Idaho Pastor Shot Just 1 Day After Praying at a Ted Cruz Rally

Authorities say an Idaho pastor was shot and critically injured in the parking lot of his church Sunday, just a day after giving a prayer at a rally for Republican candidate Ted Cruz.

Pastor Tim Remington was reportedly shot in the shoulder, lung and back outside the Altar Church, where he is senior pastor. He is expected to survive.
