FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Joe Biden will make at least one more visit to South Florida before Election Day.

The Democratic presidential nominee will be in Broward County on Thursday, his campaign announced.

No further details about the upcoming visit have been revealed, aside from the fact that the former vice president will also stop in Tampa as part of the trip.

Biden was in Broward on Oct. 13, when he held a drive-in rally at Miramar Regional Park and spoke to seniors at Southwest Focal Point Community Center in Pembroke Pines.

The heavily democratic Broward County is key to Biden’s chances in the critical swing state of Florida, which carries 29 electoral votes.

Former President Barack Obama rallied voters in North Miami on Saturday in support of Biden. Obama will be in Orlando on Tuesday holding another drive-in rally.

President Donald Trump has also made several campaign trips to Florida, and on Saturday he was in Palm Beach County casting his ballot.

Election Day is Nov. 3, though millions of Floridians have voted already.
