TGIF and to my colleagues working on campaigns, that doesn’t apply to you.
With only a couple of day remaining we’ve got the final job numbers before the election. Unemployment went up a tick to 7.9%. Not the 8% that might have pushed some to change their minds at the last minute. All in all, it’s in afterthought in a whirlwind of rhetoric that just about everyone is tired of.
We also had first lady Michelle Obama in Daytona Beach yesterday. Paul Ryan is expected in Panama City on Saturday night, which might be the last we see of VIPs from both campaigns.
Those stories lead your Friday morning political headlines. See you tomorrow.
