Thanks for joining us as we head into the election homestretch. There are now only five days to go until officials start counting votes to determine the winner.
Here's a summary of some of the day's key events:
- Both Biden and Trump were in Florida today, a state with a whopping 29 electoral college points that both sides consider key to their victory strategy
- They each delivered speeches typical to their campaigns, with Trump honing in on Biden's alleged lack of stamina and claims that he will shutdown the US economy due to the pandemic. Biden went after Trump with the usual attack lines, saying the president had divided America and botched the pandemic response
- Over 80 million ballots have already been cast, leading to speculation that voter turnout may be much higher this year than in years past.
- Hawaii became the first state to surpass its 2016 turnout after over 457,000 of the state's residents voted early
- Trump was forced to postpone his evening North Carolina rally due to high winds from Hurricane Zeta. The event is now rescheduled for Monday, the day before the election
- Biden will be speaking in Tampa this evening, the same city where Trump spoke this afternoon
- Tomorrow will be Biden's busiest campaign day since he won his party's nomination. His drive-in rally schedule includes Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota
- Trump's rally schedule for Friday includes Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota
- Walmart says they have taken guns and ammo off display shelves, due concerns with civil unrest
