President Joe Biden will visit Wisconsin next week for his first official trip as president, participating in a TV town hall from Milwaukee.

Biden will take questions at a socially-distanced, invitation-only event hosted by CNN next Tuesday night, according to the network.

The “CNN Presidential Town Hall with Joe Biden” will air live from the Pabst Theater on February 16 at 8 p.m. eastern time.

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper will moderate the town hall.

Biden made Wisconsin a focus for his campaign in 2020, visiting the state three times, including in late October, when he visited Milwaukee just days before the election.

He ultimately flipped the state back from red to blue, beating former President Donald Trump by about 20,000 votes there.

The president is expected to field questions on a number of issues as his administration, lawmakers and business leaders debate how to defeat the coronavirus, while trying to bring a sense of normalcy back to people’s lives.

The town hall will air on CNN, CNN en Español, CNN International; stream live on CNN.com’s homepage and across mobile devices via CNN’s apps for iOS and Android and simulcast on SiriusXM Channels 116, 454 and 795.

The town hall can also be viewed on CNNgo (at CNN.com/go on your desktop, smartphone and iPad, and via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, Chromecast, Roku and Samsung Smart TV).

The special will also be available on demand to subscribers via cable/satellite systems, CNNgo platforms and CNN mobile apps
