of the caucuses actually told precinct captains that ben carson was taking a break which might have caused some confusion or potential to cause confusion among ben carson supporters and that's what donald trump is complaining about. ted cruz, as you know brush ago side the criticism and his campaign did reach out to the ben carson folks to apologize for any confusion there. >> we know santorum dropped out. he had 20%, rand paul 5%. who is likely to pick up those votes now that those guys are out. >> reporter: it is unclear. we should know perhaps in the coming days if anyone will give away any endorsements. they had such small numbers and it is pretty disappointing. rand paul at the beginning of the campaign really thought they
especially since his dad ron paul and disappointing result there for him. rick santorum won the iowa caucuses in 2012 and really hoping to capitalize this time around and we will see this pattern of these campaigns really having that conversation and seeing how far their cash will take them as the field continues to winnow down. >> dan: scott mcclean live in new hampshire site of the democratic town hall. thank you for your time today. a lot is happening every day on the campaign trail. you can get the latest on cleveland 19 news mobile app, it is a freel download and you should check it out. a first for president obama today visiting a mosque in baltimore, maryland to correct what he called a hugely distorted impression of must americans coming on the heels of donald trump's proposeed must ban.
