President Visits Arkansas Today

November 10, 2003 - Posted at 8:19 a.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR - President Bush hopes to accomplish two things today with his seventh visit to Arkansas as the occupant of the White House...enhance the image of volunteerism, and enlarge his re-election campaign warchest.

Michael Quick, a North Little Rock orthodontist who offers free dental services to the poor, was chosen for recognition by Bush as part of the president's USA Freedom Corps initiative.  Bush has been honoring others around the country who contribute their time and efforts to their communities.

A campaign fundraiser at the Statehouse Convention Center was to be the main focus of today's visit, expected to begin with a late-morning arrival.
