A crowd of 200,000 people rallied in support of French presidential candidate Francois Fillon and his Republican party in Paris on Sunday. Fillon used to be a favorite in the upcoming election, but his approval ratings dropped after the "fake job" allegations against him that surfaced in January. Fillon is accused of paying his wife with public funds to carry out tasks as his parliamentary aide.
