Jill Biden will make Election Day trip to St. Petersburg and Tampa

The former second lady will spend the morning in Florida as the campaigns fight for the state’s 29 Electoral College votes.
Published Nov. 2, 2020|Updated Nov. 3, 2020

Former Second Lady Jill Biden will travel to the Tampa Bay region tomorrow morning to make a final push for voters on behalf of her husband, Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden.

Biden, who visited the area over the weekend, has scheduled stops in Tampa and St. Petersburg where she’ll urge any stragglers to head to the ballot box on Election Day. About 9 million Floridians have already voted early or by mail, and turnout on Tuesday will be key in deciding the winner of the state’s 29 Electoral College votes.

Surrogates for both campaigns have made many stops in the Tampa Bay area over the last week of the race. Former Vice President Biden and President Donald Trump held Tampa rallies at locations 10 miles from each other on Thursday.

Polls open at 7 a.m. tomorrow.
