Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris speaks at a virtual campaign event
Further details about Harris’ trip to Cleveland, such as timing and location, have yet to be announced. The Biden-Harris campaign rescheduled the trip after an initial visit planned for Oct. 16 was canceled after a Harris staffer tested positive for coronavirus.
President Trump’s campaign is also scheduled to make stops in Ohio this weekend. Vice President Mike Pence will hold a rally near Toledo, Ohio, on Friday, while President Trump is scheduled to host a “Make America Great Again” event in Circleville, Ohio at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday.
A Fox News poll of likely voters released earlier this week showed Trump with a 48-45% lead over Biden in the Buckeye State. The results marked a reversal compared to September, when polls showed Biden with a 5-point edge over Trump.
Ohio holds 18 electoral votes and is considered a key swing state in the 2020 presidential election. Trump won Ohio by 8 percentage points in 2016.
More than 1.1 million Ohio residents have already cast ballots since early voting began on Oct. 6, state officials said Tuesday.
