Transcript for Trump, Biden hit trail hard as record early voter turnout continues
the election. President trump and former vice president Joe Biden are hitting the campaign trail hard focusing on key battlegrounds. President trump holding rallies overnight in Florida and Georgia while Biden was mobilizing voters in Michigan. The candidates painting very different pictures about where we are in this coronavirus pandemic. And as the candidates were out stumping for votes, early voting opened up in Louisiana leading to long lines in some places like we've seen in other parts of the country and for the first time ever voters will be casting ballots at the famed Fenway park in Boston to give people a big open air space to vote. ABC's Rachel Scott is in Washington, D.C., one of several cities nationwide where the women's March will be focusing on getting out the vote as well. Rachel, good morning. Reporter: Whit, good morning and thousands are expected at that March here in Washington. It's one of 400 events happening all across the country with just both sides trying to frame the race around the pandemic. The president insisting that we are rounding the corner as his rival Joe Biden warns that with the rise in cases under the president's leadership it's only getting worse. Overnight, president trump behind in the polls hitting the campaign trail in states he carried four years ago. In Georgia, a Republican stronghold even contemplating a scenario where he would lose the election. Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I going to do? I'm going to say I lost to the worst candidate in the history I'm not going to feel so good. Maybe I'll have to leave the country, I don't know. Reporter: And in Florida, speaking directly to seniors trying to win back that critical voting bloc his rival is now showing strength with. Seniors will be the first in line for the vaccine and we will soon be ending the pandemic. The light at the end of the tunnel is near. We are rounding the turn. Reporter: On that same day the president made those remarks, the U.S. Hit a grim milestone -- 8 million coronavirus cases. Hours later Georgia state representative Vernon Jones seen crowd surfing at the president's rally without a mask passed around by supporters who weren't wearing one either. Joe Biden in Michigan taking on the president claiming trump is in deep denial and Americans are dying because of it. "Turn the corner." My lord. It's not disappearing, in fact, it's on the rise again. It's getting worse as predicted. Reporter: A new pew research poll showing the vice president leading nationally by 30 points with Latino, a key voting demographic. The Biden campaign sitting down with Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez. My kind of hope and quest for the Latino community is that they start understanding their power. They understand -- Exactly right. What they mean to the country. That their vote counts. Reporter: More than 22 million Americans have already cast their ballots. From New Orleans to Chicago, early voters rushing to the polls. Charles gill said he would wait in line for as long as it takes. The people before me that stood in line for me to give me this opportunity to stand here, I'm pretty sure they went through much more than I had to do. Reporter: With just 17 days to go, former president Barack Obama will be hitting the campaign trail too, for the first time in person. At a democratic fund-raiser saying winning in November is a necessity. A lot of times people used to call me no drama Obama. It's true. I don't engage in a lot of hyperbole, but this one really is the most important election that I can think of because our country is at a castroads. Reporter: But the battle for the white house has already shaped up to be a bitter and ugly fight. Senator David perdue under fire for these comments he made about his colleague and Biden's running mate, senator kamala Harris, at the president's rally in Georgia. Kamala or kamala, mala, mala, I don't know, whatever. Reporter: Harris' spokesperson firing back. Calling the remarks incredibly in this final stretch, some Republicans are creating distance between themselves and the president. Two Republican governors -- two Republican governors, Charlie baker in Massachusetts and Larry hogan in Maryland now saying they will not be voting for president trump and senator Ben sasse of Nebraska warning that if president trump does lose this election it could bring the senate down with him. Eva. It is going to be an interesting couple of weeks, Rachel. Thank you so much.
