Barack Obama to follow up Miami visit with rally in Orlando
Obama is stepping up efforts to blunt the final days of the Joe Biden campaign.
Former president Barack Obama will launch a campaign in Orlando on Tuesday to urge Floridians to support their former vice president in this year’s presidential contest.
Obama has stepped up his efforts Blunt for Joe Biden while voters continue to cast their ballots in Florida and across the country. Election day is November 3rd.
Biden’s presidential campaign has not revealed any further details for Obama’s Orlando visit. On Saturday, Obama spoke at a socially distant car rally in Miami on behalf of Biden. Obama put into the presidential term Donald Trump during the speech criticized him for several controversies during his first term.
“You wouldn’t tolerate it from a colleague, you wouldn’t tolerate it from a school principal, you wouldn’t tolerate it from a coach, you wouldn’t tolerate it from a family member,” Obama said.
“’Florida man’ wouldn’t even do this stuff. Why do we accept it from the President of the United States? “
Biden himself also held a car rally in Broward County earlier this month. This structure was adopted to protect attendees during the COVID-19 outbreak. In contrast, President Trump has continued to hold large rallies with tightly packed attendees. Most of these events have moved outside.
A recent poll from St. Pete Polls of the Florida presidential contest showed Biden with a 2-point advantage over Trump. This 49% to 47% lead is well within the survey’s margin of error. The battle for Florida is expected to get to the point, although a Biden win here would almost secure his victory in the 2020 race.
In addition to Obama’s escalating campaign bans, the Democrats are also increasing Obama’s presence on the radio waves. Last week the Democratic National Committee shifted a digital display with the former president in the Miami markets. The 30-second display will be rolled out to other Florida markets.
Obama won Florida in both 2008 and 2012 before Trump took over the state in 2016.
