jab from earlier in the week, when the Republican President said Abrams - owner of an estimable political résumé - was "not qualified" for the job that she and Georgia's GOP Secretary of State Brian Kemp are at about even odds to win next week.

Perdue, a former Republican governor of Georgia, was campaigning for the Republican candidate for governor, Ron DeSantis.

The final stretch of the campaign was briefly disrupted by the shooting Friday evening at a Tallahassee yoga studio.


That protester and two others were escorted from the venue.

Both Gillum and Scott planned to return to campaigning on Saturday with stops in central Florida.

Just a day before Election Day, polls show both sets of candidates locked in statistical ties. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., ahead of Republican challenger Gov. Rick Scott 51 percent to 44 percent.

"This is one of the most important elections in our entire lives", he told supporters in Montana. Despite the rally, Scott has taken a more reserved approach to Trump, not denouncing him but not hyping his endorsement either.

"It's like the con where a door-to-door salesman says you need a security system while his buddy sneaks in the back and steals your stuff", Obama said.

In the absence of an obvious successor, former President Barack Obama has been the Democrat's star performer with his calls for a more inclusive kind of politics.


Trump has tried to stoke up support for the Republicans by taking a hardline stance against a caravan of several thousand migrants heading toward the USA border with Mexico. He's also threatening constitutionally enshrined birthright citizenship.

Scott has won statewide at the top of the ticket twice, but now he has a new challenge of trying to knock off Nelson in a year in which the combined effect of Trump and Gillum could lead to a Democratic surge.

Kemp issued a statement calling the tactic "vile" and "contrary to the highest ideals of our state and country", adding a condemnation of "any person or organization that peddles this type of unbridled hate and unapologetic bigotry".

Trump defended a racist web video he had tweeted Wednesday depicting Democrats as responsible for an undocumented immigrant killing two police officers.

"There's no blue wave", Scott said to a crowd of about 100 people in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday afternoon. "Let's make sure that blue wave hits a red wall in the Badger State".

"They told me this was a red county!"
