Welcome to the Wednesday edition of our daily Virginia Trump campaign update! We will provide our readers with daily updates on the Trump Virginia campaign from today to November 3 (and after…if need be!).
It’s officially 20 days until the election on November 3 – and 17 days until early voting in Virginia closes. President Trump meets Joe Biden in the final presidential debate in eight days.
Voter registration for the 2020 presidential election was Tuesday, and in Virginia a fiber optic cable being accidentally cut in Richmond led to the state’s voter registration site, along with other state agency pages, to crash.
Early voting is still ongoing in Virginia, and over 530,000 ballots have already been cast in person, with another 444,000 votes being cast by mail according to the Virginia Public Access Project.
Part of Team Trump Virginia’s focus this election has been voter registration. Officials with the campaign have talked the importance getting new voters registered after connecting with them in person. The Trump campaign has mobilized the largest grassroots campaign movement in history, and the voter registration and early voting pushes have played a vital role in everything they’ve done.
Earlier in the week, members of the Trump-Pence campaign spoke to members of the media in a teleconference. Members of the campaign made a point about how you’re just now starting to see the Biden campaign mobilize and attempt to connect with voters on the local level.
It’s because the Biden campaign has sat back and waited entirely too long to get active, and they know the ads running on TV aren’t going to move the needle.
With the Trump campaign it’s been the opposite. The campaign just started running TV ads in battleground states, while the volunteers and surrogates for the campaign have been on the ground all over the nation.
President Trump will be holding a rally in Greenville, North Carolina tomorrow at 1 p.m. at the Greenville Airport. Doors for the event will open at 10 a.m. Temperature checks will be conducted, masks will be handed out, and attendees will have access to hand sanitizer.
The president has been on the road all week after his quarantine at the White House was lifted. By the time President Trump hits North Carolina on Thursday, he’ll have already appeared in Florida, Pennsylvania and Iowa. The Virginia Star will provide coverage of the president’s rally in North Carolina.
