Jill Biden set to make a campaign stop in St. Pete Friday

The 'Get Out the Vote Drive-in Rally' will kickoff at 6:40 p.m.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — As presidential campaigning continues, it seems like the attention on our battleground state is not letting up.

Following an appearance from the Democratic presidential nominee himself, Joe Biden's wife, Dr. Jill Biden, will make two stops in Florida on Friday.

Her first stop will be a "Women for Biden" event in Lake Mary starting at 4:15 p.m. before heading right here to Tampa Bay for a "Get Out the Vote Drive-in Rally" in St. Petersburg at 6:40 p.m.

The premise for her visit is to "encourage supporters to make a plan to vote early and to join the campaign in getting out the vote across the state," according to a release.

Jill Biden's visit comes at a time where it appears getting Florida voters' attention is key. As of Oct. 15, just over 2 million mail-in ballots have already been submitted in the state.
