On Monday it was Sen. Elizabeth Warren's turn to join her fellow Democrats in cranking up the heat on Republican members of the Senate, who have become targets in the closing days of the campaign.
Addressing an enthusiastic outdoor rally on a crisp New England autumn day, Warren had plenty of barbs for Republican Donald Trump. But the Massachusetts Democrat also tore into the state's Republican incumbent, Sen. Kelly Ayotte, with unusual ferocity, NBC News reported.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren warned Republican nominee Donald Trump that "nasty women" will come out in droves to help send Hillary Clinton to the White House.
Warren was joining Clinton at a rally Monday in Manchester, New Hampshire. Warren is picking up on Trump calling of Clinton "such a nasty woman" during last week's final debate.
"Get this Donald: nasty women are smart, nasty women are tough, and nasty women vote," she said.
"On Nov. 8, we nasty woman are going to march our nasty feet to cast our nasty votes to get you out of our lives forever," Warren added.

The woman known only as "Jackie" who's at the center of a discredited Rolling Stone article said in a taped deposition that she told the truth about being gang raped at the University of Virginia — as she believed it at the time, NBC News reported.
The 10 jurors in a university administrator's defamation suit against the magazine heard the woman's videotaped deposition for the first time Monday in U.S. District Court in Charlottesville, Va.
In the deposition, which was recorded in April, "Jackie" repeatedly answers "I don't know" to lawyers' questions about the 2014 article by Sabrina Rubin Erdely, in which she alleged that she was repeatedly assaulted at a fraternity house.

Twitter is planning another round of layoffs within the next week, according to a report from Bloomberg Technology, which cited sources familiar with the matter.
The San Francisco-based social media company may lay off about 300 workers, about 8 percent of its workforce, the same percentage it cut last year when co-founder Jack Dorsey took over as CEO, the Bloomberg report said.
An announcement about the job cuts may come before Twitter releases its third-quarter earnings report on Thursday, one of the sources told Bloomberg. The company declined to comment.

Baluchistan's top health official, Noorul Haq, said at least 116 people were wounded — mostly police trainees and some paramilitary troops.
Major General Sher Afgan, chief of the paramilitary Frontier Corps, told reporters Tuesday that the attackers appeared to be in contact with handlers in Afghanistan. He said the attackers belonged to the banned Lashker-e-Jhangvi Al-Almi group, an Islamic militant group affiliated with al-Qaida.
President Barack Obama entertained Jimmy Kimmel's audience with some of the mean tweets sent his way, beginning with one sent by Donald Trump in August when he said "President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States."
Obama's reply: "Really? Well, @realDonaldTrump, at least I will go down as a president."
The president appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" during the middle of his three-day visit to Nevada and California, where he is campaigning and raising money for presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates. The segment contained a mix of humor and serious talk about the current election.

A defiant Donald Trump blamed his campaign struggles on "phony polls" from the "disgusting" media on Monday, fighting to energize his most loyal supporters as his path to the presidency shrinks.
With just 14 days until the election, the Republican nominee campaigned in battleground Florida as his team conceded publicly as well as privately that crucial Pennsylvania may be slipping away to Democrat Hillary Clinton. That would leave him only a razor-thin pathway to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House on Nov. 8.
The ex-wife of former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle is suing the fast food company for not acting on its alleged knowledge of Fogle's sexual interest in children. Katie McLaughlin's suit, filed Monday in Indiana, alleges Subway was told about Fogle's interest in having sex with children as early as 2004 — years before they began dating — but did nothing to stop it and continued having Fogle promote the brand for a decade. "The safety of kids was not a priority but Subway's bottom line was," the suit argues. "Subway ignored its corporate responsibility and provided a platform for [Fogle] to prey on children by sending him to elementary schools all over the country." A representative for Subway did not immediately have a comment for this article.
