winner of the iowa caucuses.. defeating her opponent, bernie sanders by a razor thin margin.. good evening. i'm lynn melling. thank you for joining us tonight. we'll get to caucus results and updates in just a moment.. but first.. a blizzard warning is in effect tonight for folks north and west of the metro.. that's on top of the snow that shut down schools across the state today. let's go straight to meteorologist brett mcintyre
the snow meant the morning commute in the metro was slow going... between six o'clock this morning, and 2- 30 this afternoon, the iowa state patrol says they responded to 26 weather related accidents. they took 44 other service calls in the metro... and over at the airport.. flights were cancelled this morning.. as the snow began to fly.. the des moines international airport saw a few canceled flights.. which created a headache for journalists and campaign staffers headed out of town after the iowa caucuses.. kevin foley says the airport will keep the runways clear, but cold temperatures could still affect flights... "ice, would be the worst possible situation for an aircraft. but snow decreases visibility and it
" after months of listening to stump speeches and meeting the white house hopefuls.. last night.. iowans turned out in droves to make their decisions about who they think should be their parties' presidential nominee.. democrats chose hillary clinton.. and republicans... chose ted cruz.. presidential candidate when the media said a conservative cannot win, nationwide over 800,000 contributions poured in as courageous conservatives said, 'yes we can!''' cruz was declared the winner early last night. donald trump finished three points behind him in second place ... marco rubio was one point behind trump in third. ben carson ... rand paul and jeb bush rounded out the next tier ... followed by carly fiorina ... john kasich ... and mike huckabee, who dropped out of the race last night. chris christie, rick santorum and jim gilmore were at the bottom of the pack. more than 180-thousand
... smashing the previous record high by 50-percent. and on the democratic side.. hillary clinton was the leading vote getter ... but by the narrowest of margins. the final tally from the democratic party gives clinton 49-point-eight- percent of the vote ... and bernie sanders 49-point-six-percent. that's the closest vote in iowa democratic party history. their only other opponent.. martin o'malley... also dropped out of the race last night.. the party says 171-thousand democrats turned out to caucus. to secure her victory hillary clinton had to revert to the luck of a coin toss ... six times! clinton reportedly won coin tosses at six caucus sites to break ers. the sanders camp says it doesn't have a problem with the coin toss tiebreaker. those are the rules and they knew them going in. but since the race was so close, the campaign is asking the democratic party to double check its numbers. the sanders folks are asking to look at the hard copy of the results from each precinct. the iowa democratic party says
because it isn't a straw poll or primary. in fact, most precincts didn't use paper forms... the results came in on says members of all three campaigns were there in person to be part of the verification process... 18:15:43 most of what was going on last night is we were flagging results that either our app caught that didn't quite seem right or the campaigns were hearing things that maybe we should check into this. so we would get together with them and we'd look into it an come to a resolution. so we wanted our recording process ot be as inclusive as possible to them and this morning, we were able to get to 100% reporting. our results are verified and they are final 03 doctor ben carson says his campaign was sabotaged as the caucus was getting underway... congressman steve king sent out this tweet... "carson looks like he is out. iowans need to know before they vote. most will go to cruz, i hope." king says the tweet was in reference to a c-n-n report saying carson would take a break following the caucuses.
dropping out.... mike dasilva has more.. carson's campaign manager tried to knock down the rumors last night...as voting was underway.... 20:36:30--40 so we're hearing rumblings that dr. carson is actually going to sit out new hampsire? can you address that? this started with a cnn report, which is just an abject lie after the results were in...carson addressed his supporters. 21:19:50--21:20:11 i was reasonably happy today until i you know discovered the dirty tricks that were going on and people spreading rumors that i had dropped out and that people should caucus for somebody else. i mean do you think that thats something thats acceptable? today congressman steve king, national co-chair for the cruz campaign, tweeted 'i respect ben carson & regret any miscommunications.' ted cruz himself issuing a statement saying that his campaign updated
c-n-n post saying carson wasn't going to new hampshire or south carolina...cruz adding that what his political team should have done was send around the follow-up statement from the carson campaign clarifying that he was indeed staying in the race. carson supporter jason wisneski was at clay elementary school in altoona last night and says he witnessed the falsehoods that were being spread. 16:47:39--16:47:55 i made the case for ben carson and then i sat down and then the cruz speaker went up and ended his speech with saying that ben carson was dropping out of the race and that they shouldnt waste their vote on him, they should vote for cruz instead.' fortunately, ben carson's wife saved the day at that caucus location... 16:47:57 it was like divine intervention candy carson just walked in the room immediately after he was done and said basically what i said because i had gotten up and said that that was a lie, and candy came in and corroborated
perpetuated by them. but wisneski says the problem is that not everyone at every caucus site got the memo and many were misinformed. today carson said the person on the cruz campaign who is responsible for that kind of blatant lying should be fired. last night's caucuses brought out record crowds... and it was also an historic night for women coming up... breaking barriers... how women were among the big winners on caucus night... then at 9-30... moving on... the iowa caucuses are over... and candidates are now hard at work in new hampshire... how last night's results could impact the outcome there... from who h-d iowa's high definition leader..you're watching the

"i know what we are capable of doing."the iowa caucus victory was more than just a slim edge over bernie sanders...

to get out there and say what you believe in."
