First look: Biden's road-warrior campaign
After yesterday's infrastructure-bill signing, President Biden, Vice President Harris and Cabinet members are beginning a months-long road show to showcase the benefits — beginning with a Biden trip today to a bridge in Woodstock, N.H.
The big picture: In addition to coast-to-coast travel, the plan includes local and national TV, social media, and Spanish-language and African American focused media.
A White House official tells me that Biden today will visit a structurally deficient bridge, and will say the upgrades "are going to save commuters time and money, they're going to create good-paying union jobs, and they're going to boost local economic competitiveness."
- The basic message of all the appearances: The bill is "a game-changer for communities that are desperately in need of investment — for the blue-collar workers who are going to get these jobs building and repairing our country, and for our competitiveness against China and the rest of the world for decades to come."
