Team Biden-Harris Reaches Millions of Voters Across the Battlegrounds During March Month of Action

Over 100,000 supporters and volunteers sent millions of texts and calls to reach voters as President Biden and Vice President Harris barnstormed the battlegrounds throughout March

On the heels of a decisive Super Tuesday and President Biden’s powerful State of the Union address, the Biden-Harris campaign launched a March “I’m on Board” Month of Action, designed to engage and mobilize voters and volunteers in the fight for the soul of the nation. Throughout the month, the campaign has been scaling up its battleground states operations for the general election, traveling the country, and communicating early and often with the voters who will decide this election. The effort has been powered by a historic, grassroots-powered fundraising operation to strengthen the Biden-Harris coalition and begin the critical work to break through a fragmented media environment to define the stakes of this election as campaign season gears up – all the while Donald Trump remained cooped up in Mar-a-Lago, weighed down by crises and legal fees.

Throughout March, the Biden-Harris campaign  reached millions of voters, opened more than one hundred coordinated offices, hired hundreds of coordinated staff, and trained thousands of volunteers across the battlegrounds, building on strong relationships in communities of color and rural and suburban areas. By the numbers:

  • The Biden-Harris campaign opened more than 100 coordinated offices and scaled up battleground staff.
  • Volunteers sent more than 2 million text messages and made more than 385,000 calls to recruit and engage volunteers.
  • More than 20,000 volunteers reached out to voters to invite them to join the effort and nearly 120,000 supporters tuned into organizing calls.
  • President Biden held events in every battleground state in 19 days.
  • Team Biden-Harris launched a $30 million, six-week paid media campaign, including ad buys targeting Latino, Black, and AAPI voters, after kicking off Students for Biden, Latinos con Biden, and Women for Biden.
  • And the campaign held the most successful political fundraiser in history, raising $26 million in one night – $6 million more than Donald Trump raised in all of February.

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign still has no public presence in the critical battleground states that will decide the election – and the RNC is closing offices across the country and cutting staff. Last week alone, Republicans sold their Arizona headquarters, the RNC’s former minority outreach center in Wisconsin was taken over by an ice cream shop, and they revealed they have zero presence in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and North Carolina.

“Our campaign is making early investments to connect directly with voters on the issues that will define this election and to build the infrastructure we need to win,” said Biden-Harris campaign manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez. “Capitalizing on the incredible energy coming off of President Biden’s State of the Union address, our campaign made smart, strategic investments throughout the month of March, to lay the groundwork to expand our electorate and earn the support of the coalition that sent President Biden to the White House in 2020. The difference between our ground game and Donald Trump’s nonexistent presence in the battleground states couldn’t be more clear – and the failing Trump campaign and the RNC can’t get this time back.”

Here are a few more highlights from across the battlegrounds:

In Wisconsin:

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Biden campaign announces Milwaukee headquarters for Wisconsin election push

[Molly Beck, 3/12/24]

President Joe Biden will base its Wisconsin campaign operation out of Milwaukee ahead of the 2024 election, the first time a Democratic presidential nominee has made the state’s largest city a state campaign headquarters in at least two decades.

Biden campaign officials said Tuesday the move to center efforts in Milwaukee reflects the campaign’s focus on Black and Latino voters and suburban women in the Milwaukee area. The headquarters, the exact location of which was not immediately disclosed, will be one of 44 offices across the state operated by the Biden campaign and state and national Democrats, according to the Biden campaign.

In Pennsylvania:

Pennsylvania Capital-Star: Democrats open coordinated campaign offices across Pennsylvania

[John Cole and Kim Lyons, 3/26/24]

The Pennsylvania Democratic Party coordinated campaign is opening 14 offices across the commonwealth this week, culminating with the opening of the Philadelphia office on March 30.

Democrats will also have offices in traditionally red counties, including York, where former president Donald Trump bested Biden in 2020 61% to 37%, and Lancaster, where Trump won 57% to 41%. Swing county Erie, along with Northampton, Scranton and Monroe are also on the list of Democratic coordinated offices opening this week.

In Arizona:

AZ Republic: President Biden visits a longtime Phoenix Mexican restaurant. Why it was the perfect venue
[Bahar Anooshahr, 3/19/24]

President Joe Biden visited longtime Phoenix Mexican restaurant El Portal on Tuesday, Mar. 19. He was in Arizona for an early evening campaign event and to kick off a new campaign initiative called Latinos con Biden-Harris, which aims to “engage and mobilize Latino voters, communities, and leaders across the country,” his reelection campaign said.

In Nevada:

Nevada Independent: During Nevada swing, Biden lays out housing agenda, draws contrast with Trump

[Gabby Birenbaum, Carly Sauvageau, Eric Neugeboren, 3/19/24]

President Joe Biden made two stops in Nevada on Tuesday to meet with supporters and give a campaign address on high housing prices, signifying the importance of both the Silver State and cost-of-living issues in the upcoming election.

Biden first stopped in Reno to rally his supporters as the campaign turns its focus from the sleepy primary to what will be a grueling general election. Then, he went to Las Vegas to talk about housing — an issue he hopes resonates particularly in Nevada, a critical swing state that has the worst affordable housing shortage in the country by several metrics.

“As more folks move to Nevada for good-paying jobs, we need housing that’s affordable,” Biden said.

In Michigan:

WJRT (ABC – Flint, MI): President Biden speaks with local families during his trip to Saginaw

[Alyssa Erwin, 3/14/24]

With the campaign season heating up, President Biden has made it a priority to have intimate conversations with families and small groups to discuss policy matters most impact their lives a set part of his travels around the country. […]

The Coleman’s are active in the Saginaw community. Coleman III says that it was exhilarating to even think that they were going to talk to the President of the United States. He explained to Biden how golf and especially Pleasant View Golf Course was “the great melting pot” of our society.

In North Carolina:

Axios North Carolina: Biden campaign ramps up NC staff amid multimillion-dollar ad buy

[Zachery Eanes, 3/14/24]

President Biden’s re-election team in North Carolina is growing, as the president gets ready to visit the state for the second time this year and launch a multimillion-dollar ad push here.

Why it matters: North Carolina is once again seen as a key swing state for both Biden and former President Trump in this November’s election, and the two parties will compete heavily and at a high price for its votes.

In New Hampshire:

Concord Monitor: On the trail: NH Dems beef up 2024 efforts

[Paul Steinhauser, 3/22/24]

The state party says it will open satellite campaign offices this weekend in Laconia and Exeter, following next week with openings in Concord and Lebanon. The state party, which is already operating a field office in Manchester, advertises that more offices will be added in the coming weeks and months.

In Georgia:

Atlanta Journal-Constitution: In Atlanta stump speech, Biden promises to restore Roe, preserve democracy

[Michelle Baruchman, 3/9/24]

President Joe Biden told a crowd of supporters in Atlanta Saturday he is “fighting like hell” for women’s access to reproductive care and to preserve democracy, during his first campaign stop in Georgia this year. “It’s not hyperbole to suggest our freedoms are literally on the ballot this November,” he said to a roar of applause. […]

Biden made Georgia the second stop on a multi-state campaign swing to kick off his general election campaign against former President Donald Trump. With Georgia crucial to another victory, he noted that Trump was also in the state today, but campaigning in north Georgia with U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
