Obama to Endorse 150 Down-Ballot Candidates

Published on 23 Oct 2016, 13:35
President Obama kicked off his first round of down-ballot endorsements on Friday. White House political director David Simas announced that over the next week, the president will endorse roughly 150 candidates across 20 states. Democrats have anticipated the 2018 midterms to be difficult for the party if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency. A Gallup poll revealed Obama's approval rating had climbed to 57% on Saturday. In combination with the wave of anti-Trump sentiments, Democrats hope to build back control over the house and senate.
