TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — It’s often said the road to the White House runs through Florida and, if the schedules for both presidential campaigns are any indication, that rings true this year.
Both President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, have put a strong focus on the Sunshine State in the final stretch before Election Day.
While both campaigns have sent several surrogates to the state in the past week, with more visits scheduled in the coming days, the candidates themselves are both set to appear in Tampa on Thursday. President Trump has scheduled a 1:30 p.m. rally at Raymond James Stadium while Biden is set to hold a drive-in rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds at 6:30 p.m.
Looking forward, Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris announced Thursday that she would visit Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida on Saturday to encourage Floridians to vote. Elsewhere in Florida on Saturday, Eric Trump is scheduled to visit Jacksonville Beach and Longwood.
