7:03 am
room. news debate. >> when you're treated badly, you have to stick up for your rights. and we have to stick up for our country when we're being mistreated. remember that. >> reporter: defying critics who called his move a mistake. inviting two underdog candidates to speak. trump comparing the crowd and his fund-raiser to the academy awards. touting $6 million raised. across town, trump's absence gave opponents an opening to deliver their best one-liners. >> i'm a maniac and everyone on this stage is stupid, fat and ugly. and, ben, you're a terrible surgeon. now that we've gotten the donald trump portion out of the way. >> i kind of miss donald trump. he was a teddy bear to me. >> reporter: the debate offered a glimpse into what the campaign may have looked like without the unpredictable front runner. ted cruz, number two on the polls, became number one target
7:04 am
>> you've been willing to say and do anything to get votes. >> and that's an authenticity problem. everybody knows that he is not as perfect as him. >> the last four questions have been, rand, attack ted. marco, attack ted. chris, attack ted. jeb, attack ted. gosh, if you ask one more mean question, i may have to leave the stage. >> reporter: after jeb bush announced he won't even be in iowa for caucus night. >> couldn't run because it wasn't popular. >> reporter: he exchanged barbs over hit issues with marco rubio. >> you changed your position on immigration. you used to support a path to citizenship. >> so did you. >> well -- >> so did you, marco. >> reporter: while chris christie lashed out at the senators on stage. washington to english dictionary converter. stop the bull. >> reporter: ben carson highlighted his unique credentials. >> i've had more 2:00 a.m. phone calls than everybody here put

7:06 am
beef that trump got on that stage. that was an opportunity for a couple of the front runners to come out and go at trump. he wasn't there to respond. they chose not to do it. other than the stuff at the top, it was a light touch. if you're trump, you're sitting here going, well, this was great. ted cruz and marco rubio, the two guys chasing me, ended were the targets of everybody else. one thing i noticed is without trump there, three people who trump has just obliterated over the last six months in attacks, ben carson, jeb bush and rand paul, all three of them had their best debate. >> chuck, people thought ted cruz specifically, because he's running close with trump in iowa, would have a target on his back. how did he handle the pressure last night? >> i think he struggled with it early, in particular. he was the one getting a lot of incoming. i think you could tell he liked sharing that with donald trump, without trump there.
7:07 am
testy at times. his jokes fell a little flat. his little tweaking of the moderators didn't seem to go over well. look, i think he's still the guy that is the number two guy here, but he didn't do anything, i think, to go and grab trump. maybe even come out on top. if anything, rubio may be nipping at his heels a bit. this may be a closer three-way race than we thought. >> chuck todd, we'll be watching. you'll have more from iowa this sunday on "meet the press," including a conversation with senator ted cruz. hillary clinton and bernie sanders are making their final pushes ahead of iowa's caucuses. des moines, iowa for us this morning. >> good morning, willie. the democratic side is also heating up. bernie sanders goes after hillary clinton for her fundraising and what he calls her ties to wall street. >> reporter: bernie sanders is on the attack.

7:11 am
during that time, the fbi says agent and state troopers were telling the occupants to surrender. instead, the truck drove on. one minute later, it veered left to avoid a roadblock, nearly hitting an agent. finicum exited, hands in the air at first. the fbi says on at least two occasions, he reached his right hand toward a jacket pocket. that's when finicum was shot and killed. authorities say he had a loaded semiautomatic handgun in the pocket. >> as the video shows, it was a reckless action that resulted in the consequences. >> reporter: finicum's supporters think he was not reaching for his gun. three weeks earlier, the arizona rancher said he'd rather die than go to jail. >> i have no intention of spending any of my days in a concrete box. >> reporter: during the confrontation, five occupiers were arrested, including the
