Biden, Cabinet fan out around nation to sell domestic agenda


President Joe Biden used an aging bridge spanning a corner of iced-over Lake Superior to promote billions of dollars that will flow to communities across the U.S. in coming years to fix roads, bridges and other infrastructure.

That visit Wednesday comes a day after highlighting the spending in his State of the Union address.

The trip is part of a White House effort to have the president on the road more this year as Democrats try to limit their losses in the upcoming midterm elections.

Vice President Kamala Harris traveled to North Carolina, and Cabinet officials fanned out around the country as the administration tries to salvage Biden's agenda even as he deals with the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
