Ohio, Iowa, Florida, Pennsylvania: Donald Trump announced no fewer than four rallies on Wednesday to support Republican candidates in the US midterm elections in the final hours of the campaign.
The former president, surrounded by investigations, plunged headlong into this election campaign, during which Americans restored 435 seats in the American House of Representatives and a third of the seats in the Senate.
Held two years after the next presidential election, the Nov. 8 election has been turned into a referendum on Joe Biden, who occupies the White House.
But the election also serves as a life-size test of the political future of the Republican billionaire, who is openly flirting with a 2024 candidacy.
Certainly, the battle for control of Congress is underway in some key states — ones that are already at stake in the 2020 presidential election and which Donald Trump will visit in late October and early November.
Hours before the election begins, the former businessman will be in the hotly contested state of Ohio, where his foal JD Vance will challenge incumbent Democrat Tim Ryan.
Democratic President Joe Biden has alternated between meetings with working-class and wealthy sympathizers to fill his party’s coffers, hoping to at least maintain his control of the Senate.
