IN THE STATES: GOP on Defense Over Anti-Abortion Agenda

In the states this week, Republicans continued to make headlines for their extreme, anti-abortion agenda. Last night, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed one of the strictest abortion bans in the country, which applies before many women even know they are pregnant. 

From Iowa to New Hampshire to South Carolina, Republican Senator Tim Scott spent his first week in the 2024 race for the MAGA base dogged by questions about his support for banning abortion nationwide. Today in his home state he promised that, if he was president, he would sign the most extreme abortion ban possible.

Meanwhile local news continued to highlight the Biden-Harris administration’s “Investing in America” tour, touting new roads, bridges, jobs and more.

And late last week, Vice President Harris traveled to Nashville to meet with the “Tennessee Three” and discuss gun reform in the wake of the most recent mass shooting in the city.
