Trump vs. Obama in the final weekend of the midterms

Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., has a slim two-point lead over Republican Gov. Rick Scott, in the Florida Senate race, according to two separate polls.

Former US President Barack Obama called on voters to choose "honest" politics at a rally in Georgia on Friday in the lead-up to the midterm elections.

"Listen, here's the deal", Obama said after he was interrupted. Obama will be touting Pritzker's bid to defeat Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, along with backing state attorney candidate Kwame Raoul and Democratic congressional candidates.

President Donald Trump is holding his second campaign rally of the day in Florida on Saturday night. For Democrats in particular, Saturday's dramas began on Friday evening.

Shortly afterward, Trump said in West Virginia that he'd watched Obama's speech on television aboard Air Force One.

In Montana, Rosendale trails incumbent Democratic Sen.

In a rousing speech to a Miami crowd as he campaigned for fellow Democrats ahead of next week's midterm elections, Obama said the Republican administration was 'even taking our fearless troops away from their families for a political stunt at the border'. The implication was clear enough and right in line with the tone of Trump's efforts to rev up conservatives.

Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder of Kansas, a loyal supporter of White House policies who's at risk of losing his seat in the Kansas City area, recently suggested his Democratic opponent, Sharice Davids, may not "actually stand up to President Trump", the Kansas City Star reported.

During the former president's speech, a protester shouted that Obama should "denounce ANTIFA" - the protesters who square off against neo-Nazis.

While Obama's rare campaign appearances dominated the headlines on Friday, the beginning of the weekend will belong to the grassroots liberal groups that have quietly been gearing up for a massive, final get-out-the-vote push.

They expect that number to skyrocket as Election Day nears.

If you haven't voted yet, you can still take part in early voting through Sunday, November 4 in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Go talk about what you're for.

"This election will decide whether we build on the extraordinary prosperity that we have achieved or whether we let the radical democrats take control of Congress and take a giant wrecking ball to our economy and to the future of our nation".
