  • President Donald Trump speaks during a rally in Estero Fla. Wednesday Oct. 31 2018

President Donald Trump on Saturday used his final Florida campaign event before next week's elections to implore supporters to send Republicans to the governor's mansion and the U.S. Senate, claiming that allowing Democrats to win either office would bring ruin to the state he also calls home.

Hot-button issues including guns, race and the environment are unfolding in a deeply personal way.

Trump's campaign stops were aimed at bolstering Republicans challenging incumbent Democratic senators in West Virginia and in, states he won in the 2016 presidential election. Politicians in both parties traditionally focus on winning over moderate voters. "The only check on that behavior is you and your vote". And that seemed to be the final straw for Obama, who couldn't help but wonder why the supporters of the party who now control the White House and both houses of Congress are so angry.

Trump said having Rosendale in the Senate will be "phenomenal".

"I was taken aback by the amount of space in President Obama's speeches that are devoted to a full frontal assault on Donald J. Trump and his administration", said Karl Rove, the political strategist for former President George W. Bush.

Obama's speech was repeatedly interrupted by hecklers, prompting him to quip: 'Why is it that the folks who won the last election are so mad all the time?'


An extremely busy and important weekend lies ahead for Florida candidates as Tuesday's midterm election draws closer. Twenty-seven states plus the District of Columbia have recorded more early votes at this point in the campaign than they did in all of 2014, according to The Election Project at the University of Florida, which tracks turnout.

Abrams, who faces Republican Brian Kemp, Georgia's secretary of state, on Tuesday, has been the beneficiary of a string of prominent visitors, including media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

Trump also defended his decision to focus nearly exclusively on the migrants and immigration in the closing days of the election.

"It's no surprise that (Democratic Sen.) Joe Donnelly is holding a rally this weekend with Barack H. Obama", he said, placing an emphasis on the "H", which stands for Hussein.

In a tweet, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said the campaign was spending $1.5 million on the buy and complained that CNN was refusing to air the ad. Bill Nelson, who is seeking re-election, at Miami's Ice Palace Film Studio. The margin of error is +/- 3.7%.

"If you want to pay high taxes, you ought to vote for the mayor of Tallahassee", Trump said.
