^White House reimposes oil, shipping and banking sanctions on Iran with limited international support<

USIRAN-SANCTIONS-1ST-LEDE:LA — The Trump administration announced plans Friday to reimpose sweeping sanctions on Iran's shipping, banking and oil industries and vowed "severe consequences" against any country or company that violates them, a move that has roiled relations with U.S. allies.

The aggressive array of sanctions will go into effect Monday, a day before the midterm election and six months after President Donald Trump withdrew from the landmark Iran nuclear accord.

Unlike the global coalition that forced Iran to abandon its nascent nuclear program in 2015, the White House has struggled to gain broad diplomatic support for its decision to slap back all the U.S. sanctions that were lifted as part of the disarmament deal.

^Judge paves way for discovery in lawsuit accusing Trump of violating the Constitution<

^TRUMP-LAWSUIT:NY—<A federal judge in Maryland on Friday struck down President Donald Trump's latest request to throw out a lawsuit charging he's violating the Constitution by doing business with foreign governments while in office, paving the way for a potentially explosive discovery process.

Judge Peter Messitte, of the U.S. District Court of Maryland, denied for a third time an argument from Trump's attorneys that the suit doesn't have legal standing and would pose an undue burden on his duties as president.

^Mail bomb suspect Cesar Sayoc agrees to remain jailed and be moved to New York<

PACKAGES-THREATS:FL — Mail bombing suspect Cesar Sayoc meekly agreed to remain jailed and to be transferred to New York to face federal criminal charges at a court hearing in Miami on Friday morning.

Sayoc, dressed in khaki jail scrubs over a beige T-shirt, appeared calm and collected as he was during his first court appearance earlier this week. Seated in the jury box, he chatted with a deputy U.S. marshal before his attorneys arrived and the hearing began.

"Yes, sir," Sayoc said in a hoarse voice when the judge asked if he understood what he was doing.

^Some veterans say Trump is politicizing military by sending troops to border days before election<

IMMIGRANTS-CARAVAN-TROOPS-VETERANS:LA — After President Donald Trump ordered more than 5,000 U.S. troops to the southwest border days before the midterm election to intercept what he called an "invasion" of migrants, retired Marine Col. David Lapan decided he could not stay silent.

"The idea that a group of poor people from Central America, most of whom are women and children, pose some kind of threat to the national security of the United States is ridiculous," Lapan said in an interview. "It's a misuse of active duty forces."

^Q&A: Can Trump stop asylum-seekers?<

IMMIGRANTS-CARAVAN-ASYLUM-QA:LA — President Donald Trump is poised to issue an executive order next week aimed at stopping a caravan of thousands of Central American migrants crossing Mexico toward the United States, many with plans to claim asylum.

In a speech Thursday, Trump provided few specifics about the order but vowed to prevent applicants who are "coached" by attorneys from remaining in the United States while their "fraudulent or meritless asylum claims" are processed.

But that is likely to prove difficult. Here is some background on the asylum process and the obstacles Trump faces.

^Supreme Court to decide on 40-foot cross: Is it a war memorial or an official display of religion?<

SCOTUS-CROSS:LA — The Supreme Court announced Friday it will hear its first religion case with new Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh and decide whether a 40-foot cross that sits at a busy public intersection is a memorial to the war dead or an official endorsement of religion.

For decades, the justices have been closely split over the constitutionality of religious symbols on public property.

^King flares up at question about white nationalism: 'I knew you were an ambusher'<

^IOWAHOUSE-KING:CON—<Amid escalating criticism for his incendiary rhetoric, Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King flared up at a campaign event Thursday after a member of the public asked a question about his meeting with members of an extreme right-wing party in Europe.

"Do you identify as a white supremacist? Then why did you meet with a white supremacist organization in Austria?" a questioner said at a candidate forum at the state's chamber of commerce office, the Des Moines Register reported.

"Stop it," King fumed, his voice breaking. "You're done."

^Democrats appear poised to take control of House, Trump acknowledges at W.Va. rally<

MIDTERMS-TRUMP-WVA:CON — President Donald Trump acknowledged at a Friday rally in West Virginia that Democrats appear poised to take control of the House.

"Could happen, could happen. Don't worry about it," he said. "I'll just figure it out," he added, saying that is how he has operated "my whole life."

^Obama touts Gillum and Nelson, warns voters 'character of the country' is on the line<

MIDTERMS-OBAMA-FLA:WA — He never mentioned him by name, but former President Barack Obama made it clear Friday at a rally in Miami that by electing Andrew Gillum governor of Florida, the state can deliver a blow to President Donald Trump.

Days away from an election that could complicate his successor's chances at re-election or make it easier for him to win a second term, Obama insisted that nothing less than American democracy — and Florida's eroding shorelines — are on the line in Tuesday's election.

^Republican campaign money stretched thin as the party battles on unexpected fronts<

MIDTERMS-GOP-MONEY:LA — Reactionary culture warrior is not an image that has typically been associated with Rep. John Faso, an understated Chamber of Commerce favorite who represents an expansive district in an economically struggling part of upstate New York.

He's the kind of Republican who met President Donald Trump's recent enthusiastic endorsement tweet with ambivalence. "I didn't know it was coming," he said. "You know, it is what it is."

In politics, though, desperate times call for desperate marketing.

So far, the Republican side has spent about $10.4 million. It may not be enough.

^Parkland students captivated nation, but will their message resonate on Election Day?<

MIDTERMS-PARKLAND:LA — They've held hundreds of rallies including a massive gathering on the National Mall, appeared with Trevor Noah and other late-night television hosts and challenged elected officials to face-to-face debate.

But nine months after the teenage students from Parkland, Fla., were thrust to the fore of America's daily political discourse following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, their calls for gun control, and for registering and turning out young voters, have been largely overtaken by the nation's daily crush of controversies.

^Grassroots have grown deeper since Trump and now comes the hard part<

^MIDTERMS-GRASSROOTS:CON—<First there was the shock of Donald Trump's election. Then came the marches and protests. Next came the outraged phone calls to Congress.

Now comes the hard part: Getting people elected.

For many liberal activist groups that have come on the scene in the last two years, this final hurdle is no small thing. After all, even in the best of times, Democrats have struggled in nonpresidential years to turn out voters or raise money for candidates. But in the last few months, groups like Indivisible, Swing Left and Flippable, among a host of others, have sought to change that, and are now coordinating efforts to put Democrats in control of Congress.

^In these Southern California suburbs, a duel for key vote: Asian-Americans<

CALIFCONGRESS-ASIANVOTERS:LA — For decades, Asian-Americans in this district, a tri-county slice of suburbia built on the immigrant American dream, have supported their Republican congressman, a loyalty born from years of attendance at Buddhist temple ribbon-cuttings and Lunar New Year celebrations.

Now Democrat Gil Cisneros is hoping to win a large share of their votes despite the fact that his opponent, Republican Young Kim, is a Korean-American immigrant and former longtime liaison to the Asian community for the retiring Rep. Ed Royce.

"Just because I may be Latino and my opponent may be Asian, we're not going to cede certain demographics for that reason," said Cisneros, 47. "They want the same thing everybody else does — they want health care, they want immigration reform, they want to make sure their kids are safe when they're in school."

^Florida cops found pipe bomb suspect sleeping in van weeks before arrest<

PACKAGES-THREATS-POLICE:FL — Seven weeks before Democratic leaders across the country started to receive pipe bombs, Boca Raton police encountered the man later suspected of sending them.

Police received a call that a man was sleeping in a white van outside an L.A. Fitness gym, at 4950 Technology Way. Officers approached Cesar Altieri Sayoc Jr. before 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 1.

Video from a police body camera shows two officers talking with Sayoc as he sat in the van — but never looking into the back of it.

^Voting rights advocates eye Georgia, where close governor's race could turn on who gets to vote<

GA-VOTING:LA — For years, voting rights advocates have been fighting new state laws and rules that make it harder for some people to register to vote or to cast a ballot.

This year, their fight is focused on Georgia and its race for governor.

"Georgia is ground zero this cycle," said Wendy R. Weiser, a lawyer at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University.

While Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate, formerly led a project that registered new voters in Georgia, Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate and current secretary of state, led a state drive to remove hundreds of thousands of infrequent voters from the rolls.

^'Today we were left alone.' Father grieves after daughter killed in front of twin sister, young nieces<

CHICAGO-VIOLENCE-WOMANKILLED:TB — Maira Coronel spent Halloween trick-or-treating on Chicago's Northwest Side with her two little nieces and her twin sister, the girls' mother.

Their evening of candy collecting had just wrapped up and they were in their car near Hanson Park when a masked gunman jumped into the back seat, where the two children, just 1 and 2 years old, sat.

He told Maira's sister to drive and demanded cash. They handed over $40, according to police and relatives.

But when he demanded their cellphones, Maira Coronel refused. The robber shot her twice in the head, got out of the car and took off down Belden Avenue, police said.

^Nevada likely to appeal huge verdict over busing psychiatric patients out of state, official says<

NEV-MENTALPATIENTS:SA — The state of Nevada will likely appeal a jury verdict that it must pay $250,000 to scores of people it put on Greyhound buses after discharging them from a mental health hospital, officials said Friday.

A Sacramento Bee investigation in 2013 found that Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital purchased bus tickets for roughly 1,500 patients after discharge over a five-year period, sending them to California and other states across the country. Some of the patients, The Bee documented, became homeless and disappeared after their bus trips. Some died tragically. Some committed serious crimes in their new cities.

GATESFOUNDATION-SAUDI-CHARITY:SE — A month after the death of a prominent Saudi journalist, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has cut ties with a charity founded by the Saudi leader linked to the murder, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The move to end a partnership between the Gates Foundation and the Saudi-based Misk Foundation, first reported Thursday by Fortune and other outlets, is the latest pullback by a Western organization over the Oct. 2 murder of Jamal Khashoggi, an outspoken critic of the regime and a columnist at The Washington Post.

^What it's like to live with poliolike condition acute flaccid myelitis: one little boy's journey<

MED-AFM-CONDITION:TB — The diagnosis was in, but Jessica Kulakowski still didn't have the answers, so she started scouring the internet to find out why her son's cold had left his right arm virtually lifeless.

Online, she found case studies but nothing definitive about why her then 1-year-old boy, Chase, contracted the rare polio-like condition known as acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM. The condition, in the news as a spate of new cases have made headlines in Illinois and beyond, affects mostly children and causes muscles to atrophy, leaving some bedridden with paralysis and unable to breathe on their own. Medical experts have in some cases linked the syndrome to an enterovirus, which causes the common cold and other respiratory illnesses, but it's not believed to be contagious.

Two years after her son's diagnosis, questions linger for the Northwest Indiana mom who worries anew each time the toddler complains of an ache or has the sniffles: Could this be another complication related to AFM?

^Resorts in Jamaica are facing a 'historic' sexual assault problem<

JAMAICA-RESORTS-ASSAULT:DE — In a dark laundry room at a Jamaican Sandals resort, pinned to the floor by a hotel lifeguard, a Michigan teenage girl lay paralyzed with fear as the man bit her lip and raped her, violently robbing her virginity.

When her mother found her after the assault, trembling and holding herself in a hallway, the 17-year-old couldn't speak. She could only point to a metal door.

Behind the door, her friend was being gang-raped by three resort lifeguards.

This is the Jamaica that the U.S. State Department has repeatedly warned tourists about. This is the island paradise that the government says has a pervasive sexual assault problem, the place where two Detroit women were raped in September, and an estimated one American is raped each month.

Over the last seven years, 78 U.S. citizens have been raped in Jamaica according to State Department statistics from 2011-17.
