In US midterm race, racial tensions never far from surface

President Donald Trump speaks during a rally in Estero Fla. Wednesday Oct. 31 2018

Trump is also using his own popularity among his base to turnout voters for DeSantis and Gov. Rick Scott, who is running for Senate.

Although he is not on the ballot, Trump's polarizing presence has loomed large over the campaign for Tuesday's midterm elections, and in many ways the USA political landscape reflects the deep racial divisions manifested recently in deadly attacks in Pittsburgh and Kentucky.

Trump criticized Nelson, too, claiming that he only sees the former astronaut "around election time when he's on television every night".

"They're Republicans and they're for businesses, and I love business", he said.

Former Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis, who was boosted in his bid for the nomination by the President's endorsement, is hoping for another lift with his campaign running consistently off Gillum's pace. "And we've had 168,000 people that have taken advantage of early voting".

Oprah backs Stacey Abrams in historic Georgia governor's race
The cultural icon said she is a political independent who has "earned the right to think for myself and to vote for myself". As he blasted Trump's decision to send troops to the Southern border, Obama failed to note that he and President George W.

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.

Former President Barack Obama campaigns for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillium (L), candidate for Florida governor, and Sen.

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.

"The environment today is absolutely a function of Trump and Obama, the way the discourse has gone, the way people talk about race now", said Florida state Sen.

While 6 percent of Florida likely voters remain undecided in this race, only 1 percent of voters who name a candidate say they might change their mind by tomorrow.

The woman was identified as Izabela Lechowicz, an experienced pilot and flight instructor, Polish Radio reported, citing police. A small candle was placed in front of the flowers as people gathered at the stadium.

"If we go out and fight for these votes, we will win", he said. Bill Nelson (D) nodded at this from their seats behind the former president.

He also said of the Democrat: "Andrew Gillum is not equipped to be your governor".

At midday, Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner's office didn't report any issues at polling locations. That poll has an error margin or plus or minus 5 points, so make of that what you will, too.

Twitter Inc said it had deleted more than 10,000 automated accounts posting messages that discouraged people from voting in Tuesday's elections and wrongly appeared to be from Democrats, after the party flagged the misleading tweets to the social media company.
