WASHINGTON (AP) — Here’s the latest news on the 2016 race for president. (All times local):
From cyberspace to space itself, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says “strength is really the defense against aggressiveness by others” from cyberspace to space itself.
Carson tells ABC’s “This Week” that he favors offensive cyberattacks against anyone who attacks the United States — “they need to understand that there will be consequences.”
The retired neurosurgeon also talks about the need to harden the country’s power grid and have “several layers of alternate energy.”
And then there’s space — the final frontier.
Carson says the U.S. must “get back into space” because in the future, “he who controls space will control the Earth.”
Jeb Bush says he can win the New Hampshire primary.
In an interview Sunday on Fox News, the former Florida governor says the polls now showing Donald Trump in the lead don’t mean much five months before New Hampshire Republicans vote. He says the polls count people who may not cast a ballot. Currently, billionaire businessman Donald Trump is the front-runner in New Hampshire and national polls in the race for the GOP nomination.
Bush says: “I’m confident I can win New Hampshire for sure.”
