Trump will be in full campaign mode in final week before midterms

US President Donald Trump Trump To Hold Rally In Escambia County This Week

"It will be challenging", Stepien says of the GOP's prospects of maintaining the House majority, but adds, "The House is still considered in play less than two weeks from Election Day".

Trump will be campaigning most heavily on behalf of Republican Senate candidates, which is projected as a much closer battle than the House, which is likely to flip to the Democrats.

Harris and Newsom will finish the evening in Brea with Democrat - and victor of the $266 Mega Millions jackpot - Gil Cisneros running for the 39th congressional District open-seat against Republican former State Assemblywoman Young Kim.

Democrats are emphasizing to voters that state Republicans cut specialty care for some Medicaid recipients, eliminated the state's pharmacy-assistance program and passed "right to work" legislation that was overwhelmingly rejected by Missouri voters in August. Newsom was leading by an average of 15-points in the four polls released in the last week in the race to succeed Democrat Gov.




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

"Everything suggests that we are a country that's on edge, and I think that's going to translate into participation", said Jefrey Pollock, a Democratic pollster. "That would be more shocking than Trump winning the 2016 election".

Southwest Florida and the Panhandle are two party strongholds where Republicans look to run up large vote margins. Democrats are hoping the answer is "yes".

U.S. President Donald Trump plans to hold campaign rallies in eight states next week in a final push ahead of November elections that will determine whether Republicans retain control of Congress, a White House official said.
