Republican Rep. Steve Knight Fields Questions On Healthcare And Trump's Possible Conflicts Of Interest At Town Hall
[Steve] Knight engaged in about an hour of sometimes testy back-and-forth with the largely liberal crowd as they grilled him on his stances on various issues. Knight's district is almost evenly split between registered Democrats and Republicans, while about a fifth of voters list themselves as "no party preference." (Panzar, 4/18)

Knight Town Hall Brings Out Big, Loud Crowd In Simi Valley
In a Rancho Santa Susana Community Center packed to its 338-seat capacity, people shouted out questions and opinions about the environment, Trump’s tax returns, gun control and, more than anything else, health care ... [Steve] Knight, R-Lancaster, said he wanted to keep Medicare strong. He said one of his concerns about the failed Republican proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act was the possibility of increased costs for people ages 50 to 64, not yet qualified for Medicare. During many of his answers to questions about his opposition to the Affordable Care Act and other hot-button issues, the crowd hooted. Some people heckled him. (Kisken and Harris, 4/18)
