Bush fundraiser to benefit Ark. GOP

Posted By on Mon, Sep 25, 2006 at 10:56 AM

Today's edition of the NBC News blog "First Read" reports:

The White House billed this week as Bush's first round of heavy-duty campaigning, even advancing it with an unusual press release touting the uptick in his job approval rating.  But most of Bush's events this week are closed to the media, starting with his appearances today on behalf of Connecticut Republicans and Ohio Sen. Mike DeWine.  His events for Iowa, Arkansas, and Wisconsin Republicans on Tuesday; for Tennessee Senate nominee Bob Corker on Wednesday; and for Rep. Deborah Pryce in Ohio on Thursday are all closed.  All of these events are at private homes, and under recent presidents, closing events at private homes has been SOP.  But why so many events at private homes for the Campaigner-in-Chief?  By comparison, the more popular Laura Bush campaigns openly this week for Republicans in top races in Ohio, New York, Iowa, Michigan.

A check with our sources revealed that Bush tomorrow will headline an event in Washington, D.C. to raise money for state Republican parties, including Arkansas's.
