iowa is already a battleground for the presidential candidates. tonight it will be a battleground for cable television ratings. on fox news it will be the final pre- caucus gop debate live from the iowa
4:02 pm
everywhere else it will likely be donald trump. trump is refusing to participate in tonight's debate. instead he is hosting what he calls a fundraiser for wounded veterans. the campaign booked sheslow auditorium at drake university. the only problem... know one knows exactly which organization trump is raising money for. we reached out to his iowa campaign to ask who is the beneficiaries of his fundraiser will be. we got a vague response: --quote-- "many veterans groups will benefit! it will be a great event." trump won't be the only republican presidential candidate at the event. mike huckabee and rick santorum plan to take part after their "undercard" debate on fox news this evening. with trump's big event at the school tonight, drake university is reflecting on a successful political season on its campus. "it's really exciting. it's exciting to see students engage in the process, and have the opportunity to seek candidates, meet candidates, really engage in the political debates that are going on in their country right now. obviously, these are the issues that are going to define their future, so i think we're lucky enough to be able to provide them with these
4:03 pm
everything we can to do so." :01-:23 this caucus cycle has been more active for the school than ever before. the school hosted a democratic debate and a democratic townhall, along with the brown and black forum broadcast on the b-e-t network... organizers with drake say it's all part of ensuring the younger generation participates in the political process. "we want to, first of all, make it easy for them to participate in this caucus cycle. but we also, we know that those first few election cycles are vitally important - if people develop a habit of participating in the political process, they will continue to participate in the political process. and that means, not only voting, but attending events, learning about issues, reading the news, and they become much more engaged citizens." :01-:26 drake will also host five precinct caucuses monday night.
4:04 pm
scheduled to take the stage at drake university, the rest of the top tier republican presidential candidates will take the stage for their final pre-caucus debate. ted cruz, marco rubio, ben carson, jeb bush, chris christie, john kasich and rand paul made the cut for the main debate this evening. it starts at eight on cnn. they'll be preceded by the "bottom four" in the race. carly fiorina, mike huckabee, rick santorum and jim gilmore. their debate begins at six o-clock. fiorina hit the campaign trail in ankeny today. 'the very act of repealing obamacare...and rolling back these ridiculous regulations..in and of itself unleashes productivity. ronald reagan said a long time ago, but its still true..government is not the solution, government is the problem. government particularly a big bloated complicated federal government in washington dc protected by a professional political class of both parties is the problem. fiorina shared a six point plan to restore america... including securing
4:05 pm
simplifying the tax code and passing a new budget bill using technology. that bill for zero based budgeting.. press one for yes..two for no.. you see ladies and gentlemen technology is an incredibly powerful tool. im gonna use it. we use technology for foolish things like throwing people off of islands, voting for voices, im gonna use it for serious things. for channeling the power and common sense and good judgement of the citizens of this nation. because we must restore a citizen government, its what we were intended to be. fiorina is publishing her full plan so that americans can hold her accountable to it if she wins the white house. there is a smaller debate controversy brewing on the democratic side. hillary clinton is pushing for a debate in new hampshire next week as her support there is shrinking. this morning our dave price asked the frontrunner in new hampshire,

it's a rigged economy that sends most new wealth to the top 1%. and it's held in place by a corrupt political system where wall street banks and billionaires buy elections. my campaign is funded by over two and a half million small contributions. people who know you can't level the playing field by taking more money from wall street. i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. join the fight to take back our government.

"she goes is this a real thing, is this house really for sale? and i was clueless, right i said, i think you must have the wrong number. she says well i'm looking at an ad in the newspaper that says your house is for sale." there couldn't be an ad - lusk and his family just moved in 6 months ago. they're settling into their new home. but sure enough - there it was.
