Bush Begins Raising Money for McCain, Behind Closed Doors

Posted: Updated:
WHITE HOUSE (AP) - The White House says President Bush will
start raising money for John McCain next week, but only those
invited are likely to see him do it.
Fundraisers are planned at private residences in Phoenix, Salt
Lake City and Park City, Utah, and are closed. That means no news
cameras. Bush and McCain are both expected at all three events. The
money raised will go to the national Republican Party as well as
McCain's campaign.
The president's low approval ratings have raised questions about
whether he will help or hurt McCain. The Democratic candidates have
been arguing that a McCain administration would amount to a third
Bush term.
In the latest Associated Press-Ipsos poll last month, 28 percent
of respondents approved of the job Bush is doing. That's his lowest
rating in the survey to date.
