it is friday october 30th. coming up on "early today," breaking news, a convicted rapist on the run from police has been shot and killed. then to the senate burning the midnight oil in a deal that might help end washington grid locke. then to a troubled jeb bush who is campaign has reached a pivotal point after the tussle are marco rubio. plus, why do certain people love to be afraid? the science of fear? on this halloween eve, today starts now. i'm paige hopkins. authorities have shot and killed a wanted man for attempted murder of a tennessee police
officer. floyd ray cooke had been on the run nearly a week. overnight authorities found cook while searching near a residence just off a kentucky highway. he was armed with a handgun and a shoot out occurred with kentucky state police and a u.s. marshal. cook was wounded and pronounced dead at the scene not. officers injured. also a budget deal will fund the government through 2017 and also suspends the debt ceiling until march 2017. that bill passed with 18 republicans joining all democrats in voting yes. the house passed their version on wednesday as part of outgoing house speaker boehner's effort to clean out the barn for incoming speaker paul ryan. the bill now goes to obama's desk for his senior. and this morning, jeb bush and marco rubio are going in opposite directions.
bush is dealing with the fallout from a disappointing debate where his attack on rubio was a big swing and miss. and voters are taking notice. nbc tracked him down yesterday. >> a conference call that you said you were going to get better at this. what are you going to do to get better at this zwr we got eight more debates. i'm gonna have to do what other candidates do. which is rudely interrupt. not answer the questions asked and hopefully the debate monitors will ask better questions as well. >> and rubio has his own problems. his low senate attendance record has him in the bull's eye. senator minority leader harry reid told rubio abandoned the senate and he should resign. it takes a lot of chutzpah to
compare himself to mccain and obama. we have two reports. >> jeb bush now forced to wonder whether today marks the beginning of a end or a comeback. >> we have the greatest organization. we're doing fine. >> bush on defense as what many viewed as the dismal debate night defined by a punch that didn't land against rubio and his missed senate votes. >> you can campaign or just resign and let somebody else take the job. >> yorm you ever complaining about john mccain's vote record. the only reason you are doing it now is someone's convinced you it is going to help. >> i do think it ought to show up and work for crying out loud. >> a strategy add advocating even some smothupporters. he still has money muscle, his brother fundraising in washington. but donors could defect if
something doesn't change soon. >> you never want to be answering questions the day after a debate about whether your campaign is on life support or not. >> the calls to reset his message, coming after months of falling fortunes for the former favorite. the six month slide taking a toll on his attitude. >> i got a lot of cool things i could do other than sit around and being miserable. >> bush picked up a key establishment endorsement in new hampshire. and establishing a confidence he hopes supporters will feel. >> reporter: this is peter alexander in washington, where ted cruz fresh off a commanding debate performance is looking to make his next stand. the texas senator abruptly postponing a swing. and radio and cruz's campaigns
have seen a fundraising spike. roughly a million dollars each since last night where cruz unleashed a missile against the media and the moderators. >> donald trump are you a comic book villain? ben carson, can you do math? how about talking about the issues people care about? >> the dma"new york times" call on chris christie to drop out. his response, can't read the article because i don't have a subscription. i'm not going anywhere. that fiery exchange just houred after this impassioned appeal about misplaced priority. >> we have people out of work. with we have isis and al qaeda attacking us and we're talking about fantasy football. can we stop?

>> trump complementing him today. >> we're getting along. we're winking at each other. >> both campaigns saying steady performances unlikely to shake up the race. >> trump is not in trouble. he still has the poll numbers. he's still the republican part's front runner. still the one to beat. we have dramatic images from a near disaster in flort laud dale airport yesterday. a passenger jet caught fire moments before takeoff. luckily no serious injuries. >> passengers and other planes got the dramatic scene on video. at florida's fort lauderdale airport. the plane was fully loaded with fuel and preparing to takeoff to caracas venezuela. that is when the crew of a plane behind it reported seeing fuel
leaking. >> any time you have a fully fueled aircraft taxiing with an engine fire, fire and fuel don't mix at an airport. anywhere for that matter. >> soon after takeoff the engine caught fire. two emergency chutes deployed and everybody quickly evacuated. >> we got out and started running to the grass as far away from the airplane as possible. >> one person sustained a head injury. most were believed to have been injured during the quick evacuation and not by the fire. >> this was an incident, versus a disaster. >> all though fire crews had the fire under control in less than ten minutes the airport remained closed three hours. dynamic is a charter airline based in north carolina with just a few regularly scheduled flight, mainly to south america
each week. there is a big question that still needs answering this morning. how did an an expensive unmanned military blimp get loose and drift across two states wreaking havoc along the what i? tom costello has the latest. >> reporter: shotgun blasts in the pennsylvania countryside. as the many itry pumped more than a hundred rounds into the top secret blimp to let the last of the helium escape. then cutting it out of the trees. crews did manage to roll up the tail section. the mile long tether that snagged utility lines and caused power outages also cut into sections and carted away. >> very steep terrain down there. a stream runs through the sight and it's heavily wooded. >> it may take military helicopters to lift the rest of the blimp out the forest.
the blimp cost $235 million. not 1.3 billion as first said. a test program for 360 degrees airborne radar watching the east coast for missiles or drones. i was turned off in april whenever never spotting a jie ro copter flying to capitol hill. local residents are thank it it missed a nearby nuclear power plant. and coming down here of all places where the amish still spurn all things modern. >> that was tom costello reporting. a big recall. honda is alerting owners of 300,000 accords. the problem, is air bogs could deploy without being in a crash. if a door is, quote, forcefully slammed with the ignitionen the side air bags could deploy. they are aware of 19 minor injuries related to that.
