Laura Bush to help Talent raise campaign cash
St. Louis, MO – Missouri's junior U.S. Senator will get some high-powered fundraising help in the next two weeks.
First lady Laura Bush will appear at a Jim Talent fundraiser in St. Louis on Tuesday. She'll also visit a substance abuse center in St. Charles.
Then, on April 10th Vice President Dick Cheney will appear in Springfield.
Talent faces a challenge this year from Democratic State Auditor Claire McCaskill. Both candidates are pushing to boost their coffers in what is expected to be a competitive and expensive race.
