Obama encouraged voters to cast their ballots for his former vice president and Biden's running mate, Kamala Harris.

With election day quickly approaching, both the Republican and Democratic parties are bringing out key players to campaign ahead of November 3.

One of the crucial states they are focusing on is Florida.

Just hours later and a little farther north, Vice President Mike Pence rallied in Lakeland on behalf of President Trump.

The topics were similar to those we've heard in the debates, the economy, the COVID-19 crisis, healthcare, and race in America.
