Trump casts midterm elections as a personal referendum

Kasich told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday that the special congressional election Tuesday in a district that Trump won by double digits is surprisingly close. "I think it could be a red wave", Trump said of his party's prospects in November. "And we're doing a lot of things people don't even know about".

The rally comes hours after Trump denounced arguably Ohio's favorite native son, basketball superstar LeBron James, who just opened a school for underprivileged children in Akron.

Trump trained fire on one of his new targets, Democrat Representative Maxine Waters of California.

Prominent Republican leaders like Senate Republican President Pro Tem Leonard A. Fasano and House Minority Leader Themis Klarides are trying to turn the focus of CT citizens away from President Donald Trump.

He went on a screed against illegal immigration and basked in cheers as the crowd chanted a campaign rallying cry: "Build the wall, build the wall".


"I think [Trump and his political advisers] think they are firing up the base", at such rallies, added Kasich, who was among several establishment party leaders Trump defeated for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

Trump also brought to the stage OH congressman Jim Jordan, calling him "a tough cookie".

Murphy said he is wary of a strategy in which Republicans seek to tie themselves to the president, but noted Republican politics are now "all Trump all the time". The seat was vacated by Republican Rep. "His opponent is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi/high taxes". Troy Balderson, the GOP candidate running in a special election this coming Tuesday.

He also brought on-stage Freedom Caucus member and Ohio Representative Jim Jordan, who praised the president on his leadership and accomplishments, amid cheers from the crowd saying "speaker of the house".
