Former President Obama speaks at rally for Florida Democrats on November 2
Nov 05 2018
'Don't get anxious and freaked out, don't throw up your hands in despair.
Far from buddies, Trump has frequently blasted Obama's economic stewardship and handling of trade agreements, while the former president has warned that the "character of our country is on the ballot". "They said, 'You shouldn't be doing that!"
Americans on Tuesday will elect lawmakers for all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, 35 seats in the 100-member Senate, 36 governors and dozens of state legislatures.
Two presidents, past and present, dominated the campaign trail Friday, as Barack Obama assailed Donald Trump for "lying" and "constant fear-mongering", prompting Trump to snap back that Obama had attracted a "very small crowd".
Trump received the type of jobs report that any president would envy heading into the final days before the midterm elections.
Twitter Inc said it had deleted more than 10,000 automated accounts posting messages that discouraged people from voting in Tuesday's elections and wrongly appeared to be from Democrats, after the party flagged the misleading tweets to the social media company. The Democrat took a brief break from the trail early Saturday morning in the aftermath of a deadly shooting at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, where he is the mayor.
Obama will return to the trail on Sunday, headlining rallies for Donnelly in Gary, Indiana, and in his hometown of Chicago for J.B. Pritzker, who is running for IL governor. 'But in four days, Florida, you can be a check on that kind of behaviour'.
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.
Trump gave a howling hint of what to expect this weekend during a campaign stop in IN on Friday.
Like he has during the closing weeks of the campaign, Trump also sought to use the divisions exposed and escalated by the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to motivate Republican rallygoers in Belgrade, baselessly suggesting all of Kavanaugh's accusers were changing their stories.
Obama used similar tactics to thwart a second heckler, who interrupted his comments on health care.
"It is pathetic that after months of running racist, sexist attacks against Stacey Abrams, Brian Kemp has only now suddenly made a decision to find a conscience as polls are tightening and Georgia voters are making it clear that they reject the kind of hate he and his allies have been spewing around the state", spokeswoman Abigail Collazo said.
They expect that number to skyrocket as Election Day nears. The Democratic Party candidate is hoping to become the country's first black female governor, Deutsche Welle reported.
