discovered stuck inside an 18-wheeler. >> an out of control driver hit several cars in north carolina. all that -- >> a terrifying bridge collapse in new zealand. four tourists plunged 25 feet. amazingly, they walked away. >> that closes out the game. >> how difficult was it playing through this illness tonight? >> i can't explain it. it was amazing. i got nothing left. >> putin is devoting his own military just to barely hold together by a thread his sole ally. >> he's challenging your leadership, mr. president. >> on "cbs this morning." >> donald trump proved once and for all that he does indeed have the hispanic vote. >> i'm hispanic and we vote for mr. trump! yes, mr. trump! this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota. let's go places.
7:03 am
with just to "cbs this morning." republicans in the house are split in two and scrambling to find a leader. a sudden and unexpected decision on thursday turned the election of a new house speaker into chaos. >> majority leader kevin mccarthy, the front runner, dropped out of the race to succeed john boehner. two other candidates, chaffetz and webster, are still in the running. paul ryan is still saying no to members who are begging him to run for speaker. nancy cordes is on capitol hill where republicans are trying to pull themselves together. >> reporter: good morning. house republicans are meeting behind closed doors, regrouping. we've been asking them what is the path ahead. no one seems to know. they don't know how long it's going to take to find a leader. and they don't know who would want to lead them in this highly charged environment. >> my statement stands. i haven't changed anything. >> reporter: party leaders are
7:04 am
begging wisconsin's paul ryan to run for speaker as the gop rushes to fill a power vacuum. >> i think i shocked some of you, huh? >> reporter: majority leader kevin mccarthy pulled out of the speaker's race at the last possible moment after a vote he was examined pected to win. his announcement left lawmakers reeling, including his two opponents. mccarthy had faced opposition from the same 40 hard line conservatives who wanted to unseat the current speaker, john boehner. one said mccarthy's exit from the race is a victory for the american people. >> they want congress to actually respect conservatives and other members of the congress. that has not happened very much in the last four and a half years. >> reporter: not everyone saw it that way. >> we can't allow a small minority of 30 to 35 people to had come the house of representatives. >> reporter: florida republican iliana rose lehtinen called it a
7:05 am
fight for the soul of the gop. >> we need someone willing to negotiate and talk to those on the other side. those are not bad ways to govern. >> reporter: walter jones sent a cryptic letter to conference chairwoman cathy rogers saying pif any candidate for speaker hs committed any misdeeds, he should withdraw from the race. mccarthy was asked if that had anything to do with his decision. >> no. >> reporter: you can put a rest to it right now. >> no. come on. >> reporter: it's now unclear who will be leading the house, which needs to vote to raise the debt ceiling by the end of the month and has to figure out how to get the government funded by december. speaker boehner says he will stay on until a replacement is chosen. but ironically, he resigned because he said he was trying to avoid the very kind of leadership crisis we're now witnessing. >> nancy, thanks. cbs news's john dickerson,
7:06 am
moderator of "face the nation," is with us. he'll interview two republicans on sunday that demonstrate the split between the house establishment and the freedom caucus. john, good morning. what happened to march kat-- mccarthy? what's happening to the republican party? is the tail wagging the dog? >> there's wagging all over the place, the dogs have run amok. the problem is no one can get 218 votes, the number of republicans you need to be elected speaker. even before mccarthy made this bombshell announcement, i was talking to a member who said, he could win in the conference but they didn't think they could win 218 on the house floor, which would be a public embarrassment for him. there's still nobody who could get those 218 votes. >> the number of republicans in the entire caucus is? >> 247. >> can anyone win? is it clear that paul ryan has
7:07 am
the votes? >> their argument in the freedom caucus is, we were given the majority and we have buckled and not stood firm. now that they've gotten john boehner out and kevin mccarthy out, they're feeling good. why would they want to buckle? >> what do they want? >> they want a variety of things. they want a harder line from the republican leadership to enforce conservative principles. they say, we want the house leader to take on mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, and make him be tougher. it's very rare for the speaker to tell the senate majority leader what to do. it's a very high bar. and kevin mccarthy said basically, i couldn't meet their demands. >> paul ryan is being laid out as the compromise candidate. is it clear he has the votes of the freedom caucus? >> paul ryan, the chair of the house ways and means committee, his announcement that he didn't want the job came out so fast it almost broke the sound barrier.
7:08 am
paul ryan has had lots of fights with these conservatives over fiscal matters, over the debt limit. it doesn't make intellectual sense that he would be the bridge-building consensus candidate. if he wants to be president, there is no road to the presidency through the house speak speakership because it's such a tough job, as we're seeing. >> can anyone control these people who represent the freedom caucus? can anybody in the republican party? >> for right now it doesn't look like anybody can. >> unless they get their way, they're willing to take the house down? >> yes, because they think the house has been selling out republicans and conservatives for the last many years. and it's finally their chance to stop that. >> thanks, john. on "face the nation" on sunday, john will have the latest on the race for speaker for the house, goes one on one with donald trump, plus his rival dr. ben carson, this weekend here on
7:09 am
cbs. we're following a breaking story in arizona, another deadly shooting on a college campus. police say two students got into a fight outside a dorm at northern arizona university in flagstaff. four students were shot, one killed. an 18-year-old suspect is in custody. the motivae is unclear. president obama is on his way to roseburg, oregon right now to comfort the families affected by the umpqua community college shootings. the president responded with a call for stricter gun laws saying the violence has become routine. our major garrett confirms this morning that president obama is now considering using his executive power to expand the background checks. he wants to impose new requirements when someone buys from a high volume gun dealer. those dealers would be retired to obtain a license from the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. we're following a story about a drone that crashed near the white house.
7:10 am
it went down on the ellipse next to the white house's south lawn near the washington monument. police handed out tickets to the owners of the drone and confiscated the aircraft. they say it's not related terrorism. breaking news from the pentagon, the defense department will modify its troubled program to train syrian rebels to fight is. a senior official tells cbs news the obama administration will focus its policy to directly supply weapons and ammunition to vetted opposition forces already fighting on the ground. russia is denying reports this morning that some of its cruise missiles missed their targets in syria on wednesday. russia says it fired 27 missiles at 11 positions in north and northwest syria. they had been launched from warships more than 900 miles away in the caspian sea. u.s. officials believe at least four of those missiles landed in iran. the russian escalation is one of the topics that steve kroft
7:11 am
asked president obama about in a new interview for this sunday's "60 minutes." >> a year ago there was saber rattling over the iranian border. now it's going on in syria. you said a year ago we're the indispensable nation. president putin is challenging that leadership. >> in what way? >> he's moved troops into syria, for one. he's got people on the ground. two, the russians are conducting military operations in the middle east for the first time since world war ii. bombing the people that we are supporting. >> that's leading, steve? so let me ask you this question: when i came into office, ukraine was governed by a corrupt ruler who was a stooge of mr. putin. syria was russia's only ally in the region.
7:12 am
and today, rather than being able to count on their support and maintain the base they had in syria, which they've had for a long time, mr. putin is devoting his own troops, his own military, just to barely hold together by a thread his sole ally. >> he's challenging your leadership, mr. president. >> steve, i've got to tell you, if you think that running your economy into the ground and having to send troops in in order to prop up your only ally is leadership, then we've got a different definition of leadership. >> steve kroft is here. good morning. >> wow. >> you've interviewed him many times, he was especially feisty this time. what did he say about what russia is doing in syria? >> norah, i can't really say very much about what's in the interview, because the white house as embargoed it until
7:13 am
sunday. mostly he defends the positions he's taken already. we talked about pretty much everything. we talk about isis, we talk about -- a lot about vladimir putin, the inability of the united states to identify and recruit and train any kind of a moderate force in syria. we talk about his leadership, whether it's strong or whether the u.s. is projecting strength or weakness in the middle east. >> can you say what he said about him appearing to be very feisty? why do you think that is? >> i'm surmising that some of it has to do with the fact that he's a lame duck. in fact when we are doing a little walk and talk and shooting some b-roll after the interview, he did say he's finding the whole experience of not being on the ballot to be liberating. >> liberating? >> yes.
7:14 am
he said that it's sort of taken fear out of the equation, he doesn't have to be quite so careful about what he says. and i think you're seeing some of that. i think you maybe saw a little bit of it, a foreshadowing of it in the comments he made after this last school shooting. i think he's really -- he's sort of holding his ground. >> and he knows these things will extend beyond his watch and his ability to impact. >> right. we also talked about boehner and we talked about the situation with the republicans in congress. >> can't wait for "60 minutes" on sunday. >> we also talked about hillary clinton's e-mails. >> good. hillary clinton, joe biden, donald trump, all of that when you watch steve's full report on sunday's "60 minutes." new dangers this morning in south carolina after deadly flooding. the disaster is blamed for 19 deaths in the carolinas. it caused as much as a billion
7:15 am
dollars of damage there. flood warnings are up as waters head to south carolina. david begnaud is in andrews, where people are being urged to get out. >> reporter: good morning. water that caused catastrophic flooding in the capital of columbia has made its way east. we're in the town of andrews. there are homes with water inside. one man who lives just down the street told me he saw water rising at an inch an hour at one point yesterday. the governor says the flooding will be widespread over the next 72 hours, as more and more people are asked to voluntarily evacuate. >> if they come knock on your door, please leave. don't risk your life for this. the water is coming. >> reporter: south carolina has been devastated by flooding not seen in the state's history. more than a dozen people have been killed. hundreds more rescued. now, tens of thousands of people in low lying areas along the coast know they may need to abandon their homes over the

7:18 am
he says it appeared stone was defending a woman who was punched in the face. >> they knew each other or something. they had been hanging out before this happened. >> reporter: stone was stabbed a total of three times in his upper torso. the video shows what appears to be a large blood stain on his shirt. >> i saw a big red mark on the back of his shirt. there was another random person who walked by who said, i think you got stabbed. >> reporter: this man was driving by in his cab. >> they do this. they stabbed him again and again, this side, this side. >> reporter: lately thursday police released this video of the suspects fleeing the scene. they have not been caught. >> this incident is a very unfortunate altercation between two groups of folks who were enjoying the night life in midtown sacramento. >> reporter: the stabbing happened near the same sacramento streets where stone, a member of the air force, and two friends were celebrated in a parade just last month. the three men tackled a

the current price. the "los angeles times" reports on a deposition of bill cosby. a civil lawsuit claims he assaulted a woman at the play boy mansion in 1974. she was 15 at the time. in an earlier deposition he was asked, "when you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind you were going to use them for young women that you wanted to have essential with?" cosby replied yes. since then more than 40 women have come forward. table. i think this is a moment that gloria allred that represents these women is waiting for. >> waiting for, indeed. you have a young woman, judith huff, why is she allowed to go forward when no one else is? very simple.
7:34 am
she claims she was a victim of childhood sexual abuse and the civil law says if you are a >> if you are a child victim and you go through years of psychological abuse but somehow can't tie it up as to why you are under this mental anguish, once you tie it up in your own mind and say bill cosby in this incident was the cause, then you can go forward. >> there's no statute of limitations? >> very good. and mr. cosby says, wait a minute, she tried to sell her story to the national inquirer, she knew this was tied up long ago. but that's why we're here, the court decided it's not going to intervene. >> what's going to happen today? >> the deposition could go on for days and days. it's up to gloria allred. she doesn't have to stop. she is going to ask bill cosby not only about judith huff. she represents at least 20 of these other women.

the ruling workers party, a rare excuse to let western journalists into that closed-off country. seth doane is in pyongyang, north korea's closed-off capital city. >> reporter: good morning. it's so rare that foreign journalists to be granted access, that we agreed to things we normally wouldn't, like allowing government minders to follow us everywhere we go. here in north korea it is unusual just to drive down the street, so it seems newsworthy. we boarded our flight to north korea back in beijing. the in-flight magazine has glossy propaganda photos of its leaders, setting the tone for our trip. the first people to meet us at pyongyang's airport were government-assigned minders, who
7:37 am
will be with us every step of the way. the trip is carefully choreographed. we can't choose where we're to go. today we're being brought to the birthplace of kim il sung. he's credited with founding north korea and is the grandfather of current leader kim jong un. there were no surprises, as you can imagine. then what appeared to be a wrong turn through a rundown residential neighborhood. we didn't stay long. a look at the metro. deep below ground, old subway cars pull in and out beneath elaborate chandeliers. patriotic music is piped in. this is hardly just a casual stop at the subway. it is a deliberate effort to show us infrastructure at work. one of the things kim jong un has said is that he wants to

7:39 am
see flags out, people practicing dance routines at street corners, or putting the finishing touches on the city, painting the lanes of the sidewalk or cutting the grass. i saw one man clipping a patch of grass with scissors. norah? >> you do see that sometimes in asia. seth, thank you so much. fascinating to see inside. >> you can't talk to the old man but you can talk to the lady in the red sweater. interesting. coming up, what may be the loneliest airport in the world. ahead, why it's missing planes and passengers. and if you're heading out the door, set your dvr so you can watch "cbs this morning" any time you like. we'll be right back.

this morning, an this morning an airport built with dreams is becoming one of the nation's busineest. it's sitting almost empty. it cost hundreds of millions of
7:44 am
dollars to build. management is struggling to turn things around. dean reynolds has more. good morning, dean. >> reporter: good morning. welcome to mid-america airport in illinois. if you've never heard of mid-america airport in illinois, you're probably not alone. allegiant air flight 660 taxied up to the gate on thursday, up with four arrivals for the entire week. the airport is a good place for quiet contemplation, even meditation, because most days it is devoid of passengers or even airplanes to take them anywhere. it's been that way for nearly two decades. richard skillings is with citizens for smart growth, a local group which things the airplane is a waste of taxpayer dollars. >> it costs ten times what they
7:45 am
generate in revenue. >> reporter: it was built to ease the burden on lambert international airport in st. louis. lambert was once a hub for twa, but when twa went belly-up in 2001, there wasn't much of a burden left for lambert and consequently little reason for this terminal. it was supposed to serve hundreds of flights and hundreds of thousands of passengers. mid-america airport has a 10,000-foot runway, a state of the art facility, and next month, passenger service to las vegas. you can also fly from here to florida, which is great except when you consider the small number of actual passengers. the original plan here was for 85 gates. but that would be about 83 more than it needs right now. mid-america has never turned a profit in its 18-year history. last year, just 16,000 people
7:46 am

good morning to our viewers in the west. it is friday, october 9, welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead including the house race urged upside down. the real reason ahead why mccarthy dropped out. but first here is a look at today's eye opener. i don't want this job. came out so fast it almost broke the sound barrier. four students shot, an

king and norah o'donnell. police are investigating how a drone crash landed near the white house. >> the drone went down just below the white house south lawn. chip reed is at the white house with detail. >> reporter: there were two people on the grounds of the washington monument flying a drone. this is according to the secret service. they flew the drone over constitution avenue and into this area, which is known as the elip elipse, one of the most highly protected areas in washington, d.c. and here is the reason. the white house is just behind the trees over there. you might be able to see a little glimmer of the white from the white house there. an area where all security issues were taken seriously. the two people were issued citations. they were not arrested.
8:03 am
even though they take the drone issue very seriously. this is the third drone incident that has happened near the white house, one of them the drone actually landed on the white house grounds. in that case they locked down the white house. in this case they did not. but we are told this is not in any way related to terrorism. that's the good news. chip, thank you so much. republicans have no clear idea who will replace john boehner as house speaker. kevin hk cmccarthy surprised everyone by dropping out. walter jones sent a letter that says any candidate who has committed any misdeeds should withdraw from the speaker's race. mccarthy says that had nothing to do with his decision. jason chaffetz and daniel webster still want to be the next speaker. some hope paul ryan will run, but he says no. >> frank luntz has been friends with mccarthy for 20 years.
8:04 am
he's advised the majority leader informally and been a political sounding board it for him. frank is with us from los angeles. good morning. >> good morning. >> have you talked to kevin mccarthy in the last 24 hours? >> yes, i have. and in watching what happened, i started working up on capitol hill in 1993. so more than 20 years. and it was confused up until the last three or four day. it is now chaotic. and what was to me really pathetic, the inability of house republicans to unite, has now become a poison. and those people listening today should understand that when members come out and say we weren't respected or appreciated, house republicans are not functioning this morning and they haven't functioned for some time because this is a segment there that simply believes that it is better to blow up the process than it is to fix it. it is better to pull people apart than it is to find some way to collaborate and cooperate and to work together.
8:05 am
>> all right. i hear you on that. so are the other reasons why he said, look, i don't need this, i'm out of here? >> how are supposed to govern when you have 247 members, it requires 218. it's simple math. if you can't get to 218 votes on the floor, you can't get anything passed. and in the end, kevin mccarthy, more than anything else, understands his responsibility, not just to his constituents but to the country you have to be able to govern and if you can't get those votes what good is it to be speaker of the house? >> it had nothing to do with the statement from walter jones if there are any misdeeds you should withdraw now? i heard interviews from lawmakers he was asking for votes and by the afternoon he pulled out and somebody said something happened within that four-hour period. >> it's crap. i would use a stronger word but i don't want you guys to get fined by the fcc. but it's just not true. >> what about the other candidates who are still in the running? jason chaffetz and daniel webster? >> they talk about we need a new
8:06 am
face. this is not a debating society or the kiwanis club. this is the house speaker of the united states of america. you want somebody who knows the rules and procedure and you want someone who knows what regular order is and you want someone who can listen. not just to a narrow group of people but to the entire congress. i don't see any candidate other than paul ryan who has the capability of doing it. i know that they are talking to him. i know that there is a considerable amount of pressure on him. but if paul ryan says no, god help us! if we put someone in there who has been in office for two or on four years and doesn't know the process to run the house of representatives. >> john dickerson says there is not a path for paul ryan to the presidency through the speakership. do you agree? >> i know paul ryan very well, as well. in fact, i know him longer than i've known kevin mccarthy. paul ryan prioritizes his
8:07 am
family. he has got young kids and that matters to him and i respect that. imagine someone who puts their family and their commitments ahead of politics. he is focused on his job as chairman of ways and means so i can understand why he would say no. however, i'm hoping that he changes his mind because he is the only one who can talk to the conservatives, the moderates. he is the only one who understands the rules and he's got a brain for policy which is what we need in washington right now. >> frank luntz, thank you so much. >> thank you. "forbes" called him one of the most politically influential billionaires in the u.s. charles koch is the chairman and ceo of koch industries, a kansas-based conglomerate and it had revenue of $115 billion last year his endorsement of a gop candidate spells money and influence and more money. anthony mason spoke with koch for his first television interview. >> reporter: as ceo of the second largest private company in the country, charles koch has amassed a fortune that "forbes" estimates at nearly 43 billion
8:08 am
dollars. he and his brother david have cut federal regulations and radically shrinking the size of government. the koch's and their network of donors plan to spend $300 million in the campaign the next year. in an interview in his home in wichita, the 79-year-old ceo told me he doesn't like what he is hearing from republican candidates. you said you're not particularly high on any of the candidates so far? >> well, i didn't say that. i said i don't have the evidence that they are going to change the trajectory of the country. >> reporter: are you intending to support a candidate for president? >> well, it depends. >> reporter: if donald trump got the nomination, would you support him? >> i made a vow i'm not going to talk about individuals because if i -- just like david said he liked walker, so now all of the press is, well, we put all this money behind walker. >> right.
8:09 am
>> and he had to drop out. he didn't put a penny. david said he liked him. that doesn't mean we are -- we picked him. >> reporter: were you surprised that walker's candidacy didn't resonate in any way? >> well, i thought it would resonate better, but he wasn't a very good campaigner. you may agree with this on a number of issues or we agree with you on a number of issues, but if you're presenting him in a way that doesn't resonate, that doesn't do any good. so we can't support you. that's -- we are not interested in -- in attacking windmills. >> reporter: there are reports you're increasingly interested in fiorina. >> that is -- listen. if is there a report about me, just say, okay, that's it. probably the opposite. and then you'll be on firmer ground. >> reporter: so you're denying that report? >> absolutely! >> freedom partners, the umbrella group that the koch support has said fiorina is one of the candidates they are looking forward to hearing more

only one state does not criminalize first-time drinking and driving offenses. wisconsin has the highest level of binge drinking according to a 2012 study. peter greenberg went to the state capital to investigate the
8:16 am
dui divide. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. first time drunk drivers in wisconsin are typically given a fine and released after they sober up. those incidents related to excessive alcohol cost an estimated 6.8 billion each year and that is $1,200 for every man, woman and child in the state. it's gameday at the university of wisconsin and these badger fans are off to an early start. while there is no alcohol allowed in the stadium, parties outside are in full swing before 10:00 a.m. tailgates like this will happen all weekend across the country but wisconsin is the only state where first-time drinking and driving offenders will not be federally prosecuted. wisconsin state senator tim carpenter co-authored 4 of 6
8:17 am
bills this year to toughen drinking and driving laws and none made it to the sna for a vote. >> the assembly passed legislation last time and came in front of the senate transportation bills. >> reporter: scott fitzgerald is mantle leader of the state senate. >> if you had everyone appear before the judge, it would be very difficult, i think, for the system to deal with that right now. >> reporter: what you just said if i interpret the numbers correctly, that means so many people drunk out there they can't handle the system? >> if you went to a felony conviction i'm not sure what difference that would make. we are trying to make a approach that is more measured and the way to do that is get these people clean. >> the last time we were altogether, the family was in november. >> reporter: beyond the politics, but often in the debate, are the families forced into advocates. >> you were immediately disrupted in the worst way? judy and paul jenkins lost their daughter and granddaughter and

unborn their granddaughter was carrying in this 2008 accident. the man who killed them, mark benson, was sentenced to 30 years in pretty much. it was his fourth offense while operating a vehicle while intoxicated and received among the state's stiffest penalties. >> that is a pretty current picture of them. >> reporter: but the judge says mandatory minimum sentence on first-time offenders may have prevented this tragedy. if you got pulled over for owi, what happens? >> they write you a traffic ticket. >> reporter: but you don't lose your license? >> no. >> reporter: you don't lose your car? >> no. >> reporter: and you don't go to prison? >> no. you don't have to show up in court to answer the ticket. julie is the coordinator for the policy project. despite little action in the state legislature progess is happening town after town through volunteer programs like police saturation patrols. >> these are task forces. they let the public know when they are going to be out on the
8:19 am
road. >> reporter: it's a show of force? >> a show of force but they can pull over anyone that breaks any traffic law. >> reporter: in a state that also prohibits police sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols have found success. since brown county launched the federally funded program in 2011 year over year ruckeductions. >> more and more people are adopting things and come down to the communities lead the way and the leaders in madison will ends up following them. >> reporter: but tim carpenter, in the state legislature for 31 years, says any change to the constant drinking and driving laws will take some more time. give me the reality check. is anything ever going to change? >> to be honest, i don't see meaningful legislation passed this session for drinking and driving and probably in 2018. >> reporter: we are seeing nothing for at least three years? >> at least. >> reporter: a new bill was
8:20 am
introduced this week but it's considered a compromise bill because even if it passes, it would only revoke a person's driver's license after five go d dui. >> people are driving with eight, nine, ten duis and including the man who killed the jenkins daughter. >> thank you, pete. a shark attack turns into a moment of celebration for a swimmer. how one deadly foe stopped another. we will plain coming up on "cbs this morning." relief. nothing is proven stronger on aches and pains than advil. not tylenol. not aleve. nothing. relief doesn't get any better than this. advil.

8:35 am
>> as usual, the detectives looked at the family, the people closest to the victims. >> reporter: they found that the sachs also had two older sons, miles, 21, and ashton, 19. but they lived over a thousand miles away, so detectives started looking for suspects. andrew sachs had made a lot of money in real estate mostly amassing what some reports suggest is 80 million dollar fortune but she had sharp elbows and she made some enemies. >> too aggressive? >> a shark? >> piranha. >> right after the murder, we thought it was a bad business deal. she had a lot of people she owed money to and she was worried about them. >> reporter: those kinds of leads gave detectives plenty to work with. and then there was the crime scene itself. we are here at a gun range in los angeles where we constructed a mock-up of part of the sachs' bedroom to demonstrate how close the shooter was to the victims.
