The United States marked more than 8 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 Friday, leaving only three counties untouched by the virus nationwide. And case numbers are again on the rise.

It joins the Cameron Peak Fire, which is the largest in state history, and has burned more than 300 square miles since mid-August.

16 days to go

President Donald Trump is doubling down on the campaign trail in the last two weeks of the 2020 election, despite a resurgence of COVID-19 and his own bout with the virus. His toughest hurdle to securing a second term? Many voters have already made up their minds. As such, both Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden are working hard to win over crucial older voters and other key blocs. Still, Biden has taken a double-digit lead in several national polls and widened margins in battleground states. Additionally, more than 26 million people have voted early, and Democrats have a major advantage in mail-in voting.

  • Ex-CIA Director John Brennan says he hopes Trump gets "soundly spanked by the American electorate."

Michigan governor says Trump 'lock 'em all up' chant incites terrorism

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer accused President Donald Trump of inciting domestic terrorism during a national TV appearance Sunday, in her strongest criticism of Trump to date.

Rays punch ticket to World Series, await opponent

The Tampa Bay Rays are off to the World Series after holding back the Houston Astros to win the American League pennant, giving the small-market franchise its second ever appearance in the Fall Classic and its first since 2008. "We’re not the most popular team out there. We don’t have too many household names that a ton of people are going to know," said Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier.
