Unlike Trump, who has little path to victory if he loses Georgia, Biden has multiple routes to the 270 Electoral College votes necessary to win if he falters here. The Democrat has focused much of his campaign thus far on the Rust Belt states that Trump flipped in 2016 — Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — as well as Arizona, Florida and North Carolina.
Trump’s campaign, meanwhile, has touted its extensive grassroots organization in Georgia and recently rolled out a barrage of new ads that aim to shift the focus of his re-election bid from law-and-order policies to the economy, one of the issues where polls show the Republican holds an edge.
This will be Trump’s 10th visit to Georgia since taking office, and it comes after a July trip to a UPS facility highlighting a transportation initiative. A string of his surrogates have recently stumped in the state, including appearances from his children Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump within the past week.
