Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen is not the type to keep quiet when he has something to say. If Cadillac isn’t planning on hauling out a new range-topping sedan, that means the CT6 winds up being the one to battle the big Benz and Bimmer four-doors of the world.

By Dustin Volz and Jim Finkle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation has found breaches in Illinois and Arizona's voter registration databases and is urging states to increase computer security ahead of the Nov. 8 presidential election, according to a U.S. official familiar with the probe.
