Hillary Clinton and Donald Turmp reunited with their families on the campaign trail Monday evening at a pair of swing-state rallies that marked the beginning of the end of their respective presidential campaigns. Clinton met up with her husband Bill and her daughter Chelsea in Philadelphia. They were joined at the outdoor event near Independence Hall by President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and musicians Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi. 'Thank you for coming out for one last rally before election day tomorrow,' Clinton said at the Pennsylvania rally and concert. 'I am so happy to be finishing this campaign with my husband and my daughter by my side.' Trump, his adult children - Tiffany, Eric, Don Jr. and Ivanka - their spouses - Lara, Vanessa and Jared - and his VP pick, Mike Pence, campaigned in Manchester, New Hampshire. The White House candidate's wife Melania and young son Barron were noticeably absent from the family portrait. 'I've been reading about Hillary Clinton having all these surrogates,' Trump said at his rally, when a laser light show and fog machines were switched off. 'I had the best surrogates of all,' he asserted, meaning his kids. 'They were all over.' The latest poll of polls on Monday gave Clinton a four-point lead over Trump and predicted she'd get 46 per cent of the vote, compared to his predicted 42 per cent.
And they're off! Hillary Clinton claims the first victory of Election Day, beating Donald Trump in New Hampshire's tiny Dixville Notch 4-2 - with one protest voter writing in MITT ROMNEY
The 2016 US election has officially begun, with Hillary Clinton coming out on top in the first results to come back - the nine-person community of Dixville Notch, New Hampshire. Clinton came out with just under half the vote, as a whopping four people picked her to win. Trump did half as well with two, while Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson racked up one.

It was Hillary Clinton's night in Philadelphia Monday, but it was Michelle and Barack Obama who stole the show. The outgoing First Couple stepped up before a packed-out crowd of thousands in Independence Square, outside the very building where the Declaration of Independence was signed, to reflect on the past eight years and to look forward to a promised future of hope and prosperity - pending a Clinton presidency. The crowd had already been warmed up by music from Bruce Springsteen (bottom-right) and Jon Bon Jovi, and a speech by Bill Clinton, but even that build-up wasn't enough for the emotional heights that Michelle Obama reached in her time on the podium.
Huma is brought back in from the cold: Abedin is spotted on Clinton campaign plane just one day after the FBI cleared her boss of second email investigation
Longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin finally made it back onto her boss's campaign plane for one of the final legs of Clinton's historic presidential run. Reporters spotted Clinton's loyal aide aboard the plane late Monday night after Clinton's campaign rally in Philadelphia. Bill Clinton and singer Jon Bon Jovi also were on board. Abedin was effectively grounded after October 28, when FBI Director James Comey announced the stunning news that the bureau was taking another look at Clinton's emails. Then on Monday, just two days before Election Day, Comey dropped another bombshell, revealing that after a review of additional emails, the FBI was standing by its July decision - not to recommend criminal charges against the former Secretary of State. The campaign never said if Abedin was being kept off for reasons having to do with optics, or other reasons.

Melanie Liverpool-Turner, 30, (pictured top, at the scene, and bottom right) has been charged with murder for pushing Connie Watton, 49, in front of a moving subway train in New York City on Monday. The two women, who police said did not know each other, were both standing on the downtown platform of the 1 train at the Times Square-42nd Street station (bottom left, authorities on the scene after the incident). Watton was shoved onto the tracks at around 1.20pm and pronounced dead on the scene shortly afterward, a police spokeswoman told Daily Mail Online. A Metropolitan Transportation Authority worker said Liverpool-Turner looked 'proud' as she was led away by police officers moments later. A motive has not been established, but Liverpool-Turner told authorities she pushed a German college student to her death last month, even though police concluded the 19-year-old had committed suicide. Liverpool-Turner underwent a psychiatric exam at Bellevue Hospital, and police sources told the New York Post she has a history of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
