President to Visit Southeast Missouri Next Week

SEPTEMBER 2, 2004 - Posted at 12:29 p.m. CDT

 

NEW YORK - K8 News has just learned that President Bush will visit Region 8 next week.

While attending the Republican National Convention in New York, southeast Missouri Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson was notified today, by the Bush/Cheney campaign organization in Virginia, that the President has accepted the invitation of southeast Missouri supporters to visit Poplar Bluff, "to attend a campaign event sometime late afternoon on Monday, September 6."

"I am very excited for the community of Poplar Bluff to be able to host our President next week," said Emerson.  "I have already called Mr. Hardy Billington to let him know that his efforts and the help of many volunteers in Poplar Bluff to collect 10,000 signatures on a petition were obviously very successful.  The signatures really got the attention of everyone at the Bush/Cheney campaign and I was extremely pleased to get this call today."

The exact details and location for President Bush's Monday visit are not yet available, but are expected to be released by the Bush/Cheney campaign's St. Louis office later today or tomorrow.
