but now they're looking ahead to the big rally tomorrow, a final passing of the torch. the obamas and clintons, side-by-side, taking place on philadelphia's independence mall. >> cecilia vega, in ohio. thank you. donald trump did not directly address the fbi announcement, but his campaign did and quickly. tom llamas is in michigan tonight. >> reporter: tonight, with news of the fbi's announcement breaking, donald trump's jet parked on a runway in minnesota. when he finally emerged, trump sticking to the script. >> real change also means restoring honesty to government. first thing you should do is get rid of clinton. >> reporter: no mention of director comey's latest bombshell. but trump's campaign advisors now attacking him. >> i thought, he's mishandled the investigation from the beginning. and this proves it again. >> reporter: newt gingrich tweeting, comey must be under

important. and donald trump eyeing another big state tonight? >> yes, in the rust belt, wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania, but no state more than michigan. they see signs they could win in michigan. and it's clear the clinton campaign is concerned about michigan as well. that could be, could be trump's ace in the hand. >> jon karl, thanks. and jon, just two days to go. election night in america, our coverage begins with "world news tonight." then at 7:00 p.m. eastern, i'll join george and the entire powerhouse political team, we'll be here all night long. and we turn to other news this sunday night. the suspect in a horrific kidnapping case linked to at least seven murders now by authorities. todd kohlhepp, brought back to his property by police. searchers finding multiple bodies buried there. police say he's now confessed to several killings. eva pilgrim is now in south carolina. >> reporter: this man returning to court, authorities say after he was brought into custody accused of kidnapping and chaining up a woman. todd kohlhepp with a bombshell confession.
