Trump urges supporters to vote, knocks media

Political Cornflakes: 'Trump has hijacked the election': Republicans worry the president's charged immigration rhetoric will cost them the House

Even though the president won IN by 16%, Joe Donnelly was supposed to be one of the endangered candidates with a better chance to hold on.

Almost a decade after the end of the war, this blot began to fade as Democratic congressional candidates won even in northern states. But in the first midterm under Trump - an utterly unconventional president - there are many unknowns, above all the bottom-line impact of a president who has driven both supporters and foes to a rare fever pitch of emotion. The GOP's grip on high-profile governorships in Florida, Georgia and Wisconsin were at risk as well. "We need to get an immigration bill done".

Total voter turnout in the county is 51 percent - only 6 percent less than the entire election turnout in the 2014 midterm election. More than 40 million Americans had already voted, either by mail or in person, breaking early voting records across 37 states, according to an AP analysis.

Democrats painted sharp distinctions with Trump, insisting that only they will protect the health-care gains made under Obama, that Trump has employed inhumane measures to keep migrants out, and that the divisiveness he has fostered must end. NBC, owned by Comcast Corp, said on Monday it was no longer running the ad, which it called "insensitive".

President Donald Trump implored his supporters to vote on Tuesday, saying the media will treat the midterm results as a referendum on his presidency.

He bet big on a xenophobic closing message, warning of an immigrant "invasion" that promised to spread violent crime and drugs across the nation. And in Kansas, Democratic state lawmaker Laura Kelly defeated Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a close ally of Trump. They didn't fare as well in the Senate, failing to flip a single seat while Republicans gained four and held onto their majority.

In the 1874 midterm, Republicans lost an astonishing 96 seats in the House of Representatives as Democrats took 168 seats, Republicans held 108, and independents held 14.

Meanwhile, in Missouri, Democratic Sen. The closest statewide race is that for State Land Commissioner, an under-noticed but important position when it comes to public lands and oil and gas in the state.

"A vote for Marsha is really a vote for me and everything that we stand for", he said at an October event for Tennessee's Republican Senate nominee Marsha Blackburn.

The case ended up with a hung jury and a mistrial and the charges were dropped.

Experts expect the state's 2nd, 9th and 13th congressional districts - George Holding vs. Linda Coleman; Mark Harris vs. Dan McCready; and Ted Budd vs. Kathy Manning, respectively - to be North Carolina's tightest House races.

In Virginia, political newcomer Jennifer Wexton defeated two-term GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock.

Democrats are drawing strength from women and college-educated voters in general, who swung decidedly against Trump since his election.

Well, Amazon has struck back; now it too is offering free shipping with no minimum to all customers, according to Reuters . The online retailer is waiving the purchase minimum purchase requirement for free shipping starting Monday.

But as he touched down in IN for the second leg of his final-day tour, even Trump conceded that the House may slip from his party's grasp. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Sen.

Mid-day turnout at the polls is typically low as voters spend their days working, but another surge is expected once people start getting off work.

He and the first lady were to host an evening watch party for family and friends.

The political and practical stakes were sky-high. They would also claim subpoena power to investigate Trump's personal and professional shortcomings.

Trump bucked tradition as a candidate by not releasing his tax returns.

Republicans are bracing for a likely loss of seats in the House of Representatives but are favored to hold on to the Senate.

Besides stymieing the Trump agenda, a Democratic victory in the House could allow Democrats to launch multiple committee investigations of the Trump administration and possibly even impeachment proceedings.

He pointed out Democrats have been enraged for years.

The demographic divides were coloring the political landscape in different ways.

Also joining the call were Trump's son, Eric Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republican leaders. "So that the public can see what's happening and how it affects them and that they can weigh in with the members of Congress and with the President of the United States".

In fact, since the early 1960s, the president's party has nearly always lost House seats in the midterm elections.

Democrats boast record diversity on the ballot.

Thirty-six of the 50 USA states elect governors this year, including about 10 considered toss-ups.
