(AP) — From a vaccination site in the desert West to a school on the Eastern Seaboard, President Joe Biden’s top messengers have led off an effort to highlight the benefits of his huge COVID relief plan. Biden’s surrogates — his vice president and wife among them — were on the road Monday, and the president himself will be heading out Tuesday.

The promotion road show began with Harris visiting a COVID-19 vaccination site and a culinary academy in Las Vegas and first lady Jill Biden touring a New Jersey elementary school. Republicans say the plan’s $1.9 trillion price tag is much too high and targeted too much to non-pandemic issues.
