Ben Carson: He says GOP rival Ted Cruz approached him during an off-camera break at Saturday's Republican debate to apologize for his campaign's conduct during the Iowa caucuses and request a one-on-one meeting. "He said he's sorry that this happened and he wants to sit down and talk," Carson says. On caucus day, Cruz's supporters spread false reports that Carson was dropping out. Cruz won Iowa.
Ted Cruz: He says it's dangerous and immoral to force women into combat roles in the military. Speaking in Peterborough, New Hampshire, he lashed out at his rivals who signaled support during Saturday's debate for including women if a draft is reinstated. Cruz says forcing women into "close combat" "is wrong, is immoral and, if I'm president, we ain't doing it." Cruz has two young daughters and said: "The idea that their government would forcibly put them in a foxhole with a 220-pound psychopath trying to kill them doesn't make any sense at all."
Hillary Clinton: She made a quick detour Sunday to Flint, Michigan, to express her outrage to residents over their poisoned water supply. "What happened in Flint is immoral," she said. Clinton describes the water crisis in Flint, where a majority of residents are African-American, as an example of the nation's struggle with economic and racial inequality.
Bernie Sanders: He made a cameo appearance on "Saturday Night Live," appearing in a skit with host Larry David, the comic who has done a dead-on impersonation of him. Sanders portrayed a passenger on an endangered ship who argued with David about who should be allowed on a lifeboat.
Jeb Bush: He trashed Donald Trump as "not a serious conservative" and bashed rival Republicans for not taking the fight to Trump. He said "I'm taking him on, brother" while appearing in Nashua, New Hampshire. The crowd roared with approval.
Donald Trump: He says if he had bought the Buffalo Bills pro football team, he wouldn't be running for president.
