Trump defends manager, Clinton takes aim, Cruz looking to convention

WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump says he's advised his campaign manager not to settle a simple battery charge filed today in Florida. Corey Lewandowski is charged in connection with an incident with a reporter. It can be seen on video. Trump's rivals have pounced. Ted Cruz says the Trump campaign has a culture of "abusive behavior."

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Sen. Ted Cruz says he's running to win the GOP presidential nomination, but if that doesn't happen, the Texas lawmaker says he's in a "strong position" to capture it at the Republican convention. He made the comment at a Republican town hall Tuesday in Milwaukee, hosted by CNN.

BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says if someone else gets picked to be the GOP nominee, he'll no longer support his pledge to support him. At a CNN town hall in Milwaukee, Trump's rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich refused to say whether they'd support Trump or whoever is the nominee. Trump says he's rescinding his promise because he's "been treated very unfairly." Wisconsin's primary is April 5.

APPLETON, Wis. (AP) — Bernie Sanders has been criticizing voter identification laws at a town hall today in Wisconsin, a week before the state's presidential primary in which the new requirement will apply. Almost 4,000 Sanders supporters packed a theater in Appleton for the event, nearly double the capacity. The Vermont senator said governors like Republican Scott Walker have been making it harder for people to participate in the political process. Wisconsin's voter ID law, which went into effect this year, is one of the most restrictive in the country.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton is taking aim at Donald Trump's hardline immigration policies and the violence at some of his rallies in a new television ad that her campaign says will run in New York.

Clinton says in the ad that while some people say America's problems can be solved by "building walls" and "banning people based on their religion," New Yorkers know better. The spot also shows a clip of a man being punched at a recent Trump rally and briefly flashes a sign from one of the billionaire's new hotels.

New York holds its Democratic and Republican primaries on April 19.

While Clinton is still facing a challenge from Democratic rival Bernie Sanders, it's notable that she's focusing in the ad on Trump, the Republican frontrunner and native New Yorker.
