maybe this season, with temperatures moderating back into the 20's and 30's. shaina: sounds good. we'll start with commitment 2016 news this morning, the democratic presidential candidates faced off last night in their final debate, just two weeks before the iowa caucuses. elizabeth: the nbc news debate comes as polls show hillary clinton and bernie sanders are locked in very close races in iowa and new hampshire. sally kidd has more from washington. mr. sanders: that is nonsense. ms. clinton: to tear it up and start over again. sally: the debate brought some of the sharpest exchanges yet among the candidates, with senator bernie sanders touting his newly released universal health care plan. mr. sanders: right now, what we have to deal with is the fact that 29 million still have no health insurance. ms. clinton: i want us to defend and build on the affordable care act and improve it. sally: the candidates also mixed it up on guns. ms. clinton: he voted against the brady bill 5 times, he voted for what we call the charleston
mr. sanders: i think clinton knows what she says is disingenuous. sally: clinton took on sanders for reversing his support for a law that shields gun manufacturers from lawsuits. mr. sanders what i said is we : will re-look at it. we are going to re look at it and i will support stronger provisions. mr. o'malley they've both been this issue. i'm the only candidate on this stage who's passed comprehensive gun safety legislation. sally: and sparks flew over who would be toughest on wall street. ms. clinton: we're at least having a vigorous debate about reigning in wall street, republicans want to give them more power. mr. sanders i think it's time to : put the government back on their backs. mr. o'malley i have a plan that : puts cops back on wall street. alyx: the democrats will not have their next debate until february 11. that's after the voting is over
there has been some criticism regarding the timing of the democratic debates. elizabeth: the last one was the saturday before christmas, and this one is on mlk weekend. o'malley and sanders have both accused the dnc for doing this intentionally to ensure minimal viewing. the dnc denies those claims. our crews caught up with the urbandale democrats debate watch party at the beer house last night and the metro. the below zero temperatures didn't keep them from cheering on their favorite candidates. most of the people we spoke to say, as the days prior to the caucuses dwindle, supporters are staying loyal to their candidates. >> i feel like the other side is stealing his thunder sometimes. they say they want income equality. that's bernie sanders. that is what he is. that is what i am for. >> we're so much stronger as democrats obama's plan makes so much more sense than what i've heard from bernie's plan. both plans are better than what the republicans are offering.
are really hard. national polls don't really mean anything here. it is all in turnout and who shows up in what precinct, and how many delegates that precinct that's. i do wish we could get more national press. shaina: as we get closer and closer to the caucuses, candidates are really turning their attention to iowa. we're now just two weeks away, and kcci's alyx sacks has a preview on the campaign trail right here in the state. alyx: shaina, iowa is going to be swarming with candidates the rest of the month. this week alone, is jam packed with presidential hopefuls. let's focus on the front runners . on the democratic side hillary , clinton is back in iowa. she will be in toledo today at the civic center at 6:45. on wednesday she will be at simpson college. then, on thursday clinton will again have some star power hand in hand with her. demi lovato will join her on the university of iowa campus in iowa city.

morning garage fire in urbandale wakes up the neighborhood. it happened at 2817 78th street. fire officials on scene say the flames were contained to a detached garage, and no one was inside at the time so luckily no injuries. frigid overnight temperatures did freeze the closest fire hydrant, so crews had to use another one from down the street. officials tell us the garage is a total loss, but damage to the house is minimal. the cause of the fire is still being investigated. elizabeth: a community is mourning the loss of three young children and their mother this morning. they were killed in a fire early sunday on the 300 block of beech street in boxholm, about an hour northwest of des moines. the victims have been identified as 27-year-old amber sorenson, 9-year-old riley sorenson. 6-year-old autumn sorenson and 4-year-old brayden sorenson. their father was at work at the time of the fire. when boone county fire officials arrived on scene, the home was already fully engulfed. they also had to battle frigid

again, pushing our country back into that kind of a contentious debate i think is the wrong direction. weijia: former maryland governor was also on the stage, but struggled to get a word in. >> i don't think there has been a single debate where people left saying they heard too much from martin o'malley. weijia: a new poll gives clinton a big lead nationwide over both democratic rivals, but sanders was unimpressed, and quickly mentioned he is winning in the new hampshire polls and is tied in iowa, where voters are set to caucus in just two weeks. weijia jiang, cbs news, charleston, south carolina. elizabeth: bernie sanders was the top candidate discussed on both twitter and facebook,
