Former President Obama says the upcoming election is the "most important election of our lifetime." Speaking at an event in Philadelphia, Obama asked supporters to vote for Joe Biden and to cast their ballots early. He went on to slam Trump for having to cut a rally in Erie short this week.        A new poll is showing Joe Biden is holding a lead in both Pennsylvania, and Florida. The CNN Poll reports show the former VP with a ten-point advantage over President Trump in Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, Biden is also up four points in Florida. Trump won both states in the 2016 election.        A party-line vote is keeping the Senate Republican stimulus bill from getting the support it needs to advance. The half a trillion-dollar measure fell short of the required 60 votes and only got 51.        A man is now facing capital murder charges after being accused of fatally shooting a Houston police officer.
