Obama aide's moustache bites dust
President Barack Obama's strategist David Axelrod had his trademark moustache shaved off live on TV after the hosts of a talk show helped raise one million dollars (£625,000) for his epilepsy charity.
Mr Axelrod, and his facial hair, appear frequently on news shows.
Mr Obama won Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Michigan and Florida, but Mr Axelrod said he would still shave his moustache if his charity raised one million dollars by November 30. His daughter, Lauren, has epilepsy, and his wife, Susan, helped create the group.
