    While Hillary Clinton is making an explicit push for Democratic down-ballot candidates, Donald Trump is taking a more subtle approach, NBC News reported.

    Sunday evening in Florida, Trump repeatedly pushed his supporters to help keep Republicans in control of Congress.

    Asking voters to cast their votes for him in 16 days, Trump said, "That includes helping me re-elect Republicans all over the place," adding that it would be "nice if they helped us, too, right? To enact my first 100 days."

    At three other points in the speech, Trump slipped in mentions of a Republican House and Senate as essential to enacting his agenda.
