The electoral campaign intensifies in the pendular states | 18 days before the elections, 15.6% of the total votes of the 2016 presidential elections have already voted | Trump says he is willing to increase the economic aid package due to the crisis
The campaign intensifies in the Pendulum States less than three weeks before the November 3 elections. The last stretch has focused on the states where President Donald Trump won in 2016 with little margin. This Friday the president plans to hold an event in Florida and then travel to Georgia, while Vice President Mike Pence is on his way to North Carolina. Democrat Joe Biden plans to travel to Michigan, a state that Trump narrowly took away four years ago. The Democrat will visit Philadelphia (Pennsylvania), a key state in the November 3 elections that gave Trump victory in 2016. Former President Barack Obama has confirmed that he will hold a campaign event next Wednesday to support Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. 18 days before the elections, he has already voted 15.6% of the total votes for the 2016 presidential elections. Both Texas and Georgia registered long lines of voters this week.
On Thursday night the candidates fought a duel for the television audience. Both participated in meetings with voters. The US president spoke with voters from Miami at an event organized by NBC. For his part, the Democratic candidate answered the questions of the citizens of Philadelphia, in a meeting broadcast by ABC News. The first television audience data have yielded a victory for the Democrat this Friday.

I’ll go higher, “he said.
