Former US President Barack Obama called on voters to choose "honest" politics at a rally in Georgia on Friday in the lead-up to the midterm elections.
'I know Trump coming so often is making an impact, ' said Jim Hoyt, chairman of the Morgan County Democratic Party in northeast West Virginia. "You will destroy the state that I love".
For months, Scott had kept his distance from Trump and even disagreed with the president on items such as the death toll in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.
"Mayor Andrew Gillum and his challenger, former Congressman Ron DeSantis, are running exactly the same, 93 - 4 percent among self-identified members of each of their respective parties. It's not for him".
Earlier Saturday, Trump campaigned in Montana, where he made it clear that he wants to see Democrat Jon Tester booted from the Senate on Tuesday over a personal grudge as much as political ambition. Jon Tester over his role in sinking former White House physician Ronny Jackson's nomination to become the secretary of veterans affairs. "I've had one primary and two generals, and they all said I was going to lose". Trump also called Gillum a "thief" and corrupt, a move the mayor says is meant to reinforce negative stereotypes of black men. "It's a disgrace, what he did to that man".
"When the president won Florida in 2016, Republicans were down significantly going into Election Day", DeSantis told Fox News' "Fox and Friends". Despite the rally, Scott has taken a more reserved approach to Trump, not denouncing him but not hyping his endorsement either.
Republicans are favoured to retain control of the Senate, whose powers include confirming Trump's nominations to lifetime seats on the Supreme Court.
The president blames Tester for the backlash against Jackson, who eventually withdrew his nomination after facing anonymous ethics allegations, including claims of on-the-job drunkenness and wrecking a government vehicle. Lawmakers questioned Jackson's limited managerial experience and his fitness to run a department as sprawling as the VA.
Salvadorean migrants heading in a caravan to the United States, walk alongside the route, between Ciudad Hidalgo and Tapachula in Mexico on Friday.
While Nelson has come out strongly against President Donald Trump's plan to do away with the US policy of birthright citizenship, Scott hasn't come out strongly either way. On Thursday, Trump announced plans to limit who can seek asylum at the border.
Ron DeSantis' sometimes underwhelming crowds have been duly noted here and elsewhere, but take a look at the number of fans showing up as Election Day looms. At a rally with singer Jimmy Buffet on Saturday, Gillum called on those listening to "reject the politics of Trump-ism where we're being convinced we've got to step on our neighbor's shoulder and on their backs ... in order for us to get ahead".
