Has the Biden camp already given up on a couple of battleground states? The Democratic nominee's campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon has just told the press that they may need to find a way to win without Pennsylvania and Florida. 

According to the analysts, Republicans are turning out more than expected in the Sunshine State, and it may be hard for Biden to close the gap.

"I hear we're doing very well in Florida," President Trump told supporters at the RNC annex in Arlington, VA on Tuesday.

It's a similar story in Pennsylvania. Deputy Communications Director Ali Pardo reports that Republican precincts in Pike and Luzerne Counties are seeing higher-than-normal turnout.

So, the Biden camp is learning to let go?

"We come into election day in our battleground states ahead by eight points," she added. "Obviously each state is different...Florida is a coin toss without a doubt."

But O'Malley Dillon did her best to spin the news into a positive, adding that "Trump has such a harder hill to climb today to overcome the advantage we came in with."
