separate themselves from the pack. steve handelsman is live in las vegas to show us how they all did tonight. steve? >> reporter: thanks, good evening. americans are concerned about isis. worried about terror and demanding solutions. and this mostly collegial debate here in las vegas tonight ahead of the holidays seemed to reflect that concern. >> these republican candidates. >> it's the first time the republican candidates have faced off since the terrorist attacks in paris and san bernardino. the first since ted cruz took the lead in iowa polls and donald trump rose to a wider lead in national polls calling for a ban on muslims entering the u.s. >> people like what i say. people respect what i say. >> reporter: trumpowed tonight to deport any new syrian refugees. >> if obama has brought some to this country, they're going. they're gone. >> reporter: jeb bush took on trump. >> donald, you know, is great at the one-liners. but he's a chaos candidate.
and he would be a chaos president. he would not be the commander in chief we need. >> he has failed in this campaign. it's been a total disaster. nobody cares. >> reporter: a big concern is stopping isis here and in syria. ted cruz and trump agreed on a much bigger air war. >> you would carpet bomb where isis is, not a city, but the location of the troops. >> reporter: trump would kill account families of isis fighters. >> they may not care much about their lives but they do care, believe it or not, about their families' lives. >> reporter: ben carson want u.s. troops to sfit. >> we've got a phobia about boots on the ground. >> chris christie want a no-fly zone. syria. >> you fly in, it applies to you. why i, we would shoot down the planes of rush yags pilots. >> there was a clash cruz and rubio deporting migrants without papers. an intense debate with a month and a half till voters do the talking. there are two more republican

said steele. he sure looks angry or speaking of fiorina. she. no, we want to leave people feeling good. that i think is what a lot of these candidates tried to do here in las vegas. >> steve, thank you. >> new at 11:00, an tonight, traffic is moving once again on the outer loop of the beltway near route 7 in fairfax county. take a look what happened during rush hour tonight. what you're looking at is nearly 5,000 pounds of marble counter top spill off a tractor-trailer. the marble just got cleaned up in the last half hour. also new tonight, eight people on the southwest airlines plane went to the hospital after it slid off a taxiway in nashville. southwest says the plane slid onto the grassy area while landing. 138 people were on board the nashville fire department says all the injuries were minor. it's not clear why the plane slid off the pavement. we've learned that los angeles will reopen more than 900 schools tomorrow, but the fallout continues over today
as decision to abruptly shut them down and send mill yom oon coz of students, teachers and families cram bling. >> this is not our decision to make it it is our decision to support. >> well, that decision came from the superintendent after someone e-mailed a few school board members and threatened to attack students. tonight the police chief says it mentioned explosives, ak-47s and isis but appears to be a hoax. a few hours later new york city got a similar threat from the same server but thought it wasn't credible enough to close schools. bill bratton ripped l.a. for disrupting so many families' day over a phony threat. and today his counterpart called his response irresponsible. >> i want to follow up on something the mayor said. we do our best to share information. when this decision was made, they had no information to share. they weren't aware of their threat. >> thousands of officers and deputies inspected more than

suffered through years of construction while the tracks were laid wondered if this public transit starved neighborhood would ever see the benefit. others wondered if the streetcar would prove to be useful. >> just because it's such a short distance. it's basically from here to there and doesn't really make my life any easier. >> it's nice to have something new to the neighborhood. >> reporter: here's the plan. 6:00 tomorrow morning, the streetcars will start running on their regular schedule. they won't take passengers after a three-week run of doing that, are we are told we will be able to pay our money, get on that streetcar and head down h street. live in northeast washington, jackie bensen, news4. >> thank you. a deadlocked jury will try to come to a consensus tomorrow up in baltimore. the group's deciding the fate of that police officer charged in the death of freddie gray. today the jury told a judge they couldn't come to an agreement on a verdict. judge barry williams told them to keep deliberating. if they still can't come to a
