First Lady Busy on the Campaign Trail

By  | 

First lady Laura Bush is on the road as the GOP tries to hold on to power in Congress with next week's elections.

Bush stumped for candidates Thursday in Michigan, Illinois, Iowa and California. At several political rallies, Bush said Republicans are committed to the priorities set by the White House, including low taxes, a strong front on national security and a strengthening economy.

She told party faithful that it's important for them to not let up in their work to get out the vote next week.

The frenetic schedule caps a busy week for the first lady, who's hitting campaign stops in ten states in the last full week before Tuesday's elections.
