Trump turns from 'humbling' grief to midterm fire and fury

Immigrants fighting for their rights Trump To Hold Rally In Escambia County This Week

"It will be challenging", Stepien says of the GOP's prospects of maintaining the House majority, but adds, "The House is still considered in play less than two weeks from Election Day".

The FiveThirtyEight House poll that analyzes all the major 2018 election polls to provide a statistical probability of the Democrats flipping 23 Republican seats to gain control of the House, now predicts a 86.4 percent chance the Democrats will win a majority, with an estimated net gain of 40 Congressional seats. First, Germain Arena serves as one of the largest venues in Southwest Florida, and second, energizing Republican voters in Lee and Collier counties provides a foundation of support for statewide candidates.

In addition, Trump attempted to cast the midterms as "the election of caravans, Kavanaugh, law and order and common sense" during a rally last week, a reference to a caravan of Honduran immigrants heading toward the US border seeking asylum and Democratic opposition to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, whom Trump successfully nominated.

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

Some Republicans deep in Trump country have regained ground. As of September 30, the House Republican Campaign Committee had raised $3.1 million compared to the House Democrats' $379,146. Both the developments have given the opposition Democrats an edge over the Republican.

Meanwhile, a pair of crises just a week out from Election Day - the massacre of 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue and the arrest of a suspect for mailing pipe bombs to a number of prominent Democratic politicians and others - have further unsettled the electorate just before the midterm vote.

"I would be ecstatic if we pick up (a net) three, four, five seats", said Quade, who works with the Democrats' House Victory Committee. "It's important for us to get them focused back on the key issues, the economy and immigration".

However impeachment requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate, so would require Republican votes even if the Democrats won every available seat in November.
