7:03 am
let's go places! welcome to "cbs this morning."ight back. major garrett is at the site of last night's debate. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the debate was an instant time capsule. a prime time event in which the terrorism overshadowed every other tapopic. they clashed over the views but in the end offered an anxious nation a promise and one could be distilled into one word or phrase. >> we will keep america safe. >> safe. >> safe. >> safe. >> safe. >> your safety and security is safe with me.
7:04 am
security. >> reporter: the competition to be tougher on national security never ended and jeb bush, running in low single digits, forced his way back into the conversation by repeatedly challenging donald trump. >> this is a tough business. >> oh, i know, yououe a tough guy, jeb. >> and we need to have a leader that is tough. >> you're real tough, jeb. >> you will never get there. >> i'm at 42 and you're at 3 so, so far, i'm doing better. >> doesn't matter. >> ted cruz and marco rubio he crashed. ted accused rubio for a path for citizenship. >> does the ted cruz ruleout ever realize that people in this country -- >> sator cruz? >> i never supported legalization and do not intend to. >> reporter: chris christie said his experience as a post-9/11 u.s. attorney general.
7:05 am
on the floor of the u.s. senate. i mean, endless debates about how many angels on the head of a pin from people who have never had to make a consequential decision in an executive position. >> after the debate rand paul told us trump's calls to shut down part of the internet to force isis propaganda and target the families of terrorists were, quote, radical and ridiculous. >> i think when people discover he wants to get rid of the first amendment to the constitution they might scratch their head and say, oh, my god. >> we asked trump what he valid more. security or the bill of rights? >> i have always come down on the side of security. to me, it's the most important. >> even if it means doing something to encroach on the bill of rights? >> i hate it. i hate the concept of it. we are dealing with very bad dudes. >> trump ended months of speculation about a third-party candidacy if he doesn't win the
7:06 am
>> i am totally committediewing polling data nationally and sees a clear path to the nomination. >> thanks, major. only on "cbs this morning," new jersey governor chris christie is with us from las vegas. governor, good morning. >> good morning. >> with donald trump and senator cruz gaining ground, is it essential now for republicans in the center to come together a a coalesce around one candidate as soon as possible? >> no. listen. i think what you need to do is continue to make your case to the american people and our republican primary voters a aut the safety and security ofur country and who is best prepared, who is the most tested and is most ready to protect the united states of america and its citizens and i thought we made it clear last night that my experience as federal prosecutor
7:07 am
general and governor of new jersey makes me the best prepared to do that. >> last night, governor, did you make a conscious decision not to engage with donald trump? a couple of dust-ups between jeb bush and donald trump and can you say i'm going to let this play out and stay above the fray? what was your thinking when this was going on? >> the most important thing is to remember that our hardwareaddversary was watching last night in hillary clinton. it's not for our country to get in the minor dust-ups that these guys get into and talking about the little petty things they discuss among each other. my idea is keep the eye on the ball and make sure we get the best person to prosecute the case against hillary clinton in the fall and i believe i'm that person. >> governor, thank you again for getting up so early with us from las vegas. i know it was a late night for you.
7:08 am
the things you have gocketedadvocated for a no-fly zone in syria. you would shoot down that russian plane. what is the rulul of engagement? >> very clear, if they go into our no-fly zone after we have warned them to stay out, then they would be shot down. the fact is we need to have some clarity coming f fm the oval office and not, you know, 16 pages of rules of engagement that a pilot has to flip through before they make a decision on what with to do. you fly an american war plane, they have very clear rules of engage the and it would be made clear to russia what those rules were and if they decided to violate them, that is what a no-fly zone means, don't fly and if they fly there their plane would get shot down. >> you indicated that that would indicate world war iii. >> like senator paul they don't realize we are already in w wld war iii. i said this in a town hall last
7:09 am
a new world war and this is one where radical islamists are trying to destroy our way of life. if he doesn't understand we are already in that war it's just another example of why he is so united states. >> but if russia is our ally against isis, could we be shooting down their planes? because we are not engaged in world war iii with them. >> you're assuming that russia is our ally in -- >> i think the secretary of state -- >> that makes it absolutely certain i'm right if the secretary of state thinks that. the fact russia has been dealing our lunch money the entire time from the obama administration from hillary clinton's reset button to going into crimea and ukraine and propping up their puppet, assad. russia is in syria along with iran to prop up assad.
7:10 am
rid of assad? >> listen. i think that is something that has got to be the product of talks between our nato allies with us and our arab allies and coalition. >> but not russia? >> listen, charlie, i know that you're obsessed with russia this morning and i'm just simply not. i don't think russia has earned the right. >> no, governor, you're the one talking about shooting down their planes. >> you asked about a no-fly zone and that is the definition of a no-fly zone. if that offends folks in the u.n. crowd i'm sorry but america needs to assert itself again and playing the weak hand this president has played with this country we have russian troops in crimea and create -- >> what has that created -- >> charlie, they are aligning with the oniansranians to create an iranian empire. >> thank you for getting up with us this morning, governor
7:11 am
john dickerson is in washington and he was at the debate as well. he joins us this morning. hello, john dickerson. >> hello, gayle. how are you? >> i'm really good. you said last night's debate was about flexing muscles. in your opinion was there a clear winner last night? >> well, if it's a strength contest and it pretty much was between all of the republican candidates, with the exception of senator paul, then that benefits donald trump. he is running on strength and promoting strength and the voters have shown they think he is the strongest of the candidates. the debate took place basically on his turf. if that is the case it was a good night for donald trump. >> you're saying it might have changed something and added strength to donald trump, if it changed anything? >> yeah. i don't think it really changed anything. he is at the top of the polls. people are looking to him for strength. that is what he has been running on. so i think it only -- it only helped him. he has disappeared a little bit in some of these debates which
7:12 am
about the candidates as commander in chief. but this debate, of all of them, again, took place on his turf so it was good for him. >> jeb bush was the only one who appeared to take donald trump on. did that work for him, do you think? >> i think it worked for jeb bush but only in a limited way. so it helped his fortunes, but, you know, for the mainstream republicans who are looking for a single candidate to get behind, they have got to pick between christie and bush and rubio and kasich and would like that choice but it didn't win as jeb bush does a a little bit better, it keeps him alive so the nontrump, noncruz candidates are still -- still too many of them for the mainstream republicans. >> it probably won't win until after new hampshire, will it? >> well, that's right. therefore, it could be too late. if the other candidate has a big head of steam by that time. >> what is the most important dynamic of this race right now, john? >> well, i think there are two big dynamics to watch.
7:13 am
they return to their armistice last night and friendly to one another and both realizing they are looking for the same kind of voters. donald trump really pulling back because he has gotten some grief for going after ted cruz. the other dynamic is the split vote on the nontrump-cruz camp and keeps getting split. the better the moderate or mainstream candidates do the harder it is to finally coalesce around one. them. >> john dickerson in washington, thank you. defense secretary ash carter visit. he arrived in baghdad this morning. he there is talk to u.s. commanders and iraqi leaders about the fight with isis. the defense secretary will explore new options to defeat the terror organizations. carter is expected to discuss a plan to deploy a new amerin commando force and attack helicopters who battle isis. the faa is looking into how a southwest airlines plane rolled off a taxiway and into a
7:14 am
this happened last night at nashville international airport. the boeing slid off a taxiway as it approached a gate. 133 passengers and five crew on board and eight people taken to the hospital and one passenger had a problem with the landing gear shortly before the jet abruptly stopped. >> you could definitely feel we were going along and something happened to the wheel that caused the plane to bounce up and down vigorously until we eventually veered off the road. >> they escaped the aircraft and most of the injuries were described as bumps and bruises. hundreds of thousands of students will return to class this morning in los angeles. a terror threat led local leaders to close all public schools yesterday in the nation's second largest district. the fbi has determined it was not credible. ben tracy is at the los angeles
7:15 am
saying they overreacted. >> reporter: this high school and more than 1,000 like it have been searched and nothing suspicious has been found and the doors will reopen to student today. despite knowing this was not a credible threat, officials here in los angeles say they made the right call. >> we believe that our schools are safe. >> reporter: l.a.'s public school system is back in business, but city officials are defending the decision to shut down more than 1,000 schools on tuesday. >> if you knew what the superintendent and the school board knew at 5:30 this morning when the decision had to be made, would you have sent your child to school? been shut down today. >> reporter: the d dision to shut down schools impacted more than 64 on0,000 students. the threat came via e-mail. the writer claimed he was part
7:16 am
threatening to use nerve agents and explosive devices and assault rifles. overreaction because i think everybody would have been really scared going back to school like knowing we had a thread. >> reporter: new york city received a similar e-mail threat and kept its schools open. police commissioner bill bratton was critical of the decision in los angeles. >> i think it was a significant overreaction. >> it is very easy, in hindsight, to criticize a decision based on the results that the decider couldld never have known. >> reporter: with the recent terrorist attack in nearby san bernardino, california, mayor eric garcetti said the city's nerves are raw. >> i think everybody, including our superintendent would probably rather be criticized for overreacting and nothing happening than vice versa. >> reporter: shutting down the schools was, obviously, a major inconvenience for students and parents, but the students and parents we talked to actually
7:17 am
made the right call. they would rather be safe than sorry. law enforcement officials are trying to track down the person or persons who sent the e-mails that started all of this. >> indeed. ben, thank you very much. this morning global financial markets are bracing for the first federal reserve rate hike in nearly a decade. it is a big day. and the fed is expected to lift short-term interest rates to a range of between a quarter and a half percent. the central bank projects a series of increases over the next three years to more than 3% in 2008. jill schlesinger is here. what is the impact to our economy? >> the good news if you're a saver and suffering for so long with low interest rates on your savings, checking and cds you will see the rates creep up so great news for savers. borrower, the news is not a good. you're going to see increased
7:18 am
loans and any short-term loan like an adjustable rate mortgage. theoretically longer term interest rates heading higher and borrowers not so good. >> the key issue in the economy is growth. will it help growth or not? >> the fed has kept rates this low for this long to propel growth. the idea of a rising interest rate is usually something that might impede growth. that is the worry. >> or impede inflation? >> right. right now we are growing at about 2.25% annualized the last few years but the fed thinks after seven years of rates at zero it's time for the patient, the u.s. economy, to come out of the emergency room and walk out of the hospital on its own. no more help. >> yes, i don't need the chair, thank you very much. >> exactly. >> when you sat down, jill, you said this is like the super bowl in the stanley cup for me today you were so excited. why is this happening now and how can you get others as excited as you? >> i don't think i can so let me start with that.
7:19 am
exciting for me is the clear sign that the recovery process is sort of at the end. economy. not great for everyone. people still out of work but not lose onning hundreds of thousands of jobs every month and not seeing the economy strength. it's time no normize policy and i'm excited for today. >> i can tell! thank you, jill. you look nice too. >> thanks. >> thank you very much. parents are outraged because they say a city's drinking water

7:31 am
may said she noticed a change in her three children. convulsions and skin lesions and hair loss. >> the fact of the matter i handed them the glass of the water. >> reporter: last may, mays and other clint residents filed a class action lawsuit. in court papers they accuse state and local officials of not properly monitoring or sampling the splint river water and delaying and notifying the public of serious safety and health risks. they went on to call the city's deliberately false denials about the safety of the water deadly and arrogant. >> they continually said the water is safe to drink. >> reporter: the city's water problem started in the spring of 2014 when flint moved its water supply from a source in detroit to the flint river. the switch was supposed to save the city about $15 million a year, but the lead levels detected in flint's children under the age of 5 nearly doubled. according to a study by a local medical center. in october, city officials declared unfiltered water unsafe

>> thank you, adriana. this morning, a surrogate mother carrying triplets is refusing a request to the biological parents to abort one of the babies. britt me appeared to be a surrogate for a couple's two federalized embryos but one split and produced triplets and twin boys and a girl. the biological parents are asking her to abort the fetus and she is refusing and 17 weeks into her pregnancy in california. cbs news legal expert rikki klieman joins us at the table to discuss. i think this is really tough, because the babies are not hers, but it is her body. what are the surge gat's legal rights here? >> what you're dealing with here you have to remember this is commercial is your gassurrogacy. >> you're saying there is a contract? >> you know i'm going to say there is a contract. not only is there a contract, there is a contract and when you're dealing with california

7:35 am
there is a provision in this contract, as in many contracts, what you can do is for medical reasons. >> right. >> that the intended parents ask to abort. now here, the parents say that doctors have told them that in the event of multiple births like three that they didn't expect that you could expect developmental disabilities. the surrogate says, look, my doctors say there is nothing wrong, but we don't know that ultimately there is nothing wrong. >> she thinks she will adopt the unwanted fetus and murkying up the water? >> what happens is you have a motion against business. >> how is this going to turn out, do you think? >> i think if the surrogate carrier really wants to keep this child, she ought to get her lawyers to go into court and try to get an injunction. if that doesn't happen, you have a mess on your hands

7:53 am
>> the faa is looking into how a southwest airlines plane rolled into a ditch. >> you just wonder what happened. did we hit somebody? >> this high school here and more than 1,000 others like it have been searched and nothing suspicious has been found. that's why those doors will reopen to students today. >> the fed thinks it's time for the patient, the u.s. economy, to come out of the emergency room and walk out of that hospital on its own. >> charlie showed up wearing my christmas card this morning. >> it's a very nice card. >> did you not see it, him wearing it earlier? >> no, i'm just reacting that i didn't get a christmas card. >> maybe you didn't check your mail last night like charlie did. >> norah, i'm no longer speaking to you. please continue. >> this morning's "eye opener" at 8:00 is presented by progressive. >> i'm in the middle of war. >> no, this is the part where we sing the song -- we are a family >> it's just love all around.
7:54 am
and norah o'donnell, a bundle of love. the candidates came out swinging in the final republican debate of 2015. the nonleading candidates met on stage last night in las vegas. questions of toughness and resolve dominated the evening. >> candidates threw around sharp words like feckless weakling and world war iii candidate. they called donald trump a chaos candidate when they discussed temporarily stopping muslims from entering this country. >> we're not talking about religion, we're talking about security. >> if we're going to ban all muslims, how are we going to get them to be part of a coalition to destroy isis? he's a chaos president and he's be a chaos president. >> he has failed in this campaign, it's been a total disaster. nobody cares. >> would you carpet bomb raqqah, the isis capital, where there are a lot of civilians, yes or no? >> you would carpet bomb where isis is. >> he has also supported a
7:55 am
budget and it is a budget that would radically reduce the amount of money we spend on our military. you can't carpet bomb isis if you don't have planes and bombs to attack them with. >> marco has continued these atx and he knows they're not true. >> the middle east has been in turmoil for thousands of years. for us to think that we're going to go in there and fix that with a couple of little bombs and a few little declarations is relatively foolish. >> the middle east is totally destabilized, a total and complete mess. i wish we had the $4 trillion or $5 trillion. i wish it were spent right here in the united states. >> that's exactly what president obama has said. i'm amazed to hear that from a republican presidential candidate. >> for the russians, frankly it's time that we punch the russians in the nose. they have gotten away with too much in this world. >> i would talk to vladimir putin a lot and say listen, mr. president, there's no-fly zone in syria. you fly in, it applies to you.
7:56 am
planes of russian pilots if in fact they were stupid enough to think that this president was the same feckless weakling that the president we have in the oval office is right now. >> i think if you're in favor of world war iii you have your candidate. i think when we think about the judgment of someone who might want world war iii, we might think about someone who might shut down a bridge because they don't like their friends. they want to get a democrat. >> are you open to closing parts of the internet? >> i sure as hell don't want to let people that want to kill us and kill our nation use our internet. yes, sir, i am. >> is donald trump a serious candidate? >> the reason i ask this is if you're going to close the internet, realize, america, what that entails. that entails getting rid of the first amendment. if you are going to kill the families of terrorists, realize that there's something called the geneva convention.
7:57 am
can't kill them. >> with us now is reince priebus, the chairman of the republican national committee. good morning, reince, good to see you. >> hey, thank you for having me on. >> we see donald trump is still the front-runner, not only nationally but in many of the leading caucus and primary states. are you now expecting a brokered or contested convention? >> boy, this is a hot topic. you know, i highly doubt it. i think most likely we'll have a presumptive nominee by mid-april, end of march, but probably mid-april. and it's because the way the primary rules are set. it's pretty difficult to get to a contested convention, but certainly if that happened, we'll bow prepared. but it's highly unlikely. >> so was there a dinner where you discussed this with a lot of other republicans about how to deal with such a convention? >> not really. i mean the idea that i would call a meeting at a public
7:58 am
to discuss the idea of engineering a brokered convention, which you can't really do, it either happens or it doesn't, is ridiculous. and so this was a routine dinner that we do every month and i'm a part of it. and in 20 minutes in the two-hour meeting people were asking questions about primary rules, which would bore all of your viewers to tears if i got into some of it. but really it's a bunch of nothing is what it is. >> i beg to differ. primary rules, as you know, matter a great deal. you happened to change a lot of them for the 2012 election. many argue that barack obama is president of the united states and not hillary clinton because he understood the primary rules a lot better than her. >> because of what? >> because of primary rules and how to win in different primaries. >> you're saying hillary clinton lost because of their primary rules? >> what i'm just saying is you just said primary rules are not very important, but they're clearly very important. >> oh, of course.
tv-commercial
7:59 am
but people asking questions about how does the winner take all primary work and what happens on super tuesday and how many delegates are awarded on march 1st, i mean those are innocent questions that normal political people ask. it's not a meeting to discuss how we're going to overthrow the whole process and take over a convention. that's absurd. and i know you're doing the right thing by asking the questions, i'm not opposed to that, it's just that that particular narrative is just ridiculous. >> may i ask one question. is there -- >> yes. >> with some of the comments that came after donald trump made his comment about banning muslims from coming into the country temporarily, is there serious discussion among people in the party, your party that you're chairman of, who believe that he would be disastrous for the party and, therefore, they must do something to stop him from winning the nomination? how serious is that conversation?
8:00 am
i'm sure -- i'm sure other campaigns are trying to figure out how to win the primary, but i mean that's their job. that's why we've got 13 candidates up there last night and they're all trying to figure out how they're going to be the nominee of our party. i think it's early. clearly we have a front-runner, but i think even donald trump would tell you that it's early and that i don't think anyone is taking anything for granted right now. >> without talking about the timetable, are there things that come out of his mouth, mr. priebus, that sometimes you're sitting there with your mouth open shaking your head thinking, boy, i wish he wouldn't have said that. >> not particularly. you know, i've been through this -- i've been through this before as well. i mean four years ago it was the same thing. i remember -- and i'm not just saying this to skirt the question, i'm just telling you that four years ago i was in the same place and people were saying we're going to have a contested convention. then it was herman cain and then newt gingrich and rick perry. lo and behold mitt romney won.
8:01 am
santorum won. so i mean i've been through this and my job is to make sure that we've got a much better, far more competent national party when it comes to the ground game, the data operation, the turnout, the registration. a lot of boring mechanics. but really at the heart of what a competent national committee needs to be, and that's my job and that's what i'm focused on. >> after the 2012 election, you called for the most comprehensive post-election review in the history of any national party. you did an autopsy of why your party lost. i went back and looked and some of the findings, specifically on demographics. your own report said it does not matter what we say about education, jobs or the economy. if hispanics don't think we want them to be here, they will close their ears to our policies. is that still a concern of yours today? >> well, sure, but part of our problem as a party was because of the way congressional districts are aligned and state senate and state assembly districts, i mean the truth of
8:02 am
on a daily basis in serious hispanic and black communities across the country, then showing up a few months ahead of time isn't going to solve the problem. what you saw in 2014 was the beginning of a new republican party where we almost won the hispanic vote in colorado. we got 28% of the black vote in ohio. and it was a combination of, yes, being good on the issues but also saturating communities with republicans that are offering a different vision, better jobs, choice on education, and that kind of message works. that's what i'm talking about. people can write all the books in the world about messaging and how to do a better job, but if you don't actually have a conduit in the community delivering that message, it's not going to change. so that's really what that growth and opportunity report was all about. >> all right. thank you very much, reince priebus. a long way till november. lots of time to get the messages out. thank you, sir, very much. >> you bet. one of the candidates was
8:03 am
debate. >> i think marco gets it completely wrong. we should -- >> prime minister netanyahu -- capabilities. >> senator cruz? >> come in and take advantage of that situation. >> on this i agree with marco. you know, this president is not trusted. >> as you might imagine, all that coughing kicked up quite a fuss on twitter. viewers called it distracting and the los angeles vegas journal kept a count. rob lowe tweeted about it and said has no one at cnn production heard of a cough button? good lord, it sounds like someone is dying up there. well, he wasn't dying but it was ben carson making most of the noise. his communications director told cbs this morning that carson is not sick, just working through this cough. and the cough is almost gone. >> did you notice the coughing? >> i actually didn't. >> i didn't either. >> i didn't notice it either. >> maybe when you isolate it that way it stands out but i really didn't. rob lowe did. >> he did.

8:33 am
>> reporter: the reputation wasn't good? the alcoholism, the drugs, the women. >> yes, all of that kind of stuff. but that's not the man i knew. i told you! men take things! they have been taking things from women since the beginning of time! >> reporter: tyson's reputation as a pioneer for black actresses has given her a perspective on genuine and race. >> i'm going to my ladder. >> reporter: your ladder? what does that mean? >> you know what a ladder is, right? >> reporter: i do know what a ladder is. >> white man, black man, white woman, black woman. we are the rungs and we are holding on to the last rung. and those, they are being
