Biden rally blasts GOP, but real midterm effect will come down the road

However, the official trip announced by the president for the coming weeks includes stops in two states with Senate races that are key to the Democrats’ efforts to maintain a majority. And his cabinet is traveling more in an attempt to highlight the tangible effects of the laws he signed.

Biden is scheduled to travel to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday to make remarks on gun safety, a trip that was originally scheduled last month but was postponed after the president tested positive for COVID-19.

“We just passed the first major gun safety legislation in 30 years in this country. And I promise you we won’t stop here,” Biden said at Thursday’s rally. “I am determined to ban assault weapons in this country. I’ve done it once before, and we’ll do it again. We will do it for those families in Buffalo, Uvalde, Newtown, El Paso, Parkland, Charleston, Las Vegas, Orlando. I have been to almost all of those places to meet with those parents. We all have to. We will do it for all of our children shot to death on our streets every day, every day, who never make the national news.”

Pennsylvania Rep. Matt Cartwright, whose 8th District race is rated as toss per Inside Elections, he will appear with Biden when he travels to the district next week. Cartwright faces a rematch with Republican Jim Bognet, a former Trump administration appointee who lost to Cartwright by 4 points in 2020, even as Trump carried the district by 4 points. After redistricting, Trump would still have won the District 8 seat, but by a narrower 3-point margin.

A spokesman for John Fetterman, the Democratic candidate in the race for an open Senate seat that could decide the House balance of power, did not respond to a request for comment on whether he would also join Biden for the visit.
