sites the night came down -- you saw it -- to a coin toss. >> at least three different times they had to toss the coin. luck in politics it takes and hillary and the iowa democtic party declared her the winner last night but we know that bernie sanders isn't conceding that loss right now at all. and he's got a big lead in new hampshire right now. this could be a long fight on both sides. big questions right now, can nald trump bounce b back from a loss? who can prevail in what's been a pretty bitter feud between ted cruz and marco rubio and why can't hillary clinton put bernie sanders away. >> that's right. we'll talk to marco rubio live in a moment. the latest, team coverage as you can imagine of all the night's major developnts and we're going to get rightht to abc's jon karl in iowa for us. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. ted cruz became the first republican to get int a brawl with donald trump and it was
>ur next president. >> reporter: stunning finish for ted cruz in iowa. >> that is the most votes ever cast for any replican pmary winner. >> reporter: we were there just afteter cruzeard the news that he had won. >> tremendous evening. i am very, very encouraged, very, very happy. what a victory for the breathtang. >> rorter: the senator from texas defied the odds handing donald trump his first ls with ads like these. >> how stupid are the people of iowa? >> donald trump, new york values, not ours. >> reporter: people that voted for you said you shared their values so the new york values attack worked. >> everyryone know what is new york values are, i mean it's the values of the eli leral politicians. >> reporter:cruz's victory was fueled b by his appeal to evangelical christians. >> our rights come from our creator. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: donald trump called
more than six months now has a new title, loser.r. he also proved he could take a loss gracefully. >> we finished second and i i want to tell you something, i'm just honored. i'm really honored and i want to congratulate ted. >> reporter: the iowa loss is a big blow to trump but this was alys his weakest state. he leads everywhere else. >> we will go on to get the republican nomination and we will go on to easily beat hillary or bernie or whoever the hell they throw up there. iowa, we love you. we thank you. you're special. we will be back many, many times, in fact, i think i might come here and buy a farm. i love it, okay. >> repter: but perhaps the biggest republican surprise of the night, florida senator marco rurubio, who finished a stronger than expected third nearly beating out trump. >> they tolde that we have no chance bause my hr wasn't
too high. >> reporter: there h been much speculation about how donald trump wld ham defeat. would he go and not lash out or behave badly. he handled it with remarkable restraint as you heard, he thanked the voters of iowa. he congratulated ted cruz and perhaps most surprisingly, no angry tweetss overnight. in fact, from donald trump overnight total twitter silence. >> yeah, he was pretty graceful in deft last night but, jon, it did seem like the voters in iowa who made up their mds at the last minute had a real gut check about donald trump. >> reporter: they sure did. it was remarkable. if youooked at those that decided in t last three days, they overwhelmingly broke first for marco rubio actually most and then ted cruz. very few broke for donald trump. and i think a big factor there, george,as i know with a lot of iowans i talked to they were offended by his decisn to skip at debate. >> yeah, they might have wanted him to be there. thanks very much. we turn to the democrats and
it is hard to beny closer than this. look at th. 49.9 to 49.5 right there but iowa democratic party has declared clinton the winner, the clinton camp, as well but ers did fight herer to a virtual draw and has a big lead in new mpire. cecilia vega has the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: george, good rning to you. there were cheers on the clinton plane when it touched down here in new hampshire not that long ago wn staffers found out that the iowa democratic party had declared her the winner. the big question right now, though, if hillary clinton is the winner in iowa just how big of a win is it really? a democratic sociast from vermont putting a serious d dt in the clinton armor. it had all the hallmarks of a victory speech. >> wow. what a night. an unbelievable night. >> reporter: the only thing missing the word "victory." >> as i stand here tonight,
thank you, iowa. >> reporter: while the democratic winners still too close to call hillary clinton took to the stage in iowa, her family b by her side but overnight her campaign going all the way declaring an outright win saying in a statement, after thorough reporting and analysis of results, there is no uncertainty and secretary clinton has clearly wonhe most national and state delegates. but that race so tight in some precincts a coin toss broke t tie. clinton winning at least three,e, her supporters cheering. >> yes. [ cheers and a alause ] >> reporter: this morning, senator bernie sanders not giving up. >> tonight while the results are still not known, it looks like we are in a virtual tie. [ cheers and applause ] >> r reporter: sanders' campaign claiming victory too touting how far he's come since launching
>> whatt iowa has begun tonight is a political revolution. [ cheers and applaususe ] >> reporter: on his flight overnight into new hampshire where polls show the vermont senator has a strong lead sanders sounding confident as he heads into this next battle in his own backyard. >> i think tonight shows the ameran people that this is a campaign that can win. >> reporter: and sananders is still not conceding. hehe says ia shoho he can compete any state in this country. therere s, however, one concession overnight, the third person in this race, former maryland governor martin o'malley, robin, has dropped out. all right, cecilia, thank you. we're going to turn now to the republican candidate who had a bi night last night, marco rubio from -- joins us now from manchehester, nehampshire. already made your way to new hampshire, senator rubio, thank you very ch for j jning us again this morning. >> thankyou,robin.
short time ago that showed that a big number of late undecided voters went your way. what do you think yr message was that helpedhem make up their mind toward u? >> wellll, i think people realize on the republican side that we cannot afford this couountry cannot afford to lose this electionnd i give the party the besthance not just to unify the conservative movement but too grow it to take our message too peoplehat don't vote republican w, grow our party and movementnd defeat hillary clinton or bernie sanders and so i feel that we felt that momentum in the last few days and got more votes than mitt romney or rick santorum when they won the caucuses four yearsgo so we feel great about what iowa did and thanked them and we're ready to go in new hashire and excited about the momentum we're carrying in. >> there were a record number of gop caucusgoers in iowa and many thought a lge turnout would favor donald trump, but he was defeated. what do you think that says? >> wel look, there's a lot of
than ever because rublicans and americans understand that this election is the most important election in the generation it's literally a referendum on our identity as a nation. we're either going to be greater than we've ever been or we're going to become a great nation in decline. that's expressed in the turnout you saw yesterday andnd particularly in our campaign the last seven to ten days, the surge of people including those not registered republican who rally around our campaign in a state where ted cruz, i congratulate him on his victory, this is thelace the campaign was built in and h put all that infrastructure in there and worked it really hard and earned this victory but we feel so good abou the growth we've had and at that will translate to in new hampshire and after that south calina and we're just credibly grateful and eited about all this. >> the road continues, it began there in iowa and whenn it comes to those who consider themselves very conservative, ted cruz overwhelmingly i think it was 41%, let me get this right, 44% supported the voters last night, they said he was very
that was almosost three times as much as you with 15% and you said r recent i an interview you talked about ted cruz and you said the lie his wle campaign is built ons that he's the ly conservative.. 's absurd. that's what you said. you care to elaborate on that? >> sure, i mean, ted's who campaign is built on this n/tion that he's the only one that's a pu conservative and everyone else is a rhino or sellout. it's not accurate. his accurate is one of calculation. you see it on the issues whether on immigration where he favored legagalizing people here illegally. now he c claims he never did. whether it's on nional defense where he talks tough on isis but ted cruz voted for a budget, thehe only budget he's ever voted for is a budget that brags about cutting defense spending. so it's on issue after issue. you know, he goes, he criticizes new york values but has raised millions of dollars from new york city. so tse are the sorts of things that voters will start learning about and as they do i think a lot of these numbers will begin to continue to change.
rubio, are comment about your speech last ght. how strong it t s, how optimistic it was a a how reminiscent it was of what barack obama said in iowa, in fact, his speech writer tweeted tothat effect. what were you trying to convey in that speech last night? >> well, i meaean we just began by reminding everybody thatasn't supposed to happen last night. they told us at the b beginning of this race i shouldn't even run, that it wasn't my turn, i neede to wait in linine. there were other people who had been a aund longer that we needed tooait in line behind and i think what you saw lasas night in the results, not just with us but with donald and, of f cour, with ted is the republican party is being very clear, the grassroots, thi is no time for waiting or patience, this is a time for urgency. that's how i began last night, grateful to the people of iowa but i want people to be realistic about our challenges but optimistic about our future. if we do what needs to be done, the greatest days in american historyre withihi our reach.
have to explain to our children why they did not inherit the great country that was left for us. senator m!rco rubio, again, congratulations last night. we'll see you there in new mpshire. ththank youor jning us, senator. >> thks, robin. thank you. >> george. >> thank yoyou, robin. let's talk about it now with matt dowd and donna brazile and talk about the republicans first, matthew dowd. coming intoo the first votes in iowa, donald trump dominating all the headline all the dialogue for so many months, gets beat by ted cruz and the big question is, he even said it himself if he doesn't win it's compleletely meaningless, once he loses can he recover? >> well, i think the great thing about this presidential process is we've known through the years is you're tested in it and can you meet the test or don't you meet the te? now is an opportunity but all a concern for donald trump. he has to meet the test. nald tmp right now has to perform over the next weekek he has to win new hampsre or the race for him is over if he doesn't win new hampshire. if he wins new hampshire and conducts himself during the course of this especially at the
hampshire will put him back up as the front-runner but he what is to win new hampshire. >> no question about that. meanwhile, if you look, donna brazile, at this republican party, donald trump, a businessman, you have two firsterm latino senators. this is a brand-new republica party. the democrats will be facingg it. >> absolutely right. look, donald trump made the sale but he couldn't close the deal. and i think going forward, dold trump is -- donald trtrump will be forced to run a more traditional campaign try to do more retail. not all these big rallies flying in and flying out. voters clearly would likeeo get to know donald trump a little better but when you look at what happened yesterd in iowa, it was reallyn exciting moment for first-time caucusgoers a a came in the republican process endecided they wanted to stick with somebody w who had more tradional values, ted cruz. the democratic race was a race of passion, the passion that bernie sanders is showing on the campaign trail versus practicality, electability. it was a close race, i still believe at the end of the day i
delegates but those of us who are iiders but hillary clinton will probabl get the most deletes, but bernie sanders has -- >> ihink allhree republicans right now have a problemic path ahead. donald trump has to win. he's now suffered his first loss. ted crcruz has t show he can win outside of a small caucus state where evangelicals dinated the scene and marco rubio has to find his first victory. a series of thirds and seconds won't do it until you find your fit win, so i think right now three. >> all the other republicans out now? >> no, i think there's still an opportunity for somebody, probably john kasic in new hampshire to sort of supersede and move , up ahead of marco rubio. there is a shot and he made a smart move. didn't stay in iowa. he spent the whole weekend in new hampshire so there's ang outside shot john kasich. >> real quickly, you're right abouthe delegates and hilla clinton has a lead in the superdelegates but will face the question why can't't she put ay bernie sanders, 7474ear-old
>> 68% of caucusgoers described themselves as liberal and bernie sanders hahad an ee with those who are very, vy liberal. going forwd, she has to reset her campaign to be more like a movement, not a traditional campaign for something that galvanizes young people and those who are still interested in change. >> okay, donna, matt, thanks very much. "your voice, your vote" including that b b republican debate this saturdayy nightt 8:00, 7:00 right here at abc. now let's go to amy with today's other top stories with the latest on the zika virus. >> reporter: the world health organization has now declared the zika vis a global health emergency and that will allow more money and research to focus on the outbreak which is linked now to thousands of brain maged newborns. the cdc has added four countries to thi map of are where travelers risk beinginfefeed. they include coast ka ryka, nicaragua, curacao a american samoa.

the's a reason why evybybody's mother always says it's not what you say, it's howow you say it. val is kno for tough lovepartners but he's being sued for defamation and emotional injury reminng us a quick meme can have lastg impact. can you come out tonight >> reporter: he's known for his saucy moves and once winning the mirror ball with rumerillis on "dancing with the stars" but this morning, val chmerkovskiy is in legal hot water r sharing this meme with his 300,000 plus fans on facebook. the text reading, l letting your kid become obese should be considered child abuse. the girl's family now suing chmerkovskiy for $6 million saying he humiliated a girl with down syndrome who's at much higher rick for obesity. >> and since then over -- close to half a million followers of this credit have apparently viewed this same image. > reporter: according to the
old when the photo was taken unbeknownst to her at a baseball game. the photographer also being sued by the family posting itt to flickr with the caption, everything that's wrong w with america back in 2008. >> skyl's olderister was surfing on her social media facebook page and happened upon a site by valentin chmerkovskiy where he had used thihis image o her little sister and she was shocked and surprised. reporter: the backlash on social media against chmerkovskiy was swift. one person writing, not cool. i agree with the fact that parents need to encourage healthing eating but you don't have to put down this child to do it. >> reporter: while others are standing by the dance pro using #isupportval. >> he was not aware t girl had down's syndrome and took it down before there was any legal action. he never meant to offend anyone. he was trying to sta a conversation about what's
twitter to plead h case. one day you'll hear my side of the story, if anyone will still be listening. the family is not only suing the photographer but cbsnews.com for reposting it. now who is known for visiting sick kids in the hospital has a lot of supporters online. he later posted i have no decide to discriminate or shame. he says he just wantedo spark a conversation about chilood obesity and that is something he very much did. guys. >> he just sparked another conversation. all right, juju, thank you. going to bring back dan abrams. so heard about the lawsuit. does the family have a case. >> it's not easy. first of all this picture was taken allegedly at a game, right, so she doesn't have an expectation of privacy at the game.

real shotith regard to invasion of privy. they will but the question is, intentional infliction of emotional distres is one of the allegations here. >> how do you proveve damages to the amount of $6 million. >> first of all the conduct to win on that kind of claim has t be so outrageous, because it's not -- you could always claim something is intentional infliction of emotion distress because it's mean and because i didn't like it and it made me unhappy. it has to go to another level to be abl to be that tort. damages are really interesting questions because when you're talking about a child you are"you're so vain" vain"'s not talking about someonone who has lost wages or opportunities for jobs, et cecetera, it's really just the mew millation factor. even if thewere to win what is a difficult lawsuit damages would also be a tough thing for them to prove. >> as i said val is sparking a conversation about can you ever beued for reposting something?
that could get you into a lot of trouble. >> yes, you got to remember that social media you're effective effeivy a publisher now. you are now publishing the same way anyone else is publishing information out there. so if you say something thats liable louse or slapdzerus your defense can't be, well, it's my facebookk ge, i can say whatever i want. you n say whatever you want and someone can sue you for what you said on there. same thing goes with regard to sharing something. if you are sending it out, you are plishing it, you can be held responsible f for what is in that -- >> even if you're reposting it. >> even if you're reposting, you're still the publisher. >> all right. just pause before you hit that send button. >> you got to think about it. this is serious stuff although i don't think they'll have a particularly strong lawsuit here. >> thank you, lara. thank you. now to the game on everybody's minds, super bowl 5-0. all this week wre showing you exclusivee sneak peeks at the ads that will make as many headlines

where the whole world was ptivivated since the kennedy assasassinatio it really took me -- so that's why i really couldn't -- i didn't engage in the trial during the middle porras ofit, the year-l-long trial. >> my dad was a football player and coach and he was compelled by thisnd kept us informed every day. >> i wish i had that. >> you and i'm telling you, both of you and the entire cast, you just really capturered that moment. recaptured it. >> thank you. >> i want to play a bit. your character, bob shapiro going up against marcia clark play. >> where is your client. >> i'm sorry. he's with a few doctors. he's very depressed. >> yeah, well, he should be depressed. he killed two people. he's going to prison so what is your locatition. >> here's one of the doctors now. >> you had to be -- i don't want to say talked into this but you were reluctant to take the role initially.

i feel this way. well, let's talk about it. we need to talk. we need to talk. >>ou know, each episode surprised the actors. we learned something every new script we were amazed and enlightened and i think at the end of the ten episodes y you'll understand why the verdict was what it was and you will be enlightened by all the small things that were happening t that you never could have had access to that wasn't admitted -- add miserable into court. the furman tapes, the bickering between the lawyers, the fight for fame, you know, the legal system being challeed, i mean, wow, you know. a lot of it. >> little bit of bickering. just a little. >> well, and courtney if you don't mind i'll ask "grease!"

it's a male dominated world. so what may surprise some of y to learn that a woman is behind it all. >> s stephaniecmahon. >> fighting both inside the ring and out. for over 5 years stephan mcmahon daughter of vince mcmahon is at the helm of transforming the network as the company's chief brand officer. in a field that has been dominated by men what do you as a woman bring to the tablble? >> i think what women bring to the table is perspective and oftentimes women feel insecure li they don't belong at the table with men and why? is your opinion any less valuable than anybody elelse's? no. and i think that the best way to really come to the best decision is to have thahat diversity in the room. >> wwe'ss mission -- >> reporter:he earned itin the boardroom. >> i would get the food and the coffee. >> reporte working her way up from a receptionist. isis there something you felt you
