In the governor's race, he said, MI has voted for a candidate opposite the party in the White House for the past six elections, and Democrat Gretchen Whitmer appears on track to capitalize this year. Bob Corker (R-TN), who opted to not seek reelection.

The US midterm elections on 6 November will decide who controls US Congress plum in the middle of the Donald Trump presidency.

However, Democrats are expected to fall short of the two seats they need to wrest control of the Senate from Republican hands.

They won't want to make a sitting President look bad in the run up to 2020 after all.

Trump made a series of media appearances and campaign rallies in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri the day before elections that will determine whether his Republican party retains control of Congress.

Two races which are of particular interest are Georgia, where Democrat Stacey Abrams is seeking to become the first black woman to become governor of a USA state, and Florida, where Democrat Andrew Gillum is locked in a bitter battle with Republican and Trump acolyte Ron DeSantis.

Fierce political battles were raging in races across the nation. Various analysts have given the Democrats a strong chance of taking control of the House of Representatives, while predicting that the Republicans will hold on to the Senate.

Michigan, meanwhile, is one of the places where Democrats are eyeing a pickup in the governor's race and seem on track to hold serve in the Senate race.

In the final days, Trump has accelerated his harsh rhetoric on illegal immigration and lobbed apocalyptic attacks on Democrats. The party has diverged according to the chamber: Senate Republicans seeking to grow their majorities in rural, red states by toppling incumbent Democrats have mostly welcomed Trump's red-meat approach; House Republicans whose survival hinges on the suburbs have privately griped and tried to change the subject... Which strategy you prefer depends on whether you think there are more votes to be had at this point from group one or group two.

"The contrast in this election could not be more clear".

US President Donald Trump isn't on the ballot, but some see the midterms as a referendum of sorts on the controversial president.

"They've racked up enough indictments to fill a football team", Obama scoffed.

Political passions have risen to a rare peak, with early voting in some states already running far ahead of normal levels.

The clip falsely claimed Democrats let into the United States an undocumented Mexican immigrant who murdered two California sheriff's deputies in 2014.

O'Rourke, a three-term congressman and former member of a punk band, is drawing enthusiastic support from many urban dwellers in Texas, while Cruz does better in conservative rural areas. "There is a lot of energy out there". "Six more years!" as the President exulted in the size of the crowds at his rallies, which are mostly white.

Pollsters say Democrats may win the 23 seats they need to take over the House of Representatives, and possibly 15 or so extra seats. A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found a 7-percentage point lead for Democrats, 50 percent to 43 percent, down from a 9-point lead in the previous poll.

But in what could be a sharp warning sign for Republicans, that poll reported college-educated white women - the so-called suburban moms seen as crucial to the 2018 outcome - favor Democrats by a substantial 61 percent to 33 percent.

Laying into the tangled legal scandals enveloping the Trump administration - especially the possible collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian operatives - Obama scoffed, "They've racked up enough indictments to fill a football team". They accuse the Republicans of trying to do away with healthcare protections.

"We're not letting these people invade our country", Trump declared. The campaign event to which Trump referred fell under that rule, then White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said, according to the outlet.
