Trump and Obama to campaign in Florida during final week

Figures compiled by the pro-Democrat Forward Majority Political Action Committee and cited by Vox show Republicans in the Florida House have raised $230,449 on average - almost five times as much as the Democratic average of $50,237.

Obama, whose visit was announced Monday, is scheduled to stump with the two top-of-ticket candidates and other Democrats at the Ice Palace film studioes only four days before the November 6 elections.

Florida's gubernatorial race has increasingly received national attention, especially after Gillum's impressive showing against DeSantis during last week's debates.

Vice President Mike Pence said during a campaign stop in Michigan that the first midterm election is typically hard for the party holding the White House and that "conventional wisdom" would suggest tough times for the Michigan GOP.

Saturday afternoon, Harris and Newsom will join comedian Chelsea Handler in Orange County to support Democrat UC Irvine Law Professor Katie Porter running in the 45th congressional district to flip the seat held by five-term Republican Rep. Mimi Walters.

Doug Rivers, chief scientist at YouGov global polling, said: "The chances of the Democrats winning all of those seem to me pretty slim".

She is among 10 Senate Democrats up for re-election this year in states where Trump won, and is considered among the most vulnerable incumbents.

Trump is trying to energize his most loyal supporters as polls show Democrats in position to take control of the House.

"It's a tough environment" for Republicans, said incoming House Speaker Elijah Haahr, R-Springfield, who suggested voters in suburban St. Louis and Kansas City - and perhaps around Columbia and Springfield - might want to punish Trump's party.

Currently, Republicans control two-thirds of the legislatures across the country.

Democrats can afford to spend a lot of money in close districts for the next 7 days, Republicans can't.
