7:06 am
lot of people this came as a surprise. since you have been at so many events, was it a surprise? >> we have been seeing over the past few weeks is been much higher. i point to one rally in new orleans before that. that primary on tuesday. he was there on monday night. of protesters in the crowd. it is not just the frequency and number of protesters, but the way they are acting toward them. are saying that trump's rhetoric is emboldening them. if you let me set the stage n the arena last night across thefloor, there were multiple sections filled with protesters ready to disrupt. with the goal of disrupting and even cancelling the rally, to say he won't be here in downtown chicago. when that announcement was made, clashes with protesters and supporters. that continued out on the this tension has been here.
7:07 am

7:09 am
that's why i'm working so hard to defeat donald trump. we have to defeat fair and square at the ballot box. the only one capable of doing that is ted cruz. that's why i endorsed him i'm working very hard to win the nomination. these scenes are unhelpful. it is clear in chicago that organizing specifically to disrupt this rally, it is also clear that tone is set at the top. this tone that is being set top of the trump campaign is not helpful to our party. it is not helpful to our nation. i said the very week that donald trump announced he does not represent me and he does not represent my party. so we have to defeat him. >> when we look at ted cruz, you are campaigning for now,ell in the south. he has done well in caucus states. as we head now into the

7:11 am
that is why you heardump say maybe we shouldn't have anymore debates. he doesn't want to debated cruz. the reason he doesn't want to debated tedse ted cruz stayed on pace and policy. he doesn't talk about body parts or spray tans or hurled issue is substance and these are serious times in america. we need to talk about substance and policies and reforms in donald trump doesn't have a lot to say. >> mrs. fiorina, if trump does become the presidential nominee, do you endorse him or him? >> he's not going to be the republican nominee because we're going to beat him. >> that was not a yes or no. thank you. appreciate your time on this saturday morning. >> thank you so much. >> turning our attention to the devastating scene in the south where nonstop rains are causinglooding for tens of
