(She is now the ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee and could become chairwoman after the election.) He has previously referred to her as a "low-IQ individual" and at events the weekend before the midterm election sarcastically called her "legendary" and "genius". The strangers faced each other from opposite edges of the great American divide, Democrat versus Republican, both convinced the election is among the most consequential in their lifetimes and that they must save the nation from the other side.

It is more important for investors to maintain and follow their longer-term investment plan, and await signs of action in Congress, they said. "He's not on the ticket".

He said Trump has done a good job in the weeks leading up to the election and successfully mobilized the Republican base, and the GOP may actually add to their majority in the Senate.

You get more bang for your buck as president campaigning in one of 35 Senate races than in one of 435 House races. "I was shocked that she didn't win - I still can't get over it, especially in terms of who she lost to".

Just after, a gunman walked into a Pittsburgh synagogue and shot 11 worshippers dead.

"He has diarrhea of the mouth and diarrhea of the brain". He has also made it clear voters should act as if his name tops the ballot. "That's what the American voters are going to deliver their verdict on".

"Regardless of whether you agree with their political positions, Abrams and Gillum represent candidates who have extensive experience in public service, impressive educational backgrounds, and can point to track records of accomplishment under their leadership", says Celeste Watkins-Hayes, professor of sociology and African American studies at the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University and a friend of Abrams, tells TIME in an email. Their beliefs on subjects like immigration are already priced in to some extent too, of course, but the more Trump can drive up the fear factor, the more he might convince some populist stragglers to take an hour to go to the polls. "I want to see the wall go up", said Joe Spirko, 57, as he peddled Trump flags outside of one of the president's rallies in Florida last week. For the immigration hard-liners inside the Trump administration, it's all good.

Throughout the fall, Trump has cast an overwhelming shadow over the midterm elections, which will serve as a testing ground for his nationalist appeals.

"I think we're going to do well in the House", he said of Tuesday's races.

Meanwhile, Donna Stapleton photographed this view of fireworks streaking across the sky at Codnor Community Bonfire in Derbyshire. There is free parking and free shuttle buses will be running from and to the Market Place and Boston Road vehicle parks.


In North Carolina, for example, 9.1 per cent of early voters were in the 18-29 age range, compared with 5.9 per cent in the 2014 midterms.

A friend recently sent Hoeppner a photo of immigrants arriving at Ellis Island with a note that said: "For our ancestors, this is their caravan". The crowd responded with the chant, "Lock her up!" But the real variable is Mr Trump himself. "They didn't come trying to storm the border".

He would also be losing the ability to pass legislation without Democratic votes, a setup that gave him a signature tax-cut bill and at least a shot at other victories - a chance that could vanish the moment Democrats control the agenda in half of Congress. "I like that", Pelosi said.

"I would say tone". Turnout in the last two midterm elections was between 40 percent and 50 percent of registered voters.

For many Americans, Tuesday's congressional midterm elections are a referendum on Republican President Donald Trump's divisive persona, hard-line policies and pugnacious politics.

"While midterms usually garner much less interest than presidential elections there has been a surge in voter turnout in primaries and special elections ahead of November elections".

Following the outbreak of the #MeToo movement denouncing sexual assault, and the massive women's protests against Trump, women voters and candidates will play critical roles in the first major election since Trump took power.

Rose Cathleen Bagin, 77, lives in the same neighborhood as the synagogue. A WSJ/NBC poll released yesterday indicated that almost 75% of likely voters said their vote was meant to send a signal about the President.

In August 2016, 52 percent of Democrats were more likely to let others know how they meant to vote in the upcoming presidential election, compared to 46 percent of Republicans and 34 percent of unaffiliated voters. "No, I don't - it's not racism, it's just that people have to come into our country legally, otherwise you don't have a country".
