on the one hand you got to feel kind of sorry about the kind of campaign he's run, don't you? >> a lot of stuff has come out since you vote, can you change your vote to donald trump. >> with almost 27 million votes already cast, the candidates' closing arguments heat up as time is short. fuel prices at the gas pump and even the airport are about to go a whole lot higher following this deadly explosion. >> is california on the brink toward pushing the rest of the nation towards legalized marijuana? >> some of the biggest stars came out to honor our bravest and our families. >> we are headed to a game seven showdown "early today" starts right now. we begin with breaking news this morning. two iowa police officers have
been targeted and killed in what authorities say were ambush-style attacks. >> we have another caller advising there's been an officer shot at 70th and aurora. >> a medic. >> we have rifle rounds out here. and a magazine. it was a rifle for sure. >> one officer was found dead around 2:00 a.m. in urbandale, a suburb of des moines. the second officer's body was located within the city limits. >> in all appearances, it looks just like that, that these officers were ambushed. on the surface right now, like i said, we're just a few hours into this. it doesn't look like there was any interaction between these officers and whoever the coward is that shot them while they sat in their cars. that's the best we've got that we can explain the scene right now. >> they have doubled up their officers to better protect them. the investigation and hunt for the killer or killers continues right now. this is added to the list of the
fallen officers from dallas, baton rouge and now here. >> incredibly heartbreaking to see something like this happen out of des moines. good morning, everyone, i'm ayman mohyeldin. >> and i'm frances rivera. >> we have less than a week to go until election day. both candidates are making their closing arguments in battleground across the country. hillary clinton unleashing a fresh offensive against dominican republic, if trying to rally a key demographic, that of women. >> on the one hand, you got to feel kind of sorry about the kind of campaign he's running, don't you? he sure has spent a lot of time demeaning, degrading, insulting and assaulting women. he does not have the temperament to be our commander in chief. so think how you'll feel if there was something you could have done but didn't on november the 9th, if this doesn't work.
>> and she made these intense comments after a protester in florida disrupted her rally in florida calling her husband a rapist. >> you know, i am sick and tired of negative, dark divisive dangerous vision and behavior of people who support donald trump. >> but clinton also had plenty of help with surrogates fanning out across the country, attempting to make their best effort to move past the fbi inquiries into the clinton e-mail practices. in fact the clinton camp says supporters have donated over $11 million to her campaign just in the three days since the fbi director james comey announced the bureau's reignited inquiry. meanwhile, donald trump remains on message, he's going after clinton for the recent fbi news tieing her to obamacare, reaching out to disinfected democratic voters who he says may feel buyers remorse. >> this is a message for any
democratic voter who have already cast their ballots for hillary clinton and who are having a bad case of buyer's remorse. in other words, you want to change your vote. a lot of stuff has come out since your vote. so if you live here or in michigan or pennsylvania or minnesota, those four places, you can change your vote to donald trump. we'll make america great again, okay? >> with six days to go, both clinton and trump are spending millions on new ads set to air between now and election day. as of this morning, over 26 million voters have cast their early ballots. that's compared to 13 1/2 million who took part in early voting at this point in 2012. florida alone has seen an increase in 1.8 million votes
this election cycle a. whopping 28% of republicans who voted early in florida voted for hillary clinton. that explains why trump has visited the state of florida more than any other state since his nomination holding events 32 times. ohio, pennsylvania, north carolina and colorado were heavily visited by the republican nominee. as for clinton, florida topped her list as well. same for new york, where her campaign headquarters is located, ohio, pennsylvania, north carolina were among her top visited battleground as well as nevada. so you know the saying, the old one that goes, it ain't over until it's over? it's definitely applicable for the world series. the cubs were able to fend off elimination in game six. this time against hot hitting. it started in the first with chris ryan homer followed up by addison russell two innings later crushing a grand slam to deep center field. he tied a world series record
with 6 rbis on the night. the cubs go on to win 9-3. deciding game 7 is tonight in cleveland. i think the election and the campaign fever may stop for a few hours. >> just for a little bit. >> i think the country is definitely going to be watching this. new fallout this morning following the deadly gas pipeline explosion in california. industry experts predict an uptick in prices. remember that. gas shortages in the east will also impact millions. colonial is the company that owns the pipeline. in addition to gas for cars, they also provide jet fuel to major airports in the northeast and even some u.s. military bases. it stretches from texas to new york covering 40% of the east coast. monday's blast killed one and injured five. a contractor hit the gas line causing the fire triggering the explosion. alabama's governor issued a state of emergency. an investigation is ongoing. overseas for the first time
in two years, iraqi troops have entered the city of mosul despite fierce resistance from isis fighters. the battle is expected to take weeks, possibly even months. nbc's matt bradley joins us live from iraq. matt? >> thanks, a yman. as you know, they have entered into mosul itself, and what they had to look forward to is a blistering fight from isis, probably for the next week or even months, ayman. we're talking about urban warfare. this is the most difficult warfare that any conventional army can face. what we've seen previously, fights in ramadi and fallujah. also, major urban centers. the islamic state put up fierce resistance and they're using all of the tools they have in their tool kit. this is some ugly stuff. we're talking about suicide bombings, defensive works. but in mosul, that's the second largest city in iraq. they're going to be using human
shields. we already know they brought in civilian spy force from some of the villages and towns outside of mosul into the city themselves. they use them to array around themselves. it could be targeted by the coalition and they're going to be putting themselves in the middle of these civilians and daring the coalition to try to attack these civilians. that means they're using a lot of opposition in the incoming forces. it could be weeks before we see isis push back. >> it will be a humanitarian challenge for those making it better. matt bradley for us in erbil. travel season is going to be around the corner. hue does $39 sound for a ticket, particularly from chicago to fort lauderdale. time is short but there are many more deals to tell you about. we've got the details ahead to tell you about. >> i took a quick peek. good deals. worth taking a look. bill karins, the weather is perfect here.

the indians? you have the cubs? >> i know who this guy is going for. >> i want to say the cubs are considered the underdogs. >> it's close. >> tossup. >> what about you? you have to get on the record. >> i know so many people who are indians fans. i'm going that way. we'll see what it caktakes. vladimir putin has put microsoft directly in his cross hairs. and a protestor goes to extremes using heavy equipment and is shot with a taser. find out why. that's next. ext. the fiery tissue left her nose sore and red. so dad slayed the problem with puffs plus lotion, instead. puffs have pillowy softness for dakota's tender nose. with lotion to comfort and soothe when she blows. don't get burned by ordinary tissues. a nose in need deserves puffs, indeed. now get puffs plus lotion in the squeezable softpack.
