60 Minutes airs Trump, Biden interviews

Ballotpedia's Daily Presidential News Briefing
October 26, 2020: CBS aired interviews with Donald Trump and Joe Biden on 60 Minutes on Sunday. Trump is holding three rallies in Pennsylvania on Monday.

Earlier this month, a generous donor offered to match our donations if we could raise $50,000. The support from readers like you has been amazing and we have already unlocked that match! All of the donations you have made to support Ballotpedia’s work have been doubled!

Better yet, the donor has increased the match to $100,000! 
All donations up to $100,000 will now be matched, resulting in $200,000 of support for election coverage, analysis, and emails like The Daily Presidential News Briefing.
Thank you so much for your support of Ballotpedia and for making our fundraiser such an enormous success already. If you haven’t given yet, there’s still time left for your donation to have double the impact!

Notable Quote of the Day

“For Mr. Biden, an all-in strategy could carry risks.

Mrs. Clinton was criticized for not visiting Wisconsin in the general election, even as she campaigned during the final days of the race in Arizona, which Mr. Trump ended up winning. Some of her former aides later acknowledged they put too many resources in states that wound up not being competitive.

Mr. Trump’s team during the current campaign has frequently pointed to polling in 2016 that showed Mrs. Clinton leading in the final weeks and has noted that Mr. Trump was significantly outspent.”
