Trump and Obama to campaign in Florida during final week

US President Donald Trump Trump To Hold Rally In Escambia County This Week
Jodi Jackson | 31 October, 2018, 09:12

The report by the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign money, found that candidates and allied groups have spent $4.7 billion so far and will probably exceed $5.2 billion by the time the election season ends. In House contests, Democratic candidates have collected more than $951 million, while their Republican opponents have raised $637 million. Republicans have that same probability in keeping the Senate.

Historically, American voters have tended to leave incumbents in place so the news 39 Republicans are not running for re-election could pave the way for Democrat candidates to be voted in.

Florida's gubernatorial race has increasingly received national attention, especially after Gillum's impressive showing against DeSantis during last week's debates. Money doesn't always buy elections, but it sure helps, especially in close races where turnout matters and a ground game on Election Day can be the difference in tight contests. But it makes no mention of Trump - a sign of Republicans' challenge as they try to hang onto suburban House districts critical to their majority.

On Saturday 11 people were shot dead in a mass shooting inside a Pittsburg synagogue.

"I would be ecstatic if we pick up (a net) three, four, five seats", said Quade, who works with the Democrats' House Victory Committee.

The Republicans have raised far more money for legislative elections than the Democrats.

However impeachment requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate, so would require Republican votes even if the Democrats won every available seat in November. Democrats are hoping the answer is "yes".

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.
