Dick Cheney did the right thing in cancelling the fundraiser he was scheduled to do this weekend along with Senator Rick Santorum so that he could focus on America’s hurricane challenges.
Fascinating though that just about everyone in the White House is off committed to fundraisers. . .
In any case, this just in via an attentive North Dakota blogger who cites the Times-Tribune:
Fundraiser featuring Cheney postponed
SHAVERTOWN — U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum’s Luzerne County fundraiser with Vice President Dick Cheney has been postponed.
The appearance, set for Friday, was postponed so the vice president could concentrate on helping deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, said John Brabender, spokesman for Mr. Santorum’s re-election campaign. The event will likely take place in mid-October, he said.
The vice president was scheduled to appear at the Shavertown home of Ron and Rhea Simms for the $1,000-a-person fundraiser. Mr. Santorum is the presumptive Republican nominee. The leading Democratic contender is state Treasurer Robert P. Casey Jr. of Scranton.
Gotta give credit where credit is due. . .but not for Rove this round.
