The New Black Panther Party is back at the polls Tuesday in Philadelphia, where its members provoked a complaint of voter intimidation in 2008.
While President Obama and his team are publicly exuding confidence ahead of Tuesday's election, they're still engaging in some superstitious pre-election rituals — like playing pickup basketball.
The Virginia Senate race between former governors George Allen and Tim Kaine has topped $52 million in spending by outside groups, including nonprofits that do not disclose their donors, making it by far the most popular congressional race in the country among the newly legalized independent groups.
Top Obama campaign advisers dismissed national polls indicating Tuesday's presidential race is a dead heat, saying an advantage in early voting and the president's extensive ground game in battleground states nearly guarantee a Democratic victory.
The group behind an annual motorcycle rally to honor U.S. veterans has endorsed Republican Mitt Romney for president.
High school students from across the country voted to give President Obama another term in one of the nation's largest mock elections.
Political-betting websites that allow wagers on Tuesday's elections increasingly favor President Obama to be re-elected as betting heats up on the final day before voting.
Mitt Romney kicked off his final full day of campaigning with a rally inside an airport hangar here in Florida, the first of four scheduled stops that will wrap up the Republican presidential nominee's second bid for the White House and set the table for voters to tap the next commander-in-chief.
On his second-last day of campaigning, Mitt Romney traveled Sunday to Pennsylvania, where he was looking to connect on a late-game "Hail Mary" by becoming the first Republican to win the Keystone State since George H. W. Bush won here in 1988.
Stevie Wonder gave a surprise mini-concert full of big political messages when warming up the Sunday night crowd before President Obama delivered remarks in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Five hundred retired generals and admirals are running an ad in Monday's editions of The Washington Times calling on the country to elect Republican Mitt Romney on Tuesday.
Call them the procrastination PACs: Political action committees have given $13 million to House and presidential candidates in the final two weeks of the campaign, leaving candidates even less time to actually make use of the money. All of the donations came after Oct. 17, the final main donor-disclosure reports that most journalists and opposition researchers work off of before the election.
The Obama campaign denied Sunday that the president was deliberately stalling to avoid providing answers about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, until after Tuesday’s election.
Senior Obama adviser David Plouffe said Sunday the Romney campaign is "playing defense" in the final days of the 2012 presidential campaign — a good sign for the White House.
Former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour said Hurricane Sandy and the resulting week-long "news blackout" broke the momentum of the Mitt Romney presidential campaign.
