Oct. 31: Where Trump and Biden will be campaigning
With three days left until Election Day, President Trump is putting all of his focus on Pennsylvania, while Democratic nominee Joe Biden will make his first joint appearance with former President Barack Obama.
Here’s a look at where candidates on the Democratic and Republican presidential tickets will be campaigning on Saturday:
President Trump will hold four rallies on Saturday, all of them in different parts of Pennsylvania. The president will start the day with a rally in Bucks County at noon Eastern time, followed by rallies every few hours after that in Reading, Butler and Montoursville.
The president’s intense focus on Pennsylvania reflects its importance to his path to 270 electoral votes.
Vice President Pence, meanwhile, will make two separates stops in North Carolina, starting with an 11:30 a.m. rally in Elm City and finishing with a 1:30 p.m. event in Elizabeth City. The events double as a chance to boost vulnerable Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) in his re-election bid.
On the Democratic side, Joe Biden will be joined in Michigan by former President Barack Obama. The two men will speak at a drive-in rally in Flint in the afternoon before holding another event in Detroit on Saturday evening.
Vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will be in Florida holding events in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Lake Worth working to mobilize voters.
Here’s how the race for president in each of those states is shaping up based on recent polling:
Biden leads Trump in Pennsylvania by 3.6 percentage points, according to a RealClearPolitics average of recent polls. Trump won the state by roughly 44,000 votes in 2016.
