2005 Horse Race: President Bush to Campaign With Kilgore on Monday

Hey, great idea, Kilgore. Get the President, with a 35% approval rating, to stump for your candidacy. Your ads aren't already hurting you to make sure you go for the complete suicide.

President Bush to Campaign With Kilgore on Monday

The White House is expected to announce this morning that President Bush will hold a last-minute, election-eve rally for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Jerry W. Kilgore in Richmond, sources in Virginia said.

The Monday night rally, to be held at the Richmond airport, is designed to give Republican Kilgore a final boost in his battle with Democrat Timothy M. Kaine. The pair are locked in an extremely close race. A Washington Post poll last week showed Kaine ahead by 3 percentage points, but a more recent poll shows the race even closer.

The president's poll numbers have been sagging nationally and in Virginia. Last week, Kilgore declined to attend a Bush speech in Norfolk, a move that was widely viewed as a snub.

I'm rooting for Kaine; watching him rise in the polls has made me very hopeful for you all. Best of luck!
