IN THE STATES: Americans Unite Behind the Biden-Harris Agenda, Reject MAGA GOP’s Extreme Agenda 

Former U.S. Capitol police officers Harry Dunn and Aquilino Gonell hit the campaign trail this week on behalf of President Biden to remind voters of the threat Trump poses to our democracy and our country. Dunn and Gonell delivered a clear, concise message to voters about the MAGA mob violence they experienced on January 6: Donald Trump incited this assault on our democracy, and Americans can’t afford to have him in office ever again.
