    Former US President Barack Obama called on voters to choose "honest" politics at a rally in Georgia on Friday in the lead-up to the midterm elections.

    "You can vote for a politics that is decent, for a politics that is honest, for a politics that is lawful, for a politics that tries to do right by people," Obama said at the rally in Georgia for Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate who is hoping to become the country's first black female governor.

    Obama also criticized Donald Trump's plan to send active-duty troops to the US-Mexico border to assist Border Patrol agents, calling it a "political stunt at the border."

    According to Deutsche Welle, Obama also spoke in Florida on Friday and urged voters to turn out for candidates from the Democrats and criticized Republican efforts to dismantle his political legacy.

The outcome will determine if the Republican Party continues to control Congress.
