(NECN: Jennifer Eagan) - Elizabeth Warren and Senator Scott Brown were out on the campaign trail Friday.

Sen. Brown criticized his Democratic challenger over her stance on how America ought to look to China when it comes to boosting infrastructure.

"There is a lot of work to be done. There are roads and bridges crumbling and people out of work. Why not put that together for our economy and help us build a future?" Warren said at a campaign event in Arlington.

Warren is standing behind her recent campaign ad, which contrasts American spending on things like roads and bridges to China's spending.

"China is making the investments in roads, communications, and power that will give a real competitive advantage to china's businesses.  America's businesses deserve the same," Warren said.

Brown hammered Warren for coming the United States to China.  

"The fact that she is comparing us to China and wants us to do another stimulus bill. The first one didn't work," Sen. Brown said.

Sen. Brown continued what he has dubbed the "Thank You For Building This" tour Friday. He delivered coffee and donuts to a construction crew working at a site in Framingham.

"It's not government that is going to get us out of this. It's not a government-created job that is going to get us back on track," Brown said.
