With just 11 days until the midterm elections, both parties are still "grappling with race," dominating the conversation from smaller campaigns all the way up to the White House, the Associated Press reports.

The big picture: Democrats believe the GOP is trying to mobilize white voters and increase their turnout, while the GOP thinks Democrats are more willing to use race as a tool to get more votes, per the AP.
