US President Joe Biden waves as he departs from Delaware Air National Guard Base in New Castle, Delaware, on August 7, 2023, enroute to Joint Base Andrews.
WASHINGTON — Buoyed by an economy that is doing far better than the White House expected and a political opponent mired in dozens of indictments, President Joe Biden will hit the road Monday for a rare trip to a state that played a critical role in the 2020 election.
"What I'm most excited about is people are starting to feel a sense of optimism as they see the impact of the achievements in their own lives," Biden said when he last visited Arizona in December.
"It's going to accelerate in the months ahead and it's part of a broad story about the economy we're building that works for everyone."
The president is expected to discuss climate provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act, the largest response by the federal government to address rising temperatures and increase clean energy projects.
