The election cycle continues its long, slow march to November 8, but as we approach the big day, the news is starting to come in faster than ever. With that in mind, we鈥檝e pulled together a few of the week鈥檚 biggest stories to catch you up. Read it and weep! (Well, hopefully don鈥檛 weep. But if you gotta, you gotta. Do you, girl; it鈥檚 been a long haul.)

Donald Trump Holds Campaign Rally In Las Vegas

1. Trump visits Mexico鈥 and it does not go great.

On Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump flew to Mexico to meet with president Enrique Pe帽a Nieto. After making the construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border (and having the Mexican government foot the bill) a pillar of his campaign, Donald told press they hadn鈥檛 discussed who would pay for the border wall, which would seem to be an important topic. According to Nieto, that was not the case: He took to Twitter to write (in Spanish), 鈥淎t the start of the conversation with Donald Trump, I made it clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall.鈥 The whole visit was unusual, in that presidential candidates rarely travel to countries with which they have poor relationships. But, y鈥檏now, Donalds gonna Donald.

Hillary Clinton

2. Hillary is really unpopular.

We鈥檝e written before about how Hillary and Donald are the two most-disliked candidates to run for president since people started keeping track of that sort of thing. Since then, Hillary鈥檚 unfavorability rating has gone up to an all-time high. And that鈥檚 not 鈥渁ll-time鈥 over the course of her presidential campaign, but 鈥渁ll-time鈥 as in, over the roughly 25 years she鈥檚 been in the national spotlight. Around 56 percent of those polled said they have an unfavorable view of the possible future president (Donald is still faring worse, at 63 percent). Pretty dismal all around. Remember when a president campaigned on hope and change? Seems so long ago!

Donald Trump

3. Did Donald Trump make up his doctor鈥檚 note?

Because whoever wins the presidency will hold the office for at least four years, it鈥檚 considered important to know that the people running are in good health and unlikely to fall ill (or worse, die) in the middle of their tenure. This is especially true for older candidates, and Donald Trump would, if elected, edge out Ronald Reagan as the oldest president. So is he healthy? According to a recent doctor鈥檚 note, he isn鈥檛 just in good health; he would be 鈥渢he healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.鈥 Strong words! And, according to Atlantic writer and MD James Hamblin, words that make no sense for a trained doctor to write. He goes into detail聽on how and why the note, signed by doctor Harold Bornstein, is nonsensical from a medical perspective. For instance, writing that an exam 鈥渟howed only positive results鈥 would read as good to non-doctors, but doctors are trained, according to Hamblin, 鈥渢o keep medical documentation within a regimented, almost militant set of rhetorical boundaries.鈥 To a doctor, a 鈥減ositive result鈥 on a cancer test would mean the presence of the disease. Hamblin concludes that 鈥渇or linguistic reasons alone, it would shock me if Bornstein wrote this letter,鈥 leaving us to wonder who did write it. Did Donald Trump dictate it to his doctor? For his part, Dr. Bornstein insists he wrote it, but that he did so in just a few minutes while waiting for a car. Curious.

PHILADELPHIA, PA - JULY 28: Outgoing chairperson of the Democratic National Committee Debbie Wasserman Schultz listens to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speak on the fourth day of the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center, July 28, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton received the number of votes needed to secure the party's nomination. An estimated 50,000 people are expected in Philadelphia, including hundreds of protesters and members of the media. The four-day Democratic National Convention kicked off July 25.

4. There are shakeups in Florida鈥檚 primary.

Back in May, Senator and one-time Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio sent out a few tweets assuring us all that he was done with politics. He must have changed his mind since then, because he was on the ballot on Tuesday鈥檚 Florida primary. He won, meaning he鈥檒l be up for re-election in November. Joining him will be Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (pictured above), a congresswoman who had, until just a few months ago, served as head of the Democratic National Committee. She resigned after leaked documents put into question the DNC鈥檚 impartiality during the race between Hillary and Bernie Sanders (they showed an aversion within the party鈥檚 infrastructure to Sanders, an outsider with an unorthodox message), but managed to beat her Sanders-backed primary challenger.

One person who won鈥檛 be on the ballot in November is Angela Corey, the State Attorney who oversaw the trials of both George Zimmerman (who walked after killing Trayvon Martin) and Marissa Alexander (Angela went for a 20-year sentence for Marissa, who fired a warning shot at her abusive husband but did not hurt him). She鈥檚 been called 鈥one of the most reviled prosecutors in Florida鈥 for her pursuit of aggressive sentences, especially for juvenile offenders. Angela lost her primary challenge to Melissa Nelson.

5. Will Arizona hike its minimum wage?

Money is an issue this election season in a way it hasn鈥檛 been in a long time. Specifically, candidates are talking about how unfairly distributed it is. After Seattle voted in 2014 to increase the city鈥檚 minimum wage to $15 and activists made the call for 鈥$15 and fairness鈥 a rallying cry, minimum wage increases have been popping up across the country. Arizona is the latest state to entertain the possibility: A voter initiative will seek to raise the state鈥檚 minimum wage to $12 per hour. And it will be on the ballot, in spite of an attempt by the Arizona Restaurant Association to have it taken off. The association filed its challenge too late, according to both a trial court judge and the state鈥檚 Supreme Court. So in a few months the voters of Arizona will decide if they want a nearly $4 increase to the minimum wage (enacted over the next three years).
