Pay no mind to the media mogul just moving around some money: The embattled, but still rich and impossibly powerful, News Corp. CEO sold 3.6 million of his A shares for “financial planning” reasons, but don’t get too excited — B shares, of which the Murdoch family owns 40 percent, are the ones that come with boardroom votingprivileges.
In the final stretch of the campaign, we find three Southern battlegrounds that could still go either way. Our estimates show Joe Biden with just a two-point edge over President Trump in Florida, Biden up four points in North Carolina, and the contest even in Georgia. …
[V]ery different views on the coronavirus pandemic still shape the race in all these states. In all, most Biden voters are very concerned about getting it, and Mr. Trump’s voters, by comparison, are far less concerned. Biden also gets better marks overall on how he would handle the outbreak.
An early-vote trend that could prove decisive on Election Night
One important election night twist: early mail ballots are really good for Biden in Arizona so far, reversing the traditional pattern (you may recall McSally led and then Sinema over took post election day). Now, I’d expect Biden to have the Election Night lead in Arizona.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is carrying a cash advantage of more than $100 million over President Donald Trump into the final weeks of the election, according to newly filed campaign finance reports.
Reports filed with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday revealed that Biden, the Democratic National Committee and two affiliated committees had $331.2 million in the bank as of Oct. 14, while Trump, the Republican National Committee and two of their fundraising affiliates had $223.6 million in reserve.
The filings also show that Biden continues to significantly outspend Trump. The president’s campaign raised $44 million and spent $63 million in the first two weeks of October, while Biden raised $130 million and dropped $145 million — more than $10 million a day during that time.
There have been other reports of landlords and renters clashing over the election, but this incident is extreme
A letter reportedly sent to tenants in a Colorado trailer park issued a jarring warning: If former vice president Joe Biden wins the election, your rent will double.
The short note, which was allegedly sent to residents by the owner of a Fort Morgan, Colo., trailer park on Monday, claimed that a Democratic victory in the presidential race would lead to “more in taxes, utilities, gasoline, groceries, new permits, fees and regulations … everything!”
“This also means YOUR RENT will be increased to cover these expenses,” the note continued. “Most likely, rent would DOUBLE in price!”
The stark letter, which residents shared with KUSA, irritated tenants and outraged some Colorado Democrats who on Thursday called the note “fearmongering” and a “scare tactic.” The Colorado secretary of state’s office has forwarded complaints about the letter to the state attorney general, KUSA reported.
