Making Headlines:

Record tie: Republican Sen. Ted Cruz won the Iowa caucuses while Democratic candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton remain deadlocked. After 2 a.m. Tuesday, with just one precinct left to report, the Iowa Democratic Party Chair Andy McGuire released a statement calling the caucus results "the closest in Iowa Democratic caucus history." 

Reward offered: The search continues for a Missouri couple wanted in connection with a wild crime spree in at least two other states. Police are now offering a $10,000 reward for information that could lead to their arrest.

Due in court: Bill Cosby's lawyers are expected to ask a judge today to throw out the criminal case lodged against him. The defense will argue that Cosby had a deal with a suburban Philadelphia prosecutor in 2005 that he wouldn't be prosecuted and should testify freely in a civil lawsuit.

Winter predictionPunxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, meaning spring could come early this year. 

Rock the vote: The Marion VA Medical Center is holding a voter registration event today to help veterans who have a difficult time getting to the polls. The event is from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
