Clinton, Trump prepare for final debate in Las Vegas

By Phil Archer - Reporter

LAS VEGAS - With Election Day just three weeks away, Hillary Clinton will take the stage in Las Vegas Wednesday night leading in the national polls.

It will be Donald Trump’s best chance to try to turn that around in a race that’s come to be characterized by negative headlines and personal attacks.

Months of planning have gone into this final debate.

Some 6,000 to 7,000 journalists are expected to be in Nevada to cover it.

The debate topics will include foreign policy, the Supreme Court and the economy.

The candidates are preparing for another verbal free for all.

“Tomorrow night’s going to be interesting," Trump said.

Trump again claimed the national election is rigged on Tuesday.

“It’s a rigged system, but you have to say we figured it out, we figured it out,” Trump said.

The suggestion prompted a rebuke from President Barack Obama.

“Whenever things are going badly for you and you lose you start blaming somebody else, then you don’t have what it takes to run up the score,” Obama said.

Meanwhile, more questions have been raised about the Clinton's emails.

In this increasingly bitter campaign, the emails, charges of influence peddling, Trump’s alleged sexual assaults are all fair game for what could be the hardest fought face-off of the race.
