Candidates reflect hours ahead of Iowa caucuses


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she has no regrets having endorsed billionaire Donald Trump for president over his rival Ted Cruz, who she endorsed during his run for a seat in the U.S. Senate.

Speaking to NBC's Today on the morning of the Iowa caucuses Monday, Palin said her support "added some momentum" to Cruz's campaign and as the senator from Texas, he has gone on to fight for the American people.

"I want to keep him in the Senate and I want Donald Trump to be our president," she said.

Palin also defended comments she made at one of Trump's rallies when she blamed her son's behavior on President Barack Obama for not doing more to help veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Palin insisted that America needs a new president who she says will not "kowtow, allow the enemy to be poking at us."
