President Trump “On the Stump” Ahead of the Congressional Elections
US President Donald Trump will campaign in 8 states in the final days before 6 November congressional elections, with his focus on tight races in which Republicans have a good chance at winning Senate seats.
From Wednesday until Election Day, the President will make campaign stops in Florida, Missouri, West Virginia, Indiana, Montana, Ohio, Georgia and Tennessee.
President Trump made a campaign stop in North Carolina Friday night.
Saturday he campaigned in Illinois to head off a Democratic drive to take control of the US House of Representatives and possibly the Senate.
“No one Republican, no surrogate, no person can better move the political needle than President Trump,” White House political director Bill Stepien told reporters.
Democrats hoped to be in a good position to capture the House, but many races have tightened to the point that some analysts believe that Republicans will maintain control.
“I think the Republicans have tremendous momentum,” President Trump told reporters at the White House.
“We have a lot of Senate races where we’re leading – races that frankly were going to be uncontested,” President Trump added. .”.. There are a lot of people in the House, so we’re going to see how that goes. But I think we’re doing very well in the House.”
President Trump is hammering away at 3 Key themes, they are:
- Illegal immigration,
- The contentious Senate confirmation battle over U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who denied accusations of sexual misconduct, and
- His plan for middle-class tax cuts.
In Florida, Trump will seek to boost the Senate campaign of Florida Governor Rick Scott, who is in a tough race against veteran Democratic Senator Bill Nelson, as well as lend a hand to US Representative Ron DeSantis in his gubernatorial race against Democrat Andrew Gillum.
In Missouri, President Trump will help Republican Josh Hawley in his bid to unseat Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill, while in West Virginia, he will aid Republican Patrick Morrisey in his fight against Democratic Senator Joe Manchin.
President Trump will be making a return visit to Montana as he seeks to help Republican Matt Rosendale unseat Democratic Senator Jon Tester.
President Trump will visit Tennessee on behalf of Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, who is in tight battle with Democrat Phil Bredesen for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Bob Corker.
The President will try to give a boost to Republican Brian Kemp in his campaign against Democrat Stacey Abrams for Governor of Georgia.
In Indiana, Trump will campaign for Republican Mike Braun in his attempt to knock out incumbent Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly.
And in Ohio, President Trump will lend a hand to Republican Mike DeWine in his campaign against Democrat Richard Cordray in the race to succeed Republican John Kasich, another Trump critic, as governor of a state that may be instrumental to President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.
