Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., is urging Joe Biden to spend more time on the campaign trail in the weeks leading up to the election.
Tester made his comments during an interview with Politico on Thursday.
“I think that Joe’s got everything it takes to win this election,” he said. “I think that if President (Donald) Trump has any strong suit it’s that he is a rabid campaigner and he loves to get out and have his rallies — and I think Joe just needs to get out and talk to people tell them his vision for the country and I think he’ll be fine”
Politico noted that Biden has resumed campaign travel in recent weeks. However, his in-person appearances have been before much smaller audiences than the thousand-person rallies the president has hosted.
“The last election, 2016, if we learned anything from Democrats, you don’t show up you don’t win,” he said apparently referencing complaints that Hillary Clinton never campaigned in Wisconsin.
“It’s critically important that Joe gets out and every day has a plan,” Tester said. “And he’s got good people around him, I’m sure that’s the case.”
Tester’s comments came as progressive activists backing Biden in Florida are making a last-minute push to get back in front of voters in the battleground state where Trump’s campaign has been active on the ground since June.
