GOP, Democrats Splitting Governor’s Races in Key States

Political Cornflakes: 'Trump has hijacked the election': Republicans worry the president's charged immigration rhetoric will cost them the House

US midterm elections 2018: History against Trump ahead of crucial vote

President Donald Trump is imploring his supporters to vote on Tuesday, saying the media will treat the midterm results as a referendum on his presidency.

In Indiana and again in Missouri, Trump invited White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and counselor Kellyanne Conway on stage to speak along with his daughter Ivanka Trump. His searing nationalist rhetoric and tearing of cultural fault lines drew criticism that he had crossed a risky line after a gunman killed 11 people in a synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh and a Trump supporter mailed bombs to the President's top targets in politics and the media, including two former Presidents.

As Pelosi played a starring role in GOP attack ads against them, several Democrats said flat-out they would not vote for her as leader. "It's all fragile", he said on the call.

In Portland, Maine, Josh Rent, 43, a small business owner and registered Republican, said he voted mostly for Democrats all the way down the ballot for the first time to protest Trump, who he believes is unnecessarily dividing Americans for his own gain.

"You want to see Georgia prosperity end?"

President Barack Obama told an IL rally, "They have declared war on Obamacare, they've declared war on the Affordable Care Act and all the provisions in it". "Vote for the Democrat". The billionaire appears to have capitalized not only on Rauner's lack of popularity but broader dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump.

Voting in Miami, Eloisa Alvarez said this election was "super important". "I understand that fear and anger motivates voters but the problem with his tone - and I'm being objective about it - is that it is divisive", said G. Terry Madonna, director of Center for Politics and Public Affairs at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Some are from districts Trump won in 2016 and see the San Franciscan as too liberal, while others represent liberal strongholds that view her as too willing to compromise.

"But when we can't find that common ground, we will stand our ground".

Seventeen Republican incumbents are defending House seats in districts that Democrat Hillary Clinton won in the 2016 presidential election.

Iranians rally to mark anniversary of US Embassy takeover
Iranian students stormed the embassy shortly after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, taking 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin were expected to provide more details on the sanctions at a briefing Monday.

He said that shows how "warped" some voters are in their thought.

For example, Ezra Klein, "the former wunderkind at the Washington Post, now a [t] Axios or somewhere, actually said - and I've never seen this". Among those expected were Trump's adult children, White House aides, Republican officials and presidential friends. Making matters worse for Republicans was the Economic Panic of 1873.

Critics within the Republicans have lambasted the president for politicising the armed forces, which have been deployed to the country's southern borders to prevent, what has been termed a "caravan" of immigrants, from entering the United States.

"That's an invasion. I don't care what they say", Trump said to cheers.

With a characteristic mix of folksiness, bombast and sometimes cruel humor, he says voters must choose between his stewardship of a booming economy and what he claims would be the Democrats' extreme-left policies.

"I used to be a moderate fiscal conservative and a social moderate, but I didn't like the way the whole Kavanaugh thing went down - I thought it was dirty", said one woman, a yoga mat slung over her shoulder, as she rushed to her class. The crowd responded with the chant, "Lock her up!"

"If the radical Democrats take power they will take a wrecking ball to our economy and our future", Trump declared in Cleveland, using the same heated rhetoric that has defined much of his presidency.

Recognizing that the concern about pre-existing conditions has galvanized voters regardless of party, Republicans have seized on it in the campaign's closing month, insisting that their plans would enshrine such protections. "I tend to think the arc of the universe bends toward justice, so I don't become discouraged. That's a big difference", he said, crediting his rallies for the influence.

"I don't think there's a Democrat in this country that doesn't have a little angst left over from 2016 deep down", said Stephanie Schriock, president of Emily's List, which spent more than ever before, almost 60 million USA dollars in all, to support Democratic women this campaign season.

Trump has had a busy campaign schedule in the final stretch of the race, with 11 rallies over six days.
