2 1/2 miles through both deep water and steep climbs. the biggest concern is a pinch point in the cave that is just 15 inches across. in that area the boys have toiv der toit through andea a small patch of dry land before going back down into the water. cbs news obtained these images from inside the rescue operation. showing the sheer scale of this effort. rescuers charging through the flooded cave but also exhausted and sleeping on the rocky floor. an international army formed to first find and then save the lives of these 12 young boys and their coach. now, the head of the rescue mission says that their rescue plan is based on bringing four people out each day. and that is partly because it takes about 20 hours for them to reset all of the oxygen tanks inside the cave that they need during these rescues. so it's not clear if the remaining five people inside will get out today.

3:30 am
>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." president trump announced his nomination of judge brett kavanaugh to be the 114th justice of the united states supreme court. if confirmed by the senate, kavanaugh, who once clerked for justice anthony kennedy, will take kennedy's seat as he retires. here was the president on judge kavanau kavanaugh. >> throughout legal circles he is considered a judge's judge, a true thought leader among his peers. he is a brilliant jurist with a clear and effective writing style universally regarded as legal mind ofe. >> kanaugh's a judge on the u.s. circuit court of appeals in
3:31 am
washington, d.c. he is 53 years old, a graduate of yale law, a roman catholic. he is married with two daughters. here was judge kavanaugh just a short time ago. >> my judicial philosophy is straightforward. a judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law. a judge must interpret statutes as written. and a judge must interpret the constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent. >> our chief legal correspondent jan crawford now has more on the nomination of judge brett kavanaugh to the supreme court. >> i brett m. kavanaugh -- >> reporter: in his 13 years as a federal appeals court judge brett kavanaugh has earned a reputation as an intellectual force with a clear conservative judicial philosophy. >> read the text of the constitution as written mindful of history and tradition. don't make up new constitutional rights that are not in the
3:32 am
constitution. >> reporter: the 53-year-old father of two grew up just outside washington with his elite academic credentials he is a favorite of the conservative legal establishment. before becoming a judge he worked for independent counsel ken starr and served in the george w. bush white house. and for three years senate democrats blocked his appellate court nomination. in speeches kavanaugh has talked about how his experience shaped him as a judge. >> it also helps white house experience i think, and history shows and executive branch experience, when judges need to show some fortitude and backbone in those cases where the independent judiciary has to stand up to the mystique of the presidency and the eti ch. is a president who is going to go bold. i mean, he is willing to fight for someone that is going to be a true conservative intellectual force on the supreme court. i mean, judge kavanaugh is very
3:33 am
highly regarded on the prestigious d.c. circuit. he's well liked. and he's got a record. >> he's been tested in some of these -- the process before, the questionings at least. >> and that's very important to the conservative legal establishment and to president trump because sometimes republicans have been disappointed by the justices that they put on the supreme court. they get to washington and have a tendency sometimes to drift to the left. but judge kavanaugh has that record and he has that experience and he is someone who is kind of of an intellectual powerhouse, who can lead the conservative movement and solidify that supreme court with five conservative justices for a generation. this is something republican presidents have tried to do for 40 years and failed. and president trump may be able to do that with this nomination. >> margaret, the politicking now >> it does.. not only to win the fight on the hill for confirmation, which will be a bit of a fight as jan just laid out. in part because judge kavanaugh has been around washington for
3:34 am
so long. there is such a paper trail. and among some of the things on his resume are some controversial associations. he was involved with the 2000 recount of -- remember that election and the divisiveness that result add round that. also he helped independent counsel ken starr's investigation of president clinton. he has been called everything from a political foot soldier by chuck schumer to a political operative. by the late senator ted kennedy. so he is someone who represents very much the republican political establishment. why does that matter? because president trump campaigned on overturning that. but you know why it's a win they think at the white house is because this is an incredibly divided republican party. it's at war with itself. and as they hit the campaign trail in november to win over some of those seats, this is something that really unifies a divided republican party. they can say look at what the president has delivered, not just with two supreme court
3:35 am
justices but also 29 federal court judges that they have pushed through what is really in many ways a stalled congress. >> been a huge focus of this president's term, which is why it will be a huge focus of the mid-terms as both sides try to rally, democrats against and republicans for. tell us about the room where this took place and what happened inside. >> this is not really a surprise president trump chose this but the president has made very clear he doesn't go only from what's on paper. he likes to gauge a feel for a person and chemistry. and we saw that with judge kavanaugh tonight as he stood at the podium and was surrounded by his family, his two young daughters. he looked out into the audience and saw his parents sitting next to first lady melania trump. even during his speech he gave a high five to his youngest daughter and talked about his other daughter's softball championship win.
3:36 am
and so we're able to see judge kavanaugh not only for his credentials and his pedigree, his academic and professional record but also as a family man. and we know that is something that president trump values. so this was a tremendous night for him. now the white house has the real work to do launching that campaign to get him confirmed. >> we also saw his parents in the audience looking on, both judges, by the way. so one can only imagine what it was like for them to watch their only child be nominated for the supreme court. nancy cordes also with us now. nancy, talk about the process ahead here. it is going to be very challenging for democrats but also not necessarily a short process here given the amount of paperwork that has to be worked through. >> correct. and just to give you a sense of the timing here, it took the senate a little over two months to confirm neil gorsuch. and republicans are aiming for the same kind of timeline this
3:37 am
time around. praise already pouring in of course from congressional republicans. they're using words like exemplary and well respected and smart and fair to describe kavanaugh. and certainly it helps he's a judge here in washington, d.c. he served in the bush administration. so some of them know him personally and others looking forward to getting to know him better. in fact, i spoke to john cornyn. he is the number two senate republican from texas. earlier today. he was at the president's announcement. i talked to him about the new nominee. here's what he had to say. >> some people said his 12 years as a judge is a liability. i consider it a strength. we know this is not going to be an easy confirmation. but we know what the outcome is going to be. >> reporter: very different reaction, of course, from democrats. already a few senate democrats have announced their opposition to kavanaugh. one of them is the leader of senate democrats, chuck schumer, who tweet aid short time ago, "i
3:38 am
will oppose judge kavanaugh's nomination with everything i have and i hope a bipartisan majority will do the lilly.

3:40 am
. >> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." welcome back to the "overnight news." i'm michelle miller. president trump's trade war is already taking a toll on the u.s. dairy industry, particularly in wisconsin. new tariffs from china alone threaten about a billion dollars' worth of exports from the state. much of it cheese. dean reynolds got a taste of the controversial. >> this was milk just a few hours ago. >>reporter: at the sartori cheese plant in plymouth, wisconsin turning humble curds into parmesan, ched sxr other table favorites is a thing to behold. but these days in addition to dipping their 20-pound wheels into wine, or hand-rubbing them
3:41 am
with pepper, an unwanted ingredient is being added to their business. tariffs. >> the president is focused on helping to protect american workers and american industries and create a fair playing field. >> reporter: that's fine, says jeff schwager, president of the sartori company, but tariffs are the wrong way to reach that goal. >> i have yet to find an example where tariffs have worked. for the long-term good of the country that first imposes them. >> reporter: the president's protectionist moves have prompted u.s. trading partners to retaliate with tariffs of their own on such wisconsin exports as cranberries, apples, and harley-davidson motorcycles. american cheese is more expensive to buy now in mexico and canada. sartori's two biggest foreign markets. u.s. dairy exports totaled $5.5 billion lasthioing to go on there will look for an s down
3:42 am
alternative product without the tariffs on it. >> reporter: overproduction has already created a glut of milk on the market, driving down dairy prices and threatening some of the 130 family farms on which sartori relies. stacy limbering has 75 cows. >> this is a great time to be a dairy farmer? >> no, it's not. we don't make a lot of money. we're not really making any money at this point in time. >> reporter: the limberg farm produces about 5,000 pounds of milk every day. you can't just snap your fingers and stop that flow. these are animals after all. >> we don't know are the companies going to put a lim uc day,ow much w rorter: s ved form your point of view? >> right now yes. in hindsight, yes.
3:43 am
>> reporter: she hopes this may just be a negotiating ploy by the president. and so does jeff schwager. is this a bluff? >> i don't know that it's a bluff, but i sure hope there's a strategy behind this. >> reporter: dean reynolds, plymouth, wisconsin. environmental officials in florida are trying to head off an ecological disaster. a toxic algae bloom is choking the biggest waterway in the state and some lawmakers want the governor to declare a state of emergency. manuel bojorquez has the story from lake okeechobee. >> reporter: chris whitman's been fishing southwest florida his entire life. but the once postcard-perfect summer waters are becoming fouled by slimy and toxic green algae. >> it's not looking good for the future. i've canceled my trips the next few weeks because of this issue. i'm not on the water as much as i once was. >> reporter: it's a recurrings e oblem startshere
3:44 am
okeechobee, the aquatic lifeblood of south florida. after heavy rains the army corps of engineers released millions of gallons to relieve pressure on the lake's old earthen dam. but the water is chock full of chemicals and nutrients, much of it runoff from commercial agriculture and sprawling development. when that mix bakes in the summer sun, the algae population explodes. biologist john kasami has been collecting samples and warning about the health hazards. >> the toxins, the cyanobacteria produce are incredibly potent. they affect liver function. there's neurotoxins that they produce. so it's a suite of really toxic stuff that can kill wildlife and really impact people's health. >> if you get close enough you can see this isn't just a film. it is a thick gooey substance. and once it starts to cover up a waterway like this, it deprives g fef it.gen, essentially wildlife like manatees can choke to death.
3:45 am
but underwater the entire marine ecosystem is at risk. so too are waterside businesses. captain chris whitman says he's lost $20,000 on canceled trips already this summer. >> this is going to take a lot of work and a lot of time o'ftox it. but it is fixable. these are manmade issues and man can fix them. >> reporter: the federal government and the state have approved a $1.6 billion plan to clean and store some of the lake water, but it still has not been funded. even the private sector is stepping in, offering a $10 million reward to whoever comes up with the best plan to fix the problem here. because the algae has already been spotted in as much as 90% of lake okeechobee. the video bloggers or vloggers known as high on life are mourning the deaths of three of their members. they died on one of their adrenaline-fueled adventures when they fell from a waterfall in canada.

bulls, a tradition that dates back 700 years. the bulls have to get from their pens to the bull-fighting ring. so they open the doors and let them run through the streets. running with the bulls is seen as an act of bravery. so what does that make running with the bulls if you're blind? well, jonathan vigliotti spoke to one retired u.s. army ranger who does more than that. >> reporter: we were among those to go running with the bulls early this morning. hence this traditional red and white uniform. we came all this way to meet one man, major ivan castro, who i think it's safe to say is unlike any other person to run down this street before. a thousand-pound enemy charging the front line. writer ernest hemingway once compared pam ploenas running with the bulls to a battlefield, which means for the first time since 2006 major ivan castro, former u.s. special forces, went

3:54 am
begins. he was swallowed by the frenzy. but as others tumbled like bowling pins ivan stood his ground. >> here we go. >> reporter: he's guided through the darkness by his friends colonel fred dumar and david kaiser. >> you can hear the bulls go by like just swipe by you. and then you can hear thepl as well as like the panic. the panic and fear. people just running in fear, in total fear. and being blind, you just don't know what's coming. is that bull like right behind me or is he five feet? is he an inch? >> we've got to go. >> reporter: in the end he escaped from the half-mile sprint uninjured. >> never, ever i thought i was going to come run with the bulls. >> has this experience showed you something new about yourself? >> there's nothing impossible. >> reporter: a soldier battling back and grabbing life by the horns.
