Biden nowhere to be seen on Election Day
The president's party traditionally loses seats in both chambers during their first midterms.
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
As voters head to the polls on Tuesday, President Joe Biden is nowhere to be seen, with his official schedule nearly blank and no known plans for a public appearance or comment on the races.
Republicans are poised to make significant gains in the House of Representatives while the Senate remains a toss-up. Nevertheless the Democratic president appears ill inclined to use his public profile to bolster turnout on the big day.
The White House website shows Biden's public schedule, which includes the 9:30 a.m. receipt of his daily briefing and a 12:00 p.m. "In-Town Pool Call Time."
The president's party traditionally loses seats in both chambers during their first midterms and a Republican Congress could dramatically alter the course of the Biden administration.
