President Donald Trump and Democratic contender Joe Biden are in full swing of the final push as the Nov. 3 date approaches.
And they’ll be clashing head-to-head… sort of.
On Thursday both campaigns will be in the battleground state of Florida.

Trump will hold a rally outside of Raymond James Stadium, the home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Tampa, Fla., while Biden will attend two “drive-in” meetings — one in Broward County and the other in Tampa as well.
The two candidates are making their way into the Sunshine State seeking to a crucial bump amid some conflicting polls.
The Hill notes that the RealClearPolitics (RCP) poll average shows that Trump has an edge by a point so far as we head into the last weekend before the big vote. However, there are polls, such as the NBC News/Marist College poll that show Biden with a four-point advantage.
So it’s fair to say that a simple visit could swing in momentum in either direction. Let’s not forget that Trump in 2016 won the state by just a single point.
But Trump isn’t ending his campaign stump in Florida Thursday.
He’ll reportedly head to Fayetteville, North Carolina for a rally scheduled at 6:30 p.m. where he’s likely to also push for Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., who’s locked in a tight battle for congressional re-election. It may prove to be a worthy endeavor. The RealClearPolitics poll average of some polls show Biden up by less than one point in the state.
The vice presidential candidates are getting in on the action, too.

Vice President Mike Pence will appear in Des Moines, Iowa, and according to The Hill. He may be joined by. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa who’s also in a tough re-election fight.
Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris meanwhile will join forces with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. for a virtual fundraiser.
