GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Two topics are likely to come up at tomorrow night's presidential debate: voter fraud and Hillary Clinton's emails. Donald Trump insists that voter fraud poses a significant threat at the polling booths, despite a lack of evidence that it does. And he says FBI records that show an aide for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked the FBI to reduce the classification of an email on her private server shows "collusion" and is "one of the great miscarriages of justice."

WHITE PLAINS, New York (AP) — Hillary Clinton is advancing into states that the Democrats haven't won in decades. Aides say there's a new $2 million push in Arizona, including a campaign stop in Phoenix by first lady Michelle Obama. And an additional $1 million is going into efforts in Missouri and Indiana, both states with competitive Senate races. And Donald Trump's campaign has dramatically expanded its ad buys in seven battleground states and announced plans to launch a $2 million advertising blitz in long-shot Virginia.

KHAZER, Iraq (AP) — Iraqi and Kurdish commanders say they've paused their advance on Mosul, a day after the start of a massive operation to retake the Islamic State-held city. An Iraqi special forces commander says his troops have delayed an advance following a request from Kurdish forces. The large and complex battle for Mosul is expected to last weeks or months. It will involve more than 25,000 troops. The U.S. military is providing air support and playing a supporting role on the ground.

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — An online petition calling for the impeachment of a Montana judge in an incest case involving a 12-year-old girl has been sent to the state's governor and other officials. The man who was charged in the case was sentenced last week to 60 days in jail and a 30-year suspended prison term as part of a plea deal with prosecutors. District Judge John McKeon has defended himself, saying a psychosexual evaluation found that the man could be safely treated and supervised in the community.

WASHINGTON (AP) — First-time buyers may be entering the U.S. home market in greater numbers than industry watchers had assumed. The real estate firm Zillow says nearly half of sales in the past year went to people who were buying their first home. Zillow says most first-time buyers this year were couples in their 30s.
