[url=http://www.arizonarepublic.com/news/articles/0928bushvisit28.html]Bush's Arizona visit raises cash, protests[/url] The Arizona Republic Sept. 28, 2002 01:45 AM President Bush helped raise nearly $700,000 for GOP gubernatorial candidate Matt Salmon on Friday, calling him a "breath of fresh air" before telling a crowd of Republicans in Phoenix that America will be relentless in its war against terrorism. In Flagstaff, Bush also stumped for Rick Renzi, 1st Congressional District Republican candidate. At both stops in Arizona, he continued to beat the war drums against Saddam Hussein and Iraq. He said the United States won't "allow the world's worst leaders to threaten us with the world's worst weapons." . . . At the Phoenix Civic Plaza, Bush praised Salmon as a strong family man who keeps his promises. "I know this is the only person I'm campaigning for who rides Harleys, speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese and fronts an Elvis cover band," Bush told an audience of 1,500 people who paid $700 a ticket. . . . Bush's campaign stops in Arizona are part of a nationwide fund-raising tour for Republican candidates. The timing of Bush's visit couldn't be better for Salmon or Renzi, who are both locked in close elections. Early ballots will start being mailed out Thursday. The presidential stops in Arizona could help Salmon raise up to $1 million and pour another $1 million into the coffers of the Arizona Republican Party. The amount raised won't be known until figures are tallied this weekend. Salmon's Democratic opponent, Janet Napolitano, will also benefit from the Bush visit. As a publicly funded candidate, Napolitano will get a dollar-for-dollar match as soon as Salmon raises more than $615,000.

I guess at $700/person I shouldn't have been expecting a personal invitation [BD] Any AZ folks here go to the rally? Any AZ folks here actually hear about Bush coming to AZ from the news media BEFORE he arrived?

Man, I love Flag! Even better reason to go screw off for a weekend at Busters and kick around in some clean air. Wish my friend from Flag called to tell me, I would have gone! -934

... my friend JD invited me but I just got home from a long trip to the eastern seaboard and I chose to stay home. ... I would have LOVED to talk with [b]GWB[/b] even if it was for my allocated 52 seconds.

President GW Bush was also in Denver yesterday. Didn't go down. . . didn't eat the food from the pricy plates. He raised $1,500,000 for the GOP during those 3 hours. (Beauprez will get $600,000.)
