Obama to rally for Joe Donnelly, Indiana senator who backs Trump policies

Obama to rally for Joe Donnelly, Indiana senator who backs Trump policies

Now, after two years, Democrats are eager to get back in the ring and slug it out with the GOP. Naturally, this is especially true in the overtly political stories as well.

USA congressional candidates hammered into the campaign homestretch on Saturday, with Democratic former vice president Joe Biden urging voters to reject division as President Donald Trump touted economic growth after sounding dire warnings on immigration. Democrats and liberal activists, galvanized by opposition to Mr. Trump, gathered Saturday to knock on doors and make turnout calls from Pennsylvania to IL to Washington to try to erase the G.O.P.'s 23-seat House majority. And while that race featured unusual circumstances - the Republican, Roy Moore, faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct - the Democrats repeated those gains in less controversial races.

For Braun, a businessman who has campaigned as a steadfast Trump ally, the current president's appearances in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne are no-brainers in a state he won two years ago by 19 points.

"It's not a good sign for Republicans if they have to spend all these resources for a seat they shouldn't have to be fighting for", said Simon Haeder, a professor of political science at West Virginia University, in a phone interview.

Christopher Galdieri, an assistant professor at Saint Anselm College, said Democrats "have been fired up about 2018 since shortly after the 2016 election".

Referring to a group of a few thousand impoverished Central Americans now trying to walk to the United States through Mexico, Trump says the nation could be "overwhelmed".

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

Bonfire Night 2018: fireworks displays and events in Burnley and surrounding areas
The neon colour matches perfectly to the fireworks taking over London's night skies - the ideal way to celebrate Bonfire Night. Scenes at last years fireworks display hosted by Sleaford Town Football Club and Sleaford Cricket Club.


Trump said more caravans were forming and thousands of people were coming to invade the country. New York's Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo is facing Republican Marc Molinaro in the governor's race. If the Democrats can't win control of the Senate this year, they might be able to manage it in 2020.

As a red-state Democrat, Donnelly has had a target on his back ever since he unexpectedly defeated Republican Richard Mourdock in 2012, when the former state treasure said a woman who gets pregnant from her rapist is carrying a "gift from God".

Historical records show only twice since 1934 has any sitting president's party gained seats in both houses of Congress - in 1934 and in 2002.

Deadly politically tinged violence that stunned the nation last week likely will sharpen the hard partisan edge that is defining the first midterm election of Donald Trump's presidency.

Looking only at Republican seats, the odds don't look so bad for the Democrats.

Republican Sen. Dean Heller is seeking a second full term against Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen in the one true battleground state that features a Republican incumbent.

Trump's aggressive travel schedule over the next several days is aimed at boosting GOP Senate candidates as the party tries to expand its 51-49 Senate majority, rather than working to defend embattled Republicans in the House, where the party's control appears in doubt. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz also remains the favorite for re-election, despite the energetic and well-funded campaign of Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke. "We don't want to put anti-coal people - they are anti-coal people and they vote anti-coal, and frankly that's what you are getting".

At Amazon, it’s Black Friday already. Next stop, complete holiday domination
Target says it will also have a new mobile checkout option, following a similar announcement that Walmart made earlier this week. The standard Black Friday video game deals drop the prices of the Atari Flashback 8 and Sega Genesis Classic to $40 each.


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.

The polling prediction site says that for control of the House, Democrats have an 85.4 percent chance.

"No, they won't have to fire", the president said.

Trump launched an eight-state campaign tour on Wednesday in a final push to endorse Senate Republicans and GOP gubernatorial candidates. She has one of the most conservative voting records among Democrats in Congress and presents herself as a nonpartisan problem-solver.

Even as illegal immigration dips to a quarter of what it was in 2000, Trump claims that the country literally faces an "invasion" of Central Americans.

The new ad, tweeted by Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, warns ominously that a caravan of migrants that has been traveling toward the US must be stopped. "He's never going to vote for us".

Trump said that soldiers deployed to stop the illegal immigrants from entering the U.S. would not open fire, but would arrest them if they threw stones at the troops.

UFC 230: Daniel Cormier stands firm on retirement plan
Cormier has never lost to anyone except Jones, the star-crossed former light heavyweight champion who beat him twice. Cormier was feeling great after he flattened Stipe Miocic and won the heavyweight crown.


The video stood in stark contrast to an ad circulated by the Trump campaign earlier in the week that highlighted rosy economic numbers and depicted gauzy scenes of American suburban life.
