President Joe Biden will attend a Democratic National Committee event on Friday to draw a clear contrast with Republicans ahead of the election, according to a DNC official.

The Washington event will focus on Biden’s economic agenda and legislative victories, while also serving as another platform for Biden to highlight areas that Democrats see as central political strength less than 50 days after the election: Abortion rights and fulfilling the GOP’s Medicare and Social Security proposals.

Biden has stepped up his political activism in recent weeks, as Democrats overrode Roe vs. In light of the decision to attack Wade, to take advantage of the momentum coming from the legislative victory and the repercussions. He participated in several party fundraisers this week while in New York for the United Nations General Assembly and is scheduled to attend a DNC rally in Florida on Tuesday.

The president’s heightened focus on abortion — who has long been concerned with speaking publicly about abortion rights — came as Democrats seized on a proposal by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, that would ban most abortions. in cases of 15 weeks of pregnancy.

Biden has sharpened his political message in recent weeks as his schedule has increased, particularly on the issue of abortion rights, and the White House continues to focus on the GOP agenda proposed by Republican Sen. Rick Scott of Florida.

Scott’s proposal calls for the federal law to expire every five years unless Congress reauthorizes it. That has led critics to say it would include popular programs like Medicare and Social Security, strong political issues in past elections.

Scott, for his part, has expressed his pleasure in the fight over his proposal, since he presented it in his personal capacity and not as the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

“@JoeBiden said he wanted me to have enough copies of my Rescue America plan, so today I went to the White House to make sure he did,” Scott wrote. in a tweet which depicted him standing in front of the White House. “Thanks for spreading the word, Joe!”

Biden’s account, a few hours later, he tweeted thanks Scotti – and his connection to the proposal.
