Fundraiser-in-chief on western campaign swing
From CNN Deputy Washington Bureau Chief Steve Redisch
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush completes his three-day West Coast campaign swing Wednesday, attending two fundraisers for GOP candidates facing tough races.
Bush appeared with Arizona Rep. Rick Renzi, a two-term incumbent in a competitive race for reelection, at an event that raised $450,000 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The president is also slated to appear with Colorado Rep. Bob Beauprez, who is giving up his House seat in order to run for governor. The event, in Englewood Colorado, is expected to raise $550,000.
