Bush Campaign Moves Into Another Phase Soon
Republican campaign insiders say President Bush will move to yet another phase of his campaign in the next week. They told U.S.News and the Bulletin that the President will travel through battleground states, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virgiina, talking about what the insiders call "baskets of issues" each basket representing a different topic every few days. The themes will include health care, education and tax cuts. Bush will also ditch his suit and tie in favor of open collared shirts and slacks to give an impression of accessibility and that he is "just folks."
