9:03 pm
while crews start getting ready for the big storm tuesday.... the city is getting ready for the storm of political campaign workers... we've got 681 locations so that's at least one volunteer in all of those spots. oftentimes many more. meanwhile we'll have people staffing our caucus helpline in case anyone has any questions. iowa's democratic and republican parties say they're dotting the i's and crossing the t's. that includes making sure each caucus site is prepared for crowds and has enough voter registration forms to accommodate everyone. and
9:04 pm
agree one thing will make the process easier... we've really evolved with the technology and we're really excited about the microsoft app this year. we've actually tested all 681 precincts and we've done successful tests with that so we're really excited about getting those results back on monday. precinct captains will enter results into the microsoft app, sending them to party headquarters. the results will then be made available to the public in real time. if you've made any changes to your voter registration in the past couple of months, you may want to show up extra early to your caucus location monday night. you may have made such a change by newly registering to vote, changing your address or changing your political party affiliation...either at the department of transportation or by mail. if you've made a change like that since mid to late december, those changes may not be reflected on the precinct caucus roster. if so, you will need to fill out a new or duplicate voter registration form
9:05 pm
06:40:48 --06:41:03 'they key is to make sure you get there early so theres no surprises. much like anything else, people are gonna cut it short, come in running in at seven oclock so they can make it, and theyre going to have to do some changes at that point which will slow the process down.' the political parties needed to run the caucus lists early in order to ensure that the more than 32-hundred temporary precinct chairs across the state received their packets. the men and women running for president are out on the campaign trail here in iowa.. but it seems the republican front- runner.. donald trump... has already moved on to new hampshire.. that's where he was today.. where he is continuing his crusade against republican rival ted cruz. "ted cruz may not be a us citizen right? but he's an anchor baby, no he's an anchor baby, ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada but canada doesn't accept anchor babies they just waited a long time."
9:06 pm
"the only anchor here is the one being dragged behind the s-s new york values, causing donald trump's campaign to stall out as voters learn about his affinity for hillary clinton and his previous statements supporting abortion." as for trump, he's due back in iowa tomorrow. florida senator marco rubio began his day in burlington... he made his final pitch... saying no matter where you stand on the issues you should stand with him because he is the only republican who can win in november. 11-39 "today i'm here, three days away, to ask you to caucus for me on monday night. number one because i will unite this party. we have our differences, but we cannot win unless we are together. and i am the only one left running that, at the end of this nomination process, can unite this party. we cannot win if we're divided and the sooner we can unite at the end of this contest, the better off
9:07 pm
rubio says hillary clinton and democrats are scared he'll be the republican nominee. new jersey governor chris christie told voters he plans to ride his "strong" debate performance into the iowa caucuses on monday. 9:13:15 "i felt really good about the answers we gave. i felt good most particularly because we answered the questions we were asked. and what drives me crazy about those things is that people get up on stage, they don't like the question they were asked and they think that you're really not listening and think you're at home distracted by the potato chips, or a phone call, and they don't realize that you listen, the people in iowa listen." :01-:27 christie hosted a send-off rally at his campaign headquarters in johnston this morning. he says he'll do better in the iowa caucuses than people think because of his campaign efforts. christie says between today and monday he will make stops in every corner of the state. senator rand paul started his day today in knoxville. he is wrapping up his campaign here by talking to younger
9:08 pm
the issues that affect them. "i think people are frustrated with washington and so am i and in their frustration they're looking for an easy way out and right now donald trump is the easy way out, give him the power and he will fix things but there is also a long standing tradition in our country going all the way back to our founding fathers that worries about one person getting too much power, so i worry about a donald trump accumulating so much power that it would be used to take away our freedoms, i'm a big believer that the constitution was put in place to keep in check power, i think it's a foreign tradition to donald trump but should be very important to iowa voters because anytime you let power get carried away, there's always the chance we'll lose our freedoms in the process." paul says his caucus hopes could depend on him winning over younger voters and inspiring them to time. hillary clinton hopes her husband, bill, will help her
9:09 pm
the former president campaigned for his wife in fairfield today. meanwhile, clinton touted her experience with foreign policy and national security in des moines. she made a promise to supporters if they go out and caucus for her monday night. "and if you will go to the caucus for me on monday, i promise you if you stand up for me monday night, i will stand up and fight for you as hard as i can for the next four years. it's more than just political candidates being drawn into the city... today the republic of kosovo took its relationship with the state of iowa to the next level. it opened a consulate in downtown des moines this morning...only its second consulate in the united states, and the first ever for the state of iowa. iowa began its relationship with kosovo in 2011 when the iowa national guard partnered with the kosovo security force.. since then, iowa national guardsmen and women have been to the eastern european country for a variety of projects. the republic of kosovo says iowa was the perfect location for a consulate because of that strong partnership and the ease of
9:10 pm
governor terry branstad says des moines is now truly an "international city." 12:34:04 "we simply are delighted to be here for this very first consulate that any country has had in iowa, in our capitol city of des moines. this is a great city, and it's gotten a lot of awards and recognitions, but this is the first international consulate that we've had here." :01- :17 the consulate is located in the court avenue business suites inside the saddlery building downtown. you'll know it when you see it...the consulate is hanging the kosovo flag just outside. donald trump's decision not to attend last night's g-o-p debate helped a local non-profit... coming up next... who will benefit from the money he raised at his event last night.. and how much they will receive... and coming up at 9-30.. spy tech.. the u-s -- has been spying on its friend and ally israel -- in a very high tech way -- for almost 20 years. who spilled the beans on this new revelation from noted government .. and how

'this guy really loves his is being trained for an important mission that could save lives... 'we raise well trained service dogs for veterans with ptsd and mobility issues.'the puppy jake foundation in urbandale was founded in 20-13, relying solely on donations 'without donations from the public we cant run and with the average dog costing us 20,000 dollars we find it highly important to raise money.but no donation bigger than the announcement on thursday that donald trump made during a special fundraiser event at drake university... 'its for our vets and youre going to love it because we raised 5 million dollars in one day...over 5 million...'22 organizations

the funds... 'it was just a euphoric feeling of happiness.' leading to around 300,000 dollars...

'is it good for me bad for me, nobody knows, who the hell knows.'for the foundation...accepting the donation from the republican front runner days before the iowa caucuses was not a political issue... 'we have people on both sides of the party lines in our group and all of us are just excitedthe only issue... was providing soldiers with a new life 'its just a great feeling because you can give back to a person who has been willing to give their life' the 300,000 dollar donation will

you're gonna have some extra cash. the national average for regular unleaded gas falling again. it's now $1.81 a gallon. prices have been down just about every day so far this year. those low prices won't help if you drive a nissan altima. the japanese automaker pulling back more than 800,000 of the mid- sized sedans. apparently the hood can pop open while the car is moving. but the economy isn't moving... barely growing in the final three months of 2015. turns out fewer people buying big- ticket things like cars and appliances. that had stocks rallying on hopes the federal reserve will take it easy on hiking interest rates. the dow still finishing down six percent for the month. and better late than never. according to a new survey, one in four employees are late to work least once a month. many offering up some bizarre excuses... including someone who said all their clothes were stolen. another person saying their hair caught on fire from the blow dryer. that's business. i'm neil
