U.S. Marshals searching for two scammers defrauding LA residents

 Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*U.S. Marshals continue their search for two Romanian nationals wanted for scams involving Craigslist and other websites.  Authorities say they are based in Lafayette and suspected of defrauding hundreds of people in Louisiana.

*On education today, State Superintendent of Education John White will examine last year's school report cards and Compass results.  Find out when the results will be released and how this evaluation system provides teachers with feedback on their performance.

*Today marks exactly two weeks until the mid-term elections.  Republicans are hoping a shake-up at the ballot box will give them control of both houses of Congress.  One of the biggest races being watched is Louisiana's senate race.  We'll have an election preview and talk about today being the first day you can cast your ballot early in Southwest Louisiana.

*Toys R Us is getting a lot of attention this week after the debut of a line of action figures from a popular TV show.  Find out why some people are saying that "Breaking Bad" action figures are a bad idea for children.

Make it a Sunrise day!
