Campaign Stumping Continues In Tri-State Monday

Presidential campaign stumping returned to the Tri-State Monday. Vice President Dick Cheney visited Clermont County. The VP flew into Lunken Airport but drove to the Clermont County Airport for what was called a Republican National committee victory rally. Cheney declared today that the Bush administration has added jobs, cut taxes and made America safer. Cheney pointed to the end of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and the capture of Saddam Hussein as signs of progress. His message was well received by the friendly crowd the Secret Service estimated at about 25-hundred. The crowd interrupted Cheney several times with cheers and chants of "Four more years." The mention of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry and running mate John Edwards drew boos and jeers. Among those introduced and honored at the afternoon event were the parents of Army Specialist Matt Maupin.
