In US midterm race, racial tensions never far from surface

Elizabeth Warren, who is expected to cruise to re-election next week, echoed former President Barack Obama's criticism of Trump's chatter about ending birthright citizenship with the swipe of a pen.

The removals took place in late September and early October.

During Trump's mid-week rally, DeSantis took the stage, where he bashed Gillum as a "failed mayor" who was "hanging out with Bernie Sanders".

Knight, the former coach of the Indiana Hoosiers, embraced Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, often appearing with the future president at rallies in the state.

The competing campaign rallies, including Friday evening events in Georgia and in, set the stage for weekend campaign events for both party heavyweights.

Another poll released Monday morning is showing the Democrats leading in Florida's gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races, this one from Quinnipiac University, which has both Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson up by seven points over their opponents, Republicans Ron DeSantis and Rick Scott. "The only check on that behavior is you and your vote".

Trump's party has attempted to use majorities in both houses of Congress to abolish Obama's signature healthcare law and backtrack his administration's environmental regulations.

Republicans are favoured to retain control of the Senate, whose powers include confirming Trump's nominations to lifetime seats on the Supreme Court.

Obama used similar tactics to thwart a second heckler, who interrupted his comments on health care. "With Governor Scott's high support among decided Hispanic voters and room to grow with his Republican base, this campaign is right where Governor Scott would like it to be the weekend before Election Day".

The Democrats are out in force in the Sunshine State, as well.

After Miami, Obama was headed to Georgia to campaign for Stacey Abrams, a former state legislator aiming to become the nation's first black female governor. Lois Frankel warmed up the crowd by saying she had been barred from Trump's nearby Mar-a-Lago estate and a compliment for Nelson's work if no one would to compete with Gillum in terms of bringing out crowds. "Everybody voted already? No kidding". And to tell their friends and families to vote'.

But the main thrust of his argument was more expansive, touching on the political left's existential concerns over what they see as hypocrisy in Trump and disdain for democratic norms.

The FBI said on Friday it had recovered a suspicious package addressed to California billionaire Tom Steyer, a Democrat known for his ads calling for Trump's impeachment.

"I believe legal immigration makes us a better and stronger country", Scott said in a statement after being pressed on the issue, "but illegal immigration does the opposite".

The races in Georgia and Florida are, perhaps more than any other on the wide and varied 2018 map, a referendum on the first two years of the Trump era - and whether Democrats have nailed down a path for defeating the President's acolytes in the Republican Party. Like other Democrats in the state, he still expects Manchin to win.
