when he faced down the chinese government. >> reporter: ted cruz ended with what seemed like a dig at donald trump. >> what an incredible nation we have that the son of a bartender and the son of a mailman and dishwasher and a successful businessman can all stand on this stage competing and asking for your support. >> reporter: afterwards donald trump called the debate elegant. a reflection perhaps on the fact that it didn't appear to do anything to change his position as the overwhelming front-runner for the republican nomination. george. >> okay, jon, thanks. let's take it to senator marco beach. thanks for joining us. you're getting a lot of good reviews last night but did you do anything to slow donald trump down? >> well, i don't know if it's about tear donald trump down. i think it's like any debate an opportunity to convince people that i'm the right choice to be president. there are still significant number of undecideds across the
7:05 am
north carolina and the other, missouri and other states in play but also in florida so i think it's an opportunity to do that and an opportunity to get people supporting other candidates to give you a second look and also an opportunity to supporters. about. that's what it was about. felt good about the night we have, see if it pays dividends. >> anything you wish you would have said? >> well, look, i give credit to the moderators. it was a policy debate. it was very policy oriented and a lot of topics we could have talked about that we didn't get to, two-hour debate. i give them credit. substantive debate and aim good it was. i wish i would have given out my website >> according to most of the polls i've seen over the last double digits in florida. advertising.
7:06 am
in the final four days? >> well, we're not down by double digits. i've always acknowledged that it was going to be a tough fight here in florida. but we're making real progress. i love all the trends that are happening and i think a couple of things are happening. number one is there is a significant number of voters that are now making up their minds and i think they'll head our way, i hope so anyway and feel strongly they will and a lot of kasich and cruz supporters that realize neither of them have any chance to win and florida and if they don't want donald trump to be our nominee voting for them in trump. >> even if you win florida on tuesday night, get every single one of the delegates by our calculations you'll need to win 78% of the remaining delegates to get that. that can't be done. your best hope is a contested convention. how do you answer donald trump's argument whoever has the most delegates going to that veng should be the nominee. >> the majority, almost two-thirds of republicans do not nominee.
7:07 am
front-runner and nominee who has a significant percentage of the party rejects you won't win a general election. i think i'm the only candidate left in the race who can unite the republican party and also grow it and so i think that is the reason why ultimately we're going to be the nominee. it's not going to be a traditional way. will take a long time most people anticipated to get there. but it's important and i feel really good about it, especially after tuesday when we win florida what it is going to mean for our campaign. >> senator rubio, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thanks, george. five big states on the ballot tuesday. >> a lot at stake. one of the questions talked about last night in the debate, the physical violence seen at some of donald trump's rallies. well, now one reporter is saying she was assaulted by trump's campaign manager. abc's tom llamas has that story in palm beach for us. good morning, tom. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. in just a couple of hours donald trump will receive dr. ben carson's endorsement here at his mar-a-lago resort this as the

7:09 am
trump supporter. >> hey, hey, hey. >> reporter: the trump campaign saying they discourage this kind of behavior and ensure the safety of any and all attendees but it follows weeks of trump suggesting to his supporters they get violent. >> we're not allowed to punch back anymore so if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of him, would you? seriously. i'd like to pump him in the face, i'll tell you. >> reporter: and now trump also dealing with accusations his campaign manager, corey lewandowski assaulted michelefields a conservative reporter with breitbart. >> you don't grab a female reporter the way he grabbed me. >> reporter: fields showing us the bruise where trump's campaign manager grabbed her. if you had a chance to talk to donald trump right now, what would you say to him? >> i would just ask him to just put himself in my shoes and imagine if i was his daughter.
7:10 am
out denying it happened but this is an audio recording of the incident. >> [ bleep ]. >> yeah, he just threw you down. >> i can't believe he just did that. that was so hard. >> reporter: i asked trump about it after the debate. your campaign manager has been accused of assault. your campaign has flatly denied it. what do you say to that? >> i wasn't there. i don't know anything about it. i can say this, i was walking and we have tremendous secret service around and he was within that whole grid and the secret service people said nothing happened. >> reporter: now, ben terrace who you heard in that is a reporter for "the washington post." he says he saw the whole thing go down and says michele fields is telling the truth. george. >> okay, tom, thanks. to matthew dowd in austin, texas, you saw in the debate last night that donald trump's opponents did not lay this at his feet. but is this any kind of a danger, these incidents of violence to donald trump's campaign? >> well, it seems like a danger to a lot of people at the rallies.
7:11 am
going to be a political danger in the course of this. i think donald trump said last night, listen, i discourage this. there is some accountability he and his campaign have for creating an environment around these things happen. i think going forward they have to do everything possible to stop this kind of thing from happening. sometimes it does, george, as you know, these things happen but politically it's not going to hurt donald trump right now going into tuesday. >> he praised that debate as an elegant debate, remarkably civil. his opponents mostly pulled their punches last night and i guess they're responding to the criticism of last week's debate. was it an overcorrection? >> i was fascinated. we went from some combination of "game of thrones" and a comedy central roast to "downton abbey" this week in the course of seven days we saw that i think what you'll see out of this, donald trump in the category of the bar isn't very high, this was donald trump's best debate in the course of this.
7:12 am
he stayed disciplined, calm in the course of this even when this way. i think it's good for donald trump going into tuesday and this, george, we don't know if there will be another debate after this. this may be the last debate. >> good you got all of amy's favorite shows in one answer. >> so true. >> way to go, matthew dowd, thanks very much. all right. we move now to some deadly flooding down south. six states under flood watches this morning. both louisiana and mississippi. in states of emergency as more water is on the way. abc's steve osunsami is in greenville, mississippi, with the very latest. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, to you, amy. the forecast calls for as much as another inch of rain and if you take a look all around me you'll notice that that is an inch that families don't need. this is one of several neighbors underwater here and adding insult to injury are the storm drains which are clogged so all

played for the first time. >> let us take a look at a clip from an october 15, 2012 abc action news broadcast. >> reporter: this as gawker tried to body slam one of team hogan's expert witnesses. >> you were a reporter for only three years. >> right. >> not been a reporter since 1973, correct? >> approximately correct. >> reporter: mike foley a journalist professor saying gawker's featuring the sex tape featuring terry bollea, aka hogan wasn't justified and wasn't journalism. the defense hammering his credibility suggesting the professor's views on what is newsworthy is from a bygone era. >> there was no facebook, right? >> that's correct. >> okay, there was no youtube, right? >> that is correct. >> reporter: at points the professor even inadvertently

7:34 am
let's talk about that journalism expert after cross-examination did he have any impact? >> no, it was not effective for hulk hogan's team. not only was he sort of outdated and not only did he get blasted on cross-examination. not only did they use his own words against him but keep in mind that hogan's team had previously had a really good day, right? they're coming off of a day where they have the founder of gawker and editor in cheever of gawker seeming callous about the impact of the things they do talking about the fact that they certainly would run stories about pictures of celebrities naked, et cetera. that in and of itself tells the jury what they need to know. you don't need a professor saying and that's not good ethics. you know, it speaks for itself and i think they detracted from some of the progress that they had made. >> perhaps some progress that they made, though, calling in that former senior executive at gawker to talk about whether or
7:35 am
the sex tape. >> this is a critical issue, right? what gawker's position is there were no ads on this so we effectively didn't make any money and this guy is saying, they were celebrating the fact this tape did so many views, they gave out bonuses and it's not just the number, it's the celebratory nature. >> and skwors saw a portion of it. >> that's right for the first time. very small snippet. >> dan abrams, more to come, thank you. we move on to a terrifying home invasion for mississippi when an escaped prisoner held a family hostage in their home and turned the tables when the wife sneaked away and grabbed a gun. linsey davis has the story. >> reporter: good morning. it all started march 2nd when rafael mccloud escaped from jail after overpowering a guard with a makeshift knife. they warned residents they believed he was still in the area. no leads and now believed he may have lived in the woods for days before resurfacing yesterday.
