7:03 am
sparring. we'll talk to senator marco rubio in a moment as well. let us start with nbc national correspondent peter ail exlexander in milwaukee. >> good morning. no runners most all the candidates claiming victory this morning. no major missteps either in a field that remains as big as it is wide open. here in wisconsin the birthplace of the gop, the leading contenders clashed, first on immigration, targeting donald trump's plan to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants. >> come on, folks. we all know you can't pick them up and ship them across -- back across the border. it's a silly argument. >> we have no choice. we have no choice. >> even having this conversation sends a powerful signal. they're doing high fives in the clinton campaign right now. >> later, on military spending. >> i know rand is a committed isolationist. i am not. i believe the world is a

7:06 am
best, unimpressioned by the republican debate. to give you a sense of just how much is at stake in the debates at this point, beginning today ben carson and donald trump, savannah, get secret service protection. >> all right, peter alexander. the campaign rolls on. one of the most heated exchanges came over immigration. trump vowed to deport over eleven million immigrants. some suggest that's a gift to democrats. we talked to senator marco rubio this morning. i asked him if he agrees that his party's handling of that issue is alienating latino voters. >> this believe that the hispanic community is in favor of illegal immigration. it's not true. millions of hispanics in this country have come legally or have relatives who are waiting to come legally. i think all americans want to see our immigration system work better. we want to be realistic but responsible about what to do with people who are here legally. you have to bring immigration under control. we are a sovereign country.
7:07 am
we're entitled to control who comes here, and how and when they come here. >> jeb bush this week we read in "the new york times" is preparing an all-out assault on your campaign. his super pac reportedly willing to spend $20 million to do so. you wasted no time fund-raising off that story. what do you make of that? do you think he is inadvertently helping your campaign by saying marco rubio is the target, the one we should be worried about? >> we can't control other people's campaigns. if they decide attacking us is the way forward, they make that decision. it won't affect my campaign. my campaign is about the future of america and what to do to ensure the 21st century is a new american century. >> does it help your campaign? >> i think there are a lot of people who are turned off by that kind of attack. i think more people are more interested in what will you do if you're elected president and
7:08 am
how will you turn the country around and less what can you call your opponents. >> good to have you with us, senator. thank you. >> thank you. all right. where do the candidates head from here in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press" and nicole wallace serve as communications director for president george w. bush. not a ton of fireworks in this debate. something radical. policy. talked about taxes, spending, am immigration. who did it benefit the most last night, chuck? >> i think it hurt the two frunt frontrunners. it helped people like -- last night rand paul for the first time felt like he got his voice out there. you understood what he represented in this wing of the party. marco rubio, he never got challenged at all last night. he got to sort of stay on script. that's the first time i got to hear him on immigration. totally ducked the immigration issue. jeb bush and john kasich were trying to show they could get tough on trump.
7:09 am
to see one of the other frontrunners back off, whose name was on a big immigration. shows you how controversy rubio is. >> a lot of opponents last night trying to label rubio as a moderate. ted cruz paid him the back-handed compliment, a formidable moderate. will that work? is he vulnerable there? >> rubio is always basking in the after-glow of his debate performances. this is the fourth morning of the cycle. the problem is last night they all looked good. i think the clear winner last night was fox business who made a strategic decision. i think the two candidates who went into last night with the biggest problems were jeb bush with his three previous debate performances and ben carson with the holes in his bio. they were both able to fix their campaigns' problems last night. jeb bush.
7:10 am
donors were concerned. supporters concerned why is he so low in the polls despite the resources at his disposal. did he hold them at bay? >> that's a good way of putting it. i think he held them at bay. you can't say he dominated the stage. there were times he did well. there was a moment in russia donald trump was struggling to defend this whole almost -- he started bragging that he will be pals with putin. everybody pounced on him. jeb bush pounced on him. carly fiorina jumped in and pounced on him better. took a moment that jeb bush was having a good moment at and carly stole it from him and sort of was stronger. that to me was sort of jeb bush all night. he was good. i agree with nicole. he helped himself a little bit but it's more of he helped to keep the vultures at bay. >> at this point do you assume the stage is set and everybody hangs in until the votes are cast because why not? >> i sort of look at it like that. cruz and -- there are times last
7:11 am
night you felt like you were anticipating the cruz and rubio debate that's coming. ted cruz slipped in the sugar subsidy hit. people are going, why did he do that? that's a coming attraction on an attack on rubio. it's a florida thing. i noticed that. you could tell that's coming. >> the fireworks were around the fissures in the republican parties. the dwived inivide in the party. immigration reform where you say of course we can't send 11 million people back to mexico. trump is still running on sending them back and letting the good ones back in. which most policy people say is unworkable. big divide on foreign policy. rand paul says we should be isolationists. americans are sick of war. rubio represents the traditional republican plank, we need to save the world. the fireworks, if any, were around the big issues that divide the party. >> the prize goes to whoever threads the needle most effectively.
7:12 am
>> i don't think we'll remember this debate in two days. >> chuck and nicole. thank you. let's go to ohio. this morning investigators are sifting through the wreckage of a deadly small plane crash in akron. the twin engine jet clipping power lines before slamming into an apartment complex and sparking a fire. nbc's john yang is near the scene. what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, willie. the scene behind me over the hill. new details this morning about the seven passengers who died along with the two members of the flight crew. they were employees of a property management firm, a commercial firm, based in boca raton raton, florida, on a trip looking at properties to buy. they started the day in cincinnati, went to dayton before trying to come here to akron. >> report of a plane crash. >> reporter: investigators worked into the night to secure the crash scene. >> i can see an explosion. i can see fire. >> i just heard a big, loud noise. the plane kind of like fell out
7:13 am
of the sky and veered left and right into the duplex. it just was a massive explosion. >> reporter: sorting through the smoldering wreckage left by a twin-engine jet that plowed into a small apartment building in a busy neighborhood. >> it was abnormally low. i saw the blue flash from the power lines, a second or two later, a big plume of smoke. >> reporter: mereiraculously no one on the ground was hurt. but no survivors on the ten-seat charter plane. beth blakely's sister, diane was on the doomed flight. >> you never think something like this will happen to your family. >> reporter: this flight aware photo is reported to be the very plane that crashed. preliminary reports say it was coming from dayton and was about two miles from the akron airport when it clipped utility lines and crashed into the building. debris damaged another building. >> heavy fire. a lot of wires down.
7:14 am
>> reporter: page mcveigh was snap chatting with a neighbor when the plane went down. >> oh, my god! >> i didn't know what to think. i was hoping to god that nobody was in there and that nobody was hurt. >> reporter: a resident of this complex was having lunch with her son when she got the call saying her apartment was destroyed. beth montgomery lost all of her possessions, including her cat. >> what's in a while i break down and cry. but i'm still here, and that's what's most important. >> reporter: one thing the ntsb is likely to look at is whether tuesday was rainy and low clouds all day. savannah, willie. >> john yang in akron, thanks. breaking news overnight from the university of missouri campus. online threats against students leading to increased security this morning and a lot of nerves. jacob rascon is there for us. good morning. what can you tell us? >> reporter: savannah, police this morning say they

7:16 am
if you have watched any football at all this season you have probably seen the commercials. fantasy sports contests where some armchair quarterbacks are winning big. >> there's 5 million bucks on the line. >> but now in new york state, it may be game over. on tuesday new york's attorney general sent cease and desist letters to fan duel and draftkings. two major online fantasy sports companies saying their operations constitute illegal gambling. >> this is a play as much as you want, whenever you want fantasy league. >> the attorney general's office telling nbc news it is clear that draftkings and fan duel are the leaders of a massive multi-billion dollar scheme intended to evade the law and fleece sports fans across the country. both companies have each spent more than $100 million in advertising. earlier this year fan duel announced it was signing up 20,000 to 30,000 players every day. >> more money, more winners. >> a spokesperson for draftkings released a statement saying
7:17 am
fantasy sports were not gambling but a game of skill, and new york's actions today are an unfortunate example of a state government stifling innovation, technology and entrepreneurship. this is just the latest action taken against the industry. in october, nevada gaming officials ruled that companies like fan duel and draftkings should be considered gambling, leading some to say it's a safe bet more states will follow suit. >> at minimum, if it's allowed to continue you'll see a lot more disclosure and a lot more warnings. i think the days of daily fantasy sports as we know it are numbered. >> both companies have the option to take this matter to court. in a statement, fan duel accused new york's attorney general of seeking media coverage saying, quote, we've operated openly and lawfully in new york for several years. the only thing that changed is the attorney gernneral's mind. comcast and nbc sports are among

one with a door open and the other closed. now fast forward. at three minutes the open door room is filling with thick, black smoke, but look at other room with the closed door. the air stays clear longer. at five minutes there's still some visibility. firefighters have long known a closed door helps keep smoke out, but new roach is showing how it also changes the flow of heat and toxic gases in a fire. >> this goes over the back of your head. >> reporter: to show you we suited up with the fort worth, texas fire department at their training facility. firefighters light a fire in a hallway outside a bedroom. i'm inside that bedroom with lieutenant kyle faulkner. >> what's the temperature on the other side of this door right now? >> on the other side of the door the temperature is approximately 600 degrees. >> reporter: but the door is such an effective barrier that inside our room the temperature is only about 100 degrees, hot
7:46 am
but still survivable. open that door and the room quickly heats up to more than 150 degrees, too hot to survive. so it's not just the smoke that that door is blocking. it's the heat, too. >> exactly. >> reporter: across country not every fire safety group is sharing that message. fema's fire administration group has created all kinds of safety guides for adults and kids, but in most of them there's nothing about sleeping with a closed door. we saw only one mention of it. the agency told us it tested the closed door message in focus groups and found some people didn't like it. so fema decided not to include it. a spokeswoman told us we have learned that we can't tell our customers everything that we know is important. >> lexi king survived a nighttime fire 11 years ago, but her parents and brother did not make it out. her brother always slept with his door open, lexi kept hers closed. so what would you say to a safety group that's not putting this message near the top of the
7:47 am
list? >> look at where i am right now. like -- and look at what is not next to me which is my family members. >> reporter: now, a closed door is still no replacement for a smoke detector. firefighters remind us you should have smoke detectors inside and outside of every bedroom in your house and also practice an escape plan with your family and then close that bedroom door, yours and your kids. if parents are concerned about not being able to hear their kids at night with the door closed, the folks at ul say it's a good idea to put a baby monitor in the room and close that door. they say that's the safest way to do it. willie and savannah. >> you said the two things i was going to say, keep the batteries fresh in your smoke detector, first line of defense and just learned about keeping the door closed. >> keep the door closed b and have a baby monitor. >> and a look at real winner of last night's republican debate was not one of these candidates.

8:08 am
so what they are trying to do is get these people into the stores and shopping. they want a piece of that so what -- what her going to try to do is get people to shop also online because more than 50% of those people are going to be buying the stuff online and use alternative credit like paypal credit to try to get people to shop. >> let's talk about what kinds of things there are deals on. >> sure. >> what are the types of products out there? >> you want to go ahead and if you are that person that doesn't mind having the older product, the older models for example right, those are going tonight ones that have the most discount on they. so let's say you're okay with having the last generation ipad not talking about the first generation but maybe like the 4 or the not so new one, that's going to be the one that's on the most discount because the retailers want to move that merchandise out of the store. the newer stuff, for example is going to be the stuff that's going to be mostly on sale during black friday. so if you want the new stuff, if you want that brand new ipad or that e-reader probably good to
8:09 am
wait until black friday, but the older stuff, go out today. >> let's move this way and talk about some of the stores that have deals today. what's the first one? >> the first one is sears. >> okay. >> sears is actually offering appliances deep discounts on appliances 40% off, and 60% off on mattresses and for veterans if you have your i.d., you get an extra 10% off on those appliances so you're really getting almost 50% if you're a veteran, active duty reservist or retired military. >> and jc penney offering deals on already existing deals. >> jc penny is interesting. they have up to 85% on their clearance items so you're not only getting a deal on the -- on the clearance item but you're also getting a deal if you pay online let's say purchases over $25. you get $10 off of that okay. but you have to put in this code. i'll make sure that i have it right. for the $25 off, $10 off, wethanku with a "u" and put that
8:10 am
in online and making a purchase on your credit card get 15% to 25% off if you use the purchase code 4ourvets. >> i know a lot of folks doing their shopping on amazon and they are offering deals. >> amazon up to november 14th is having a 0% off sale on selected fashion items, but amazon is really interesting. we're talking about what may be better deals for veterans day versus black friday. if you are buying the big items online let's say at an amazon probably want to go ahead and wait until black friday because you get free shipping. so there's not really free shipping available today, but if you're buying a major television or something gigantic you don't want to pay for that shipping. in fact it's useless to even pay for shipping. just wait until black friday and get that free shipping. >> what about being a smart shopper. what are some tips you can offer? >> talking about security. now everyone is having their credit card switched over to the
8:11 am
emv credit cards, basically the chip that's in your credit card so if you do not have that chip in your credit card you are liable in case any of that personal information gets compromised so you want to make sure that you're shopping with your emv card on a secure retailer that's legit and also maybe, again, we talked about alternative credit using things like paypal because you don't have to use your credit card when you're using paypal. also, you want to make sure remember all the bed bath & beyond coupons, some stashed away somewhere. use them now because pretty soon bed bath & beyond will be changing their coupon rules and also some of those retailers. if you have the coupons stashed away use them now and also negotiating. go ahead and negotiate if you want. >> there's stores if you show your military i.d. today you can get a discount as well. always good to see you. >> you, too. >> coming up next did this guy just take the most poorly timed selfie ever and what does he is wife have to say about if?
