President Biden makes appearances on the virtual campaign trail with vulnerable House Democrats

In an attempt to support some of the most vulnerable Democratic candidates in the House, President Joe Biden will appear three times at campaign events Wednesday. This is less than two weeks before the 2022 midterm elections.

Biden will make his first appearance Wednesday at 7:30 pm. He will be participating in a virtual event hosted by Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Penn).

Jim Bognet, Cartwright’s Republican opponent in Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District is up against him. Bognet was the GOP candidate he lost to in 2020.

Biden will be joining a virtual reception for Rep. Cindy Axne (D-Iowa) thirty minutes after her appearance with the Pennsylvania Democrat. Axne is currently running against Republican Zach Nunn in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District. Recently, Axne received backlash after claiming that COVID-19 was the reason she missed an important House vote in August on the Inflation Reduction Act. She was actually on a planned vacation to France.

Biden’s busy evening will be concluded by the president joining Nevada Democrats at 8:30 p.m. for a virtual reception.

Mike Berg, a spokesperson for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) stated that Joe Biden was helping Matt Cartwright to raise money as they vote for what he wanted in response to Biden’s campaign agenda.

Biden added the new appointments to his campaign schedule after a reporter pressed him on his seemingly empty itinerary. Rumors swirling that Democratic candidates don’t want Biden to join them on the campaign trail because of his low approval rating, and fear that it could negatively affect their races this fall.

“John Fetterman will appear with you today, but there haven’t been that many candidates running with you,” said Fetterman. Why?” Biden was on his way to Marine One on Thursday when a reporter asked him why.

Biden assured the reporter that all 435 House and 34 Senate seats are up for grabs in this fall’s election. However, he confidently stated to him that 15 Democratic candidates had asked to run with him.

“That is not true. There have been fifteen! Count, kid, count! The president replied, “Alright?”

The New York Times recently questioned Biden’s participation in the campaign trail. This is even though there are high stakes for Democrats in this year’s midterm elections.

The outlet reported that Mr. Biden had not held a rally since before Labor Day. This is even though his political career and the future of his agenda are at stake in midterm elections. His low profile on the campaign trail is a reflection of his low approval rating.”
