President Donald Trump made his final pitch Monday to Midwest Republicans ahead the 2018 midterm election, making stops in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri.

The President spent more than an hour in Fort Wayne Monday evening stumping for Northern Indiana Republican candidates.

Rep. Jim Banks, Sen. Todd Young and Senate candidate Mike Braun all took the stage to rally supporters ahead of Tuesday’s election. Trump spent much of his speech targeting Braun’s opponent: incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly, who recently issued campaign ads supporting a border wall and critical of his party.

“What they do is, on Wednesday, they’ll go back to who they are," TRump said. "And we’ll never get a vote from Joe Donnelly, when we come in with the health care, when we come in with whatever we want, we will never. Because it’s obstruction.”

Trump also touted his economic agenda, while criticizing Democrats for the confirmation  hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and -- without evidence -- for funding the migrant caravan.
