Half of the Republican ticket will bring the campaign swing to Lubbock. Vice President Dick Cheney is scheduled to arrive in the Hub City, Monday, August 2.
He's not promoting the President; he's promoting Congressman Randy Neugebauer's re-election campaign against Congressman Charlie Stenholm.
The event will be Monday at the Lubbock Civic Center. Doors open at 2 p.m. Security is expected to be tight. Cheney Event Chair Carla Moran says, "There will be a large number of secret service agents at the event to protect the Vice President and there will also be a lot of local police officers."
Between 1,100 and 1,200 tickets have been sold for the event. That's a record $ 415,000 raised. The event is sold out.
