President Joe Biden will be giving a speech focused on democracy and "the continued battle for the soul of the nation" from Independence Hall in Philadelphia tomorrow at 8 p.m.
The prime-time event is the second of Biden's three planned campaigning events in Pennsylvania this week. Biden was in the state yesterday to visit Gov. Tom Wolf in Wilkes-Barre to discuss the Safer Communities Act and deliver a speech. He is also expected to give a speech in Pittsburgh on Friday, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
The campaigning events come a week after the president delivered a speech during a Democratic fundraising event in Maryland in which he claimed "MAGA Republicans" are turning toward "semi-fascism," according to The Washington Post.
“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security,” Biden said during the Aug. 25 speech, according to the Post. “They’re a threat to our very democracy. They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace — embrace — political violence. They don’t believe in democracy.”
As the November elections loom closer, NBC News reported that Biden has portrayed the election as a choice for voters between "ultra-MAGA Republicans" and Democrats.
The races for Senate and the seventh congressional district have been labeled "toss-ups" and gained national attention. Meanwhile, the Democratic candidate for governor Josh Shapiro is polling ahead of Republican candidate Doug Mastriano, according to Politico.
The increase in approval ratings comes after a month of multiple legislative wins, which, according to NPR and Reuters, could provide Democrats with a boost coming into the upcoming midterm elections.
