The ads will be positive in nature, using Biden’s own words to portray “a voice of clarity and moral authority that the country desperately needs,” the campaign said.
Meanwhile, the Trump campaign said it has received over one million ticket requests for Trump’s first campaign rally in three months, a huge event to be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday night. The campaign plans to use footage of the event in election ads.
Trump initially planned to hold the rally on Juneteenth, but rescheduled after a public backlash for holding it on that date and in a city known for one of the nation’s bloodiest race massacres, in 1921.
Some public health officials warned that Trump’s rally, to be held inside a 20,000-seat arena, could worsen the spread of the novel coronavirus in a state already seeing an increase in cases. The campaign said it would provide masks and hand sanitizer to attendees. (Reporting by Tim Reid; Editing by Bernadette Baum)
