few storms to the area. a cold front will dry us out for the rest of the workweek, but also brings in much cooler temps. tonight: mostly clear low: 34-40 winds: se 5-10 alo: 35 dbq: 36 iow: 37tomorrow: partly cloudy high: 59-65 winds: se 5-10 alo: 62 dbq: 60 iow: 62 back to you. the large 2016 republican field will meet again for a debate -- this time, the third presidential debate will be held on tuesday in colorado. once more, 2 debates will make up the event to accommodate all the candidates -- a earlier debate for those lower in the polls before the second debate for those at the top. the first two debates were held on august 6th in cleveland and, then, on september 16th from simi valley, california. in both cases, donald trump was the target of many of the other republicans but it was carly fiorina who saw the largest positive bounce in the polling from each debate. four of the republicans running

decision to "stay out" for 2016 could have a ripple decision throughout the race. mr. biden said time had run out to launch a successful campaign. kcrg-tv9's brady smith talked with one political expert... on what the effect might be. if there were ever a candidate able to join a presidential race late and mount an effective campaign, professor tim hagle says it would have been vice president joe biden. now, hagle says biden's supporters are left wondering about what might have been. "if biden had gotten into the race, it certainly would have been more competition for hillary clinton than bernie sanders will be. i mean, bernie sanders is going to peel off sort of a "protest vote," but not entirely that. i mean certainly, he's appealing to a certain group of people."the next step hagle says, is to wait and see what - if any - ripple effect biden's bowing out will have on the polls. if biden supporters were to get behind one of the two leading democratic contenders, bernie sanders or hillary clinton, hagle would put his money on the latter. "they may be unsure for a while and they may wait, but ultimately, they'll probably come around to hillary clinton. it's unlikely that anybody else would have the ability to jump in late at this point, and if
those folks haven't gone to bernie sanders by now, they probably aren't ever going to." in iowa city, brady smith, kcrg tv9 news. in waterloo, a long-term plan for schools and meeting the "educational needs" as administrator s will look at "expanding technical courses" and building a career center -- along with renovating existing buildings. the waterloo- cedar falls courier reports the district would offer career and technical education courses to all high school students. these students would attend classes in the new career center that would be built south of central middle school. the district would also renovate both east and west high schools. the $47 million dollar recommendation is from a high school reform committee. if leaders approve it, the district would ask for money through a bond issue referendum. tomorrow's board meeting is at 6 p-m at the education service center. more than 1,000 supporters were in west union today to support an 11
