Nevada Republicans whip up fears of California's influence

Protesters greet Pelosi with expletives during Florida campaign stop Nancy Pelosi cursed out by protesters in Florida

With thirty-six governorships on the line in the upcoming midterms, the GOP could see the 33 they now hold whittled down due to Trump's unpopularity.

The heavily immigrant union's voter turnout was credited with giving Democrats key victories in Nevada in 2016.

Trump spoke in support of Republican incumbent Dean Heller, who is fighting against Democrat Jacky Rosen for one of Nevada's United States Senate seats.

Trump, trying to hold onto Republicans' narrow 51-49 advantage in the Senate, said a vote for Sinema "is dangerous" because it would empower Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

The President will hold one of his signature Make America Great Again rallies in Elko, Nevada, where he will possibly speak on a range of topics from a headline-filled week, including the caravan of migrants headed for the Southern border, the Russian national who was charged on Friday with a federal crime for allegedly working to interfere in the 2016 and 2018 elections and the investigation into the killing of Saudi Arabian journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

He's a former Trump critic who has become an ally of the president and rallied with him in the northern, rural Nevada city of Elko Saturday.

"But my God, think of what's going on now, " Biden said, bemoaning that those values "are being shredded by a president who's all about himself". "The Democrats don't care that a flood of illegal immigration will bankrupt our country".

The country's immigration system has long vexed politicians from both parties, and Republicans themselves have torpedoed near-compromises in recent years.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was hounded by a group of protesters in Florida - with some cursing and calling her a "communist".

The protest was in response to Pelosi attending an event with Shalala that was also supposed to feature California Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee, a liberal lawmaker who drew the fury from the local Cuban community for praising the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. But no agreement came to pass.

But Heller himself once had rocky relations with Trump and had returned a campaign donation from then-candidate Trump over Trump's immigration rhetoric.

Heller and Rosen held their first and only debate of the campaign on Friday.

Biden says America was built on basic fundamental decency and "it is being shredded right now".

Trump emphasized that this round of tax cuts would be for middle-income individuals, not for businesses.

Following the emotionally charged and at times aggressive protests in Washington during the hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump and other Republicans have repeatedly accused Democrats of stoking irrational fears and inciting "mobs" to publicly shout down their political opposition.
