The Latest: Trump says Democrats have a ‘wrecking ball’
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) – The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):
President Donald Trump is sharing the stage at a Florida rally with the state’s Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and governor, at the same time taking swipes at their Democratic opponents.
Trump’s appearance Saturday night in Pensacola, Florida, followed a rally earlier in the day in Montana, part of a multistate sprint by the president toward Tuesday’s midterm elections.
Trump says Florida’s Democratic senator, Bill Nelson, hasn’t lobbied his White House on behalf of Florida residents. And he says the Democratic nominee for governor, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, will ruin the state in one or two years, adding that Gillum just isn’t “equipped” to be governor.
Trump turned the stage over to the GOP nominee for the Senate, Gov. Rick Scott, and its nominee for governor, former congressman Ron DeSantis.
