7:06 am
men. swing for the fences. >> reporter: in the aftermath of the shout matches trump said there was nothing new to learn. is there anything about your experience tonight that tells you it would be worth your time to brush up more on the substance of either entitlements, health care -- >> no. >> palestinians, any of those issues? >> i think i did great on every subject. >> reporter: one question that wasn't answered in the debate -- why hasn't trump released his personal tax returns? during the conversation, trump blamed an ongoing audit for ignoring their release. the first man who raised this issue, 2012 republican nominee excuse. florida senator march he ko houston. senator, good morning. >> did someone hit the panic button last night? >> well, i don't know what you're talking about. i can just tell thaw a con artist is about to take over the republican party xt conservative movement and we have to put a stop to it. look at the report you guys just did.
7:07 am
night on the issues of health if you listen to that report that led into this the media is pumping him up as some sort of unstoppable force. donald trump is consistently fighting for the working people he says and he has a stick to working people for 35 years. if any other candidate in this race had his record there will be nonstop reporting on it, but, unfortunately he is pumped up because many the in the media with a buy oos know he is easy to beat in the general election. we will put a stop to it now and no way we will allow a con artist to take over the conservative movement and donald trump is a con art i- >> what do you think a trump senator? >> it would be chaos. no one knows but it would look probably like the positions he has held for all of these years. on many of these issues, he is wholly unprepared to be president of the united states. on any specific public policy. for example. they asked him about the debt. he claimed he is going to cut the debt by cutting fraud and
7:08 am
and he didn't get any follow-up and no press on that and no enobody pressed on him after that and i tried to get the moderators to ask him about that. this is the most important job on the planet and we are about to turn over the conservative movement to a person who has no ideas of any substance on the important issues. the nuclear code of the united states to an erratic individual and the conservative movement -- a career sticking it to working people. >> please let us get a few more questions in. >> we want to ask you specifically about a meeting that cnn is reporting this morning. that your campaign manager met with top donors behind closed doors and the possibility of a contested convention in order to earn the nomination to get the nomination was discussed. is that something you're thinking about? >> no. but the truth is that it is possible that no one gains the 1236, 1,236 delegates that are necessary to win. if you look at the way it's going now, no one may have that number of delegates and that in and of itself could trigger a convention after the first round delegates are free to vote
7:09 am
that not to be the case and much rather have someone win the nomination in this process but not a con artist like donald trump. >> you've said that a number of times, con artist like donald trump. you've been on the stage with him throughout this campaign season. you were very different last night and much more combative than i have ever seen you. >> well, because it's a narrower race, number one. number two, i acknowledge we are an underdog. >> are you acknowledging that you failed to do this so far? >> no. well, first of all, i would prefer not to get into a fight with other republicans but i would much more prefer not to turn over the party to a con artist like donald trump and last night is the last debate before super tuesday and i'm asking everyone watching tonight if you're a republican and you don't want your party taken over by a con artist like donald trump unite behind us and go to marco rubio.com and join us to put an end to this allowlunacy.
7:10 am
trump is still ahead by double digits. that is why i asked that question about the panic button. it appears that donald trump is rolling toward the nomination. >> yeah. well, if you want to base that on one poll, that's fine. we have our own polls and other public polls show that is not the case. we will win florida. i know our state very well and it is not voting for someone like donald trump. i will acknowledge there are some people watching this broadcast are intrigued and think he is a straight-talker and fights for the little guy but donald trump has spent 40 years sticking it to the little guy or longer. every time -- >> senator. >> one of his businesses fail, you know who didn't get paid? the little guy who was working for him. >> we invite you to come to new york to the table, senator. thank you for this morning. >> thank you. thank you. >> joining us is "face the nation" moderator and political news director of cbs john dickerson who is in washington. >> good morning, charlie. >> reporter: help us understand what is going on in the republican party. are they in a moment of panic as norah suggested because it looks like trump is going and marching
7:11 am
>> sure. last night was the best venue for somebody like marco rubio to take him on. you're not going to win a twitter war with donald trump. the debate venue is one in which rubio could have shown why a trump presidency could be dangerous and he had the expertise for the tricky challenges facing america. when you get into rah shouta shouting bhach donald trump you're the talking points you heard from the senator are ones he didn't deliver last night and the ones he probably would have preferred to delivered but he got into that shouting match with him and see if that does anything for voters. >> john, do that math for us. as we look towards tuesday night, we will all be here together on cbs looking at those results. how close is trump to capturing this nomination? what will we see on tuesday night? what will we know? >> there is a dealt question and momentum question. on tuesday night, 11 states. texas is a big one we will be watching that to see how cruz
7:12 am
but donald trump, if he wins all of the rest of the states, even if the other contestants get some delegates coming out of that, the question is what will the conversation be afterwards? if donald trump wins a whole bunch of states, let's say he wins ten of them, while the others may be amassing delegates, it will continue this kind of snowballing of the trump victories and the question then becomes will people join behind his campaign? there is some sign that is happening. >> certainly some questions we will be asking at this table should that happen. john dickerson, thank you. on sunday he will talk with nation." democrats vote in south carolina tomorrow and recent polls give clinton and overwhelming lead. she attacked sanders gun control record yesterday near a church last summer. >> we need to close the gun show and what is called the charleston loophole.

excel plant where ford worked as a painter. his coworkers said he appeared normal when he arrived to work on thursday. investigators are now trying to figure out what triggered the shooting. within seconds after he fired, he was right to the building within five seconds. >> reporter: loved ones rushed to the excel industries plant in hesston, kansas, when they heard of the shooting. cedric ford, a 38-year-old employee of the factory, had opened fire on his coworkers. >> heard him yell something and that got our attention and turned around and popped out with an ak-47 it appeared like and fired a few shots outside before he went in and ducked down and went into the building. >> reporter: armed with an assault-style weapon, police say the rampage started on this road around 5:00 p.m. the shooter opened fire from his car, hitting someone in another vehicle. ford continued north shooting another person in the leg and stealing their car. he then made his way to the

o'donnell and vinita nair. gayle is off. investigators this morning say they are close to identifying a motive in yesterday's deadly rampage in kansas. three people were killed by the gunman and at least 15 hurt. at least four are in critical condition. early indications do not show any connection between the shooting and foreign terror groups. police say the gunman was served a protective order for an abusive relationship shortly before the shootings. cbs news has identified the gunman as cedric ford. he was armed with an assault-style weapon. the shooting stretched across two towns outside of wichita. the shooting occurred at excel industries where ford worked and he was killed an hour after the rampage was started by police. marco rubio and ted cruz hit front-runner donald trump last night's debate on everything from health care to immigration. >> you're the only person on this stage has ever been fined

8:06 am
views the last several days listening to the debate going from helping is terrorist clear-cut black and eye test to my view today which i think is the right one. fundamentally supporting tim cook in what he is trying to do. this is ultimately a question of drawing the line in the sand and it's a brand-new set of problems. fbi or law enforcement asking a company to write code to survey its customers is unprecedented and what tim cook is trying to do is bring it into the public debate all the way to congress, court. and have a clear set of laws created because there isn't anything on the books today. so i think that is profound lie important. >> you've heard the case that the fbi director said on capitol hill yesterday. the code the judge has directed apple to write works on only this phone. so the idea this getting into the wild and working on my phone or your phone experts tell me is not the real thing. is that argument -- >> i think it runs on this
8:07 am
extension, it's true that they can write code that works on any other iphone, yours for example or my laptop or your laptop. if there is ultimately a law is a thassays that is okay, tim cook is saying we need to hear it and stated to the american people we are all fine with this. >> max, what do you think has changed? because as i look at this debate, apple has been cooperating with law enforcement, as well as us intelligence agencies for years. last year they handed over 3,000 cases and why all of a sudden has apple decided to draw a line in the sand on this case? >> i can't speak for apple, obviously. i suspect and -- just like i said, it's a really complex issue and all of us, certainly i as a parent or a husband, the initial reaction let's help the law enforcement. it's very clear that apple has been andments to continue to do so. but it must have felt that the slope has gotten very slippery,
8:08 am
data that you had access to as court order would compel you do you're asked to do more and build more software. why not expect to have software in your phone to record what you say and that is something they clearly could not deal with without having it completely heard out publicly. >> why is it that the government needs apple's help? i think people would think, naturally why not recruit people on your own from silicon valley and you have your own capability of hacking into the phone. >> it turns out this particular one issue technologically without apple's help is impossible. the security within the iphone today is strong enough where the company, itself, has means to unlock it if they are compelled to do so, but the best hark in the world, without apple's help, could not. >> how do you square this? i mean, as you know, it's a need to ask this. you worry about precedent and you worry about having access by anybody and, clearly, people around the world will use the
8:09 am
>> but what is it that prevents this society from figuring out a way to allow them to get information about terrorism? >> i think we are ultimately worried about the precedent. i think that is the most important thing here. >> precedent takes precedent over the lives of people who might be endangered by terrorism? >> i think that's the hardest part about this case, and i think what tim koom cookcook is saying, yes, it does. it's really hard for me to say, yes, it does, but i think from the prospective we want to live in and what law we want to do firefight it does or doesn't we need off a public debate about it and a law says here is what it means. we have been here before. the precedent from waterboarding and we have put aside the

to us as a society, as a country in favor of solving a problem that is immediately in front of us, and, subsequently, we found ourselves soul searching over and over again. i think that is what they are trying to prevent. >> do you think this process and this conversation is taking place now and that either at the supreme court level or before congress, something will change? >> absolutely. i think it is out. >> max, thank you. spike lee is in the toyota green room. we will take a closer look at

do you want to talk to a lawyer or talk to us first? >> i guess i'd like to talk to a lawyer. >> reporter: bowman got his lawyer and he was arrested. wife jennifer was released but stood by her man. there were hundreds of jailhouse phone calls. >> they had pet names, jen was bunny. and mrs. bowman, jennifer, was snuggles. >> when they talked to each other, they talk in baby talk. >> honey, how are you? >> i'm doing good. how is my little snuggle? >> i dream about you. >> yea! >> reporter: when police examined bowman's computer, they discovered he had been building a library of information on death and murder. and videos reveal he was an >> police didn't know they were looking for a student of murder. someone who would kill just to kill. >> peter van sant is here with "more just to kill."
8:19 am
this was a random killing and one of the most terrifying kind by a genius engineer. this man was working on making the first electric motorcycle. he designed robotics and went to college when he was 1.2. very much a loner. fancied himself like james bond and could fire handguns accurately and won a shooting competition with both hands and played it out to this tragic end. >> what question is your piece asking? >> our piece is trying to get inside the mind of someone who had everything in life to achieve and, yet, chose a random act of violence that is similar to what a gang member would do. he pulled up alongside a complete stranger and put four bullets in his head and why? the back story is fascinating. >> especially based on what you've told us. what a prodigy he was. peter, thank you. you can see his full report "a student of murder" "tomorrow night on cbs, at 10:00/9:00
