Both presidential campaigns await jobs report

BROOKLYN - With Election Day just a few days away, both presidential candidates are campaigning in full swing. Today, both the Republicans and Democrats will be waiting for the release of the October jobs report.

The report is highly anticipated because it is the last one before voters hit the polls. In September, the jobless number decreased from 8.1 percent to 7.8 percent. That is the lowest figure in nearly three years.

President Obama and Republican candidate Gov. Mitt Romney will both be making stops in seven states today through Sunday.
