Where the Midterm Race Stands Days Before U.S. Vote: Election Countdown

President Donald Trump touted US economic growth and painted a grim picture on immigration in rallies with Republican candidates before Tuesday's elections as Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden urged voters to reject division.

Trump came to IN to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Mike Braun, a former state representative and businessman who is putting up a stiff challenge to Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly. He also talked about the low unemployment rate.

"Every time my opponent opens his mouth I am disgusted", Miller said of Ojeda, whom Trump has called "wacky" and "stone cold insane".

Where the White House is concerned, one source close to the House Oversight Committee said Democrats want to pressure the president to beef up surveillance bodies that are tasked with overseeing the intelligence community, like the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA for criticism.

Mr Obama is set to campaign again Sunday in his adopted hometown of Chicago, as well as in IN, where the seat of Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly is in danger. While Donnelly has sought to highlight his cooperation with Trump on issues such as immigration, he voted against last year's tax cuts and this year voted against Trump's choice of Brett Kavanaugh to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. The Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics found in a poll last week that Braun has 40 percent support against Donnelly - who has 41 percent. "I think it's just an ad where somebody is a bad guy, came in illegally, twice, and we can't do that". Trump will tour the nation, landing him in Senate battlefields such as Indiana, Missouri, and Florida along with contests for governor in Georgia and Ohio.

Trump was joined on stage by former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight, who led the crowd in a cheer "Go get'em Donald".

At an airport rally earlier Friday in Huntington, West Virginia, Trump opened his final sprint to the midterms by defending his decision to tweet a video warning of people crossing into the US illegally at the border with Mexico.

That's why Sunday's rally in Gary, a city that has more in common with the Democratic stronghold of nearby Chicago than deep red parts of the state, could prove strategic.

The White House revealed Friday that Trump and first lady Melania Trump have already voted.

The original video alleges without evidence that Democrats were responsible for allowing Bracamontes into the U.S. Bracamontes was sentenced to death in California for the 2014 killings. It ominously warns, "Who else would Democrats let in?" and suggests more violence will soon penetrate the border.

Trump effusively praised Morrisey, the state's attorney general, saying that "he'll always vote for us".

O'Rourke, 46, whose given names are Robert Francis but who goes by Beto, is mounting a suprisingly strong challenge to the 47-year-old Cruz in the reliably Republican "Lone Star State". But for Donnelly, who frequently touts how often he votes with Trump, the Obama rally is a little more complicated. Joe Donnelly, is a vote to make Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer the majority leader under a Democrat majority Senate.

Plucking the Senate seat from Cruz, who battled Donald Trump for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, would be a major victory for the Democratic Party. "He's a very successful businessman and a patriot who will fight every single day of his life for the people of Indiana".
