President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ first campaign rally of 2024 sought to build voter enthusiasm and boost turnout on a singular issue: abortion rights, which the campaign sees as the golden ticket to reelection.

Flanked by their respective spouses, Biden and Harris on Tuesday kicked off a full-court press strategy elevating abortion rights, highlighting it as a crucial issue this election cycle.

Biden was introduced by Amanda Zurawski, the lead plaintiff in a Texas case of women denied abortions in emergency medical situations.

Zurawski recounted how she almost died during her pregnancy in 2022.

“The stakes of this election could not be higher for our future and for our lives,” she said. “Over and over again, Donald Trump brags about killing Roe v. Wade. It is unthinkable to me that anyone could cheer on these abortion bans that nearly took my life.”

The choice to double down on abortion access is not surprising, given Democratic wins with messaging on the issue down ballot — Democrats have seen wins on the abortion issue in seven successive state ballot initiatives. The issue has also shaped gubernatorial, attorneys general and congressional campaigns since the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision in June 2022. It’s also essential to support from abortion rights groups who invested millions rallying to get Biden elected.

Biden faces a historically low approval rating at 33 percent, according to an ABC News/Ipsos poll conducted earlier this month.
