WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush will talk about security and the economy during a campaign rally in Rochester, Minn., for U.S. Senate candidate Norm Coleman, gubernatorial candidate Tim Pawlenty and other GOP hopefuls.
White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said Bush will stump Friday for Minnesota Republicans and push his agenda when he speaks at the Rochester Community and Technical College.
The president "will be campaigning on behalf of (former St. Paul) Mayor Coleman and the rest of the Republican ticket," Stanzel said Wednesday as the White House released more details of Bush's trip.
"He'll talk about his positive vision for the country and his plans to protect the homeland, fight the war on terrorism and create economic security."
The president's travel in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 5 election will largely target states that have hotly contested House and Senate races that will determine which party controls the next Congress.
