snowfall totals these are just general amounts. but i think anywhere here in heavy band, six inches plus. i'm talking plus. and then around this pink area here, four inches plus. and this is an early look with the lightest amounts where they'll have some rain in northwestern iowa. right now. a lot could change between now and tuesday. 30 degrees, partly cloudy tomorrow, 45. partly sunny. southwest winds at five to 10. fast moving system early on sunday. caucus, 37 for a high on monday. but your forecast for when everybody's out and about, heading to their locations, 33 5:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., 30.

10:30 pm
just settled with authorities for their part in the crisis that put seven million out of work and millions out of their homes. how does wall street get away with it? millions in campaign contributions and speaking fees. our economy works for wall street because it's rigged by wall street. and that's the problem. as long as washington is bought and paid for, we can't build an economy that works for people. sanders: i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. stacey: the country of kosovo opened its first diplomatic office in des moines this morning. the official announcement between city leaders and the kosovo government was made at

10:34 pm
persuade voters to show up on caucus day. while the rest of the field focuses on iowa -- >> i don't even think you have to campaign anymore. why am i even wasting my time? reporter: donald trump flew to new hampshire for a day of campaigning. that included attacking his closest rival. using an offensive term referring to babies born to noncitizen parents. >> ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada. it is a problem for him by the way. i think that's one of the reasons he's crashing. i think that's one of the reasons he's a nervous wreck too. reporter: cruz made the rounds in rural iowa and accused trump of pandering to iowa voters. >> it's easy to come to iowa and propose, as donald trump did let's expand the ethanol mandate. now, next week he maiava different position. reporter: marco rubio and other g.o.p. contenders appealed for support across the hawkeye state. >> i ask you to caucus for me. >> i hope you'll caucus for me. reporter: some iowa republicans remain undecided. or say they could change their mind.
10:35 pm
decided, tick tock, tick tock. reporter: the democratic candidates are also making their final pitches. >> for those of who you are still shopping, trying to make up your mind, i hope i can persuade you. >> it is our campaign that is generating the excitement and the interest for a large voter turnout. reporter: and turn out will be key. now, analysts say the iowa caucus has traditionally been a very good predictor of how well democratses will do and a poor predictor of how things will go for republicans. steve k: after donald trump's comments earlier today, the cruz campaign released a statement saying the only anchor in this race is the one being dragged behind the ship new york values, causing donald trump's campaign to stall out. stacey: immediatey -- media from around the world in iowa to cover the caucuses.
10:36 pm
he said anything possible on monday night. reporter: if this is a caucus on the republican side that is like every other caucus, turnout all around the state, organizing precinct captains, all the fundamentals, ted cruz is still the odds-on favorite. but if donald trump has changed the math, changed the dynamic and the conversation, he could be the winner here and if he's the winner here, not many republicans i know believe he can do anything other than secure the nomination. steve k: on the democratic side, hillary clinton's emails are again making headlines on the campaign trail. the state department now says some of the emails on her home server did contain top secret information. nancy has the story. >> hello, everybody! reporter: just before clinton took the stage in dubuque, state department spokesman announced that seven email chains from her private account totaling 37 pages were being upgraded to top secret. >> in consultation with the intelligence community, we are
10:37 pm
and we believe it's the prudent, responsible thing to do. reporter: top secret is one of the highest levels of classification, reserved for material that, if released, would cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security . the emails resided on clinton's private server at her home in new york for years. until she turned over 55,000 pages at the department's request. >> i did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. there is no classified material. reporter: in a statement today, her campaign called the move over-classification run amok. the result of bureaucratic infighting. arguing that in at least one case, the emails appear to involve information from a published news article. kirby would not share the topic of the emails or whether clinton was the center -- sender or receiver. >> i'm not going to get into debating or discussing
10:38 pm
reporter: he said the emails will be with held from public view. and not blacked out piecemeal like hundreds of other clinton emails that have already been released. the clinton campaign argues these emails should be released. at least in part. but an intelligence official tells cbs news that some of the information is so sensitive that clinton and her aides should have known never to discuss it on an unsecure system in the first place. steve k: the republican presidential candidates are reacting tonight to the clinton email story. senator marco rubio says, this is just another reason why clinton is not qualified to be the commander in chief. >> i haven't seen that report yet. so i wouldn't want to comment on it. what we know already is there was highly classified information on her server. what i know for a fact is that if a member of my staff on the intelligence committee had done that, they'd have been fired and probably would have been prosecuted. steve k: jeb bush was also attacking clinton from the campaign trail today at an event in carroll.
10:39 pm
clinton could be trusted. >> i give her respect of being intelligent, knowledgeable, policy-oriented. she has the set of detailed plans that are very different than mine. but she's, you know, she's sincere in that regard. she believe what is she believes. i can give her credit for honesty and trustworthyness. spoik he also said he believes clinton will have a hard time restoring some degree of trust with the american people. stacey: the day after the caucuses a lot of people will be trying to get out of iowa as soon as they can to follow the campaigns on to new hampshire. for most of them, that means tuesday morning. >> some japanese reporters i talked to wanted to see me tuesday but they said it's got to be before noon because they have 3:00 flights out of cree car rapids. they could not -- cree car rapids. they could not -- ceder rapids. they could not get a flight out
10:40 pm
meteorologist: a lot of this system is still out in the central pacific. it has a long way to go. right now it looks like the caucus forecast will be dry. mostly cloudy, 5:00 p.m., 33, 7:00 p.m., 30. 9:00 p.m., 29. our saturday in the mid 40's. partly sunny skies. south wind. there is a fast moving system on sunday, we could see a light mix early on. maybe a little accumulation of snow up in northern iowa. 39 degrees on sunday. the winds will get gusty as the day goes along. what is a blizzard think? wanted to show you this. we may be talking about this next week. you have to have snow on the ground or snow flying through the air, so snow to blow, winds over 35 miles per hour and low visibility. all that for three hours or more. if you waited around during this hour, going to roll some of those totals for you. try to be a little more specific. now, i do want to point out, this is through noon. noon on tuesday. there could be more on the way. but our latest computer model, bringing a band of six, seven inches from the metro off to
10:41 pm
