presidential candidates are as they can. democrats hillary clinton and bernie statistical tie. kcrg-tv9's forrest saunders joins us from forrest, clinton sat down with tv-9 to talk specifically to iowans. she spoke to us after an event in north liberty. more than 500 showed up at buford garner elementary school, where clinton took the podium with activist cecile richards. after, in her interview with tv-9, clinton touched on governor terry branstad's plan to privatize medicaid. she's wary of the plan, which would allow three private companies to manage 500-thousand iowan medicaid plans. the governor claims this will save the state $51 million its first year. clinton doubts where that savings will come from. in

it might be coming benefit cuts. "i have certainly spoken out against it. i've even run some ads against it. i think it's so harmful to so many people. the federal government postponed it once and i hope that they keep demanding more answers because there's a lot more questions than answers right now. " privatization was supposed to happen january 1st, but federal regulators delayed the launch until march 1st. they said the state lacked readiness in some areas. clinton has scheduled a stop in adel on wednesday. that will be her last before the caucuses. gov poll shows clinton with 46 percent and sanders with 47 percent. but there was a 5 point 2 margin of error, so they are technically tied in iowa. nicole and chris? back to you. thanks a lot forrest. on the republican side... new polling shows marco rubio is still holding onto third place -- and has been for

he sits at just 12% to donald trump's commanding 34% in the fox news poll. but rubio's campaign took endorsement sat down with rubio on sunday -- some of the subjects that came up... immigration and the republican brand... from the opening moments of sunday's 12- senator marco rubio, he stressed multiple times that he is the republican who could defeat former secretary of general election. " i'll beat hillary clinton... " yet can senator rubio find a path to get past donald trump or texas senator ted cruz, who have been 1st or 2nd in polling of iowa republicans for months. rubio has been a strong third, usually at 12 or 13%. " i give the republican party the best chance to unify this
6:06 am
is over. we will unify the republican party and we will create new conservatives. we are going to campaign to people that have not heard from the republican party in a long time. " border security has become a critical issue for this election cycle. the senator talked about a firm stance on who gets into the u.s...and who does not. " the first thing i would say is now, immigration, the number 1 issue, first and foremost, is keeping isis out of america. when i'm president, if we do not know who you are or why you're coming, you're not getting into the united states. number 2 is we have to secure our borders. this is not an easy found position as i've been pushing for this for most of my time in the senate. the hiring of 20,000 new border agents. completing the 700 miles of walls and fencing. an entry/exit tracking system to prevent visa overstays " also, something rare. a republican attacking vermont democrat bernie sanders -- as it's been secretary clinton who has been a rallying point at many republican candidate rallies. "the people who are out of touch here are people like bernie sanders, who is an avowed democrat socialist. he doesn't hide that. i think he should run for president of sweden or some other country with economies he seems to enjoy. we want to be america. it is the democratic party that has gone way off the scale, far to the left, espousing openly socialist policies that are, perhaps appropriate for europe. they don't work here. we don't want them here. we want to be america.
