It turns out the Clinton and Trump campaigns don't like hailing cabs either.

Hamilton Place Strategies combed through the election campaign spending data and found that the two presidential campaigns used Uber more than three times as much as traditional taxis. Uber accounted for more than 3/4 of ride expenses under $100, compared to 22.9 percent for taxis and just 1.6 percent for Lyft.

Both campaigns also dabbled with Home Away and AirBnB, but traditional hotels still accounted for 99 percent of lodging expenses.

It might not stop with Uber, Hamilton Place Strategies said.

Will merchants on Thumbtack be a go-to resource for IT assistance? Will Postmates fill in for the intern who has to make late night dinner runs, or pick up office supplies for a last-minute get-out-the-vote push? Will WeWork turn into the "it" place for campaign headquarters? These are just a subset of services campaigns have yet to test, not to mention the many more yet to be created. These offerings have the potential to change the way we elect our officials, and time will tell just how much of an impact these new companies will make.

Elevator anxiety will stifle reopenings

Will you step back into an elevator any time soon?

Why it matters: Tens of billions of dollars — and the future of cities around the country — rest on the answer to that question. So long as workers remain unwilling to take elevators, hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of office real estate will continue to go largely unused.

Brazil coronavirus death toll tops 100,000 and case numbers surpass 3 million

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro posted a photo of himself to Facebook congratulating his soccer team, Palmeiras, for winning the state title Saturday, moments after the health ministry confirmed the national COVID-19 death toll had surpassed 100,000.

Why it matters: Brazil is only the second country to confirm more than 100,000 deaths from the coronavirus. On Sunday morning, it became the second country to surpass 3 million cases, per Johns Hopkins. Only the U.S. has reported more. Bolsonaro has yet to address the milestones. He has previously tested positive for COVID-19 three times, but he's downplayed the impact of the virus, which has crippled Brazil's economy.
