President Bush Visits Kentucky

Louisville – President Bush is expected to make another visit to Kentucky. An administration official says the President will campaign Friday for Republican US Representataive Anne Northup.

Northup is trying to fend off a hard charging Democratic opponent. Democrats say a Louisville stop by Bush would indicate that Northup's Democratic challenger, Jack Conway, is gaining on her. Northup campaign chairman, Ted Jackson says a return visit by the President should not be seen as a sign of concern about Conway's campaign.

Bush headlined a one-thousand-dollar-per-plate fund raiser for Northup in September. He raised more than 450 thousand dollars for Northup's campaign.
