Trump Pushes For Down-Ballot Republicans, Expects Support in Return

By    |   Monday, 24 October 2016 10:24 AM

Donald Trump pushed his supporters to vote for down-ballot Republicans, pointing out that he will need a Republican House and Senate to put his plans into effect.

In a Florida speech, he said that support for him "includes helping me re-elect Republicans all over the place," according to NBC News.

Trump said it would be "nice if they helped us, too, right? To enact my first 100 days."

NBC News reported that while Trump pushed for Republicans, he did not mention the state's GOP incumbent Sen. Marco Rubio, who is running for re-election and has not removed his endorsement from the candidate, although he has rebuked his claims of rigged elections.

"If you elect me, along with a Republican House and Senate, we will also immediately repeal the Obama-Clinton defense sequester and rebuild our badly depleted military," Trump vowed in the speech. He also said he would repeal "disastrous" Obamacare and would work on "tax simplification for the middle class."

The NBC News report noted that Trump has rarely campaigned for anyone else in the Republican Party during his speeches, outside of occasionally mentioning local politicians who have supported him.

Meanwhile, his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, is pushing for her fellow Democrats and specifying why down-ballot candidates are the best choice for her supporters. CBS News reported that she pitched Democratic candidate Katie McGinty in Philadelphia. In North Carolina she said candidate Deborah Ross was "exactly the kind of partner I need in the U.S. Senate."

At the Florida rally, Trump praised polls that showed him in the lead. He said he understands that he is setting records in polling with male voters, but would trade those numbers for higher support with women.

"I'd swap you out so fast," he told his male supporters in the audience, NBC reported.
