On Monday, the White House provided additional information regarding Vice President Joe Biden’s upcoming trip to Portland, which will take place on Friday and Saturday.
On Friday, he is going to take part in a volunteer event that is being put on by the Oregon Democrats.
On Saturday, he will go to what the White House is calling reception for Tina Kotek, who is in a close battle for governor’s office with Republican Christine Drazan. The election is being closely watched by the White House.
This will be the president’s second trip to the state of Oregon during the current year. Following his attendance at a fundraiser at the Portland Yacht Club in April, he made a public announcement about the success of his infrastructure bill at the Portland Air National Guard Base, which is located close to the Portland International Airport.
This time around, his visit is taking place just weeks before the midterm elections that will take place in November, and a professor of political science at Pacific University named Jim Moore stated in an interview that the purpose of his visit this time around is crystal clear.
“There are four congressional races here within about 120 miles, three of them in Oregon, and one in Washington that could help determine who controls the House of Representatives in Washington, D.C. and the second thing is, we have a very competitive governor’s race, and he wants to come in and sway voters and raise some money and get it towards Tina Kotek,” he said.
Before making his way to Oregon, President Biden will be making stops in California and attending a reception hosted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. His speeches in California will focus on reducing expenses for Americans and improving the nation’s infrastructure.
Following his departure from Oregon, he is going to spend the remainder of the weekend in Wilmington, Delaware.
