President Biden comes to South Florida
President Joe Biden will be in Miami Tuesday and is expected to attend a fundraiser hosted by Chris Korge, the national finance chair of the Biden Victory Fund, according to Politico.
- Biden is also expected to make a campaign stop in Palm Beach.
Why it matters: The president's trip comes a little more than one week after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis dropped out of the presidential race and endorsed former President Donald Trump.
- Despite the state's recent rightward political shift, Biden's visit could indicate he plans to focus more attention on the voters here, according to Politico.
Of note: While Nikki Haley and Trump are still competing for the Republican nomination, it's highly likely the nominee will be the former president, setting up a rematch most Americans would rather do without.
- Biden lost Florida to Trump in 2020 by more than three percentage points, and in 2022, Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Charlie Crist lost to DeSantis by a nearly 20% margin.
