President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden have kicked off Election Day before a night — or many nights — of anxiously awaiting results.
Compared to the frenetic pace in the final days of a presidential campaign, Election Day is typically a demure affair as staffers are exhausted and there’s relatively little candidates can do to make a sizable difference to their fates.
Biden stopped early at St. Joseph on the Brandywine Roman Catholic Church and visited his son Beau’s gravesite before hitting the trail and heading to his birthplace of Scranton, Pa., and later Philadelphia. The campaign is keeping the exact location of his events close to the vest.
Trump has several media hits scheduled, leading off with a “Fox and Friends” interview that started more than a half hour behind schedule.
“You three are friends,” Trump told the Fox News morning show hosts, who have served as a receptive outlet for the president dating back to the early days of his candidacy in 2015.
During the interview Trump teased a “big series of phone calls” where he will be “talking to some people that have been very important.”
The president so far has only one appearance on tap. He’s scheduled to pop into his campaign headquarters in Arlington, Va., late morning for a short visit before returning to the White House, where he’s planning an election watch party with hundreds of invited guests.
Vice President Mike Pence has a slate of nine media interviews throughout the day, with four scheduled from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. alone.
Biden’s running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, and her husband are making last-minute stops in Detroit, Mich., and Columbus, Ohio, before meeting up with Biden in Wilmington, Del.
