7:02 am
we'll talk to marco rubio. first peter alexander has got the highlights. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. among the night's winners, two ambitious senators, marco rubio and ted cruz, chris christie, all setting themselves up to rise. jeb bush is getting panned for a poor performance after what was clearly a chaotic and contentious night. call it the rumble in the rockies. donald trump and ben carson largely faded to the background. the biggest clash, between marco rubio and his one-time mentor, jeb bush. after rubio was pressed about missing dozens of senate votes and bush called for him to resign. >> when you signed up for this, this was a six-year term. you should be showing up to work. literally, the senate, what is it, a french workweek, you get three days you have to show up? >> rubio turning in what many consider the best night of his campaign, blasted that as a convenient criticism. >> the only reason you're doing it now is because we're running for the same position, and
7:03 am
someone convinced you that attacking me will help you. here's the bottom line -- >> reporter: showing a new aggressiveness, john kasich didn't mince words, tearing into trump and carson. arguing both men are unqualified to be president. >> folks, we have to wake up. we cannot elect somebody that doesn't know how to do the job. >> he was such a nice guy and said, i'm never going to attack. then his poll numbers tanked. that's why he's on the end. he got nasty. he got nasty. you know what? you can have him. >> reporter: the candidates cheered on by the colorado crowd were united in their contempt for the moderators and the media. >> the questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the american people don't trust the media. >> such a nasty question. >> total propaganda. >> the democrats have the ultimate superpac. it's called the mainstream media. >> reporter: the chairman spoke after the debate.
7:04 am
>> it was one gotcha question, one personal low blow after the other. >> executives at cnbc, nbc's sister network, shot back. people who want to be president of the united states should be about to answer tough questions. on stage, chris christie showcased his tough personality. >> we have people out of work, we have isis and al qaeda attacking us, and we're talking about fantasy football? >> reporter: carly fiorina tried to reconnect with voters by acknowledging a weakness. >> after the last debate, i was told i didn't smile enough. >> reporter: all night, bush struggled to seize the spotlight. >> you find a democrat that's for cutting spending $10, i'll give them a warm kiss. >> reporter: how bad was the night for jeb bush? the nomination isn't going to be decided after the course of one debate in october, but a senior republican operative tells me this morning that his campaign is now on life support. his one job last night was to
7:05 am
show he could own the stage. savannah, in his operative's words, he didn't. >> peter alexander, thank you so much. senator marco rubio is with us now. senator rubio, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> you were up late. you have an early morning to join us. has that blow softened, by the fact that most viewers thought you had the breakout performance of the night? is that how you feel about it? >> we feel good about it, and it's just a debate. we've already done two others and felt good about those, as well. there's more to come. we have another one in 13 days. for us, every time i get a chance to do the debates, it's an opportunity to hopefully talk to the american people about the future of our country and what i would do if they gave me the chance to be president. i felt good about that chance last night. we're looking forward to the next one, as well. >> everybody is talking about the moment between you and governor jeb bush, your former mentor and friend. there were a lot of comparisons to the young jedi taking on
7:06 am
obi-won kenobi. i read a tweet that that rubio/jeb exchange is when your kid whips your behind in one-on-one for the first time. you have that relationship with governor bush. what was it like, taking him on like that? >> i have admiration for him as a person and what he did as governor of florida. i won't talk bad about him. my campaign isn't about him. i'm not running against him or anyone else. i'm running for president. what i'll continue to do, and what i hope more candidates will do, is we'll talk about who we are and what we would do and let everyone do that. and let the voters decide. if there are policy differences between them, we were engaged on those policy differences. that's how i'm going to run my campaign. everyone can run theirs. i won't change how i run my campaign based on what other people decide to do. it won't change my views about him. >> your communications director
7:07 am
last night told reporters your phone is already buzzing, calls from bush donors, ready to jump ship and join the rubio train. is that true? >> well, look. we're always trying to get new supporters. it costs money to run races. if the media stops charging for advertising, we'll stop raising the money. it's difficult to get our message out. >> to the substance of governor bush's accusations, and you've heard this time and time again, once and for all, answer the "sun centinal's" question. should you resign some would you resign? why not leave your senate seat and just remove this issue from your opponents, remove it from the discourse? >> well, for me, it's an incredible honor to serve in the united states senate. i enjoy very much to serve the people of florida. we serve real people every day. the veteran who has to fight for his disability benefits and prove he's disabled even though he's missing both legs
7:08 am
that he lost in combat, or the elderly couple who is experiencing tax fraud. we're going to continue to do it. >> senator rubio up early with us this morning. appreciate your time. >> thank you. >> let's bring in chuck todd, nbc's political director and moderator of "meet the press," and nicolle wallace, former communications director for president george w. bush. good morning, my sleepy friends. let's start with a quick, one second, who won? >> ted cruz. >> okay. timing seemed to be the biggest player in the room. timing that donald trump lost his national lead. he was subdued. timing that ben carson took the national lead, he didn't want to mess up. and timing that jeb bush seems to realize his chances are slipping away. >> yeah, jeb bush didn't have the kind of night that even his campaign acknowledged he needed to have. and afterwards, jeb bush gave an interview where he said i'm not
7:09 am
a performer. unfortunately for him and all the people who admire the way he governs, you have to become a performer to win the job. >> it was not a good night for jeb bush, and people are saying, how much longer will he stay in the race? his people are constantly saying, we're in it through the early states. we have the money, the organization. but is there kind of, for lack of a better term, a death watch? >> last night in boulder in that spin roof, it felt like a wake. other campaign operatives were not gloating about this. they were like, oh, my god. is jeb not going to actually make it to the starting line? that was this air in there. look, he has $100 million in the superpac, he has the safety net. the first president bush getting whipped in the primaries didn't get out until may. there is no way -- >> the second bush was whipped by mccain, he didn't get out. >> that said, they'll have to throw something to the wolves. he's going to have to retool. publicly do something with the campaign to shake it up. >> the people on the side of the stage there, did anybody do or say anything, anyone like
7:10 am
kasich, chris christie or fiorina, that will move their numbers? >> christie has strung together a magical moment in the debates but it's not showing in the polls. even voters like what they saw out of trump. he was subdued but had a little bit of the town hall demeanor. he seemed to be holding back and only engaging where he had to. i say cruz was the winner cruz was the winner because of his indictment of the moderators. republicans are desperate for someone who stands up against what they feel is a rigged system. >> that's the elephant in the room we haven't talked about. the media was the opponent not on the stage right with them but, clearly, a big part of this debate. fairly or unfairly, this is a winning strategy for candidates. >> well, it is. cruz captured the moment better than anybody. in many ways this was a premeditated attack. there were leaked ideas beforehand that they were going to go after the moderators and
7:11 am
say, hey, the democrats didn't get questions like this. and they determined this before the debate started. boy, cruz captured the moment. he actually came across as the guy that supposedly everybody secretly doesn't life, but he was the guy that defended everybody on the stage. maybe an important moment for him, if he does what he's trying to do, which is vacuum up trump and carson's support if, not when in my book, but if they falter. >> chuck todd, nicolle wallace, thank you very much. jeb bush will be chuck's guest this sunday morning on "meet the press." >> guys, thanks. now to the other political intrigue in washington. the paul ryan era is under way on capitol hill. the congressman was nominated to be the next speaker of the house, and they're making it official with a full house vote this morning. ryan said the republican party lost its vision and he intends to begin a new day on the house of representatives. let's turn to the drama in the sky that's captivating the country. an unmanned military balloon breaking free and drifting 115 miles from maryland to pennsylvania.
7:12 am
fighter jets had to be scrambles. the balloon's long tether causing destruction on the ground. tom costello is in muncie, pennsylvania, where the balloon came down. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. power has been restored to people in pa, and a military team cornered off this area. it's behind this tree line, described as having a lot of holes in it. it was impossible to control and very difficult to catch. >> reporter: it's a top secret project with a price tag of $2.5 billion. this morning lying in a field in central p.a. >> most of the wreckage is intact. it is secure. and it is mostly in trees. and it is in a difficult access location right now. >> reporter: this morning the military is speaking out. what caused the balloon to break loose is still unclear.
7:13 am
>> reporter: they are under investigation why it broke and why it came down over this system. >> the hovering high-tech surveillance system is supposed to watch the skies. >> this is part of a new thing that's supposed to protect cruise missiles. >> reporter: this military balloon broke free from its moorings in rain and high wind at a military base in aberdeen, maryland, and then floated out of control more than 150 miles to montour county, pennsylvania. in the east coast skies, air traffic controllers routed passenger planes around the balloon, while f-16s went to intercept it. >> they're working very, very -- as fast as they can. >> reporter: for four hours, cable news and social media followed its soaring to 16,000 feet, then descending and skipping across the pennsylvania countryside. the size of two football fields, the balloon dragged a heavy mile-long cable hitting utility
7:14 am
lines and knocking out power to 28,000 people. finally, the helium escaped and fell to the ground amid amish country. power has been restored. this has been a controversial project based on privacy and also on cost. a lot of people really dubious about the idea that you would use these blimps to essentially watch for oncoming russian missiles. >> tom, thank you. sentencing day for a former student at a prestigious new hampshire prep school convicted of sexually assaulting a younger classmate. he's asking for probation instead of prison. stephanie gosk is at the courthouse this morning. good morning. >> good morning. this case drew so much national attention in part because of the school that owen labrie and the accuser went to. it's one of the most prestigious boarding schools in the country. people were already concerned about how women were being
7:15 am
treated on college campuses. today labrie's attorney will ask for probation. he says his client has already been punished enough. hours from now, owen labrie will learn whether he's going to jail. >> guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. >> he was convicted of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child and luring someone from their computer. the accuser, a 15-year-old classmate, alleged the sex was not consensual. we're concealing her identity. >> i was raped. i was violated in so many ways. >> reporter: the trial shined a light on the elite st. paul prep school and revealed a wittual known as the senior salute, where seniors ask out freshmen, sometimes for sex. labrie denied the charges. >> it wouldn't have been a good move to have sex with this girl. >> reporter: now, the 20-year-old faces up to 11 years behind bars and would have to register as a sex offender.
7:16 am
on wednesday his lawyers filed a motion with family photos urging leniency. the harsh truth is that owen will be penalized every single day here after for what he did one night as an 18-year-old high school student. the court was given 28 pages of testimonials on labrie's behalf. friends write, he's a model gentleman. stunningly brilliant. a role model. from his father, it would do no good to incarcerate owen. his mother pleading, owen has already been hurt far beyond what anyone might ever know. a spokeswoman for the victim's family says the victim was harmed, too. >> this was sexual violence, and it was an egregious case. i'm hoping the sentence reflects what we heard in trial. >> reporter: the accuser and her family will have statements and will be in the court today. labrie's attorneys are appealing the felony charge of luring someone on a computer saying it's a cruel and unusual application of the law. >> thank you.
7:17 am
a 10-year-old boy has been injured in an apparent shark attack in hawaii. natalie has that story. good morning. >> good morning, guys. this marks the seventh attack in hawaii this year, and the third on the island of oahu, in the last three weeks. >> reporter: this morning, a 10-year-old boy is recovering from wounds he suffered after an apparent shark attack off the coast of hawaii on wednesday. police say the child was bitten on the thigh while body boarding 30 feet from the shore on the island of oahu. >> when i looked up, i saw the life guards pulling the young boy to the quad and took him under the trees and did their thing. >> he had three gashes on his leg. had a sty, which was opened. >> reporter: this is the seventh shark attack in hawaii this year, the third on oahu this month. on october 17th, a 44-year-old man was seriously injured after a shark attack off lanakai beach. >> heard him, turned and went.
7:18 am
my dad got him, and i understood that and went to get his friends. it was just go, go, go. my dad just kept him talking to keep his mind off the giant holes in his legs. >> reporter: a week earlier, a 25-year-old man lost his left leg and some fingers in an attack on oahu's north shore. it comes amid a series of recent shark attacks off the mainland waters this year from california to north carolina. due to the unusually high spike in incidents, experts in hawaii this morning are warning swimmers to stay out of dirty water. don't go into the ocean at dusk or dawn. never go out alone. >> ocean safety officials posted temporary shark warning signs and they're strongly recommending that people stay out of the water there in oahu for today. >> don't have to convince me. >> get me out of the water. >> thank you. mr. roker, what's cooking? >> we've had wild weather overnight, and we have more coming. let's show you, first of all, in minnesota, the snow is out. they've broken out the snowplows, getting things going. had a couple inches on the ground, so they're watching that.

eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. greek yogurt with a flip of tasty goodies on the side. it's the break, you make! ♪ to love this life ♪ ♪ is to live it... naturally.♪
