fox news debate will be the last before the caucuses. eight leading candidates were invited to the main stage... but donald trump has bowed out. instead, he'll hold a separate event at the same time to benefit veterans. that's being held at drake university. the iowa caucuses are now just four days away. nasa is remembering thirty years back today... that's when the space shuttle challenger exploded just 73- seconds after liftoff. all seven astronauts on- board were killed, including christa mcauliffe who was to be the first teacher in space. in honor of the challenger crew... and others who have lost their lives furthering space exploration... nasa has named january 28th is the 'nasa day of remembrance.' texas travelers are getting a prize at the pump... thirty-nine cents per gallon.... that was the going rate there yesterday. it only lasted a couple hours of course. that's the lowest a gallon of

he laid out a plan to destroy isis months before paris. he'll strengthen our border and use conservative principles to put washington's broken fiscal house back in order. jeb bush. he's the conservative you can trust, to fight for our beliefs. right to rise usa is responsible for the content of 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, there is time for rest and grandchildren.
5:51 am
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.
