Biden was sworn in January 20; here are connections between the 2020 presidential election/the new President and OOH:

  • On October 1, 2020, candidate Biden tweeted about his billboard when he ran for US Senate in 1972 in Delaware

  • On October 31, 2020, Biden said on Facebook he was “blown away” by crop art that appeared in rural areas of battleground states, featuring his slogan “build back better.”

  • The Biden for President campaign bought billboards in key places like Georgia.

  • After the November 3 election, the Biden team put up a “Joe ❤️ Scranton” billboard.

  • OOH is a platform for ideas and debate. Supporters of President Trump promoted his candidacy via out of home displays, and criticized candidate Biden, including these political expressions in:
    • Tennessee:


    • Deleware
    • Pennsylvania:
