Libya's impact on the election: "Benghazi is the most important issue in the election," says Giuliani

Poll after poll has shows that voters overwhelmingly say the economy is the most important issue to them. However, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says the deadly attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya "may be the most important thing in today's election" calling the president's handling of the situation incompetent.

Fair or is the mayor going too far?

OutFront tonight: Fmr. New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

Watching "Ohio's Nightmare Scenario": Ohio Secretary of State confident there will be a clear winner on Election Day

A "nightmare scenario" in Ohio could happen if this election is as close as predicted, and it all comes down to the Buckeye state. In fact, we could be waiting up to a month for the winner to be called.

Here's why:

  • The state is expecting a high number of provisional ballots to be cast– more than 200,000, which is about the same as Obama's margin of victory here in 2008.
  • Provisional ballots are used when a voter's eligibility is questioned - either because of a name change, new address, or because the voter requested an absentee ballot but didn't use it.
  • By law, those provisional ballots along with overseas and military ballots are not counted until November 17th at the earliest, with a final tally due on December 7.
  • But even then, it might not be over. If the two candidates are within a quarter percent of each other, an automatic recount is triggered.

The man responsible for overseeing the whole process is Ohio's Secretary of State, Jon Husted.
