Joe Biden

Washington, D.C. On Thursday, President Joe Biden will travel to South Carolina to argue that economic policies he pushed through Congress against strong Republican resistance are keeping the deep-red state — and other states that supported Donald Trump in 2020 — thriving.

White House officials contended that if Republicans had gotten their way, South Carolina, like many other Republican-controlled states, would have lost out on billions of dollars in investments and thousands of jobs prior to Biden’s visit to a state that he lost by over 12 percentage points in the 2020 election.
