8:11 am
party. you got donald trump, ben carson, carly fiorina moving up as well. they have no government experience at all. the poll is showing that two out of three republican voters are actually looking for someone with no government experience. not for someone with government experience. >> it's interesting excitement on the left, too, for an outsider, given bernie sanders is a politician but he's definitely more of an outsider than hillary clinton. i want to remind everyone that george has a big show this morning. he'll be grilling republican presidential candidates mike huckabee and the governor of ohio john kasich. now to a grieving community after a high school football player dies from his injuries suffered on the football field. 16-year-old tyrell cameron was rushed to the emergency room but did not make it. there were some reports he broke his neck during the game, but an investigation has been opened into the exact cause of death. overnight, shocked family and friends remembered him at a virgil.
