Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, will campaign Monday in South Florida, three days after President Donald Trump holds a rally in Sanford.

The Biden campaign on Wednesday announced the trip to South Florida but did not provide details.

NBC News, however, reported that the Democratic candidate will appear Monday night in Miami at a town-hall event hosted by NBC “Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt. Trump, meanwhile, is slated to hold a rally Friday evening at Orlando Sanford International Airport.

The appearances come about a month before the Nov. 3 general election, with Florida a key battleground in the race between Trump and Biden.
