>> And I'm not on the ticket, but I am on the ticket because this is also a referendum about me.>> President Trump is casting the November elections in starkly personal terms as he barn storms around the country.>> They say if I was on the ticket it would be a land slide.

>> Here's Trump in Arizona last week, campaigning for Senate canditate Martha McSally.>> It will be the second greatest vote you ever cast. The first greatest vote was for me.>>

>> Other republicans are not so eager to embrace the president. Many lawmakers who represent wealthy suburban areas, like Leonard Lance of New Jersey, are trying to differentiate themselves.>> So there are areas of agreement but I also point out the areas of disagreement.

>> In West Virginia, Senate candidate Patrick Morrisey has turned that pitch into a campaign ad.>> A vote for Morrisey is a vote for me.>> I'm Andy Sullivan in Washington, which is unusually quiet as lawmakers campaign back in their home states. Trump is out in full force on the campaign trail as well, whipping up his supporters as he tries to help Republicans retain control of Congress.

He's telling voters that the election is all about him, hoping they'll be happy with healthy job growth.>> The greatest economy.>> But there's plenty of other baggage as well, from his tarrifs to his temperament, that Republicans in close races may not want voters to be thinking about in the countdown to November 6.

>> Trump's largely avoiding these areas. No visits to New Jersey where four GOP lawmakers are at risk. Steering clear of California where Republicans could lose seven house seats. He's sticking the safe territory. Holding rallies in deep red cities like Elko, Nevada, and Missoula, Montana. On Wednesday, he's going to Tiny Mosinee, Wisconsin.
00:01:54
>> Thank you, Texas. Thank you.>> This is a rally the base election and Trump is targeting his most enthusiastic supporters, telling them that it's a referendum on him, but that's also a strong motivator for Democrats to turn out and vote. If Republicans lose big on election day, it'll be harder for Trump to pin the blame on somebody else.
