    Anything else? The consensus is that Republicans underperformed Tuesday. In fact, conservative writer Marc Thiessen implored the GOP to head into some deep introspection after failing to deliver the promised "red wave" for the midterm elections. "We had the worst inflation in four decades, the worst collapse in real wages in 40 years, the worst crime wave since the 1990s, the worst border crisis in U.S. history. We have Joe Biden, who is the least popular president since Harry Truman — since presidential polling happened — and there wasn’t a red wave," the Fox News contributor said late Tuesday.
    The driver and the other three passengers in the Acura all sustained moderate to critical injuries and were transported to local hospitals. The St. Landry Parish coroner’s office reported that Hendrix died as a result of the crash. Authorities noted that Cook was not injured, despite not wearing a seatbelt. Police stated that he had no signs of impairment but was cited for failure to yield from a stop sign. The crash remains under investigation. “Speaking to the people in that area, they’re just shocked,” St. Landry Parish President Jessie Bellard said. “It’s tragic. The community is a small community, and they’re mourning the loss of their mayor.” After 100% reporting of election results, Londerno is expected to have won with 43% of the vote. Incumbent Mayor Hendrix received approximately 17% of the vote. St. Landry Parish Clerk of Court Charles Jagneaux noted that because Hendrix passed away before polling places closed, qualifying for candidates will be reopened. Jagneaux explained that a new mayoral election would be held in December if an additional candidate qualifies by Monday. If...
    New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) unexpectedly teamed up with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Tuesday morning in Queens as residents gathered to vote at polling stations across the state. The pairing came as a surprise after Hochul had avoided appearances with the congresswoman at prior campaign events, which included stumping with high-profile Democrats including Vice President Kamala Harris and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Hochul has described herself as a more centrist "Biden Democrat," which stands in contrast to Ocasio-Cortez's far-left bent. VOTER INTIMIDATION REPORTED IN SEVERAL STATES AS NAACP MONITORS THE POLLS “We cannot afford an anti-choice person. Gov. Hochul has been so strong on supporting women's right to choose,” Ocasio-Cortez told the New York Post. “She came out here after Hurricane Ida and we worked together to make sure we could get the fastest disaster declaration to help families out here get bailed out.” Hochul, who became the first female governor of New York after taking over for former Gov. Andrew Cuomo last year, is locked in a heated gubernatorial battle against Republican...
    Countless pundits and pollsters have been predicting that Republicans will enjoy a major red wave on Tuesday, November 8, regaining control of the U.S. House of Representatives and winning their share of key gubernatorial races as well. The Senate is widely regarded as a toss-up; Senate races in Pennsylvania, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia and other swing states are close. And Democratic strategists and organizers who, behind closed doors, are pessimistic about their chances of keeping the House are at least hoping that they will be able to keep the Senate. But one liberal/progressive activist who is feeling very bullish about Democratic prospects in the 2022 midterms is Michael Moore. The filmmaker has been predicting that Democrats will enjoy a “blue tsunami” on November 8, and he stuck by that prediction during a Thursday, November 3 appearance on MSNBC’s weekday show “The Beat.” Interviewed by host Ari Melber, Moore said of Republicans, “They’re not going to be in charge. They’re not going to win next Tuesday. And it seems like I take a minority position on this because the media...

    Republican Glenn Youngkin faces former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) in Tuesday’s election, and the outcome will boil down to voter turnout as the two candidates head into Election Day in a dead heat, with more than a million votes already cast. The two candidates are virtually tied in almost every recent poll, but Youngkin, a political newcomer who was essentially unknown prior to running for office, narrowly pulled ahead of longtime politician and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) in the RealClearPolitics average of polls in late October, demonstrating a rare boost of momentum that is giving downtrodden Virginia Republicans hope. Running alongside Youngkin are former Del. Winsome Sears, a Jamaican immigrant and military veteran running for lieutenant governor, and Del. Jason Miyares, a Cuban American hoping to unseat incumbent Attorney General Mark Herring (D). One hundred House of Delegate seats are also up for grabs and present an opportunity for a GOP flip, given some 20-plus of those races are considered toss-ups. While Youngkin, a 54-year-old former CEO in private equity, spent his last day on the campaign trail rallying thousands of supporters in...
    The mother of the 15-year-old boy who dressed in a skirt and raped a female classmate in the girl's bathroom and was then charged with sexually assaulting another girl months later says her son doesn't identify as a female, and it wasn't just some disguise to slip into the girl's bathroom. Speaking exclusively with DailyMail.com, the mother, who asked not to be identified for the sake of her underage son, defended his actions as that of a heterosexual, hormonal teen who, in the case of the rape, had consensual sex with the girl twice before. 'He's a 15-year-old boy that wanted to have sex in the bathroom, with somebody that was willing,' she declared, sitting in an empty kitchen in her townhouse in Loudoun County, Virginia. 'And they're twisting this just enough to make it a political hot button issue.' The story exploded when Scott Smith, the father of the rape victim, was dragged out of a school board meeting with a bloodied mouth on June 22 after listening to school officials deny that a girl had been sexually assaulted...

    Patrick Mahomes piled up some very big numbers at Arrowhead Stadium last week -- twice. Five days before throwing for four touchdowns and nearly 400 yards in the Kansas City Chiefs’ 33-31 victory over the Carolina Panthers, Mahomes helped turn his home stadium into a giant polling place on Election Day.

    By ARNIE STAPLETON, AP Pro Football Writer Patrick Mahomes piled up some very big numbers at Arrowhead Stadium last week. Twice.

    The Los Angeles Police Department announced it was going on tactical alert Tuesday afternoon, an expected move that comes as law enforcement is on guard for any unrest or other issues related to the election. Police stressed they have no intelligence suggesting problems but want to be prepared. The alert allows more officers to be available. LAPD Chief Michel Moore said staffing had been boosted and staggered, and the department will have significant numbers of officers on duty well into election night and beyond, both to facilitate peaceful protests and to watch out for intimidation, violence or destruction. Moore said nearly every uniformed officer would work a 12-hour shift on election day, and officers will have a visible presence across the city all week. He pledged immediate action to restore order if disturbances were to unfold. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and other law enforcement agencies are also planning similar deployments.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – As Florida voters head to the polls on the last day of the General Election, the state is still seen as a toss-up in the Presidential race. For President Donald Trump, the state’s 29 Electoral College votes are vital for any chance of re-election. Polls have shown the Republican incumbent and Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden virtually tied. And while Democrats dominated vote-by-mail ballots, Republicans closed the gap with early in-person voting and are expected to turn out in higher numbers Tuesday. “It’s going to be close,” said Michael Binder, who runs the University of North Florida Public Opinion Research Lab. He said the margin of victory would likely be within 1 percentage point. “Two percent is a blowout of epic proportions in the state of Florida,” he said. Florida set the standard for close presidential elections in 2000 when George W. Bush defeated Al Gore by 537 votes out of nearly 6 million that were cast. It took five weeks and a U.S. Supreme Court order halting a messy recount process before...

    Donald Trump Jr. joined his father on stage at one of his final Election Eve rallies in Wisconsin for their big closing message. Trump thanked the rally goers for their support and said, “Unlike the Bidens, we don’t have a mainstream media that will campaign for us. We have to do it ourselves.” “We need you to get out and bring your friends to vote tomorrow, and when we do we cannot only keep making America great again,” he continued, “but we can make liberals cry again!” You can watch above, via Fox Business.

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — While Marylanders are able to check the status of their mail-in or provisional ballots online for the 2020 election, some may not see their vote as being accepted until after Election Day. That should not alarm people, the state’s elections board said Monday. With so many votes being cast by mail this year, the state elections board said some voters may not see their ballots listed as counted on the online ballot tracker until after Election Day.

    New York City restaurants are getting ready in case Election Day comes served with a side of civil unrest. As retail shops from the Gucci boutique in Soho to the Macy’s flagship on Herald Square board up their storefronts in case of riots, restaurants across Manhattan say they aren’t fooling around, either. Patsy’s Italian — the 75-year-old Neapolitan eatery at 236 W. 56th St. that was famously a favorite of Frank Sinatra — will be closed on Election Day “for security reasons,” said Sal Scognamillo, the restaurant’s third-generation chef/owner. Scognamillo boarded up the eatery on Monday and also beefed up security — hiring two ex-NYPD armed guards for Election Day and Wednesday, when he plans to reopen. However, he says he will be “monitoring the climate to see how it goes. We hope to reopen for dinner on Wednesday but will play it by ear.” In the case of restaurants, the New York Police Department has warned that outdoor tables and chairs that lately have become ubiquitous on sidewalks could be weaponized by riled- up crowds. The advisory was...
    Tom Boggioni November 2, 2020 11:44AM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story According to a report from Politico, scattered right-wing militia members are looking at Election Day as a moment when they will hit the streets fully-armed in anticipation of protests over the election results. The report notes that chatter among the groups has been building for some time and that it "has taken a darker turn in recent weeks." : According to the report by Politico's Tine Nguyen, "Fueled by allegations of mail-in ballot fraud, shouted from the president's Twitter feed and conservative media outlets, a new spate of racial justice protests in places like Philadelphia and paranoia over further coronavirus restrictions, some militias have begun doomsday prepping for Election Day." The report goes on top note that the groups have been emboldened by the president's recent inflammatory rhetoric with Nguyen writing, "Many of these militant groups — which often espouse anti-government, white supremacist and pro-Trump ideologies — are disconnected and diffuse, without large bases of devoted members. But researchers and government officials say they still represent...
    With less than two days until Election Day, President Trump and his Democratic opponent Joe Biden honed in on more pointed, personal attacks on each other in the lead-up to one of the most divisive elections in U.S. history. Trump -- who's never shied away from attacking his rivals -- delivered an address at a rally outside Detroit, Mich., filled with personal attacks against Biden. Biden volleyed back, taking aim at Trump during a drive-in rally in Philadelphia for his refusal to wear a mask during the early months of the coronavirus pandemic. A USA Today/Suffolk poll released Thursday showed Biden with a comfortable 8 percentage point lead nationally. However, the race is tighter in the swing states the candidates need to reach 270 electoral votes. Follow below for more updates on the 2020 Election. Mobile users click here.

Speaking at a rally outside Detroit, Mich. Trump -- who's never shied away from attacking his rivals -- delivered an address filled with personal attacks against Biden. “If Biden and Harris, the radical left, gain power, they will crash the economy, destroy your farms, and all of the things I got you, like the estate tax -- that's going to be ended,” Trump said. It was a warning he reitereated later in the day during a rally in Hickory, N.C. “Europe imposed draconian lockdowns and yet their cases are exploding, their deaths are surging and their economies are in ruins,” Trump said. “We had the smallest down and the largest up on the economy, by far. The European lockdowns are leading to more suffering, delayed medical care and financial devastation. A vote for Biden is a vote for lockdowns, layoffs, misery and getting rid of your Second Amendment.”...

    Thousands of New Yorkers — some rising before dawn — stood in line outside polling sites Saturday as they got their first-ever chance to vote early in a presidential election. “We want to vote. We don’t want any hassle or any drama [or] to deal with anybody that might deter people from voting. We want to be safe,” said a Manhattan retiree named Ellen, who stood at the front of the line to cast her ballot for Joe Biden at Madison Square Garden. She arrived just before 7 a.m. and by 9:30 a.m. there were about 400 people behind her. Jettie Thomas, an administrative judge for the state, got to the Garden two and a half hours ahead of the polls opening at 10 a.m. “I’m excited to get it over with. And hopefully it will come out for the best,” said Thomas, a Biden supporter. “We’ve all had enough of all of this.” Election officials expect 60,000 people to vote at Madison Square Garden, which is being used for the first time as a polling site, as is the...
    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Election Day is still three weeks away, but early voting is underway and thousands of North Texans are already making their way to the polls. CBS 11 News crews found long lines outside a number of voting centers — including at the Fretz Park Library in far North Dallas. On the eastside of Fort Worth voters reported issues at the Precinct 8 voting center and there was a line that went all the way down the street because of it.

    Roger Sollenberger October 2, 2020 2:36AM (UTC) Trump campaign senior adviser Justin Clark told a room of Republican lawyers during a closed-door meeting in Wisconsin last year that the organization saw a "huge, huge, huge, huge" opportunity in what it referred to as its "2020 Election Day Operations." "First and foremost is the consent decree's gone," he said. : Clark referenced a recently-expired court order barring Republican operatives from a number of voter-intimidation activities. After the Republican National Committee hired off-duty law enforcement to intimidate voters in minority communities in 1981, the consent decree was born. Ruling there was no proof that Republicans had recently violated the decree, a federal judge dropped it in 2018. That set up Election Day in 2020 to be the first time in nearly four decades where the Republican National Committee will not be required to obtain advance approval for any planned "ballot security" measures at the polls. It was this opening that Clark dubbed a "huge" deal. A few months after that closed-door meeting, the Trump campaign launched "armyfortrump.com" — an official website recruiting supporters to pitch in with voting operations, including on Election Day. Drawing on military language and iconography —...
