7:02 am
a shot good morning, america. all kinds of races going on this wednesday morning. we got alexander hamilton versus susan b. anthony for the $10 bill. that could come today. also coming off a decisive night in the race for the white house. >> dramatic as new yorkers cast their votes. both donald trump and hillary clinton walking away with double digit wins. >> a crushing blow to bernie sanders right there. 16-point win and donald trump with a huge win over ted cruz and john kasich right there. a clean sweep, nearly a clean sweep of new york's big pile of delegates. >> as you can imagine our team is covering every angle. abc's tom llamas is starting us off at trump headquarters in new york. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. donald trump said he was only going to celebrate for two hours and then it was back to work. quite a scene here last night at trump tower as you're about to see. this as ted cruz is now tangling
7:03 am
new york new york >> reporter: overnight, with sinatra blasting, his children cheering hen wife melania by his side, donald trump put his touch on the new york victory. >> we're going to end at a very high level and get a lot more delegates than anybody projected even in their wildest imaginations. >> the gop front-runner thanking his campaign in the midst of a staff shake-up. new leadership and new hires coming in to help trump secure the nomination. >> i really want to thank my team, my team has been amazing and, you know, it's actually a team of unity. it's evolving but people don't understand that. >> reporter: and in trump's brief speech he found time to single out his closest rival. >> nobody should take delegates and claim victory unless they get those delegates with voters and voting. >> reporter: the billionaire trying to make the case it's time for senator ted cruz to step aside.
7:04 am
television, senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated. >> reporter: but cruz says he's staying in the race until the convention and now losing his patience with people who question his delegate roundups in some states. >> the only people asking this question are the hard-core donald trump supporters. >> why do you do this every dingell time? no, you got to stop. every time i have you on the air and i ask a legitimate question you try to throw this in my face. i'm getting sick of it. >> getting into it with conservative talk show host -- >> sean, can i answer your question without being interrupted. >> go ahead. >> this notion of voter-less election, it is nonsense. they are making it up. >> reporter: cruz tearing into the trump campaign. >> i cannot help that the donald trump campaign does not seem capable of running a lemonade stand. if you lose don't cry about it. >> reporter: not happy with that line of questioning, already setting his sights on one of the
7:05 am
pennsylvania, one of the states voting next tuesday. george. >> okay, tom, thanks very much. to the democrats, hillary clinton scored close to a knockout blow over bernie sanders in new york so she's turning her focus to november with tough words are to the gop. cecilia vega here with the latest. >> reporter: good morning to you. as you said it was a serious blow to sanders with this win, hillary clinton calling this home turf victory personal. i was in the room for that victory speech. she is now laser focused on the general election and taking on the republicans. new york >> reporter: this morning hillary clinton truly in an empire state of mind. >> today you proved once again there's no place like home. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: celebrating a new york grand slam in her adopted home state, a win that pushes the democratic nomination nearly out of bernie sanders' reach and has clinton feeling confident about her chances ahead. >> the race for the democratic
7:06 am
stretch and victory is in sight. >> reporter: after a heated battle here, clinton now extending an olive branch to some -- iffers. >> and to all the people who supported senator sanders i believe there is much more that you nights us than divides us. >> reporter: while taking shots at others. >> donald trump and ted cruz -- [ booing ] -- are pushing a vision for america that's divisive and, frankly, dangerous. >> reporter: sanders still vowing to stay in the race and he has already moved on to the next big battle. >> thank you. >> reporter: this morning, sanders is back home in vermont taking a day off the trail after that bruising new york loss. >> next week we will be competing in pennsylvania, connecticut, rhode island,
7:07 am
look forward to winning a number of those states. >> reporter: sanders says he is not going anywhere but overnight one of his advisers reportedly said that after next week's votes, the team will assess where they are. they do, though, concede he has to win most of the states ahead but there is no question about it, robin, when it comes to delegates, clinton has the mathematical advantage right now that will be nearly impossible to beat. >> all right, cecilia, you're talking about delegates. let's go to abc's jon karl where the delegate race stands right now. start off with republicans. >> reporter: a huge win in new york for donald trump, especially when it comes to delegates. he's won so far 89 of new york delegates. john kasich only 3. ted cruz entirely shut out. to give you ang idea of how sweeping it was, donald trump won all of the congressional districts in the entire state of new york except for one, the one that he lost is right there, the one that includes trump tower. john kasich has won that
7:08 am
the 12th by 70 votes so where does it stand now overall? trump is closing in on the magic number he needs to clinch the nomination. he needs just 392 more. about 58% of the delegates going forward, ted cruz is now mathematically eliminated from clinching before the convention just like john kasich. in terms of the road ahead, the next states next week, a week from today, again, more states in the northeast, the biggest prize of all, pennsylvania, by the way, that will be an organizational challenge for ted cruz -- for donald trump because only 17 of the delegates in pennsylvania go to the winner, the rest are the actual delegates that run under their own names. >> all right, jon, thank you very much. over now to george. >> okay, i'm here with matthew dowd and cecilia vega, as well. let's start out with the democrats, matt dowd. it looks like when you saw that interesting concession cecilia just reported from the sanders team that next week it's more or less do or die from them. just in time for hillary clinton because the way the race has been going here in new york was
7:09 am
>> yeah, her overall numbers have declined both in the primary and general election in the course of this. i actually think sanders, he's back home today. i think he needs to reassess and decide where to go from here fundamentally because the math is a problem. to give a little homage or paraphrase aaron burr hamilton, he needs to ask himself, the world is wide enough for hillary and me and i think that's what he needs to decide. he can stay but does he need to get into a duel with her >> that's what they're bracing for at the clinton campaign. looking ahead to trump and cruz but they know they have to fix her promise on honesty and trustworthiness. >> and especially if sanders doesn't go away. i think you'll hear the clinton campaign behind closed doors, you will hear democratic party leaders say, bernie sanders, it's time for you to step aside because these attacks you're hitting hillary clinton with will start to hurt her. as she clearly starts to pivot focused on trump and ted cruz.
7:10 am
side, boy, such a tough night for ted cruz. even though he's been gaining the delegates he's been getting crushed by the voters. the question is where does he find a win? >> he's probably going to get crushed again next week. those states coming forward a poll that just came out in connecticut, another one next tuesday, trump's got a huge lead there. he's had a lead in pennsylvania. but, again, that pennsylvania state is interesting because 54 of the delegates are elected under their own name so you vote for presidential candidate but you're also voting for individual delegates. >> but, matthew dowd, it looks like we're getting to the point where all donald trump has to do is actually get close because he's got that powerful argument that a lot of republican voters agree with, whoever has the most states and the most voters and the most delegates in the convention should get the nomination. >> i think this is a big turning point in the race. he won with such an overwhelming victory and basically cleared up almost every single delegate and he'll consistently win and now ted cruz has lost his only argument which he was the only one that had the bhat on his side.
7:11 am
getting 1,237 by june 7th as john kasich does at this point and that is zero. >> there's still a real chance that trump will not clinch before the convention, still an uphill battle. >> if he gets 1150, i think he side. wants to run against? >> trump. no doubt, trump, they're ready? thank you all very much and hillary clinton will be here live answering your questions for our coffee with the candidates town hall. back to robin. that severe weather in the heartland. tornadoes touching down overnight and now flash flood alerts across four states in the south. abc's rob marciano is here and has the latest. >> good morning. those are the two areas of concern, more in the way of rain across the flood zone and more of this out of la don'tdladdonia, missouri. no harm, no foul there but definitely harm north of texas. this drone video shot, also
7:12 am
sill the cypress river has yet to recede. big-time storms coming through dallas and that convective mass heading towards dallas and will probably stir up more in the way of rain. northeast has its problems in the way of dry air. robin. >> all right, thank you, rob. we move overseas to breaking news. another earthquake has hit the coast of ecuador this morning. as the country races to find survivors from saturday's deadly quake. abc's linzie janis is near the epi epicenter where they're still feeling aftershocks. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: there's a dramatic scene unfolding behind me. these rescuers say they think they heard the voice of a man underneath the rubble shouting down into a hole saying do you hear me? they say they also hear what sounds like a coin being tapped against something metal. this morning, searchers digging through the rubble with at least 200 people still missing.

of protection against him. more hurdles for former heisman trophy winner johnny manziel. >> if i could go back and probably give a younger me some advice -- >> reporter: nike, the quarterback's biggest sponsor confirms it dropped the free agent's contract after the football season ended. this comes just one day after these photos emerged of a disheveled looking manziel partying at coachella. this is nfl power agent drew rosenhaus, officially cut ties with him on tuesday. rosenhaus said he would take the 23-year-old back if he entered treatment within five days. those five days are now up. >> at this point i don't have a choice because this situation is spiraling downward and i'm not going to be a part of a young man destroying his life. it's just not going to happen on my watch. >> reporter: the former cleveland brown spent ten weeks in rehab after his rookie nfl season making more headlines for his tumultuous relationship and hard partying ways than his
7:16 am
on thursday, a grand jury is expected to consider whether or not to charge manziel with attacking his ex-girlfriend colleen crowley in january allegedly hitting her so hard she temporarily lost hearing in one ear. manziel tells abc news, "i'm hoping to take care of the issues in front of me right now so i can focus on what i have to do if i want to play in 2016. i also continue to be thankful to those who really know me and support me." manziel and his friends are accused of causing more than $30,000 worth of damage at a home they rented for a two-day party in l.a. last week. this week the 2014 first round draft pick faces a charge for domestic violence which carries a sentence of more than a year in jail. his dad said if they can't get him help he won't live to see his 24th birthday. >> amy has the other top developing stories starting with the water crisis in flint in the first criminal charges now being announced today in connection with the lead contaminated water there in flint.

7:32 am
showing a person in full tactical gear roaming the halls. abc's kayna whitworth is in texas with the latest. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: robin, good morning. in that video you see a person walking around this church for 30 minutes before police say missy bevers was killed. now, they say that that person's manner itches and stride are unique and hoping someone recognizes them. this morning, the search is on for the person seen in this chilling surveillance video believed to be responsible for the death of fitness instructor missy bevers. police releasing this new surveillance video overnight showing the suspect dressed in s.w.a.t. gear roaming through the hallways and opening the doors of the texas church where the mother of three was found. >> my wife as a -- she was a great woman, a great wife, a great mother. a great friend. >> reporter: bevers' husband emotional at a vigil remembering his wife overnight but stoic when asking the public for help
7:33 am
>> i ask everybody out there to review the video, the person has a very distinct walk, there's just a very distinct mannerism about this person that should be a very apparent to somebody. >> reporter: former fbi agent and abc news consultant brad garrett agrees. >> the way the person walks, it's a rather wide stance feet go out as the person walks along, somewhat unique. somebody may recognize that. >> reporter: police aren't releasing details of the crime saying they're not speculateing on prevailing theories for possible motives but garrett says based on the walk or mannerisms the person in the video is likely a man who perhaps recently purchased or stole that s.w.a.t. uniform. >> the primary crime is burglary, the secondary crime ultimately becomes murder because she interrupted his theft. >> bevers' husband hoping details like this will help find a break in the case.
7:34 am
unclear if the person in that video is a man or a woman and right now they're checking other cameras in the area for any clues. george. >> boy, such a scary mystery. thanks very much. we will get the latest on blake shelton scoring a victory in his defamation case against "in touch" which posted a story abc's eva pilgrim is here with the story, good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, blake shelton hasn't been shy making comments about having a drink but he says that doesn't mean he's an alcoholic or that a magazine can write whatever they want about him either. this morning, blake shelton is celebrating because a judge sided with him in a first ruling. blake shelton's seeing the light in a big victory for the country star overnight. a california judge deciding not to throw out his multimillion dollar defamation lawsuit
7:35 am
it ran this cover in september which the 39-year-old megastar allegations falsely suggests among other things that he is in rehab and that a drinking problem helped destroy his marriage to fellow country singer miranda lambert. >> it is a huge win for blake and his attorney and it's a very difficult hurdle to get over in the court of law in california. >> reporter: the judge saying it appears to be undisputed that "in touch" ran the headline without believing that shelton had actually entered rehab. even citing the sworn statement of the magazine's editorial director, it most certainly was not my intention to convey in the headline or the article that mr. shelton had actually entered rehab. the more i drink the more i drink >> reporter: but the publishing giant arguing that the grammy nominated singer who has written songs like this one called "the more i drink" has staked his reputation on heavy drinking citing as many tweets where he jokes about it like this one "i'm still so drunk right now i
7:36 am
why is wednesday spelled like that? the magazine also highlighting this red carpet interview with cnn in 2011. >> and my heart and soul is, you know, being a redneck and drinking and being stupid. >> shelton firing back, drinking or comments about drinking is part of my shtick with my fans. part of my act, part of my performance, but in no way indicates that i have an actual problem with alcohol. >> there's a big line in the sand between a partying country singer and somebody who needs to go to rehab. >> reporter: now, regarding the case we reached out to "in touch" and told us no comment, a spokes pane for shelton telling us overnight "in touch" weekly ran a false story knowingly and blake is pleased the judge ruled his lawsuit can move forward. >> okay, eva, thanks. let's talk to dan abrams about this. this is an important step for blake shelton here but far from the end of the road. >> that's right. a big win for him but interesting legal argument that
7:37 am
effectively saying he can't be defamed. how could we possibly have defamed him. he is on twitter, he's talking about his drinking. he's singing about his drinking. so all we said is he's going to rehab. that's a good thing, not a bad thing. defamation is supposed to be "in touch" argues something negative about the person. something that holds them in disrepute. this doesn't. >> hearing that it seems to have echoes of what we heard from gawker in that hulk hogan case if there is a similarity in the types of defenses, right? in both cases you're hearing gawker and "in touch" -- it's similar issues this them saying the celebrity brought this upon himself. but very different kinds of legal cases. in the gawker case you're talking about invasion of privacy. here you're talking about libel and defamation. very different. >> the legal bar still very high for blake shelton. >> that's right but he's overcome the big one, it's getting over and into trial is the hardest thing very often,
7:38 am
juries tend to go very sympathetic to people like shelton in situations like this. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. coming up, the reality tv discovery. a real-life castaway. life. the battle over who gets to be on the $10 bill. how the broadway show "hamilton" may be playing a role this morning. >> come on back. what if there was another way to look at relapsing multiple sclerosis?

8:33 am
>> not a one size fits all to beauty anymore. individuality is key and we have always perpetuated that here. this notion that you should really be proud of who you are every day. >> and we are proud of them. emily weiss of glossier and maddy maxs pmaxey here with rebecca minkoff. oh, goodness, okay, so, emily, you are online but you have these pop-up stores because you like to connect with people, don't you? >> yes, i do. it's really important for us as a digitally native beauty company to connect with our customers in real life and a lot of beauty stores can be overwhelming, a little crowded, you know, perhaps a little messy and for us we really wanted to create an offline experience where girls can come together and hang out and shares tips with each other and get to know one another in addition to trying on our products. >> i love this mini pop-up store we have here. just to give an example.
8:34 am
more to you about it. come on now. i mean your fashion is cutting edge and we have some wonderful models here. grace is wearing -- tell us about what she's wearing. >> absolutely. grace is wearing a series of garments that we designed that respond to sunlight and they're all stem concepts so we were trying to take this new twist on wearable tech of using new tears but also using programming language languages to make the graphics. >> we saw this in the piece. come on up, zac. the -- >> kelvin in a heated jacket. i thought you should be able to wear one of rebecca minkoff's beautiful leather jackets and how to keep you warm. i know by now that sort of thing is totally possible. >> we saw this, militia, we saw this on lupita. tell us about that creation. >> absolutely. so this project, it's been such a pleasure to work with a team

8:36 am
the morning and most of us are going to work or going to school and so we really wanted to create a very modern company that celebrates beauty in real life and for us what that means is creating a range of products that live with you, not on you, really universal, really easy and really meant to make you look your best and not try and become someone else and for us, it's been really exciting and made the decision sort of easy to be mission driven in that way. >> i'm looking -- i know you are too, rebecca, going -- because you came to new york at 18 and said i'm going to take it by storm and you have absolutely done that but it's about taking risk and you said you have to know what type of risk to take, perhaps. >> i think you have to be smart about the risks you're taking. i think as an entrepreneur it's built into that in itself you have to be a risk taker but we wouldn't be here today if i had not talked to my customer, that was a risk believe it or not or talking to influencers or using technology to be more in touch with my consumers.

the brand to what it is today. >> how do you break out? there's so much out there in fashion and design. how do you make your mark? >> i think it's about finding the white space within the white space and evolving and being in touch with your consumer and using technology like emily and maddy have done to talk to her more. >> how would you both talk to people who are watching, some young people who want to do what you're doing or have their dream. >> i would say stay curious, keep asking questions and getting all the skills you can. regardless of whether things succeed or fail, if you've really valuable. >> i hike that. ask questions. for you, emily. >> i would echo maddy and say know what you don't know. for us that was a lot and that can be a humbling realization but i think it really gives you an opportunity to learn from people who, you know, who have been there and done that and be open-minded. t-shirt. know what you don't know. i can work with you both on that. >> let's do it. >> thank you and, rebecca,
