the five remaining republicans will get together tonight for one more debate before next week's super tuesday presidential primary. many see the debate in houston as the last chance for marco rubio and ted cruz to possibly slow the momentum of front- runner donald trump. the other candidates john kasich and ben carson have only been in single digits in most states. the obama administration is reportedly considering a republican as a nominee to replace the late supreme court justice antonin scalia. nevada governor brian sandoval is a former federal judge and is considered a sentries. the nomination of a republican could be seen as an attempt by the president to break a senate republican blockade of any of his choices. will they comply? that's the question a lot of people are asking this morning. apple's ceo tim cook was order by a federal judge to help the fbi hack into the phone of one of the san bernardino gunmen but so far nothing out of apple. kpix 5's keit do has more live
