Recent polls show a slight edge for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum (D) over Republican candidate Ron DeSantis (R) in the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections. Obama will be touting Pritzker's bid to defeat Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, along with backing state attorney candidate Kwame Raoul and Democratic congressional candidates. So he's not gonna work for people who had it handed to them.

Trump said that Obama's assertion that "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act proved false.

Obama, who also spoke in Florida on Friday, called on voters to turn out for Democrat candidates and denounced efforts by Republicans to dismantle his political legacy.

Trump also said "nobody was worse to the press than Obama", after Obama spoke in defense of the First Amendment.

Walker is in a fight for his political career just three days before the election. It comes as McCaskill is running against Trump-endorsed Republican Josh Hawley in a state that the president carried by 19 points in 2016.


The nation got an impossibly early peek at the outcome of the hotly-contested Florida governor's race on MSNBC - after the network mistakenly posted a graphic of the results before the polls even opened.

"We've seen repeated attempts to try and divide us, with rhetoric created to make us angry and make us fearful", Obama said, adding that Tuesday's midterm elections are a chance to shift to a "politics based on a sense we are all in this together".

As much as anything Obama and Trump said, the pair's travel schedules underlined a common objective: turning out their parties' bases. The campaign said Trump and Kemp had contributed to a poisonous atmosphere and Kemp has been silent on previous racially loaded attacks on Abrams.

"Division of Elections staff is communicating with each county supervisor of elections throughout the day, and we stand ready to provide any needed assistance", Detzner said in a statement. "Don't do that in front of them, come on", Obama calmly told one heckler.

Trump argued that Gillum would "destroy Florida" and claimed that Gillum's policies would be a "total nightmare" for the state. Nelson reportedly holds a 51% to 44% percent likely voter lead to current Governor Rick Scott just one day before the election. That poll has an error margin or plus or minus 5 points, so make of that what you will, too.
