Bush Visits Ky. for McConnell

The White House reports President Bush will visit Kentucky early next month to raise money for Republican Senator Mitch McConnell’s re-election campaign.

The March 2, 2007, event will also benefit the National Republican Senatorial Committee. Democrats seized control of the Senate by the slimmest of margins in November, preventing McConnell from becoming Senate Majority Leader.

McConnell, the Senate Minority Leader, has been an unwavering Bush supporter on the Iraq war and the President’s domestic policies.

So far no Democrats have announced plans to challenge McConnell in the 2008 election.
