President Donald Trump, left, and Vice President Mike Pence look to the crowd during a campaign rally Friday, Sept. 25, 2020, in Newport News, Va.

President Donald Trump will hold campaign rallies Friday in two of Florida’s Republican strongholds as he tries to turn out supporters in the Nov. 3 election while Vice President Mike Pence will campaign in Jacksonville Saturday.

At the time of this story's pubication, Pence’s team had not yet released details for the vice president’s visit to Jacksonville, other than to confirm it would be on Saturday, Oct. 24.

Trump is slated to hold a rally at 4:30 p.m. Friday in The Villages, which is a big Central Florida retirement community that is a regular stop for GOP candidates, Trump’s campaign said Wednesday.

He will go from The Villages to Pensacola for a 7 p.m. rally in a region that typically provides large margins for Republicans.

Polls indicate Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden are in a toss-up race in Florida, widely viewed as a crucial state for Trump’s re-election bid.
