8:00 pm
take down the presumed front runner on the democratic side. so he's watching this more closely than anyone and the clinton campaign predicted a win in this state. so we continue to watch that side. >> it is 11:00 p.m. on the east coast. we have a winner on the rin side, ted cruz is the winner and we're awaiting his remarks but the big indecision at this moment is the democratic side. hillary clinton 50% to 49%, perhaps a little ticking up of the vote total. let's try to get a breakdown. >> we're going to go live to our campaign cowboys, space cowboys, it's odd. they know what they're doing and chris wallace is in charge of
8:01 pm
them. >> in charge? yes. i'm here with my lion whip and ready to try to handle my tigers. joe trippi where are the democratic precincts we haven't heard from yet? >> mostly in the college we call it college counties of johnson county and story county, they're pretty much all in. and bernie sanders is beating hillary clinton in those two counties but not nearly by the margin thought of. >> the precincts are in areas that tend to be tilting towards clinton and not sanders? >> yes. if you look at this, and it's going to be close, i think hillary clinton is going to end up eeking this out and winning it eventually because they're tending to be areas that she's
8:02 pm
winning already. >> carl, do you agree with that? >> yes. i do, yes. he's got woodburyçó and a littl bit in lind county, but des moines, polk county is 82% out. it looks to me this margin of her three tenths of one percent ain't going to grow a lot, but it's going to grow enough. >> we'll go to ted cruz as soon as he starts speaking. is this now a three-man race. >> it used to be you got three tickets out of iowa. there is a chance to pop up and surprise in new hampshire but this does change the dynamic of the rags. ted cruz devoted a lot of time, new hampshire didn't must attention and it's unclear, that is less church, that to say less
8:03 pm
evangelical than iowa. short of the winner's cup, his speech is i love you and i won't forget that i came here and i might buy a farm here. there was no compelling message. rubio talked about a positive agenda, which struck notes of nationalism, patriotism, emphasis on economic growth. he intends to make the most of his third place. >> there is a thought there is this establishment, quote, lane of rubio, kasich and christie and bush. does, the fact he's 22% or 23%, does to give him a big edge? >> in new hampshire, mccain didn't play in iowa and eight days later dealt us a 19 point loss in new hampshire. in new hampshire, they're p
8:04 pm
parochial. has he spent enough time in iowa? the question is he didn't have the big rallies going back months. he came in here at the late and swooped up, make his sense of timing will be good. >> i've got to say, joe, watching rubio on that stage, he didn't win. cruz won. but i've got a thing for a democratic party that wants to talk about republicans as the rich, white, noninclusive, not minorities to see that beautiful hispanic family up there on the stage, hispanic american family that h th that. >> rubio has been the one democrats are most worried about. he looked like he was declaring victory the way he went down there. i think he's the big story
8:05 pm
tonight. we expected cruz and trump to be in a fight for first and second. i know there was a feeling rubio might be coming on, but i don't think anyone expected to see him, you know climbing into the 20s and be as close to trump as trump was to cruz. that is a pretty amazing accomplishment. >> he's 1.4% behind trump. >> let's talk about those, let's assume you're right about the precincts and that clinton wins, but less than a point, is that a victory for her or sanders? >> a win is a win in iowa for her. i think sanders, really needed to win iowa and new hampshire, have both of the wins going into south carolina to try to break out beyond white progressives he's dominating with right now. i don't think he's going to accomplish that with her. she made the stop. she won the state and if this continues the way it looks like it's going to go. she did it with a pretty big
8:06 pm
turn out. and a lot of excitement, energy. this was supposed to benefit sanders. i think, you know, her holding on and winning it there, she's got to win south carolina. she's probably going to lose new hampshire. >> and quickly, carl? >> yes. absolutely. she won. if she lost this would have been a two-fer, lost here and having one here no matter how narrowly. she went on television and said we've knocked on 125,000 doors this weekend. i suspect she's going to thank everyone of the people that knocked on the doors because with this margin, that is where it came from. the superior organization of the mook, her campaign manager, robe mook. >> and michael hailey, around the state, has done a fantastic job. >> thank you. cowboys. >> thank you. it's important to point out before heading to ed henry we
8:07 pm
will not know the vote total on the democratic side because they do it differently. they elect delegates to the county conventions and we don't know the total number, but we can report the turn out was north of 175,000, that is huge. bernie sanders might lose this because his delegate count was smaller in places like he had a concentration in college towns but across the statew3 didn't he the count that perhaps hillary clinton has. you see it's essentially tied with 638 to 634, that is tight. let's go to ed henry now, more from clinton campaign headquarters. a little nervous there, ted? >> they are nervous, on one hand, on the other hand, they're calling for hillary clinton and cheering for calls. i'm checking as i'm talking to you, iowa democratic party and
8:08 pm
it's closer than we're saying. important to note, i just spoke to a democratic official who said there is no recount if this ends up being this tight because this is a party run system. it's not a state run system like you'd have in a general election. so the final result as certified will be the final result. bottom line is that there is going to be a race. a race to see who can claim victory. the clinton camp is telling me they believe they've won. the sanders camp, undoubtedly going to say if it's this close this, is a moral viblthry for sanders and on to new hampshire. bret? >> and no recount possible? >> no recount possible. in a general election, something this tight might trigger a recount. it's not going to be counted. >> ed, what is the hold up? why don't we know what the final tally is? >> well, i am checking into the iowa democratic website as we talk. i've been told by some officials
8:09 pm
here part of what they're waiting on is the counties, caucus sites are likely to have new registrants, new voters. if that is the case it takes longer to process it. now, as we're talking i just said hillary clinton was winning by.2%. now, winning by.4%. the bottom line here is this a nail biter and worse than the clinton camp expected. they're going to come out here and say we won, it's over eight years after a humiliating defeat here. remember, hillary clinton came in third in iowa in 2008. they're going to say a win is a win is a win. in fact, over an hour ago, as you reported megyn, the clinton camp told me we believe we've won. ta was before any of these final votes were in. we still don't know it this minute, who won. the bottom line is that the
8:10 pm
clinton camp is signalling they're going to declare victory and you can bet the sanders camp is going to have more to say about that. >> she just doubled her lead. >> and keeping our eyes on ted cruz's campaign headquarters. we're told he's there and in a holding room. we expect to hear from ted cruz in just a moment. first we want to go to james rosen, following bernie sanders tonight. james? >> megyn, these numbers have intensified in this race that tightened up just as ed is saying, you check results in realtime, every few seconds it changes. there is, at this point, hillary clinton is below 50%, and there is two candidates are separated by.1%.2%, back down to.1%. there is about 300 people now, they're fired up.
8:11 pm
they regard this as a victory no matter what the final tally is. not least because the two candidates will emerge from iowa with roughly the same number of delegates. but because bernie sanders had so many points throughout the caucus contest had been written off for dead. you'll recall when former secretary clinton testified before the benghazi committee, then, after the first democratic debate it was said again and again she had this nomination locked up. tonight a 74-year-old socialist senator from vermont has given hillary clinton the very personification of the democratic establishment in this country, the scare of her life. these supporters are eating it up. every time we see bernie sanders come up on the big screen behind me, this place goes just alive with electricity. and they can't wait to see their man and see him proclaim victory regardless of the final totals
8:12 pm
here, tonight. >> james, i'm wondering if there is thought in the sanders campaign about perhaps regretting not going down the e-mail scandal lane faster. he did talk about it being a legal process and something that is very serious. but as you remember, the first debate, he said "i really don't give a damn about her e-mails". >> he was asked if his decision not to run negative ads attacking hillary clinton by name meant that he in essence didn't do everything he could to win, that he left something on the table. he rejected that idea, saying he was not into smashing other candidates and the people of iowa didn't want to see the two candidates ripping each other apart. senator sanders has indirectly been raising the e-mail issue more frequently in recent days. his comment that americans are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails was misunderstood. he wasn't saying we shouldn't be
8:13 pm
talking about your e-mails. what he was really saying is the american people, the democratic party deserve a nominee for whom that is not an issue, and i'm that man. >> he didn't warm to the attack until recent days, james, thank you. >> just want to talk about the numbers on the g.o.p. side. the record turn out we saw in iowa was stunning tonight. over 180,000 for the g.o.p. according to the state chairman, jeff kauffman. that is 122,0004 years ago. they're talking about records at 150. it winds up at 180. we're going to check back in with bill hemmer, joins us from the microsoft caucus center. what's happening over on the democratic side, bill? >> good evening, again to you. i was just talking to the counsel who had a major dust up four years ago. the system did not work in 2012
8:14 pm
but tonight he tells me record turn out, as just mentioned, 180,000. it could go higher than that in the end. that shatters the record of 2012. you have a lot of enthusiasm on the republican side, a dozen candidates, all of the attention from donald trump. driving the level of enthusiasm. he calls it a huge success for iowa and the candidates and talking about this enthusiasm gap on behalf of republicans. so watch that story line. as for the mechanics of the operation, so far, only because it's not official, not all in just yet, on the democratic side, and final numbers on republicans, technology worked. and megyn, this is a first for voting in america. they established software over the summer, they set up apps for both parties and distributed
8:15 pm
1600 precincts, 3200 precinct captains between the two parties, extraordinary numbers. an amazing effort here in iowa to so far get it close to right on the caucus vote tonight. they're considering this two for two so far, clinton and sanders going at it. less than a point separates them. we'll see what checks out here from story county and now, out on the west side of the state in woodbury county, sanders has a lead out there with 81% reporting. so still, there are votes out there. we'll see whether or not what the clinton votes are saying holds and whether or not she, indeed wins here in iowa. that is where the drama is for the moment. for the republicans, as you can imagine they're quite pleased with the turnout and operation. a resurrection of sorts, you can
8:16 pm
say for the folks here in the hawk eye state. back to you. >> just looking at our update now from the official iowa website they're saying the difference between clinton and sanders is.08%, a lead growing for her, a lead in her favor, growing just a bit. >> we're looking live at the ted cruz campaign headquarters. you see ted cruz's father on stage, you saw congressman steve king, all of those figures that have been backing the cruz campaign, we're told, any moment, senator ted cruz will come out. as we mentioned before, record setting. ted cruz with the most votes of any candidate, ever, in the iowa caucuses. more than 46,000 votes for ted cruz. so all of the talk about the record-setting turn out going towards donald trump it appears that the record-setting turn out went to ted cruz.
8:17 pm
>> and the evangelicals did as well, congressman steve king was on the show last night talking about what he thought would happen. and he took issue with donald trump at an appearance on the go in front of a group of evangelicals saying words you were not allowed to say on the campus, to a group of evangelicals. he was not persuaded of trump's holding up the bible that he had knowledge of it. he thought that would resonate to the negative. and you can see he's been out there campaigning for ted cruz as has glenn beck. we haven't discussed endorsement. sarah palin who was beloved by so many evangelicals, endorsed donald trump. but then, glenn beck came out and endorsed ted cruz.
8:18 pm
both have been campaigning for their candidates for days now. >> i'll yuft say the negative ads against cruz really stacked up in recent days. as you see the senator arriving there, let's listen in. [ applause ] [ applause ]
8:19 pm
[ applause ] [ cheering ].
8:20 pm
>> god bless the great state of iowa. let me first of all say, to god be the glory. tonight, is a victory for the grass roots. tonight is a victory for courageous conservatives across iowa and all across this great
8:21 pm
nation. tonight the state of iowa has spoken. iowa has sent notice that the republican nominee and the next president of the united states will not be chosen by the media. will not be chosen by the washington establishment. will not be chosen by the lobbyists. but will be chosen by the most incredible, powerful force where all sovereignty resides in our nation, by we, the people, the
8:22 pm
american people. tonight, thanks to the incredible hard work of everyone gathered here, a courageous conservatives across the state, we, together earn the votes of 48,608 iowans. to put it into perspective, your incredible victory that you have won tonight, that is the most votes, ever cast for any republican primary winner.
8:23 pm
tonight is a victory for millions of americans who have shouldered the burden of seven years of washington deals run amuck. tonight is a victory for every american who watched in dismay as career politicians in washington in both parties refuse to listen and too often failed to keep their commitments to the people. tonight is a victory for every american who understands that after we survive eight long years of the obama presidency, that no one personality can right the wrongs done by washington. the millions who understand that it is a commitment to the constitution, to our shared insistence that we rise and give
8:24 pm
the standard to the birth of the greatest nation the world has ever known. to the revolutionary understanding that all men, and all women are created equal. that our rights do not come from the democratic party, or the republican party, or even from the tea party. our rights come from our creator. and the federal government's roll, the federal government's responsibility is to defend those fundamental rights, to defend us. and while americans will continue to suffer, under a president who has set an agenda that is causing millions to hurt across this country, i want to remind you of the promise of
8:25 pm
scripture. weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. tonight, iowa has proclaimed to the world, morning is coming. morning is coming. from day one, this campaign has been a movement, from millions of americans across this country, to organize, to rally, to come together, whatever washington says, they cannot keep the people down. and tonight is a testament to the peoples' commitments to
8:26 pm
their yearnings to get back to constitutional liberties and the judao christian values that built this great nation. when the washington lobbyists settled on other candidates in this race, when the media in one voice said a conservative cannot win, nationwide, over 800,000 contributions poured in to ted as courageous conservatives said "yes, we can". 800,000 contributions at with average contribution of $67. that is the power of the grass
8:27 pm
roots. but it's more than that. it's 12,000 volunteers here in the state of iowa. it's over 200,000 volunteers across this great nation. you know, during the course of this campaign, people have asked heidi and me are you tired? and i will admit it is 16, 18 hours a day, 6, 7 days a week. we're not tired at all.
8:28 pm
to the contrary, we're inspired by each, and everyone of you. i leap out of bed every morning, amazed that at a time when our country is in crisis, everyone of us has the opportunity to stand and lead that we have been put in a place of leadership for such a time as this. i'm inspired by the stories of heroism that i see every day, working men, like jerry dunleavy from columbus, ohio. who requested an entire month off his job to come to iowa to live at camp cruz and to volunteer full time.
8:29 pm
when his employer refused to give him time off, jerry quit his job and came anyway. i love the great state of iowa. i'm inspired by people like elliott gazer and josh hammer, students at the university of chicago who spent their winter break at camp cruz. but they came back this weekend and hit the phones and they hit the pavement, campaigning to students across this country, upon graduation, rather than having mountains of debt will instead have 2, 3, 4, 5 high-paying job offers and a
8:30 pm
chance at the american dream. i'm inspired by people like alexandra, a 13-year-old girl from lubbock, texas, who, yesterday, at our campaign headquarters made 823 volunteer calls. that has always been the strength of this campaign. are the men and women gathered here and courageous conservatives lifting this country up in prayer each and every day. and let me say our leadership team, our iowa state chairman, m
8:31 pm
matt shultz, what an extraordinary job. you have done organizing a grass roots army. let me say to our iowa state director, brian english, what an amazing job brian has done. and to our national co-chairman, bob vanedergloss and steve king, these men have become dear and trusted friends. they are warriors. they are men of principle. they stand and speak the truth. they stand to defend their values and let me tell you, these leaders, day after day, week after week, have been crawling under broken glass with
8:32 pm
knives between their teeth. i'm grateful for the support the early support of my friends. we're grateful for the over 150 pastors across the state of iowa who joined our team to energize people of faith. we're grateful to the state senators, to the state representatives, to the volunteer leaders in each of the 99 counties who stood up and said we will be heard and this will be decided by the grass roots. and then, i am so grateful to national leaders, people like
8:33 pm
dr. james dodson. and tony perkins. and phil robertson. and governor rick perry, and glenn beck. leaders who have stood and led, bringing together conservatives here in iowa and across the country. do you want to know what scares the washington cartel? actually, not remotely. i don't scare them in the tiniest bit. what scares them is you.
8:34 pm
what scares them is that old reagan coalition is coming back together, of conservatives. we're seeing conservatives and evangelicals and libertarian and reagan democrats all coming together as one and that terrifies washington, d.c. and so do the people of iowa, heidi and i say thank you for your incredible hospitality, for your love, for welcoming us into your homes, into your living rooms. thank you for welcoming my father to preach from the pull pits of your churches.
8:35 pm
and let me say to my parents, mom, thank you. for the incredible, unconditional love that you have given me every day of my life, the knowledge that whatever i might do, whatever i might say that my mother loves me. to my cousin, bebe, like a sister to me, we grew up together, i love you, beebs.
8:36 pm
and to my dad, a man who came from cuba at age 18 with nothing. with $100 in his under wear, he doesn't carry money in his underwear anymore. a man in prisoned, tortured, who washed dishes making $0.50 an hour, who was r would live the american dream and a man who is today a pastor, traveling the country preaching the gospel. my dad is 76 years old and has the energy of a teenager and dad you have been my hero my whole life. i love you, daddy.
8:37 pm
when the sun rises tomorrow, this campaign will take the next step. we will continue to campaign the same way, sitting down, person to person, leader to leader, bfw halls, dunkin donuts, returning to the great state of new hampshire. and let me speak for a minute to the men and women of the state of new hampshire. 36 years ago, you welcomed to the granite state a candidate running for president who was also deeply disliked by the
8:38 pm
washington establishment and the washington cartel. a candidate dismissed out right by the media. some polls had him 15, 20 behind. you refused to let the establishment and media do your thinking for you. you refused to let them tell you how to vote. you wanted a candidate who didn't adopt his position because of the latest opinion polls, but because of a deep and under lying conservative philosophy that grounded him so that he knew exactly what he believed and the principles were that built this great nation. and so tonight i want to say to the people of new hampshire, thank you for what you did 36 years ago. thank you for giving america, and the world, and history our
8:39 pm
40th president of the united states, ronald wilson reagan. and i ask the people of new hampshire, and the people of south carolina, and the people of nevada, and the people of the super tuesday states on march 1, to each of you, do not listen to our words. do not listen to the rhetoric from campaigns, but rather, hold everyone of us accountable, hold me accountable and every other candidate accountable to be a consistent conservative. if you want a candidate to repeal obamacare, then support a
8:40 pm
candidate who has led the fight to repeal obamacare. if you want a president to stop amnesty, to secure the borders and keep us safe, then support a candidate who has led the fight to stop amnesty to secure the borders and to keep us safe. if you want a candidate to support life and marriage and religious liberty, then support a candidate who spent decades of his life fighting to defend life and marriage and religious liberty. if you want a candidate to defend the second amendment right to keep and bear arms,
8:41 pm
then ask of every candidate where were you in the spring of 2013 when barack obama and harry reid and chuck schumer tried to undermine the second amendment right to keep and bear arms? if you want a candidate who will stand unapologetically with the nation of israel, then support a candidate who has led the fight over and over again to stand by our friend and ally, the nation of israel. and if you want a commander in chief who will fulfill the most solemn obligation of the president to keep this nation safe, then support a candidate who has demonstrated the commitment, the judgment, the
8:42 pm
experience, the clarity of vision, to identify our enemy, to call it by its name, radical islamic terrorism. and to utterly and completely defeat isis. if i am elected president, every militant on the face of the planet know, if you go and join isis, if you wage jihad on the united states of america, if you attempt to murder innocent americans you are signing your death warrant.
8:43 pm
and i'll tell you this. if the other states across the country follow the lead of the good men and women of iowa, and support this campaign, then, i tell you this. this july, in cleveland, you will hear these words spoken from the podium of the unified republican convention. tonight, i want to say to every member of the democratic party, who believes in limited government, in personal opportunity and the united states constitution, and a safe and secure america, come home. to the reagan democrats, your party has left you. and the republican party wants
8:44 pm
you, we welcome you back. because together, this year, republicans and the reagan democrats can send an unmistakable message, the message of a reagan like landslide that will drive the liberal elite and the washington cartel into the potomac and out to sea, never to be seen again. together, we can bring out a new era of economic growth, of military strength, of international security and the future of hope that our children deserve. if we commit to do more than hope, if we aspire to govern by a higher standard that transcends political party and race and gender and income, and
8:45 pm
to everyone that is tired of a president that divides us daily on racial lines and religious lines, on gender lines, on socioeconomic lines we will have a president that once again seeks to bring us together and unite us on our shared values of who we are as americans. the most solemn responsibility of the president is to keep this country safe. and we will stop the weakness and aapril -- do what it takes to defeat them. i give you my solemn promise.
8:46 pm
we will finally, finally, finally, secure the borders and and sanctuary cities. and i want to speak for a moment to the soldiers and sailors and airmen and marines and moms and dads who have a child serving overseas. and husbands and wives wake up wondering if their loved one is still alive, waiting months upon months to get a hug from mommy, a kiss from mommy. the men and women sent into combat with arms tied behind their back with no idea when it
8:47 pm
will end in january, 17. you will have a commander in chief who finally has your back. and to the police officers, and the firemen, and the first responders, the heros who rushed in to burning buildings instead of out of burning buildings, the last seven years of having a president, having an attorney general that demonizes you, that vilifies you, that sides with the criminals land looters instead of the brave men and women of law enforcement, that will end on january 20, 2017. so tonight, the state of iowa, the democrats here seem to be in a virtual tie.
8:48 pm
between one candidate, who admits he's a socialist, and the other candidate who pretends she's not. i wish them both luck. but i will tell you this, as margaret thatcher observed the problem with socialism is that you run out of other peoples' money. and let me tell you tonight. >> senator ted cruz with a big speech, a big night for senator cruz. the iowa caucus winner with the most votes, ever for a candidate in the iowa caucuses. speaking for now, 32 minutes in this acceptance speech of the win. we wanted to let that breathe. you saw hillary clinton earlier, we have recorded that and you
8:49 pm
will see that in just a moment. the fox news decision desk is classifying iowa democratic caucuses as too close to call. in that speech, by hillary clinton she did not talk about where she is in this race, she said this is a big sigh of relief, and she will continue to fight. >> we want to get you to bernie sanders now giving us his view on the issue. let's take a look at whether we hear a victory declaration from him. >> the votes are still not complete. likes like we'll have about half of the iowa delegates.
8:50 pm
i want to take this opportunity to congratulate secretary clinton, of somebody, yes. in her organization for waging a very vigorous campaign and i want to thank governor o'malley. if ever easy to lose, i lost more than one campaign, but he should note that he contributed a whole a lot to the dialogue, that he ran an issue oriented campaign and he won the respect of the american people. if i think about what happened tonight, i think the people of iowa have sent a very profound
8:51 pm
message to the political establishment, to the economic establishment and to the media establishment. that is, given the enormous crisis facing our country, it is just too late for establishment politics and establishment economics. what the american people have said and by the way, i hear this not just from progressives, i hear it from conservatives and i hear it, that is that we can no longer continue to have a corrupt campaign finance system
8:52 pm
i am the former chairman of the senate veterans committee and in that capacity not only is i worked hard to try to protect the interests of our veterans i have had the privilege of meeting so many men and women put their lives on the line to defend us and protect our way of life, and, what they were protecting is an american democracy of one person, one vote, not billionaires buying an election. i am overwhelmed and i am moved by the fact that millions of people throughout this country have helped volunteer in our
8:53 pm
campaign, that we have received in this campaign, 3.5 million individual contributions people who went to and you know what the average contribution was? $27. >> bernie sanders admitting this race looks like a virtual tie and celebrating that we, as he put it, will have half of the iowa delegates and speaking about the profound message. >> senator ted cruz was speaking and hillary clinton was delivering a speech. we recorded that. here is a piece of that. >> my involvement from that first job i had at the childrens
8:54 pm
defense fund. and i know, i know what we're capable of doing. i know we can create more good paying jobs and raisin comes for hard working americans again. i know that finish the job of universal health care coverage for every man, woman, and child i know, i know we can combat climate change and be the clean energy super power of the 21 century. i know we can make our education system work for everyone of our children, especially those who come with disadvantages. i know we can make college affordable and get student debt off the backs of young people. and i know we can protect our rights, womens' rights, gay
8:55 pm
rights, voting rights, immigrant rights, workers' rights. and i know, too, we can stand up to the gun lobby and get common sense gun safety measures. and how do we do that? we do that, we do that, by securing the nomination, and then, we do it by winning and going into that white house as others before have, determined to push forward on the great goals and values that unite us as americans. i congratulate my esteemed friend and opponent, i wish governor o'malley the very best. he's a great public servant who have served, and i am excited about really getting into the
8:56 pm
debate with senator sanders about the best way forward to fight for us and america. in the last few weeks, we finally began to have what i think is one of the most-important substantive conversations that the democratic party could have. and i am thrilled at all of the people who are playing a part in that. i know that we may have differences of opinion about how best to achieve our goals. but i believe we have a very clear idea that the democratic party and this campaign, stands for what is best in america and we have to be united, when it is all said and done, we have to be
8:57 pm
united against a republican vision and candidates who will drive us apart and divide us. that is not who we are, my friends. i follow their campaign very closely. i understand what they're appealing to. and i intend to stand against it. i will not let their divicines, their efforts to rip away progress we've made be successful. >> secretary hillary clinton delivering a speech in which they said is a big sigh of relief but she is essentially tied as of tonight. we can't call this race. a tie with bernie sanders, for the iowa caucuses tonight. >> let's get final thoughts. >> i think this hurts secretary clinton and i think gives bernie sanders a bit of a lift as we go
