presidential debate reveals sharp policy divisions among the candidates unlike their last prime time debate, they did not complain about the questions. and the focus this morning is on their answers. >> some of the biggest disagreements of the night centered on immigration. candidates also argued over tax cuts, military spending and u.s./russian relations. mainly garrett is in milwaukee where the debate took place. >> reporter: good morning. after the debate, campaigns certain their candidates had won, that means all of them, conceded the evening did little to up-end the fundamentals of this race. that is good news for ben carson and donald trump and presents the same challenge to the rest. how do skilled politicians catch up with the front running first-timerers? >> hold it. they blew up. wait a minute. >> reporter: donald trump crashed with jeb douche and john kasich and has a subject has already divided the republican field. >> for the 11 million people,
7:04 am
come on, folks. we all know you can't pick them up and shim them across -- back across the border. it's a silly argument. it makes no sense. >> all i can say -- >> reporter: trump dismissed kasich. >> build an unbelievable company worth billions and billions of dollars. i don't have to hear from this man. believe me. >> reporter: made room for bush to weigh in. ha>> tnk you, donald, for allowing me to speak at the debate. really nice of you. really appreciate that. even having this conversation sends a powerful signal they are doing high-fives in the clinton campaign right now when they hear this. >> reporter: marco rubio and rand paul spa onnedver military spending and federal deficits. >> how is it conservative to add a trillion dollars in military expenditures? >> i know america is the best military power in the world. >> reporter: ted cruz, like rubio, is gaining on trump and carson, unveiled a plan to eliminate five federal agencies but named only four.
7:05 am
>> five major agencies that i would eliminate. the irs, the department of commerce, the department of energy, the department of commerce, and hud. >> reporter: carson briefly confronted questions raised about parts of his life story. >> thank you for not asking me what i said in the tenth grade. i appreciate that. >> reporter: carly fiorina looking to regain momentum arguing she is better equipped than trump to handle russian president vladimir putin. >> i got to know him very well because we were both on "60 minutes." we were stable mates. >> i would not be talking to vladimir putin right now, although i have met him as well. not in a green room for a show, but in a private meeting. >> reporter: trump drew boos when fee rema followed the lead of others to claim a piece of the conversation. >> why does she keep interrupting everybody? >> terrible. >> reporter: to clarify one point about putin and trump, they did not meet in the green
7:06 am
room. their interviews on "60 minutes" ran side-by-side. fiorina did meet putin in asia and said she once described the meeting as a green room. >> thanks, major. florida senator marco rubio is with us from milwaukee. good morning, senator. >> good morning, charlie. >> reporter: you participated in the debate last night. there was much talk about immigration and a debate about deportation. some suggested that you might have wanted to wade in more on that because you opposed deportation. should you have? >> well, i don't oppose deporting people that are criminals and i don't oppose deporting people that haven't been in this country a very long time. i think we have to have a realistically policy of people here a long time and not criminals but you have to begin with two steps before you do that. you have to bring illegal immigration under control and prove to the american people that has happened. then you have to modernize your
7:07 am
legal immigration system an only after you've done those two things is move to the third step which is conduct background checks on everyone who is here illegally and if they are criminals they have to leave and if not they have to pay taxes and have to pay a fine. they have to learn english. and they get a work permit and all they will have for at least ten years. i have the most well-defined plan when it comes to grags and an issue we need to confront as a country and my position is well stated and repeatedly stated. >> senator, let me ask you specifically. the administration appealed to the supreme court yesterday to block the deportation of four million immigrants after a court of appeals upheld an earlier injunction. i know you know about this case that she hadded to the supreme court potentially. are you for deporting those 4 million immigrants who are the parents of many legal residents here? >> yeah. this is a tough issue, because you're talking about human beings and real lives. the flip side of it you're talking about the law. this country has a right to have immigration laws and it needs
7:08 am
to. >> announcer: those laws or you don't have rights. no one has a right to illegally immigrant to the and i live this issue very day and see it and live in a majority immigrant community and my parents and my wife's parents were immigrants and all of my neighbors are immigrants. we have to have a system that is fair to the people trying to come here legally. >> can i clarify your position on that? you would see the 4 million plus immigrants deported? >> we need to enforce our law. it's the wrong way to do this and, quite frankly, we need to begin to enforce our immigration laws in this country or we don't have immigration laws. every country in the world has immigration laws and america is entitled to have to have laws and enforce them. >> a lot of supporters last night were giving you a way to go with your commercial before the debate where you have jeb bush praising you. what is your strategy there and what is your relationship like with jeb bush?
7:09 am
>> well, no. look. i am close. i mean, i admire him greatly and have tremendous respect and affection for him as a person. unfortunately the last four weeks, he has chosen to attack me but i'm not change i my strategy and reciprocate that. i'm not changing who i am or the campaign that i'm running because of someone else's strategic decisions and changes in their campaign. i hope -- we are going to continue to run a campaign that is realistically about our challenges and optimistic about our on opportunities and our future. i think ultimate that is the way to win this nomination and be elected president. >> there are new questions this morning from the miami herald about your use of a credit card, a state party credit card years ago. you've addressed it and said it was a mistake but they are detailing that it was used more than once. how do you explain that? >> yeah. we have explained this more than anyone cares to know. this is a small -- this is a bureau down in florida of one newspaper that is obsessed with the story. bottom line is we have revealed all of the documents and people can see it's all there.
7:10 am
it's not a big issue and we are moving on. it really is a silly story and they can continue to write about it but as i said, the republican party never paid any of my personal expenses. there were personal expenses and the few times there were we paid for them directly to american express and, as i said, this was all audited by the republican party and looked by by the florida ethics commission because of a democrat's complainant and we have addressed it and moved on. >>. >> we talked deeply about issues and i'm glad we had one and i hope all of the other ones will be like that. >> senator rubio, we thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you. "face the nation" host and cbs news political director john dickerson is at drake university in des moines where he will moderate the cbs news democratic debate on saturday. do you think this debate moved the needle for any of the candidates last night?
7:11 am
>> i don't think so. it didn't move the needle for those who needed to have it move up, particularly jeb bush. i think if you're of the view that marco rubio and ted cruz will probably face off in the final contest, i think both of them had strong moments last night. as far as republican voters are concerned. but there was nothing that donald trump and ben carson, the two front runners at the moment didn't do anything spectacular but their support is pretty solid and probably stay where it was before the debate. >> ben carson spoke the least for those keeping track and only when spoken to. what does that say about what he is trying to accomplish here? >> well, he was never the most exciting or flamboyant candidate on the stage ever. and so his support and his rise comes from somewhere else. it comes from voters who take a reading of him and like him for other kinds of qualities. as opposed to donald trump who has that more energetic personality. so i think for ben carson, he will continue to have that relationship with voters and kind of continue going along on
7:12 am
his lane. he is not the kind of person where we will look to him in debate. i think the challenge for him will be if there is ever another -- an opponent who raises the idea to basically he doesn't have it on the issues and tries to use the debate format to do that. but we haven't really seen anybody take that to him yet. >> who had the best night, do you think, john? >> i don't think anybody had a super standout night. i think that ted cruz had a couple of very strong moments on immigration, defending basically the laws of the americans saying anybody who thinks that if you want to uphold tos laws that you're being anti-immigration, he was very strong on that. marco rubio and rand paul had an exchange over defense in which rubio was able to speak to the defense hawks in the party very forcefully and rand paul was able to energize his voters by talking about the principles of conservatism. those three had, and carly fiorina had a couple of strong moments. i don't think there was a real breakout which it feels like the race will continue along the path it was on before the
7:13 am
debate. >> john dickerson, thank you. you can watch john moderate the cbs news democratic presidential debate on saturday night on cbs at 9:00 p.m. eastern. people are on the scene to get answers from a plane crash. all nine died when a jet crashed into an apartment building yesterday. it sparked a massive fire and the plane was approaching the akron international airport at the time. don dahler is near the crash site and joins us morning. >> reporter: the hawker twin engine jet crashed in this neighborhood at 3:00 yesterday afternoon. you can see the apartment building where the jet crashed into is out of our picture there in front of where that fire department truck is. the medical examiner is waiting a little while until we have full daylight before he goes in both to recover evidence, as well as recover the bodies of the nine victims. >> looks like we have a plane into a house, heavy fire.
7:14 am
we have a lot of wires down. >> reporter: the private charter flight ended in flames in this akron neighborhood. >> all of a sudden, this plane just dropped out of the sky. i just knew there people not walking away from it. >> reporter: the owner of the hawker 800 jet said seven passengers and two crew members were on board. >> we haven't been able to get any answers. we have been up all night. >> reporter: jenny says her sister was killed in the crash. she said it was a trip planned to scout real estate. >> she was very excited because it was the first trip she had ever made with the executives and the tragic thing is the plane had all of the executives for the company on it. i don't know if there were any left in the office. >> reporter: the flight left the dayton wright brothers airport at 2:13 p.m. and crashed in akron and crashed near the akron international airport. >> it sounded like ammunition
7:15 am
going off in there. you heard it popping. >> reporter: witnesses told the emergency dispatchers the plane clip telephone and electrical wires and slammed into the apartment building. >> an airplane just crashed into these houses right in front of me. >> it started to turn, the wings -- or the wing hit above the line and went straight into them. >> reporter: its fuselage came to rest in an embankment behind the building. the fire burned for hours and making the initial investigation difficult. >> this is a very complex situation and it need to be done very carefully and everything needs to be documented well. >> reporter: no one on the ground was hurt. this man said the building that was hit is the place a friend called home. >> he just left his apartment to buy groceries and by the grace of god he wasn't there. >> reporter: the investigators say the jet's cabin is largely intact although charred. they hope the flight data recorder reveals some reason for this crash. >> thank you, don. this morning, tens of millions of americans are in the path of severe weather.
7:16 am
heavy snow is falling this morning in colorado. plows are clearing the way. but many drivers could face whiteout conditions. other parts of the country could also see dangerous weather. meteorologist danielle niles of our boston station wbz is tracking it all. >> reporter: good morning. the snow is flying. we had reports of thundersnow the last couple of hours in portions of colorado and nebraska the sign of the amount of energy with this thing. blizzard warnings and winter storm warnings are up and measuring the snow in feet by some spots by the time this is done. taps the gulf of mexico for moisture and threat for severe weather today. up and down the midwest all the way to the gulf coast and southern plains, southern iowa, western portions of illinois, and northwest missouri at the greatest risk. charlie, damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes by later on today. >> danielle, thanks. this morning, the two largest daily fantasy sports websites are fighting back after being ordered to shut down in new york state. new york attorney general eric schneiderman tuesday sent draftkings and fanduel cease and
7:17 am
desist orders and both companies are blasting his decision. vladimir duthiers spoke with the attorney general who says the sites amount to legal online gambling. >> reporter: good morning. daily fantasy sports were exempted from a 2006 law. with recent accusations of insider trading and bombardment of television ads, legislators are banning the sites. it's a crackdown on daily fantasy sports largely unregulated game play. after new york attorney general eric schnideman ordered the two biggest fantasy sports company to stop accepting bets in the state. >> daily fantasy sports we have been looking into over a month we concluded is not some new version of fantasy sports. it's a new version of online gambling. >> reporter: on tuesday, schneiderman sent notices to
7:18 am
draftkings and fandu fanduel to and desist. >> it lures in people who are the most prone to gambling addiction problems. >> reporter: in a statement, fanduel said the following. draftkings also called daily fantasy sports a game of skill. we strongly disagree with the reasoning in his opinion and will examine and vigorously pursue all legal options. ." the royals are world champions! >> reporter: major sports have both anti-gambling policy and investments in daily fantasy sports. major league baseball has an undisclosed stake in draftkings and the nba in fanduel. >> it could create drama forward and cue things up for a lot of other states that have been looking at this at the same time. >> reporter: six other states have declared that daily fantasy sports is gambling but according to industry research new york state has more daily fantasy

players than any other. last night on twitter both companies asked daily fantasy fans to sign petitions against the order. >> there is a lot to play out right now, though, because, you know, this will be challenged in court. in the meantime, it's a pretty crushing blow for these companies. >> reporter: draftkings and fanduel have five days to respond to tuesday's notice, although draftkings is headquartered in boston, it's unclear how the order will affect fanduel which is based here in new york. >> thank you. did a school district did way too far responding to the latest sexting scandals? students are suspended for having a video they never asked to receive.
