On the heels of the Democrats’ next major legislative push, Democrats are pitted against each other in bitter infighting over where their party stands on infrastructure spending.

Chris Bowers, professor of business at George Mason University’s Mercatus Center, joined Fox News Radio’s Guy Benson and Marie Harf to discuss the battle to get their message out to voters.

On two weeks where Democrats must tell voters their story: Well, the two weeks between now and then will be a very important two weeks because it will set the agenda for the larger three months after February 5th. (3:27)

On those two weeks being more fraught than expected: It’s a microcosm of the Democratic Party. You know, every side you can find has sort of a plan that is somewhat written in stone. You know, there’s a plan that was defeated from a couple of leaders who want infrastructure spending through the stimulus, which is sort of ubiquitous right now but also they want it for teacher pay, which is everywhere else. (4:08)

On Democrats fighting to get across the message in a few short weeks: Well, it’s going to take a lot of work and there’s not going to be a lot of help especially when Republicans have traditionally high job approval ratings and that seems to be the case with them. (5:26)
