Republican Candidates Aim To Stir Voter Passions In Nevada

ELKO, Nevada (AP) — Republican presidential candidates took last-minute appeals for support across the breadth of Nevada, seeking to stir passions of voters with rhetoric on topics ranging from campaign dirty tricks to imprisoning Democrat Hillary Clinton and wanting to punch a protester in the face.

At one rally Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said he liked the thought of Clinton behind bars. One of his supporters in Elko, Nevada, shouted that he should "put Hillary in jail" if he's elected in November. Cruz paused, and then responded: "With any luck, she'll be there already." The Justice Department is investigating her use of a private email server as secretary of state.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump said he'd like to punch a protester in the face, as the candidates competed for attention.
