it's a coup for trump, who's fight for first in iowa with ted cruz... i think it'll help. she's got a it'll get him a few more votes. but i think he doesn't need any help. i don't know a lot about her but she seems like a strong woman. she's got some good ideas. i think she can do a good a job as a lot of others. someone like her might end up in his cabinet or running mate. palin supported cruz's 20-12 senate bid. the endorsement isn't the only hit ted cruz's campaign is taking... i think it would be very damaging to our state. that's the reason he wasn't invited to this. i believe it would be a big mistake for iowa
6:03 am
the governor made the comments at the "iowa renewable fuels summit." he said he wants to make sure cruz doesn't win the caucus, calling him the biggest opponent of renewable fuels. he also said big oil finances cruz's campaign because he backs them over iowa's ethanol interests. cruz wasted no time firing back at governor branstad... well look, it is no surprise that the establishment is in full panic mode. we said from the beginning that the washington cartel was going to panic more and more. as conservatives unite behind our campaign, you're going to see the washington cartel firing every shot they can, every cannon they can. because the washington cartel lives on cronyism. it lives on making deals. governor branstad has never served in washington, he's held his position for a record 6 terms. democrat bernie sanders is gaining ground in hillary clinton... when we started we were in 3% in the polls, we were 50 points

monday... they've dumped one and a half million gallons of water on it, but are still finding hot spots. but it's location has helped in their efforts.. as it's right across from the city's fire station. investigators are now trying to determine the cause of the fire. drake is the latest university to place a ban on hover boards... the ban applies to its dorm rooms and other buildings on campus. federal authorities say the motorized devices can cause serious injury. and beyond that, they say some of them have even caught fire... more than 20 colleges have banned hover boards already, including the university of iowa. we know january is typically a busy time for places like gyms and health clubs, but did you know that it's also one of the busiest months for bird watching. that is where we find channel 13's josh nguyen live this morning, he is at jester park to give us the skinny on bird watching.

sarah palin threw her weight behind donald trump at an event in ames. the 2008 republican vice presidential nominee said trump is the anti establishment candidate. she says social conservatives are angry and trump will shake up washington. it's a coup for trump, who's currently locked in a tight fight for first in iowa with ted cruz. it's also a blow to cruz, as palin supported his 20-12 senate bid, but he's remaining cordial... i love sarah palin, without her friendship and support i wouldn't be in the senate today. regardless of what sarah does in 2016, i will remain a big fan of sarah palin's. there's still no word if palin plans to stump for trump anywhere else. ted cruz may not feel the same way about governor branstad anymore... i think that ted cruz is ahead
6:20 am
we're trying to educate the people of iowa. he is the biggest opponent of renewable fuels. at the "renewable fuels summit," the governor said he wants cruz to be defeated in the caucus. he said big oil finances cruz's campaign behcause he backs them over iowa's ethanol interests... the comments were the first thing donald trump mentioned when he walked on the summit's stage. i know the governor just made a very big statement that was appreciated by many and was amazing actually, he's a respected man and when he speaks people listen. republicans mike huckabee, carly fiorina, and rick santorum also spoke at the summit. they all expressed support for the renewable fuels industry. rick santorum is expressing confidence in iowans, despite dropping poll numbers... i'm not anticipating a big jump in the polls like that this time around, but i think we'll see a steady climb and a little rush here at the end that will put us in the game of being in the top 4 or 5 folks that will finish

after it was issued. the court will decide whether president obama's action violates the constitution. and iowa's latino community hopes justices side with him... it makes no sense to have 11 million hard working people to be put in the shadows especially when theyre rebuilding this country, so we need to change directions and were hopeful that the next president will do that. the court will hear arguments in april, and likely issue its ruling in june. a school funding measure is moving forward in the iowa legislature. the house education committee approved the proposal yesterday. it bumps funding by two percent, or about 83 million, for the upcoming academic year... it now heads to the house floor, and signals republicans' opening bid in negotiations over the issue. the democrats, however, are pushing for a four percent increase in funding. experts say january is the best month to spend some time with our feathered
