White House says Bush targeting Dem voters
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The White House said Monday President Bush is targeting Democrats and undecided voters -- not just the GOP faithful -- on his final campaign swing on the eve of Election Day.
"This is not simply an effort to talk to Republican voters, but also Democrats and undecideds who might be inclined to agree with the president, especially on the war on terror, but also on the economy," White House Press Secretary Tony Snow told reporters on Air Force One.
Snow also said recent polls indicating the GOP is gaining momentum mirror what he has seen on the ground as the president barnstorms across the country.
"One of the thing's we've seen, there are a lot of people who have been leaning Democrat going into the undecided camp, and people in the undecided camp moving into the Republican camp." Snow said.
President Bush spends the final day before the midterm elections in Florida, Arkansas, and Texas.
