7:14 am
there's going to be a debate here. if he weren't behind in delegates, this would be a toss-up race. he has more money, raising more, states that are favorable coming up and a line of argument against her that is appealing to democratic voters. she has to have two weeks of pain she can end if she wins in wisconsin. >> mark and nicolle, appreciate it. breaking news overnight. happened at one of the nation's busiest airports. newark had to be evacuated because of a boiler room fire. the fire broke out about 1:00 a.m. fire was put out and the building reopened. a few hours later, the fire rekindled, forcing yet another evacuation. several flights were cancelled and others delayed. this morning, the terminal is up and running again. we've got another big story
