8:02 am
night's nevada caucuses senator marco rubio did a rally of north las vegas last night rubio continues racking up endorsements in nevada and is hoping his personal biography spending six years of his childhood here will help grow in an interview, rubio talk about the nevada economy. >> nevada is not just about gaming anymore. they have a rising tech industry, particularly in the energy sector but gaining is important and tourism is important. >> texas senator ted cruz was in prompts and will hit a lot of rural areas. i asked cruz after his rally if his talk tough stance on illegal immigration might hurt him with latino voters. >> most hispanics in this country, particularly us citizens don't want to open doors. they want to see our borders secured they want to see our communities safe.
8:03 am
>> reporter: nevada is fourth on the 2016 gopcalendar, first in the westborough caucuses were chaotic four years ago but leaders are hopeful it will be smoother tomorrow night. i spoke to nevada's gop senator, rubio supporter, about campaigns competing here with limited time ago . >> nevada knows exactly what's going on in the last six months for that matter but especially after iowa. i think you could change politics very quickly in nevada and south carolina, i think nevada is going to do the same thing. >> reporter: republican front-runner donald trump tweeted a short time ago that he is here at his hotel, trump international. he says he is working with his campaign and volunteers to win nevada. >> jon: seem like a little wind blowing across the desert. mike emmanuelle, thank you. >> jenna: the economy is a very big issue for nevada but voters and a new poll puts illegal immigration and terrorism among the top three concerns for this state.
8:04 am
joining us now, anchor and special report tobrett, every state has a story for either political party. what is the story nevada will tell us about the gop ? >> reporter: i think you are looking at a situation where the economy and how people feel about the economy still is driving the day but national security on the republican side is a big topic and we see that across the nation. nevada, i think, is going to line up for donald trump as we've seen in these early states. obviously he has a big lead going in and the question is, can he deliver on the organization to get all these people out to the caucus states. we've seen it before in south carolina. he over performed in some places he wasn't supposed to, for example the upstate of south carolina where he won the evangelical vote. in nevada, there's going to be an effort to organize to get to the caucus site and get the people out.
8:05 am
>> jenna: i'm glad you mentioned the evangelical vote in south carolina. i had to nevada, commentary magazine had an interesting article on ted cruz saying he was the one that had the biggest loss in south carolina because he wasn't able to coalesce the evangelicals that were expected to come out for him.we saw that book go to donald trump as well. what with that state it for 10 degrees in nevada, does it have a tipping point if you will for him or a significance coming out of south carolina or is it really about the states beyond. >> reporter: i think it's about the states beyond for ted cruz. i think the sec primary states of march 1, that's really a big showdown for ted cruz to see where he stands. south carolina, i don't think and out like the cruise campaign wanted it to and specifically that upstate vote that he lost to donald trump. ebony seven percent of the people in south carolina went to the polls on the republican side said their number one factor was finding someone to tell it like it is.
8:06 am
and obviously nobody wants a politician to tell it on it isn't but it does line up with donald trump's straight talk authenticity that plays well. >> jenna: we know from covering a variety of different elections that despite all the different issues brought up, going into the voting day the economy remains the number one issue for voters and i wonder brett if you can layout for our viewers what that means for marco rubio who wants to play out his experience on foreign policy but when it comes to the economy, perhaps there's more questions about his plan and expertise in that area. how about marco rubio and the economy and that part of his campaign? >> reporter: i think he's laid out detailed plans along the way here. they come under fire in their own way. he talks about the economy a lot on the stump and obviously has a mapped out plan for where he thinks he can get taxes and cutting spending but you're right. when people look at it, the businessman aspect of donald
8:07 am
trump is very attractive to folks and they are more in the antiestablishment mindset in the electorate then we've ever seen before. the kick the table over and try to jumpstart washington in a new way seems to be driving the day. >> jenna: we will see what happens in nevada. in the meantime, because rubio and trump are in nevada, we have the absence of john kasich.'s accusations from every campaign going in every direction saying there's no pathway to the nomination but what is k-6 strategy? he's in virginia today. what is he focusing on and how does he see his path to the nomination now? >> reporter: i think it's a good question for the basic campaign what is the path but they are signaling they are going to place in states where they think they have a pretty good chance. governor kasich placed well in virginia, a purple state.
8:08 am
in michigan, he's tryingto line up that midwest boat ahead of the vote in ohio which he feels that he can obviously take home . there is going to be pressure on the k-6 campaign to demonstrate what that path is, specifically for donors. i think the marco rubio, john kasich playing for the jeb bush donors is going to play out in coming days. >> jenna: what are you hearing about the supporters? a variety of different reports saying supporters of jeb bush are going to fall in line between marco rubio and others saying these folks are exhausted, tapped out and very need time to figure out if they are going to get behind another candidate at all. >> reporter: i don't know if it will be immediate butthere will be an effort to coalesce around one candidate and listen, if you look at what the jeb bush spent, he spent a lot of money and at least 35 , $40 million going after and attacking marco rubio so if that endorsement came, specifically it would be obviously one where he would have to stomach a lot of
8:09 am
criticism about past attacks. >> jenna: we will have to see where the money falls in line if it does at all. final question for the panel. do you say nevada or nevada? >> nevada. people there get very upset about it. >> jenna: i'm from the west coast. we say nevada. glad we are on the straight and narrow. great to see you. we will see you tonight on special report. that's going to be an interesting conversation. we want to hear from you as well. what effect will jeb bush have on the republican race when it comes to money and otherwise let's go to to join the conversation. >> jon: the democratic presidential hopefuls are heading south after their showdown in nevada . >> jenna: we were all together.same team . >> jon: hillary clinton facing
8:10 am
bernie sanders there. next stop south carolina in the democratic primary while clinton and sanders also their sites on super tuesday states through the south. blake berman covering all of that for us. blake? >> reporter: hillary clinton and bernie sanders will be in and out of south carolina this week and for good reason. take a look at the latest poll average from real clear it showsclinton as a huge lead ahead of saturday's primary . for the moment, that number is at 24 points. black voters will likely play a large role in a potential clinton victory on saturday. however, taking a look forward there may be another demographic to closely keep an eye on for clinton and that's latinos. while clinton on the nevada caucus by six points on, the entrance poll shows more latinos supported sanders. clinton and her campaign are pushing back hard on those numbers. >> that's not what our analysis shows, number one. it was a broad-based turnout
8:11 am
and we dominated of course in clark county where las vegas i . >> reporter: sanders is trying to head his nevada defeat by pointing out that clinton only received four more delegates. if she goes up the pressure will now for super tuesday which features 11 states in one day. sanders says he thinks he is poised to pick up some states. >> i think we are going to do well in states like minnesota, colorado, massachusetts, oklahoma. after that we are going to fight hard for michigan, kansas . there are safehouses out there and i think we have a real shot to win it. >> reporter: sanders just ended an event in south carolina. he is headed out for two stops in lightly friendlier territory, massachusetts in the northeast. john? >> jon: blake berman reporting from dc . >> jenna: the supreme court is
8:12 am
back in session today for the first time since the sudden death of justice scalia. some landmark cases may be impacted by this vacancy on the high court. plus, horrific new violence in syria with isys claiming responsibility for attacks on government held areas as leaders agree on a cease-fire. we agree with that story. plus bill cosby's wife answering questions under oath in a lawsuit blocked by some of her husband's accusers. we have the details next.
8:13 am
8:14 am
8:15 am
. >> jon: right now, crying stories we are following on happening now. bill cosby's wife preparing to answer questions under oath in her husband's defamation case. his lawsuit brought by seven women who say cosby sexually assaulted them and called them liars for going public with the accusations. cosby's attorneys trying to get
8:16 am
camille cosby off the hook saying she didn't have relevant information but a judge denied that request. and a judge in connecticut getting ready to hear a convicted killer's request for a retrial. joshua or jeff keys was one of the men indicted in the murder of pettit and her two young daughters in 2007. his lawyers say newly discovered police reporting would have been crucial to his defense. plus, rapper $.50 heading to court to explain why he is declaring bankruptcy despite posting pictures of himself on social media surrounded by stacks of hundred dollar bills. the rapper says he still brings in money but not enough to pay for a series of lawsuits. >> jenna: us officials say the united states and russia have agreed on a plan that would create a cease-fire in syria starting this saturday. this comes as isis claims responsibility for deadly attacks over the weekend saying two of its car bombs dominated their explosive belts. the latest from our mideast bureau.
8:17 am
>> reporter: jenna, as you mentioned, the ap is reporting that the us and russia have said and agreed to a cease-fire in syria to start saturday. it would exclude isis and the al qaeda linked, anti-áuntran5á faction fighting the civil war. again, the attacks would continue on isis and let's talk about those bombings. isys claimed responsibility for yesterday's attack. two cars packed with explosives according to officials were detonated near a bus stop in central palms in the eastern part of suicide and three
8:18 am
attacks reportedly carried out in southern damascus. more than 130 people killed. despite these attacks, secretary of state john kerry said sunday that a provisional agreement had been reached with russia on the cease-fire in the country's civil war. now, the ap is reporting a plan has been reached for a cease-fire to start saturday. the question among others is whether syrian president assad will adhere to it. he continued his bellicose attitude, if you will, about a cease-fire saying no one would be able to stop the fighting, that he would retake all of syria. pressure from his russian allies is unknown, perhaps that is the case. over the weekend, we saw he shifted his stance a bit, saying he would be willing to agree to acessation of hostilities as he called it if it didn't help terrorists. one of the interesting points, according to this agreement , the plan for a cease-fire excludes isis and java all new serac. one of these factions fighting assad regime. behind the negotiation committee which is speaking for all the rebel forces said it
8:19 am
would agree to a cease-fire if the attacks would stop on the news right front so this could throw a wrench into the negotiations. as we've seen, the bottom line here is that this has been a arduous and complicated process with a lot of moving parts. whether the cease-fire goes into effect saturday remains to be seen. we've certainly seen failed cease-fire plansbefore . >> jenna: thank you very much. >> jon: a rare personal appeal from the director of the fbi over its legal battle with apple. why he says the agency won't be able to face the families of the san bernardino victims if they don't the killer iphone. that has the families of the victims say they are outraged. >> i personally feel veryupset that apple is not cooperating with the fbi and i have personally spoken for the
8:20 am
family members of victims and that they feel the same . thy california walnuts. the best simpldinner ever? heart healthy california walnuts. great tasting, heart healthy california walnuts. so simple. get the recipes at how long have you had your car insurance? i ask because i had mine for over 20 years, before i switched and saved hundreds with the aarp auto insurance program from the hartford. i had done a lot of comparison shopping. the rate was like half of what i was paying.

8:23 am
>> jon: apple is standing firm in its battle with the fbi. its ceo emailing employees that the government should withdraw its demand that apple help the fbi hack into a locked iphone used by one of the san bernardino shooters. while the fbi director says apple owes it to the victims of that massacre to cooperate with the government. joining us now, fox news anchor and attorney greg jared. we've got two competing arguments here. the fbi versus apple. they are at loggerheads. who's get the better legal argument? >> in the court of public opinion opinion, the fbi has the better position. why don't you help us find other terrorists and foiled potential future attacks? but in the court of law, apple
8:24 am
has the better argument. this is not the normal case where the government goes to computer company and says open your files, open your systems, let us look for evidence. this is the government saying we want a conscript apple to go to work for us to create a software code to break up into the device and not just that device but the code could break into hundreds of millions of other similar devices and normally the government cannot force you, jon scott or your company to go to work for them as an active agent in a criminal investigation. >> jon: but the guy didn't even own that phone. it was owned by the county he worked for and the county said go ahead. >> the county said go ahead so there's no siege and search search and seizure. the government is being put in a position of seeing we can get our hands on this if only you will help us but it's help beyond just opening the door. you've got to work for us. you've got to have your
8:25 am
computer technicians create something. >> jon: the apple argument, i guess, is that if you do this then the barn door is open and all of the horses run out. that hackers and cyber criminals would be able to access information from iphones over the planet. do they have a point? >> they have a valid argument. consumers want privacy and security, apple knows that. so they are deeply worried that if we create this code on our computer servers, it could be hacked by cyber terrorists, the us government could use it for nefarious purposes to investigate its citizens. foreign intelligence agencies could get their hand on it and so in the end, the united statesas well as the second largest market, china, where consumers really care and by sometimes their phones for
8:26 am
privacy reasons . this is amarketable brand. you compromise it, it becomes less valuable . >> jon: we will see what happens. this argument will go on for some time. >> jenna: the republican race is heating up with the candidates focused on the product. senators marco rubio and ted cruz are battling for the upper hand after rubio came in second with cruise right behind himin carolina. we take a closer look at the mediacoverage of donald trump and his supporters. is it fair ?an interesting debate next .>> it's tough, it's nasty, it's mean, it's vicious. it's beautiful. [laughter] when you win, it's beautiful and we are going to start winning for our country.
8:27 am
8:28 am
8:29 am
8:30 am
>> jon: we take it to the state dining hall of the white house. governors are in attendance talking with president obama about the way the state and federal government and work together to try to get things moving forward in this country. the president is opening his remarks to the governors who are assembled there. just wanted to give you a quick peek at what's going on in washington dc right now. >> jenna: the race against caucus in nevada as most of the gop candidate's campaign across the state. alicia live in las vegas with more for us now. alicia? >> reporter: attending the
8:31 am
caucuses in nevada, delegates are getting out proportionally so candidates are arriving fighting to build on whatever momentum they bring. take a look at the cnn poll takenbefore the south carolina primary. trump has a commanding lead in nevada but getting people to actually turn out is a real challenge here . before heading here from atlanta, trump pressed supporters to show up. >> were just going one after another. are we going to win georgia? [applause] we are going to. i see it, i feel it. i feel it. but it is crunch time. we have to go out and vote. >> reporter: senator rubio is spending a big chunk of the day in the northern part of the state. campaign official confirms he will be leaving nevada tomorrow morning after an event in las vegas and be in michigan by the time caucus results here are in.
8:32 am
last night, he talked of memories of growing up in the state. meantime, ted cruz told my colleague mike emanuel he does not believehis tough stance on illegal immigration makes it tough to connect with a large latino population here because as senator cruise put it, hispanics here legally don't want open borders . >> as president, i will secure the borders. we will build a wall wall. we will triple the border patrol, andsanctuary cities and welfare benefits for those here legally and we know how to do all this. what's missing is the political will . >> jenna: notably not in nevada, governor john kasich who is participating in a town hall in fairfax virginia. casey is betting on super tuesday and other marked calls to bring him into the infield which could be a big gamble. jenna? >> jenna: thank you. >> jon: the new york daily news out with a finely front-page cover after donald trump on the south carolina primary but he's not the object
8:33 am
of ridicule this time. instead, the voters are. the news calling them dunces for two choosing drunk and it's one of the many media attacks on trump supporters. fox news analyst touches on in his latest column. here to talk about it, alan colds, host of the alan coles show syndicated by fox news radio and count thomas, a syndicated columnist and fox news contributor. the thing that howard crist points to alan, he says that the media firewall against donald trump is to blame voters for continuing to support him, saying they must be dummies or racists. does howard have a point? >> that's one headline. we know that trump supporters overall tend to be less educated, tend to be older. he treats white supremacist. he gets up and waxes poetic about bullets and pigs blood shooting muslims. this is the kind of stuff that i guess some people find
8:34 am
appealing. this is what he saying on the campaign trail so why should we be surprised? >> jon: so instead of claiming the messenger they are leaving the people who vote for the messenger, is that how it goes? >> apparently so john. in my column tomorrow i'm quoting a verse from scripture or as donald trump would put it, to kennedy. people will believe whatever their itching ears want to hear and the trump followers don't demand any facts from him. chris wallace on this network has asked trump tough questions about specifics on how he would do things. all he does is give generic answers that have nothing to do with the question. glenn class letter in yesterday's washington post look at trump's claim he's going to save $300 billion on the cost of drugs by apparently negotiating new deals with the pharmaceutical countries but kessler says that's four times the cost of the current medicare system and he will
8:35 am
either have to give the drugs away free or do something nobody's ever thought about before. these are crazy things that have no basis in fact and i'm sorry to say i agree with the daily news. they are just dumb's followers. >> jon: the media does not seem to be pressing him on the very things callous talking about. he does videos and is not asked about how he flip-flopped from one sentence, he says he's a free trader but with tax china, 35, 45 percent. he flip-flops all the time. his feet are not held to the fire and the media is falling down on the job in terms of getting him to respond and put out serious policy ideas.>> i just follow up on that that that some of them are asking serious questions. i mentioned chris wallace and others but if you're not getting an answer and chris has asked some questions two or
8:36 am
three times when trump didn't answer, what do you do? you can't keep browbeating him if he's not going to answer and his failure to answer, i think conveys very important information. he doesn't have them or is not willing to reveal them. >> jon: but if howard kurtz is right, is that a result? if you can't get answers from the candidate you then turn around and blame his supporters for his success? what's his success is because you've got some people who don't care about the answers were attracted to the personality. look, trump resonates with people viscerally but not intellectually, not rationally. it doesn't matter what he says. here's a guy who goes to south carolina, puts down the bush family . dick cheney said he sounded like a liberal when talking about the iraq war. it doesn't matter what he says because he's not speaking rationally to the rational part of people's brain. >> jon: i'd say the same thing about bernie sanders on the other side. it's a hate of all things >> jo prospect though of donald trump wrapping up this republican nomination? the media must have grown comfortable with that. >> the train has left the station and you got union station behind me and i think it's a high-speed train. i don't see any way to stop him
8:37 am
right now. there may be someone maybe when they get to the south, cooler heads will prevail but as of now, you always have to say as of now becausethis has been the most unpredictable political season i have ever seen and i started paying attention during the kennedy nixon election of 1960. i've never seen anything like this. anybody who thinks they know how it's going to turn out, they don't have a clue . >> jon: the times they are changing. thank you both. tonight you can catch a lot of donald trump. sean hannity will sit down with the gop front runner for an hour in las vegas. an hour of more than 300,000 people will also get to ask mister trump some questions. that's 10 pm eastern right here on the fox news channel. >> jenna: why ronald reagan's name keeps popping up in this year's presidential race. what has gop candidates mentioning our 40th president so often and is it effective? >> those of us who grew up
8:38 am
when it was morning in america and ronald reagan was in the white house are ready to do for our generation or the next generation what ronald reagan did for hours 's ♪jake reese, "day to feel alive"♪ ♪jake reese, "day to feel alive"♪ .
8:39 am
8:40 am
8:41 am
>> jenna: gop candidates trying to become our 46th president keep channeling ronald reagan, comparing their principles to those of our 40th president. here's a quick snapshot just thisweekend. >> ronald reagan made us believe it was morning in america again and it was . now, the children of the reagan revolution are ready to assume themantle of leadership . [applause] >> as ronaldreagan was to the presidency , so too was justice scalia to the us supreme court. his passing, one week ago today underscores theenormous stakes of this election . >> jenna: the founder of the
8:42 am
new democrat network and a former campaign advisor to president clinton and david webb, host of the david when show on sirius xm and fox news contributor as well. great to have you both. david, i'm going to start with simon here. simon actually used the term children of reagan in a assignment back in 2014. you taking responsibility for this. >> i will give you a nickel. >> i was very flattered that marco rubio used that term but it's speaking to something important that you are seeing the rise of a whole generation of fortysomething republicans who grew politically of agewhen reagan was very powerful , the republican reader was president and you are seeing crews and rubio and walker and paul ryan and this generation of republicans are a significant force that democrats are going to have to defeat if we are evergoing to get back into power in the senate and house
8:43 am
and down below. he's speaking to something meaningful in this election . >> jenna: i'm reading the note that he wrote saying this is a group of its increasingly successful and energetic politicians. it's a formidable force for democrats to face but historical comparisons are tricky because they do conjure up a specific image and sometimes you can't meet that image whether it's joe dimaggio, elvis or ronald reagan. it's brought so you have to be careful with this. tell viewers why. >> this is a conversation i had many years now with president reagan's actual son, michael reagan, a good friend of mine. we talk about it on my show over the years that people are reaching back in the republican party and i get it. i adore the presidency of ronald reagan. i have no shame in saying that publicly. the man was a great president. he and george bush did things re-center the 20th century on the values of reagan, free markets. he got so much right.
8:44 am
his leadership is something to be referenced but the republicans continue to reach back and it seems as if in every cycle, every candidate finds a connection. it's a word that triggers but what does it those 40 somethings besides simon!? 40 years ago they were 10 years old. they didn't knowreagan. they didn't live through the reagan era so that tricky comparison is to move forward and talk about the principles , less about the name of throwin . >> jenna: what about that, simon? to make the comparison then move forward.and what about the fact that the candidates are using different parts of reagan that they like. it's not like the republican party this is the one unifying principle we all stand behind. each are choosing their own reagan philosophy they say they embrace. >> the most traumatic example of that is immigration reform which reagan was pro-immigration reform and the current republican party isn't.
8:45 am
i'm not surprised in part because ronald reagan's been the most important republican the last hundred years of american life. he was a successful president that reoriented the party and contrast that to nixon and bush who were largely failed presidencies. when you are arepublican looking back you don't have a lot to pull from other than reagan though i do think you will continue to hear the republicans be inspired by reagan going forward but in part that's a sign of the failure of their other major candidates . >> i have such hope for you simon. let me correct the record. there's a reason we now also have the lincoln reagan dinners. i speak about them around the country. the presidency of george herbert walker bush followed reagan versus his vice president. passing more legislation by the numbers, advancing many issues for many americans and yes, he is the most recent and important figure but it's part of a republican revolution that
8:46 am
we need to see again. reagan was kind of a forty-year revolution where in other cycles, 40 years later b. >> jenna: the question becomes who is going to lead that cycle? who does embrace reagan in a way that can push it on another 40 years or reinvigorate the party? rush limbaugh had ideas about this, a specific candidate he says really does it. as conservative -ism is your back, if conservatives is a is a dominating factor in how you vote there's no other choice, rush limbaugh says for you in this campaign other than ted cruz because you are right. this is the closest in our lifetime we have ever been to ronald reagan. david, your thoughts? >> my job is to analyze the horse race as you do on a news show. not pick the horses but in the reagan revolution, something more important than the man first occurred. americans needed a revolution so the people, the populism
8:47 am
actually said we need a change and reagan came and in his time he fit the bill. the people have begun to change since the rise of the tea party movement, since the growth of populism and more what i call traditional republican values then the reagan big ten approach. we are involved in generally singly, 40 years later and that's what's changing and the person who steps in and captures that and wants to be not just elected but a leader will bethat person but you have to realize the electorate has changed in america. we demand more now. look at the changes . >> jon: >> jenna: we're not one toget names but an interesting perspective and really the revolution is driving it, not necessarily the candidate . >> we the people. >> jenna: that's interesting, especially given the diversity of candidates on the gop side. simon, what do you think westmark are you willing to name somebody whoyou think is that next critical reagan . >> i don't know because the republican electorate is so unsettled right now. for all the hoopla about rubio and his nikki haley with him,
8:48 am
if you look at one option which is rubio, nikki haley, tim scott, that's the kind of party i think that is on future for the republican party but the future seems to be choosing is the future of trump which is a very different kind of style, a different approach, one that i think is really fighting hard against this other emerging republican party. certainly it looks today like donald trumpcannot be stopped and is therepublican nominee so we may have to wait, jenna, for this next leader to come along. >> jenna: we will see, maybe the two images or three or four images do merge at a certain point. this is part of the exercise, getting the party there. i would be curious from our viewers who they think embodies the next reagan and simon and
8:49 am
david, i look forward to having you back . >> thank you jenna .>> jon: it was ronald reagan who appointed scalia and now the justices are going back in session for the first time since and how some landmark cases may be affected by the vacancy. the scene of a dramatic rescue pattern on body camera video. how cruz got the dogs out. >> we have two little dogs. zoe and zeus and they like to run our property here in the morning and they decided that they weregoing to play in the water so they jumped in our lake . pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both your itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase changes everything.
8:50 am
i'm a customer relationship my nmanager with pg&e.der, i've helped customers like plantronics meet their energy efficiency goals. so you save energy and you can save money. energy efficiency and the environment go hand in hand. and i love how pg&e's commitment to the environment helps a community like santa cruz be a better place to live. and being able to pass that along to my family is really important to me. just being together and appreciating what we have right here in santa cruz. see how you can save energy at
8:51 am
together, we're building a better california.
8:52 am
