One of the bitterest Congressional races in the country descended into physical confrontation at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California Thursday night.
Rep. Brad Sherman and Rep. Howard Berman — each fighting for his political life in a redrawn Los Angeles-area district — face each other in November in California’s open primary system.
Sherman is seen shouting at Berman in a video sent BuzzFeed by the Berman campaign.
“Don’t get in my face. Stay away from me,” Sherman, the larger man, yells, and then puts his arm around Berman’s shoulders.
The politicians were then separated by a deputy from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
- Hillary Clinton returned to the public arena in one of her first political appearances since the election, urging Democrats to "keep fighting."
- President Trump addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, where he lashed out at the media and defended his agenda.
- The White House strongly denies reports that Chief of Staff Reince Priebus urged the FBI to undermine stories linking Trump to Russia.
- Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korea's leader, was killed with a chemical weapon last week at an airport in Malaysia.
