Biden, Trump blaze U.S. campaign trail as early vote surges with 18 days to go

WILMINGTON, Del./DORAL, Fla. (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden planned to hit the campaign trail again on Friday with visits to three battleground states, after displaying their sharply contrasting styles in dueling televised town halls.

Trump lags in opinion polls polling.reuters.com and latest figures from his campaign show he is also behind in fundraising in the final weeks before the Nov. 3 election.

Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee raised some $247.8 million in September, his campaign manager said on Twitter, well behind the $383 million haul of Biden and the Democratic Party.

As the candidates return to the trail, a record 21.2 million Americans already have voted, according the U.S. Elections Project at the University of Florida. About 136.6 million people in total voted in the 2016 election.

Early voting began in Louisiana on Friday, following record turnout this week in Georgia, North Carolina and Texas, competitive states that could decide the election outcome.READ MORE.
