7:06 am
out of virginia. governor ralph northam is speaking out about the political chaos that has gripped his state and about his own political future. chief national affairs correspondent tom llamas is here with more. good morning, tom. >> reporter: michael, good morning to you. governor northam is reportedly reading "roots." he plans on having conversations about race throughout the state and isn't going anywhere. as he attempts his first steps into asking for forgiveness, already a slight stumble. this morning, virginia's governor ralph northam breaking his silence, refusing calls to resign but admitting he thought about leaving office. >> yes, i have thought about resigning. but i have also thought about what virginia needs right now. i really think i'm in a position where i can take virginia to the next level. >> reporter: but critics say, even now in his first tv interview since his scandal rocked richmond, the governor still sounds out of touch. >> just 90 miles from here in 1619, the first indentured
7:07 am
servants from africa landed on our shores in old point comfort, what we call now ft. monroe and while -- >> also known as slavery. >> yes. and while we have made a lot of progress in virginia, slavery has ended. schools have been desegregated. we have ended the jim crow laws, easier access to voting. it is abundantly clear we have a lot of work to do. >> reporter: his problems started with this racist photo from his medical school yearbook page. northam claims he's neither of those two men but did admit to appearing once in blackface. complicating matters, shortly after northam's admission, virginia's lieutenant governor, justin fairfax, now accused by two women of sexual assault, which he denies. political science professor vanessa tyson said fairfax forced her to perform a sex act in 2004. meredith watson says fairfax sexually assaulted her while
7:08 am
both were students at duke university in 2000. >> i don't think he'll have any other option but to resign if they turn out to be true. >> reporter: both women say they'll testify if there is an impeachment hearing. fairfax is denying the accusations saying both encounters were consensual. he's calling on the fbi to investigate. guys, this morning there's a new development. there was a delegate who called for impeachment. he was going to introduce articles of impeachment this morning. he has gone back and announced after hearing feedback from his colleagues, he's not going to do that. he's reversed course. a lot of colleagues want investigations first. >> those results will be brought to them later. we're going to go to washington now and the looming prospect of another government shutdown. congress has until midnight friday to strike a deal, but talke ent sig again he might go around congress by declaring a national emergency to build his border wall. our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce has the latest. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, george.
7:09 am
negotiators had hoped to announce a deal today. the two sides are further apart this morning than they were last week. and the big sticking point isn't just the wall. democrats are now demanding to limit the number of beds at detention centers. they're hoping to force the white house to focus on detaining undocumented immigrants with criminal records instead of otherwise law-abiding immigrants. the president says the democrats are acting irrationally and the top republican negotiator in the senate is putting the odds of a deal at just 50/50. so what comes next? the president has three options. one, he can agree to another short-term fix. two, he can declare that national emergency and go around congress. many republicans are warning against that move. or three, he could shut down the government again. the white house is not ruling that out. >> there is no appetite on capitol hill for a shutdown right now. the other thing the president is doing is going to el paso tonight, trying to make a case for the wall. not clear it will help. >> reporter: yeah, the president will be in the border city of el
7:10 am
paso outlining his case for the wall. george, he's been using that city as an example of his exaggerated claim that the wall would dramatically reduce crime. just while the president is speaking in el paso, one on his potential 2020 rivals will also be speaking out in the city, former texas congressman beto o'rourke. he will be making his case against the president's wall. >> beto o'rourke has not yet joined the race for the white house, but two new democrats got in the race over the weekend. minnesota senator amy klobuchar braved the cold and snow on sunday. massachusetts senator elizabeth warren had her official launch on saturday. our senior national correspondent terry moran is with us. the president didn't stop his attacks on warren on saturday. >> reporter: no, he did not. two presidential hopefuls, two more attacks from president trump. get used to it. we have a long way to go now. senator elizabeth warren of massachusetts making her announcement in the old mill
7:11 am
town of lawrence, massachusetts, promising big structural change on behalf of the middle class. she also went after president trump and his administration, calling it the most corrupt in living history. so, of course, given their feud, that required a response from the president, apparently. he tweeted, will she run as our first native american presidential candidate, or has she decided after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? see you on the trail, liz. mocking her claims of having native american heritage. and some people saying that trail, all caps, a possible reference to the trail of tears. the forcible relocation of thousands of american indians. was the president joking about that? some say he doesn't know enough history to say that. >> it wasn't that subtle there. meantime, senator klobuchar. another woman. another democrat, offering a contrast to senator warren. >> she does. she's now the fifth woman in the race, senator amy klobuchar. she's won three big blowout races in minnesota and taken a lot of farm counties, rural
7:12 am
areas and other strongholds. she's a moderate. she is a pragmatic person in the senate. that apparently also required a tweeted response from the president. he came out against her. he said amy klobuchar announced she's running for president. talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice, freezing temperatures. bad timing. by the end of her speech, she looked like a snowman. the president does this a lot, confuses weather with climate, and points to a place where it might be snowing that there's no global climate change. that is not evidence, as scientists will tell you. george. >> thank you, terry. we'll get a response from senator klobuchar in our next hour. she's going to join us live for an exclusive interview. michael. >> thank you, george. and now to those dangerous storms that are coast to coast. and parts of the midwest are facing dangeusrd s 37 states are on alert stretching all the way to the northeast. ginger is tracking it all this morning. good morning, ginger.
7:13 am

7:15 am
nba fans about rabies. health officials in indiana are nowi issuing an alert for anyone who may have come into contact with the bats that took over the court at the pacers game last week. >> look at the video. this was a pacers-clippers game just from last thursday. it was interrupted twice because of a bat that got down there on the court. the health officials there in the state of indiana are saying if you were at this game and came in contact with this bat, we need you to get hold of us or a health official because of the potential for rabies. the bat is gone. so it can't be t they just want to test to make sure. we've seen this at several games over the years. we saw it over the last couple of weeks at two spurs games. take you to the first one. several bats got down and were flying around. then the next game, they made light of it. the coyote, the mascot there for the spurs, dressed as batman, went and racked down the bat. but this was manu ginobili. do not do that ever. he picked the bat up and tossed it to the side.
7:16 am
he had to get a rabies vaccination. we look at this and the mascot was making light. rabies is deadly to humans. >> can you get it even if you're not bit? >> health officials say, bare skin, they just want to be careful. usually, it's a bite. but they're warning folks in indiana. if you come in contact, we don't want to take any chances here with this. >> better safe than sorry. >> folks, this is deadly to humans. they make light of it. this is a deadly disease we're talking about. >> it is. thank you, t.j. >> wow, ginobili. wow. we're going from basketball to one of the greatest skiers of all time who is retiring. lindsey vonn, she leaves the sport in style running the last race of her storied career at the world championships in sweden taking home the bronze medal in the downhill. lindsey's the first american woman to win olympic gold in the downhill saying she's retiring because of knee injuries. she was able to shake off the pain for one last great run before heading off into retirement. i've been friends with her for a

long time. i got to say, as great as she was on the slopes, even better as a human being. so, lindsey, congratulations. enjoy retireme let's go back to ginger. you have more snow coming to the west? >> as if they need more. a lot of skiers and snowboarders were happy until this happened. the chair lift covered. they had to shut down in places. that's how much snow we're talking about. so, there are now 12 feet or so in the last week and a half. it's a lot. these are pictures out of lake tahoe, california. squaw was closed for a time. they'll be happy when it's open. i want to point out how many states in warnings and advisories from seattle to boston and maine. we're going to watch the storm come through. i timed it out for you quickly. but chicago gets it tonight. that's the icy mix. if you have flights out of there tonight or tomorrow morning, watch out. ill be rain mostly from washington, d.c., to the south. your local weather in 30 seconds.
