"desperado." "lying eyes." second best-selling album of all time. >> it takes you back. >> absolutely heartbroken when i heard the news. >> we're thinking, again, another great one. "tequila sunrise." i could go on and on. we want to get right to the blast of winter frigid temperatures for tens of millions of americans and look at that.
7:02 am
21 below zero in wisconsin. that cold air extending all the way east and that first big snowstorm of the winter right behind it. rob is going to start us off. he's outside. >> hey, robin, the entire eastern half in the grips. 16 in new york city but a windchill of 2. winds are gusty. look at these numbers from chicago all the way down to the deep south. we're talking about windchill advisories that are dangerously low. minus 3 in chicago. 9 degrees is the windchill in atlanta, georgia. 1 degree in washington. cold air in place watching the storm system likely to develop ursday, friday into saturday. the potential for heavy snow exists, new york down to the southwest. details of this, george and robin, of course, throughout the week. >> it is coming. the race for president now and on the republican side, donald trump and ted cruz locked in a battle for iowa where the caucuses are dominated by conservative and evangelical voters. abc's tom llamas is on the trial in des moines. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you.
7:03 am
and neither candidate is turning the other cheek and now cruz's aggressively going after trump to draw distinction with voters and cruz says, trump is now rattled. this morning, donald trump sending a signal to a key iowa voting blockbuster saying he can do something senator ted cruz cannot. >> i'll be much stronger in protecting the evangelicals. >> reporter: in an interview with the christian broadcasting network trump compared himself with ronald reagan. >> he didn't read the bible every day seven days a week, but he was a great president. >> reporter: on monday, donald trump quoting scripture at jerry falwell's evangelical liberty university. fumbling the bible verse typically known as second corinthians. >> but two corinthians, right, two corinthians, 3:17. that's the whole ball game. >> reporter: and now rush limbaugh issuing this warning to voters. >> there are a lot of conservatives who think that he is a wolf in sheep's clothing, that he is a traditional
7:04 am
lifetime new yorker and that means something. >> reporter: and according to cruz, he's chipping away at trump. >> don't listen to any candidate. look to our actions as the scriptures say, you shall know them by their fruits. >> reporter: while trump is taking the fight to the airwa s airwaves, they believe cruz will be one on the ground. volunteers try to make 1200 calls a day. >> this is what we're convinced wins iowa. >> reporter: but iowa, nor new hampshire have ever seen a campaign or a candidate like trump. >> what was that? is that a dog? >> hillary. >> uh-oh, it's hillary. >> reporter: and trump has three events today here in iowa. he says there will be a big announcement at the last event, the first event is in john wayne's hometown. george, it's about 9 degrees. it will be an outdoor rally. i hope trump has layered some of those navy blue suits he loves. >> jon karl will talk more about
7:05 am
it. it cannot be more engaged. trump unloaded on cruz. cruz doing the same thing to trump but what about this factor now, these talk show hosts like rush limbaugh weighing in. >> reporter: we may have reached a pivotal point where those influential sizes on talk radio are starting to turn on donald trump. until now these have been some of trump's most reliable cheerleaders but in the latest fight they are siding with ted cruz, not just rush limbaugh, mark levine yesterday said trump should cut the crap with his attacks on cruz so that new york values attack from cruz drove people right back to what trump himself said 20 years ago as you know he said he was pro-abortion rights, open to gay marriage because he is from new york, not from iowa, this is the attack that could really hurt 2ru6r7. >> evangelical voters could make all the difference in iowa. you saw that direct pitch yesterday at liberty university from trump. >> reporter: yeah, now, evangelicals have never been the core constituency for trump.
7:06 am
he said he never asks god for forgiveness. yesterday at liberty, he did something we hear from on the trail a lot, lumping together his book, "the art of the deal" with the bible. listen to this. >> i always say, a deep, deep second to the bible, the bible is the best, the bible, the bible blows it away. there's nothing like the bible but "the art of the deal" was the best-selling business book and obama didn't read it. >> reporter: cruz is on the rise largely because he is winning among evangelicals, although, george, i have to say if you look at national polls, the most recent still has trump with a big lead among evangelicals nationwide. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. >> george, as you know republicans on the campaign trail taking aim at the white house over that prisoner swap with iran and while the families of those freed americans are celebrating what their loved ones another family is feeling betrayed. abc's brian ross is here with that. good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning, robin.
7:07 am
that's right. the criticism is coming not only from republican presidential candidates but from the family of the one american who was not part of the deal, the american left behind. under the deal, the u.s. released from prison seven men convicted of helping iran's nuclear program and dropped charges against 14 more. republicans are calling it a bad one-sided deal. >> fact is we shouldn't have to trade anything to get our citizens back home. >> we've got to take our head at how it's happening. >> reporter: no one more upset with the obama administration than the family of the american seen in this hostage video who was not part of the deal. >> please help me. >> reporter: former fbi agent bob levinson who disappeared in iran almost nine years ago. the family heard the news on television, not from the white house. >> i'm very disappointed, i'm -- feel extremely betrayed by them. they have done nothing to get in touch with me other than after i asked them to. >> reporter: levinson's wife
7:08 am
christine and son dan said the white house has gone back on its word. >> we have been given assurances over the years that my dad would be a top priority to get him home as much as everybody else if not more because he's been held for almost nine years. >> reporter: a senior administration official tells abc news that levinson was part of the negotiations, but that the u.s. does not know why he was not ultimately included in the swap. mrs. levinson, do you consider whether bob might have died in captivity. >> no, i will never consider that until i have proof. i believe every day he's trying to come home to our family. we will never give up. >> reporter: the white house says the iranians have promised to determine the whereabouts of levinson, something the iranians know full well and have known since he was first taken captive almost nine years ago. >> my heart goes out to the levinson family. that water crisis in flint, michigan, where dozens of national guardsmen are on the ground this morning and new lawsuits set to be filed this afternoon.
7:09 am
abc's alex perez has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, the flint water scandal erupting, protesters rallying outside michigan governor rick snyder's home. class action lawsuits expected to be filed today against city and state officials over the ongoing water crisis. newly revealed e-mails show when officials switched the water source from lake huron to the flint river they waited nearly five months to warn the public of the toxic levels of lead created by the switch. >> my baby and i, we breaking out in itching from bathing in the water. i don't like the idea my baby can't drink. >> reporter: the state attorney general now investigating why it took the governor and other officials so long to respond. >> every day -- >> reporter: president obama declaring a federal emergency here, national guard troops pouring into flint to pass out water and filters. even celebrities now trying to help residents share teaming up with a company to donate more than 180,000 bottles of water,
7:10 am
tweeting, maybe fellow artists will help flint, and one of the city's most famed son, filmmaker michael moore calling for the governor of michigan to be arrested. >> we're all angry. this was purposely done. they knew it was poisoned. they knew it was toxic. >> reporter: the system has been switched back to lake huron water but the river damaged the pipe system so badly, water is still not safe to drink. and officials here say it could be months before the water is safe to drink. the governor is expected to tackle this tonight in his state of the state address, robin. >> looking forward to that, all right, alex, thank you. now to those plunging gas prices happening all over the country. take a look at this. the price war in michigan sending prices dipping to 47 cents a gallon. abc's rebecca jarvis is here with more on this and, rebecca, how low will they go. >> so low, robin, good morning. most of the country isn't going to be paying quite the same as those customers at that gas station in northern michigan,
7:11 am
but prices this week should drop another 10 to 20 cents. the national average this morning is now $1.89, 48 states have seen prices drop this year and gas buddy is forecasting we will save an additional $17 billion at the pump this year. it's great news for consumers, robin, but, of course, there is the other side to this story. >> yes, there always is. there is a downside to those low prices. what is it? all the people who are employed by energy companies, because prices have dropped so far, so fast, it also puts their jobs in jeopardy so we do think of them this morning too, robin. >> we do keep that in mind, rebecca, thank you. to that scandal in pro tennis overshadowing the australian open. tennis officials are denying the allegations of match fixing and some of the sport's biggest stars demand answers. ryan smith here with the story. >> the australian open is in full swing but this scandal is dominating the headlines, even serena williams speaking out saying she was totally unaware of it and all of her opponents
7:12 am
seem to play hard but now more stars on the hard court want to know exactly who has tainted their game. this morning, it's not the play at the australian open garnering headlines, but the reports from the bbc and buzzfeed which allege that tennis authorities suppressed evidence of match fixing by players. failing to investigate around 26,000 suspicious matches. this morning, the sport's top stars, roger federer and andy murray speaking out. wanting to know just who was involved. >> i would love to hear names, you know, then, at least it's concrete stuff and you can actually debate about it. >> it's bad obviously, you want to be made aware of the people that are, you know, potentially involved in this. >> reporter: while the association of tennis professionals deny the allegations players were paid tens of thousands of dollars to deliberately throw matches. buzzfeed said they have text messages that prove it. >> the evidence actually included 82 text messages that one of these players had
7:13 am
exchanged with the ringleader of the sicilian gambling syndicate. >> millions and millions of bucks are bet on it and tennis is the easiest to fix because it involves one person. >> reporter: novak djokovic admitted someone on his team was approached in 2007 about throwing a first round match in exchange for $200,000. >> i was not approached directly and, of course, we -- we threw it away right away. it didn't even get to me. >> reporter: he and other stars like murray say it's hypocritical while players are coming under such scrutiny a major sponsor of the australian open is william hill, a british betting agency where you can bet on the winner of matches, sets and games. that gambling sponsor william hill is not implicated in the scandal. they're saying their partnership is part of the solution to integrity issues, not part of the problem. how much gambling is there in tennis? according to aussie betting company tab corp $16 million
7:14 am
were wagered on the australian open on the first day, guys. >> betting just on a game. >> it could be games, set, matches. that's part of the allegations here. >> wow, okay, thanks very much. amy with today's other top stories. a traffic nightmare in san francisco. >> the famous bay bridge is finally back open after a crowd protesting police brutality blocked traffic. they drove their cars onto the bridge and stopped one in each lane before then chaining themselves together. police eventually cut those chains and arrested 25 protesters. well, crews searching for 12 marines missing off the coast of hawaii have found four life rafts in the water but so far no sign of those marines. they've all been missing since last thursday when their helicopters apparently collided during a training mission. and a new warning about climate change, scientists say the oceans are warming up faster than previously thought. they say since 1997 the world's oceans have absorbed the same amount of heat energy as they absorbed in the previous 130 years raising more concern about

7:36 am
>> he was scared. she told him to get back in the car. >> reporter: just days before in another text message carter writing, don't be scared. you're finally to be happy in heav heaven. >> it's inconceivable. i don't understand how someone could do that, to encourage someone they claim to love. >> reporter: roy had attempted suicide and had been hospital e hospitalized before he even met carter and in one text message two weeks before his suicide, he expressed his desire to take his own life, writing, i can't get better, i already made my decision. the defense now trying for a second time to have the involuntary manslaughter charge dropped. >> he has, in fact, brainwashed her to the point where she's now accepting his idea of this is my only option. >> reporter: in a statement to abc news, the defense says, michelle's communications were by no means threatens and that roy made his own conscious decision to take his own life.

adding, this is a tragedy, not a crime. carter is due in court next month. if convicted she faces up to 20 years in prison. george. >> okay, linzie. those texts are so horrifying to read. does this brainwashing offense have a chance of getting the charges dismissed? >> yeah, this is not an easy case for prosecutors primarily because of the law meaning prosecutors are going to have to show ha she caused his death, now, if there was an assisted suicide ban in massachusetts the way there are in more than half the states it would be much easier. they'd have to prove she helped, encouraged, assisted. they don't have that kind of law in massachusetts. so they're charging her with involuntary manslaughter which makes it a much harder case. >> it may not go to trial. >> it's possible a court will ultimately throw it out. >> you're launching a new website. >> lawnuwz with a "z." a big piece on whether i think the two defendants in ma"making
