Friday News Roundup - Domestic
With guest host Todd Zwillich.
We round up the week’s top news from around the country.
Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford announced he will challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 Republican primaries.
The president took credit for helping North Carolina Republican Dan Bishop narrowly win a special election for a House seat in a district the GOP has held onto for nearly six decades.
Dan Bishop was down 17 points 3 weeks ago. He then asked me for help, we changed his strategy together, and he ran a great race. Big Rally last night. Now it looks like he is going to win. @CNN & @MSNBC are moving their big studio equipment and talent out. Stay tuned!
