President Bush Spends Monday Stumping in Governor Races

By  | 

Tomorrow, finally, is Election Day. And as the long, bitterly fought Campaign 'O6 wraps up today, President Bush will be out stumping for Republican candidates for governor.

He'll be rousing the faithful in Texas, Florida and Arkansas. The president's message to Republicans is don't be put off by predictions of big gains by the Democrats. As he's been putting it: don't listen to pundits and prognosticators.

Bush himself has been snubbed by some of the GOP candidates. When he campaigns in Pensacola today, the Republican hoping to succeed the president's brother Jeb as Florida's governor won't be there. An aide says Charlie Crist needs to be elsewhere.

Bush will be returning to his Texas ranch tonight to await the outcome of tomorrow's mid-term vote.
