President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris visited Raleigh on Tuesday to pitch their health care agenda to voters at the John Chavis Memorial Park and Community Center, the Associated Press reports.

  • The two said that Democrats would fight to preserve access to care, while Republicans would work to chip away at it, per AP.

Why it matters: North Carolina is again a key swing state in this November's election.

The big picture: Biden made significant gains against Trump during the past month in six of seven 2024 swing states, according to a Bloomberg/Morning Consult poll out this week, Axios' Alex Thompson writes.

  • The poll shows a central question for voters is whether Trump is better at mobilizing Republicans for him, or Democrats against him.
  • Since October, Trump has reached 50% of the vote just once in one of the seven swing states — North Carolina.
  • Biden's campaign has been ramping up its re-election team here as it prepares an enormous ad push.
