This marathon of a historic presidential race is racing to a climax. The candidates are crisscrossing the country hitting the battleground states, unleashing their last minute ads, doing rallies, unleashing their ground games to get their voters to the polls, making the GOTV calls.
In the GOP's case its 'suppress the African-American vote', unleash the dirty tricks and the right-wing slime machine. They know as Dr. King famously predicted:
"I can forsee the Negro vote becoming the decisive one in national elections."
