hospital. they're still looking for a suspect who fled on foot. according to the gunman archives there have been over 400 mass shootings this year. earlier this week, 50% increase in homicides and roughly 36% increase in aggravated assaults. it's the latest incident in a summer of record gun violence. these numbers overall indicating a massive spike in violent crime that shows no sign of slowing down. >> all right, zachary, thank you. we move to our other top story, this is the senate working to pass the inflation reduction act which includes major changes in health care and a big investment in green energy. abc's maryalice parks is on capitol hill with more. maryalice, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning. senators here debating and voting all through the night. senate democrats clearly eager to get this bil to the president's desk as soon as possible. overnight, senate democrats taking a major step forward, now on the verge of passing their historic climate, health care
and tax bill. >> this is one of the most comprehensive and impactful bills congress has seen in decades. >> reporter: vice president kamala harris stepping in as a tie-breaking vote to advance the bill. >> on this vote, the yeas are 50, the nays are 50. the senate being equally divided, the vice president votes in the affirmative, and the motion to proceed is agreed to. >> reporter: the legislation would make the single biggest investment in clean energy in the nation's history, allow medicare to negotiate some prescription drug prices, set a $2,000 annual cap on drug costs for seniors. and lock in a minimum corporate tax rate of 15%. using special senate budget rules senate democrats can pass the bill with a simple majority. but they have no votes to spare. >> this amendment is simple, expand to include vision, dental to our seniors. >> reporter: senator sanders offering last-minute changes to expand medicare benefits.
but having no luck. the final deal was the fragile result of months of negotiations among democrats. the last holdout, arizona senator kyrsten sinema finally coming on board. with only three months until the midterms, democrats now rushing to get the bill to the president's desk. republicans unsuccessfully offering dozens of amendments of their own. united in their opposition. not wanting corporate tax hikes. >> democrats wants to hundreds of billions of dollars in reckless spending. >> reporter: now senate democrats i spoke to are clearly excited about this bill even though there were big compromises in the end. they say this gives them something to talk to voters about, to point to. senator warren said she wanted much more in terms of health care and child care funding. but it was time for democrats to book this win. whit. >> that's moving forward, but maryalice, we heard from the white house that president biden has tested negative for covid-19 again, what more are you learning about his condition?
>> reporter: yeah, whit. just moments ago we saw the president emerging from the white house, ending his isolation. hi's headed back to delaware, to the beach actually, remember this was the president's second stint in isolation after his so-called rebound covid case, the president's doctor said he had been feeling well, he had a cough, but he was working from the white house residence this entire time. whit. >> maryalice, thank you. linsey? >> thanks, whit. now to donald trump speaking to conservative voters at cpac where a poll showing strong support for a 2024 run. abc's zohreen shah is in washington. good morning, zohreen. >> reporter: fworn good morning, linsey. it's a conference for conservatives, but ron desants wasn't there. mike pence wasn't either, and nikki haley nowhere to be seen. cpac focused solely on donald trump. trump's newest stars taking center stage at cpac, setting the tone for the midterms and the party's future.
>> we drove a stake through the heart of the mccain machine. >> reporter: fresh off her primary win in arizona, the trump-backed gubernatorial candidate kari lake. ramping up the crowd over the former president. trump also mocking the january 6th hearings. >> if they used the same energy to go and make our country great it would be an incredible thing. i don't know if they could do that. >> reporter: in a more bizarre moment, a man portraying a january 6th defendant dressed up in a prisoner's suit crying in a fake jail cell while marjorie taylor greene prayed by his side. notably absent republicans who once stood by trump's side including 2024 candidate ron desantis, mike pence, mike pompeo, and nikki haley. >> i want trump back in there in 2024. these are my people. >> reporter: political watchers
say that trump's influence over the republican party is likely to loom large at least throughout the next presidential election cycle. >> i think the other candidates are expecting trump to fade. but the establishment has expected him to fade for years. and he hasn't yet. but if they see that trump is still extremely strong i don't think some of them will stay in the race very long. >> reporter: some republican voters surveyed said they would be open to another candidate. so there were two straw polls at cpac. one with trump and one without. the one without governor desantis, leading with 65% of the vote. >> i would probably end up going with desantis. i think a younger person would be better. i think trump has too much controversy htied to him. >> reporter: in the poll with trump he got 69% of the vote, that's a 10% increase from the same cpac poll just earlier this year. and it highlights the tight grip he has on the party.
ja janai? >> all right, zohreen. we'll stay in washington and bring in rick klein and ask him about that. trump at cpac last night, as zohreen said, rumored 2024 other candidates weren't there, this came after the president he endorsed won key primaries. what if anything does this signal for republicans moving forward? >> so striking to see these trump-backed and in many cases election-denying candidates winning up and down the ballot in battleground states. including just this past week in arizona and michigan. a congressman lost his re-election race in the primary. we'll have major tests coming up in a couple of day now, wisconsin, another place you have trump on one side and pence on the other side. pence lost round one. but what's going to be interesting now is to see how this really translates into the fall, because trump has shown an ability to elevate people that the voters like in these states, the maga movement is extremely strong inside republican primary politics. that's not the same in the
general election. as we turn to the fall, more scrutiny on some of the people that trump selected and boosted. >> in the meantime, looking at the democrats, do you think they're feeling better with chances of winning the midterms. >> the hope among democrats is that they can start talking about what they've done and what they've not done. their hope is a major legislative package on key priorities in health care, environment, taxes is one more thing to bring to voters. but i got to say it's about the economy. a poll coming out later this morning, how voters are viewing the economy, and until or unless that really changes democrats are going to have a hard time making an affirmative case to voters. the best thing is some of the candidates that are winning republican primaries, that might be their best shot to hold on to the senate in particular. >> so many americans feeling the pinch and focused on the economy. rick klein, thank you so much
for being with us this morning. just a reminder to tune into "this week" later this morning as senate democrats seek to pass their climate and tax bill. george stephanopoulos will go one-on-one with democratic senator chris coons and gop senator mike rounds. plus, bill richardson. they'll discuss prisoner swap negotiations with russia to release brittney griner and paul wh w w whelan. that's all coming up on "this week" right her on abc. one of the largest employers in the state of indiana is speaking out. over the state's new law restricting access to most abortions. eli lilly says the new restrictions on abortion could make it difficult to recruit talent around the world. the drugmaker says that means now plans on growing the company's business outside of indiana which could be a very costly move for that state. now to severe weather, the area in eastern kentucky where president biden could be touring tomorrow is bracing for more heavy rain. danielle breezy has the very latest. danielle, good morning.
>> reporter: whit, it's not just kentucky that's dealing with flooding rains, death valley although known to be dry picked up a ton of rain on friday. that led to big problems. take a look. this morning, we're hearing harrowing tales from death valley national park in california. after that dangerous flash flooding that was triggered by record rainfall, the park remains closed. >> you can couldn't drive anywhere for sure. it was difficult to walk anywhere as well. >> reporter: in just a few hours, the park saw more than 75% of its annual rainfall. during its second wettest day in recorded history. the floods burying around 60 vehicles under feet of debris and stranding about a thousand park visitors with no way in or out. >> it sounded like the world was ending. rushing water everywhere in a place that's usually bone-dry. it was pretty incredible. >> reporter: john from arizona was among those stranded, now safely out of the park. emergency crews working hard to rescue the stranded. making progress, with hundreds
able to return home. and this morning, eastern kentucky bracing for more rain. after deadly flooding ravaged the area just a week ago. now survivors dealing with washed out roads, destroyed homes and businesses and scarce resources, as the threat of more heavy rain and flash flooding looms. president biden planning to visit the region monday to meet with families and survey recovery efforts. unfortunately, eastern kentucky under the threat again for flooding as flood watches are posted. we're going to have a lot more on that coming up. janai. >> danielle, thank you. mexico, where a fourth muslim man was shot to death. now authorities are investigating whether these murders are all linked. abc's alex presha joins us live. alex, three of those murders happened in just a matter of days. >> reporter: that's right, janai. today, albuquerque police are investigating a horrible murder,
a young man from south asia who's muslim shot to death. they haven't released his name, but there's concern in this community because he's now the third muslim man in coalbuquerq killed in the last two weeks. law enforcement investigating whether this latest murder is connected to the others. if the heinous act were carried out because the victims were muslim. on july 26th, 41-year-old aftab hussain was shot and 41-year-old aftabhussein and then back in november a fourth man, was pkiln with his brother. the president of the islamic center for new mexico telling abc news they haven't gone through anything like this. the fbi now assisting albuquerque pd with this investigation. new mexico's governor's sending additional police to the area and in a statement, anger and saddened this happened. linsey, going forward, investigators are going to be relying on the public even offering a cash reward to help bring the person or people
responsible for these heinous murders to justice. linsey. >> hoping someone in the public knows something and comes forward. the u.s. coast guard and border patrol agents were right there there at the shoreline when a boat arrived with haitian migrants at the florida keys. more than a hundred people jumped into water and made it to shore, they're being held in a border patrol detention center. the ones that stayed on the boat will likely be sent back to haiti. there are reports that russia could be preparing to launch a new offensive in ukraine. as concerns grow over damage at nuclear power plant. abc's britt clennett is in kyiv with the latest. britt, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. that's right. fears looming here in ukraine of nuclear leakage from europe's largest power plant. as fighting at the southern
plant rages on. the u.n. nuclear watchdog warning of a nuclear disaster. they're concerned about reports of shelling there. as of now it's important to note there's no increase of radiation levels at the plant. though they also warn it may be harder to monitor any potential leakage because of damage to senses. the head telling abc news that if russia were to disconnect nuclear power from the ukrainian grid, that would cut off a large supply of energy to the country and this would also have disastrous consequences, so the stakes here are very high. they took control of that plant in march. ukrainian staff is still running the site but kyiv accuses russia of terror tactics. using the plant as essentially a military base, as russian forces push on in the south trying to control the black sea. a ship though entering odesa for the first time since russia's invasion. the vessel will be loaded with
grain and travel to turkey. so this really is a positive sign the deal to release that grain trapped by that russian blockade is working. giving a glimmer of hope among a global food crisis. janai. >> a little bit of a glimmer of hope. britt, thank you. back here at home now to. ale getting drawn into the tensions rising among china, the u.s. and taiwan. abc's economic correspondent deirdre bolton with more. this comes at a delicate time for all involved. >> reporter: apple is in the middle of this ongoing conflict between china and taiwan. the tech giant telling its suppliers in taiwan for items being sent to china that have to follow customs rule to label their products being made in china, taiwan or chinese taipei. the move coming at as you said a very tricky time, just days
