>> reporter: good morning, kendis and reena. even with fewer candidates on the stage, the debate was just as heated. donald trump even admitting he is going harder after ted cruz because cruz is doing better in the polls. the first gop debate of this election year began with across the board attacks on president obama. >> this guy is a petulant child. >> any nation that captures our fighting men and women will feel the full force and furrey of the united states of america. >> reporter: just seven candidates made the cut for the primetime showdown. ted cruz defending himself on two fronts from a new report that he didn't tell the federal election commission about a million dollar loan from wall street banks for his senate campaign. >> and yes, i made a paperwork error disclosing it on one piece of paper instead of the other but if that's the best hit "the new york times" has got, they'd better go back to the well. >> reporter: then a sparring match with donald trump about his accusations that the canadian-born cruz might not legally be allowed to be as president. >> i mean you have great
constitutional lawyers that say you can't run. >> i'm not going to be taking legal advice from donald trump. >> you don't have to. >> i hate to interrupt this episode of court tv, but the real -- >> reporter: trump claiming governor nikki haley actually paid him a compliment this week. >> i'm very angry because our country is being run horribly and i will gladly accept the mantle offing ander. >> cruz not backing down. >> not a lot of conservatives come out of manhattan. >> when the world trade center came down, i saw thing that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully more humanely than new york. >> besides those personal attacks, the debate focused on terrorism, immigration and the economy. the democrats are headed to south carolina next for their debated this sunday. >> thank you. let's bringing in abc deputy political director show shawna walsh to talk about all of this. >> good morning.
bazi's report including questions about ted cruz's birthplace. >> back in september, my friend donald said he had had his which way. there was no issue there. birther issue. >> the fact is there's a big overhang. there's a big question mark on your head. and you can't do that to the party. you really can't and you know -- >> this really was the showdown of the night. we were waiting for it because we haven't really seen ted cruz and donald trump go at it face to face before. because you know, really ted cruz has had this kind of bear hug strategy and they haven't really gone head to head. tonight, of course, that was over. you saw this lengthy back and forth over this birther argument. and ted cruz essentially saying that that donald trump was just playing politics that before he
that he's closing in on the polls, now it's a problem. >> who would have known the bromance would have ended over the birthers. >> the mere fak it was a topic means trump has made april packet there. the other moment that was trending ought nigight long, the #new york values. take a look. >> but everyone understands that the values in new york city are socially liberal or pro abortion or pro gay marriage. not a lot of conservatives come out of manhattan. i'm just saying. >> new york is a great place. it's got great people. it's got loving people. wonderful people. when the world trade center came down, i saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully, we rebuilt downtown manhattan and everybody in the world watched and everybody in the world loved new york and loved new yorkers. >> so really, i mean, this new york values as you said was trending.
but inside this argument, ted cruz really had a bit of a kind of an elbow to donald trump when he said that not a lot of conservatives come out of manhattan because on the campaign trail, donald trump has been saying that there's not a lot of evangelicals that come out of cuba. of course, that's a reference to ted cruz's lineage. oh it was kind of almost like a two jabs in one. but in the end when donald trump said that he was very uninsulted by that statement, he seemed to have the upper hand. what's what you've seen with it trending. > cruz also we were waiting for this moment in many instances him to talk about that million dollar loan. >> we knew that was coming. he knew it was going to come. this is the big story going in today. and he essentially just blamed the media which, of course is a tried and true blast. mostly from republican candidates, but of course, this cycle we're seeing it on both sides of the aisle. that's how he deflected by hitting "the new york times" and
also hitting the moderator for even asking about it. of course, this was the big story today. of course, they were going to ask about it. >> this was a long but really good debate. trump and cruz weren't the only candidates at it. at one point, rubio and christie also went at it. take a look. >> i like chris christie but we cannot afford to have a president of the united states that supports common core. we cannot afford to have a president of the united states that supports gun control. >> i like marco too and two years ago, called me a conservative reformer that new jersey needed. that was before he was running against me. now that he is, he's changed his tune. >> you know, it was interesting to see this because chris christie really kind of tried to turn marco rubio on his head by saying in another ing in ing in debate you told jeb bush not to attack you because we were all on the same team. marco rubio didn't have a good response to that. christie was right.
in a lighter moment the christie campaign took advantage of this and tweeted out a graphic that said hello marco, like the adele song. >> there's a part of me that would rather have six more months of college football and put the elections on hold. is that doable? >> no, i'm enjoying this. >> and now we're 17 days away. right? >> fun from the iowa caucuses. >> abc's deputy political editor shushannah walshe, thank you so much. stay with abc news as we get more reaction in from the gop debate. we'll have much more later in our next half hour and on "america this morning." let's move on right now. so far we do not know who has the three winning powerball jackpot tickets but we do know it isn't a worker at this california nursing home. her co-workers celebrating her good fortune but it was actually a hoax. the nurse's son sent her a text message after the drawing she had a winning ticket but her family has been overwhelmed by the media attention that
resulted in. what we know so far about the winning sixth where they were sold at a 7-eleven. suburban los angeles, on florida's east coast and a rural tennessee store, as well. the stores that sold the tickets get bonuses, $1 million in california, $100,000 in florida and just $25,000 in tennessee. there were also eight $2 million winners and more than 70 who won $1 million. including a group of preschool teachers in kentucky. congratulations. >> i like hearing that. goldman sachs agreed to pay more than $5 billion to settle charges over sales of shoddy mortgages that led to the financial crisis of 2008. the penalty is the largest in the bank's history, but far less than what some of its wall street counterparts paid for during their role in the meltdown. the settlement will take a toll of fourth quarter earnings by $1.5 billion which sent shares down. after hours trading. three members i've gang who
in british history last easter were convicted. their haul included $20 million in gems and cash taken from dozens of safe deposit boxes belonging to london jewelerses. the case garnered a lot of attention partially because six than 55. happening overseas, new developments in that terror attack at a starbucks. polices in jakarta arrested three in connection with the attack that left seven dead. two of the dead, a canadian and indonesian were the actual victims. of the rest of the dead were terrorists. police found a black sifs flag with one of the attackers. a health alert now. the cdc will soon warn pregnant women will to travel to corinthian countries because the zika vius has been linked to brain daniel in babies whose mothers got sick. it's carried by mosquitos. the national institutes of health is working on a vaccine.
