NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — A Republican congressional candidate in Massachusetts who confronted two women at a Columbus Day rally in support of President Donald Trump says she was kicked in the head and fractured a leg bone during a scuffle.
Rayla Campbell, who’s mounting a write-in campaign against Democrat U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, said Monday’s rally in New Bedford had just wrapped up when the encounter happened.
Video of the confrontation taken by a bystander shows Campbell arguing and scuffling with the women.
At one point, Campbell walks toward the women as they back away before they appear to push each other and fall to the ground.
New Bedford police are investigating.
