( – On Monday, the reelection team for President Biden disclosed their strategy to target Florida, aiming to challenge former President Trump’s stronghold in the state.

Julie Chavez Rodriguez, the campaign manager, highlighted in a memorandum that focusing on Florida is a strategic move within Biden’s plan to secure the necessary 270 electoral college votes. Despite Trump’s victory in Florida in 2020, capturing over 51% of the vote compared to Biden’s 48%, Rodriguez asserts that the state remains within Biden’s reach, citing Trump’s financial constraints and weaknesses within his support base as opportunities for Biden.

Rodriguez pointed out that the Biden campaign has appointed three specialists to spearhead efforts in Florida, emphasizing the significance of the state in their advertising campaigns in both fall and spring, with investments of $25 million and $30 million respectively. She stressed the importance of engaging with the Latino community, given Florida’s substantial Cuban, Venezuelan, and Puerto Rican demographics.

Rodriguez portrayed Florida as a battleground where Biden can highlight his achievements against what she described as the detrimental policies of Trump and Rick Scott. She emphasized the growing and dynamic Democratic base in the state.

The memo also touched on the topic of abortion, referencing a decision by the Florida Supreme Court that activates a six-week abortion ban starting May 1. The Biden campaign views the abortion issue as advantageous, reflecting on the positive outcomes in the midterms following the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

Rodriguez criticized the new abortion restrictions in Florida, which she believes were facilitated by Trump’s policies, predicting significant implications for reproductive rights across the Southeastern United States.

Describing Florida as the epicenter of Trump’s political strategy, Rodriguez condemned the state’s book bans and relatively lax gun laws. She also highlighted issues like the escalating cost of housing and limited access to health insurance, citing Florida’s ranking by The Commonwealth Fund.

Beyond Florida, the Biden campaign is also aiming to capture North Carolina, where Trump narrowly prevailed in 2020. Biden’s recent visit to North Carolina is part of his broader initiative to engage with pivotal battleground states ahead of the upcoming election.
