Hillary Clinton aimed to hit high notes Sunday in the final moments of her campaign, hoping an uplifting message would wash away voters' disgust with the grueling presidential contest. Donald Trump vowed he and his supporters would never quit, as he charged into unexpected territory. The candidates embarked on one of their final tours of battleground states, shifting to their closing arguments to weary voters deeply divided along racial, economic and gender lines.

So far this week, Donald Trump has careened from controversy to controversy, sparking headlines by escalating fights with a military family, his party's top-elected official and, even, it seemed, a baby. The Republican presidential nominee also claimed he's always wanted a Purple Heart, gave an eyebrow-raising response to how his daughter would handle workplace sexual harassment, called his general election opponent "the devil," threatened to undermine the nation's tradition of peaceful democracy by suggesting the election could be rigged and collected a series of bipartisan denouncements that would stagger any other candidate for office.

Top Colorado Republicans are condemning GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s remarks about a Muslim family whose son was killed in Iraq. But the state’s GOP U.S. Senate candidate, who has already endorsed Trump, says he’s still supporting the nominee, and a congressman in a tight race came under fire for refusing to say whether he plans to vote for Trump.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Tuesday that he is refusing to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. John McCain, two of the party's most powerful members. He also ripped into New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte in the same interview with the Washington Post. All three have primary challengers and each disapproved of Trump's criticism of the Muslim American parents of an Army captain killed in Iraq.

In a searing denouncement, President Barack Obama slammed Donald Trump as "unfit" and "woefully unprepared" to serve in the White House on Tuesday. He challenged Republican lawmakers to drop their support for their party's nominee, declaring "There has to come a point at which you say enough." The president's blistering critique of his potential successor came on the heels of Trump's criticism of an American Muslim family whose son, a captain in the U.S. Army, was killed in Iraq. A growing number of GOP lawmakers have disavowed Trump's comments, but most of those who have endorsed him are sticking by that stance.
