If Democrats take control, "they will try to erase our gains and eradicate our progress". It ominously warns, "Who else would Democrats let in?" and suggests more violence will soon penetrate the border. "I think there's a broad range of areas that we'll be able to work with that Democrat minority in the House and the Senate, and we'll continue to reach out to do that". But it could happen, and you know what you do?

"I can tell you that it's definitely part of a divide-and-conquer strategy that a lot of politicians, including the president, have used successfully in the past", Curbelo said Thursday on CNN. Don't worry about it.

"I don't view it as the Willie Horton ad at all", the president told The Washington Times in an interview published Friday.

Trump is trying to help Republicans overcome strong Democratic enthusiasm by highlighting what he claims are the consequences of the GOP losing control of Congress.

A leading Republican super PAC has retreated from the airwaves in West Virginia, after spending millions in recent months.

The run-up to the election, widely seen as a referendum on Mr. Trump's divisive persona and hard-line policy agenda, has revealed deep strains in the president's political coalition and left him confined to campaign in a narrow band of conservative communities.

Republican Strategist and TV news personality Ford O'Connell, however, said that while historical precedent is in Democrats' favor, "the only question here is whether the Republicans in the House can minimize their losses and hold onto the House by a sliver".

In West Virginia, Trump is campaigning for Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, who is in a tight race with Sen. "We've had close to 1,000 people almost every day".

The Republican flag-bearer is Martha McSally, a 52-year-old former US Air Force fighter pilot and two-term member of the House of Representatives.

Donald Trump has defended a video he tweeted in which the Democrats are blamed for a Mexican migrant who is boasting about killing police officers. Twenty-seven states plus the District of Columbia have recorded more early votes at this point in the campaign than they did in all of 2014, according to The Election Project at the University of Florida, which tracks turnout.

Carson City Elections Deputy Aubrey Rowlatt said more than 20 people were in line at any one time to cast early ballots on Friday, the last day of early voting. He later added: "We don't want to go back to the Obama days".

Christopher Galdieri, an assistant professor at Saint Anselm College, said Democrats "have been fired up about 2018 since shortly after the 2016 election".

But if on one hand the president touts the United States as a land of plenty, with jobs for all, on the other he's doing everything possible to stir fear and loathing.

Miller, who is running in a surprisingly close congressional race against Democrat Richard Ojeda, praised Trump and sharply criticized her opponent, whom the crowd loudly booed.

Twitter has also said it deleted more than 10,000 automated accounts posting messages that discouraged people from voting in Tuesday's elections and wrongly appeared to be from Democrats, after the party flagged the misleading tweets to the social media company.
