Barack Obama Slams Donald Trump Era Ahead of Crucial US Midterm Elections

"Public policy matters. Leadership matters", Perdue said at a rally Saturday in Lakeland Florida, according to audio posted online by American Bridge, an anti-Republican Political Action Committee. "But if we don't vote, there could be".

Gillum's supporters raced to condemn DeSantis's remarks as racist, while Gillum said that it was clear DeSantis was taking a page out of "the campaign manual of Donald Trump".

President Donald Trump could learn a thing or two from former President Barack Obama about how to handle hecklers. At one point the crowd began chanting, "Lock him up!"

During his stop at the University of Central Florida, Sanders railed at Trump and contended he was coming to the state because he is anxious that DeSantis will lose the governor's race.

"They will get folks riled up just to protect their power and their privilege, even when it hurts the country, even when it puts people at risk", Obama said. The Tallahassee mayor has staunchly denied any wrongdoing, and said that he was at no point a target of the investigation.

Like he has during the closing weeks of the campaign, Trump also sought to use the divisions exposed and escalated by the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to motivate Republican rallygoers in Belgrade, baselessly suggesting all of Kavanaugh's accusers were changing their stories. The day after the primary, DeSantis said on Fox News that Florida voters shouldn't "monkey this up" by electing Gillum. "Florida's economy is humming".

Obama won twice in Florida and lost by relatively narrow margins in Georgia (about 5 points in 2008 and 8 points in 2012) with pitches that largely predicted Gillum and Abrams, who have steeped themselves in progressive populism while being careful not to alienate moderate business interests.

"Of all the voters in Florida, Puerto Ricans can understand what is at stake in this election", Nelson said at the Kissimmee event.

He's also going to areas Democrats have traditionally ignored, like Okaloosa County in the western Panhandle, which Republican Gov. Rick Scott carried in 2014 with more than 75 percent of the vote in a year he didn't receive 50 percent of the statewide vote.

"Who voted?" Trump asked the packed arena.

Pence and Walker addressed more than 500 supporters in northwest Wisconsin, where the two-term governor told them, "I need your help now more than ever". Gillum said after being greeted with thunderous applause from an overflow Okaloosa crowd. "In fact, I see a tsunami of blue about to slip over this area".

DeSantis campaign manager Brad Herold quickly lambasted the poll for its sizable Democratic lean on Twitter. Later on, though, at a rally for Senate candidate Mike Braun in Indiana, Trump went a nastier route. He then laughed and added, "This is insane".
