Biden campaign looks for ways to use Obama to pummel Trump

Obama, who has spent time recently at his Martha’s Vineyard home, is not expected to travel for Biden in the coming weeks, sources around the former president say.

The sources say both the Obama and Biden teams are monitoring the pandemic on a daily basis to determine what if any travel they might do in the closing eight weeks of the presidential campaign.

The former president will participate in a drumbeat of outreach aimed at various parts of the Obama coalition, which helped catapult him to the White House.

Instead of the classic Obama big-ticket rallies, he will be delivering frequent messages to targeted audiences, as he has been doing in recent months, according to Democratic officials familiar with the strategy.
