President Biden arrived in Los Angeles on Wednesday as part of a West Coast trip with just weeks until nationwide midterm elections that could reshape Congress. Biden’s visit to Southern California follows a stop in Colorado, where he was scheduled to designate the first national monument of his presidency. Camp Hale is an alpine training facility where US soldiers trained for battles in the Italian Alps during WWII.

Biden will attend a campaign event focused on the nation’s infrastructure in Southern California, as well as a House Democrats fundraiser on Thursday. The fundraiser is in Brentwood, according to Deadline, but it was not immediately clear who organized it.

The White House announced that Biden will be in Orange County on Friday to speak about “lower costs for American families.” The discussion’s specifics were not immediately available.

“We’ve been very clear that the president and vice president will go out,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said on Tuesday. “They’re going to talk about the accomplishments of this administration over the last 19 months.”

The visit occurs at a time when California’s early voting for the November 8 election is already underway, every registered voter has received a mail-in ballot, and the Los Angeles City Council is the subject of a firestorm. Tuesday, Biden joined a long list of politicians from the federal, state, and local levels who demanded the resignation of three Los Angeles City Council members following a recording of a conversation about redistricting in which they made racist comments about the colleague’s 2-year- old adopted Black son.
