Joe BidenJoe BidenBiden leads Trump by 36 points nationally among Latinos: poll GOP set to release controversial Biden report Can Donald Trump maintain new momentum until this November? MORE’s campaign is inching into Trump country, putting money behind new ads in Iowa and Georgia as it seeks to expand the battleground map and lift Democratic candidates in the battle for the Senate.
The Biden campaign has been raking in money, building up an astonishing $140 million advantage in cash on hand over the Trump campaign for the homestretch to Nov. 3.
Biden leads comfortably in the national polls and in most of the battleground states, giving him flexibility to go on offense in states the president won easily in 2016, such as Iowa and Ohio, or in traditionally red states, like Georgia and Texas.
“Biden enjoys a major cash advantage and it’s strategically smart to expand and press the money advantage, especially if, in time, it forces Trump to play more defense,” said Michael Halle, who helped run 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonBiden leads Trump by 36 points nationally among Latinos: poll Democratic super PAC to hit Trump in battleground states over coronavirus deaths Battle lines drawn on precedent in Supreme Court fight MORE’s battleground states operation. “The key is Biden has the ability to fully resource likely tipping point states and expand, while Trump does not.”
Biden’s campaign has largely played it safe so far. The candidate has only visited the core battlegrounds of Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida, or states he’s expected to win, such as Minnesota.
