POINT PLEASANT, N.J. (AP) — Tom MacArthur is doing something that's familiar to dozens of candidates in the most fiercely contested congressional races: Tiptoeing around President Donald Trump.The Republican congressman has done more than anyone in New Jersey to help Trump. He was the only member of his delegation to vote for Trump's tax cuts. And he personally authored a provision that briefly resurrected Trump's health care plan.But on the eve of the election, he sounds like a member of the Trump resistance."I've worked with Democrats to get things done that matter to South Jersey," MacArthur told The Associated Press after addressing hundreds of veterans at an American Legion weekend celebration without mentioning the president's name. "I work with the president when I can, and when I think he's doing something that's bad for Jersey, I resist that, I push back on that."In an election that hinges on Trump's standing, candidates from both parties are struggling to find the right … [Read more...] about Candidates sidestep Donald Trump in midterm closing message
Philip Rucker and Felicia Sonmez, The Washington Post Published 6:57 pm PDT, Tuesday, October 9, 2018 COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa - President Donald Trump delivered a harrowing campaign pitch to voters here Tuesday, four weeks ahead of the midterm elections. Democrats, the president thundered to an arena crowd of roughly 9,000, are "radical," "unhinged" and "dim" - an "angry left-wing mob" that would destroy people's businesses, provide sanctuary to murderous immigrant gangs and plunge the nation into "poverty" and "chaos." "The Democrats have become too extreme and they've become, frankly, too dangerous to govern," Trump said. "They've gone wacko!" For a president who campaigned on and is governing with themes of grievance and fear, the portrait painted Tuesday night in Council Bluffs was especially dark. Trump's 76-minute stem-winder before a roaring crowd of Iowans and Nebraskans in this border town along the Missouri River was a preview not only of his campaign blitz over … [Read more...] about Trump paints a dark picture of Democratic control
Megan Durisin, Lydia Mulvany and Mario Parker, Bloomberg Published 7:46 am PDT, Thursday, September 20, 2018 North Dakota -- home to the fourth-smallest U.S. population -- is suddenly finding itself at the center of the escalating trade war between the world's largest economies. Historically a wheat-growing region, the state's growers have been upping their soybean output at breakneck speed in recent decades. Positioned closer to western U.S. ports than most areas of the soy belt, farmers were in a unique position to capitalize on China's skyrocketing demand for the oilseed that's used to make animal feed and cooking oil. Now that the crop has been caught in the crossfire of the U.S.-China trade spat, that demand is disappearing. "It's been built up, built up, built up -- and now, it's like the faucet has been turned off," said Nancy Johnson of the North Dakota Soybean Growers Association. China imposed a 25 percent tariff on U.S. soybeans in July, and its purchases … [Read more...] about Soy boom state finds itself in eye of trade storm
