PENCE JET SKIDS OFF RUNWAY; NO ONE HURT: For months, reporters traveling aboard Mike Pence’s campaign plane have joked about the hard, bone-shaking landings from small Iowa airports to major metropolitan hubs as the Republican vice presidential candidate has crisscrossed the country. The “Make America Great Again”-emblazoned 737 has been bumping its way across the swing states, prompting one reporter to joke morbidly a few weeks ago that a “Pence plane veers off the runway” story had been pre-written (Politico).

RGA GIVES HOLCOMB ANOTHER $1.5M: More big money is headed to Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb, according to the Secretary of State’s large donation web section (Howey Politics Indiana).

 

TEXAS OFFICIALS REFUTE TRUMP RIGGED ELECTION CLAIM: A social media post about ballot confusion in Texas has Donald Trump stoking claims of electoral corruption, but local officials say there’s not foundation for concern (CNN).

 

REPUBLICANS TALK OF CLINTON PROBES: So much for the honeymoon period. The election is 12 days away but Republicans are already promising years of investigations and blocked nominees if Hillary Clinton wins (CNN).

 

TRUMP CRITICIZES MOSUL OFFENSIVE: Donald Trump criticized the coalition’s Iraqi-led assault on Mosul, the last ISIS stronghold in Iraq (CBS News).

 

PUTIN ASKS ‘IS AMERICA A BANANA REPUBLIC?’ President Vladimir Putin on Thursday dismissed claims that Russia is interfering in the U.S. presidential election, saying the allegations are designed to distract the public from real issues (CBS News).

HPI DAILY ANALYSIS: The comments of Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry, a Democrat, are troubling in the wake of public comments by Secretary of State Connie Lawson and Indiana State Police Supt. Doug Carter related to two voter fraud investigation. “Accusations of fraud or other intentional acts prior to the conclusion of a thorough review by law enforcement and a prosecutor are premature and contrary to the foundational principle of presumed innocence until and unless proven guilty,” Curry said. Supt. Carter talked of how it “makes smoke come out of my ears” at the notion that Gov. Mike Pence instigated the October raid of Patriot Majorities to fit he and Donald Trump’s consistent narrative that there is widespread voter fraud and that the coming election is “rigged.” For the sake of this state, I will state plainly that if the levers of our election system were used in a partisan manner to fit this campaign narrative, that would be disqualifying acts of governance. And it was reassuring to have Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb say that he is “absolutely confident” that there will be a fair and accurate election here on Nov. 8. – Brian A. Howey
