Biden, Trump Ramp Up Campaigns In Battleground States As Pandemic Rages On

The election is seven weeks away, and both Joe Biden and President Trump are hitting the campaign trail.

President Trump is campaigning in Northern California on Monday after facing criticism for an indoor rally he held in Henderson, Nevada, where thousands of his supporters attended and few wore masks.

Also, former Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is spending $100 million out of his personal fortune to help the Joe Biden campaign in Florida.

Host Jeremy Hobson gets the latest from NPR’s Mara Liasson.
