LITTLE ROCK, AR - Vice President Dick Cheney is to be in Little Rock this evening 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 campaign in Arkansas.  Analysts say Arkansas is among the key states in the presidential race.  Both presumed Democratic nominee John Kerry and President Bush have visited the state this month.
