Biden to Visit MI Factory, Push Agenda 11/29 06:15

   The midterm elections may be over, but President Joe Biden is staying on the 
road to push his economic agenda.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- The midterm elections may be over, but President Joe 
Biden is staying on the road to push his economic agenda.

   He's visiting Bay City, Michigan, on Tuesday to highlight a $300 million 
expansion of a semiconductor manufacturing plant. The facility, run by the 
South Korean company SK Siltron, is expected to quadruple its production in the 
coming years.

   A White House official, who insisted on anonymity to discuss details before 
Biden's trip to Michigan, said the Democratic president's remarks would extend 
beyond semiconductor manufacturing, which has been a priority of his 
administration. Biden also plans to emphasize falling gas prices and efforts to 
protect abortion access.

   Biden will appear with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat who just won 
reelection in a closely watched race. Whitmer's double-digit margin of victory 
over Tudor Dixon, a Republican who had denied the 2020 election results, has 
burnished her standing within her party.

   The president returned Sunday from Nantucket, Massachusetts, where he spent 
Thanksgiving with his family. Later this week, he will host French President 
Emmanuel Macron for the first state visit of his administration.
