The candidates are fanning out across the state, trying to win the hearts—and votes—of the nearly 7 million registered voters who haven’t cast their ballots yet.

Former Vice President and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, and their spouses are planning to “barnstorm” Pennsylvania on the last day of the presidential campaign.

The candidates and their spouses will “fan out across all four corners of the state,” the Biden-Harris campaign announced in a news release Friday morning. The campaign has not yet released details.

And that’s after Jill Biden visits Montgomery County on Friday, Joe Biden visits a yet-to-be-disclosed location in the state on Sunday, and other representatives of the campaign visit the Philadelphia area over the weekend.

President Donald Trump also is planning campaign stops in the Keystone State in the last days of the presidential campaign.

The Keystone State is considered by many election experts to be the “tipping point state,” or the state that pushes Trump or Democratic nominee Joe Biden across the 270-electoral vote threshold needed for victory. And approximately 7 million of the state’s 9 million registered voters have yet to cast their ballots.
