Paul Ryan: Gianforte should apologize after reporter 'bodyslam'

Republican multimillionaire Greg Gianforte has won Montana's only US House seat despite being charged a day earlier with assault after witnesses said he grabbed a Guardian reporter by the neck and threw him to the ground. "That's the Montana way", he said.

After the incident, the Gallatin County Sheriff cited Gianforte for misdemeanor assault, and instructed him to appear in court by June 7. Colbert complimented Jacobs for his good reporting of "narrating his own body-slam".

"You just body slammed me and broke my glasses", a shaken Jacobs replies. "I took an action I can't take back and I am not proud of what happened", he said.

"I should not have treated that reporter that way and for that I'm sorry, Mr Jacobs". Jacobs posted audio of the encounter, and Fox News Channel journalists who were present verified the account. Libertarian Mark Wicks had 6 percent; his vote total was less than Gianforte's margin over Quisp.

The incident occurred when Ben Jacobs, a Gaurdian reporter tried to ask Gianforte about healthcare.

The fallout from the alleged assault was swift, though it ultimately didn't make much difference to the outcome of the election. Gianforte looked at the three of us and repeatedly apologized.

"That's not the person I am, and it's not the way I'll lead in this state", he said.

He is running for the state's only congressional seat in a special election set for Thursday. Daines said that fact-Quist's embrace of the Democratic left in a state that typically rewards Democratic moderates-would sink Quist. The contest for Montana's sole U.S. House seat began after Republican Ryan Zinke resigned in March, when he became U.S. Interior secretary. Steves Daines (R-MT) and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan both said publicly they believed Gianforte should apologize.

However, he also stated that too many expectations will only put more pressure on you as a player. Shakib Al Hasan and Mehedi Hasan are the lead bowler to play against England in this tournament.

"Last night I learned a lesson", Gianforte told supporters.

The campaign's original statement described a scene in which Gianforte simply grabbed Jacob's recording device, before the reporter jerked it away, pulling the two to the floor.

Commentators debated furiously whether Gianforte's attack would affect the election, given 37 percent of registered voters had already cast absentee ballots, and 66 percent of issued absentee ballots were already returned.

That means anywhere from a third to a fourth of the overall vote will happen at the polls Thursday.

Mrs May offered her "huge gratitude" to the emergency services attending the incidents. "This is a fast-moving investigation". On the other hand, BBC reported citing a witness that a white van veered off the road and hit at least five to six people.
