Within the past several weeks, battleground states in the 2020 presidential election have become thrust to the forefront of national conversations. Likewise, both Trump and Biden set their sights on winning these states that are presumed to significantly impact this year’s election.
The president, along with members of his family, administration, and campaign team are moving swiftly and effectively. Earlier this month Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump spent time in Texas and Georgia to campaign on behalf of their father. Less than one week ago, Vice President Mike Pence also spent time in Arizona to campaign for Trump’s re-election.

The 45th president’s lead over the former vice president comes as the latter relies on media ads to carry his presidential campaign across the finish line. Throughout the 2020 race, Biden has repeatedly taken a dialed-back approach that contrasts with President Trump getting out and about before the people he wants to vote for him.
Upcoming Election Milestones
The three presidential debates are set along with one vice presidential debate between running mates Mike Pence and Kamala Harris.
September 29 will mark the first presidential debate between Trump and Biden. Despite Democrats urging Biden to weasel his way out of the debate, it appears that the showdown will, in fact, happen.
Debate experts and political pundits have already stated that the former vice president lacks the proper preparation for tough questions from moderator Chris Wallace and challenges from President Trump.
The president himself has publically gone on the record and stated that he’d like himself and Biden to take drug tests prior to the first presidential debate. Trump also warned that the former vice president’s allies may attempt to give him certain drugs to enhance his debate performance.
