The voting bloc that handed President Donald Trump his upset victory two years ago has largely wavered in support, causing races thought to be shoo-ins for Republicans to tighten; that, and the party has consistently been outspent by their Democratic counterparts in the months leading up to the elections. He won't be around for long, though, as he has events in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Cape Girardeau, Missouri, also scheduled for Monday.

The ad, full of images of economic rebound in leafy suburbs, comes at the start of a hectic week of campaign rallies for Trump but reflects polling showing Republicans' deficit among college-educated women in suburban House districts. After two years of unified Republican rule, the Democratic Party's base is rallying around a crop of first time candidates and now has a variety of potential paths to winning the 23 seats they need to regain a measure of control on Capitol Hill. Of course, blue wins in the upcoming election would allow Democrats to remain competitive in OH, and potentially change the direction of Ohio's electoral power in 2020.

Vice President Mike Pence appeared Thursday at a rally for DeSantis in Jacksonville -- another region that has been a Republican stronghold.

Mr. Trump is expected to do at least 10 rallies in the final stretch before Election Day, doubling up on rallies on many days. This includes 28 fundraisers for national State Republican parties and 42 candidate focused fundraisers.
