Michelle Obama joins Hillary Clinton at campaign rally

Now, the first couple are a surrogate powerhouse unseen in recent political history, lending their voice on behalf of Clinton's candidacy even more in the final stretch of the campaign. Mrs Obama had taken an indirect swipe at Mrs Clinton then, telling voters that "if you can't run your own house, you certainly can't run the White House".

The emails were among those released Thursday by Wikileaks. The emails were among thousands stolen from the private account of a top Clinton aide, part of a hacking the Democratic campaign has blamed on the Russians.

"Hillary's got the wind at her back, but we can't become overconfident", Mook says.

Obama went on to slam Trump's claims that the election will be "rigged" without mentioning the GOP nominee by name.

That's according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.

The first lady again made the argument that this election is "bigger" than partisan differences between Republicans and Democrats. In the speech, Clinton said, "Just as in a previous generation we had an organized effort against the mob".

She added: "This is not about Republicans v Democrats. Period. End of story".

Tim Kaine is tying Donald Trump's business record to the decline in steel jobs in Lorain, Ohio.

The Democratic vice presidential nominee was campaigning in the town Thursday. He said about 1,200 steel jobs there have been lost due to competition from China.

"Yes, Hillary Clinton is my friend", she answered. "What a disgusting situation", Trump said.

Donald Trump's running mate is hoping to shore-up deeply conservative Nebraska by referencing the state's beloved Cornhuskers football.

He's speaking at a Thursday rally at a concrete-floored construction supplies company in Omaha, Nebraska that also featured Pete Ricketts, the state's governor. There were no injuries, the Pence campaign said.

The women were unveiling a new 500 million USA dollar policy plan aimed at reducing bullying.

Clinton is expected to talk about the plan during an appearance with first lady Michelle Obama Thursday. She delivered electrifying remarks at the Democratic National Convention over the summer, and earlier this month, she harshly condemned Trump's recently unveiled lewd comments about women in an emotional speech. The campaign said states must address spoken and cyber bullying, establish a process for addressing incidents and ban bullying on the "basis of race, colour, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and religion". It would be paid for through Clinton's proposed tax increases on the wealthy.

Al Franken is bringing some humor to the trail while he campaigns in OH alongside Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine.

One day earlier, in Charlotte, Trump outlined proposals to boost impoverished urban areas in what he billed a "New Deal for black America", lamenting that "too many African-Americans have been left behind". He said that's proof that every door knock and vote matters.

The state's importance in the election is reflected in the number of recent visits by the candidates.

Obama has been eager to promote Clinton and to challenge Trump. Election officials have said the machines aren't malfunctioning, and that some voters may be inadvertently making errors.

But for now, all the Clinton team can do is complain, and probably hope that nothing damaging comes out over the next 11 days. A state, that her campaign calls a "check mate" state.

"Once those sites open up and people start utilizing those, we should see a pretty significant jump", said Michael Bitzer, a professor at Catawba College.

Her husband is an avid user of Twitter, often using it to attack his opponents and critics in blunt, harsh terms. "I believe with all my heart that Hillary Clinton will be that president".

"Mr. Band called the arrangement 'unorthodox", Trump said.

"She speaks very badly of Putin, and I don't think that's smart", Trump told a crowd of thousands, noting that Russian Federation has nuclear weapons.

"Look, she's the first lady", he told ABC News.

First Lady Michelle Obama has appeared for the first time during this presidential election race with Hillary Clinton, whom she called "my girl".

The event will bring together two women who are a study in contrasts.

Clinton, herself a former first lady, also acknowledged the special pressures Obama has faced.

Mrs. Obama largely steered clear and enjoyed quieter, modest success.
