The 2004 election year is underway and we can expect to see and hear a lot of politicking between now and Election Day in November. President George W. Bush has madeit a point to spend a lot of time in Missouri. His uncle, William “Bucky” Bush of St. Louis, heads up the Missouri Bush-Cheney ’04 campaign. He says this state is extremely important because the issues that are important to Americans, in general, resonate in Missouri and that adds to its status as a bellwether state. President Bush is in St. Louis tonight for a fundraiser.
