(AP-WASHINGTON) President Donald Trump says he’s hoping a supporter will be fine after a medical incident at his final rally ahead of Today’s midterm election. Trump paused his stump speech for roughly five minutes after being alerted to a medical emergency in the crowd of thousands. As emergency workers made their way to the woman, Trump said: “Take your time. Take your time. Relax.” After several minutes the audience broke into the hymn “Amazing Grace.” Resuming his speech after the supporter was taken out of the arena, Trump said of the singing, “That was beautiful.”
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) Maniers aren’t just selecting candidates on Election Day.

The referendum has drawn strong criticism from home care agencies, health care and business associations, and all three gubernatorial candidates. Critics say the referendum’s ambiguous language could mean higher taxes for all families earning over $128,400. The four borrowing proposals would mitigate wastewater pollution, upgrade transportation infrastructure and fund improvements at colleges and universities.
