6:00 pm
dampens carnival celebrations. we're on the ground in brazil. far from the bright lights of super bowl 50, a dark new chapter in "johnny football's" fall from grace. and how a minor spelling error made this american tourist a major celebrity in iceland. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news." >> axelrod: good evening. i'm jim axelrod. and this is our western edition. three days before the first primary election of campaign 2016, seven republican candidates are facing off in new hampshire tonight in debate number eight. of course, for front-runner donald trump, it is debate number seven. he sat out the last one to protest what he called "disrespectful treatment" from fox news, the network that hosted that last debate. trump was then upset by ted cruz in the iowa caucuses.
6:01 pm
marco rubio. major garrett is in manchester for us tonight. >> we had to move it to a bigger venue. >> reporter: marco rubio showing the same closing momentum that catapulted him to a strong third in iowa, drew 700 people to a biggest crowd of his new hampshire campaign. >> by the way, if you get a call on tuesday night saying that i dropped out, it isn't true. it's a lie. keep voting. >> reporter: that's a reference to ted cruz's campaign pushing stories during the iowa caucuses that ben carson was dropping out. cruz apologized, but the hardball tactics have backfired in some conservative circles. >> presidential candidate ted cruz. >> reporter: the cruz campaign has invested millions in voter data mining and mobilization. cruz is looking for a top-three finish here. ( cheers and applause ) john kasich, angling for second in new hampshire, told us after his 100th town hall, tonight's debate is not key to his strategy. >> the problem with them is they
6:02 pm
to show yourself. that's why the town halls have been so great. >> reporter: do you have any sense at all, that trump is collapsing and you could find yourself in first? >> i think there is a little air out of his balloon. but, you know, we'll wait and see for election day. >> reporter: donald trump campaigned fririy in south carolina, leaving behind snowy new hampshire where his once- formidable lead has begun to melt. >> my total focus now is on new hampshire. >> reporter: jeb bush, trying to revive his campaign after a disappointing sixth in iowa, called trump an insult artist, riddled with insecurities. >> i'm not a psychologist or a psychiatrist, but the guy needs therapy. >> reporter: as for tonight? >> the questions on the debate stage will probably be... really stupid, to be honest with you. >> she's rising in the polls. >> reporter: carly fiorina will not be on stage, excluded by abc, prompting this video from the super pac supporting her campaign. >> but on disney's abc, we've frozen carly out, turned the debate inside out.
6:03 pm
operation. >> the debate is underway, watched in all likelihood by an electorate far less conservative than iowa. four years ago, 47% of voters described themselves as moderate conservative. waiting until the last day to make up their mind. >> axelrod: major, thank you. now to the democrats, and hillary clinton's hopes for a 2008-style comeback in new hampshire. eight years ago, she pulled out a stunning victory over then- senator barack obama in a primary where polls had shown her 10 points down. as chip reid reports, this time, clinton trails bernie sanders almost two to one in new hampshire. >> so let me ask all of you guys-- are you ready to make a political revolution? >> yeah! ( cheers ) >> reporter: at new hampshire's franklin pierce university, bernie sanders drove home the message that's made this 74- year-old so wildly popular with
6:04 pm
him into a stunning statistical tie with hillary clinton nationally. >> power of wall street, the power of corporate america, the power of the corporate media, the power of large campaign donors-- are so great, that the only way we transform america is, how? how do we do it? together. that's exactly right. ( cheers and applause ) >> it's a beautiful day in manchester! >> reporter: clinton campaigned in manchester today, door to door, and in concord, with former secretary of state madeleine albright. they focused their last-minute appeal on women voters. >> we have to continue to defend a woman's right to make her health care decisions. >> and just remember, there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other. ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: but clinton made clear she's still hoping to cut into sanders' lead with college students. >> we're going to make college affordable. you will have debt-free tuition,
6:05 pm
college or university. >> reporter: earlier in the week, clinton angrily accused sanders of running a smear campaign, but at this event, she didn't even mention his name. it's unusual for a candidate to leave a state the weekend before an important primary, but clinton is going to flint, michigan, tomorrow to talk about the drinking water crisis and to enhance her credentials as a progressive, and sanders is going to new york city tonight to appear on "saturday night live," an effort to expand his lead with young voters. jim? >> axelrod: chip, thank you. just before 4:00 this morning in taiwan, people were shaken out of bed by a magnitude 6.4 earthquake. at least 17 people are dead in the hard-hit city of tainan on the southern coast. here's mireya villarreal. >> reporter: in the chaos and rubble, thousands of rescuers are working frantically and carefully, for moments like this-- a baby pulled alive from a collapsed 17-story apartment
6:06 pm
believed still trapped. this woman says she jumped out of the window to survive, while another man says he barely made it out. "when i ran down from the third floor, i found the whole second floor was gone," he says, "and i had to wait to be rescued by police." from the air, the extent of the damage is clearly visible. nine b bldings in tainan collapsed, but the damage is especially evident on the ground-- cars crushed, twisted metal everywhere. more than 500 now homeless. seismologists say the earthquake struck close to the surface. a large quake, that shallow, can be especially destructive. kate lao shaffner teaches english in a town just south of
6:07 pm
>> reporter: the quake struck just as the taiwanese were preparing to celebrate one of their biggest holidays, the lunar new year. now, it's a nation in mourning. it's mostly a grim task, but there's clear motivation not to give up, every time there's a rescue amid the rubble. mireya villarreal, cbs news, los angeles. >> axelrod: carnival is now under way in brazil, which is a huge draw, with at least one million tourists expected there to celebrate. and now a huge concern in the nation hit hardest by the zika virus. dr. jon lapook is in brazil. jon, a million tourists have come to brazil. a million will go home. so what does all this mean for the potential spread of the virus? >> reporter: well, jim, it's a great concern. because one theory about the way that zika actually came to brazil in the first place is that it was brought here in 2014 with the world cup soccer matches by somebody who was infected with zika virus elsewhere, came to brazil, and
6:08 pm
bithat person and got infected with the virus. now we're thinking perhaps it could happen in reverse-- infected people here could then travel elsewhere and you would have local transmission in those countries. >> axelrod: scary scenario. so, jon, we learned a lot more about how zika is transmitted in terms of bodily fluids this week. what do we know now, that we didn't before? >> reporter: it's been remarkable, jim. in just one week, we've learned first that it could be sexually transmitted. then it could be transmitted by blood transfusion. and now just yesterday, we found out that in brazil, the virus has been isolated from urine and from saliva of people who have zika infection. now, i want to emphasize something-- just because the zika virus is present in saliva, for example, does not mean that by kissing somebody that you can transmit zika infection from one person to another. we simply do not know that, and we need to have a lot more
6:09 pm
>> axelrod: all right. at least 53 confirmed cases in the united states, almost all of them among people who have traveled abroad. dr. jon lapook in brazil. thank you very much. >> tickets are still available for tomorrow's super bowl but it will cost you. on stubhub today they are priced between $2900 and $4700. you could go big and get a $175,000 seat in a luxury seat. o of course, that does include food and drinks. super bowl money is a big topic of conversation in san francisco, as in, how much should the host city get? here's john blackstone. >> reporter: when 70,000 football fans fill levi's stadium, it will be the culmination of three years of planning and a nine-day celebration. >> we have credentialled over 40,000 people to work on the super bowl itself. >> reporter: peter o'reilly is the nfl senior vice president of special events. the scale has become ridiculous, hasn't it? >> it has, but it really is just
6:10 pm
their passion for the game. >> reporter: along with that passion, the fans have brought traffic tie-ups and grumbling about how much it's costing san francisco's taxpayers. >> our taxpayers shouldn't be left with a $5 million tab. >> reporter: jane kim is a member of san francisco's board of supervisors. >> i'm not against the super bowl parties. what i don't support is a-- subsidizing a party for one of the wealthiest corporations in >> reporter: what does it cost the nfl to put this on? >> we invest tens of millions, let's just say... >> reporter: tens of millions of dollars. that's the best i'm going to get from you? >> that's correct. >> reporter: but san francisco is getting no money from the nfl for expenses like police overtime and street cleaning. >> we know that the nfl rakes in over $9.2 billion a year. the nfl can clearly pay for their own parties. >> reporter: how important is tourism to san francisco? >> it's incredible.
6:11 pm
>> reporter: kevin carroll, executive director of san francisco's hotel council, said the city is making lots of money, just not directly from the nfl. >> it increases the tax revenue to the city. it brings more people here that are going to spend money in our small businesses. >> reporter: hotels have raised average room prices to as much as $600 a night this week. and the game's benefits may extend far into the future. >> the super bowl has a huge media market, and when peopledi see san francisco, they might be trying to decide where they're going to come on their next vacation. >> reporter: no matter what team wins tomorrow, deciding whether this big party makes san francisco a winner or a loser won't be so easily decided. jim? >> axelrod: john blackstone covering the big game for us, thank you. cbs' coverage of super bowl 50 starts tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. eastern, 11:00 a.m. pacific. during the pregame, "cbs this morning" co-host gayle king will interview president obama and first lady michelle obama, live from the white house. far from the super bowl festivities, the quarterback known as "johnny football" is the focus of a criminal

6:17 pm
have you ever heard of an agent firing a football player because he won't listen? >> no. to have an agent say, "this guy is no longer-- no longer bringing in money, now he's a liability to my business," is a very telling sign. >> reporter: commissioner roger goodell sidestepped specifics when he was asked about manziel friday. >> we have young people that may have issues that need to be addressed for their long-term safety. >> reporter: and that's the concern of manziel's family. his dad says manziel refused rehab twice in the past week. paul manziel told a dallas newspaper: >> football enables him to be a star, enables him to be recognized, enables him to be the center of the party, no matter where he goes. so football's actually a liability at this point in his life. >> reporter: and in fact, manziel told t.m.z. sports, "i'm completely stable. i'm safe and secure." and he flat out denied he hit his ex-girlfriend.
