A major report came out on Sunday evening alleging that President Trump has only paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and again in 2017—a claim he vehemently denies.
The Biden team could very easily be busy—the day after the report dropped—scouring mainstream media news outlets and holding interviews over its merits.
But, on a day he could very easily be looking to capitalize on the report, he has called a media lid for in-person events at 9:51 a.m.
That is, he’s done for the day and is letting the mainstream media do his campaigning for him.
Check it out, via Twitchy:

I see the pattern now.
Media releases some "bombshell" in coordination with the campaign.
Campaign calls lid in the morning after the "bombshell" so media can do all the campaign work around the "bombshell" and Joe can spend the day eating Jello and drooling. https://t.co/mBEsFoulR9

Biden will be in OH & PA Wed.
Not counting Tuesday's debate in OH, since the end of the conventions through Wed., Biden travel days in battlegrounds:
PA is a likely tipping point state
