Obama showed how it should be done Friday, however, when he was heckled while stumping for Democratic candidates Bill Nelson and Andrew Gillum in Miami, Florida, ahead of Tuesday's midterms. Trump said in West Virginia that he watched Obama's speech aboard Air Force One, reminding some of his most loyal supporters of what he called Obama's broken promises on health care, the freedom of the press and global trade. Obama will be touting Pritzker's bid to defeat Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, along with backing state attorney candidate Kwame Raoul and Democratic congressional candidates.

Friday's campaigning featured a combination of Trump events in Huntington, West Virginia, and Indianapolis, while Obama was rallying Democrats in Miami and Atlanta.

Democrats are targeting four Republican House incumbents, with Lauren Underwood and Sean Casten looking to unseat GOP Reps.

Saturday morning began on Friday night for Democrats.

Obama campaigned in Florida and Georgia for Democratic candidates in two of the key races in Tuesday's midterm elections.

Far from buddies, Trump has frequently blasted Obama's economic stewardship and handling of trade agreements, while the former president has warned that the "character of our country is on the ballot".

"You know what, it's an old playbook", Obama said after another protester interrupted him. The implication was clear enough and right in line with the tone of Trump's closing argument to Republican voters.

Even as the campaign back-and-forth dominates the headlines, the beginning of the weekend also belonged to the grassroots liberal groups that have quietly been gearing up for a massive, final get-out-the-vote push. Swing Left, which is leading the effort, and has raised more than $9 million for candidates in 84 swing districts this cycle, says its volunteers called and knocked on the doors of almost 500,000 voters just last week.
