Miss America contestant says Trump is 'the biggest issue our country faces'

Officials said they confirmed Cara Mund's claims that Carlson bullied her and others.

"We're experiencing a cultural revolution in our country with women finding the courage to stand up and have their voices heard on many issues". Or, as she said during the ceremony, "I found my love in arts and music, and that made me feel positive about myself and who I was".

Her victory Sunday night resurrected a string of successes the Empire State has had in the pageant in recent years. In addition to singing, she also writes songs and composes music and is an advocate for cancer research, according to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

"I think everyone has their own opinion and their own way of dealing with things like this". After the competition on Thursday, McPhail said she was grateful to have the chance to speak honestly onstage.

The judges were so impressed with her answer, she was awarded the $1,000 prelim onstage question scholarship.

Djokovic, del Potro need no OT to advance to US Open final
The flawless ending, of course, would be victory over Djokovic , a player he has beaten only four times in 18 meetings, on Sunday. But the good thing is I know how I have to work to be better as soon as possible because we have a lot of experience on that.


Coming in as the first runner-up is Miss Connecticut Bridget Oei, while Miss Louisiana Holli Conway came in as the night's second runner-up.

The judges narrowed the field of 51 candidates during the pageant Sunday night from Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall.

For the first time in its almost 100-year history, the revamped Miss America pageant took place tonight sans its iconic swimsuit and evening gown competitions.

This year marks the first time the broadcast will not include a swimsuit competition.

The swimsuits have been replaced by onstage interviews, which have generated attention-grabbing remarks from contestants regarding President Trump, and National Football League player protests, among other topics.

WTA calls for equal treatment of players, on-court coaching
Active chair umpires such as Ramos are generally not permitted to give interviews because of tour policies. That resulted in a second violation, meaning Osaka was awarded the first point of the sixth game.


Franklin is the first victor after the Miss America Organization announced a major change for the historic pageant.

23 former Miss Americas are now calling for Carlson and the Miss America organization board of trustees and CEO to step down.

Upon taking over at the helm of the Miss America Organization last winter following an email scandal in which former top leaders denigrated the appearance, intellect and sex lives of former Miss Americas, Carlson and Hopper set out to transform the organization, dubbing it "Miss America 2.0".

With the exception of passing the crown to Franklin, Mund was noticeably absent from most of Sunday's ceremony.
