Transcript for Trump and Biden try to ride debate momentum into final stretch
said the virus is, quote, going away. Meanwhile today Joe Biden heads to the crucial state of Pennsylvania where he will likely face questions about his assertion in Thursday night's debate that he would transition America off fossil fuels. ABC's white house correspondent Rachel Scott has the latest from the villages in Florida where the president spoke yesterday. Rachel, good morning to you. Reporter: Eva, good morning. The president holding those back-to-back rallies here in Florida. His campaign knows if they lose this state, they are likely to lose the entire election and with just days to go the president's end game strategy, protect the states he won in 2016. Just over a week until election day president trump on a final campaign blitz spending most of his time in states he won back in 2016. Now we're going to win the state of Florida. We're going to win four more years in the white house. Reporter: In Florida, the president packing in supporters at the villages, the nation's largest retirement community still insisting the U.S. Is rounding the corner with the pandemic. We're not entering a dark winter. We're entering the final turn and approaching the light at the end of the tunnel. Reporter: But the U.S. Is facing a surge in cases. A record-setting 83,000 reported Friday alone and seniors have borne the brunt of the pandemic. Polls showing older voters who have leaned Republican in every presidential election since 2004 now shifting towards Joe Biden. As the president made his pitch, just miles away, these two registered Republicans say they want him out. He has done too much damage to this country. Reporter: On the campaign trail two stark responses to fighting the virus. I'll go to every governor and urge them to mandate mask wearing in their states. If they refuse, I'll go to the mayors and county executives and get local masking requirements in place nationwide. Did you hear him last night? I'd lock down the country. We're not locking down anything. We're not going to lock down the country. Reporter: The president seizing on Biden's debate comments about fossil fuels putting the former vp on defense. That could be one of the worst mistakes made in presidential debate history. We're not going to get rid of fossil fuels. We're going to get rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels. We won't get rid of fossil fuel for a long time. Probably not until 2050. Reporter: Around the country record turnout. At least 54 million Americans have already voted. I thought because he was not a, quote, politician and made a lot of promises he has kept those promises and made them so 2020 was a no-brainer for me to vote for president trump. Reporter: From out the door lines in Indiana to curbside voting in Texas. To see the long line was fantastic. I don't mind standing in that line. I just want to vote. Reporter: Mike pence voting early too casting his ballot there in his home state of Indiana. Six states already surpassing 1 million in-person votes but in Georgia hours long lines once again prompting allegations of voter suppression. This is not a sign of excitement. It's a sign of incompetence. Reporter: Senator kamala Harris urging voters at a drive-in rally to cast their ballot early. We have to at some point sit back and think why are they trying to make it so difficult and confusing for us to vote? And I think the answer is because they know our power. Reporter: President trump will be voting early today in Florida. Both campaigns now battling over voters in the sunshine state. Former president Barack Obama will be on the ground in Miami today campaigning for Joe Biden. This state absolutely critical. No candidate in the last six election cycles has gone on to win the white house without winning Florida. Whit? That final stretch, Rachel Scott for us, thank you so much.
