Speaking at a drive-up rally in Orlando, Obama said his former VP will lead the U.S. out of "these dark times." He accused Trump of turning his own White House into a COVID hotspot and ripped his handling of the pandemic.       Voters in battleground Wisconsin will have to have their ballots in by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
