On the day of the midterm elections, President Joe Biden came to this state to mobilize support for Democratic candidates. He warned voters about the risks of electing Republicans to office.
Vote for candidates who promise to keep the last two years’ worth of improvement going, and please go out and vote! Bowie State University is an HBCU with a sizeable African-American student body, and Vice President Joe Biden spoke to an audience of around 1,500 in the Leonidas James PE Complex.
Biden told the primarily Black crowd that he could accomplish so much—including nominating the first Black woman to the Supreme Court, reducing the unemployment rate among African Americans, and increasing federal funding for historically Black colleges and universities—because African Americans voted for him.
Recreational cannabis legalization has received a loud applause
The Republican Party, he said, would try to undo the historic climate change legislation he championed, and Congress passed if they gained power in the House. The topic of recreational cannabis legalization, which is on the ballot in Maryland on November 8, received the loudest applause and cheers from the audience when Biden was speaking.
“We need to stop arresting people for possession of marijuana,” Biden told the appreciative gathering. Vice President Joe Biden, First Lady Jill Biden, Barack Obama, and Bill Clinton have been traveling the country nonstop this past week to rally Democratic voters and, maybe, influence some Independents in the close Senate gubernatorial elections in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and New York.
Clinton spent Monday campaigning for Democratic candidates in South Texas. Among those she visited were Beto O’Rourke, who is running for governor, and Rep. Henry Cuellar, defending his seat against Cassy Garcia, a former Texas Sen. Ted Cruz staffer.
Wes Moore, the Democratic candidate for governor, promised an inclusive administration that would “leave no one behind” as First Lady Jill Biden looked on. Capital News Service photo by Timothy Dashiell/a, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
There was a second Biden in Bowie, and that would be Jill. In contrast to Biden’s busy schedule in Maryland, former president Donald Trump was set to spend Monday night in Ohio, where best-selling novelist and Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance is locked in a close race with Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan.
Trump has also been making the rounds, stopping in cities like Miami earlier this week, where he urged Republicans to vote for candidates he endorses. Many of these individuals agree with Trump’s false claim that voter fraud was widespread during the 2020 presidential election, which he ultimately lost.
Biden is campaigning for three Democratic candidates
“These election fraud deniers are attempting to suppress your vote,” you may hear someone say. Biden stated. Either they win the election, or we cheat so it could go either way for them. With this effort, Biden is campaigning for three Democratic candidates: Wes Moore for governor, Rep. Anthony Brown for attorney general (D-Prince George’s), and Del. Brooke Lierman for comptroller (D-Baltimore).
Before traveling to Maryland, Biden spent the weekend campaigning for Democratic candidates in New York and Pennsylvania, blasting President Trump, the “Make America Great Again” candidates, and those who believe the 2020 election was stolen.
Dan Cox, who Trump supports, is running against Moore. Attorney and a one-term member of the Maryland House of Delegates, Cox backs Trump’s false claim that the 2020 election was stolen and paid for two buses to take supporters to Trump’s disastrous rally on January 6, 2020, which turned into a riot. A month ago, Trump hosted a fundraiser for Cox at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.
