Here's Five Things.

Brown Should Focus on Economy To Beat Warren, Local Republicans Say: Republican Sen. Scott Brown should focus on the economy during the final stretch of his campaign to fend off Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren's rise in the polls: that's the main finding of this week's Red Commonwealth survey of influential Massachusetts Republicans. Three polls by three separate polling organizations showing Warren ahead of Brown—but barely—were released early last week.

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren should focus on Sen. Scott Brown's Republican affiliation and continue to tie him to the national GOP during the final stretch of his campaign: that's the main finding of this week's Blue Commonwealth survey of influential Massachusetts Democrats.

ACLU Looks to Probe License Plate-Reading Cameras: Police cruiser-mounted surveillance cameras are intended to scan license plates to detect drivers with outstanding warrants and stolen or unregistered vehicles, but if they're used for other purposes they could be violating privacy rights, according to the American Civil Liberties Union. And the ACLU is looking to find out if that's happening. The organization submitted a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Boston, requesting under the Freedom of Information Act that national law enforcement organizations turn over their records on information collected by the cameras, known as Automatic License Plate Readers.

Weather: Rain is expected today, mostly after 10 a.m., according to the National Weather Service. Highs are expected in the low 60s. There's a 50 percent chance of rain Saturday and a 40 percent chance Sunday.

The moderators need to ask about Warren practicing law in MA without ever having got an MA law license. They also need to ask her when her New Jersey law license became inactive and why in the middle of the campaign she abruptly resigned from her New Jersey law license. Warren said in a radio interview that her NJ law license had been inactive "for years and years." The Texas Bar this week said that Warren's law license there had been inactive since 1992. If Warren's license was indeed inactive for years and years, that would mean she was practicing law without ANY ACTIVE LAW LICENSE.
