With Election Day two days away, President Trump held rallies Sunday in Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Former vice president Joe Biden spent the day in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, where he also expects to spend most of Monday after a trip to Ohio, a state Trump won by about eight percentage points.

Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), stopped in Georgia and North Carolina, while Vice President Pence attended a church service in North Carolina before returning to Washington in the afternoon.
