    19:45 ET – Kamala Harris says she will get ‘involved’ in Senate hearings on Amy Coney Barrett

    Vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris told reporters traveling with her in North Carolina she would likely meet with President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

    “I’m sure that’s going to happen, we’ll see how it works out …I haven’t made a plan one way or another,” Harris said according to a pool report.

    “I am definitely going to be involved in the hearings and performing my role and responsibility on the Senate Judiciary Committee,” she said.

    Some Democratic senators have said they would not meet with Barrett because they object to her nomination so close to the election. In 2016, Republicans had refused to meet with Obama nominee Merrick Garland.

    19:00 ET – Two-thirds of US voters do not expect to know results on election night

    Most voters believe they will have to wait past election night on November 3 to find out who won the presidential race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, according to a new poll.

    Just 20 percent of voters say they think the winner will be called on election night, while 66 percent expect it to happen sometime later, according to a survey by Politico/Morning Consult.

    The results suggest the public expects to see ballot-counting delays as more ballots than ever are cast by mail because of the coronavirus pandemic.
