2 BILLION DOLLAR CAMPAIGN:
Good morning I’m Clinton Griffiths. While most of us slept, Election Day 2012 continued well into the night. And while not all races maybe settled, one thing is certain - this campaign season will go down in the record books.
USDA HURRICANE SANDY RESPONSE:

Hurricane Isaac which moved thru Louisiana in late August caused some concern for the sugarcane crop. But apparently the damage was minimal.
While much of the Midwest, Plains and Southeast have wrapped-up harvest this year, parts of the eastern cornbelt are still bringing in this year’s corn crop. And for some farmers, it's been a sloppy mess. Mike Hoffman joins us from the AgDay weather-center with details.
Corn harvest is nearly wrapped up...moving along in record speed. While slightly behind, soybeans are also getting close. As AgDay National Reporter Tyne Morgan tells us, despite this year's drought, farmers in one Indiana county are on track with harvest and set to roll in above average yields.
