Bush coming to help GOP candidates

Posted by David Postman at 1:05 PM

President George W. Bush is tentatively scheduled to vist Washington state next month to raise money for Congressman Dave Reichert and Senate candidate Mike McGavick. No details yet, except that the visit is penciled in for June 16. Presidential schedules change often, though, so stay tuned. UPDATE: I was wrong. There will be no McGavick fund raiser during the trip. There will be events for Reichert and the Republican Party.

UPDATE UPDATE: McGavick just told me he would have had a fund raiser with President Bush on the 16th but he will be attending his son's graduation. Jack, McGavick's eldest son from his first marriage, graduates from high school out of state. "I'm happy for Dave. I'm happy the president is coming and I'm very sorry to miss it. But I have to be with my son. That's where I belong." He says he hopes Bush will come back before the election. "I would have been honored to have his support."
