WASHINGTON, Nov 7 - Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump today scrambled to make their final pitch to voters in the high-stakes US presidential polls that will see the election of America�s first woman president or the sensational win of a political outsider.
As the countdown began for the most bitter and divisive presidential election in the US history, Democratic candidate Clinton, 69, and her running mate Tim Kaine�s campaign received a last-minute boost by news that the FBI had found no new troublesome emails in a review of the former secretary of state�s private server and she will not face criminal charges.
�Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton,� FBI Director James B Comey told Congress leaders in a letter after a renewed probe into her use of private email server as secretary of state following a cache of recently discovered e-mails.
Seeking to become the first female president of America, Clinton, relieved by the latest development, will end her campaign with a rally in the battleground state of North Carolina at midnight local time.
Republican candidate Trump will close his campaign with an event in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a state where he is hoping to pull off a huge surprise.
Trump, 70, called the vote tomorrow a final chance to turn back foreign forces menacing American identity, while Clinton said the country�s long journey toward equality for women and minorities was at risk of being reversed in a day�s balloting.
Trump claimed that he is leading in battleground States and is headed to win the White House race, much to the surprise of the pollsters and the media. � PTI
