Jill Biden was dispatched to the swing state of Wisconsin Monday to campaign for her husband's re-election as he continues to hide from the public.
The First Lady spent two days in the northeastern corner of the state, according to reports.
She stopped in Green Bay on Monday to promote the Biden administration's Cancer Moonshot program.
“We all know that one of the best ways to fight cancer is to catch it early, and I know you’re so busy taking care of everyone else in your families and in your lives, but I’m asking you to put your health first,” she said.
The second day was devoted to touting President Biden's support for Native American groups like the Menominee Tribe, which received $2 million in racially based subsidies as part of Biden's controversial "equity" agenda.
Jill Biden also appeared at a women's empowerment forum with the tribe and discussed buzzwordy topics like "sustainable development" during her tour.
“That’s why Joe’s made the largest-ever federal investment in Indian Country,” Jill Biden said. “He’s honoring the nation-to-nation relationship – making sure all parts of his administration are consulting with tribes."
Like he did in 2020, President Biden has largely shunned the campaign trail, leaving surrogates like his wife to play a more significant role than ever before.
Wisconsin will likely play a major role in deciding the outcome of the 2024 presidential election. Liberals see signs of hope there after Biden squeaked out a win there in 2020, followed by a pivotal victory this year that flipped control of the state's Supreme Court to the left.
But Biden's advanced age and poor job performance have brought withering scrutiny of his prospects for re-election, even as the Democratic party rallies behind him as their best hope to keep President Trump out of the White House.
It's a risky bet, as some Democrats are increasingly beginning to acknowledge.
Many question whether Biden will be able to keep pace with 77-year-old Trump, who is likely to face Biden again in 2024.
Biden did stop in Milwaukee in August to promote his tone-deaf message on "Bidenomics," which has failed to connect with a population that is struggling to keep pace with the rising cost of living.
