Updated on

Top aides to President Joe Biden are working to keep his $579 billion bipartisan infrastructure deal from unraveling, reaching out to senators to convey his enthusiasm for the agreement, a White House official said Friday night after Republican senators began raising objections.

Steve Ricchetti and Louisa Terrell spoke to individual senators, the official said. To put public pressure on wobbly lawmakers, Biden plans to begin traveling the country to promote the agreement, talking up its potential to bolster the economy and job creation, the official added.
