Not taking NC for granted: Biden campaign opening 10 new field offices across the state

We are less than seven months away from Election Day 2024 and President Joe Biden’s campaign is ramping up efforts to turn out voters in North Carolina following their announcement of 10 new field offices opening in the Tar Heel State, according to Axios.

Biden and his campaign team recognize the importance of winning North Carolina and they view the state as one of its key battleground investments. The president has already visited our state multiple times in 2024 and Vice President Kamala Harris has also made repeated visits here.

“North Carolina is a key battleground in 2024 and we are organizing earlier than ever before to flip our state and deliver a win for Biden-Harris and Tar Heel Democrats this year,” David Berrios, Biden’s North Carolina campaign manager, said in a statement sent to the media.

The Biden campaign, which is headquartered in Raleigh, will open field offices in Forsyth, Mecklenburg, Guilford, Cumberland, Johnston, Orange, New Hanover, Buncombe, Cabarrus and Alamance counties.

Axios reported that the locations for the new offices are strategically located, with some offices focused on turning out more voters in large cities like Charlotte and Greensboro, while other offices will focus on unaffiliated and disaffected Republican voters in suburban counties outside Charlotte and the Triangle.

Biden lost North Carolina in 2020 by 1.3% (74,483 votes) and a Quinnipiac Poll of registered North Carolina voters conducted within the last week shows him two points behind Donald Trump and within the margin of error of +/- 2.6 percentage points. The Biden campaign knows the importance of the Tar Heel State to winning reelection and they are investing serious time and money into winning here.

Biden currently has a significant advantage over Trump in North Carolina and other swing states because the Republican National Committee is now scrambling to staff their campaign teams in swing states after Trump took control, installed ex-NCGOP chair Michael Whatley, and then fired more than 60 staffers who were working on GOTV efforts in swing states, according to Axios.
