While Kemp and DeSantis are candidates closely tied to Trump locked in heated gubernatorial races, the other contests focus on swing Senate contests. All but the open Tennessee race features a Democratic incumbent running for reelection in a state Trump won in 2016.

The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan election forecaster, rates the Montana, Missouri, Indiana, Florida and Tennessee races as "toss-ups."

The West Virginia race "leans Democratic," according to the Cook Political Report.

The president has been in full-on campaign mode over the past month, holding 15 political rallies since Oct. 1. The events largely follow the same script, with Trump tearing into Democrats, the media and his critics while touting the economy, and warning of elevated crime and illegal immigration if the GOP loses its congressional majorities.

Trump’s campaign rally rhetoric has been the subject of scrutiny in the aftermath of a violent week that saw men arrested for mailing pipe bombs to prominent Democrats and for killing 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

The president has rejected calls to temper his tone at such rallies, where he frequently derides the media and rips his Democratic critics. The events are often marked by chants of "CNN sucks" and "lock her up," the latter referring to former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham Clinton Rally crowd chants 'lock him up' as Trump calls Biden family 'a criminal enterprise' Undecided voters in Arizona wary of Trump, crave stability Push to expand Supreme Court faces Democratic buzzsaw MORE.

"I think I've been toned down, if you want to know the truth," Trump told reporters last week before leaving for a rally in North Carolina.

Republicans are seeking to hold on to their majorities in the Senate and House, though Democrats have expressed optimism that they will retake control of the latter. Democrats need to pick up 23 seats to take the majority in the House, and must gain two seats in the Senate to secure a majority.
