Trump rallies for 2018 Republicans

Trump rallies for 2018 Republicans

"That's what's going to happen", Trump said at a rally to boost GOP Senate candidate Patrick Morrisey and House hopeful Carol Miller. Online political journal The Cook Political Report expects Democrats to make a net gain of 25-40 seats as of this writing.

"I am not looking for headlines", Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told The New York Times.

"We had Obamacare killed except for one Republican vote", Trump said, in a jab at the late Sen.

"Clearly there's an bad lot on the line in terms of the legislative agenda", said Republican consultant Josh Holmes.

Twitter Inc said it had deleted more than 10,000 automated accounts posting messages that discouraged people from voting in Tuesday's elections and wrongly appeared to be from Democrats, after the party flagged the misleading tweets to the social media company. "That's going to be fun on the debate stage when we debate one of the lefties".

But a win is not necessarily in the bag, he cautioned.

But even immigration restrictionists say much would depend on the margin of victory by various Republicans.

The heated rhetoric comes amid a final push by Republicans and Democrats to control Congress after the midterm election.

One of the most expensive and closely watched Senate races is in Texas, where incumbent Republican Senator Ted Cruz is facing Democratic Representative Beto O'Rourke.

But while the results may reveal weaknesses in the Republican coalition, midterm elections are very different than presidential years. In the 1938 elections the Democrats at the time of Franklin D. Roosevelt took a beating, losing 71 seats, according to political publication PolitiFact.

Ari Fleischer, George W. Bush's press secretary, said Democratic control of the House "has both peril and promise for the president".

He previously served three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Trump mocked political prognostications of a "blue wave" in 2018. In short, the Democrats will put the brakes on the Trump administration's agenda.

"I don't view it as the Willie Horton ad at all", the president told The Washington Times in an interview published Friday.

"The peril is subpoenas, investigations, legal bills and headaches", he said. But of the 36 seats being contested, 26 are held by Democrats - so they have more at stake.

"If the Russians do have leverage over the president of the United States, the majority has simply decided it would rather not know", Schiff said. "The migrant caravan must be stopped".

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. From stoking fears about illegal immigration to warning of economic collapse if Democrats are victorious.

Last December, Trump signed into law the largest tax overhaul since the 1980s, which slashed the corporate rate to 21 percent from 35 percent and temporarily reduced the tax burden for most individuals as well.The appearance was meant to boost the campaign of Matt Rosendale, the Republican state auditor challenging Democratic U.S. Senator Jon Tester.

"We're going to keep these people out of our country".

"Joe will never be with us", Trump said.

The president claimed again that Republicans are for keeping pre-existing conditions - an issue that has become a hot-button campaign issue in West Virginia because Morrissey joined 19 other state attorneys general in a lawsuit to try to end Obamacare and potentially take away protections for pre-existing conditions.

"So I suspect he thinks of (his stance on immigration) as his greatest hit, and an approach that can help Republicans in advance of next week's elections", Galdieri added. "That's why we focused this year on tailored [get-out-the-vote] strategies created to move the needle for candidates".

"They can play that game, but I can play that game also", he said.
