that greg olson is the number one analyst, he'll be calling games and bucs games are on fox by and large, including the nfc championship game and the -- if the bucs get that far, so greg olson is calling games while keeping the seat warm for the guy who is going to be replacing him. interesting dynamic. >> intrigue. bob costas, always a pleasure to speak with you. thank you so much. >> thank you, john. >> cnn's coverage continues right now. good wednesday morning to you. i'm jim sciutto. >> i'm erica hill. this just in, new signs inflation may have peaked. prices still at near 40-year highs, but this morning the bureau of labor statistics says inflation actually fell to 8.3%. that's a decline of .2 points from last month. it is also the first decrease we have seen in nine months. big question, of course, is what does it mean for you? we're going to break those numbers down for you just in a
moment. >> part of a trend, a blip? we'll look into it. fresh primary results as we head toward crucial midterm elections. two candidates endorsed by president trump have split nights with a win and a loss. what is the outlook as we get closer to november, the main voting issues? we'll be on the ground in west virginia. a key vote on capitol hill, the senate is set to take up a bill that would guarantee abortion rights. that vote putting elected leaders on the record, at least, as the supreme court is poised to overturn roe v. wade. whether it can pass, make an actual difference, that's an open question. >> indeed it is. let's take a look at the new inflation numbers. what they really mean. here to help us do that, christine romans. so the bottom line is how should we feel about this right now? >> prices are still rising but not as quickly as they have been. that's important. we have been looking for the sign of a peak in inflation. look at the overall numbers, 8.3%, last month, a little bit
hotter than that. that's the inflation rate year over year. 0.3%, that's how much prices grew from march to april. again, that's significantly cooler month over month inflation growth than we had seen in the path. that's an important development. 8.5% was that 40 some year high when we saw it last month. line chart you can see exactly how dramatic this move has been in prices over the past almost year now. but there are signs there that it is peaking. when we look inside the inflation shot here, the sticker shock, gas prices up 44%, used car prices, look, anybody trying to buy a car now will tell you this is really high math at the dealerships, trying to buy an auto deal. food prices and shelter prices, these have still been rising and these are real problems, especially for lower income americans. they don't have a lot of choices when you're talking about higher food and higher shelter prices, that's something to continue to watch here.
i would say, jim, persistent troubling inflation, i think you're seeing signs of it cooling here. you asked is it a blip or a trend? i wish i had the answer to that. i hope it is the beginning of a trend, but we'll be watching this energy prices very carefully because you guys, last night, gas prices hit another record, $4.40 a gallen. >> big influences around the world too. the war in ukraine, that effect on food and energy prices and lockdowns in china, the fear is that exacerbates supply chain issues. >> that's a really big deal. and there are growing worries if those china lockdowns last a long time or spread to other big cities, you're talking about maybe years long problems for supply chains, which means years long problems for inflation feeding into inflation. that's a really good point to make there. you got a war in ukraine, that's going to be a food and fuel price. you got an economy coming out of the pandemic and what is happening in china with covid, all of those are important variables. >> you lock people in their apartments, they don't buy a lot
of the stuff we build over here. west virginia congressman alex mooney who made trump's endorsement the centerpiece of his campaign there will win the gop nomination in that state's second newly created congressional district. >> in nebraska, cnn projects jim pillen will beat charles herbster in the gubernatorial primary. kristen holmes joining us now from charles town, west virginia. so a split night for those trump-backed candidates. what is the larger picture here? is it really all about the former president or are things more important to other folks? >> reporter: good morning, erica and jim. it is interesting. what this shows us is that trump still has an enormous grip on the republican party, but it is not absolute. particularly when you have a candidate like charles herbster who is deeply flawed. multiple accusations of sexual misconduct, all of which he
denied, and even with trump support couldn't pull it through. the thing to note here which makes both of these races very interesting is they're essentially similar in the fact that they were a proxy war, but they had very different outcomes. here in west virginia, we had congressman alex mooney, backed by president trump. on the other side, you had david mckinley, backed by the entire establishment essentially of west virginia politics. democrat senator joe manchin as well as the republican governor all backing mckinley. and yet mooney prevailed. i'll tell you that we really started to believe yesterday on the ground that that would be the result because trump's popularity here in the state is so palpable. and one thing i do want to note, this was a little bit of excitement during the victory speech, he took it a step further, indicating he may take on joe manchin for senate in 2024, little bit of drama there. but, anyway, moving on to the nebraska race, again, another proxy war here that yielded a different result. on one side you had the incumbent governor pete ricketts who is no longer going to be
able to be governor, his term is up, who endorsed jim pillen who ended up winning. on the other side, you had charles herbster endorsed by donald trump and ricketts asked trump not to weigh in on this race. of course, trump ultimately denying that request when he backed herbster. so, two different results. one establishment candidate winning, one establishment candidate losing, but the caveat there again being that herbster was a flawed candidate. and the thing we need to point out here is this is just the beginning of a large midterm cycle in which trump is going to be tested time and time again. we have big primaries coming up here in georgia, in north carolina, in pennsylvania, just next week, where his lead candidate is actually in a three-way tie. this is just the beginning of what could be a potential series of losses as the republicans try to define their party. >> kristen holmes with the latest for us this morning, thank you. joining us now for more cnn national politics reporter eva mckend and white house
correspondent for the new york times. good to have both of you with us this morning. a lot of this is about how republicans define their party moving forward. there is so much i think in a lot of circles there is exhaustion, right, this obsession with just how much power the former president has at this point. are the issues getting lost while that's being worked out? >> that frustration is warranted. the issues very much do get lost, and now reproductive rights is on the ballot. that going to be an issue that is highlighted in many of these races. but trump's endorsement is tremendously powerful. we saw that play out in west virginia. i think we're going to see more republican candidates in these primaries continue to court trump as a result. it is not absolute as kristen said. it is still a factor. that's why it continues to dominate political conversations. what i'm really looking towards, though, is as these trumpian
candidates become successful in their primaries, who are democrats going to put up against them? there is this tendency in the democratic party to put up noncontroversial moderate candidates that are not inspiring, but are safe bets and i'm wondering in order to compete against these trumpian candidates, who democrats if democrats are going to shift their strategy, maybe put up some more fire brands, more progressives, that perhaps can compete. >> zolan, are the trump endorsed candidates the stronger ones in the generals? we know that someone like senate majority leader mitch mcconnell has been skiddish to say the least about some of those candidates in terms of his chances of retaking the senate. we don't know for sure, but there are concerns within the republican party. >> it is still a little bit early to say if that's going to be the trend going forward as we go through the rest of this election season.
but this was an early test. it wasn't just a test in west virginia, nebraska. these are not isolated races. it was also a test of trump's influence, but also what would be prioritized. tapping into the ideology reflected by the former president, or pragmatism. and at times delivering for your constituents? that resonated in west virginia where you had one candidate who stood by a bipartisan infrastructure package. west virginia has a history as well of supporting representatives that go to washington, and bring back federal resources back to their state. and here you saw that supporting that president biden's infrastructure package became a polarizing issue and not as prioritized as an endorsement from the former president, where as in nebraska, even though you saw more establishment republican win, it should be noted when we're talking about the former president's influence
and the power of his endorsement that even pillen at one point started to tap into and started to talk about critical race theory, and whether or not there should be bans on the transgender community when it comes to -- so even though that race, you saw the establishment republican won, you still saw him execute some of methods we have seen from trump-backed candidates. it will be interesting to see where we go going forward. >> which really is the important you're making earlier too, will we see more fire brand candidates to counter that coming through on the left? interesting too when you look at west virginia, where bipartisanship, right, which there was a time when that was a good thing, this was painted as one of the worst things you could be as a candidate is bipartisan. >> that's right. historically supporting an infrastructure package would be a good thing because you could be at that -- those ribbon cuttings, you could go to people in your community, especially when you're talking about house
races, when it is truly a local race, and point to specific deliverables. but now if you are a member of congress, you are thinking, well, maybe it pays to be more tribal. and historically you were thinking about what can i actually do for my community? it does sort of indicate that there is some toxicity in our politics. >> yeah. for sure. we should also note that -- what works in the primary doesn't necessarily work in the general. it is a tiny sliver of the voting and it is skewed to one party or the other. eva mckend, zolan kanno-youngs, thank you. an additional $40 billion aid for ukraine, this is a huge jump compared to previous packages. what difference and how quickly will that new aid, the new weapons make on the ground? he i'll speak to the mayor of mykolaiv in the south, hear what is happening on the battlefield. plus, recaptured inmate casey white now back in jail, returned to alabama for an

new this morning, the ukrainian president is thanking the u.s. house of representatives for passing a nearly $40 billion bill for more weapons and humanitarian aid to ukraine, big jump over previous aid bills, and just the existing funds were about to run out. >> we're also getting a sense too of how quickly some of that aid is being deployed and actually being used. ukraine's deputy defense minister says weapons the u.s. and other allies supplied at this point are already deployed to the front line. cnn international correspondent scott mclean joining us from lviv this morning. so officials say that supply has settled into a routine. what do we know about that? >> reporter: you heard president zelenskyy there thanking the congress for passing this, or thanking the house at least for passing this military aid, humanitarian assistance bill. he also said this morning that, well, his mood for negotiation
for peace is sort of waning, giving bucha, giving mariupol, given some of the atrocities they have seen across ukraine. and perhaps given some success in kharkiv region especially in taking back territory. the ukrainians are in a bit of a fighting mood, especially given the foreign hardware that is flowing into the country. you mentioned the deputy defense secretary saying that, well, a lot of foreign equipment is already at the front lines and they sort of established a rhythm in delivery and how it is getting there and getting into the country. the u.s. for instance pledged 90 howitzers, a modern day cannon, and the pentagon says that 89 of those have already been delivered. now, russia has 4.5 times the number of troops at its disposal, not even close, but the ukrainians say they have gotten so much foreign assistance which president zelenskyy has been advocating for since the outset of the war and even before, they say they have gotten so much new hardware that it is getting to the point
where the russians don't actually have a hardware advantage, they don't have an equipment advantage on the ground. the russians have made clear that any foreign equipment coming into the country is fair game for air strikes, and in recent weeks we have seen the russians try to target some of the infrastructure that is likely being used to transit those weapons across the country. it seems that may be slowing things down, but certainly not preventing it. jim, erica? >> ukraine also suspended the flow of russian natural gas, one of the ironies of this war, russian gas is still crossing ukrainian territory to customers in europe throughout the war. but they stopped some of that now. how much and why? >> reporter: it is actually amazing to think that given this conflict that any russian gas has been able to transit through ukrainian territory. but it has up until now. it was this morning that some of those taps were shut off, affecting about 1-tone-third ofe gas that transits from russia en route to europe. the reason the
operator gives for doing this, the reason they give is because of russian interference, especially in the occupied parts. they say the russians are siphoning gas off of the line, which is threatening the safety and stability of the line. the russians have responded saying that the ukrainians don't actually have a good reason to break this contract, and stop the flow of gas. it is not really clear what kind of long-term impact this will have on markets in europe. the germans, for instance, have already said that they're good because most of their gas comes directly from russia and doesn't actually transit through ukraine. >> scott mclean, in lviv, thanks so much. joining me now is the mayor of mykolaiv, ukraine. mykolaiv one of the hardest hit cities in the southern part of the country. thank you for joining us this morning. you and your city has gone through a whole heck of a lot in the last few weeks. mykolaiv would be a key step towards russia's hope of taking
really all of the south. how are ukrainian forces holding up right now? >> so the battlefield is on the territory of mykolaiv region, it is about 20 miles from our city. almost every day we have bombardments from kherson region. it is about 50, 60 miles from us. they launch rockets and they are over our city. let's say the line of attack, the space for two weeks on the same place, so neither our troops, nor russian don't move forward. we expect for more weapons to move forward because both parts are in defense now. >> let me ask you this, because as you were saying during the break, the weapons have been focused on the east, in recent
weeks. the howitzers, the additional military aid. they're not coming to you, new weapons. what new weapons do you need to push back, perhaps launch a counteroffensive against russian forces nearby your city? >> let's say the biggest fight is on the east new. all the troops of russia, again, were there. they also gather troops in crimea region and move them to kherson region closer to us. but they don't use a big group of troops against us. so the biggest part of -- the weapon that comes to ukraine goes to these. and we expect to have also part of it here in mykolaiv, to go forward to kherson, that is already two months. >> you mentioned kherson, kherson has been taken over by
russian forces and now they're taking over political control of these cities and claiming as they have following other invasions that the people there want russian rule. they welcome russian occupation. you're getting a sense of what they would do to mykolaiv if they were it take over mykolaiv. what is your reaction when you hear the russian government says this is what the ukrainians and kherson want? >> this is complete lie because we know that -- i know personally mayor of kherson who is still in occupation. he worked for a number of months, but then occupants moved him out of the office and assign another person. so people in kherson don't want to be a part of russia. the situation in the beginning of the war was such critical that all the troops left the area of kherson, so i'm sure that no one wants to go to
russia there. people want to be part of ukraine, but for sure russian tv and russian -- will say they want to go to russia. no one wants to go to russia. >> you hear from ukrainian president and others that they're not interested really right now on diplomatic negotiations with russia, particularly after atrocities witnessed in a place such as bucha. but we have seen repeated elsewhere. do you believe that there should be diplomatic talks under way with russia to find at least a path to a cease-fire? >> our president now in difficult position because russia occupied much of the ukrainian territory. and our negotiation could be go around russian troops to go back to russian territory. i'm sure that russian part of
the war do this, so this negotiation won't have any good result. >> mayor, we wish you, we wish the people of your city safety. >> thank you. just in to cnn, new 911 audio of former corrections officer vicky white in the moments just before the crash that ended a nationwide manhunt. her death as well. the inmate she busted out of jail is now back behind bars this morning. we have the latest details for you next. ot... work bye. vacation hi! book with priceline.

it today, the senate will vote on a bill that would codify into federal law a woman's right to seek an abortion. this comes in the wake of the leaked supreme court draft opinion. melanie zanona joining us live from capitol hill. we know, melanie, this measure needs 60 votes to pass the senate. currently split 50/50. it is not likely to pass. but chuck schumer, majority leader, says he absolutely wants to follow through here. what is that strategy? >> reporter: it is all about offense. democrats are under immense pressure to show they're fighting against this potential ruling overturning roe v. wade, and they also want to put every single republican on the record, especially since so many of them
don't really want to talk about this issue. here's senate judiciary chairman dick durbin describing the strategy. >> i don't believe we will have 60 today. but every member of the senate will go on record, do you want to overturn roe v. wade, that's what this is all about. if you want to vote that way, be my guest. but to put us in a situation where we're taking away a basic freedom, that has been guaranteed by the constitution and the court for 50 years is significant, historic, and senators should be on the record. >> reporter: so this is essentially a symbolic vote here, it does not have the 60 votes required to get over this initial procedural step. all republicans are opposed to it including susan collins and lisa murkowski who do support abortion rights but believe this bill is too broad and it might not have the support of all democrats. joe manchin voted against a similar bill earlier this year, he has not said how he'll vote yet. in a sign of the shifting landscape, there is one
anti-abortion democrat bob casey who said he would vote for this procedural step and this bill today. there are some serious potential risks here to the strategy. not only could it expose democratic divisions, but it also could really highlight how powerless democrats really are in a 50/50 senate. that is why you've seen multiple democrats renew their calls. joe manchin and kyrsten sinema still opposed to that. this is not the end of this debate. this is only the beginning of the fight for democrats here on capitol hill. erica? >> melanie zanona, thank you. ahead in the next hour, as melanie said, it is just the beginning for democrats. we'll ask what that fight will look like. i'll be joined by senator elizabeth warren in our next hour, with that bill that doesn't appear to be poised to pass. how does she plan to fight back to protect roe and much more. join us for that interview. >> lots of symbolic votes on the hill these days. murder suspect casey white is back in alabama this morning,
two days after the escaped inmate was captured following a nationwide manhunt. the pictures there. it ended with the corrections officer who helped break him out of jail last month, vicky white, dead from what officials say was a self-inflicted gunshot wound. here is the sheriff of la lauderdale county where the two escaped from on how casey white acted on his return. >> he didn't show any remorse for anything he's done. this was supposed to be his girlfriend and she's dead. and, you know, he hasn't shown any remorse i've seen even since that happened. he used her. which they always do. he just was pitiful. like i said, he looked like a whipped puppy and, you know, he needs to, you know, have his tail tucked between his legs. he ought to be ashamed. people like this, they don't have shame. >> people like this don't have shame. omar jimenez joins us now. i understand you just obtained
the 911 call made by vicky white from inside that vehicle, just before her death. what do we hear? >> reporter: yeah, jim. we're hearing what may have been vicky white's final words. we knew she was on the phone with 911 before law enforcement got to her, and before she shot herself as police say, but take a listen to some of what she said in the moments that appear to be just after the car crashed. >> air bags have gone off. >> it was shortly after that, the police say she shot herself. now, newly released body camera footage from the evansville police department here basically picks up from there, and shows law enforcement trying to get her out of that mangled vehicle. and one of the officers even
notes as they approach that she is stil still has got the gun in her hand. and after five minutes of trying to get her out, her body is completely limp at that point, as we know now she was later declared dead. now, law enforcement also found multiple weapons in this vehicle, nine millimeter, a rifle and as we know casey white told investigators he was planning to get into a shootout with law enforcement if they had not rammed his vehicle. they found $29,000 in cash, the sheriff believes came from vicky white's recent sale of her home. but, of course, casey white is back in alabama, marking the end of what was a more than 10-day saga on the run. >> vicky white, that officer is dead. omar jimenez, thank you so much. a judge found that celebrity chef mario batali is not guilty of criminal indecent assault and battery. he was accused of groping a woman who asked for a selfie at a restaurant in 2017.

elon musk says if that deal closes, former president donald trump can return. >> i do think that it was not correct to ban donald trump. i think that was a mistake. because it alienated a lot of the country, and did not ultimately result in donald trump not having a voice. >> musk called twitter's decision to ban the former president a morally bad decision. it is not clear if trump would choose to tweet again. sources telling cnn he's still committed it to his new social networking site truth social. in a piece for the post you wrote musk what he means by free speech is a platform that is more tolerant of misinformation, personal harassment, bullying and hate speech. i think that a lot of people watching this playing out here, the real question is who at twitter is going to decide what
constitutes free speech moving forward? is it elon musk? is he the sole decisionmaker on that? how would it work? >> well, elon musk can't be the sole decisionmaker for every content moderation decision that twitter makes. thi this is a platform with 230,000 users every day. 80% of those are outside the u.s. it is one thing for musk to make a call on someone like donald trump. another to do the work every day of making tens of thousands of calls on tweets that have been reported by users around the world in all different languages. >> to that point, he also tweeted on monday that he wants to abide by the laws of the countries where twitter operates, which brings in some interesting questions about, you know, he says if something becomes problematic in certain countries, they should deal with that there. if we're not talking about a democracy, if laws can't be passed if we're talking about how things are regulated in china or russia, this is a whole
can of worms. >> yeah. there is a lot that elon musk hasn't said or hasn't explained. he is clearly a smart man, he's built two of the most successful businesses of our time in spacex and tesla. and social media, he's coming into a realm that is very different. this is about human systems, that is not necessarily been the strength that he's displayed over his career. and his statement so fares have revealed what seems to be revealed a simplistic understanding of how social media works and what content moderation is about. he said he would allow speech that complies with the law, he has not said in democrat cies o in authoritarian countries. musk has not said what he would do in those cases, it is not clear he has thought it through. >> there is debate over what will happen if -- once this deal
closes, he says donald trump is allowed back on. there is a lot of debate over trump, twitter 2.0, that that looks like. what do you think? is the obsession with the former president, if he decides to tweet again, is that obsession going to be at the same exhausting pace or is there a chance that people are maybe a little bit over it? >> well, i think it depends on his political fortunes obviously. when he's the president, you can't ignore what he says. if you look at how the media has been treating everything that elon musk tweeted since his takeover bid began, that's a good clue, they'll be jumping over everything that trump says. i think twitter is trump's ideal platform. his people are saying he won't come back to twitter, but this is a man who loves attention and twitter is where he gets the most attention for what he says. he has the most followers and fans, about 88 million follow twit
ers on twitter, only 2 million on truth social, his network. it is likely trump will come back to twitter if musk is able to complete this transaction, take over the social network and reinstate him. >> thank you. >> thanks. tension and tragedy in the west bank. an al jazeera journalist shot and killed covering the conflict there. we're going to be live in jerusalem, there she is, with the latest next. everybody be cool, alright? we've got t bonnie right here on a video call. we don't take kindly to video calls. oh, in that case just tap to send a message. we don't take kindly to messages neither. in that case how 'bout a ringcentral phone call. we don't takake kindly to no.. would you can it eugene! let's just hear her out. ha ha ha, i've been needing a new horse. we've got ourselves a deal. ♪ ♪ ♪ ringcentral ♪ this is not the stallion i was imagining. power e*trade gives you an award-winning mobile app with powerful, easy-to-use tools, and interactive charts to give you an edge. 24 support when you need it the most.

a palestinian american working for al jazejazeera. >> palestinian officials are calling this an execution. what do we know about the facts behind this? >> it's a terrible tragedy today. so well known as a veteran correspondent across the arab world and for us for the journalist community here. it's just so terrible what happened this morning. from what we understand, she was shot while covering an israeli military operation in the west bank town. a second journalist, her producer, was also shot but he's in stable condition. in video we see after the scene, warning, it's disturbing but you can clearly see charean is wearing body armor that says press as well as a helmet. the identifying factors to show that journalists are working out in the field. al jazeera is placing the blame
fully on the israeli security forces in the area calling on the international community to hold israel accountable for what they say deliberately targeting and killing our colleague charean. i want to play what her producer, also injured, said about the incident earlier today. take a listen. >> translator: we were going in to film the army operation but then shot us. didn't tell us to leave or stop. they shot us. first bullet hit me. the second bullet hit charean. they killed her with cold blood because they were killers specializing in the killing of palestinians. they claimed palestinians killed her. the resistance was there. we wouldn't go to that area. >> for context, that was an area they had been operating quite frequently in the last several weeks in response to a series of attacks targeting israelis that killed at least 18 people and several of the attackers came
from the area. the idf said earlier today, the forces were conducting counterterrorism operations. when they came under fire and they say they returned fire several times. the chief of staff of the israeli military just put out a statement saying that at this stage, it is not possible to determine from which shot she was hit and that they regret her death. they set up a special team to clarify the facts. the prime minister naftali bennett put out his own statement today and it appears armed palestinians indiscriminately firing at the time, were responsible and called on the palestinians to conduct a joint pathological analysis and investigation, and so far, they have refused this offer but an unnecessary death of a journalist just doing her job. >> thank you for the updates. up next here, how did a passenger with zero flight

here. my pilot has gone incoherent, and i have no idea how to fly the airplane but i'm maintaining at 9100. >> delta, roger, what's your position? >> i have no idea. >> what's the situation with the pilot? >> he is incoherent. he is out. >> keep it level and see if you can start descending for me. push forward on the controls and descend at a very slow rate. >> i am in awe every time i hear that audio. the calm tone of that gentleman's voice, the passenger, able to safely land that plane to help from air traffic control. cnn aviation correspondent pete muntean joining us live to discuss. with the help of that air traffic controller, who, like you, is also a flight instructor, i mean, talk about luck on that day.
>> so lucky. you hope this never happens as a pilot. it's not really something we train for. it's almost like it is out of a movie. let's back up on the details here. this flight was coming from the bahamas over the atlantic ocean when all of this happened. the pilot started to complain about a headache, and then became incapacitated and that's when one of the passengers turned into a pilot. radioed air traffic control, tried to figure out where they are. that was the first big challenge that air traffic control had was just figuring out where the plane was and trying to get it closer to land. in the tower at ft. pierce, florida, they called the best guy for the job. hero controller robert morgan. also a flight instructor, 1200 hours of flight experience. got him up in the tower to try to talk this plane down. he hadn't flown in this before, pulled up an image on his phone of the instrument panel of the
s cessna caravan. palm beach international. pbi. shallow descent, shallow turns. listen now to robert morgan who said this is all part of a lot of teamwork that took place to get this to happen so successfully. listen to him. >> i felt like i was going to, i had so much adrenaline built up but i was really happy it worked out, nobody got hurt. he was a calm person, i'm a calm person, we're kind of able to work together as a team. i had a lot of my coworkers and facilities also participating to keep everybody calm and get him to a big runway. a big target he could land. i knew that if we could get him close enough to the runway, have the power back on the plane, he'd be successful one way or another, they'd be okay.
