Biden to travel to New Hampshire, Michigan to promote infrastructure package

President Biden will travel to Woodstock, N.H. and Detroit, Mich., next week to promote the bipartisan infrastructure deal he is set to sign into law on Monday.

The president will give remarks from the Woodstock Bridge on Tuesday on how the deal “delivers for the American people by repairing and rebuilding the nation’s roads and bridges while strengthening resilience to climate change, improving equity and safety for all users, and creating good-paying, union jobs that grow the economy,” the White House announced on Thursday.

On Wednesday, he will visit General Motors’ Factory ZERO electric vehicle assembly plant in Michigan and deliver remarks about how the deal includes provisions to accelerate the expansion of electric vehicle charging infrastructure.

The White House did not specify if any members of Congress will join Biden at either stop.

Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan is up for re-election in New Hampshire. Gov. Chris Sununu (R) announced this week that he will run for another term rather than challenge her.

The trips are the second and third stops on Biden’s victory lap tour to tout the passage of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill through Congress.

The president’s first trip was to Baltimore on Wednesday, where he laid out his goals to bring down prices, ensure store shelves are fully stocked and get more Americans back to work. 

The Biden administration is racing to implement parts of the bill quickly amid tough approval ratings for the president and inflation hitting its highest annual rate in 30 years.
