    A little rain didn’t stop Joe Biden on Thursday night in Tampa, Florida. But a lot of rain did. The Democratic presidential nominee was forced to wrap his speech up early at a drive-in rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds after a brief shower turned into a torrential downpour. Biden picked up his binder and dashed off the stage as the rain came down, scattering the crowd of people who had gathered near the stage to hear him speak. The campaign said 285 cars were there. Biden focused his remarks on President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus and his efforts to undermine the Affordable Care Act. “I’m not going to shut down the economy,” Biden said. “I’m not going to shut down the country. I’m going to shut down the virus.” Biden also hit Trump hard on the issue of climate change. “He doesn’t have any real answers,” Biden said. “We can unleash American ingenuity in manufacturing and build a stronger, more climate resistant nation, creating millions of new high paying jobs.” “We can change the path we’re on. We’ve got to act now. Time is running out,” he said.
