ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The third and final presidential debate, like the second, began without a handshake in Las Vegas on Wednesday. Trump has been damaged recently by several accusations of groping women - which he denies - and concerns about his claims that the election will be rigged against him. The debate at the University of Las Vegas Nevada gives the New York businessman perhaps his best remaining chance to sway the dwindling number of Americans who are still undecided about which way to vote in the Nov. 8 election. For Clinton, who leads national polls and in most of the battleground states where the election will likely be decided, the 90-minute debate is a chance to make a closing argument on why she is best suited to succeed President Barack Obama. Tens of millions of voters are expected to tune in.
