Trump, Biden Campaigns Crisscross Florida In Final Week

Oct 26, 2020

With the election approaching next Tuesday, both presidential campaigns are trying to drum up support in the battleground of Florida this week.

Former president Barack Obama visits Orlando Tuesday for a drive-in rally for Joe Biden — Obama’s second appearance in Florida in three days.

Biden himself will appear Thursday in Broward County and Tampa after President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence made campaign appearances in the state last week.

And Tuesday brings multiple appearances by the Trump campaign: Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, will visit Sarasota and Miami, and his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, will be in Cocoa, Panama City Beach and Pensacola, according to the Trump campaign.

Election Day is next Tuesday, November 3. Early, in-person voting continues in Duval County until Sunday, Nov. 1 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 20 sites.

Vote-by-mail ballots can be dropped at any early voting site during operating hours. Otherwise, the U.S. Postal Service recommends mailing them back to the election supervisor no later than Tuesday, Oct. 27, to ensure they can be delivered by 7 p.m on Election Day. Ballots received later than that will not be counted.
