President Joe Biden hit the campaign trail on Thursday to highlight a series of policy wins as Democrats look to keep their narrow majorities in Congress during this fall’s elections.
“I just want to be crystal clear on what’s on the ballot this year,” he said at a Democratic National Committee rally in front of a friendly Rockville, Maryland, crowd as he underscored what he felt should be on voters’ minds in November: abortion rights, Social Security, climate change and more.
“Your right to choose is on the ballot this year. The Social Security you paid for from the time you had a job is on the ballot,” he said. “The safety of your kids from gun violence is on the ballot. And it’s not hyperbole — the very survival of our planet is on the ballot. Your right to vote is on the ballot.”
