President Joe Biden Will Visit Illinois Nov. 9 to Tout White House Agenda

Biden was last in Chicago June 28, to deliver a speech on “Bidenomics” at the Old Post Office and for political fundraising.

President Joe Biden hits the Chicago area on Nov. 9 for a swing touting his White House agenda, with a likely fundraising event also on the schedule.

The details of the visit, confirmed by the White House, are still in the works. Members of the Illinois congressional delegation have been notified by the White House the president will be making a visit Nov. 9 to the Chicago area, without adding any other information.

Biden was in Chicago June 28 to kick off his “Bidenomics” package of programs intended to boost the economy. While in Chicago that day, Biden also did major fundraising to benefit the Biden/Harris 2024 bid for a second term.

On Wednesday, Biden will head to a family farm in Northfield, Minnesota, to kick off his “Rural America Event Series,” trips over the next two weeks to rural America to highlight how his Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act are helping rural economies.

After the farm event, Biden will also headline a campaign fundraiser in Minneapolis.

The Minnesota stop also comes after U.S. Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., announced a 2024 presidential run, the first elected Democrat to try to deny Biden the nomination for a second term.
