7:02 am
on something that's become your motto, when they go low, we go high. why did you think it was important? >> the meaning behind her rallying cry. good morning, america. we start with the big news overnight on the midterm elections. abc news is projecting democrat mark kelly will win the arizona senate race after ballot counts were updated. >> it's an important victory for the democrats who were trying to keep their majority in the senate, but the story is far from over with some critical races yet to be decided and one for sure heading to a runoff. >> currently the seat count stands even at 49 for the democrats, 49 for the republicans with 51 needed to gain control. abc's white house correspondent maryalice parks joins us now from capitol hill with the latest. maryalice, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning. yeah, big win overnight for democrats. maricopa county, the phoenix area, reported results from about 75,000 additional ballots
7:03 am
overnight, and in those totals democratic senator mark kelly was able to secure his lead and his win over republican candidate blake masters who was backed by former president trump. kelly is a former nasa astronaut. he's married to former congressman gabby giffords and pitched himself as a bipartisan problem solver. we know president biden called senator kelly to congratulate him. he will now head back to washington, and with that win, democrats are closer to potentially securing their majority in the senate. now, in the arizona governor's race, which has also gotten so much attention nationwide, democrat katie hobbs maintained her lead over republican kari lake with new results posted overnight, but no final projection yet in that race. but, of course, we are all still waiting to see what will happen in nevada. all eyes there. right now that race just could not be closer. with 94% of the vote reported in the state, republican adam laxalt leads the incumbent
7:04 am
catherine cortez masto by just about 800 votes. now, we are expecting additional reporting out today. additional votes to be reported out today but ballots that were dropped in the mail on or before election day, they have to arrive by today. now, in the end, if democrats win that seat in nevada, then that's it. then they win. they will have the majority in the senate. of course, they have the tiebreaking vote with the vice president. but if republicans win, then just like two years ago, everything will hang on georgia. that runoff in georgia on december 6th will decide it all. whit? >> yeah, buckle up if it goes in that direction. and let's talk about the house for a minute, maryalice, because republicans are confident they'll take control. but just how soon could some of those races be called? >> reporter: that's the big question, whit. we know we have 19 house races that have yet to be projected. they're still outstanding. right now republicans lead in about ten of those. democrats lead in nine. but republicans only need to
7:05 am
pick up 7 of those 19 outstanding races to take control of the house. so right now odds are still in their favor. the majority of those outstanding races are in california, so really we're waiting on that state to finalize their vote and report out their vote totals before we know exactly who will control the house. eva? >> all eyes watching to see where those vote totals land. maryalice parks for us there, thank you. this morning, president biden is in cambodia for a series of conferences with southeast asian leaders ahead of monday's critical meeting with the chinese president. abc's britt clennett is there. good morning to you, britt. >> reporter: good morning, eva. yeah, president biden is here in cambodia on a mission to woo southeast asian nations with his message that america is back. this as chinese influence in the region grows, though. president biden here telling the gathering just now the region is at the heart of his indo-pacific strategy. it's the fastest growing region in the world and america's fourth largest goods trading partner. so there's a range of economic reasons to show commitment here, but the bigger dynamic at play
7:06 am
is u.s./china rivalry. this region is caught in the middle of the geopolitical tussle as beijing flexes its economic power here and all of this, of course, ahead of that much anticipated meeting between biden and chinese president xi jinping on the sidelines of the g20 summit in bali. their first in-person meeting since biden became president, though they've met several times before when they were both vps. but tensions have reached a boiling point over the years on a number of fronts including trade, the pandemic and human rights. all eyes will be on that meeting. will there be a reset in relations? taiwan is expected to be a major sticking point, also china's tacit support for putin's war in ukraine, and biden tomorrow meeting with leaders of japan and south korea just as north korea has fired a record number of missiles in recent weeks, so plenty on the table as biden visits this region. that high-stakes meeting with xi will be front and center, though. eva? >> britt clennett, thank you so much. the remnants of hurricane
7:07 am
nicole moving into the northeast after the storm left a trail of destruction in florida. greg dutra from wls, our abc inhica, joins n sarwius i knowoue en storm. good morning, greg. >> reporter: good morning to you and some folks have to find new homes now because of all that damage. look at this coastal damage video we have coming in from around the daytona area. that yard that you see there, that's panning to the left side of your screen, they lost about 30 feet of their yard. some losing more than that including their entire homes. take a look at some of this video. as we head into virginia and as nicole headed up the coast, it was doing this. a lot of tornado warnings, no actual tornados, but this funnel cloud video out of virginia shows how much business nicole meant. there it is as it tracks up the coast bringing rainfall to the appalachian mountains, four to six inches of rain. as we head through the rest of the day, that rain which has moved through new york city early this morning now in the green mountains of vermont into the white mountains of new hampshire and maine and finally out of the u.s. it is no longer our problem by about 3:00 this afternoon. janai?
7:08 am
>> all right, greg, thank you. turning now to rsv cases pushing hospitals to the brink filling pediatric units. some at or near capacity as the flu season starts to heat up. c.s. mott children's hospital in michigan announcing thursday it is 100% full. >> we have stretchers in the hallway. we have children being treated in chairs in the hallway. >> reporter: mott now forced to deny incoming pediatric transfers from other hospitals and postpone surgeries to try and increase the number of beds. >> two days ago we were giving over 400 breathing treatments in that day. during the rest of the year we're probably around 100, 200 max. >> reporter: rsv cases overwhelming pediatric hospitals nationwide. pediatric occupancy now at 78%. in maine last month shannon goodwin's infant daughter rue was diagnosed with rsv. >> she was gray and limp.
7:09 am
>> reporter: goodwin brought rue to the doctor, but her case quickly became more severe. >> they called 911, rushed her to the hospital where they tried to intubate her seven times, and then they had to do cpr for 4 1/2 minutes because they lost her heartbeat. >> reporter: after ten days she was taken off the ventilator and is now doing better. this elementary school in kansas city shutting down for three days after more than a fifth of its students came down with respiratory illnesses like covid-19, rsv and the flu. so glad rue is doing so much better. let's bring in abc new medical contributor dr. darien sutton. welcome, dr. sutton. let's take a closer look at flu numbers. the cdc estimates so far this season 2.8 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations and 1,300 deaths from the flu. those numbers have doubled since last week estimates, and they doubled from the week before. as an emergency room physician how could you not be concerned at these numbers? >> extremely concerned. janai, these are some of the
7:10 am
highest numbers we've not only seen in the past two to three years but in the past ten years. and what's more concerning also is that the majority of cases that i'm diagnosing and that we're seeing across the country are influenza a, which is typically more associated to a more aggressive season. so that combined with the rising rates of rsv and a slowly smoldering, slightly increasing rate of covid-19, we're really trying to prepare ourselves for crowded emergency rooms, long wait times and overcrowded hospitals. >> and during that piece you said rsv is really concerning. i mean, especially as a parent to a young kid. what are some ways we can keep ourselves and family safe especially as we head into thanksgiving and the holidays? >> first and foremost preventing transmission and preventing infection and help protecting people from hospitalization and death. the best way to start doing that is with flu shots. getting your flu shot right now will help provide you protection for the thanksgiving period and so on, christmas and new year's and the reason why i say these holidays is because people typically go indoors, and, unfortunately, that increases
7:11 am
the risk of transmission. also when you're in a crowded space around others wearing a mask will help protect you against most viral illnesses and cleaning high touch surfaces when you get home making sure that when you're in the home, if anyone is sick, that you follow bake precautions, wearing a mask and try your best to stay at home if you feel like you might have symptoms. >> and i want to ask you real quick with two young kids, what is the one sign of rsv you need to get to the hospital? >> signs of respiratory distress, if your child is grunting, wheezing or if you notice they're belly breathing, all signs we qualify as respiratory distress that needs intervention and at least evaluation by a provider. >> thank you so much, dr. sutton. >> whit, over to you. >> all right, janai. now to the war in ukraine and a major development. ukrainians celebrating in kherson after the retreat of russian forces. abc's tom soufi burridge is on the ground in the region with the latest on this counteroffensive. tom, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. yeah, there is a real palpable mood of celebration across ukraine this morning. kherson is a resource-rich region in the south, which putin said would be part of russia forever.
7:12 am
after a long and grinding military campaign the region's capital is back under ukrainian control again. this morning, sheer joy on the streets of kherson. ukraine recapturing its biggest prize yet, locals welcoming ukrainian troops in as heroes. [ crowd chanting ] nine months of russian rule now at an end. the ukrainian national anthem ringing out into the night. ♪ in video posted by ukrainian officials, it is another major setback for vladimir putin's war and an iconic and strategic victory for ukraine. president zelenskyy calling it an historic day. [ speaking non-english ] saying, "the people of kherson never gave up." with russia retreating, ukrainian troops capturing stocks of abandoned ammunition. look at the area above the dnipro river taken back by ukraine in a matter of days, a thousand square miles according to an official.
7:13 am
abc's james longman is in newly liberated land. >> until very recently this was the front line of the fight for the south, and take a look. the destruction is almost completely total. there is shrapnel everywhere. craters in the ground and just about every village in this area looks like this now. >> reporter: meanwhile, russia still targeting energy infrastructure across ukraine. >> this is the other battleground in ukraine right now. this thermal power plant was struck by a russian cruise missile. the ukrainians in a race to bring it back online as winter approaches. the company here saying it now needs supplies from abroad to carry out the repairs. well, after this latest crushing defeat for russia, the kremlin indicating it wants to negotiate but ukrainian officials believe they can only guarantee their freedom from moscow in the long term by inflicting more defeats on russia. there isn't an easy end to the war in sight. eva?
7:14 am
>> tom soufi burridge for us there in ukraine. thank you, tom. now to the latest on the twitter turmoil. abc news obtaining exclusive audio from elon musk's meeting demanding employees head back to the office. legal battles now shaping up and then there's the concern about proper policing of twitter impersonators. abc's deidre bolton is here with more. deidre, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, eva. elon musk says there's an element of nothing ventured, nothing gained to make great improvements at twitter, but some recent decisions may be proving too drastic. this morning, we're learning more about the internal chaos at twitter after leaked audio of that companywide meeting with ceo elon musk. >> i think we just definitely need to make -- bring in more cash than we spend, or if we don't do that and there's a massive negative cash flow, then bankruptcy is not out of the question. >> reporter: within two weeks of his company takeover, musk moving at breakneck speed firing nearly 50% of the workforce.
7:15 am
some say musk is trying to rally the troops, but key execs who were thought to be part of the new twitter are resigning and top advertisers pausing their spending until there's more clarity on twitter's direction. another stumble, the verification function. after a lot of back and forth twitter is pausing the $8 paid check mark after launching it a few days ago. amid all the uncertainty some twitterers users tweeting misinformation even impacting pharmaceutical giant eli lilly's stock on friday. the battle against impostor accounts and misinformation one of many that musk has to win to keep twitter relevant. closer to home, musk also mandating that most employees work from the office or find a new job. >> if you can't show up in an office and you do not show up at the office, resignation accepted, end of story. >> reporter: it's a huge reversal from twitter's previous policy and the cause of a proposed class action lawsuit. >> this is a trumped up way for twitter to try to avoid its obligations to those employees. >> reporter: the stakes are
7:16 am
high, and many cracks are showing. abc news just learning that twitter is late in sending out severance information to laid off employees, and in communicating that somehow sent a companywide message via the bcc function prompting even more internal chaos. janai? >> lots of people talking about that yesterday. deidre, thank you. we turn now to the controversy brewing withment of as customs and border patrol deals with an influx of migrants at the southern border. the agency's chief saying the biden administration has asked him to step aside. abc's matt rivers is here with us. matt, good morning to you. the cbp chief refusing to resign. >> reporter: yeah, that's exactly right, janai. tensions this morning within the department of the homeland security as dhs secretary alejandro mayorkas asked the current head of customs and border protection, chris magnus, to resign. but magnus doesn't want to leave, refusing to resign. this according to a "washington post" report on friday. magnus hasn't even been in the job for a year yet. he was confirmed by the senate
7:17 am
last year in what was a very tough vote where republicans did their best to tie him to what they like to call president biden's open border policies but magnus has taken a pretty hard line at the border continuing to summarily expel certain migrants. most recently targeting the vast number of venezuelans that have been arriving at the southern border. this administration like others past have been trying to come up with a way to deal with the record number of migrants arriving at the u.s. southern border. more than 2 million migrants arriving in just the last fiscal year, a record number. immigration, a massive issue for the united states for whichever administration's in charge and whichever person happens to be the director of the cbp. whit? >> something to watch. all right. matt rivers, our thanks to you this morning. we move now to the frightening moments on board an airline diverted to atlanta when a passenger was allegedly spotted with a box cutter. abc's phil lipof is here with more. phil, good morning. >> reporter: right. whit, this is just breaking overnight. some really sense moments in the

serious side effects include allergic reactions post-injection reactions, liver problems, and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection-site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. every other month, and i'm good to go. ask your doctor about every-other-month cabenuva. i'm so glad we did this. i'm so glad we did this. i'm so glad we did this. life is for living. let's partner for all of it. i'm so glad we did this. edward jones why do dermatologists worldwide recommend la roche-posay? effective skincare like la roche-posay double repair face moisturizer delivers double-action to help repair skin's barrier and provide 48-hour hydration for healthy-looking skin. la roche-posay.
