- The Democratic National Committee is launching a billboard campaign Wednesday in six battleground states highlighting how President Biden delivered an infrastructure package that resulted in the rebuilding of roads and bridges and other projects around the country, sources familiar with the effort tell The Messenger.
- The billboard campaign will run along highways in the swing states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada, North Carolina and Georgia, a Democratic official said.
- The effort – which comes on the two-year anniversary of Biden signing the $1.2 trillion bill into law – will also rip former President Donald Trump for failing to get an infrastructure package passed when he was in office, despite repeated attempts by his administration.

Pennsylvania Capital-Star: New billboard in Philadelphia will promote anniversary of Biden administration’s infrastructure law
- The Democratic National Committee is unveiling a new billboard campaign in Philadelphia today to mark the two-year anniversary of President Joe Biden signing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

- The new sign at 1-95 Northbound at Frankford Ave., is one of several in cities in key battleground states, and takes a jab at former President Donald Trump. During the Trump administration, the concept of “infrastructure week” became a running joke, something Trump first promised during his campaign in 2016. Trump’s “infrastructure week” plans were repeatedly canceled or otherwise derailed by the president, to the point that the phrase became “something of a joke and a metaphor for any well-intentioned proposal doomed to go nowhere,” as the New York Times put it.

- While Biden achieved what is widely considered as one of his biggest political wins as president in his first year in office, Trump’s ‘infrastructure week’ that never came plagued all four years of his presidency. Despite multiple promises to sign major infrastructure funding, he instead used the multiple infrastructure weeks to address any one of his many controversies while in office.
