happy to appear on fox news... tonight.. donald trump gets a lecture.. : "i don't think not showing up for the debate tomorrow night is good for america." the sash family has had their suspicions long before the hawkeye star died last year... tonight they know an accidental overdose of prescription medication wasn't the only thing that played a roll in his death. good evening. i'm erin kiernan. and i'm dan winters... c-t-e has been blamed in the deaths of dozens of former n-f-l players and now tyler sash is among them. as justin surrency reports... his mother is is now questioning the sport their family grew up loving...

after the sudden death of former iowa hawkeye football star tyler sash in september now have a better answer...

"we had so much fun but now being on the other side of the coin, looking at it i think it's a serious discussion parents are going to have to have with their children"tyler suffered from at least 5 concussions in his football career which included time with the new york giants "i went to his apartment after the game and he had a full suit on and he was laying in bed and he was shaking so bad that he had his hands up to his head and i thought, is this not a concussion."experts say the
cte they found was more than normal for someone his age, something his mother, barney, attributes to his style of play. "my son just played as hard as he could, all the time and i think it got him into trouble."it's led her to question the sport entirely... "football isn't life, it's a game that we love and have a lot of passion for but when it cuts your life short, it's not worth it."she hopes his death can lead to awareness " i would like it if what's happened to my son could count as a positive change."and maybe help other families and athletes from suffering like her son "at first you can ask god why did you take my son, but now i thank him for what he did so he didn't suffer longer."

the american people can't afford to wait for ideas that sound good on paper... but will never make it in the real world. the grandmother who has to choose between paying for medicine and paying rent... can't wait. the single mom who desperately needs a raise... can't wait. the student with a mountain of debt can't
wait. we can make real progress, right now. i'm caucusing... i'm caucusing... i'm caucusing for hillary clinton.
congress doesn't regulate wall street... wall street regulates congress. it's a rigged economy that sends most new wealth to the top 1%. and it's held in place by a corrupt political system where wall street
banks and billionaires buy elections. my campaign is funded by over two and a half million small contributions. people who know you can't level the playing field by taking more money from wall street. i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. join the fight to take back our government. eight candidates were set to take part in tomorrow night's fox news debate... now it's down to seven... donald trump says he has other plans. trump says he's furious at fox news for putting out a sarcastic statement suggesting he is afraid of debate moderator megyn kelly. while the feud is keeping him out of the debate... it isn't keeping him off fox
: "so we have a big story going on..."the night before the presidential debate donald trump says he's boycotting -- the republican front runner and fox news agreed to a mutual truce -- at least for less than an hour -- with trump appearing on the o'reilly factor. : "i don't think not showing up for the debate tomorrow night is good for america." presidential candidate: "this is much tougher than doing the debate with megyn kelly."trump blames fox news for the bru-ha-ha -- putting out a sarcastic statement about trump's claims that moderator megyn kelly has treated him unfairly. : "kelly's question was within journalistic bounds. number two..." presidential candidate: "i disagree." : "that's good. that's good. you made your case. don't walk away, that's what america is about, robust debate. don't walk away from it." presidential candidate: "let's talk about something more important."this as a new anti-trump pac started airing attack ads. "in many ways, i probably identify as a democrat..."critics remember trump in 2012 slamming a republican for skipping a debate.
kelly on her moderating skills. presidential candidate: "do you really think you're a better moderator than i am? no i could never beat you. that wouldn't be close. you're doing a great job by the way."instead of the fox news debate -- trump say he'll hold an event thursday to raise money for veterans. presidential candidate: "lot of money is going to be raised, a lot of people are going to be there and i can do some good."i'm mary moloney reporting. as you heard.. instead of the debate.. trump is hosting a fundraiser for veterans tomorrow at drake university. he hasn't said which specific veterans organization will benefit... or if it's more than one. doors open at five... and the event begins at eight... the same time as the debate. and get this... tonight, a super-pac supporting ted cruz has pledged one- and-a-half million dollars to veterans if trump will agree to a one-on-one debate with cruz. it would have to take place in iowa before sunday... it would last one hour, and cruz and trump would have to agree on a moderator. the group "keep the promise" is
donate the money to veterans without using them as so-called political pawns. trump's decision to skip the debate prevents other candidates from taking a shot at the national front- runner... however.. they don't seem to mind. :06 obviously, the fewer people that there are, the more time you will actually get to explain things:13 rubio we've all watched some of the theatrics that go on, even up to today. whose going to show up, whose not going to show up, whose challenged who to what. all that's very interesting and makes for good television. it doesn't solve our problems :13 " i think it's a little weird. i don't see the benefit of him not debating. he seems to be worried about unfair questions when in fact he just dominates the press, it's a strange thing for him to suggest:11 well, you know, most of his life he's been a democrat, maybe he'll go to the democrat debate instead. he's somewhat mercurial and unpredictable
democrat debate senator paul's criticism might ring a little hollow. earlier this month he boycotted a fox business network debate because he didn't qualify to appear on the main stage. hillary clinton also has presidential debates on her mind.. presidential candidate"i would like the chairman of the party and the campaigns to agree that we can debate in new hampshire next week. that is what i'm hoping will happen." and this could be a reason why she wants it to happen. clinton is losing badly to senator bernie sanders in the three most recent new hampshire polls... clinton campaigned this morning in adel.. visiting the town's family fun center. clinton accepted an invitation to the center this spring and was finally able to work a visit into her schedule. senator bernie sanders is finding clinton's call for another debate a little amusing... its something he's asked for for months... sanders campaign manager responded to the request saying, "sen. sanders is happy to have more debates
them on an ad hoc basis at the whim of the clinton campaign. we propose three additional debates. one in march, april and may and none on a friday, saturday or holiday weekend. sanders campaigned in mason city tonight... and brought actress susan sarandon along with him. sanders also talked about his expectations for the iowa caucuses with n-b-c's lester holt. lester holt what is-- what's your bar for success in iowa?senator bernie sanders winning. lester holt number one? senator bernie sanders yeah. i mean i think that we have worked really hard. we started off in iowa-- later than secretary clinton did. but in the last-- number of months, we have put together an incredible-- volunteer effort. we have some-- 15,000 volunteers.. sanders also says he will release his health records prior to monday's caucus. temperatures will be mild overnight tonight and due to the melting we saw during the daytime hours, patchy fog is possible. we'll start thursday already in the upper 20s, but with a northwest wind temperatures will be just slightly cooler but not all that different. we'll see a mix of
several days and as winds shift toward the south for friday and saturday we'll see a big boost in temperatures will some of the warmest temperatures we have seen so far this year. sunday will bring a chance for a light rain/snow mix, but this is not expected to be significant. the bigger system will move in for tuesday when there is a potential for higher snow totals. being that it is still nearly a week out, there is still great uncertainty with this next system. be sure to stay updated over the next week as we continue toring you the test updates. ler sash loved playingotball. and he loved playing one of the areas that i've been particularly interested in is the area of children. we intend to be sure
and every child in this state is somebody. no matter where they're born, no matter to whom they are born. i want to make sure that every child has a chance to live up to his or her god-given potential. i've spent my life fighting for children, and i'm not stopping now. i'm hillary clinton,
and i have always approved this message. there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor,
a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know
we can create that america if we listen to our hearts. and that journey begins here in iowa. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask you to join with us at the caucuses on monday night.
