reporter: tonight at stake for these candidates, 44 delegates at the democratic national convention. 30 at the r.n.c. aixa diaz, wmur news 9. jean: thanks. several candidates are counting on a strong showing in iowa. wmur political director josh mcelveen has more on those contenders tonight, he's continuing our live coverage from desmoines tonight. josh? josh: yes, it's hard to believe that after months of campaigning the debates, the town hams, the diner stops, 2016 election cycle gets under way officially with the start of the iowa caucuses. for the frontrunners they're looking for a solid finish to solidify their position atop their respective fields and carry that into new hampshire. the primary itself of course. but for other candidates it make or break in a washington a lot like ohio governor kasich is betting on new hampshire, putting his focus on the granite state to do well. there are three candidates and they're familiar names who are
5:03 pm
life into what are fading campaigns. >> i think we've proven our electability over the years, and, against the long odds four years ago. reporter: it's been a humbling year for the winner of the iowa caucuses, and rick santorum is trying to stay 'this race one vote at a time. >> so my message to the people of iowa is practice what you preach. don't compromise. vote for who you think is the best candidate. reporter: a couple months ago it was dr. ben carson who was the rising star the iowa, but since then his stock has dropped amid campaign troubles and the fickle nature of voters. >> i'm willing to do what makes sense for our society. reporter: as for mike huckabee, his campaign could be considered lackluster compared to 2008. but even in rare appearances in new hampshire, he admits that iowa this time around is his focus. after tonight there is a real chance that none of these three
5:04 pm
momentum or money to move on. or one could be a surprise heading into new hampshire. of course in the big republican field there's also that middle tier of candidates who really just need to avoid a disastrous result in iowa in order to move on, among them rand paul and carly fiorina. coming up at 6:00 we'll hear from them and we'll also show you what's been a very frenzied day here ahead of the iowa caucuses tonight. a lot of candidates covering a lot of ground. josh mcelveen. back to you. jean: you've been in iowa now for several days. what differences do you see with the candidates campaigning in iowa versus here in new hampshire? josh: ideologically there's a couple differences, obviously iowa is viewed as a more conservative state, historically going toward the conservative candidate. new hampshire is viewed as more independent. but the biggest difference logistically and strategically is geography.
5:05 pm
new hampshire. so they spend a lot of times in cars and on the phones rather than being at town halls. and it goes for reporters as well. jean: i bet it does. we'll share that same frenzy, thanks, josh mcelveen, live in desmoines tonight. news 9 will have put results from tonight's caucuses as soon as they're released. you will also find a special live wire on our website and mobile app tonight with live updates from our crews in iowa. tom: one wild card in iowa tonight is the weather. part of the state is under a blizzard warning right now. the worst snow shouldn't arrive though in late into the night, but it could cause big problems for candidates hoping to get out of iowa in the morning tomorrow. but they'll be greeted by very different conditions when they arrive in the granite state. temperatures were in the 50's today across the southern tier, that plenty plenty of play time in places like livingston park in manchester. they're still skiing at macintyre, and all those ski
5:06 pm
to open a little rate this year and ticket sales are off by 20%. it's been a very unusual winter so far. >> we're in the home stretch, i hope. i looking forward to spring days. tom: so how warm did it get today? here's mike haddad. mike: so warm this winter season so far, so why not kick off february with close to record high temperatures in spots, 60 plus in some areas including manchester, nashua, rochester and portsmouth all at 60 or above today. 58 in concord, a few shy of the record for the date and that's 61 in portsmouth, five off the february 1st. even up north it hit the 50's washington. it is beginning to cool down a still above the average for normal daytime highs. you notice the cooler air drifting in through the midwest
5:07 pm
that's why they're concerned for blizzard conditions. across the northeast, by the time this system approaches here by the middle of the week it will be too warm to support anything but rain or maybe just a little bit of a mix early in the morning. speaking of warmth that we had in the day today, what about the month of january, we all know it was warm, but here's josh with a look at some of those numbers. josh: it really has been a warm january, nobody disputes that, except the numbers tell us something that we might not have expected. this is a list of the top five januaries in terms of temperatures, the highest temperatures ever recorded in january. take a look at this. 1932, 1818, number three is 1913. then 1933. and 1917 as well. and 37 rather. take a look at. that where are we, because the average snowfall
5:08 pm
all these years below average snow as well. where are we this month? january 2016, 18th place with an average temperature of 26.9. these are all much higher than that and we have 8 inches of snow. it was mild, well above average and lower snow than average, but we came in at 18th place overall. tom: thank you very much. right now an active investigation is norway in rochester after an assault at a sports bar there, it happened early sunday morning, and as wmur's jennifer crompton reports, the victim remains in serious condition. reporter: gary's sports bar and lounge in rochester was quiet monday afternoon, employees not saying much. about an incident there called in to police about 1:30 sunday morning. >> i came in, there was a disturbance in the parking lot. reporter: the victim was taken
5:09 pm
portland in serious condition. police are not confirming whether or not the people involved had been patrons or if they knew each other. >> it was a physical fight, can't disclose whether there were weapons involved. reporter: police would like to speak with any witness hose might have left before they arrived. >> at this point we've identified many of the key involved participants in this incident, so we do have our identities, we have several witnesses and we're still actively investigating this. tom: that was jennifer crompton reporting. police aren't calling anyone a suspect just yet. but they don't believe that the public is in any danger. jean: let's turn to the traffic watch and see how our ride home is shaping up as we start a new work week here in february. live pictures in manchester, this is 293 near exit 5.
5:10 pm
with a look at the evening commute. >> hi, tom and jean. one problem to our south in massachusetts on 49 r5 northbound, a rollover accident between exits 50 and 51. just took place aa while ago, so use calling through that stretch. 495 northbound pretty much from the, up to route 110 is slow as you're approaching the state line. once you get past that it's a good ride on 93 all the way up to 293 in manchester and no problems around the city. slight slowdowns in concord. the everett turnpike building volume between nashua up to merrimack and 101 west, your usual slowdowns at the light at 114. no problems to the seacoast and the spaulding turnpike is starting to get heavy in both directions. the reports being brought to you by dunkin' donuts. i'm peggy james for 95.7, wzid. jean: thanks, peggy. all eyes on iowa tonight but several candidates have already

5:12 pm
so, let me get this straight -- u.s. cellular has the phone you're looking for, a network that's built to give you coverage way out here where the other guys don't, and 6 gigs for only $40 a month. that's a lot less than verizon and at&t. so, why on earth would you ever go with one of those other guys? switch to u.s. cellular now and get 6 gigs of data for $40 a month plus get $300 back.
5:13 pm
tom: commitment 2016 again, the iowa caucuses begin in a couple hours. but some candidates have already left the hawkeye state to campaign here in new hampshire. jean: bush, christie and kasich are all here tonight. wmur's heather hamel spent the day with kasich who has made it clear he's counting on the granite state. reporter: governor kasich says he had to use his time wisely and he felt in a smaller state like new hampshire he had a better chance of meeting more people. and that's exactly what he was doing again today. >> there's our new logo, looks pretty good. very nice. i want to thank the academy, wayne to thank my family. reporter: laughing and joking as
5:14 pm
kasich took on his 88th town halle vebility in greenland monday. >> this is not like going to the dentist. we try to make sure people enjoy themselves when they come to these. reporter: speaking on his tour bus, he said a strong ground game is key. >> i'm not a celebrity candidate, i'm just the governor of ohio. so this is a place where we thought we could really gain traction, and we are. reporter: he says one of the contributing factors may be his positive approach. monday even poking fun at some of the negative ads targeting him. >> look at all the good pictures of me, these are good pictures, wow, my gosh, i'm in every gosh darn one here. look at this. i sided with obama, argh. reporter: he says he was upset this morning when he found out a super pac who supports him planned on airing an ad featuring senator ayotte and blasting marco rubio. his campaign fired back and the ad was pulled.
5:15 pm
everybody take your negative stuff off the air, tell people what you want to do and don't spend your time trashing somebody else. reporter: kasich is focusing on getting all the support he can. >> if i get smoked here i'm going to ohio and that's the end of it, but i don't think that's going to happen. reporter: if all goes as planned kasich will reach 100 town hall meetings in new hampshire come this friday. jean: chris christie is holding a town hall in hopkinton right now. these are live pictures from that event as it happens, and when it's over he'll be heading south for another town hall and a rally tonight in nashua. tom: jeb bush is also back in the granite state tonight, he has a town hall in manchester starting at 6:30. the republicans will debate each other in new hampshire before our primary next week. saturday's debate will be held at st. anselm college. you can watch it right here on wmur. new hampshire's primary is one week from tomorrow.

5:17 pm
of the record 62. notice sunset time, 4:58, two more days we hit 5:00 as the day light hours continue to stretch out each and every day. radar scopes nice and quiet. there was a cool front slipping to the south, so temperatures are beginning to fall off. but having said that we still remain well above the norm at least through the next several days. that means the next storm that moves on in here much more in the way of rain as opposed to a mix or even wet snow. right now down at 16 atop mount washington, upper 30's near 40 in the great north woods. 40's for many, still a couple of low 50's in manchester, nashua and portsmouth for the next few minutes before you dip down into the mid to upper 40's. fair skies, cool tonight, but still above the norm. the average low this time of rear around 12 or 13. again we'll be well above that by early tomorrow morning, near 20 north to around 30 in southeastern new hampshire. now, there is some cooler air building in, but not
5:18 pm
we don't have any arctic air at weekend. that means the next storm that is producing snow in parts of the plains states and eventually will split iowa with heavy snow and blizzard conditions in the northwest side and rain to the southeast of the capital, that system by the time it gets in here will be mostly in the form of rain. early wednesday morning, there could be a touch of wet snow north and a slight chance of an icy mix near the morning commute on wednesday in central and southern new hampshire. sunshine tomorrow. a little light snow early wednesday. anything that falls prior to 9:00, 9:30 could be sleet or freezing rain in central, southern new hampshire. but take a look at that wall of heavy rain that builds in for the midday and afternoon and into the early evening before it moves off to the east by later wednesday night. clearing, cooling down tonight, near 20 north, lower 30's south. here's a look at the next seven days, quite a few changes with the rain maker coming in here on wednesday, it colors out wednesday night. thursday looking good.
5:19 pm
cooler, we get to the weekend, it will be an arctic front that moves in, right now looks like the high temperatures sunday will be early in the day and temperatures fall off during the afternoon, a snow shower late saturday up north, anywhere saturday night early sunday morning, just a flurry or brief snow squall. monday for the most part quiet there. could be rain or snow coming in monday night or tuesday, but that is still a weak out. tom: a political storm could be abrewing, we know that's for sure. coming up next, candidates weigh in on how to bridge the political divide in washington. jean: and at 5:30, the issue of
5:20 pm
jean: in more commitment 2016 coverage we ask the candidates what their number one priority will be in the white house. >> obviously the white house first responsibility is to keep america safe, and i think iran is the principal one we have to be concerned about. and creating opportunities for working families to do better, you know, create opportunities for american workers. you do those three things, america is going to be a much better place.
5:21 pm

5:22 pm
we need to declare war on the overreach of regulations and freeze in place or eliminate rules so that the entrepreneurial spirit of our country rises again. we need to restore america's leadership in the world. i would on the very first day i would announce that we were closing the embassy in havana and opening the embassy in jerusalem to send a signal to our friend, we got your back, we're back. to our enemies, you have to earn our support and our respect. we want to make sure we live in a peaceful world, but oh we're not going to unilaterally concede things just because we think you're going to change. you have to change first before you improve your relations with the united states. >> key priority is saving the next generation. we're about to destroy them with debt. and thomas jefferson said it's immoral to pass debt onto the next generation. if we could bring him back to the day he would stroke out doing.
5:23 pm
i'm not willing to increase the budget by one penny. for the next three years. if you just did that one thing alone you would have a balanced budget. in addition to that, you know, cutting back, you have 4.1 million federal employees, tens of thousands that retire each year don't rehire, just shift people around to critical positions. we have 645 federal agencies and sub agencies. all of them have fat in them, we need to reduce them in a way that doesn't hurt the people and in previous administration they were told do it in the a way that hurts the people most so that nobody will be talking about cutting budgets. jean: we'll hear from more candidates coming up in the next half-hour. tom: also ahead, the iowa caucuses are getting an upgrade. results will be tallied in a new way this year.

"i'm listening to you, i'm
5:25 pm
i'm going to deliver." i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. car repairs, home improvements, a family trip's not easy to afford them. what did marco rubio do? he put $22,000 in personal expenses on a republican party credit card. rubio's bad judgment caused a scandal and for five years rubio refused to release the credit card records. major votes... all over the place on immigration... bad judgment. he's just not ready to be president.

5:32 pm
our politics. >> the notion that you can unite the country as a promise is more of an illusion than a reality. >> sure, there have been major bipartisan achievements in decades past. but it's not always the case that the country makes progress simply when the parties and people of good will come together. reporter: sometimes big things can get done with one party in doesn't like it. the bush tax cut, wall street reform, and obamacare to name a few. the bipartisan policy center set up a 29-member commission to study polarization in america. among the recommendations that the president hold regular monthly meetings with congressional leaders. i'm sally kidd. tom: we want to know what you think of the partisan divide in the u.s. go to the wmur facebook page to weigh in on this issue and share your thoughts on how to address the problem.
