Budget cuts dog Democrats

Anger in the US state of Arizona as voters prepare to make their choices in midterm elections.

    With just over a week to go before the US midterm elections, campaigning efforts have gone into overdrive.

    Barack Obama, the president, returned to Washington after a frantic four-day campaign across five states to try and shore up support for his Democratic party, which is facing tough challenges in many parts of the country.

    Some Americans feel that the government's budget cuts are strangling public services, such as public education - which was one of Obama's priorities when he took office.

    In the state of Arizona, Lake Havasu City's schools have started to run out of money.

    Al Jazeera's Casey Kauffman met voters in the city, where they are now faced with a tough choice this coming election.
