Bush Raises 2 Mill In Tri-State

Bush in Cincinnati

President Bush on Monday made his fifth visit so far this year to Cincinnati, raising more than two million dollars in Indian Hill. The $25,000 a couple fundraiser for the Republican Party was held at the home of investor Bill DeWitt, a friend and former Texas business partner. Cincinnati now ranks number four in the country for Bush donations.

Earlier in the day the President hosted a forum at Talbert House, a social services agency in Corryville. The President outlined his calls for programs to encourage healthy marriages and responsible parenting, along with substance abuse treatment and prisoner rehabilitation. In a written response, Senator John Kerry accused the Bush White House of holding up the reauthorization of welfare reform legislation by its refusal to increase spending on child care programs.
