Obama campaigns hard ahead of mid-term polls


Barack Obama has been rallying supporters in Masachusetts.

Ahead of mid-term elections on November 2, the US President is pulling out all of the stops amid predictions that his Democratic Party may lose its majority in the House of Representatives.

Obama said: “The biggest mistake we can make now is out of hurt and confusion … the worst thing we could do is go back to the very same policies that caused this mess in the first place.”

The Republicans need to gain just 39 seats to take control of Congress. Former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin is one of the high profile members campaigning in key cities.

Palin said: “We’re asking for leaders who won’t mortgage our kids’ future with trillions more in debts, and leaders who understand that raising federal taxes in a time of economic woe is a recipe for disaster. It’s a recipe for the bankruptcy of our country.”

Up for grabs on November 2 are all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, a third of the seats in the Senate and 37 governorships.
