Tennesseans go to the polls to decide between Trump, Clinton

So much so, that every piece of news regarding the email scandal saw indexes fall and each of Trump's scandalous comments saw them rise.

Branstad has noted that during his roughly 22 years as governor, he's usually had at least one legislative chamber controlled by Democrats.

Still, a Democrat hasn't captured statewide office in Texas since 1994 - the longest losing streak of its kind in the country. "But then the race tightened and is a nail-biter in the final hours".

In Democratic-leaning states like Wisconsin, Illinois, Nevada, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, Democratic candidates made final appeals trying to tie their GOP opponents to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. That could be an embarrassing setback for the GOP's 2012 vice presidential candidate, who may harbor future White House aspirations, and some Republicans say it might persuade the 46-year-old Ryan to leave Congress.

Magnolia State voters will also make choices in U.S. House races and nonpartisan state Supreme Court and Court of Appeals races.

Liverpool goes top of Premier League by beating Watford 6-1
Don't think about the circumstances, use them, use the training time, prepare yourself for the next game and, in an ideal world, win it".

Representative Tom Cole, a senior House Republican, said in a telephone interview he found it "mystifying in how he (Comey) has interjected himself in the election on three different occasions in ways that were probably inappropriate".

Democrats think a growing Hispanic electorate will especially help them in Colorado and Nevada.

Early voting turnout among Democrats ages 22 to 29 dramatically dropped, with one-third who showed up in 2012 failing to cast a ballot.

A senior Democratic aide said the Clinton emails controversy, which erupted again after FBI Director James Comey said on October 28 his agency would examine newly discovered emails that might pertain to her use of a private server while secretary of state, could reduce by at least 10 the number of House seats Democrats may capture from Republicans. Many districts traditionally maintain a rough split between registered Democrats, Republicans and voters with no party affiliation.

A federal judge in OH on Friday granted the Democratic Party's request for a temporary restraining order against Trump's campaign, Stone and Stop the Steal but denied it for the state Republican Party.

Sorry, future Tesla drivers - no more free supercharging
The decision is unlikely to affect well-heeled owners of the Model S sedan and Model X SUV, which start at $66,000 and $74,000. Tesla said the revenue derived from the supercharging fees will enable it to fund expansion of its supercharger network.

Republicans were aiming for Democratic-held seats north of Miami and in northern Minnesota and Omaha, Nebraska, and were strongly defending others that once seemed vulnerable in New York, Iowa and Wisconsin.

At the outset of the electoral cycle, it looked likely that the Democrats would regain control. Roy Blunt. Kander, a young military veteran, ran an ad in which he assembled an assault rifle blindfolded and challenged Blunt to do the same. North Carolina Republicans faced a backlash earlier this year when they passed HB2, the so-called "bathroom bill", that mandated transgender persons had to use the restroom of the gender they were born with. The race was also razor-close in Nevada, the one Democratic-held seat that was hotly contested this election, where Minority Leader Harry Reid was retiring after five terms. They need to flip nine House seats in MI for a majority. However, the Republicans have a fairly vast majority in the House of Representatives, and it will take an exceptional performance from the Democrats to win the 30 extra seats needed to flip the House. There are 25 districts Democrats hold that Gov. Matt Bevin carried when he was elected last November.

Voters in Tennessee will decide whom to send to Washington to represent them in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The GOP controls all but one of Texas' 29 statewide offices and nearly none are up for re-election until 2018, giving top Republicans in the country's largest red state two years to potentially relish antagonizing a Hillary Clinton administration the same way they did Barack Obama's White House.

Federal Bureau of Investigation chief is feeling heat from Team Clinton over email probe
The press quickly picked up Reid's letter and ran with it, amplifying a wave of criticism from the left over Comey's decision . The FBI is still working to determine if any of them are pertinent to the investigation into Clinton's private email server.
