Vice-President Cheney To Make Lubbock Stop for Neugebauer Campaign

As promised, the Vice-President of the United States is coming to Lubbock. News of the visit came on Monday, just weeks after the Dick Cheney's initial visit to the Hub City was postponed.

Three weeks from Monday Vice-President Dick Cheney will be at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center in a rally for Congressman Randy Neugebauer in a very important congressional race. "On behalf of Congressman Randy Neugebauer, we are very excited and honored to announce the visit of Vice-President Dick Cheney to the city of Lubbock," announced Carla Moran, of the Neugebauer Campaign.

Poll Shows Neugebauer has Slight Lead Over Stenholm
A new poll shows Randy Neugebauer has an 8 point lead over Charlie Stenholm.

Supporters of the Randy Neugebauer campaign postponed the Vice-President's initial visit last month, due to the death of former President Ronald Reagan. Now, they are proud to announce, Cheney's still made plans to come to the Hub City.

Since Congressman Neugebauer announced he's running for District 19 against Charlie Stenholm, Cheney has shown strong support for his campaign. "President Bush, Vice-President Cheney and Congressman Neugebauer all share the same values that are so important to West Texas," Moran says.

Cheney's support should provide a great financial boost to Neugebauer's campaign needs. He's estimating that the campaign against Stenholm will cost $1.5 million.

With Vice-President Cheney coming you can expect security will be very tight. He will be surrounded by secret service men and we're told he will only be here for an hour.

Cheney's visit will be on the evening of August 2nd. There are a limited number of tickets available so if you want to go make plans to get your tickets early. They are $25 per person. Children under 16 years of age are free but must have a ticket for security reasons.

You can call (806) 797-3197 to reserve your seat. By the way if you purchased a ticket for his initial visit, those tickets are still good.
