Former US President Barack Obama called on voters to choose "honest" politics at a rally in Georgia on Friday in the lead-up to the midterm elections. The Democratic Party candidate is hoping to become the country's first black female governor, Deutsche Welle reported.

Obama also criticized Donald Trump's plan to send active-duty troops to the US-Mexico border to assist Border Patrol agents, calling it a "political stunt at the border".

Obama campaigned in Miami to support Florida Democrats for the November 6 midterm election - among those candidates: gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and Sen.

Before Trump touches down in Georgia, he is due on Saturday night in Florida - his second trip there over four days - for a rally in Pensacola, another traditionally Republican stronghold up in the state's Panhandle, and the next day in Tennessee to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Rep. Marsha Blackburn.

Saturday morning began on Friday night for Democrats.

Former President Barack Obama made a quick stop at the popular Coyo Taco restaurant in Miami's Wynwood on Friday afternoon.

Obama said voters shouldn't be bamboozled by misinformation while Republicans allow polluters to poison the environment, give tax cuts to billionaires and take health care away from millions.

During the former president's speech, a protester shouted that Obama should "denounce ANTIFA" - the protesters who square off against neo-Nazis.

Speaking to a crowd of around 3,000 people, Obama also took shots at President Donald Trump by accusing him of "lying" and "fear-mongering". Americans will vote in gubernatorial and congressional elections next week.

The removals took place in late September and early October. "The only check on that behavior is you and your vote".

"It is pathetic that after months of running racist, sexist attacks against Stacey Abrams, Brian Kemp has only now suddenly made a decision to find a conscience as polls are tightening and Georgia voters are making it clear that they reject the kind of hate he and his allies have been spewing around the state", spokeswoman Abigail Collazo said.

Trump said that almost all of the illegal drugs such as heroin and cocaine entered the United States through the southern border, and called for stronger borders.

Texas had already recorded more votes than it did in all of 2014, including Election Day, the group said. Like other Democrats in the state, he still expects Manchin to win.
