Brazilian lawmaker Jair Bolsonaro, who is a leading candidate in next month's presidential election, has been stabbed at a campaign event in southeast Brazil.
But Flavio Bolsonaro, the candidate's son, said early Friday outside the hospital where his father was treated that he was conscious and the attack was a political boost.
Under Brazil's campaign laws, Bolsonaro's tiny coalition has nearly no campaign time on government-regulated candidate ad blocs on television and radio, so Bolsonaro relies on social media and rallies around the country to drum up support.
