Republican Greg Gianforte is projected to win a special election for Montana's open congressional seat just 36 hours after being charged for allegedly assaulting a journalist, according to CNN Friday.

In his acceptance speech, Gianforte apologized by name to Ben Jacobs, the Guardian reporter who accused the Republican of "body-slamming" him and breaking his glasses, CNN reported.
