Inside Politics: Obama presents ID to vote in Chicago
Question of the Day
Francis and Nancy McGowan of Sioux Falls, both retired, said they attended the viewing because they held Mr. McGovern in high esteem because he cared for people.
“We’re thankful for his service,” Nancy McGowan said. “The world is a better place because he was here, not only for his wisdom as a politician but also for his caring and feeding of the hungry.”
State AG delivers strong message to poll watchers
AUSTIN — Don’t mess with Texas elections.
That’s the double-down message Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott delivered Thursday to international poll watchers who want to come and observe voting on Election Day.
The squabble started after Mr. Abbott wrote to the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe, threatening to prosecute any of its members who come within 100 feet of a polling location in violation of state law.
The State Department says it has received reassurance from the OSCE that it will follow state election laws.
Time is running out to refocus Senate race
JEFFERSON CITY — Since first uttering the words “legitimate rape,” Republican Missouri Senate candidate W. Todd Akin has continued to say things that have distracted attention from his campaign theme against Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill.
Mr. Akin has linked Ms. McCaskill to President Obama and his spending and health care policies. But unwanted attention remains — most recently he compared Ms. McCaskill to a dog, and before that he suggested she wasn’t “ladylike.”
Mr. Akin, currently serving in the House, is running out of time to focus voters’ attention squarely on Ms. McCaskill and to counter her advertising blitz. An Associated Press analysis of his campaign finance report shows that small-dollar contributions to him temporarily swelled after his rape remark, but not many donors gave the maximum amount allowed by law.
