Cheney to help Talent raise money Monday
St. Louis, MO – Vice President Dick Cheney will help U.S. Senator Jim Talent raise campaign money tonight (Monday) in Springfield, Mo.
That comes just days after First Lady Laura Bush attended a fundraising luncheon for Talent in St. Louis.
Talent is running for re-election. He'll likely be the GOP nominee and will probably face Democratic state Auditor Claire McCaskill in the fall. Both face much lesser-known opponents in the August primary.
President Bush also will visit Jefferson City Tuesday to discuss the Medicare prescription drug benefit.
