Biden and fellow Democrats pushed bills through Congress that put about $1.5 trillion toward new bridge, road, climate and manufacturing projects. "As President Biden gets out there on the campaign trail, I think you'll see that trend start to change," she said. Arizona has emerged as key battleground state that the Biden campaign will target with money and resources. Biden won the state by less than 1 percentage point in 2020, four years after Trump took the state by 3.5 percentage points. Biden is also expected to hold campaign fundraising events during his Western trip.
