Biden Makes Closing Arguments in Georgia, Invoking Roosevelt

(Bloomberg) -- Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden evoked the legacy of Franklin D. Roosevelt in a speech near the former president’s Georgia retreat on Tuesday, promising to heal the nation from a set of cascading crises in his closing argument just a week before Election Day.

Speaking from Warm Springs, Biden used Roosevelt’s efforts to heal his polio from the therapeutic springs as a metaphor for the work that lies ahead.

“This place, Warm Springs, is a reminder that though broken, each of us can be healed,” Biden said. “That as a people and a country, we can overcome this devastating virus. That we can heal a suffering world. And yes, we can restore our soul and save our country.”

The trip to Georgia, which a Democratic presidential candidate has not carried since 1992, also signified the state’s changing political dynamics. Georgia is fully in play this year, and Biden is hoping to flip the state from President Donald Trump. According to FiveThirtyEight’s average of state polls, Biden narrowly leads Trump 48% to 46.8%.
