First Lady visits Sarasota



President Bush and Vice President Cheney have both campaigned for U.S. House candidate Vern Buchanan in Sarasota.

Now the First Lady will do the same.

The Buchanan campaign announced today that Laura Bush will campaign on his behalf during an invitation-only afternoon tea hosted by the candidate’s wife, Sandy Buchanan on Friday.

“The First Lady is a role model for me and for women across the nation,”  Sandy Buchanan said. “She has helped educate children as a teacher and librarian, has been a supportive wife and mother. As First Lady, she has successfully tackled national and international issues. I am honored to host her for this event and Vern and I are humbled by her support of his candidacy.”
