PENCE PLANE
A campaign plane carrying Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence skidded off a runway shortly after landing at New York’s LaGuardia Airport Thursday night. The plane stopped at a barrier just feet from a busy highway that runs past the airport. Pence canceled his appearance at a fundraiser at Trump Tower, but he will be back on the campaign trail Friday after making an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America."  Donald Trump was speaking at a rally in Ohio when the plane incident happened, and after telling the crowd everyone was okay, he took the opportunity to again tout his decision to choose Pence as his running mate. 

VOTE 2016
--Speaking in Ohio, Donald Trump questioned why the election was even being held, saying that Hillary Clinton's policies are "so bad." "In just thinking to myself right now, we should just cancel the election and just give it to Trump, right?" he said. "Why are we even having it for? What are we having it for? Her policies are so bad. Boy, do we have a big difference."
--President Barack Obama will hold an evening rally for Clinton in Orlando, along the "I-4 corridor" that's home to large numbers of potentially persuadable voters. White House officials say Obama will be traveling to boost Clinton nearly every day until Election Day.

Doug Nash held his wife Sylvia as her eyes rolled back and she slumped in his arms. Just hours before she had been healthy and happy, he said, but he knew then that his partner of five years was dead. "In my arms. That'll haunt me for the rest of my life," he told ABC News in an interview to be broadcast Friday on "20/20." "The vision of her face, just inches away from mine, and those eyes suddenly de-focusing on mine." Doug said he believes that his wife was poisoned by what a fringe church calls a "miracle cure" for a number of serious diseases -- a chemical solution she took just minutes before suffering the first symptoms that ended in her death in 2009.
