President Biden will speak at a Democratic National Committee event in Maryland next week, rallying voters ahead of November’s midterm elections.
It will be Biden’s first political rally in months and will serve as the kickoff to his fall midterm push.
DNC officials offered scant details of Biden’s Aug. 25 visit to the D.C. suburbs, so it was unclear whether the president would address contests nationwide or in Maryland. Democrats at the top of the ticket in Maryland are largely facing Donald Trump-aligned opponents who face an uphill battle in a state where Democrats outnumber Republicans 2 to 1.
The state’s historic Democratic ticket would deliver the most racial and gender diversity ever among those leading Maryland government. Newly redrawn congressional maps also have made one Democratic-held congressional seat more competitive.
