Democrats entered the final weekend before Election Day with a head of steam in the fight for the House — emboldened by a pair of long-serving Republicans in solid conservative territory scrambling to save their seats. President Donald Trump, who planned rallies Saturday in Montana and Florida, amplified his anti-immigration rhetoric in states where Republicans could win significant Senate and gubernatorial contests. Yet the message worried House Republicans looking to stanch losses in suburban districts, and even the president acknowledged the growing likelihood that Democrats will win the chamber.Story Continued Below “It could happen, could happen,” Trump said at a rally Friday in West Virginia. “We’re doing very well, and we’re doing really well in the Senate, but could happen. And you know what you do? My whole life, you know what I say? ‘Don’t worry about it, I’ll just figure it out.’” The brightening Democratic … [Read more...] about Dems barrel toward Election Day confident of House takeover
