President Biden and Vice President Harris traveled to North Carolina to highlight the anniversary of the Affordable Care Act and criticize Republicans’ health care policies. Biden spoke in Raleigh, a city that his campaign sees as a potential win in November after narrowly losing the state in 2020.

The visit coincided with the 14-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act’s passage, but Biden used the opportunity to criticize former President Trump and Republicans for their attempts to limit abortion rights and reduce health care coverage. He emphasized the importance of not taking progress for granted and highlighted Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and cut entitlement programs.

Biden specifically called out Trump for his comments on ending Roe v. Wade and his suggestion that women who have abortions should face punishment. He emphasized the need to move forward and defend democracy, asserting that health care is a right and highlighting the importance of freedom to choose.

North Carolina is expected to be a key battleground in the upcoming elections, with close races for both the presidency and governorship. A recent poll showed Biden closing the gap with Trump in North Carolina, indicating a competitive race in the state.
