Biden to kick off Pennsylvania swing after tax day

President Biden will kick off a tour across Pennsylvania with a major address in his hometown of Scranton on Tuesday, the day after tax day.

The tour of Pennsylvania, which is a critical swing state that Biden won in 2020, will also include stops in the Pittsburgh area and Philadelphia. Biden is set to be in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

“Do you think the tax code should work for rich people or for the middle class?” Biden will ask voters during his address on Tuesday in Scranton, according to the campaign.

Biden is set to outline the difference between his tax agenda, which he argues is structured to build the middle class from the bottom up and middle out, to former President Trump’s policies, which he argues only helps the wealthy.

The Biden campaign also plans events in other battleground states next week, where other officials and surrogates will compare the president’s economic agenda with Trump’s.

Biden won Pennsylvania in 2020 with 50 percent of the votes, flipping it after Trump won in 2016. A Franklin & Marshall College poll earlier this week found Biden leading Trump by 10 points in the state, garnering support from 48 percent of voters surveyed, compared to Trump’s 38 percent.
