Residents of neighboring counties have been going to San Mateo to work out at Jim's, or get their hair done. It salons that stayed open since March. However, per state rules, those businesses will be forced to close now that the county is on the watchlist.

A lot of developments in the presidential race to report we're going to cover a lot of them all over the course of the next four hours in the morning. S O. First of all, we're going to roll out our featured audio clip. And then I've got to get Teo Maura what a former White House press secretary, said an op ed piece over the weekend. Very interesting. Get to that in a second. But first here is the featured audio clip. A CBS news poll shows that a growing number of states are either in play for Joe Biden or are tossups. On face the nation CBS news elections and surveys Director Anthony Salvato. Broke down some of the latest numbers out of the CBS News battleground tracker Pole. It is our featured audio clip this hour in our Monday morning wrap of the Sunday morning talk shows. You've gotta look at all the States that are now expanded into our categories of either toss up or in play these air, Not too We might have expected to be on the list earlier this year, but it's that frustration as you said about Corona virus. And you also see in places like Georgia and North Carolina. Ah, larger story, And that is that he's growing metro areas. Whether it's around Atlanta around Charlotte and others where those suburbs have been trending towards the Democrats. The last couple of cycles, something you want to keep an eye on in a lot of states this year. So if you are to believe the polls that is, But ah, the polling has not been good at all for Trump in the last 2 to 3 months. Very dismal s O. That's that's the latest on the polling. Here's the latest from Joe Lockhart. Don't know if you remember this fella. He was the spokesperson for Bill Clinton in the White House. Okay, go. Yeah. So he wrote an op ed piece over the weekend, which was pending son, CNN dot com. It's a direct quote. Whatever you do, And he's saying this to Joe Biden do not debate Trump. Here's why Trump has made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements, according to the Washington Post. It's a fool's errand to enter into a ring with someone who can't follow the rules or the truth. This is Joe Lockhart interesting. So he's telling Biden not to debate Trump because Trump doesn't tell the truth. If you're a good debater. And you're going up against somebody who routinely lies. Which is what Lockhart says Trump does, Right. Doesn't that give you great ammunition to win? You would think so. Yes. Yeah, You would want a very good debater to actually get on the stage with someone who lies repeatedly Be armed with that information and call him out. Maybe Lockhart doesn't want Biden to debate because they want to keep him in the basement. That's another possibility, too. And again. When you talk about this, you talk about the polls. You're not going to sway Trump's supporters. The hard core supporters are one. They're not going to believe the polls and to they're not going to believe anything that Biden said. Well, you know, at first we heard they were going to be three debates. And then I've heard too. I've also heard one. I've also heard none. There's that floating out there right now. That would not surprise me. Not be surprised if there's no debate, and I think quite honestly, that's what despite what we're hearing, That's the feeling I get from the Biden campaign. They don't want to debate know the reason for that. You can argue all you can. Yes, you can connect the dots. They're right. But we all get that. Top national stories.
