State House Minority Leader THEMIS KLARIDES

GOP LEADERS CONDEMN UNION AD AIMED AT DR. WILLIAM PETIT Flanked by friends, family and supporters on Wednesday morning, Republican state House candidate and Cheshire home invasion survivor William Petit condemned a digital ad funded by a union-based political action group that linked him with Donald Trump's "attack on women and families." "I'm just flabbergasted and appalled that anyone would stoop this low," Petit, who lost his wife and two daughters in the brutal 2007 attack that garnered national headlines, said at a news conference held in front of his Plainville home. The ad, paid for by Labor United for Connecticut, is one of several digital ads targeting about a dozen Republican legislative candidates across the state. Campaign finance filings show the group paid $2,112 for online ads against Petit.

Fox News Radio's RACHEL SUTHERLAND - live from Washington

THE LATEST FOX POLLS With less than two weeks to go, the race for the White House has narrowed as Hillary Clinton now has a three-point advantage over Donald Trump. That’s within the margin of error of the national Fox News Poll of likely voters. Clinton is ahead of Trump by 44-41 percent. Another one-in-ten back a third-party candidate and four percent are undecided. Last week she was up by six points (45-39 percent) and before that by seven (45-38 percent). The poll, released Wednesday, finds Clinton leads 49-44 percent in the head-to-head matchup. That 5-point advantage is at the edge of the error margin. She was up 7 a week ago (49-42 percent). Trump is helped by increased backing among independents and greater strength of support: 68 percent of those backing Trump support him “strongly,” compared to 61 percent for Clinton.
