"The truth is, the American people in 2016 rejected the policy and direction of Barack Obama when they elected President Donald Trump", Mr Pence said in the Fox News interview, which is set to air on Fox News Sunday.

On Friday, Obama made his first appearance in the midterm election battle, in a speech at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign, where he accepted an ethics in government award.

"Just a day after a new report showed job growth exceeding expectations yet again, Obama is stepping back into the spotlight to support candidates who represent the failed policies that have plagued California", said Christiana Purves, regional communications director for the RNC.

The most interesting argument in Obama's speech in IL today was that both these conclusions are wrong.

In a nod to the turbulence of the past week - which saw allegations of a secret "resistance" working inside the White House - the 57-year-old Obama poured scorn on the idea that "everything will turn out okay" because some of Trump's staff are secretly ignoring the boss's orders.

Obama hadn't publicly criticized Trump prior to the speech, although he took a veiled jab at the president in his eulogy for the late Sen. "I'm sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep", the president said.

"This is a government for everybody, it's not for sale, that's what we believe in", Obama said.

The Republican Party of Orange County sent out an email Friday signed by Rep. Mimi Walters, R-Laguna Niguel, encouraging party members "to volunteer at your closest Republican field office to make phone calls or knock on doors" this weekend.

Interested in Barack Obama? "It works for me", Whitaker said. "As a fellow citizen, not as an ex-president", he said, "but as a fellow citizen, I am here to deliver a simple message and that is that you need to vote because our democracy depends on it".

Mike Levin, who is running against Republican Diane Harkey for the 49th Congressional District seat being vacated by Republican Darrell Issa, paid tribute to the former president last month after receiving his endorsement. According to him, the November elections are truly more important than any others that have occurred within his lifetime, as it has the power to change the fate and restore true democracy to America. "I found that he's very, very good for sleeping". The biggest political shock came in the 2016 presidential election when Orange County voters chose Hillary Clinton over Trump.

Republicans say they aren't anxious.

Obama urged the Democrats at his first rally of 2018 to get out and vote in November, telling them that the dismay they feel about Washington right now means nothing is they don't follow through by voicing their displeasure at the ballot box. That's how real change starts, Obama said.

There are now 237 seats held by Republicans in the House of Representatives and 193 held by Democrats.

Having devoted most of his time since leaving office to writing his memoirs and setting up his presidential foundation in Chicago, Obama will be back in the limelight in coming weeks with campaign stops planned in California Saturday, and OH on Thursday.
