sunday next week. >> brand new numbers just came to fox. on the early voting picture in florida. and if they are any indication, republican voters there are very motivated. we are live at fox reports tonight. >> four men in the same fight to become the republican presidential nominee. and now the political punches flying in florida with two of them aiming at each other. >> and he has a basic policy of carpet bombing his opponent. he doesn't try to build up mitt romney, he just are tries to teardown whoever he is running against. >> the reason the speaker is having a hard time in florida is the people in florida have watch the debates, have listened to the speaker, and have listened to the other candidates and said, you know what, mitt romney is the person we going to
7:01 pm
support. >> in a moment, our team of journalists live in the sunshine state. and also they came in waves. collisions on both sides ever a major highway. many drivers with no chance to stop before it was too late. fox report. finger pointing now to the likely cause for multiple deaths on this interstate. and a guardian angel standing by. when these two took a wrong turn into what would have been a wattry grave. >> i said i don't know where i am. and then i saw the light. >> fox news is america's election headquarters, and here we go. >> people in florida being heard loud and clear already. as we are learning they have now cast more than 500,000 votes, when you add up both with early and absentee ballots. a half million votes and the republican primary there is tuesday. former house speaker newt gingrich and former massachusetts governor mitt romney covering as much ground as they can there in less than 48 hours to go.
7:02 pm
romney at several rallies today. gingrich making the rounds on the sunday talk shows after picking up an endorsement from herman cain. and dole called gingrich a one man band, who has ideas, quote, are off the wall, end quote. and as you know dole ran for president back in 1996 and lost to bill clinton. fox news chris wallace asking gingrich about dole's comments. >> we tried a moderate in 1996, and he couldn't debate bill clinton effectively and he lost. we tried a moderate in 2008. he couldn't debate barack obama effective and we lost. i think if we nominate a moderate today, the gap between romneycare and obamacare is about that big and it will be hard for him to defend himself. >> taking a few jabs at gingrich and then shifting focus, mostly criticizing president obama. >> on my day one i will repeel
7:03 pm
obamacare and get back to free people making free choices for their own healthcare. >> chief political correspondent karl cameron joins us by phone from kampa tonight. the polls now showing at this hour mitt romney with a sizable advantage just two days out. what did he have to say today? >> well, it's a sizable advantage, indeed double digits in the latest policy and double digits in the most recent follows. and romney is playing like a frontrunner coast to go victory. he's been working it awfully hard, trying to make sure all his voters are ready to get to the policy on tuesday. on the sump, and shaking hands, he's been counterattacking newt gingrich's assaults on his character, his record, and hiss trust worthiness, having been in gingrich's words a massachusetts moderate. there's been debate audiences and they talk about the campaign attacks. today romney called gingrich out on it. listen. >> so mr. speaker, your trouble
7:04 pm
in florida is not because the audience is too quiet or too loud or because you have opponents that are tough, your problem in florida is that you worked for freddie mac at a time freddie mac was not doing the right thing for the american people, and that you were selling influence in washington at a time we needed people to stand up for the truth in washington. >> there's no disputing that romney is vastly outspending newt gingrich. when you combine the romney's campaigns own ads with the pro romney super pac, it's over $17 million worth of commercials. whereas newt gingrich's campaign and the super pac that backed him as spent just a little bit over five. harris. >> karl, you again are joining us by phone, criss-crossing the state and keeping up with the candidates. gingrich is going on the attack but is it enough to pull off an upset. >> it will be tough. the gingrich campaign, and the speaker himself has said no matter what happens to florida they will continue to campaign. he suggested he will be around for weeks or months, even going all the way to the convention.
7:05 pm
and he has been hitting mitt romney from every conceivable angle today. here's just a campbell. >> i have had a long record as a very hard-hitting reagan conservative. and the idea that that record would be deliberately falsified by a massachusetts moderate using money from wall street from the very companies who have been getting money from the federal government is really about as big an outrage as i have had in my career. i look forward to the next couple weeks. this debate is going to go on. >> and gingrich is casting himself as theanti establishment outsider, not with be standing his lifetime career in d.c., with a pop lift message that has even put him adopts with the likes of john dole and mccain. and others in the past as he sets himself up as the candidate best to take down mitt romney and ultimately barack obama, as well. >> karl cameron, we will let you get back out on the trail there.

7:07 pm
think that's very healthy. but i really believe we will do quite well there and a very good chance of winning. >> ron paul says he has no intention of dropping out of the race and he has no plans to get behind any other candidate anytime soon. don't forget, about 48 hours from now fox news will be in the middle of its special coverage of the florida primary. catch it from the start at 6:00 p.m. eastern on tuesday. bret baier, megyn kelly and our entire political team on the job. now to growing tensions over iran's unusual leer program a group of international experts on the ground right now in iran. they are there to investigate concerns that that country may be working on developing a nuclear weapon. iranian officials have strongly denied they are trying to build nucs. they insist their research is for medical reasons and. the european union threatening to impose an oil embargo if iran

7:32 pm
ventilator from pneumonia. >> absolutely we do. i put out on my fox facebook page we were going to be opening up the questions and this was a popular question, last night herman cain threw his support behind newt gingrich. how much of a difference could a mccain endorsement make in florida? >> it's -- could a cain endorsement be in floor. >> it's hard to figure out. newt gingrich has a tough hill to climb with the policy opening tuesday morning. we can't forget that herman cain won a very influential and important straw poll in orlando in september. it was called the republican party of florida's presidency five gala. there was a big debate and cain won that straw poll and it was really kind of the apex of his surge in the policy. he got buffer getted with criticism because of allegations of sexual harassment and affairs, which he denied, but
7:33 pm
when he dropped out of the race he was down to low single digits. while he can certainly happy newt gingrich by rallying tea partyers, it's not as if he has an existing infrastructure beyond that. newt gingrich needs all the help he can get. herman cain will provide buzz with it. but gingrich is now already saying things like he's looking forward to campaigning in other states. once we get out of florida, by the way, the gingrich folks believe the next battleground will be in minnesota. some of newt gingrich's attacks on mitt romney have perhaps not been as impact full as they were in south carolina. for instance, in south carolina it's well-documented from the exit polls and the polls themselves that the attack on mitt romney's days in private equity and at bain capital were very potent in south carolina. here in florida there are some policy that suggest as many as 75% of republican voters weren't particularly moved by those criticisms. so endorsements and herman
7:34 pm
cain's support, the attacks back and forth on character, et cetera, it will be a frenzied final day on the campaign trail and tuesday as the candidates make their final push for involvements but in the end, newt gingrich, rick santorum and ron paul have all said they are going to continue to campaign. romney would love a knockout put away punch and he's been ramping up his own rhetoric trying to ramp up the score against gingrich. the beauty of the election is, we have to wait to see what happens. >> i remember former minnesota candidate tim pawlenty, that's his stomping grounds. he has supported mitt romney. itit will be interesting from here. but all eyes on you, karl, and florida on tuesday. >> thank you. >> it was a tragedy place said didn't have to happen. three people including an 18-month-old baby are dead after

7:38 pm
>> basically the reason why it's been so mild for most of this winter across the country is because our jet stream has stayed right along the u.s.-canada border. what that means the cold air has stayed over canada and south of the jet stream we have all the mimed air. tomorrow that's what we are looking at across the country. rapid city, 57 will be the high tomorrow. that's almost 25 degrees what is average. kansas city well above average tomorrow at 66 degrees. as we head into mechanics weekend we will be looking at a change in the pattern as the jet stream continues to dip down areas across the great lakes and northeast will be looking at cooler temperatures. the southwest and northwest you will still be looking at the generally above-average temperatures. a big story has been the pileup across florida because of the wildfire and all that smoke across parts i-75. unfortunately there's no relief coming up as far as additional precipitation to help put out fires across parts of central florida and south 1/2. we are looking at elevate the danger for fire danger not only
7:39 pm
today but tomorrow. >> i'm glad you touched on that. you talked about the fire down in miami but i don't know if you could hear the ltd. that joined us by phone also mentioned fog. >> fog, and it was also nighttime. when you have the wildfire, all the smoke and the breezy conditions. the breezy conditions pushed the smoke on to the highways so it's obviously a very hard to see when you are driving. >> but the fog typical for this area? >> yeah. >> for this time of the year. maria, thank you very much. a class field trip turns into a rescue mission. a man saved from being stuck in several feet of mud he says for three days. and that's just the beginning of the story. it has a twist. and she was once -- she was the president's guest at the state of the union. but that was not the only highlight of samantha garbe's week. there was once a homeless person in her family but not homeless anymore. ♪ i say to you come home come
