President Trump wants to give the American people additional COVID relief and stimulus checks. Speaking with reporters, Trump blamed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for holding up the process. The President said she is only interested in bailing out Democrat-run states.       Former President Barack Obama is in Florida campaigning for Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden. Speaking at a drive-up rally in Orlando, Obama said his former VP will lead the U.S. out of "these dark times." He accused Trump of turning his own White House into a COVID hotspot and ripped his handling of the pandemic.       Voters in battleground Wisconsin will have to have their ballots in by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. The Supreme Court is refusing to extend the deadline after Democrats wanted an extra six days to count ballots postmarked by November 3rd. They blamed the pandemic for making it harder to send and receive ballots on time.       The Supreme Court will consider whether they want to take up a case involving an abortion law in Mississippi on Friday. Mississippi's Attorney General wants the high court to take a look at a decision by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. That court ruled the state law banning almost all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy interferes with a woman's right to have an abortion.       The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is partnering with Google to predict the weather. The tech company will use artificial intelligence to help with forecasts.
