Biden Campaign Wants To Appeal To Florida Voters

( – President Joe Biden’s campaign wants to appeal to voters in Florida, a state that has become a Republican stronghold over the past ten years.

According to The Hill, Julie Chavez Rodriguez, Biden’s campaign manager, stated in a memo that aggressive campaigning in the state is an important part of helping the president secure enough votes to win the 2024 election. She acknowledged that it will be a difficult task, but cited supposed financial weaknesses in Trump’s campaign as a potential advantage. His campaign has already recruited three operatives who will spearhead his efforts. Additionally, Chavez Rodriguez’s team has already spent over $50 million on ads while putting a strong focus on the state’s Latino voters. Trump won the state in 2020 with 51% of the vote.

Chavez Rodriguez, like many Democrats in the 2024 election season, said the campaign will also focus heavily on abortion. Democrats believe the issue gives them an upper hand after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in 2022. They are spreading the message that the Court’s decision was “extreme” and cited an incoming 6-week ban. Chavez Rodriguez’s memo said women who need reproductive care will need to decide whether to risk their lives or travel for access.

Chavez also cited “overt attacks on seniors” and rising costs as reasons Florida could be flipped this season. The memo emphasized the campaign’s dedication taking full advantage of the opportunity.

As Chavez Rodriguez acknowledged, taking over Florida could be a tough task for the Biden campaign. Trump emerged victorious in this state both in 2020 and in 2016, while Governor Ron DeSantis won his reelection by a significant margin back in 2022.

Miami, a largely Hispanic city where Spanish competes with English as the most prevalent language, went red in 2017 with the election of Republican mayor Francis Suarez, who remains in power. He won again in 2021 with a landslide victory of nearly 80% of all votes.
