WASHINGTON (NewsNation Now) — President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will campaign in three key states Friday.

Trump is heading to Florida and Georgia Friday, while Biden will visit Michigan. The campaign stops come a day after the candidates took part in dueling town halls

The competing televised events, both held at the same time Thursday night, showcased the differences between the two candidates just two and a half weeks before the November election. Trump, Biden tied in North Carolina, NewsNation/Emerson poll shows 

During the NBC News town hall in Miami, Trump addressed his administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 217,000 Americans.

Biden was pressed on his stance on expanding the Supreme Court if Trump’s nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, is seated before Election Day. But he didn’t offer a direct response.

What does packing the US Supreme Court mean? 

Trump and Biden were both originally scheduled to face-off for the second presidential debate in Miami Thursday night. But the event was canceled after the debates commission shifted the format to virtual and the president backed out.
