Obama, Trump clash in final pitches to midterm voters

Trump Just Released One Of the Most Racist Ads You’ll Ever See

The President took to Twitter on Thursday morning, to urge his followers to "Vote Republican now!" and share a clip of Latino man Luis Bracamontes' courtroom appearance.

The party has made significant gains in a series of special elections held since the presidential vote two years ago, most notably winning a Senate race in Alabama last year. CNN rates the race as Likely Republican.

Trump is trying to fire up his base - Republican voters frequently cite immigration as a top concern - as the GOP tries to retain control of the House and Senate. The Democrats, in other words, will have more options in two years than they do now.

Every two years, voters in the US elect a new House of Representatives and one-third of the 100-seat Senate.

The Senate is expected to remain firmly in the hands of Republicans, with the oft-cited Website FiveThirtyEight predicting a 1-in-7 chance that Democrats will win the Senate.

"Pennsylvania is going to be the bellwether".

Galdieri said Republican voters look likely to turn out at their usual midterm levels.

In Florida, Andrew Gillum, the Democrat facing Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis in the governor's race, returned to the campaign trail after a break Saturday morning following a deadly shooting at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, where he is mayor. This year, 33 seats plus two retiree seats (Republican Thad Cochran of MS retired earlier this year and Arizona Senator Jeff Flake is retiring imminently) are being contested.

The video tweeted by Trump did not immediately appear to be running on television - it has a runtime longer than most TV ads - although it received extensive coverage on cable news networks. "A citizen deserves to have a competitive election".

Galdieri said that Trump's campaign took off back in 2015 "because of the hard line he took on immigration - that led him to the GOP nomination and to a win in the electoral college". Some 250,000 jobs were created last month, beating expectations. "That's what is putting hard-working Americans to work, and that's what is putting more money in their pockets".

Vigil for Pittsburgh synagogue attack victims tonight in Lakeland
KDKA television in Pittsburgh cited police sources as saying Bowers walked into the building and yelled "All Jews must die". Authorities said the suspect, Robert Bowers , 46, of Baldwin, Pa., was charged late Saturday with 29 federal counts .

"Part of what's at stake here is our ability to send a message that this is not who we are", said Karen Finney, a Democratic consultant who worked on Hillary Clinton's losing 2016 campaign.

President Donald Trump touted US economic growth and painted a grim picture on immigration in rallies with Republican candidates before Tuesday's elections as Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden urged voters to reject division.

Upstate Rep. John Faso is locked in a too-close-to-call race against Democrat Antonio Delgado, an attorney and former rapper.

The U.S. constitution has set up a system of checks and balances by vesting power in the President and the executive, the legislature (Congress), and the judiciary. This year's USA midterm elections could be an exception. If Republicans win both Houses, there will be more conservative judicial appointments, an attempt at repealing Obamacare (which they tried to do past year, unsuccessfully), and unless something egregious occurs or is revealed, Mr. Trump is highly unlikely to get impeached.

The party also is outpacing the Republicans by a margin of two-to-one in fundraising, a discrepancy that has not been seen in recent history.

That's why Democrats have been hammering their Republican opponents over the party's repeated attempts to dismantle the ACA and pave the way for insurance companies to once again raise premiums on people with preexisting conditions.

"It is not a right-wing organization".

"I recently announced that we are replacing the awful NAFTA deal, one of the worst trade deals, with an incredible, brand-new US-Mexico-Canada agreement".

The critics expressed concern over Perry's votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act - Obama's signature healthcare program - and its insurance protections for people with preexisting medical conditions.

"It's an interesting question, I mean ... when I won the presidency, at least my side felt pretty good". He told rally-goers to head home to watch what "great things" the military is doing at the border in anticipation of the migrant caravan from Central America.
