Adelson makes his case for backing GOP

(CNN) – The billionaire casino mogul who pumped millions into pro-Republican efforts this year - most notably groups backing Newt Gingrich and then Mitt Romney's bids for the White House - penned an op-ed on the eve of Election Day explaining why he is backing the GOP.

Though media-shy in the past, Sheldon Adelson has been more open recently. He wrote in The Wall Street Journal Sunday night that he was raised a Democrat, "typical of the Jews of Boston in the 1930s and '40s," but switched not because he earned his way into wealth, but because the Democratic Party "has changed in ways that no longer fit with someone of my upbringing."

CNN Poll of Polls: Ohio a close contest on eve of election

(CNN) – A new CNN Poll of Polls on Monday indicates the race in Ohio–perhaps the most decisive battleground this presidential cycle–is locked in a statistical dead heat.

The poll shows President Barack Obama at 50% and Mitt Romney at 47% in Ohio, one day before the election. Those numbers are an average of three Ohio polls of likely voters conducted in the last week: Ohio Poll/University of Cincinnati (Oct. 31-Nov. 4); CNN/ORC International (Oct. 30-Nov. 1) and NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist (Oct. 31-Nov.1). The Poll of Polls does not have a sampling error.

Polls: Tight race in Massachusetts Senate race

(CNN) - As the hours wind down until Election Day voters cast their ballots, two new polls in the battle for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts indicate an increasingly tight race.

The University of Massachusetts/Lowell-Boston Herald poll showed Republican Sen. Scott Brown with a one point advantage over Democrat Elizabeth Warren, 49% to Warren's 48%, while a survey from the Western New England University Polling Institute showed Warren up four points over Brown, 50%-46%.

McCain: Veterans' anger over Benghazi could affect election

(CNN) – With less than 24 hours to go until Election Day, Republican senator and former presidential nominee John McCain said he's seen unprecedented anger from veterans over the September attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya that could influence Tuesday's election.

"I've been traveling all over the country and veterans are angry. They're angry; they're upset; they don't trust Barack Obama. There's 1.6 million of them in Florida, for example. I think they could have an impact on this election," said McCain appearing on CNN's Starting Point Monday.

Crowley: It's the losing campaigns I remember most

Washington (CNN) – We were somewhere down South in the back half of October 1996. I believe we were in a theater. I remember thinking how terrible the lighting was, how small and deflated the crowd.

I remember the look on the candidate's face.
Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole was on stage with Heather Whitestone, the first deaf Miss America. She signed, "I love you" to the crowd. Then he signed it, too.
