8:01 am
pover bradenton beach for pinstance. pvery mild. pin fact our current temperature pat tampa international already p67 degrees. pwe should easily make it up at pleast until mid 70s for high ptoday's with mixture of clouds pand a sunshine. ptomorrow, warmest day of the pweekemergency we're going to pfollow that with some rain. pmaybe thunderstorms on thursday. pmore on that in just a few pminutes. plet's check those roads. pstarting to get a little bit pbusy dave. pskyfox checking out hernando pcounty. pthis is overhead 75 northbound. pjust before you get to the state proad 50 exit. pthere's actually a vehicle you pcan see overturned over a pconstruction barrier. pand actually crews have that pleft lane blocked off. pso is cause something jams pheading in that northbound pdirection just before you get to pcortez boulevard exit. pand so we're seeing delays bf 5 pminutes or so. pyou will want to plan extra time poutdoor let you know if we get pany new details on that. pthis crash we're following, pcarrying into this one.
8:02 am
pacid knee washer road eastbound pand westbound lane blockage preally i don't think sensor are pdoing delays justice we're pseeing some fairly significant pdelays. parrest going want to give pyourself plenty of extra time or pavoid that taking sydney road pgood eastbound westbound palternatea couple incidents to ptouch on along 75 and state road p52. pfirst of all seeing very, very pheavy delays mostly eastbound pwestbound direction as well. pcrew working on something in proad a patch of some sort along p52 alternately traffic along one plane you will want to leave at pleast 20 minutes if you have to phead eastbound 75 southbound a pstate road 52 a new temporary pexit about a mile north of the pold one. p>> all right vanessa thank you. p>> well iowa caulks are just a pfew hours away. pthereby true test for the pcandidates. pit's the first major electoral residential election. ressure is mounting for pcandidates. pfox 13 political editor craig atrick has been keeping an eye pon things.
8:03 am
pmorning. pyeah, good morning craig. pyou know that the candidates phave had to really pick up their pground game here. pcaucus are not something we know pwell here in florida. pthis has to be real town hall pfeeling candidates have had to pget up close and personal with pvoters. p>> well they have. pwe haven't seen that in closing phours because the events were so acked. pyou had hundreds some cases pthousands of people pouring out pdoors or winding upstairs just pto get in. pfor course of several months it pwas one-on-one, this retail olitics. pthis is largely meeting with eople at the kitchen table. pthat's one of the reasons why piowa goes first. arties want iowa to serve as pfolks group where other larger pstates like florida in that psense cannot. pbut ground game is key. pbecause you're looking for psupporters who won't just psupport you go into caucus night pinto presinthd and speak up for pyou. pand a bet that some of the eople in that room will be ersuadable. pthat's why among other things pyou can't always trust polls
8:04 am
p>> talking about how close this pthing is and how rough politics pcan be gloves really came off pyesterday with trump attacking pted cruz especially on his preligion. p>> yes. pi think it does hurt ted cruz to pcertain extent you to pay pattention specifically trump pmade knows remarks. pmost candidates are focussing on pcentral and eastern iowa where pthe agree greatest cluster of pvoters are. pyou have donald trump very pspecifically working pnorthwestern iowa. pvery sparse. pyou don't have big populations pin these areas but you still recincts by and far away most pconservative part the state pwhere you greatest concentration pevangelical. pclearly strategy to what donald ptrump is doing going after same prural counties rick santorum ptook four years ago and making phis case on that point, yes. pit could hurt ted cruz at least
8:05 am
p>> craig we talk about at polls pa lot. pthe des moines register just preleased its poll you say is palways a very accurate thing to plook at trump in first cruz in psecond rubio in third. phow numbers have played outer pfor months now. pdo you expect any up yets this pfar from a done deal. p>> well it's a game of pexpectations. pand in that sense i think we pcould see a surprise in at prepublican turn out tonight. plook for marco rubio to make a pmove. pyou look at the polls not just pfor numbers but are for the pmovement. pand movement appears to be a pfavoring marco rubio. pmeanwhile, we've seen ted cruz pslip a little bit. pso if someone is to out perform pexpectations tonight, i think pit's a good bet it is not pnecessarily reflected in rojection model that is person pmay in fact be marco rubio. pthen to democrats. p>> it's just too close, isn't pit? p>> well the polling is very pclose. pthe projection model 538 still pfares hilary clinton i see a
8:06 am
pfor bernie sanders. plook for bernie sanders to make pmove particularly in those pstorms move in florida from west pto east that could suppress turn pout in areas more favorable to phillary clinton. pmeanwhile to the east and p>> of the state you have a lot pof college students and younger pvoters who are very passionate pabout fwern sanders. pif in fact they turn out for him pas they say, and if hillary pclinton's email controversy praises questions and some voters pminds, i think that bernie psanders could pull off a stunner plater tonight. p>> and you know the other thing piowa a must win. pclearly it's good for momentum pof whoever will win tonight. p>> yes but you have to win iowa pelection? piowa? p>> jimmy carter set model why piowa has important and has been psince 1976 rick santorum prepublican winner he didn't get pthat far, mike huckeby he didn't pget that far. pnot necessarily prey addicter of
8:07 am
pimportant because the polls and pother states are not static. pthey will move based on results pin early states. pof course iowa is first state of pall. p>> all right. pokay, craig. pthank you. p>> thank you. p>> and so it begins. plong road to white house. pup next new hampshire primary pnext tuesday. pwashington state republicans and pnevada democrats caucus on 20th. pnevada republican haves to wait pin the 23rd though south pcarolina republican primary is palso the 20th. pfollowed by democrats a week plater. psuper tuesday is march 1st. pthat's when 15 states pterritories will head to polls. pflorida primaries are pmarch 15th. pelection day as you know ptuesday, november 8th. p>> 8:07 right now. pit has people asking how could pthis happen. ptwo teens cut a hole in a fence pand escaped a juvenile detention pcenter. pshayla reeves is live outside pfalkenberg academy. pany closer to finding these pkids?
