-Democratic leaders urge Joe Biden supporters to vote early and in huge numbers amid concerns that nothing short of a decisive win for the Democratic candidate will stave off a move by President Donald Trump to contest the result of the November 3 election.
The primetime event comes after a fiery back-and-forth on the fate of the second presidential debate, which was originally scheduled for Thursday in Miami but ultimately canceled last Friday. The next and final debate will be held October 22. The event will air at 8 p.m. for one hour, with Guthrie moderating a conversation between Trump and Florida voters. The president participated in an ABC News town hall in September.

In another re-election campaign rally following his Covid-19 diagnosis earlier this month, US President Donald Trump donned a "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) cap and pulled off his tie to cheers from supporters in Des Moines, Iowa. It is the first of four planned campaign stops over the next four days. Over the weekend, Trump will likely visit OH and Wisconsin, a senior campaign adviser told the Post, and he wants to go to North Carolina soon.
