GOP Senator Ted Cruz told CNN he doesn't agree with 65 year old rocker Ted Nugent's explosive comments – calling President Obama a "subhuman mongrel" – but the Texas Republican would not rule out campaigning with Nugent in the future.

Today on New Day, CNN's Chris Cuomo spoke exclusively with Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey about the verdict in the Michael Dunn case, and calls for her resignation. About the criticism Corey said “Mr. Dunn is looking at 90 years in Florida state prison with 60 years of minimum mandatory. How anyone could be unhappy with these verdicts, knowing we intend to retry count one, is beyond me.”
Today on New Day, CNN's Chris Cuomo sat down with the parents of Jordan Davis, the 17-year shot and killed by Michael Dunn in what’s been described as the ‘loud music trial.’ In the interview, Lucia McBath, told Cuomo what she wants people to know about her son. She said “I was often amazed at how quickly he would make friends. We would be in an environment where we didn't know anybody. Within 10, 15 minutes, ‘Mom, this is my new friend. I made a new friend.’”
Davis’ parents talked about the verdict and their plans to fight to change Florida’s ‘stand your ground’ laws. Lucia McBath and Ron Davis also talked about the one thing they don’t agree on which is forgiving Michael Dunn.
