BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. — As the election draws near, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden will make a series of stops in Florida on Thursday.

Less than a week after former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump visited the Sunshine State, Biden will travel to Broward County and Tampa.

The Biden campaign said a drive-in rally in Broward County will take place at 1:30 p.m. No other details have been released.

With 29 electoral votes, Florida is crucial to both presidential candidates, but especially Trump, who moved his official residence to his Palm Beach estate Mar-a-Lago from New York last year.

A Florida loss would make it nearly impossible for Trump to reach the 270 electoral votes needed to retain the White House.

The latest polls show the candidates within 1% of each other in Florida.
