Trump, Biden campaign on opposite sides of Nev. Senate race

"By the way, Joe Biden is in Las Vegas", Trump said, during a rally in Elko, Nevada. He also urged Americans to vote for "jobs not mobs". Turnout from the heavily immigrant union was credited with giving Democrats key wins in Nevada in 2016, when Hillary Clinton won the state.

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

Biden said in his appearance that "basic American values are under assault" and that the upcoming election was "bigger than politics".

On a three-day swing out West to make his closing arguments for Republican candidates, Trump sought to hone in on immigration as one of the defining election issues this fall by falsely accusing Democrats of wanting "open borders" and encouraging illegal immigration.

Though Biden said earlier in the week that he hoped Democrats, if they take back the House, do not start impeachment proceedings against Trump before Special Counsel Robert Mueller has released his report, many Democrats are holding out hope that some Republicans will join their impeachment crusade if Democrats have a big enough House majority.

Former President Barack Obama, who won Nevada during the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, will be visiting the battleground state Monday with a get-out-the-vote rally in Las Vegas.

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

The President's Nevada stop comes fewer than 24 hours after his Arizona rally, where he also spoke at length about Democrats and immigration.

In Michigan, Democrat Gretchen Whitmer has a solid lead over Republican state Attorney General Bill Schuette to replace outgoing two-term Gov. Rick Snyder.

Rep. Ted Deutch looks on as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks during a roundtable on gun violence at Coral Springs City Hall, Oct. 17, 2018, in Coral Springs, Fla. But no agreement came to pass. Dean Heller and the race is seen as one of Democrats' best chances to flip a seat this November.

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

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.
