Trump, Biden scrap on oil, virus with just over a week to go

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump and his allies are fighting for momentum in the nation’s leading battleground states following a debate performance that gave new hope to anxious Republicans. With Trump on the attack, Democrat Joe Biden is trying to clean up his own debate misstep and urging voters to stay focused on the president’s inability to control the worsening pandemic. The surge of activity with just 11 days remaining in the 2020 contest highlights the divergent strategies, styles and policy prescriptions shaping the election’s closing days. More than 52 million votes have already been cast and another 100 million or so are expected before a winner is declared.
