WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — President Donald Trump is sharpening his aim at familiar political targets who face elections this year. He struck that theme in a campaign-style rally Saturday night in an Upper Midwest state of Michigan that gave him a surprising victory in the 2016 election.

Trump has been urging voters to support Republicans for Congress as a way of advancing his agenda. In his rally in Washington Township, he repeatedly pointed to Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan as one of the Democrats who needed to be voted out.

Earlier Saturday Trump tweeted criticism of Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana over his role in the failed nomination of White House doctor Ronny Jackson to run the Department of Veterans Affairs.
