This is how the presidential campaigns are going on Monday, October 26th.
There is roughly one week left until the November election, but Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is in Delaware, and no campaign events are scheduled for Monday, even as President Trump heads to Pennsylvania to strip his opponent of the lead.
By Monday afternoon, Biden’s campaigners told reporters that the former vice president would be making a “local stop” in Wilmington.
Biden’s campaign last week promised he would “campaign aggressively” in the last 11 days leading up to the election, but after Thursday night’s second and final debate, the candidate only ventured out of Delaware once: on Saturday to Pennsylvania for two. the campaign stops.
“He will be across the country in the states where the battles are taking place,” Biden’s campaign manager Keith Bedingfield told reporters last week. – He will fight for every vote. You will see him in person at events. You will see how he conducts virtual events. ”
Trump’s campaign often targets Biden due to his lack of campaigning – Trump called his Democrat opponent “Basement Joe” – and echoed that criticism on Monday.
“No event for Joe Biden today ???” Jason Miller, senior adviser to the Trump campaign, tweeted. “He’s crazy!” (Call for closure refers to a candidate or campaign indicating to the press that they will not be hosting more events, usually until the end of the day.)
The candidate is expected to visit several wavering states in the coming days, starting with a visit to Georgia on Tuesday.
The average of polls conducted by RealClearPolitics shows that Biden is a strong leader nationwide, although he is tougher on key battlefields, in states where candidates must win to win 270 electoral votes.
This is how the presidential campaigns will play out on Monday, October 26th.
Trump is due to travel to Pennsylvania this morning for three campaign rallies. The President will begin the day with remarks about American workers at the Allentown rally. From there, Trump will head to Lititz – population 9,369 – for his second rally of the day, scheduled to begin at 1:30 pm. ET.
Trump will conclude a series of rallies in Martinsburg, about two hours west of Harrisburg.
Pennsylvania is an important state on the battlefield, which Trump slightly defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016. But on average, RealClearPolitics polls show Biden 5.1 percentage points ahead of him.
