Trump Makes Vow, Clinton Talks History
WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is vowing not to muzzle his criticism of fellow Republicans.
Trump, in his third Wisconsin event Saturday, says his inner circle and even his family beg him to lay off his GOP rivals. He tells a cheering Eau Claire crowd that, "If it works, great. If it doesn't work, great."
Trump is also calling Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton "a disaster" and President Barack Obama "a baby" for approving the Iran nuclear deal.
All three of Donald Trump's events in Wisconsin on Saturday went off without any interruption from protesters.
Ted Cruz has backed off his feud with Trump over the front-runner's negative comments about Cruz's wife.
Trump told New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd in an article published Saturday that it was a mistake to retweet an unflattering photo of Cruz's wife paired with a glamorous photo of his own wife, Melania Trump.
Cruz was asked about Trump's comments. He responded, "If he says it's a mistake, that's fine, it's a mistake."
John Kasich says that to fix Social Security "people of this country need to start demanding leadership out of their leaders." The Ohio governor says another part of the solution involves wealthy people accepting less in benefits so people who rely on Social Security as income won't face cuts.
Clinton notes history as 'a proud Democrat'
WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton is reminding 1,500 stalwart Democrats in Wisconsin she has long been one of them — unlike Bernie Sanders, a longtime independent.
At a banquet in Milwaukee ahead of the April 5 Wisconsin primary, Clinton mentioned her membership and support for the Democratic Party five times in the first few minutes of her speech.
She says, "I am a proud Democrat and I support Democrats up and down the ticket, always have and always will."
Clinton followed Sanders, a Vermont senator, onstage at the Wisconsin Center. The two are locked in a close battle in Tuesday's primary.
Sanders is urging young people in Wisconsin to turn out to vote.
The Democratic presidential hopeful told a rally at the University of Wisconsin's Eau Claire campus that if young people turn out, he will win Tuesday's primary. If they don't, Sanders says, "we will probably lose."
Sanders supporters waited for hours to hear him.
