race. early today starts right now. >> good morning. i'm frances rivera. we begin out of washington where senate majority leader mitch mcconnell's healthcare plan suffered a fatal blow. two current republicans came out against the proposal just after the president sat down with gop lawmakers at the white house. a vote on the plan was delayed after senator john mccain needed surgery for a blood clot. that delay seemed to only embolden opponents of the bill as jerry moran and utah senator, mike lee rejected the bill and put mitch mcconnell below the 50 votes needed to get it through his chamber. here's what the president said two months ago after the house passed its bill. >> we will get this passed through the senate. i feel so confident. this is a great plan and i feel it will get even better. make no mistake, this is a repeal and
