Trump will be in full campaign mode in final week before midterms

Today marks one week until the midterm elections.

The Republican party now has majority in both the Senate and the House and Trump and his team is leaving no stone unturned to campaign in favour of his Republican party.

If enough of those districts switch to Democrats, the Republican party could lose its super majority in the Legislature, meaning Republicans would be unable to override gubernatorial vetoes on a party-line vote.

A summary of the state of the race released Tuesday by the Cook Political Report concluded that Democrats are favored to win the House, a determination that has been consistent throughout the midterm campaigns.

The National Republican Congressional Committee and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have spent $7.6 million and $5.7 million, respectively.

"Whether you're looking at donations from women, large donors, small donors, dark-money groups, parties or unions, the Democrats are seeing incredible success in fundraising this cycle", said Sarah Bryner, the center's research director.

The previous record for midterm election spending, set four years ago, was $3.8 billion. Democrats are in better shape.

"I don't think the math adds up for a change". Both the developments have given the opposition Democrats an edge over the Republican.

Missouri Republicans are not in danger of losing control of the state Legislature in this year's election although they said they are concerned about losing about a dozen legislative seats around the state's metropolitan areas.

Some Republicans deep in Trump country have regained ground. "It's important for us to get them focused back on the key issues, the economy and immigration". Democrats are hoping the answer is "yes". Coming off her slashing attacks in the U.S. Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Harris was stumping across Iowa last week as the leading Democrat Presidential hopeful for the 2020 election, according to the Washington Examiner.
