7:00 am
i joined the district attorney's office to pursue justice for everyone. but like so many of my colleagues, i resigned in protest because chesa boudin interfered in every single case and failed to do his job. the office is absolutely in disarray right now. chesa dissolved my unit prosecuting car break-ins. now criminals flock to san francisco because there are no consequences. we can't wait. recall chesa boudin now. to you. i'm jim sciutto. >> i'm erica hill. the biggest primary night of the year thus far, we have pretty significant insights into what
7:01 am
is shaping up for this year's midterms. this morning, we are keeping a close eye on pennsylvania's state gop primary where trump endorsed celebrity doctor mehmet oz still in a neck and neck battle as you see there with retired hedge fund executive david mccormick. >> we are making a ferocious charge but when it's this close, what would you expect? everything about this campaign is pin tight. >> we knew our message was resonating with the voters of pennsylvania and they showed it today and we are so incredibly grateful. >> senator minority leader mitch mcconnell pretending to wipe sweat off his brow when asked about his reaction to pennsylvania saying the gop is, quote, ready to win in november. >> he had serious reservations about barnett. madison cawthorn on his way out. the trump favorite conceded late last night. cnn's national correspondent athena jones and dianne
7:02 am
gallagher this morning begin in lancaster, pennsylvania. here we are. pennsylvania. tight race. mail-in ballots could determine within the republican party, the senate gop primary there. what do we know happens next and over what period of time will we know the winner? >> reporter: hi, jim. we know that there are outstanding ballots and counties all across the state, but one of the key issues is right here in lancaster county where there were about 22,000 misprinted ballots with the wrong code on the side, so they couldn't be read by the scanning machines. this was a problem that was discovered tuesday morning, yesterday morning at 7:00 a.m. because under state law, that's when they could begin opening these ballots so they begin correcting this issue yesterday. yesterday, they were able to rescan or remark and rescan about 7,000 votes. so still about 15,000 to go. they're just getting under way here at the voting behind me. i just spoke with the election
7:03 am
sheep here and the board of commissioners who say it could take until friday to clear the rest of the ballots, could be shorter. this problem somewhat happened a year ago, longer days and a longer ballot. these are remarked in teams of three. someone reads it, marks it, observing. and of course both parties and the campaigns who want to can have on bservers in the room. it's important to be transparent, that's why we're allowed in and able to get back inside. listen to what cristin miller, the lancaster county election chief had to say about this whole process. >> every ballot that we have received will be counted. there will not be a ballot out there that is not counted that is supposed to be. it will take us a few extra days and we may have to remark it but we'll take care of it. everybody's ballot we got will count. >> reporter: and just so we're clear, they're doing it precinct by precinct so there's no way to say how many are democratic or republican ballots.
7:04 am
we have to wait and see. jim and erica? >> increasingly difficult in times when we expect immediate gratification. there you are in north carolina outside the headquarters of edwards able to oust congressman madison cawthorn, conceding to him overnight. what more are you hearing from voters about why they chose edwards over madison cawthorn? >> reporter: you know, erica, a lot of people said this is essentially a mistake of cawthorn's own making, that he was his own undoing in this race, and it's not just the multiple scandals, the run-ins with law enforcement insulting members of his own party that turned them against him but also the fact that when the new maps were redrawn in north carolina, he left this district for another one and then when they were thrown out by the court, he came back. it was that point that state senator chuck edwards jumped in to what he thought at the time was an open race. and since that point, madison cawthorn, even though there were eight people in this race, it
7:05 am
was almost a two person race between he and chuck edwards. on name, id but both of them campaigning on similar political platforms. essentially saying i am just as conservative, just not as embarrassing. he said he supports trump but madison was the one to get out the trump platform the night before the election but that didn't seem to help him the same way candidates like bo heinz in the 13th or u.s. senator ted bud. called edwards to concede in the late 10:00 hour last night. but also, stuck up for president trump when he spoke to supporters. >> he presented himself in very classy and humble way and offered his support to our campaign in absolutely any way we could use him. >> you know what? the thing i love about president trump is when you get your back pushed up against the wall, most
7:06 am
people in politics, if it's not politically expedient, they'll turn your back in a heartbeat but no matter what you're facing, when donald trump has your back, he has your back to the end. >> reporter: cawthorn did not get one of the emails trump was sending around endorsing many of the candidates in the state of north carolina and across the country, but he was endorsed back in march of 2021 by the former president. at play here is all the money that people put into this, including a super pac tied over the past few months here. >> dianne gallagher, athena jones, thank you so much. joining us now to discuss what to take away from all of this and political commentator errol lewis and news1 and cnn political director david chalian. look at that race. madison cawthorn. 1300 votes to determine the outcome. 60,000 voters. voters from one party, small
7:07 am
percentage. we like to make national conclusions but politics has a million factors and there's a tendency to say this is all about trump's endorsement, scandal, et cetera. help people at home right now look at this slate of races and see what the big takeaways are for you. >> i think the big takeaway in the results last night is that in the republican primaries, jim, you didn't see a republican candidate out there running who was in contention either winning their race or tied or coming into close second as sort after mitt romney republican. that didn't exist. so you could spend time on whether trump has backed a candidate or not and no doubt trump will spend time on that and use his own scorecard as a calling card to republican elected officials and grassroots alike but the larger thing looking across the landscape is just how alive trumpism is in the republican party that this is a party very much in the former president's.
7:08 am
>> picking up on what diane was saying about the money poured in north carolina, is the money that was poured in from outside right and in the races, i talked about yesterday with some folks there is this increasing, right, we want to draw national headlines which is hard to do from a primary and yet, it is this sort of national flow of money that's going in to a lot of these races, errol. and i wonder as we look at that, are some of the issues being lost here and what's the real impact? >> yeah, sure. a lot of the issues are lost. madison cawthorn, one way to look at it from a distance from the outside is that this is somebody who was beaten by a successful businessman who was more than twice his age, right? madison cawthorn made a lot of rookie mistakes. he was acting like a very young man, being very young and foolish in a lot of ways and to a certain extent, the story doesn't go much further than that, but outside money is there because they know that we're going to be talking about it. and they want to try to create some sense that there's momentum
7:09 am
gathering in one direction or another. the problem with that analysis, of course, erica, is that just as david suggested, this is the party of trump, period. the national party has said formally and officially that they have no policy positions other than what donald trump tells them will be their positions. and so if you want to get somewhere in politics and running on the republican line, you have to try and align yourself with donald trump because there are no other positions to cling to that have any real stability. >> yeah, it is interesting sometimes. you flood a lot of money, doesn't make a difference. susan collins in the last senate cycle. still won or beto o'rourke. the donald trump effect here. you look at someone like doug mastriano. trump wanted state officials who would be willing to do his bidding, possibly in overturning the election. that's all they needed in 2020 and folks like rathens berger stood up to him. 2020 election denier.
7:10 am
if wins, a million miles from there but would have the power, would he not, to just flip the stage. >> the power to appoint the secretary of state. someone would imagine someone appointed to the job he's aligned with in these baseless claims about the election. the thing about doug mastriano that is really interesting to watch is obviously, the republican establishment is quite worried. they think the state became a little further out of reach in the governor's office there. if you looked at the republican governor's association statement last night, they didn't actually even fully endorse mastriano or did not say they'll get in there and for now, that's my point. we know what the political climate looks like. the economy, inflation. joe biden's low standing. this is a year that is going to be advantageous for republicans. so how does doug mastriano take advantage of that? do we see him talking about the economy or is he only going to run now through november on repeating lies about the 2020
7:11 am
election? i think that's something that will determine, perhaps, his fate in november. >> or perhaps both, right? he could run on both. >> david chalian, errol louis, thank you for both this morning. cnn crews get a firsthand look at what was left behind in a major defeat to russian battle group. plus, congress now demanding answers, even consequences as the baby formula shortage drags on, we'll speak to the congresswoman leading next week's congressional hearing. later this hour, the justice department uncovered a tunnel straight from tijuana, mexico, to a warehouse outside of san diego. more evidence of the challenge officials face at the border. a cnn exclusive with homeland security secretary alejandro myorkas. what would you like the power to do? at fidelity, your dedicated advisor will help you create a comprehensive wealth plan for your full financial picture.

7:16 am
military is claiming that it targeted and hit a battery of u.s. supply howitzers near ukraine's border with poland way on the western side of the country. >> very far to the west. important to note too, the news comes as russia is also seeing setbacks on the battlefield. yesterday, the cnn team found the charred remains of russian armored vehicles after what's believed to be one of the single biggest defeats of the war. senior international correspondent sam kiley was there. >> the first signs of a russian disaster, a russian tank being salvaged by ukrainian troops. a few days ago, this was the scene on the edge of these
7:17 am
woods. russian pontoon bridges under ferocious ukrainian artillery attack. the ukrainian commander with us casts an eye to the sky looking for russian drones. this is no place for complacency. ukraine and nato have claimed that russia suffered badly here. they estimate 70 to 80 vehicles destroyed and a whole russian battle group of a thousand men mauled. so we're at the edge now of the area where the russian army was caught after it had crossed the pontoon river. you can see down here there's a destroyed tank next to it and personnel carrier and if you look down the road here, we've got another armored personnel carrier and another and another. the ukrainians were able, they say, due to their superior reconnaissance and intelligence to work out where the russians were going to cross and then bring in devastating levels of artillery.
7:18 am
this is the result. this is only the edge of it. >> reporter: russia now shifted its attacks elsewhere, at least for now. when you see this, how do you feel? >> super. >> translator: great, i understand our artillery is working and our troops are working too because there was both artillery and ground fire. the units in cooperation with other troops were pushing the enemy across the river on foot. >> reporter: shattered russian armor is scattered along this path through the woodland. on the ground, we can't move forward. track is mined. >> a real disaster for the russians, but something that the ukrainians now are saying here that means that the pressure is off this particular front for now, and that they believe the russians are focusing more of their efforts elsewhere. >> reporter: ukrainian soldiers pick over the victory. the chilling truth is that many of the comrades have ended up like this. and while this is a success in the grinding war for ukraine, russia remains an immediate
7:19 am
threat. and they asked us to get out of here with their military commander because they're worried that our cars are going to attract attention and therefore this is clearly still an extremely active area. as it was for the russians, considerable relief to leave. s sam kiley. >> sam kiley, thank you so much. with me now to discuss, jennifer, who studied war and this conflict very carefully. good to have you back. >> thanks for having me. >> you see there, the enormous losses of the russian military in what was a key front in their attack. trying to cross the river to get across and try to surround ukrainian forces in the east. they already had to retrieve from kyiv. now they're retreating from
7:20 am
kharkiv. ukraine's second largest city and now at least stalling in the east and i wonder, when you look at the whole picture, does that show you the russian military is losing in ukraine? >> i do think the russian military is losing and i think you framed it right. there were four initial axes of advance and main effort was significant and now in eastern ukraine, the russians attempting to set a new main effort and encircle ukrainian forces in the donbas and take the entirety of the donetsk and luhansk, and even that now, the second attempt is stalling and revising down their objectives once again. >> so ukrainians in the midst of this have been on the advance in some areas. push back and remove russian forces around kharkiv and attempting counteroffenses further in the east to gain back some of the territory rather
7:21 am
than what had been the conventional wisdom is just cede that to russia and that will be enough. do ukrainian forces have the ability not just to hold off russian advances but to take back territory that had already been gained? >> we're starting to see the ukrainians develop operational momentum, which means it is possible they're going to be able to take the fight back into areas russians have seized and are attempting to annex. nothing is certain in this war and ukraine still needs a lot of western support in order to be able to sustain what is a very grinding battle of attrition, but we're continuing to see that russians take very high losses to suffer morale problems and to struggle to actually cohere. >> with that military side in mind, there is still this talk about some sort of face-saving move for putin to allow him to withdraw, to retreat from
7:22 am
ukraine completely. to, listen ukrainians, just grant him a little bit more of the east and forget about crimea and we can reach some sort of agreement here but given that putin does not abide by agreements. he hasn't, going back to bucharest from the '90s, guaranteed ukraine's sovereignty to the minusk accords, and make up his own reality at home. he'll claim victory no matter what happens. is talk of a face-saving move a way to tie? >> i think it is counterproductive and the reality here is that putin will stop when he is stopped. ukraine is fighting the fight, all that it's asked for is western support and i think it is crucial that the west not lose resolve to enable ukraine in its defense of its territorial integrity and its sovereignty and i think the other reality here is that we are only beginning to learn of the war crimes and the atrocities that are happening in
7:23 am
occupied areas of ukraine and that itself argues against any kind of concession to putin. >> final question here. we see what appears to be the end to this final stand in the azovstal steel plant in mariupol with the possibility that many hundreds of ukrainian forces will end up in russian hands here. we know russia's track record, right? in terms of war crimes, attacks on civilians and prisoners of war, et cetera. was this a failure by the west to let this happen, to not make some sort of attempt, granted, risky to rescue those people rather than leave them to the fate that these soldiers were showing here on screen likely face? >> look, i think at the time that the encirclement in the siege of that facility was secured by the russians, very difficult to intervene, especially if the russians don't intend to negotiate, which we know that they don't. but i do think the west could have done more to enable the ukrainians to fight for mariupol and it is essential, again, that the west continue to support
7:24 am
ukraine and that we acknowledge that the one axis of advance that the russians did succeed on is that southern axis of advance out of crimea as commanded by the russian military commander who previously led in syria and cohesive russian lines of advance and that's where the ukrainians need help in pushing back. >> it's important to recognize that because yes, a lot of ukrainian wins, russian losses but that can be characterized as a russian win there. jennifer, thank you for joining us again. >> you bet. still ahead, two children hospitalized as a result of the ongoing baby formula shortage. congress is now demanding answers. we'll speak with the lawmaker leading those hearings next. pai, we can help actively repair enamel in its weakened state. it's innovative. my go to toothpaste is going to be pronamel repair.

a federal judge signed off on a consent decree to offset the nationwide baby formula shortage for abbott to reopen the michigan plant and this of course after a recall forced the company to stop production. executives from abbott and two other major formula manufacturers are now set to appear before congress next week along with the fda commissioner who will also be facing questions. joining me to discuss, the democrat from colorado. she chairs the house committees, oversight and investigations panel. good to have you with us this morning. >> good morning.
7:30 am
>> good morning. house speaker nancy pelosi also suggested an indictment may be necessary after all is said and done. could criminal charges be on the table here? >> well, we need to investigate what really happened here. so at this point, that's not congress's job but the job of the prosecutors to decide whether there were criminal activities. we're just in the early stages of the investigation. >> in terms of this investigation, the fda as you know very well is facing criticism on a number of fronts including the fact that it took two months to investigate these whistle blower claims at abbott. your committee oversees the fda. did the fda need an overhaul? did they have what they need to do their job at this point? >> well, erica, frankly, the fda stands for the food and drug administration, and for many years, this is not new, for many years, the food part of that has been really locally neglected. what needs to happen is the fda needs to put a lot more
7:31 am
resources into inspecting facilities. particularly facilities like this abbott plant where abbott is producing about 45% of infant formula in the u.s. in this plant. i mean, the original complaints were in september of last year. then the whistle blower complaint. then the all in all, with the consent decree, two more weeks. approved by judge, good news but two more weeks to get up and going and six to eight more weeks before families can see this on the shelves. that's almost a year since the initial complaint started to come in. that's really unacceptable. i've been talking to families in washington, dc and in denver, colorado, who are driving around desperately trying to find food for their infants. >> and, you know, i look at all of this and look, i am looking forward to watching these hearings as well because i have
7:32 am
a lot of questions that to this point have not been answered but the fact you need to hold these hearings to get these answers, that's frustrating to a lot of americans. some of these, what feel like simple questions, right, the fda even saying, we're going to allow to import some foreign formula. the fact we can't even get a realtimel timeline on when othe relief could be available, why is it so hard to get the answers? >> this is why we have an oversight committee. my committee has done this for years and years. we had a hearing a couple of weeks ago on the oil and gas companies and price gouging. we have had hearings on all kinds of issues like this. when you bring it to light, frequently, then change happens. what my goal with this hearing is not only to figure out why it took so long to identify these problems, why it took so long to remedy them, but also, to figure out what the fda needs to have a
7:33 am
robust oversight plan, not just because we have a crisis right now, but going forward into the future for all of our fda certified food facilities. >> listen, a lot of parents too are asking for some sort of plan moving forward so we don't end up in this situation again, whether it's formula or something else. we'll tackle that another day because i want to get you on one other point. i know you co-chair the house pro-choice caucus. you've been vocal since the draft decision was released, again, a draft and a lot of talk whether this will mobilize voters in the fall. the latest cnn polling which was taken, of course, after that leak shows there's a serious midterm enthusiasm gap here. those who oppose roe are nearly twice as eager to vote as those who support it. that's what you're facing right now. >> i saw some polling yesterday that said exactly the opposite.
7:34 am
and in talking to people in my district in colorado, i actually think this is going to be a huge motivating factor for younger women who just always assume that they would have the full range of health care, including abortion. and older women too, who thought that this fight was fought and won. so i don't know what that polling says, but i've seen just the opposite. i think it's going to be a huge motivator for people in the midterm elections, especially once the final opinion comes out and people start to realize the hard reality that people who live in almost half the states will have their ability to get health care severely limited. >> congresswoman diana degette, good to have you with us. >> good to talk to you, erica. well, there is big news in sports where u.s. soccer announced a landmark agreement that will now provide equal pay and equal prize money, including a at world cups with male and
7:35 am
female players. first federation in fifa, the international governing body for football to adopt a policy that equally splits tournament prize money. we should note, erica, throughout the women's national team, consistently outperforms the men's national team. >> yeah, kind of important to note that too. the women's world cup first established in 1991, the american team won it 50% of the time and player telling "wall street journal," quote, there were a lot of young girls to see what we accomplished and grow up recognizing their value rather than fighting to find it. let that quote stick with you for a minute. >> that's a great one. still ahead, new details about the attacked plans made in advance by the suspected gunman in buffalo new york. the alleged shooter shared details of his plot on social media half hour before the attack. why weren't the warning signs heeded?
