WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden will compete for TV audiences in dueling town halls instead of meeting face-to-face for their second debate as originally planned. The two will take questions in different cities on different networks Thursday night — Trump on NBC from Miami, Biden on ABC from Philadelphia. Trump backed out of plans for the originally scheduled presidential faceoff after debate organizers shifted the format to a virtual event following Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis. The two candidates are taking care of other electoral necessities first: Trump has a midday rally in battleground North Carolina, and Biden is raising campaign cash at a virtual event.
TONIGHT: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will face questions from real voters in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania. Watch the ABC 20/20 Town Hall Event – ‘The Vice President and the People’ tonight at 8e|7c|5p on ABC. https://t.co/lfLa0LtTAS #BidenTownHall pic.twitter.com/xmg9bElROU
