2:30 am
administrators everywhere. we are going to break down the plan straight ahead. would you let this man coach your kid? rutger's head basketball coach, mike rice is in serious hot water after these images emerge. throwing basketballs at their head, their feet. why he hasn't been fired is ahead in sports. before we get to that, the top story at a:00 a.m. mark sanford one step closer to trying to reclaim his former congressional seat. he defeated curtis bostic. the biggest, most significant surprise of the evening, the person standing next to him on stage, his former mistress and now fiance was there with him along with his mother and their sons. he spoke of forgiveness on his road to redemption. >> i want to thank my god.
2:31 am
you know, i used to cringe when somebody said i want to thank my god. it was getting uncomfortable. once you really receive god's grace and seen it reflected in others, you cannot stop and stop for a moment and publicliage knowledge that grace and the difference he's made in my life and the difference he making in so many lives across this state and that nation and this campaign. god may be a god of second chances, voters are a little less forgiving. coming up on "morning joe," a live interview with mark sanford. with us right now, the chief white house correspondent from politico, mike allen. thanks for getting up early today. as we look ahead to the showdown with elisabeth colbert, it could be a close contest. >> mark sanford could lose this.
2:32 am
south carolina is such a republican state. he's in the tank with women. he's running against a woman complicates things. not a single member of the south carolina delegation in congress supported him. that's seven republicans. nobody had come out for him. he's casting himself as a candidate of redemption. figures in south carolina are not so sure. >> stick around. we have another story for you. not to get ahead of ourselves, the 2016 race. hillary clinton delivered her first speech since leaving the state department. she was honoring her former chief of staff at a leadership award. it's an organization she created as first lady in 1997. she laid out her map for women. >> maps can tell us as much about ourselves as about the
2:33 am
world around us. now you can look at a map of the world and see nothing but problems as far as the eye can perceive. that is especially true for those of us committed to the trug l for women and girls. it's not what we see. when we look at the map, we do see progress because we know people who are making that progress against the most extraordinary odds every day, everywhere. we see the opportunities that are there to be seized. we see, we hear those vital voices. >> it's worth noting that dozens of people held signs saying ready for hillary outside the kennedy center. it's where the event was held. a superpac supporting clinton is back as well. vice president biden, mike, a
2:34 am
potential candidate was on hand. clinton congratulated him for what he's done on his work for violence against women act. what are we left with on who takes the lead on the democratic side. biden or clinton in. >> what we saw with the footage you just showed is secretary clinton is to be a mobile political rally wherever she goes. people are excited. a standing ovation for her inside the kennedy center. we already saw vice president biden who is probably going to build up his own organization and possibly run in 2016 already being overshadowed. he embraced it. he said there's no woman like hillary clinton. that's something both sides can agree on. >> thanks. we are going see you shortly on "morning joe." >> happy early morning. north and south korea making headlines. they share more than a name after the last symbol of any
2:35 am
real relationship broke apart early this a.m. north korea is allowing workers to jointly run industrial park along the border. the blockade represents a level of brinkmanship from pyongyang. the north has repeatedly threatened south korea and the u.s. with war. something secretary of state john kerry addressed yesterday during a news conference in washington. take a look. >> the bottom line is very simply that what kim jong un is doing is provocative, reckless and the united states will not accept the dprk as a nuclear state and i reiterate, again, the united states will do what is necessary to defend ourselves and defend our allies, korea and japan. >> a sec american destroyer has
2:36 am
been deployed off the korean peninsu peninsula. the ships are poised to respond to missile threats. the controversy over the jon stewart of egypt spilled over twitter. it sparked an international feud on the social media sight. youssef is free on bail for a segment poking fun and morsi. the u.s. embassy tweeted this link that brings you to jon stewarts defense of youssef from earlier this week. >> for someone who spent time in jail yourself, you seem eager to send others there for the same non-crimes. they are emerging stronger and more emerged. sending them to prison is lowering the quality of prison yard athletics.
2:37 am
>> that tweet caught the attention of egyptian officials who responded tweeting it's appropriate for a dim lotmatic mission to engage in such political propaganda. egypt is taking its toll on a leader source of revenue. "the new york times" reports since the fall of hosni mubarak, tourism is down significantly impacting 3 million people working in 70 related industries. president obama travels to colorado for stronger gun control laws in america. they responded to last year's aurora shooting requiring background checks. it's a significant component to what the president is urging congress to adopt. with them expected to vote at some point next week. the nra is pushing for a different proposal including a plan to put armed security
2:38 am
personnel in every u.s. school. utah got a jump on the idea in december when hundreds of educators showed up for an armed teacher program. there's some of the pictures. state records for carrying concealed weapons are closed. it's hard to know how many teachers are armed in the classroom, something that's been legal there for 12 years. congressman of arkansas who is heading up the nra task force defended the proposals. >> it's a comprehensive plan of layers security, the presence of an armed security personnel in a school adds a layer of security and diminishes response time that is beneficial to the overall security. >> one of the nation's leading teacher unions slammed the report writing today's nra proposal will fail to keep our children safe. it's designed to assist gun
2:39 am
manufacturers. it will simply lead to more violence. that's the quote. later in the day, mr. hutchinson, who is planning to run for governor in arkansas made some concessions on universal background checks. >> i'm open to expanding background checks if you can do it in a way that does not infringe upon an individual and make it hard for an individual to transfer to a friend or a neighbor, somebody that if you are in montana and have a casual sale, we don't want to infringe upon those rights, either. >> the gun lobby responded saying he was not speaking for the nra. we are going to debut the first ever "morning joe" poll at the top of the hour. it will show compelling new numbers when it comes to the debate over guns here in america. clean up continues in arkansas where thousands of barrels of crude oil spilled from a pipeline into nearby
2:40 am
neighborhoods. we were the first to show this yesterday morning. arkansas's attorney general opened an investigation into the case. the department of transportation issued an order presenting the company from restarting the pegasus pipeline until they are satisfied with repairs. nearly two dozen families have been evacuated as they work to remove the oil from their properties. many never realized there was a pipeline near their homes. >> if we wanted to, we couldn't go back. if we wanted to stay in our home, we could nlt. i was there ten minutes max grabbing items. my head began to hurt from the fumes. i wouldn't dare take my children into that. >> exxon will pay for the clean up. the age of the pipeline does not determine the integrity. the company is up to code when it comes to checking it. exxon was fined three years ago for not inspecting another section of the pipeline
