President Joe Biden’s Sept. 27 DNC appearance in Florida has been postponed, the White House announced late Saturday
President Joe Biden postpones his visit to Florida to campaign for Democratic midterm candidates as Tropical Storm Ian rushes toward the Sunshine State.
Biden was scheduled to appear at a Democratic National Committee rally on Sept. 27 in Orlando.
The White House announced Saturday night that the trip was being postponed due to the approaching tropical storm – which could become Florida’s first major hurricane in four years.
The President was expected to call out Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in an appearance alongside his challenger, Democratic House Representative Charlie Crist, on his home turf.
Crist, a former Republican who served as governor from 2007 to 2011, is leaving the House of Representatives this year as he seeks a return to Tallahassee.
Polls show DeSantis is less than two months to halftime by just a single-digit lead over Crist as Florida tests a new card of Congress largely geared toward GOP candidates.
The White House did not say when Biden would reschedule.
It’s not yet clear if the DNC is canceling Tuesday’s entire event or if it will go ahead without the president.
DailyMail.com has reached out to both the White House and DNC for comment.
Biden’s last scheduled trip to Florida was scheduled for July – but was canceled when the president tested positive for COVID-19.
Though he hasn’t campaigned in the Sunshine State, Biden hasn’t been shy about tearing up DeSantis at public events elsewhere, holding him up as a boogeyman to push Democrats to the election.
The popular governor has enjoyed a meteoric rise within the GOP for his vocal criticism of the Biden administration and culture war-influenced education policies, LGBTQ issues and now the border crisis.
