7:04 am
my girls are 5 and 7. i have to tell you they are better behaved than a presidential candidate who responds by insulting everyone every day when he loses. >> reporter: the texas senator take ag dig at sarah palin after she accused his campaign of a dirty trick. >> it seems if you spend too much time with donald trump. >> [ laughter ] >> strange things happen to people. >> reporter: a new tone to the feud. on the establishment side jeb bush expected to get backup from george w. bush giving his brother a helping hand when he appears to need it. >> send a signal that we are prepared to act in the security of this country. to get back in the business of
7:05 am
please clap. >> reporter: today two fewer competitors. rand paul and rick santorum dropping out. paul is not expected to endorse anybody before the new hampshire primary. an tor santorum is backing up marco rubio. >> hillary clinton and bernie sanders fielded tough questions in a town hall forum. andrea mitchell is at the university of new hampshire where tonight's event is being held. >> reporter: tonight msnbc debate will be their first debate and only one before the new hampshire primary. they did warm up appearing separately wednesday night. a different side of hillary clinton was on display wednesday night. >> i have had to be in public dealing with difficult issues.
7:06 am
on a jesuit paraable. >> be grateful for limitations. listen to critics, answer questions but at the end be grateful. >> reporter: critics pounced on how she explained taking $675,000 from wall street for speeches. >> i don't know. that is what they offered. >> i do not know any progressive who has these superpacks and takes $15 million from wall street. >> reporter: sanders and clinton have been trading jabs for days over who is the real progressive. >> some of my best friends are moderates. you can't be a moderate and a they are different. >> i was somewhat amused that senator sanders set himself up for gate keeper on growingives. >> reporter: clinton is behind

7:08 am
the substance of it? and is it a smart political attack in. >> i am shocked that political campaigns try to win elections. did they take advantage of the situation with carson. a lot of stuff goes on behind the scenes there. it's donald trump playing a little bit of politics. that said, i have to say the helps one candidate. but marco rubio. the private polling i have been hearing about over the past two days post iowa indicates that cruz hasn't gotten a bump partly because trump has been beating him up. there is only one guy on the rise. >> nicole, we know the voter base in new hampshire is different than iowa. are the new hampshire voters emotional voters or are they pragmatic voters?
7:09 am
to go for cruz or trump or look for someone, the best person to beat hillary clinton or whoever the democratic nominee is? >> historically and i feel like i need to give that caveat because nothing has been historic -- for two reasons they are practical voters. in new hampshire independents can participate in each party's primary. you will read people not just choosing between rubio and kasich. you hear between hillary clinton and marco rubio. they are making a completely different appeal. it moves at the edges. and the knife fight between cruz and trump runs a risk of not just each man destroying the other but alienating voters to bring to the camp. >> i don't know if you call it a fight. bernie sanders and hillary clinton and who is the most progressive person in the race. that one?
7:10 am
who you are in the democratic electorate right now. what you are seeing is sanders and the idealism and the bold ideas saying take it to washington and do those things. that is appealing to the younger generation. the pragmatic argument should be one to work well for hillary clinton here in new hampshire particularly on the democratic side. democratic primary voters for years in new hampshire have been a bit more pragmatic, a less idealistic. it should play well here. it hasn't so far. i think tonight's debate will go far in deciding. >> bernie sanders heads to new hampshire. bigead in the polls. he is the guy next door but hillary clinton has faced this before and done well in new hampshire. she is going to pour an enormous amount of resources into the state. if she closes the gap substantially is the momentum victory? >> this is where each candidate
7:11 am
they manage the expectations game. bernie sanders take a peek at what marco rubio did in iowa. he let the expectations stand that he has to win by a whopper of double digit figure. he will lose if he wins. >> in 1992 -- >> nobody remembered that. we'll see you tonight. the debate begins at 9:00 eastern time. the mystery deepening this morning over an explosion shortly after takeoff that ripped that hole in the side of a passenger plane in somalia. was it caused by a bomb? >> reporter: we are still trying to figure out what happened here. officials tell us no shrapnel was found inside the plane and say bomb is unlikely. experts say damage from outside sumgs an explosion did occur.
7:12 am
the aircraft was 15 minutes into the flight when a hole was blown in the fuselage. experts say passengers may not have survived if plane was at a higher altitude. witnesses say a passenger was sucked out of the plane. passengers describe seeing smoke. >> i saw white smoke. in a few seconds i did realize. we saw a hole in the plane. >> reporter: in the past u.s. bound planes had been targeted with bombs smuggled into the cabin. richard reid tried to detonate from his shoes. and in 2009 a detroit bound
7:13 am
in this case officials have not ruled out a failure of the aircraft. we are aware of the reports about the daallo airline flight. a spokesman told nbc news air bus has a team on stand by ready to join the investigation but is waiting for an official request from authorities in somalia. and the turkish airlines flight from the same airline was cancelled. most of the passengers are transferred on to the ill fated flight. they weren't meant to be on that plane and escaped with their lives. new developments in the fight against the zika virus. florida's governor rick scott declared a public health emergency on wednesday in four counties where people have been diagnosed. there have been at least nine cases in florida. scott says he wants officials to be prepared for the possibility
7:14 am
health officials believe all cases are from people who contracted the disease while traveling. the former pharmaceutical executive who raised the price of a drug by 5,000% is appearing on capitol hill today but we don't expect to hear much from him. >> that temporary price hike had critics calling him the most hated man in america. known for speaking his mind his legal team wants him to keep quiet. the former drug company ceo known for raising drug prices and his voice now uncharacteristically quiet. >> from hence forward he does not speak to any member of the press. >> reporter: his new attorney imposing a gag order after the client appeared on charges of security fraud. the charges are not relate today controversial price hike for
7:15 am
he increased the price from $13.50 to $750. that newly imposed is silence -- >> he will be invoking -- >> reporter: he was talkative tuesday on power 105. >> i'm telling you i'm from the street. >> reporter: where he spoke about everything from donald trump to a video he released last week. >> you think it's okay to beef with me. >> you wouldn't. >> he has been feuding with the rapper ever since spending $2 million for the one and only copy of the latest album. >> he is taking shots with me. in the hip hop game it's not easy to be on the receiving thing without jumping back. >> you're not hip hop. >> whatever.
7:16 am
>> and while he is still tweeting out insults online when it comes to legal matters his lawyer is doing the talking splmpt dw not . >> his high profile persona impacting profits. the stock portfolio dropped from $45 million to $4 million. such a bizarre guy. >> see why the lawyers are like enough of the chatting. the criminal sexual assault case against bill cosby is moving forward. a pennsylvania judge refused to throw out the case on wednesday rejecting the defense's claim that the former district attorney promised not to prosecute cosby. the judge found that promise was not binding on the current d.a. and does not prevent current charges.
