Adjust Comment Print

Speaking to an audience of thousands in a Miami rally for Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum on Friday, Former President Barack Obama accused Republican lawmakers running the country of pushing the same agenda as previous Republican administrations, saying that Republicans are trying to divide the nation in order to keep power.

Trump, Knight and Vice President Mike Pence, a former IN governor, rallied supporters behind Republican Mike Braun, who is running against Donnelly IN a closely watched Senate contest.

Meanwhile, Trump was out on a campaign trail of his own, hitting multiple states in the final days leading up to the Tuesday election.

Trump criticized Nelson, too, claiming that he only sees the former astronaut "around election time when he's on television every night".

The former and current presidents are barnstorming the country ahead of the elections, in which Democrats hope to win control of the House of Representatives, gain Senate seats and pick up governor's mansions and state legislatures across the country ahead of the 2020 redistricting process.

"They know none of this is popular", he added.

The Democrats in the age of Trump
Democrats are predicted to take the House of Representatives , while Republicans are expected to keep a majority in the Senate . While Trump is not on the ballot, the most polarizing U.S. president for decades has put himself at the center of every issue.

Gillum leads 52 - 39 percent among independent voters and 93 - 4 percent among Democrats, as Republicans back DeSantis 93 - 4 percent. The calls, which came from the same neo-Nazi group that previously attacked Gillum in Florida, were denounced by Kemp as "absolutely disgusting".

While 6 percent of Florida likely voters remain undecided in this race, only 1 percent of voters who name a candidate say they might change their mind by tomorrow. The former president has been campaigning with Democrats in key battleground states.

Statewide Democratic candidates have tiptoed into an early, albeit slim, lead, as more than 5 million early voters have already cast their ballots prior to Tuesday's general election, breaking turnout records in the process. Claire McCaskill wants voters to know she's "100 percent" supportive of Trump's efforts to crack down on a migrant caravan making its way to the USA from Central America, ostensibly to apply for asylum. Later on, though, at a rally for Senate candidate Mike Braun in IN, the President struck a nastier note.

The Democratic candidate for Florida governor could use his office to hurt Israel's economy, warns the leader of a conservative organization. Trump noted that he also calls Florida home; his Mar-a-Lago estate is located in Palm Beach and he spends most weekends there in the winter.

Interest in the election has been unusually high in a year when Congress but not the White House is at stake, according to early voting tallies.
