The rallies are designed to help get out the vote as early voting begins next week. Doors open for the Tampa rally at 10:30 a.m. with a pre-program at 11:30 a.m. and the main program at noon. Also on stage with Biden will be Tallahassee Mayor Gillum, who is running for governor; Nelson, who is running for reelection to the U.S. Senate; Rep. Charlie Crist, who is running for reelection to the U.S. House; and Sean Shaw, who is running for Florida attorney general.

“This election is a battle for the soul of America, and Florida has the chance to decide the future of this country. I am honored to stand with Sen. Bill Nelson and Mayor Andrew Gillum as they work to restore our nation’s democracy,” said Vice President Biden. “The stakes couldn’t be higher in 2018. We need Floridian’s voices to be heard at the polls this fall, and that starts with early voting.”
