Republican Greg Gianforte claimed a narrow victory in Montana’s closely watched special election for the state’s at-large congressional seat, defeating Democrat Rob Quist in a race that is likely to be mined for clues about how the voting electorate feels about the political turbulence of Donald Trump’s young presidency heading into next year’s midterm elections. With 83 percent of precincts reporting, Gianforte led Quist by roughly 7 points in the race. The results came after a wild 24 hours in the race, in which Gianforte, a billionaire technology entrepreneur from Bozeman, was charged with misdemeanor assault after he allegedly “body slammed” Ben Jacobs, a reporter for the Guardian newspaper, at a campaign event on Wednesday just hours before voters headed to the polls.

Hillary Clinton delivered the commencement address at her alma mater, Wellesley College, Friday, 48 years after she was the school’s first-ever student commencement speaker when she graduated in 1969. In one of her most high-profile appearances since losing the presidential election, Clinton doled out biting criticism of President Trump’s tumultuous administration, albeit without mentioning him by name. Pointedly, she referenced the political climate at the time of her 1969 speech, when “we were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would end with disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice, after he fired the man running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice.” This reference to Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal was an apparent connection to Trump, who sparked a firestorm by suddenly firing James Comey as FBI director earlier this month (although Nixon resigned before he was actually impeached).

A prosecutor wanted to send a man who killed seven people in South Carolina to death row, but the state's lack of execution drugs and the desire of victims' relatives to never see him again led authorities to accept a deal for life in prison without parole for the serial killer. Todd Kohlhepp pleaded guilty Friday to seven counts of murder for the killings that took place over well over a decade - as he ran a real estate business. "I just want him to go away," said Lorraine Lucas, whose son's killing, along with three others, was unsolved for 13 years before deputies found a woman chained in a storage container on Kohlhepp's property in Spartanburg County.
