A Montana Republican running for the U.S. Congress has been charged with assaulting a reporter hours before polls were to open on Thursday for a special election that could test U.S. President Donald Trump’s political clout.
The incident on Wednesday threatened to roil a tightening race in the Republican-leaning state, where a Democratic political novice aimed to pull off a victory in a contest seen as a bellwether for next year’s U.S. congressional elections.
It was not clear what effect the assault charge against Republican technology executive Greg Gianforte would have on the Montana race, where 37 percent of the 699,207 registered voters had already submitted absentee ballots, according to state election officials.
Gianforte was charged with misdemeanor assault after a political correspondent for the U.S. edition of the Guardian newspaper said the candidate had “body-slammed” him during a campaign event in Bozeman.

Hannity asked Priebus if he thought Republican voters would feel “outright anger, frustration, and a sense of betrayal” if Trump had a 400 delegate lead but was not given the nomination.
Priebus deflected the question, referring to previous brokered conventions.
“In your opinion as the state chairman that the nominee of your party are you confident tonight will be either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz? Are you confident?” asked Hannity.
“This is what I’ll say, I think the nominee will be someone who’s running,” responded Priebus.
The GOP will ensure that the RULES Committee changes Rule 40 so as to enable Kasich to be the GOP nominee in a contested/brokered convention in July. And Priebus knows it,” commented Katherine Park.
“Hannity was stunned… and ticked off. We should be too. This primary election process is a farce.”
Priebus prompted controversy after a separate interview with Charlie Sykes on 620AM in Wisconsin during which the RNC Chairman scolded Trump supporters unhappy at the prospect of a brokered convention.
“By the way, this is a nomination for the Republican Party,” Priebus told Sykes. “If you don’t like the party, then sit down. The party is choosing a nominee.”
After Cruz’s win in Wisconsin, the Trump campaign accused the Texas Senator of illegally colluding with his own Super PACs in an effort to steal the nomination from Trump.
In the video Sanders says bread lines are a good thing because in other countries where there are not breadlines people are starving to death because “the rich get all the food.”
In addition to the Sandinista government in Nicaragua, Sanders praises Fidel Castro in Cuba.
During a debate in Miami earlier this month Sanders walked back his praise of Castro and Cuba while lauding its healthcare system.
“Look, let’s look at the facts here. Cuba is, of course, an authoritarian undemocratic country, and I hope very much as soon as possible it becomes a democratic country,” he said. “But on the other hand, it would be wrong not to state that in Cuba they have made some good advances in health care. They are sending doctors all over the world. They have made some progress in education. I think by restoring full diplomatic relations with Cuba, it will result in significant improvements to the lives of Cubans and it will help the United States and our business community invest.”
Alex Jones discusses how the political establishment plans to use the delegate system to steal the nomination from GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
The establishment media is conditioning the public into accepting a non-representational form of government where politicians are selected by the elite:
