    I attended the Bush rally in Chanhassen, MN today and wanted to report back that it rocked! Easily 10,000, probably closer to 15,000 in a suburban Minneapolis park. President Bush spoke for about 30 minutes and was fired up. Expect to hear "he can run but he cant hide" a whole lot more the next 3 weeks. The crowd loved it. A great fall day and a big step to making Minnesota a red state for the first time since '72.

    WAUSAU - In his eighth trip to the Badger State since spring, President Bush asked thousands of his faithful supporters at Marathon Park on Thursday for Wisconsin's help as Election Day nears. Bush's Boeing 757 airplane landed around 2:40 p.m. at Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee, and with surgical precision, the president greeted local Republicans, including Jim Jacobson of Horizon Development Group and Gerald Whitburn, president and chief executive officer of Church Mutual Insurance Co. in Merrill, before jumping in an armored limousine for the 15-minute drive to Wausau along a deserted Highway 51. Accompanying the president was National Security...

    Excerpt President Bush had just finished a 32-minute speech to the faithful at Veterans Stadium, and Earl Corbin felt it. "I've got tears yet,'' said Corbin .... Corbin was one of an estimated 19,000 ticket-holders who filled the stadium Saturday to hear a red, white and blue-tinged campaign speech from Bush. The president used the template from his Thursday night nomination acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention to outline his domestic policy themes and vow to keep America safe from terrorists.
