At an event in Menlow, 45 miles west of Des Moines, the White House says the president will discuss his administration’s actions to “reduce spending on working families, reduce the impact of Putin’s rising prices and create a better America with both parties.” Infrastructure legal investments in rural communities. “

The stop in Menlo also marks the administration’s rural infrastructure journey. While in Iowa, the president is expected to announce an emergency rebate that will lift the ban on summer sales of the E15, which will help ease rising gasoline prices, which include 15% ethanol.

Although this is an official trip to emphasize policy, Democratic strategists say campaign politics in both the 2022 by-election and the 2024 White House race will be considered in the president’s itinerary.

But the strategist pointed to next year’s by-elections as the main political motive for moving to Iowa, rather than the 2024 White House race.

Menlo is in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District, twice represented by Democrat Cindy Axney, who won the 2018 election and the 2020 re-election by a narrow margin. The House Republicans, who need just five seats to win a majority back in the 435-member chamber, are targeting Axney when he contests re-election this year.

Thanks to Iowa’s long-standing lead in the presidential nomination calendar, the president’s stop in Des Moines will create further speculation as to whether 79-year-old Biden will run for re-election in 2024.

The former vice president made history in November 2020, when he became the oldest person to be elected president. If he campaigns and wins re-election in 2024, Biden will be 82 at his second inauguration and 86 at the end of his second term.

When asked about his 2024 plans at his president’s first formal press conference a year ago, Biden said, “My answer is yes. I plan to run for re-election. That is my expectation.”

He also said in an interview with ABC News in December, “If I’m healthy now, if I’m in good health, in fact, I’ll run again.”

Former President Donald Trump, at the 2017 inauguration ceremony, made history as the oldest American to hold office as president at the age of 70. That record was broken by Pita four years later.

The president’s visit to Iowa could push Iowa out of the lead-off for half a century, as the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is seriously considering revising its 2024 presidential nomination calendar. Biden may face questions about the Democratic Caucasus and the main table.

Will the Democratic National Committee change the primary calendar for 2024?

Iowa’s lead-off status came under review at the DNC’s winter meetings last month because many of the members who spoke were clearly open to reorganizing the presidential nomination calendar to better reflect the party’s growing diversity and values.

Iowa currently follows New Hampshire – then Nevada and South Carolina tables.

The impact on Iowa and New Hampshire over the years among many Democrats is that the states are very white, have no major urban areas, and are not representatives of the increasingly diverse Democrats of the past several decades. Nevada and South Carolina are very different than Iowa or New Hampshire.

To complicate matters, Nevada Democrats passed a bill last year that would primarily replace the state’s president’s Caucasus and move the race to the forefront of the race for the White House over Iowa and New Hampshire. Further consolidating Iowa’s problems was the false statement of the 2020 Caucasus, which became a national and international story, and embarrassing to Iowa Democrats and the DNC.
