candidates continued today when dark horse jim gilmore headed for the barn. so a great deal is riding on tomorrow's debate. rr can anyone catch trump? can an establishment republican break out? the stage is set for the contest hosted by cbs news in greenville, south carolina. today, the candidates put their faith in christian conservatives eight days before the primary in ys south carolina. and here's julianna goldman. >> i think that life is divinely inspired. >> reporter: in a state where or faith is central to many voters, republican presidential candidates have proclaimed their beliefs on the stump-- >> i'm a christian and i converted to catholicism. >> i discovered my purpose by discovering the lord. >> reporter: on the airwaves. >> to use gifts we've been given. >> it's a faith and family forum. gi >> reporter: and at a religious forum where today jeb bush, marco rubio-- >> faith is the most important influence in my life. >> reporter: and ted cruz addressed the faithful. >> i am saved by grace and it
family's life. >> reporter: can you talk a little bit about the role of faith in south carolina in this primary? >> there are there are a lot of faith value voters here's for sure. and we'll have chance to share my life journey and how faith has been important. >> reporter: self-described re evangelicals are born-again christians make up 65% of south carolina republican primary voters four years ago. while cruz won the evangelical vote in iowa, donald trump won it in new hampshire. that may explain why in a state known for its rough-and-tumble politics, trump and his conservative credentials have become a feeding frenzy. >> there is nothing conservative about donald trump. >> look past the boasting and you'll see right through him. >> reporter: on twitter, trump turned the tables on his anti- in can ted cruz be an evangelical christian when he lies so much and is dishonest? negative tv ads here in south carolina.

issues -- medicaid, and what's nt id be president? so we hope when it's all said and done while there will be a er lot of heat there might also be some light. >> pelley: and with the winnowing that's occurred with the primaries and caucuses, it there will just be six candidates now on the stage, a very consequential debate. and that debate will begin at tomorrow evening at 9:00 eastern time, 8:00 central. that's 6:00 in the west, right here on cbs. and we invite you to tweet us your questions using the hashtag "gopdebate." democrats held their primary last night. >> he does not support the way i he do building on the progress that the president has made. >> reporter: in rural south ra carolina today, hillary clinton portrayed bernie sanders as one dimensional, part of a new di strategy she unveiled at last night's debate.
universal health care coverage. >> reporter: she is embracing ge his vision but panning his plans in detail. >> you need to level with people. every progressive economist who e has analyzed that says the ana numbers don't add up. it would probably increase the size of the federal government by about 40%. >> that is absolutely inaccurate. secretary clinton has been going in around the country saying, "bernie sanders wants to dismantle the affordable care act. e people are going to lose their medicaid." we're not going to dismantle anything. >> reporter: and with south carolina's minority-heavy ca primary looming, she is accusing sanders of the undermining the nation's first black president. >> in the past he's called him ti disappointment. the kind of criticisms we hear from bernie sanders about our e ki president i expect from republicans. i do not expect from someone t running for the democratic nomination to succeed him. m >> madam secretary, that is a fo low blow. ec i have worked with president h
but you know what? last i heard, we lived in a democratic society. last i heard, a united states senator had the right to disagree with the president. >> reporter: clinton supporter and former secretary of state madeline albright apologized re tonight for saying last week, "there's a special place in hell fo for women who don't help other women." she acknowledged in an op-ed in this context it offended some women who aren't voting for hillary clinton. very much. it looks chilly in south carolina where nancy is. and another big story tonight is n the cold snap in the northeast. temperatures are expected to bottom out sunday morning, possibly hitting record lows in re philadelphia, new york, and boston. in saranac lake, new york, wind chills could drop below minus 40. michelle miller is chilling in stranton, pennsylvania. >> reporter: it was a striking image-- house after house us
at about 2:30 in the morning, the water main burst, shooting water 20 feet into the air and shutting down two blocks. s, freeze set in. s signs, trees and power lines. that worries homeowner oscar velez. >> i'm just concerned that re people are going to slide and t get hurt or get hit by those big icicles there hanging. ng >> reporter: from the midwest to t the deep south, there was no escaping the arctic blast. today in greenville, south carolina, freezing temperatures turned this water fountain into a giant popsicle. temperatures are expected to to plunge to two degrees in new york on sunday. pedro morales says he's invested in a cheap ski mask to stay warm. >> they're great. and for $5, that's a bargain in new york city. >> reporter: and here in scranton, these houses are likely to remain on ice for several more days, scott. that's because temperatures are
freezing here until tuesday. >> pelley: michelle miller, thanks very much, michelle. police are trying to figure out why a man armed with a machete attacked people last night in a restaurant in columbus, ohio. four people were hurt, one , critically. jeff pegues is following this. >> reporter: police say the assault has the hallmarks of a terrorism-inspired attack. michael woods is deputy chief of the columbus police department. >> a lone individual with a machete going into a public bl place, committing an assault on people that he apparently does not know. do those are the things that-- that th give us concern. >> reporter: investigators say last night, 30-year-old muhammad barry went to this mediterranean restaurant and asked questions about the israeli owner and the ou food. he left and then returned half an hour later with a machete. in 911 calls, witnesses e.

involved in the conflict. and hopefully, it will allow food and aid to get into places that are cut off right now because of fighting. but it's not clear whether the syrian regime will actually comply, and this temporary cease-fire may not start for another week, which allows the regime to continue its offensive around the city of aleppo, which has already driven tens of en t thousands of people from their homes. there are fears that aleppo d could soon be besieged by the t regime, just like the town of madaya, where more than 40 people have already starved to death. those are the regime's tactics, and in an interview released an today, the syrian president, bashar al-assad, vowed to retake ar the entire country. he also rejected allegations of war crimes. . now, the regime's offensive is o backed by russian airstrikes and russia says despite cease-fire it will continue those strikes against terrorist groups. and that's another problem because when russia has said that in the past, it's also
some of those rebels are very skeptical about the cease-fire plan, and the agreement does not include isis and other extremist groups. >> pelley: not likely to be the end that the world's been hoping for. holly williams in turkey tonight. holly, thank you. on our southern border, we are now seeing a new wave of f immigration from mexico, but what's notable is who is making the journey and why. we asked mark strassmann to look into this. >> reporter: every day, cubans cross this border bridge from mexico into laredo, texas. since 1966, the cuban adjustment act has guaranteed asylum to refugees fleeing the communist a regime. they qualify for a green card after a year and a day, and citizenship five years later. but now they're afraid the thawing the diplomatic relations will end that special ia protection. jessenia acuna says, "how was i na supposed to get here if they
