school, the republicans caucused, about 400 of them. this is one precinct. ted cruz did win this precinct like the state of iowa. he finished an impressive first. there was a lot of talk about the ground game in iowa. it's important to shake hands and meet voters more than once. people want to meet you two or three times. ted cruz was first. donald trump finished second, but the real big showing of the night and probably what donald trump is most upset about is that marco rubio finished right on his heels. it was a very strong third place finish for marco rubio. just a short time ago, we heard from both rubio and donald trump. donald trump: we will go on to get the republican nomination and we will go on to easely the hell they throw up there. iowa we love you and thank you. ted cruz: tonight here in iowa,
after seven years of barack obama, we are not waiting any longer to take our country back! phil: we are still watching the ted cruz campaign headquarters, people want to hear from ted cruz tonight. he is taking his time coming down to declare the victory. he is the clear winner. on the democratic side, hillary clinton and bernie sanders still entirely too close to call even at this hour in this state, we're talking less than a percentage point right now. remember, there are 1,600 plus precincts in this state, 99 counts. they have to tally up all of the votes, especially when it's this close on the democratic side. we'll be here through the night and on the i-tomorrow morning monitoring this for you and we'll be back in a few minutes to give you a firsthand look at what it was like in this gymnasium when the democrats, 800 of them strong were trying to convince each other who to vote for. you want to stay tuned for that.

slip a piece of paper between them in the end. a loss tonight would leave hillary clinton 0-2 to start out the primary/caucus season and that's not good. mary ann: no, it's not whether she holds on tonight by the skin of her teeth or she wins, a piece of paper she is in the fight of her life now. no more talking about a firewall or any of that if she has any chance to win new hampshire, she has to pull out some kind of win tonight. even after that, ed, she is in a log dogged fight with bernie sanders who is raising gobs of money off of low donors, $27 a person, $20 million this past month before and she has to see what is in front of her. the tougher it is, the better she does. really it was going to be this hold on by two or three points. we'll see how it turns out without some kind of win in new hampshire. if she goes over two, surviving the 11 days between new hampshire and nevada and trying to win there, unchartered territories.
her life. she has to try to win it tonight, tomorrow, and the next two weeks and probably the next month to come. ed: thanks so much. breaking at this hour, two candidates have been dropping out of the race, former maryland govnor martin o'malley is ending his campaign and mike huckabee is doing the same. he won in 2008 and finished in the basement tonight and suspended it. j.c.: after iowa, all eyes turn to new hampshire, some candidates are already there ahead of next tuesday's primary. it's about to get more crowded. jorge quiroga is live. jorge. jorge: the new hampshire primary is one week from tomorrow and more than one candidate is hoping to launch a comeback here. ignoring iowa, jerk bush at a town hall meeting more crowded. jorge quiroga is live.
