US mid-terms: Race rows mire campaign homestretch


Race-baiting allegations have mired the homestretch of the US mid-term elections, turning it into one of the ugliest campaigns in recent times.

US networks have withdrawn President Donald Trump’s ad about a cop-killing illegal immigrant.
Meanwhile, racist automated calls targeted prominent African-American candidates in Florida and Georgia.
Control of Congress is up for grabs in Tuesday’s poll, which is being seen as a referendum on Mr Trump.
His ability to govern in the final two years of his term will hinge upon the outcome of votes for all 435 seats in the House, and 35 of the 100 Senate seats.-BBC
