8:02 am
all over iowa head out to the caucuses and overnight most of the candidates out on the stump including her most prominent ally, bill clinton. >> dramatic story lines in these final hours. can hillary eke out a victory against a surging bernie sanders? and on the republican side, can an embattled ted cruz pull out a win against donald trump and if cruz doesn't win, is he done? then there's the question of marco rubio. is he surging at exactly the right time? we have team coverage this morning and we start with abc's jon karl who is covering the republicans. jon, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. this is it. the final weekend before those first in the nation iowa caucuses. and that frenzy of political activity you were talking about is seen on the airwaves and on the ground, in fact, republican candidates alone have 42 campaign events here in iowa just today. it's down to the wire time in iowa. >> today i'm here three days
8:03 am
on monday night. >> reporter: if you see a candidate who washington embraces, run and hide. >> reporter: while his rivals crisscross the state of iowa, donald trump was in new hampshire unleashing a new attack on canadian born ted cruz. >> ted cruz may not be a u.s. citizen, right? ted cruz is an anchor baby in canada. >> reporter: cruz's camp fired back with a statement overnight. the only anchor here is the one being dragged behind the ss new york values causing donald trump's campaign to stall out. those jabs were traded after the final debate before the iowa caucuses which drew over 12 million viewers. that's slightly more than the last republican debate and many more viewers than saw trump's veterans rally during the trump relished skipping this one and mocked cruz for his first debate at center stage. >> i'm glad i wasn't there. i guess all of that, he got pummeled.
8:04 am
>> reporter: the front page of "the des moines register" which endorsed rubio declared it a rough night for cruz. the texas senator was unfazed. >> it is not surprising that i am not the mainstream media's favorite candidate. imworking to be the candidate of the american people. >> reporter: marco rubio was hoping for a last-minute surge in iowa signing this trump bashing holiday card from a supporter. >> so, marco, your calendar for february 1st. go rock your caucus. remember friends don't -- >> vote. >> friends don't let friends vote for trump. >> reporter: after his brief foray in new hampshire, donald trump is coming back here to iowa later today, and, dan, he's going to be campaigning virtually nonstop in iowa between now and the caucuses on monday night. >> a lot of busy days ahead of us, jon karl, thank you. >> and jon is not going anywhere between now and iowa. >> no. >> he's going to get comfortable right there. and in the democratic race hillary clinton's use of her e-mail server is dogging her during these last days before the caucuses. the state department will not
8:05 am
contain top secret information. abc's cecilia vega is covering the former secretary of state in des moines. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: paula, good morning to you. this is not what hillary clinton wants to be talking about two days before the caucuses here. these headlines could not have come at a worse time for her. overnight hillary clinton and her not so secret weapon campaigning together in iowa. >> i brought a pretty good warm-up act, don't you think? >> reporter: bill clinton center stage. >> she's never touched a thing she didn't make better. >> reporter: bill telling abc news exclusively the battle is not over yet. >> this is a dog fight. you fight till the last hour. >> reporter: a political power couple joining forces on everything from the gop's vision. >> i just fundamentally disagree. >> reporter: to the economy. >> we are not going back to that kind of failed economy. >> reporter: hillary clinton
8:06 am
bernie sanders. >> i'd rather underpromise and overdeliver. >> reporter: the one thing they didn't address, those e-mails. the state department declaring 22 e-mails from clinton's private account top secret. clinton's campaign calling for the e-mails to be made public saying this appears to be overclassification run amuck. but sanders sticking to that now famous line. >> the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> reporter: releasing a statement saying voters deserve a discussion of the issues. he is still drawing a crowd, more than a thousand people coming out to see sanders overnight. >> i get a little bit tired when you have establishment folks saying, bernie, you're thinking too big, and i say, the hell with that. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: yeah, those crowds still showing up for bernie sanders. hillary clinton is, of course, back on the campaign trail today and for the first time since her
8:07 am
by the entire clinton family, bill and chelsea. guys, i want to show you this. this is the candidate's schedule, all of them here in iowa today. three full pages, dan, that is how busy these guys are out here. it is a mad dash to the finish line right now. >> and that's how busy you will be. and i want to remind everybody we will see you tonight when you anchor "world news tonight" from iowa. cecilia, thank you. now, though, let's bring in abc news political analyst matt dowd. matt, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> thanks for coming in. we appreciate it. so how much should hillary clinton be worried about this e-mail imbroglio? >> i think it'll continue to dog her until all the e-mails come out. the state department hasn't released them all and the justice department and fbi finishes their investigation. i think this is going to -- it goes to a vulnerability she has which she continues to have which is on trust and a reminder to voters of the '90s of the part they didn't like about the '90s. it will hurt her in the general election. the question that primary is, does it undermine her argument about electability with this hanging out there? >> right, exactly, and
8:08 am
issues hanging over bernie so this is particularly pertinent now. let me ask you about the republican side. this is where things get truly interesting. what is your view of the state of play right now in the republican side? >> i think the odds are still that donald trump wins iowa and then in the aftermath of that probably wins new hampshire. that's the odds on today. i think the person to watch is marco rubio. marco rubio had a really good debate, ted cruz had a really bad debate the other night and in the course of that, i think it gives marco rubio oxygen to rise. there is a possibility he could finish second in iowa. if he does that, this becomes a two-person race between donald trump and marco rubio and it's anybody's guess what happens after that. >> a game-changing development potentially. >> completely. >> matthew dowd, appreciate it. you'll be with us straight through the finish. we appreciate it. i want to remind everybody abc news is the place to be for complete coverage of the caucuses in iowa. george and robin will
8:09 am
iowa monday and david muir anchoring live from iowa and george and the whole team standing by to bring you the latest news the instant it happens. and don't forget next saturday the republican debate live from new hampshire at 8:00 eastern right here on abc. >> because we're going to be talking about new hampshire and those caucuses right after that. all right. thank you. we want to turn now to new concerns about the explosive zika virus. 36 cases have now been discovered here in 12 states. president obama has discussed the spread of the disease with the president of brazil who is vowing to win the war on the mosquitoes that carry this disease and dr. richard besser is right there at ground zero from the epidemic in brazil. >> reporter: good morning, paula. on monday the world health organization is convening an emergency response committee to figure out how to respond to the global epidemic of zika virus. but to understand what to do, you have to understand what's taking place right here where they think the whole thing started in brazil. brazil, the epicenter for the zika virus epidemic, the country grappling with the devastating
8:10 am
infected women. i traveled here to see how it's being handled firsthand. hello. we spent our friday at a hospital in recife where we meet dr. camilla venture that. she's seen 130 babies with microcephaly, an abnormal smallness of the head. >> this is cary. we are dealing with a disease we have no information about. >> reporter: this woman's daughter was born with microcephaly. she told me through a translator she felt symptoms of zika but was told it was a different infection saying they will do all they can so their daughter can walk, speak and have as much of a normal life as possible. they're trying to get a handle on it but it's not the only place affected. this houston mother contracted the virus while on a trip to el salvador before the warnings. >> i was scratching. like my whole family saw my chest and they were like wow. >> reporter: and although the illness is usually mild, her
8:11 am
>> you have no strength, no energy, all you want to do is lay down and sleep. >> reporter: one of the keys to stopping zika virus is controlling the mosquito. so we're going to be out with the military into slums like this to see what they're doing to get rid of the places where the mosquitoes are breeding. we're covering up long sleeves using repellant. that way we'll be sure we don't come home with zika virus. dan. >> a massive effort ahead. rich, stay safe. thank you. and we have another disturbing health headline this morning, one week before the super bowl the nfl says concussions soared to a four-year high this season, and helmet-to-helmet hits are way up too. abc's ryan smith is on the story. >> reporter: a hard hit for the nfl just days away from the biggest game of the year, super bowl 50. the league releasing this report friday saying diagnosed concussions in the nfl increased 58% this regular season with a staggering 271 players sidelined since the preseason in 2015.
8:12 am
concussions reported in 2014. the study discussed on espn's "nfl insiders" roundtable. >> all we're really seeing is a real change in the game heading in the wrong direction. >> reporter: the most startling helmet-to-helmet collisions with 92 reported this year. in 2014, the nfl only reported 58. the nfl telling abc news the reasons for increases in concussions are unclear. but it will look at any significant trends over the next the numbers echoing what some claim is a growing problem for the league and for football on all levels. seven high school players reportedly died as a direct result of football-related injuries. the nfl telling us, safety is a priority last december. but acknowledging concussions remain a risk. >> the priority of the league is to protect player health and safety. >> do you think that we can ever eliminate concussions from the sport? >> as much contact as there is in the game there will always be
8:13 am
very difficult problem to solve over time. >> reporter: for "good morning america," ryan smith, abc news, new york. >> our thanks to ryan. and, you know, such a staggering increase but they think one of the reasons may simply be because the number of players screened for concussions this past season doubled, so that could be one of the explainers, as well. >> that's a good bit of context. thank you, paula. let's get it over to dr. ron claiborne for a look at the other stories this morning. what's happening, sir? >> i don't know. just kidding. good morning to you, dan and paula. sara haines, good morning. good morning, everyone. we begin with a scare in the air for passengers aboard an air canada flight from newark to vancouver. a passenger took this snapshot inside the cabin just as oxygen masks were dropped. the plane descending nearly 24,000 feet in just eight minutes making an emergency landing in toronto where emergency crews were standing by. >> take the time on the runway. >> vehicles are standing by. >> are you planning on rolling long or do you know?
8:14 am
>> no one was injured and a pressurization problem caused on the air-conditioning is being blamed on that incident. five snowmobilers were killed in what's being described as a massive avalanche in british columbia and canada. three were caught in the remote town of mcbride. rescue crews are searching for possible survivors. canadian officials say the avalanche appears to be human triggered. and new worries for residents of flint, michigan, in the middle of a water crisis. federal officials saying new tests show very high levels of lead in the water samples. they're not sure why that is. people, they are now being warned some lead levels are so high, their water filters are ineffective. and new details this morning on the final wishes of rock legend david bowie. in his will david bowie left nearly all of his $100 million estate to his supermodel wife iman and their children, bowie also asked his ashes be scattered in bali
