President Donald Trump celebrated Republican Rep. Greg Gianforte during a rally in Missoula, Montana, on Thursday, cheering the lawmaker as a “tough cookie” over his assault of a reporter last year. “Any guy that can do a body slam, he’s my kind of guy,” Trump said at the event as supporters cheered him on. “I had heard that he body-slammed a reporter ... and he was way up, and I said, ‘Oh, this is terrible, he’s going to lose the election.’ Then I said, ‘I know Montana pretty well,’ and I said I think it might help him.
In the second and final debate of a contentious Texas U.S. Senate campaign, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, used his closing argument to discuss the importance of protecting Americans who had pre-existing health conditions. “On Obamacare, I want to repeal Obamacare, reduce premiums, protect pre-existing conditions and expand access,” said Cruz. This is an interesting position for Cruz, who spent much of his first term in the Senate railing against Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which guarantees protections for those with pre-existing conditions. In 2013, Cruz engineered a 16-day shutdown of the government in an effort to defund the program.
