Ex-President Obama unleashed a furious attack on the Trump administration and GOP-controlled Congress while campaigning in Miami Friday, accusing them of spreading lies, fear and distractions as the midterm elections approach.

Trump, Knight and Vice President Mike Pence, a former IN governor, rallied supporters behind Republican Mike Braun, who is running against Donnelly IN a closely watched Senate contest. Rosendale has President Donald Trump and other big-name Republicans surrounding him on the campaign trail.

"We just have a lot of our voters who want to vote on election day. This election is going to be decided on election day, not just by the counting of the (votes) but by who votes", Rubio said.

Vice President Mike Pence says re-electing Montana U.S. Sen.

Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp joined together in condemning the automated telephone call that featured a voice impersonating Oprah Winfrey, the billionaire media star who campaigned in Georgia for Abrams Thursday. Gillum had appeared earlier Friday with former President Barack Obama.

Kudlow also added that Trump "could pull the trigger" on additional tariffs on Chinese imports, depending on how talks go. He gave no indication whether they made progress on settling the escalating tariff war over Beijing's technology policy.

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.

In line outside the venue, hours before Obama would take the stage, supporters - who had followed Trump's recent trip to the state - said they welcomed the juxtaposition. Former Vice President Joe Biden was campaigning in OH with former Obama administration official Richard Cordray, who is attempting to become governor in a high-profile contest. Trump noted that he also calls Florida home; his Mar-a-Lago estate is located in Palm Beach and he spends most weekends there in the winter.

But the main thrust of his argument was more expansive, touching on the political left's existential concerns over what they see as hypocrisy in Trump and disdain for democratic norms.

Gillum, who is facing former congressman Ron DeSantis for governor, also drew praise from Obama for his humble upbringing.

'I know Trump coming so often is making an impact, ' said Jim Hoyt, chairman of the Morgan County Democratic Party in northeast West Virginia. The Florida-based group engages in anti-Israel activism, including the promotion of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against the Jewish state.
