Trump and Clinton Enter the Homestretch: The Latest Updates
It’s Wednesday, October 19—the election is now less than three weeks away. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will square off in Las Vegas tonight, as polls show Clinton widening her lead. We’ll bring you the latest updates from the trail, as events unfold.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will take to the stage in Las Vegas later for the final debate in an increasingly bitter race for the US presidency.
Polls show Mr Trump is losing in key battleground states after facing a slew of sexual assault allegations.

Most Americans will cast their votes on 8 November.
Millions are expected to tune into the third and final debate at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas which gets under way at 21:00 EDT (01:00 GMT) and will be moderated by Fox News journalist Chris Wallace.
The two candidates will discuss six topics: national debt and health and social benefits, immigration, the economy, the Supreme Court, foreign flashpoints and their fitness to be president.
