The First Lady Jill Biden campaigned for Arizona Democratic Senator. Mark Kelly on Saturday afternoon in south Phoenix. Biden and Kelly organized a campaign launch in advance of Election Day on Tuesday, with the goal of increasing Democrat voter participation and informing voters who are undecided to vote for the incumbent.
While many topics were debated, the economy was the important topic.
The First Lady has said that Democrats “have achieved many things. They have saved our nation from chaos caused by the pandemic. They've created millions of jobs and they're working hard to reduce the cost of families.”
“We have to use these last three days to get out the vote,” Biden declared.
Kelly was interviewed prior to Biden, during which Kelly highlighted his accomplishments as a senator.
“I will be fighting for middle class taxpayers and working class people,” Kelly stated. “And unions.”
The senator is locked in a tense race with Republican Candidate Blake Masters. Kelly had a slight lead in polls for months however, Kelly's lead is now diminished.
“We cannot keep the momentum going without Mark Kelly,” Jill Biden declared.
RealClearPolitics reports that Kelly is ahead with a margin of 1 percent, as per their polling data.
Republicans have criticized the decision of the Democrat to run with Biden and National Education Association teachers union President Becky Pringle on Saturday.
“For his closing argument, Mark Kelly decided to remind Arizonans he votes with Joe Biden 94 percent of the time and backs the teachers unions that locked kids out of school over COVID,” Republican National Committee spokesman Ben Petersen said in a statement.
Although the president has been in the campaign for states like Florida, that is likely to keep its Republican trend. The First Lady is also trying to promote her position for Democrats. But, the president has a disapproval rating of 58 percent in Arizona according to Morning Consult.
The White House source reportedly told The New York Times in October that Jill Biden is the most sought-after person to run for office in the Biden administration.
