WASHINGTON - There are scattered key elections in the United States on Tuesday, with President Donald Trump campaigning for Republican candidates in hopes of shoring up his own political standing a year ahead of his re-election contest and battles for control of the U.S. House and Senate.
Trump, with polls showing widening disapproval ratings from voters nationally and facing an impeachment inquiry in Washington, headlined an election-eve rally in Kentucky for incumbent Republican Gov. Matt Bevin, a loyal supporter of the president who is facing a tough re-election campaign against his Democratic challenger, State Attorney General Andy Beshear, the son of a former Kentucky governor.
"Kentucky is having the best economic year ever under Matt’s leadership," Trump said on Twitter ahead of his visit. In another tweet, Trump said, "Matt will never let you down, and we have to send a strong signal to Nancy Pelosi and the Radical Left Democrats. See you on Monday night, VOTE TUESDAY!!!"
Trump was referring to his nemesis in Washington, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives that has launched the impeachment inquiry against Trump after he pressed Ukraine to investigate one of his top 2020 Democratic rivals, former Vice President Joe Biden.
