12:04 pm
in a moment, last minute efforts on behalf of pete buttigieg and picking someone who was an elizabeth warren. establishment candidate. you will hear from them, next. ♪ for many of these voters, the he wanted a man cave in our new home. decision is, should i go with my head or go with my heart? but she wanted to be close to nature. so, we met in the middle. the head candidate seems to be joe biden and the heart ohhhhh! look who just woke up! candidate at this point seems to be somewhere along the lines of you are so cute! bernie sanders, pete buttigieg or amy klobuchar. but one thing we could both agree on was getting geico that's what will make tonight really interesting. to help with homeowners insurance. >> how often does this whole yeah, it was really easy and we saved a bunch of money. impeachment thing come up here? oh, you got it. you are such a smart bear! >> you don't hear that much. call geico and see how easy saving on homeowners they are concerned about local and condo insurance can be. issues and concerned about beating donald trump come i don't think that the voters here i felt gross. who are democrats who are eager it was kind of a shock after i started cosentyx. to see trump go feel that they have learned anything four years clear. real people with psoriasis particularly new about donald trump. they loathe him to begin with look and feel better with cosentyx. and i'm sure that they load him don't use if you're allergic to cosentyx. before starting, get checked for tuberculosis. now. their concern about the question that marshall touched on was an increased risk of infections should they be preoccupied with and lowered ability to fight them may occur. the candidate who was with him tell your doctor about an infection or symptoms, on all the issues? if your inflammatory bowel disease symptoms develop or worsen, >> my sense is we will get an or if you've had a vaccine or plan to. idea about where the serious allergic reactions may occur.
12:05 pm
democratic party is after ask your dermatologist about cosentyx. tonight's outcome. is it far left or is it just center left? >> will first of all, you are in iowa. you have to think about college towns and bernie sanders will take advantage of a lot of that young people energy. that will turn them out big time in those caucuses. when you look at who bernie has, i'm not sure it defines the democratic party. the democratic party in fact if you ask people and posts, will say they are monitorin moderater conservative democrats. that's particularly among young people. >> i don't know. i just got here from miami. >> we are going to get three sets of tallies tomorrow night. we will get an initial tally of everybody who goes to the
12:06 pm
caucuses first choice and that will be the closest thing to a primary that i always had in forever. i think that will be a very interesting number because it will look a lot like a primary will look. everything after that is based upon who votes for which candidates, and that is always what we had before, a test estimated delicate comic delegate total. the raw vote was something new. iowa does not count for much in terms of delegates, that's not a big delegate hall. so what iowa has always been able to do is to win over the field and give the first sentence were where the voter sentiment is. it's a momentum race. whoever gives that number seems to me they could claim momentum. i know there will be arguments about that but -- >> it's called
12:07 pm
first alignment realignment and then the state equivalent. >> i think the bernie sanders folks feel like they are under siege so they've been told do not claim victory on that first let me tell you something, i wouldn't be here if i thought reverse mortgages round. but if they are in you your took advantage of any american senior, shoes, they feel like everybody is out to get them. or worse, that it was some way to take your home. learn how homeowners are strategically using a they say later on, they won that reverse mortgage loan to cover expenses, first round. >> isn't that the same, whoever pay for healthcare, preserve your portfolio and so much more. gets the most votes should win? a reverse mortgage loan >> that's a complaint that isn't some kind of trick to take your home. bernie's people have had all along. i remember hillary wins here, it's a loan, like any other. big difference is how you pay it back. but in terms of delegate find out how reverse mortgages really work with aag's free, no-obligation reverse mortgage guide. allocation, and you go in other with a reverse mortgage, you can pay whatever you can, states, west virginia and other places and they always felt that when it works for you, or, you can wait, and pay it off in one lump sum when you leave your home. the allocation of delegates discover the option that's best for you.
12:08 pm
somehow favored hillary clinton. call today and find out more. >> this is the week ahead. i'm proud to be a part of aag, this is the week where we are. i trust em, i think you can too. we have the impeachment closing arguments that are ongoing and we have the state of the union, then you have a final impeachment vote on wednesday. >> bill: and team fox coverage you are a man who has been here on the nation's first before. presidential contest continues. just think about these news events in the way they are stacked up with this. what's happening today mike? >> it's been like this. >> hey there, bill. pardon the car alarm, i had to we are seeing things that we've go off right before we went live but mayor buttigieg will be never seen before ever. wrapping it up at this gym that this week and events like this you see at drake university with a watch party here is the night by themselves would dominate almost anything we can use. it's like trying to drink water rolls on. he did the rounds this morning on cable news and local news and out of a fire hose, to cover even squeezed in a run this this and absorb it and then move onto the next thing. morning before getting in front of his volunteers. if people would be knocking on we've never seen anything like doors and headed to the caucus this before. to add to that the dimension of sites to give them a pep talk
12:09 pm
michael bloomberg's presence in and in the final hours all of that was money that far pete buttigieg says he's the guy that can be donald trump and a strong showing in iowa will demonstrate that he has enough support to do it. transcends anything we've ever seen. if we don't even begin to know pete buttigieg has been swiping yet what impact that will have. at the president and in his >> i was with some younger response to the servicemen who producers and folks that are working on the campaign here were injured by the iranian along with us on this missile strike. programming and we went to the >> for anyone who is in the post event and they said that was so 9/11 conflicts to hear the small. president of the united states they said that's a normal presidential iowa sort of crowd. say that traumatic brain injury is no big deal, when he took advantage of the fact that he several hundred or a couple thousand. was the son of a multibillionaire to fake a but living in, coming-of-age in disability to avoid serving when it was his turn. someone needs to challenge him the trump era, if you don't have on that and i'm prepared to go toe-to-toe with him on that. the entire stadium full there is no way you are going to win. he change the game in terms of >> pete buttigieg has avoided what people's expectations were for turnout and enthusiasm in a questions about second and third way that i don't think -- >> i place, saying only wants to have a strong showing in iowa. >> bill: thank you micah, car just want to make this one alarm is out. mike tobin did it all in 60 seconds. point. lisa cooney is with the among iowa caucus goers it's elizabeth warren campaign is in iowa as well. barely 20% of the population so what's happening? the numbers across the state are, one fifth with a good >> elizabeth warren may not be

>> former new york city mayor michael bloomberg not competing in iowa, new hampshire, nevada or south carolina but still very much wants to be in this race. that's a democratic presidential candidate's height and here's what the president said in an interview with sean hannity that aired on super bowl sunday. speak to you know, now he wants a box for the debates, to stand on. okay, that's okay, there's nothing wrong.
12:26 pm
why shouldn't they get a box to stand on? why -- does that mean everyone else get the box? >> i want to bring in kevin cheeky. kevin, good day to you. we will see eventually how effective that is. what about the ratings that you were given? and i just want to get your reaction. >> we said something that he knows to be a lie and stated as facts. it's incumbent on this president to say things that are just approved by a simple google search. why he has continued with it is beyond me. we haven't spoken to them about debates and we certainly expect and hope that he will. but the president obviously in an interview for the super bowl,
12:27 pm
he also lied about having two ads in the super bowl. >> i read he had to 32nd spots and it equaled out, both spent 10 million per campaign. i don't want to get into the weeds but did he ask for the box or not? >> he did not ask for a box. the president knows he didn't ask for a box. thankfully mike bloomberg doesn't have to worry about his stature. he stands twice as tall as this president and that's what mike bloomberg is running for. >> i'm interrupting you only because what you are saying is what michael bloomberg said earlier. he was in compton, california, and here is his comment to the whole black mike back and forth. >> i will stand on my accomplishments of what i have done to bring this country together and get things done.
12:28 pm
i have been doing it for a long time and i stand twice as tall as he does on the stage, on the stage that matters. this is what happens when somebody like me rises in the polls and all of a sudden the other candidates get scared and i think donald trump knows that i can beat him. >> there were some stories that popped at the end of last week about some changes that could be significant within the party itself, about the rules for a debate. and possibly even the superdelegate change. will that help michael bloomberg and is not something that is going to make a lot of bernie sanders supporters and elizabeth warren and others for that matter ticked off? >> while you are out in iowa and you would know better than i about what's going on out there. the democratic national committee did change the rules and they said that if you get 10% of the support in qualifying
12:29 pm
polls that you should qualify the debate. that's twice as much as what they allowed for last time and clearly if someone has 1 out of 10 voters or more in terms of support we should hear them on the debate stage. mike is expecting to qualify for that debate and we look forward to it. it super bowl monday, i think like you said before i went on, this game has now started and it will get interesting very quickly. >> kevin, you are up to $200 million, how high we go? >> like i said it, i will spend whatever it takes. >> which means what? >> it means i will spend whatever it takes. >> a billion or two? >> i have found mike will question every nickel and every dollar. but mike has never put an upper limit on what needs to be done. and that's one of the reasons he's never failed at anything he's done. >> i know you are gearing up for
12:30 pm
super tuesday. thank you kevin. here in des moines, meanwhile iowa historically as a make or break moment for most of the candidates this year. the caucus is going to be a little more complicated to because of some real changes. we will check from some campaigns and hear from the man who's in charge of the state democratic party. he is our guest coming back alive here in des moines, after this.

new fixodent ultra dual power provides you with an unbeatable hold and strong seal against food infiltrations. fixodent. and forget it. >> bill: we are just hours away from the first test for the 2020 candidates. democrats in iowa about to choose the person they can best take on president trump. we have team fox team coverage as we count down to the caucuses. i want to start with peter doocy, with the latest on the biting campaign. good day to you and good
12:35 pm
afternoon. >> good afternoon to you. joe biden turned out his biggest crowd in iowa that we had seen all cycle dating back to last year. he said he likes his chances there but he does not like questions about his son hunter's business dealings. >> don't you think that it's one of those things that people feel it's kind of sleazy? why would he have that job if not for who his father was? >> because he's a very bright guy. >> i guess the question i'm asking is whether it right? >> he said he regretted having done it. >> the biting campaign also moved quickly to squash nbc's story that biden surrogate john kerry was overheard at an iowa hotel telling somebody on the phone that he could still join the race if bernie sanders runs away the nomination. carrie eventually turned up at biden's event and tweeted this. as i told a reporter and nestle not running for president. any report otherwise is

categorically false. i'm proud to campaign with my good friend joe biden who is going to win the nomination and make an outstanding president. biden's closing argument this weekend is to build on obamacare without being a third term of obama and he continues talking to us about democratic rivals and more about president trump. his campaign headquarters tonight will be over at drake university which is where trump rally last week. that's also where the last democratic debate was held and he will be hoping for a better result than the last time he competed in the caucuses when he wound up dropping out on caucus night because of the low finish. he did pop up at a retail stop here in des moines a few hours ago, and it did seem like he was lowering expectations a little survive. the entire time but that certainly not predicting a win outright, although he says he doesn't want to do that because he is superstitious. >> got it.

will come indifferently tonight. we will see raw vote tallies from caucus sites in addition to the number of delegates that each candidate wins. that matters because in a caucus voters can start out supporting one candidate but then switched to another as a final choice. fox news will still use the delegate count to declare a winner but we will see how many people voted for the candidates. the man overseeing all of it has a lot to say. his tonight going to be clear based on that description or will he be clear as the mississippi river mud? >> our commitment that we made this year is to make our caucuses more transparent and we wanted to make sure that we could provide more information. that's part of the job that we have here in iowa, to do this year-long job interview and folks have asked as he more information over the course of the year so, this year we are

providing it. >> we will see with the candidates can do. at the end of the day this is a race for delegates. this is about who will get to 1,191 delegates on that first ballot in milwaukee. we will see how the delegates will break down and that will be the best major. >> state delegate equivalents. what was john kerry talking about? comments that folks are focused
