Washington: US President Trump will be in the final campaign mode in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for his 2020 campaign rally Monday night, while Joe Biden will be holding a drive-in rally with Lady Gaga in Pittsburgh.
Mr. Trump spent the day before Election Day barnstorming swing states, holding five rallies in four states. He kicked things off in Fayetteville, North Carolina, before speaking just outside Biden’s hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania. Mr. Trump then went on to hold a rally with Vice President Mike Pence in Traverse City, Michigan, and then to Kenosha, Wisconsin. He will cap things off Monday night in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Biden kicked things off in Ohio with a drive-in rally, but the campaign focused on Pennsylvania, with Biden in Pittsburgh and Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff holding a drive-in rally with John Legend in Philadelphia.
In Texas, where early voter turnout surpassed the total voter turnout in 2016, a federal judge on Monday rejected a lawsuit filed by four Republicans seeking to prevent officials from counting about 127,000 votes cast at drive-thru polling locations in the Houston area. Republicans have already filed an appeal.
As of Monday, 97 million Americans have already voted early, suggesting the possibility of a record voter turnout at the polls this year.
