Gianforte Set Up or Just a Trump Loving Fool?

Gianforte Set Up or Just a Trump Loving Fool?

And Montana's use of early voting meant that almost half of the ballots in Thursday's special election had been cast before Gianforte allegedly grabbed a reporter by the neck and slammed him to the ground and then began punching him.

Final results show the county was in favor of Cut Bank Democratic candidate Rob Quist, who earned a 14-point win in the Republican candidate's backyard. "President Trump won the state by 20 points, so there was room for improvement, absolutely".

Gianforte's campaign issued a statement Wednesday blaming the incident on Jacobs. "Ben Jacobs. I also want to apologize [to] the Fox News team that was there, and I'm sorry to each one of you that we had to go through this", Gianforte said.

And instead of Trump, who was embraced by Gianforte and rarely mentioned by Quist in a state where the president remains popular, Republicans said the key national figure in the race was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

"I say that because the Democratic agenda at this moment is to oppose everything that Trump does, and yet this candidate, this Republican, won", he continued. Last night I made a mistake and I took an action that I can't take back and I'm not proud of what happened.

Huawei launches Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus with dual camera

The last-minute controversy unnerved Republicans, who also faced close calls this year in the traditionally Republican congressional districts in Kansas and Georgia. The Republican candidate was cited with a misdemeanor assault on the eve of the election.

Voters are deciding in the special election whether Republican Greg Gianforte or Democrat Rob Quist will fill the U.S. House seat left vacant when Ryan Zinke resigned to join President Donald Trump's Cabinet as secretary of the Interior Department. The author of the Fox News account later clarified that Gianforte had one hand on each side of Jacobs's neck, a detail that did not alter her previous retelling. Here's the backstory: Jacobs, who has a reputation as an aggressive reporter, had been asking Gianforte about the House of Representatives' health care legislation, but Gianforte said he wanted to wait to see how the Congressional Budget Office assessed the plan.

First, did Donald Trump cause candidate Greg Gianforte to body-slam Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs during an interview?

It had been unclear if Gianforte's assault charge would impact the race.

Three Montana newspapers withdrew support for Gianforte on the day of the election because of the incident, but it's not clear what effect the incident had on the vote. He canceled. Gianforte, like other conservatives, are under attack by the mainstream media.

House intel Democrat wants review of Kushner's clearance
Kushner has not yet been charged with any wrongdoing, and it is still unclear what was discussed between Kushner and the Russians. Kushner's attorney, Jamie Gorelick, said Kushner did not remember any calls with Kislyak between April and November.

Speaker Ryan is right - a physical response is never warranted and Montana's next US representative could learn a lot about acting like a statesman from Kevin Cramer. The fact that the congressman-elect now faces a misdemeanor assault charge should at least give pause to his new constituents. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Even with the apology, the incident has nevertheless created a burden for Gianforte - and the state he will represent in Congress.

Libertarian Mark Wicks was the third candidate in the race.
