President Bush has made a lucrative stop for the Hulshof for Governor Campaign.
The president slipped out of Washington yesterday afternoon after signing the $700 billion financial sector rescue package into law to campaign for Republican Kenny Hulshof who is running against Democrat Jay Nixon for governor. Bush attended a private fundraiser in St. Louis County that netted $1.5 million for the Hulshof campaign. Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan attended the fundraiser and made a stop at the party’s joint campaign headquarters in Maryland Heights to encourage volunteers.
Duncan told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that "Missouri is a target state. You’re going to see an RNC presence here until Election Day. We’re doing very well here."
