Bush no money magnet

Bolton, Alexander

Hill;6/13/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 70, p1
The article reports on the $7.5 million fund raising campaign of the National Republicans Congregational Committees (NRCC) in the U.S. The amount being raised was only half compared to $14 million raised by the party for the 2006 midterm election. A lesser goal was set due to the weakening support of some Republican allies of President George W. Bush. The president was blamed because of his immovable foreign policies, social issues as well as the emigration bill.
