Anti-Semitic and political violence rattle US midterm elections

Scott and DeSantis will join Trump on Halloween this Wednesday in Fort Myers before the president's second Florida rally in Pensacola on Saturday. In the nation's largest swing state, the parties are going all out during an election that feels like a precursor to the 2020 presidential campaign.

In addition, Trump attempted to cast the midterms as "the election of caravans, Kavanaugh, law and order and common sense" during a rally last week, a reference to a caravan of Honduran immigrants heading toward the USA border seeking asylum and Democratic opposition to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, whom Trump successfully nominated.

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.

In the latest sign of just how nationalized the race for Florida governor has become, former President Barack Obama will join Democrats Andrew Gillum and U.S. Sen.

Since Labour Day, the president has addressed 19 rallies and 11 are left on his schedule, thus making 30 rallies after Labour Day.

"I'm proud and humbled to have President Obama, my friend and a true patriot, on the campaign trail here in Florida", Gillum said in a statement. The midterms are also often seen as a referendum on the president's performance.

Gov. Rick Scott and Republican nominee for governor Ron DeSantis said they plan to be at the Fort Myers rally.

News 10 will let you know if there's a change in President Trump's schedule that includes a visit to MI.

Gillum's campaign didn't respond when the Miami Herald asked last week if Obama would stump with the Florida gubernatorial candidate, who last week appeared with Hillary Clinton at fundraisers.

Trump in 2016 became the first Republican to carry MI in a presidential election since George H.W. Bush in 1988.

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.
