President Joe Biden is set to give a primetime speech Thursday night on "the continued battle for the soul of the nation" as early voting in the November midterm elections draws nearer.

Biden will deliver his remarks outside Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia, known as the birthplace of American democracy and where Biden launched his 2020 presidential campaign.
The speech comes after Biden introduced aggressive new rhetoric at a Democratic rally in Maryland last week, accusing Republicans of "semi-fascism" and saying he doesn't respect "these MAGA Republicans," referring to the political movement spawned by former President Donald Trump.
That rally kicked off a midterm effort to label Republicans as increasingly extreme, with Democrats arguing abortion rights, the survival of Social Security, climate and democracy itself are on the ballot.
