Fresh Off a Series of Victories, Biden Steps Back Onto the Campaign Trail

WASHINGTON — President Biden is preparing for one of the biggest tests of his presidency: Can he save his party?

Fresh off a series of legislative victories, the president was set to kick off the transition to campaign mode with a speech at a Democratic National Committee rally in Maryland on Thursday evening as he tries to preserve the party’s control of Congress in the midterm elections.

But his approval rating remains stubbornly low — lower, in some cases, than those of the candidates he hopes to help — and inflation remains stubbornly high. At 79, Mr. Biden is the oldest president in American history, which has become an increasingly uncomfortable issue for Democrats.
