Presidential candidates work to shore up voting support


MACON, Ga. — President Donald Trump campaigned Friday in Florida and Georgia, neighboring states he carried four years ago.

In Macon, he cited support from former University of Georgia football star Herschel Walker to win favor from his rally crowd. “How good was Herschel Walker?” Trump said as the Georgia crowd roared. “He’s on our side, and he’s an incredible guy.”

Earlier, in Florida, the president claimed the Bidens were “an organized crime family,” based on emails published by the New York Post that revealed details of business dealings in Ukraine and China by Democrat candidate Biden’s son Hunter Biden.

Trump spoke directly to seniors who have increasingly soured on his handling of the pandemic.

“I am moving heaven and earth to safeguard our seniors from the China virus,” Trump said. He also offered an optimistic assessment of recovery from the pandemic.

Biden opened his Michigan swing at a suburban Detroit community center.

“He’s living in a dream world,” Biden said of Trump’s rosy predictions of the pandemic.
