‘No one’s going to be left behind’: Second Joe Biden 2024 ad spotlights economic agenda

‘We’re investing in places and people that have been forgotten.’

President Joe Biden just released a new ad for the 2024 cycle, and it’s all about the American economy.

The spot highlights some of the successes and ambitions of Biden’s economic plan.

That includes reviving domestic manufacturing, creating “good jobs” and what his administration described as a “historic,” “once-in-a-generation investment” in the nation’s infrastructure.

“And it’s about damn time we’re doing it,” he says on screen. “We’re building an economy from the bottom up and the middle out where no one’s going to be left behind.”

The ad, titled “Backbone,” is second of two spots the Biden campaign announced it would be releasing in late April and early May through a seven-figure ad buy. It’s the first one this cycle targeting Floridians.

In keeping with the messaging strategy detailed Sunday by Biden’s campaign Co-Chair, U.S. Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware, the latest ad notes the creation of 12 million jobs since he took office, including 850,000 new manufacturing jobs, and a 50-year low in unemployment.

“We’re investing in places and people that have been forgotten. They’ve been invisible,” he said. “But we haven’t forgotten.”

Understandably, there is no mention during the ad’s 60-second runtime about U.S. inflation woes and the failure of three major banks this year that had some economists worried last month about a possible recession.

“Backbone” will run on national cable channels and digital platforms in key battleground states and markets, according to Biden’s campaign, which is adding Florida and North Carolina this week to six states across which its prior ad, “Flag,” aired last week.

The states and markets for the second week include Orlando and Tampa in Florida; Phoenix and Tucson in Arizona; Atlanta; Detroit, Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo, Lansing and Flint-Saginaw in Michigan; Las Vegas and Reno in Nevada; Charlotte and Raleigh in North Carolina; Philadelphia, Pittsburg and Wilkes-Barre-Scranton in Pennsylvania; and Milwaukee, Green Bay and Madison in Wisconsin.

“The media buying strategy reflects a campaign that is optimizing reach —buying across a broader set of markets to go deeper into states and reach more voters,” a Biden campaign press note said. “Coming off one of the best Midterms for a sitting President since FDR, including key wins in six of these states, (Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris) will do it again in 2024 and prevail over the extremist MAGA agenda.”

    Mike, fantastic work. I applaud your efforts considering that I currently generate more than $36,000 each month from just one straightforward online business. Even though these are the most fundamental jobs related hs-05 to internet operations, you can start earning a solid online income with as little as $29,000.

    Good morning America,
    Geezer political leadership has been shot all to H3LL by the failed 8iden Administration. And while America loves Trump unfortunatly 8iden ruined Trump’s dreams of coming back to our position of POTUS.
    Why you ask? Well I, Earl Pitts American kind of dropped a clue in the above paragraph. However in defference to the disabled mentality of our dook 4 brains readership I, Earl Pitts American, will dumb it down to pre-school explanation levels to try to turn that light bulb of understanding in your drug addled everyone gets a trophy brains.
    Very old people are known as Geezers. Both 8iden and Trump meet the age qualification of Geezers. 8iden has failed so miserably that blacks and hispanics have abandoned him. Trump, also being a Geezer will no longer be accepted by conservatives due to his membership in the “Geezer Club” America just wont take another chance on a Geezer for the next 85 years.
    So, dook 4 brains leftists, let me ask you a question. Who is left?
    Well actually just one person Desantis.
    Now I know that hurts you dook 4 brains lefties brains but I, Earl Pitts ” dook 4 brains lefties Volunteer Helper Dude” American, care about you idiots and ask you to gradually get used to the idea of Desantis as POTUS. You will be much happier if you basically lubricate and dialate your brains to accept the big log of an idea into the orafice of your dook brain. Kind of like KY for your brain ya know.
    Thank you America,
    Earl Pitts “Explainer So Lefties Understand” American
