US Republican candidate wins Montana House seat


I should not have responded in the way that I did and for that I am sorry.

Democrat Quist had hoped to turn the broad unpopularity of President Donald Trump into a win for national Democrats at the ballot box. He apologized to Jacobs by name.

Ryan's campaign spokesman congratulated Gianforte early Friday. And we've really got to say, come on, behave - behave. "Behave. That was outrageous".

Gianforte and Quist were polar opposites in the race: The Republican had electoral experience from a previous but failed run at the Montana governorship past year, whereas Quist was a novice.

"That is wrong and should not have happened".

After clinching the win, Gianforte apologized to the reporter, saying he "learned a lesson". Instead Ryan said, "I'm gonna let the people of Montana decide who they want as their representative". This is why Arkansas Republican congressmen are avoiding it as much as possible, save Sen.

Britain's Heathrow says BA still experiencing some disruptions
BA was forced to cancel Saturday flights out of London's Gatwick and Heathrow airports, leaving thousands of passengers stranded. Terry Page, 28, arrived in Fort Worth, Texas after delays and said "about 50" passengers did not have their check-in luggage.


It's also worth noting that, despite winning in last night's election, Gianforte significantly underperformed compared to how Republicans fared in Montana during the 2016 general election.

More than a third of the votes were cast by mail before it took place, an electoral official told Reuters.

This was the news: Gianforte, who went into hiding after his assault of Jacobs, apologized at his victory speech Thursday night amid a crowd that had been mocking the reporter.

Montana has just over 699,000 registered voters.

Gianforte: The last guy did the same d*** thing.

A few lawmakers did comment.

Murray ousts del Potro and his 'very manly grunt' at French
Rivals since their junior days, Murray and Del Potro have far too much respect for each other these days to be antagonists. He had some opportunities obviously to close it out, and he served a double fault in the tiebreak on one of the set points.


He is running for the state's only congressional seat in a special election set for Thursday.

Republican Greg Gianforte has not appeared in public since he was charged with misdemeanor assault late Wednesday. Or will he return at trial to his staff's excuse that Ben Jacobs made him do it by invading his space with a tape recorder?

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.

Jacobs told ABC's "Good Morning America" that he was doing his job and asking a question.

Gianforte will serve through the end of 2018.

That, as Jacobs noted Thursday, wasn't true. He was cited for misdemeanor assault. He's accused of grabbing Jacobs by the throat and throwing him to the ground in his campaign office Wednesday night.

US Will Continue to Reduce Greenhouse Emissions, Says Rex Tillerson
He also repeated his refrain that questions about President Trump's personal views on climate change are beside the point. Paris agreement was signed in 2015 to fight rising global temperature by cutting down carbon emission.


The House seat, which opened when President Trump named Rep. Ryan Zinke to lead the Interior Department, has been Republican-held for two decades in a state Trump won in November by 20 points. Gianforte canceled planned appearances on Fox News and MSNBC, while right wing radio hosts like Laura Ingraham and Rush Limbaugh made light of the incident. It was hard to determine on election night to what extent voters who cast a ballot Thursday were influenced by the altercation. "Jacobs was asked to leave", Scanlon said.
