Clinton deftly avoided Trump's name, using "him", "he", "his" and "her opponent", instead. He'll be holding an evening rally in Orlando, a key battleground area of the crucial swing state of Florida.

She immediately had her deputy summon an alternate juror, selected randomly from numbers in a cup, to be ready to join the jury in federal court at 8:30 a.m. "I've determined Juror 11 needs to be excused, " the judge told the jury moments later, citing the "interests of justice" and to ensure the case isn't jeopardized by the court's deeper questioning of jurors to figure out the fuller context of Juror 4's note.

The support of famous people has frustrated Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier, who said on Thursday he resented being asked by "outsiders and millionaire Hollywood actors" to let "agitators and rioters" break the law. " We won't step down from this fight". The tribe fears it will harm their drinking water and violate sacred sites. The sheriff's office said in a statement Friday that it was maintaining a presence in the area and that a section of a state highway remained closed.
The one-term Democrat was sentenced on Monday to 10 to 23 months in jail in the perjury and obstruction case. Former member of AG's office said successes were "in spite of her and not because of her" - said office was like "dancing on a trap door".

Just so you understand, so I will have, in my race, more than 100 million put in of my money.

No one was injured and Pence plans to campaign in Pennsylvania and North Carolina on Friday (Saturday NZT).

Kelly was Christie's deputy of chief of staff and Baroni one of his top appointees to the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey , the powerful bistate agency that controls bridges, tunnels, ports, airports and the World Trade Center. He read out Kelly's August 2013 email to Wildstein - "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee" - and he played an excerpt from Baroni's testimony before state legislators in November, 2013, in which Baroni portrayed the lane closures as a poorly-implemented ...

But organizers say the so-called yoga trousers parade wasn't a protest against Sorrentino specifically but part of a bigger movement against misogyny and men dictating how women should dress.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he thanked Tanzania and Croatia for demanding a vote on the measure instead of the unanimous consent vote needed for the resolution to be implemented. Gentiloni said UNESCO shouldn't be "a sounding board for political tensions", and should keep its focus on cultural heritage. It is, however, another example of growing global criticism of Israel.
There are signs that many Americans aren't actually looking for dramatic changes. That's good news for the GOP in a purple county that Obama won twice. Marco Rubio leads U.S. Rep.

By the evening of November 8, the Republican Party will have lost the popular vote for the sixth time in seven elections, and will have lost three consecutive elections for the first time since the 1940s.

Thanks to severe voter intimidation carried out by armed Republican operatives organized by the RNC in minority-heavy voting districts, the GOP candidate won by an extremely narrow margin. (Keep in mind, Watergate occurred before I could vote.) They will need to develop a concerned look when confronted by Trump supporters and ideal a disgusted shake of the head when faced with the possibility that Clinton will be elected president.
The justices said Friday they will hear the appeal from the Gloucester County school board sometime next year. The US Supreme Court said Friday that it will decide which bathrooms should be used by transgender people, a highly sensitive question with national political resonance.
But he said the Pentagon would have to work out how to deal with those who thought they were entitled to the bonuses but made a decision to pay them back anyway out of a sense of duty.

The attacks may not be fair-Steinorth and Hadley have publicly said they're not voting for Trump-but that hasn't deterred Democrats.

Michelle Obama earned praise from Clinton last week for delivering a whithering critique of Trump and his "intolerable" attitude toward women. The 70-year-old Trump is clinging to an edge - but only a slight one - in traditionally Republican strongholds like Texas, where he has a three-point lead.
But that all changed after the release of a video featuring Trump and some very degrading comments about women. "The idea", she said, "is to get folks to vote Democrat down the ballot".

The heated exchange on Kellys program Tuesday night ended with her suggesting Gingrich take some time for anger management. The Fox News Channel host presumably will be coming right from her duties hosting the No. Trump aide Dan Scavino , the campaign's social media director, seemed to rekindle Trump's primary season resentment of Kelly by taking Gingrich's side.
If she had known, she would never have hired a blue-chip law firm to sweep through the hallways of the Clinton Foundation searching for conflicts of interest. Wikileaks ultimately published tens of thousands of emails from Podesta's account. Neither does the disclosure that a State Department employee checked with the foundation to see whether companies seeking contracts to help in the 2010 natural disaster recovery effort in Haiti were "friends" of Bill Clinton or "WJC VIPs".
Experts say these changes were expected because numerous insurance providers initially underpriced their plans to attract more customers, according to the CNN article.

But footage from Chicago's ABC News affiliate station, WLS-TV, showed an American Airlines jet on the ground with flames and large clouds of black smoke billowing from one side of the aircraft, which had its emergency slides deployed. The plane burst into flames on the runway at O'Hare airport.
