Trump's national attention turns to state races

Youth turnout could hold the key in the US mid terms and threaten Trump's hold on Congress

"I think Republicans had a chance to hold the House", Rove said.

"I have four events today", she told the Washington Free Beacon Saturday after participating in a gas-tax repeal rally outside her Yorba Linda campaign office. That would allow them to keep the ability to approve "U.S".

DHS claims that there are more than 270 hardened criminals lurking among the women and children heading toward the United States from Central America by way of Mexico, but it has not named them or said how it arrived at that number.

In Chattanooga, Tennessee, to bolster the prospects of Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, Trump once again warned that caravans of immigrants are on their way to flood across the southern border.

Without naming names, Obama condemned Trump and other Republicans for what he called divisive policies and lies, Reuters reported.

In the run-up to the midterms on Tuesday, Obama said, Republicans are once again using fear as a political tactic by portraying the caravan of refugees traveling through Mexico toward the US border as a threat to America's national sovereignty.

But in IL on Sunday, Obama reflected on that historic moment - and suggested that Tuesday's election could be even more important. In Georgia he introduced former University of Georgia football Coach Vince Dooley to address the crowd of supporters.

In what has become the most costly midterm elections in history, one House and one Senate race have managed to outpace the competition in burning up cash, indicating how seriously both sides take the hotly contested seats: Florida's neck-and-neck senatorial race and California's 25th congressional district.

Trump told reporters as he left the White House en route to a pair of rallies Sunday that he thinks "we're going to do well in the House, but as you know, my primary focus has been on the Senate, and I think we're doing really well in the Senate". Also, Warren is a polarizing figure, which could lead some moderate Republicans to vote for Diehl even if his embrace of Trump doesn't thrill them. Later in the day, the former president was campaigning in his hometown of Chicago for businessman J.B. Pritzker, Democrats' nominee for IL governor. "It's a sign of their ineffectiveness that they're afraid to do it", said Ed Mattos (70) of Rockville, Maryland, who attended the Sanders rally.

This would require the House GOP holding the vast majority of those toss-up races, possibly because of rising enthusiasm from Trump's fear-infused, immigration-focused base strategy. "The promise is Trump will have an easy foil to run against: Pelosi and Democratic leadership".

"One election won't eliminate racism, sexism or homophobia", Obama said during an appearance in Florida.

Trump is throwing his political muscle behind Republican statewide candidates ahead of midterm elections that could dramatically reshape his presidency. Early polls put the candidates much closer.

The Senate and the House of Representatives make up the upper and lower chambers of Congress, which is the legislative branch of the federal government, and is responsible for making laws.

Mr Trump continues campaigning in OH and in on Monday, before making a final stop in Missouri.

Obama lambasted the Republican gubernatorial nominee, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, for his record on voting rights, while praising Abrams as the "most experienced, most qualified candidate in this race".
