President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden will both hold events in Florida on Thursday as the Sunshine State once again proves to be a pivotal battleground in the presidential race.

Here’s where candidates on the Republican and Democratic ticket will be campaigning on Thursday:

President Trump will hold a rally in Tampa, Fla., at 1:30 p.m. Eastern time just outside Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The president will fly to North Carolina for a rally in Fayetteville, scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. Eastern. In addition to being a presidential battleground, North Carolina is home to a key Senate race between Sen. Thom Tillis (R) and Democrat Cal Cunningham.

Vice President Pence will hold two rallies of his own. His first event of the day is in Des Moines, Iowa, at 1:30 p.m. Central time. He is likely to be joined there by Sen. Joni Ernst (R), who is in a difficult reelection fight of her own. Pence will then fly to Reno, Nev., for a rally at 5 p.m. Pacific time.

Biden will also be in Florida for two events on Thursday. He will deliver remarks at a drive-in event in Broward County in the southern part of the state in the afternoon. Biden will then travel to Tampa for a drive-in event in the evening.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will take part in an event aimed at mobilizing members of the Divine Nine, which represent Black Greek letter organizations. She will also participate in a virtual fundraiser and a rally with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
