LITTLE ROCK, AR - Vice President Dick Cheney is due in Little Rock on Monday to deliver a speech at a Republican party event.
Cheney is scheduled to speak at a reception for the 2004 State Victory Committee, which raises funds for party candidates in state and federal elections.
The visit is part of the Bush administration's re-election blitz in Arkansas, considered a battleground state in the November election.
President Bush visited Little Rock on January 26, El Dorado on April 6 and Fort Smith on May 11. He traveled to Arkansas eight times during the 2000 race.
Cheney spoke in Bentonville on May 3 and his wife, Lynn Cheney, appeared in Springdale the same day Bush was in Fort Smith.
