Updated on

Some Democratic lawmakers are growing impatient with President Joe Biden’s attempts to strike a deal with Republicans on infrastructure and the party’s progressives are increasingly wary that he’ll give away too much.

Biden talked again on Friday with the main GOP negotiator, Senator Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia. A statement from Capito’s office didn’t indicate any progress but said the two would “connect again” on Monday.
