Indication #63 That It's a Rough Election for Republicans: President Bush Visits My Hometown

President Bush is holding a rally in my hometown on Saturday Sunday, 72 48 hours before the election.

"So what?" you say, "President Bush visits a lot of hometowns."

Well, my hometown is Grand Island, Nebraska, the largest town/city (45,000) in Nebraska's 3rd Congressional District. Since 1961, the 3rd District has been represented in the House of Representatives by a Republican. However, a recent poll (apply salt liberally) had Democrat Scott Kleeb leading Republican candidate Adrian Smith by 6 points.

Thus, Bush is forced to visit and glad hand in a district where he carried 75 percent of the vote last presidential election.

Wanna counterbalance the POTUS's last-minute stop in Grand Island, Nebraska? Give some money to Scott Kleeb.
