SPEAKER RYAN STUMPS FOR ‘TRIPLE T’s IN SELLERSBURG:
Less than 48 hours after vice presidential nominee Mike Pence headlined
a Jeffersonville rally, House Speaker Paul Ryan was at a Trey
Hollingsworth rally today at the Clark County Regional Airport to
campaign for the 9th CD Republican and Senate hopeful Todd Young (Thomas
Curry, Howey Politics Indiana). 

 

THOUSANDS OF ATTACK ADS UP TO THE VERY END: If it seems like most of the political commercials you’re seeing on TV are attack ads, it’s not your imagination (Segall, WTHR-TV).
In the three most high-profile races in Indiana, candidates and the
political action committees (PACs) that support them have been busy
slinging a dizzying amount of mud at one another.

 

GREGG CALLS FOR SUPPORTERS TO REACH OUT TO REPUBLICANS:
They feel the momentum and on Tuesday at a half a dozen barnstorming
stops across southeastern Indiana, Democrat John Gregg and his running
mate Christina Hale urged party faithful along with Republicans and
independents to step on the gas and, perhaps, honk the horn (Howey Politics Indiana).

 

TRUMP, CLINTON TIED IN ABC/WP TRACKING POLL: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are all but tied in the latest Washington Post-ABC News Tracking Poll,
which finds Clinton backers slipping behind in enthusiasm even as the
Democrat has an edge in early voting.

 

FIVETHIRTYEIGHT MODEL GIVES CLINTON 70% WIN CHANCE:
Tuesday was another pretty good day of polling for Donald Trump. It’s
also not an easy day to characterize given the large number of polls
published (Silver, FiveThirtyEight). Trump remains an underdog, but no longer
really a longshot: His Electoral College chances are 29 percent in our
polls-only model — his highest probability since Oct. 2 — and 30 percent
in polls-plus.

 

JANET HOLCOMB INJURED IN DOG ATTACK:
“Janet is going to make it. The dog is going to make it.” – Lt. Gov.
Eric Holcomb, informing Boone County Republicans in Zionsville Tuesday
night that his wife, Janet, and his Schnauzer dog Henry were mauled in a
dog attack in Winamac on Saturday (Howey Politics Indiana).
Holcomb said his wife was attending a certified shooting and birding
event near Winamac when a black lab attacked Henry. Janet Holcomb has
been treated and released from the hospital.

 

PENCE HAS OPTIONS FOR A JOB IN 2020:
If Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump fails to claim victory
come Nov. 8, his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, will be on the
hunt for a new job (Rund, Roll Call). But even with a loss, the
onetime six-term congressman will emerge from this election cycle having
significantly raised his national political profile and establishing
himself as a potential top-tier contender for his party’s nomination in
2020.

 

ELECTION DAY PROMISES TO BE A MARATHON: Grab some toothpicks to prop open your eyelids because Election Day promises to be a marathon (Associated Press).

 

CUBS FORCE A SENSATIONAL GAME 7:  The
sixth game of the World Series wasn’t yet an hour old, and already it
had arrived at two separate moments on which it might pivot. Two on, two
out in the first. One out, bases loaded in the third. Both times,
Addison Russell of the Chicago Cubs stepped to the plate and dug in (Washington Post).
There will be a seventh and final game of this
World Series between these two franchises, whose karma has been mostly
catastrophic. Wednesday night, over the final nine innings of the year —
or maybe more — one hex will be broken, the other will continue. That
happy bit of history will occur because in those two moments, Russell
took a pair of swings that pushed across six runs — including an
absolutely crippling grand slam off Otero — and the Cubs rolled to a 9-3
victory that equaled this World Series at three games apiece.

 

HPI DAILY ANALYSIS:
So here we have it, in this election cycle of controversy and angst,
the Chicago Cubs end up in a Game 7 of the World Series. You’ve gotta
believe it’s going to come down to the bottom of the ninth, two out,
bases loaded and . . . . Godspeed Cubbies. – Brian A. Howey
