US midterm elections: Trump fears for Republicans as Florida WIPEOUT predicted

DONALD Trump’s Republican Party is launching a last-ditch mission to avoid a midterm election wipeout in the key swing state of Florida.

The White House will make an 11th hour push to rally supporters for the November 6 vote.

The US President will jet to Florida at least twice in the build-up to the elections, it is reported.

Other high-profile GOP politicians will travel to Florida in an attempt to marshal the Republican vote.

A flurry of Republican text messages is also set to be bombard Florida voters who have not yet cast absentee ballots.

In the US mid-term elections voters elect all 435 House of Representative seats and 35 of 100 Senate members, known as Congress.

Thirty six out of 50 state governors are also up for election, including Florida’s.

Both Congress houses are currently controlled by Mr Trump’s Republican Party.

Vice President Mike Pence and senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway raced to the state on Thursday to support Florida’s Governor Rick Scott, who is running for Senate this year.
