Trump, Obama square off in whirlwind weekend before midterm elections

Trump supporters at a rally in Council Bluffs Iowa

The events will cap a whirlwind tour for the president, who is focusing on the threat of illegal immigration and bitter fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh's confirmation to rally red state voters against vulnerable Senate Democrats in 10 states that Mr. Trump won two years ago, even though his economic message is better suited toward winning centrist, suburban voters who will determine House control. "Democrats are well aware that Americans are fed up with Washington".

In the closing weeks of the midterms, Trump has unleashed a no-holds-barred effort to boost Republicans as he dipped into the same undercurrents of unease that defined his 2016 campaign.

While briefly speaking to reporters, Trump was hopeful that Republicans would win the House, but if not he would still do "whatever he wants".

When Blackburn took the stage briefly, she told supporters, "If you want to vote no to Hillary Clinton and her cronies one more time, stand with me".

In the final stretch Trump has brought out special guests to join him on the campaign trail. And he cast Trump and the GOP congressional majorities as corrupt.

"I hope President Trump will return next year so that I can welcome him back to IN after I'm re-elected on Tuesday", Donnelly said.

Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats to take control of the House.

White women without college degrees prefer Republicans by a 12-point margin, though white women with degrees clearly prefer Democrats, 61 percent to 33 percent.

"This is going to be directly related to turnout".




"In the closing weeks of this election we have seen repeated attempts to divide us with rhetoric created to make us angry and to make us fearful", he said.

He largely stayed away from swing states and districts where the President is unpopular enough that a last-minute visit would have backfired and galvanized Democratic voters. "But, as you know, my primary focus has been on the Senate, and I think we're doing really well in the Senate".

Former Vice President Joe Biden campaigned in Pennsylvania, where Democrats hope to win several House seats while keeping a Senate seat and the governor's office. Bill Nelson, who faces Republican Gov. Rick Scott in a marquee Senate race. Heidi Heitkamp is far behind Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer in North Dakota. But the GOP is feeling good about its prospects.

"No, I don't view this as for myself", Trump said, before making the case that his campaigning has "made a big difference" in a handful of Senate races across the country. Thom Tillis, North Carolina Republican, told "Fox News Sunday".

- Five states are considering the legalization of medical or recreational marijuana.

But the Trump campaign was behind the January 2018 video, released on its YouTube page, that featured Bracamontes's courtroom appearance. Bob Corker, a Republican. Trump told the rally crowd in Macon, Georgia.

"I got two of the mailers last week alone, one on Thursday and the other Saturday", Cyril Herder, a conservative activist, told the Washington Free Beacon.

"The level of fervor, the level of fever is very strong on the Republican side", he said. I watched him speak today.
