5:33 am
no word yet from trump's camp about whether he would take him up on that -- and have a one- on-one debate. as trump and cruz focus on each other, the republican who's been running third in the race has a different strategy. senator marco rubio continues to focus his attention on a democrat... "i believe deeply that i am the movement, and i know that if i'm our nominee we will beat hillary clinton." rubio says he's confident he'll have a strong turnout for the caucuses on monday night. someone who dropped out of the race is now standing behind rubio. former new york governor george pataki is endorsing rubio. he says he believes rubio has the leadership, vision and intelligence for the job. the democrats have their own close race in iowa. hillary clinton campaigned in cedar falls last night. she hit on a number of issues like health care, the cost of republicans say what they usually do when their asked

5:36 am
earlier this week.... the republican led house passed a bill to increase school funding in iowa by 2 percent in 20-17..... but this likely won't pass in the democratic-led senate... "superintendents... administrators.... who have to live within the confinds of the budget that the state sets says that's not enough." a recent house democratic survey polled school administrators to hear their thoughts... many of them suggested a funding increase of at least 4 percent.. but it's unclear if lawmakers will finally come up with a compromise... and make a decision so school districts will know how much money to the newsroom... amanda gilbert... kwwl news. the state senate is meeting today... they will discuss the bill the house passed on monday... the word is fight, fight, fight for iowa. but the word some people in new york want to hear is stop. they're being forced to listen to this.

"it's like brainwashing to me. it's the same song. 30 seconds over and over and over again," it actually affected us in the patio and hear this song played over and over and over again and they'd get annoyed reviews the song emanates from two offending speakers on a ledge near these second story what could be worse "it would be worse if it was a patriot song that would definitely be worse"
