The removals took place in late September and early October.

"Lie after lie, broken promise after broken promise, that's what he did", Trump said during an outdoor rally in Huntington, West Virginia.

'We have seen repeated attempts to divide us with rhetoric created to make us angry and make us fearful, ' Obama said in Miami.

When Nelson took the stage Saturday afternoon at a joint rally with his party's gubernatorial pick here Saturday, the third-term senator had very little to say on stage beyond introducing Gillum ahead of an acoustic performance by Jimmy Buffett at an event sponsored by Florida Democrats.

Trump returned to Florida for the second time this week to help rally support for Gov. Rick Scott, who is challenging Democratic Sen. And that seemed to be the final straw for Obama, who couldn't help but wonder why the supporters of the party who now control the White House and both houses of Congress are so angry.

Trump said having Rosendale in the Senate will be "phenomenal". Scott was expected to be with Trump when he holds a rally later in the day in Pensacola, while Gillum was to attend a get out the vote concert with Jimmy Buffett in West Palm Beach.

"You can vote for a politics that is decent, for a politics that is honest, for a politics that is lawful, for a politics that tries to do right by people", Obama said at the rally in Georgia for Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate who is hoping to become the country's first black female governor.

The Democrats are out in force in the Sunshine State, as well. Republicans say the law is necessary to deter voter fraud.

With the race neck and neck, voter turnout will be crucial, said Georgia State University political scientist Lakeyta Bonnette-Bailey. Gillum said after being greeted with thunderous applause from an overflow Okaloosa crowd. "I'm going to vote the way Trump sees it".

The FBI said on Friday it had recovered a suspicious package addressed to California billionaire Tom Steyer, a Democrat known for his ads calling for Trump's impeachment.

Scott, the Republican governor seeking a Senate seat, and Gillum, the Tallahassee Democratic mayor running for governor, rushed back to the state capital after a gunman killed two people and injured five others before killing himself.

The races in Georgia and Florida are, perhaps more than any other on the wide and varied 2018 map, a referendum on the first two years of the Trump era - and whether Democrats have nailed down a path for defeating the President's acolytes in the Republican Party.

Trump also acknowledged that Democrats could win a congressional majority - though he suggested he wouldn't be to blame if they do.
