(FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA) — Some high-profile Democrats running in the midterm elections are each taking a different approach to an upcoming visit by President Biden to Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday.
Congresswoman Val Demings, who’s running for senate in a razor-close race against incumbent Marco Rubio, says she won’t attend Tuesday’s rally due to a scheduling conflict, but Charlie Crist will.
Crist, who’s running for governor, again, says he’s proud to welcome Biden and thinks he is “leading so well.”

And it’s highly unlikely that democrat Dave Kerner will stand beside Biden.
the Palm Beach County Commissioner and Palm Beach County’s mayor for two terms, announced he is backing DeSantis’ re-election bid.
“I’m very proud that you felt that my endorsement was worthy of acceptance,” Kerner said during a Palm Beach County Police Benvolent Association meeting. “This was not a difficult choice for me. This was not the proverbial ‘lesser of two evils.'”

Biden is expected to deliver remarks on his plan to lower health care costs and protect and strengthen Medicare and Social Security, according to the White House.
Although Biden’s trip is scheduled for Tuesday, the White House didn’t specify when or where the president will speak.
This is Biden’s first trip to South Florida since July 2021, when he toured the site of the Surfside condo collapse.
Then Biden will head to Orlando to attend a Democratic National Committee rally.
Of course, the president’s plans could be scuttled if potential hurricane Hermine hits southwest Florida on Tuesday.
