Biden on road to sell stimulus; DNC billboards hit Scott, Rubio

The Democratic National Committee on Monday unveiled billboards in Miami and Tampa to highlight the Biden administration’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan’s benefits — and remind voters that Florida’s two U.S. senators, Republicans Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, opposed the measure.

“Voters in Tampa won’t be able to miss this message: help is here, and it’s because of President Biden, not Senators Rubio or Scott who opposed this bill and the relief it provides Floridians,” said DNC Chair Jaime Harrison in a statement.

The effort is part of a broad effort by the White House and Democrats to build more support for the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan President Biden signed into law last week. Biden on Tuesday will kick off a nationwide campaign with a stop in Pennsylvania.
