(Bloomberg) -- Donald Trump plans to hold a tele-rally for Republican Glenn Youngkin on Monday night, a day before the Virginia gubernatorial election, according to a person familiar with his plans.

The former president on Wednesday teased the possibility that he would campaign in Virginia before the election, but will do the tele-rally, typically a call with supporters to generate support for the candidate, the person said.

The rally comes as Democrat Terry McAuliffe, the former Virginia governor running against Youngkin, former co-CEO of Carlyle Group Inc., has sought to tether the two Republicans. On Tuesday, President Joe Biden appeared at a McAuliffe campaign rally in Arlington, Virginia, where he repeatedly jabbed his predecessor. 

Biden won Virginia by 10 points last November. Polls show the race in a dead-heat in the final stretch after McAuliffe had previously held a consistent lead.

The Youngkin campaign didn’t immediately respond to a message left for comment.
