The Biden campaign is intensifying its focus on the upcoming 2022 midterms by launching 2021 Into Action, a campaign drive aimed at focusing resources and attention on the upcoming elections. The campaign unveiled the initiative on January 6, 2021, with a speech by Joe Biden in Pennsylvania marking the anniversary of the insurrection at the US Capitol, which was carried out in attempt to overturn certified election results.
In his speech, Biden outlined the themes of the campaign, emphasizing the importance of standing up for democracy, protecting election integrity, and putting an end to the “abuse of executive power” throughout the Biden administration. Biden also emphasized the importance of fighting back against foreign interference in US elections and ensuring that the 2022 elections remain secure and free from foreign and domestic interference. Biden also said he would continue to fight to make sure the Republican-led push for disenfranchising measures would not succeed in suppressing the votes of millions of women, people of color, and low-income Americans.
The campaign is expected to be a multifaceted effort that will leverage Biden’s charismatic appeal to engage and build on the progressive energy from the 2020 election. Biden campaign officials plan to roll out a host of initiatives to electrify Biden supporters ahead of the 2022 midterms, including digital organizing, voter registration drives, and deep-canvassing campaigns. Biden leadership are also working with progressive and grassroots groups to amplify impactful messages to reach voters who have historically been overlooked or ignored.
The Biden campaign is also utilizing digital streaming platforms like Twitch to create content and host events designed to engage and inform voters. These activities are all part of an effort to ensure Biden’s message of restoring America to its former greatness is heard across the country in the coming months as Congress and state governments prepare for the 2022 midterms.
