(sot) o'malley: energy grid by 2050when hillary clinton and bernie sanders are now in a tight battle to win
((sot)) clinton?? sanders?? ((sot)) clinton?? sanders??on this night.. the first issue tackled.. gun control.. (sot) clinton: "he has voted with the gun lobby numerous time. he voted against the brady bill five times." (sot) sanders " ... secretary clinton knows what she says is very disingenous. i have a d-minus voting record from the nra." the exchanges.. heated at times.. discussing the economy and healthcare.. (sot) ??(sot) ??but the two also remaining civil.. finding common ground on other issues.
and so now it's onto the iowa caucus where the race is still tight between hillary and bernie.. but nationally.. a new poll shows hillary still ahead.. by 25 points. . elizabeth hur, abc news, new york. 9 on your side teamed up with politifact, one of the most respected fact checking groups in the nation the so-called soundbites of the debate.. and hold these politicians accountable for what they say. our first fact check focuses on statements hillary clinton made while talking gun control. she made some accusations on bernie sanders' stance on the issue.. that we wanted to check up on: our team at politifact did some research --- and dubbed that accusation "true".sanders *did* flip-flop his stance on
gunmakers and sellers. in 2005 sanders voted for the a measure that provided broad liability exclusions. after months of defending the vote, his position started to evolve in october 2015. three months ago -- he said he would "take another look" at the liability question. and on saturday, his campaign said he would support changes. that sounded like a flip-flop to our poltifact team -- so we rated clinton's statement as "true". and this is not the only fact- check of tonight's debate.our politifact team will be working long into the night - reviewing statements from other candidates.we'll be posting all our "truth ratings" on wcpo dot com and tell you what we found out tomorrow morning, on good morning tri-state. new at 11.a franklin man is killed after falling off a backhoe while at work. work.27-year-old justin tankersley fell 10 feet at "ohio operating engineer center" in west carrollton.it happened around 8 yesterday morning.investigators aren't sure what caused him to fall.
