Today's installment of campaign-related news items from across the country.
* A senior official in Donald Trump's campaign told
Bloomberg Politics, "We have three major voter-suppression operations under way," including one targeting African Americans. (I think the aide was probably misusing the term, referring instead to discouraging, not suppressing, the vote, but the fact that he or she doesn't know the difference is interesting.)
* Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, joined Twitter this morning to release a new video
in which he explains why the election is "going to be close," and warns against "complacency."
* In Pennsylvania's U.S. Senate race, a new New York Times
shows Katie McGinty (D) leading incumbent Sen. Pat Toomey (R), 47% to 44%.
* In Nevada's U.S. Senate race, the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal
shows Joe Heck (R) with a seven-point advantage over Catherine Cortez Masto (D), 49% to 42%. On the other hand, the latest Las Vegas Review Journal poll
shows Cortez Masto leading Heck, 45% to 44%.
* And speaking of Toomey and Heck, the Nevada Republican borrowed a page from the Pennsylvanian's playbook yesterday, insisting voters shouldn't know
whom he's supporting for president.
* In New Hampshire's U.S. Senate race, the same NBC poll
found incumbent Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R) with the narrowest of leads over Gov. Maggie Hassan (D), 48% to 47%. The latest Monmouth University poll
shows the two rivals tied.
* As for New Hampshire's gubernatorial race, the Monmouth poll
also found Colin Van Ostern (D) leading Chris Sununu (R), 48% to 43%, erasing the Republican's previous advantage. read more
