This week was the home stretch of the 2016 presidential election. Here’s some headlines you may have missed heading into the first weekend of November:
- The FBI announced that it found emails relating to its investigation of Hillary Clinton on scandal-plagued former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s computer.
- The Chicago Cubs won the World Series this week for the first time in 108 years.
- Iraqi armed forces, supported by the U.S., are attempting to retake the city of Mosul from ISIS forces in what appears to be the latest episode in the protracted Iraq conflict.
- In the final jobs report before the election, the official unemployment rate ticked down to 4.9%, but only after nearly half a million people gave up looking for work altogether.
Until next week.
