The Director of National Intelligence is warning the public that Iran and Russia are trying to influence the 2020 election. John Ratcliffe says Iran sent spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters. He said both countries have obtained voter registration information. Intelligence officials haven't seen similar actions by Russia.       Former President Barack Obama is coming down on President Trump for his response to the coronavirus pandemic. Obama spoke at a rally in Philadelphia Wednesday night and said Trump moaned that the crises made him "go back to work." He added that the country might not be in as bad of shape if he had been doing his job.        Over 42-million people are casting their ballots this year. That's the number reported with just under two weeks until election day. The U.S. Elections Project says the majority of ballots cast have been mailed in, with the rest casted at early voting sites.       Almost 31 states are now in the red zone for coronavirus cases.

The pontiff made his views known in the documentary "Francesco." He called "homosexuals have the right to be a part of the family."        A Sonoma County wine trade group is predicting around 30-percent of this year's winegrape crop was spoiled by wildfire smoke. That represents a loss of more than 150-million-dollars in Sonoma County alone. A separate survey reports four counties suffered an estimated total loss of almost half-billion-dollars.
