RGA Statement on Joe Biden’s Visit to Portland

As you cover President Biden’s visit to Portland today, please consider the following statement from the Republican Governors Association:

“Crime and violent protests plague Portland. Yet, even as the city remains on track to experience a record-high homicide rate, Joe Biden touts legislation that does nothing to remedy the lawlessness,” said RGA Spokeswoman Kaitlin Price. “Many small business owners and residents flee rather than risk working and living in Democrat-controlled Portland while Biden carries on with his publicity tour and fails to address the city’s public safety nightmare. Add Biden to the list of Democratic politicians who’ve failed the city and state.
