MIAMI (WFLA) — Barack Obama made a stop in South Florida Saturday to campaign on behalf of his former Vice President Joe Biden.
The trip was Obama’s first in-person campaign event for Biden in Florida. It was a drive-in event.
The former president made his first in-person campaign pitch Wednesday for Biden, urging voters in Philadelphia not to sit out the election and risk reelecting President Donald Trump.
President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence also had Florida stops to make Saturday. Pence will be holding a rally in Lakeland while Trump cast his presidential ballot.
