Post-DNC Strategy for Bush and Kerry: Blanket the Region

By  | 

If you've doubted whether West Virginia and Ohio are really "battleground states" in this year's presidential election, check out the post-democratic election plans for President Bush and Sen. John Kerry.

President Bush plans to visit Cambridge, Ohio Saturday morning, while Kerry, who by that time should be the democratic nominee, is to be in Zanesville Saturday night.

The two eastern Ohio cities are 25 miles apart, and are within an hour and a half drive from Parkersburg.

Kerry and running mate John Edwards, joined by their wives, will also be in wheeling, West Virginia the same day.

Tickets are now available at the Ohio County Democratic Executive Committee headquarters at the Ramada Plaza City Center Hotel in Wheeling. Tickets also will be available in the Morgantown area and Charleston. Tickets can be obtained in Charleston at the Kerry-Edwards headquarters. Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, and those who obtain them will have to provide personal information for a security check.

Tickets for the Bush visit to Cambridge are available at the Washington County Republican Headquarters beginning Wednesday night and continuing through Friday.
