fair. and without donald trump there tonight, ted cruz moves to the center of the stage. is he ready for what's coming? and one last attempt to get trump back into the debate from fox host bill o'reilly. it got heated. abc's tom llamas in iowa with how it played out. >> reporter: tonight, donald trump, far from that debate stage, could still steal the show. >> well, at this point, it does appear donald trump is declining his last and best chance to possible. >> reporter: that admission from fox news heavyweight bill o'reilly pleaded with trump to change his mind. >> in your christian faith, there is a very significant tenant, than's the tenant of forgiveness. i think you should forgive not only journalists who come at you in ways you don't like, but i think you should be the bigger man. don't you think that's the right thing to do? >> it probably is. but you know, it's called "an eye for an eye." i guess also you can look at it
>> oh, no, no, no. that's old testament. if you are christian, the eye for the eye rule goes out. here is what it is. turning the other cheek. >> bill, let me tell you, are taking this much more seriously than i am. >> reporter: trump kept bashing kelly. >> i don't think she's very good at what she does. i think she's highly overrated. >> reporter: o'reilly trying again. >> i want you to consider, all right? think about it. say, look, i might come back, forgive, go forward, answer the questions, look out for the folks. >> well, even though you and i had an agreement that you wouldn't ask me that, which we did. i will, therefore, forget that you asked me that. because i told you up front, i said, don't ask me that question, because it's an embarrassing question to you. and i don't want to embarrass you. >> i'm not going to listen to anybody. >> reporter: but trump won't budge. so, there will be no repeat of his rumble with kelly at the very first republican debate. >> you've called women you don't
disgusting animals. your twitter account -- >> only rosie o'donnell. >> no, it wasn't. for the record -- it was well beyond rosie o'donnell. >> yes, i'm sure it was. >> reporter: now, trump's opponents, calling him out. >> donald trump is skipping the last debate before the iowa caucuses. why? questions. >> reporter: jeb bush tweeting, "if @realdonaldtrump can't handle the @foxnews debate, what else will he not be able to ted cruz demanding to debate trump calling that a publicity stunt. do you think donald trump is afraid to debate you personally? >> i think he's afraid of the people of iowa. questions. he doesn't want to defend his record. hoping to place in the top three knocking the circus surrounding tonight's showdown. >> oh, donald trump's not going to show up. ted cruz is challenging him in a one-on-one, mano a mano debate. interesting sideshow.
this is not a show. this is serious. >> reporter: and david, tonight, trump's event being billed as for veterans. mike huckabee and rick santorum will be at the trump event. but they say, they're not going because of trump, they're going because of the veterans. david? >> tom llamas, our thanks to you. let's get right to george stephanopoulos, who is leading our coverage of the iowa caucuses in just four days now. and george, first off, the trump campaign. they say they're not concerned about not being there, but is there a gamble here in not showing up? >> if trump were a normal candidate, this would be a dealbreaker. it would raise quells s temperament, but there's a real risk here. here's the calculation. what does he get in return? control. he controls the news cycle before the debate, controls it during the debate. controls a lot of it after the debate. he eliminates a risk, as well. a question that trips him up. a confrontation with a rival that draws blood. a businessman would look at
>> in the meantime, with trump not there, they say they're going to remove the podium, that brings ted cruz front and center. is he prepared? >> that can be an opportunity, as well. he's lost a lot of momentum in the last couple of weeks. he needs to be center stage, if he handles those attacks well and reminds people, those people in iowa, why they liked him in the first place, it could help him a real lot. this could be the biggest nightle of the capable for him. >> all right, george, thank you so much. and see you on "good morning america" and a reminder, after tonight, the next republican debate is right here on abc. i hope you'll join martha raddatz and me, saturday night, february 6th, when we moderate the republican debate, before the key state of new hampshire, right here. in the meantime, to the democratic side tonight, and just four days to go to iowa, as we've mentioned here, where it is a race to the finish. every night, a new poll, a new leader. tonight, hillary clinton on top, barely edging out bernie sanders in iowa. tonight, she's doubling down. former president bill clinton
trying to fight bernie sanders' last minute push before the caucuses. abc's jonathan karl, one-on-one with sanders tonight. will he debate hill little before new hampshire? and what clinton is now saying about adding a new debate. >> reporter: two for the price of one. hillary clinton is bringing in bill for the big final push in iowa. >> you need to caucus for hillary. you need to help her get ready. >> reporter: and in a reversal, mrs. clinton is now saying she wants more debates, starting next week. >> we have to agree we're going to debate in new hampshire, both the governor and i have agreed and we're waiting for the senator to decide to join us. >> reporter: we asked bernie sanders about that. >> i wanted more debates from day one. >> reporter: i know. >> gee, a couple months ago, it wasn't the clinton people were interested. i wonder what has happened now that they want more debates. what do you think has changed? >> reporter: here's what's changed. sanders is surging.
we stopped by his campaign headquarters today. so busy trying to score an upset iowa win, this volunteer had no time for us. how's it going? >> going well. i'm a little bit too busy right now to talk though. i'm sorry. >> reporter: and today, the 74-year-old candidate released a doctor's note declaring he's "in overall good health." good humor, too. how healthy are you? >> i am -- you know, thank god. you always want to knock on wood. >> reporter: it's a frenzy of activity in iowa today. sanders with four campaign events, hillary clinton with three, and bill clinton looking like a candidate himself, with four events all over the state. >> that sanders volunteer, too busy to talk to jon karl. i've never seen that happen. jon with us live from iowa tonight. jon, we see how close this race is. they trade the top spot almost every night. this is all going to come down to their ground games. >> reporter: yeah, and the ground game is especially challenging for bernie sanders, because he's relying on young voters, some people who have never caucused in iowa before.
as for hillary clinton, she got beat in the ground game eight years ago. they are bound and determined not to get beat again. >> jon karl, thank you. we're going to turn now to breaking developments in the deadly militia standoff in oregon. heavily armed police racing to the compound where the few remaining anti-government protesters remain holed up on federal property. the group's leader today urging them to surrender. all of this coming after this week's deadly shootout, and word authorities now racing to the scene. abc's neal karlinsky in oregon for us again tonight. >> reporter: late today, a huge convoy of heavily-armed police could be seen streaming into the compound. those last armed occupiers left inside hate been sending out videos on youtube, ranting about the federal government. >> just drop the charges and nobody dies. >> reporter: tonight, abc news has learned that authorities plan to release a videotape that shows the moment armed rancher, lavoy finicum is killed by police. sources say finicum sped away from the police traffic stop that led to the arrest of his fellow occupiers, crashing into
once out of his truck, they say he was told to put his arms up, but instead, brought them down and could be seen reaching for a weapon. that's when he was shot. now, the standoff that began 26 days ago, when heavy-armed ranchers took over this wildlife refuge, paralyzing a small community, appears to be almost at its end. >> we never wanted bloodshed. we verbalized this many, many times. and we continue to do so. >> reporter: tonight, the groups leaders each face up to six years in federal prison, after a month of mayhem here. david? >> neal karlinsky with us again tonight. urgent new warnings this evening about the zika virus. the held of the world health organization saying it is, quote, spreading explosively. by one estimate, up to 4 million cases across north and south america in the next year. here in the u.s., at least 31 cases in 11 states, and late today, the first case in boston. all contracted before coming back to the u.s.

how long does the virus stay in the system and can it affect a future pregnancy? >> reporter: well, if you look at similar-type viruses, what they find is, when a person recovers from that infection, after about a week or so, and their symptoms are gone, the virus is out of their body. so, scientists don't believe that future pregnancies are going to be at any risk at all. just the current one, when you're infected. >> dr. besser on this again tonight. dr. besser, thank you. we turn now to a health skarl out of texas we're following. an apparent gas leak at a middle school. more than 100 students and teachers evacuated. some taken out of stretchers, whisked to the hospital. one student unconscious. abc's ryan owens in dallas tonight, where there were no warning signs until students and staff began falling ill. >> reporter: for more than 100 students and staff at this texas middle school, their school day ended at the hospital. being checked out for symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. >> showed symptoms of nausea and
