10.14 Clock Update: Obama warns of fear in the campaign
Barack Obama advocated support for Democratic candidates and warned them of terror as President Donald Trump pounded a harsh anti-immigration message to encourage the Republicans.
The former president had a common theme of democratic campaigns – the defense of the Health Law of 2010, which was his signature at home, while calling on Americans not to accept hostility and division in politics.
Obama said in Miami, "We have repeatedly seen attempts to share rhetoric that makes us angry and anxious.
"But in four days, Florida, you can check that kind of behavior."
Obama was flanked by Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, who faces former Congressman and strong Trump Supporter Ron DeSantis, and Senator Bill Nelson, who is being challenged by outgoing Governor Rick Scott.
Trump's campaign stops were aimed at supporting the Republicans who opposed the established Democratic senators in West Virginia and Indiana, which he won in 2016 in the presidential election.
"This election will determine if we are building on the extraordinary wealth we have unleashed … or if we are letting the radical Democrats take a huge demolition to America and into our future," Trump said in West Virginia.
According to opinion polls and impartial forecasters, Democrats generally have strong chances to win 23 additional seats and get a majority in the House of Representatives that they could use to start investigations into Trump's government and block its legislative agenda.
