Trump Campaign Blitz in Final Week Before Midterm Election

WASHINGTON, D.C. – He visited North Carolina last week, helping give a boost to Republican congressional candidates Ted Budd (NC-13th) and Mark Harris (NC-9th), and now he will criss-cross the country to help elevate more Republicans in the final stretch before election day.

From The Hill:

“President Trump is set to embark on a campaign blitz in the final week before the midterm elections, traveling to eight states to provide a last-minute boost to GOP candidates in key races, the White House announced Monday.

The president will hold 11 campaign events in six days beginning Wednesday, including stops in Florida, Montana, Indiana, Missouri and other battleground states that will determine control of the Senate.

Following a previously announced rally on Wednesday in Florida for gubernatorial candidate former Rep. Ron DeSantis (R), Trump will head to Columbia, Mo., on Thursday where Senate candidate Josh Hawley, the state attorney general, is aiming to unseat Sen. Claire McCaskill (D).

The president will begin the day on Friday in Huntington, W.Va., where state attorney Patrick Morrisey is challenging Sen. Joe Manchin (D). Trump will then travel to Indianapolis, Ind., to boost former state lawmaker Mike Braun in his bid against Sen. Joe Donnelly (D).

Trump will spend the first part of the day Saturday in Bozeman, Mont., returning to the state for a third time since Labor Day to bolster state auditor Matt Rosendale’s campaign against Sen. Jon Tester (D).

The president will jet off to Pensacola, Fla., later in the day for another rally in support of DeSantis in his race against Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum (D). Trump has backed Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) in his Senate race against Sen. Bill Nelson (D) as well, but Scott has yet to appear at a campaign rally with the president.

Sunday will see Trump make stops in Macon, Ga., to back gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp (R) in his contest against Democrat Stacey Abrams, as well as Chattanooga, Tenn., where he will urge support for Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R) in her race against former Gov. Phil Bredesen (D) to replace retiring Sen. Bob Corker (R).

Trump will make three stops on the final day before Election Day. He will head to Cleveland to back gubernatorial candidate Mike DeWine (R) against Richard Cordray (D), followed by a return trip to Indiana and another stop in Missouri.”
