Laura Bush back on the campaign trail
From CNN Ticker Producer Alex Mooney

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- With less than one month before the midterm elections, first lady Laura Bush barnstorms across the country this week as she continues to help raise money for GOP candidates. Bush will attend four fundraisers in as many states midweek.

The first lady first heads to Cincinnati, Ohio, Wednesday to attend a fundraising lunch for GOP Rep. Steve Chabot. She then heads south to Tennessee to deliver remarks at a fundraiser for GOP senate candidate Bob Corker, who is locked in a tight battle with Democratic Rep. Harold Ford for retiring Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's seat.

On Thursday, Bush visits Indiana to campaign for GOP Rep. Chris Chocola, who faces Democratic candidate Joe Donnelly in a rematch from 2004.

The first lady will also stump Thursday evening for Sen. Jim Talent, R-Missouri. The first term GOP senator finds himself in a dead heat with Missouri State Auditor Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, in a race that could ultimately decide which party will control the Senate in January
