5:00 am
i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. now on today in iowa... the final republican presidential debate before the iowa caucuses goes on as scheduled -- without the person leading the polls. plus... an armed suspect tries to enter a bank. but we'll show you how the bank's manager stopped an attempted robbery. and a girl got quite a surprise when she was sent to the principal's office. her father is home. good morning, i'm ally crutcher. and i'm jerry gallagher. storm track seven meteorologist kyle kiel is here now with your

forecast. we are in for another day with a partly to mostly cloudy sky across eastern iowa. temperatures will warm into the upper 30s for most areas and it will be breezy with a south wind 10-20 mph. tonight, aside from an isolated rain or snow shower far north, it will be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the upper 20s. saturday will be mostly cloudy with temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. we are tracking a weak system on sunday that will bring the chance for rain changing to snow. it's not looking like a huge rain or snow maker, but there could be some minor snow accumulation. we will keep an eye on this trend. we are still tracking the potential for a large storm to bring snow to the midwest. timing shows the storm affecting us after midnight monday, so if you have any caucus plans you will be good. the storm and its affects will be with us through wednesday. because this system is still 4 to 5 days out, and the storm is still out in the pacific ocean, computer model guidance has been fluctuating. bottom line: a major winter storm will be affecting the midwest, and there will be
5:02 am
we're just three days away from the iowa caucuses... as many republican presidential candidates squared off in a debate last night. the fox news debate is the final showdown before the caucuses. but frontrunner donald trump was not there. he skipped it. some of the candidates who were there made light of it. "a debate actually is a policy issue, but i will say this. leave the stage." trump refused to show up last night over a fued with fox news anchor megyn kelly instead, trump held his own event for veterans just a few miles away. since announcing the event a day foundation had raised more than 5 million dollars for veterans... "you have to stick up for your rights. when you're treated
5:03 am
your rights. you have to do it." two other republican candidates...rick santorum and mike huckabee...joined trump on stage. they didn't qualify for the main debate we're down to the wire. a handful of days before the iowa caucuses. the first test to decide our next president happens monday night inside lunch rooms and libraries. right now, the candidates are organizing and hoping to catch fire at the end. voters are organizing themselves -- and some have questions about the process. here are some of those answers in this caucus class. "wow!" "well, whoa! wow!" "trump, trump, trump" it's almost time for the hand shaking and speech making to end. 315 days after the first major candidate announced a run for the white house, the first official test happens monday night in iowa. "we're making a big decision." big? yes. easy? no. the republican field is crowded - and the
5:04 am
a race than most expected. caucus-goers have a lot to sift through - and for some - it starts with the rules. "it couldn't get much more complicated than it is now." some people have a different description: "it's crazy the system of yours. it's nuts." democrats meet in their precincts monday night. it's like a neighborhood meeting. it starts at 7 o'clock sharp so if you need to register, you have to do it beforehand. from there, they divide up into preference groups, but if one candidate fails to be considered viable, which typically means - getting 15-percent - they have to convince others to join their group or disband and align with someone else. that's a scenario that could play out - and could help swing the final results. after that, delegates are awarded to help determine the winner. using a formula that. well, we'll just say is not a simple head count. so what about the gop? it hasn't changed much over the years. check out kwwl's coverage from 1988.
5:05 am
little easier than the democrats. after signing in and finding their precinct, they waste little time getting down to business." "from here, the caucus process is a simple one. for the republicans, it's time to take a poll of the voters. a secret ballot to determine the winner. of course, that doesn't mean everything will run smoothly." "pray it isn't snowing like it was that one year. it was incredible." thanks to the 2012 caucuses, they also might be praying for accuracy. "we had a little problem last time around (laughs) but it all worked out in the process, but it's a fun night and an interesting night. and an educational night." so what can we expect monday night? "i'm thinking three tickets and right now, it's looking like the third ticket is the most likely the nominee." kwwl political analyst chris larimer sizes up the two republicans who've been leading the field in iowa. "i'd be very surprised if either one goes on to be the nominee."
5:06 am
could be the golden ticket." which has happened before. "winning the iowa caucus is a plus in the system, but it's not a guarantee of anything." what it can do is build - or kill momentum - for a campaign. and turnout is always a key. dr. larimer predicts about 140,000. "but if that gets over 150, 160,000, then that's to the benefit of trump and sanders." since the 1970s when iowa moved front and center to be first in the nation, the caucuses have helped thin the herd. there's been a lot of handwringing across the country about iowa in the front seat, but anyone who questions the legitimacy of the iowa caucuses -- consider this: in 1980, george bush surprised everyone by beating ronald reagan in iowa. bush's performance paved the way for him to become vice president under reagan. and eventually president. without his first place finish in 1980 in iowa, it's possible there would've been no bush dynasty. and also no barack obama in the white house.

2008 - with a record turnout - and kept on rolling. "it's an interesting evening and there will be surprises." but from who, what. or even where? it's almost time to piece together the puzzle iowans create every four years. many of you have asked where you need to go monday night to caucus. we've got a link on our website with information -- so you can find your precinct. some black hawk county voters are worried how they'll participate in the caucuses -- if they don''t have a ride. while neither the democrats nor republicans will be officially providing transportation... they tell us they're making arrangements for those people to ride with other voters. a concern this year is voter turnout...
