Washington [US], October 29 (ANI): US President Donald Trump and presidential nominee Joe Biden are slated to hold duelling rallies on Thursday in Tampa in Florida, an extremely crucial general election battleground state, with less than a week remaining before the Election Day.

Trump will go first, holding an early afternoon rally outside the Raymond James Stadium, while Biden will go second, headlining a socially distanced drive-in-car rally in the early evening, reported Fox News.

The former vice president arrives in Tampa after holding a campaign event earlier in the day in Democratic-rich Broward County in southeast Florida.
According to Fox News, Trump will get an extra bonus, as the Raymond James Stadium is a site for in-person early voting, and the Trump campaign is banking on some supporters casting a ballot either before or after the rally.
With 29 electoral votes up for grabs, Florida's the largest of the traditional battleground states.
Meanwhile, the numbers for the pre-election voting in the presidential election in the US have surpassed those of the 2016 election.
The US Presidential Election is scheduled to be held on November 3. (ANI)
