Election Live Updates: Trump campaigns out West as Biden focuses on virus

2

President Trump is hoping to drum up support in the battleground state of Nevada, holding a rally Wednesday afternoon across the border in neighboring Arizona due to the Silver State’s coronavirus restrictions. 

The president’s swing out West comes with just six days until the election, as early voting totals continue to show high turnout across the country. A senior Trump campaign official told CBS News the president plans to visit 10 states during the last week of the campaign, and hold 11 rallies in the 48 hours before Election Day.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden is continuing to focus on the COVID-19 pandemic, scheduling a briefing with public health experts and planning to make remarks in Wilmington, Delaware. The U.S. is experiencing a surge in new infections, with more than 83,000 cases reported on both Monday and Tuesday, a new record.

Early vote totals show more than 71 million Americans have already cast their ballots, accounting for roughly 51% of the overall total from 2016.
