CAMP HILL, Pa. — Sharon Sybrandt thinks Donald Trump is “fat,” ugly,” and a “whack job.” But her disgust with the Republican presidential nominee doesn’t mean she’ll vote against the GOP down ticket — to the relief of her home-state senator, Patrick J. Toomey.

“I will vote Republican for everyone else entirely to counteract Hillary,” said the 72-year-old former insurance regulator. The registered Republican and a resident of this well-to-do suburb of Harrisburg has a deep unease with Democrats — mainly because of their work on health care — and is worried what will happen if they once again control the White House and Congress.

With just two weeks to go until Election Day, Americans can’t turn on the television without being inundated with political ads.

Elise Stefanik appears to be coasting through her re-election bid in New York's 21st District and toward a bright future in the Republican Party.

But that’s not what reporters who chased the freshman congresswoman after a recent debate in upstate New York wanted to talk about. They wanted to ask her why she still supports Donald Trump.

The Democratic presidential nominee and some surrogates are pivoting from attacks on Donald Trump toward how she might enact her agenda and work with Congress.

At campaign stops Sunday in North Carolina and Monday in New Hampshire — both battleground states in the race for the White House and Senate — Clinton mentioned Trump here and there. She mocked him. She urged Democrats to vote in large numbers.

Republican Rep. John L. Mica of Florida is known in his district for bringing home transportation money, but his support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump could hurt his chances of being re-elected. 

Mica described Trump’s comments about groping women, revealed earlier this month in a leaked 2005 video recording, as “vulgar and unacceptable” but he has not withdrawn his support for Trump's candidacy, The Associated Press reported

President Barack Obama continued a Democratic full-court press on down-ballot Republicans, campaigning and cutting ads in key Senate and House races.

Holding a solid lead over Republican Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has also turned her attention to those races, too. She will likely give some aid to North Carolina Senate challenger Deborah Ross when she campaigns in Winston-Salem with Michelle Obama on Thursday.

With the Senate in play and Democrats sensing gains in the House, White House aides say President Barack Obama will get more and more involved in down-ballot races as Election Day nears.

Until Thursday, Obama’s public campaign rallies have focused almost exclusively on making the case for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and against her GOP opponent, Donald Trump. That changed, however, when the president flew to Florida and dove headlong into GOP incumbent Sen. Marco Rubio’s re-election fight.
