In Miami, Obama said democracy can't work when words stop having meaning, encouraging a crowd of about 3,000 to vote for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and Sen. That's because Florida is a high stakes swing state that could be a preview for 2020.

Numerous tiny minority of black faces in the crowd were there to sell Trump paraphernalia as the president rallied support for Republican candidates.

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. You know, it's like, I enjoy that. He also reminded voters that the next governor will appoint three justices.

Obama was in Miami and Atlanta, each home to minority voters that Democratic gubernatorial candidates Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia need to turn out in force on Tuesday. "It's not for him". Obviously, we do not yet have any vote totals here, the night before the election, ' he noted.

DeSantis used Trump's backing to make the case that if he is elected, the state will be in a better position to receive support from Washington, D.C., in contrast to Gillum who has called for the impeachment of the president.

Hundreds of northwest Wisconsin Republicans huddled together in 40-degree temperatures waiting to enter the shipping warehouse in Hudson, Wisconsin, where Pence rallied supporters for Walker. "That's the feeling I had", he said. "It's a disgrace, what he did to that man".

Midterm elections will be on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Republicans are favoured to retain control of the Senate, whose powers include confirming Trump's nominations to lifetime seats on the Supreme Court.

Tester, the top Democrat on the Senate committee that oversees veterans' issues, had released a list of the allegations against Jackson that was compiled by the committee's Democratic staff.

Trump lamented the downfall of "Doc Ronny", who withdrew from consideration back in April amid charges of improper conduct on the job. Lawmakers questioned Jackson's limited managerial experience and his fitness to run a department as sprawling as the VA.

Trump himself - who infamously pushed the falsehood that the country's first black president was not born in the United States - stands accused of driving Americans ever further apart, with nearly 8 in 10 black people surveyed by Quinnipiac in July judging that he is racist.
