President Obama will rally for Democrats in Florida this Friday

President Obama will rally for Democrats in Florida this Friday

The locations of Trump's rallies are a sign that Republicans are trying to motivate conservative voters to go to the polls to support GOP gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis and U.S. Senate candidate Rick Scott in the November 6 elections.

If they won the House and Senate it would put them in a position to oppose the president's legislative agenda.

In the closing days of Florida's high-stakes races for governor and US senator, President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama will try to rally the Republican and Democratic faithful in the state.

A summary of the state of the race released Tuesday by the Cook Political Report concluded that Democrats are favored to win the House, a determination that has been consistent throughout the midterm campaigns. Republicans and Democrats are both playing offense in two districts while defending two seats apiece.

Doug Rivers, chief scientist at YouGov global polling, said: "The chances of the Democrats winning all of those seem to me pretty slim".

The seat is among more than 40 that were held by Republicans who are not running for re-election, the highest number since at least 1930.

However, the secretary did say that the USA will make sure its decisions are based on "real facts that we can confirm". Saudi prosecutors investigating the murder of activist Jamal Khashoggi are now calling his death a premeditated crime.

In a FiveThirtyEight polling aggregate, the Democratic Party holds a almost 10 percentage point lead over the GOP in the generic congressional ballot.

Trump has remained focused on the elections, even in the wake of a series of tragedies that have stunned the nation.

Missouri Republicans are not in danger of losing control of the state Legislature in this year's election although they said they are concerned about losing about a dozen legislative seats around the state's metropolitan areas.

For bills to be passed, they require a majority of votes in the House and if the Democrats gain a majority, they could potentially prevent bills supported by Mr Trump from going forward. Republicans have that same probability in keeping the Senate. The memo says Democratic challengers out-raised incumbent House Republicans in 92 districts in the last quarter.

Some of these seats are in key swing states such as Florida and Pennsylvania.
