WASHINGTON — At the start of his speech Tuesday night, President Joe Biden is expected to declare that the state of the union is strong. By the end of the night, he’s expected to made his case for some well deserved credit.
What We Know:
- Biden will use the speech to reach a wider audience that may have only a passing interest in politics and policy, and assure its members that he’s enacted plans that will make their daily commutes shorter and their prescription drug bills lower, a person close to the White House said.
- Once the speech is over, Biden and his Cabinet will crisscross the country to amplify the message. The following day, Biden will visit Madison, Wisconsin, to discuss his job creation plans, while Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Atlanta to talk about clean energy. All told, Biden, Harris and the Cabinet will visit 20 states in a post-speech blitz that seeks to capitalize on the megaphone a sitting president commands.
