Kerry Will Follow Cheney, Campaign at Westminster College
Fulton, MO – Democrat John Kerry plans to campaign for President at Westminster College on Friday. The speech will be a follow-up to a speech made there this week by Vice President Dick Cheney.
The college's president, Fletcher Lamkin, says he invited Kerry because he was disappointed when Cheney attacked Kerry during what he was told would be a major foreign policy speech.
Cheney's spokeswoman says the speech always was intended as a campaign event.
Lamkin added that he didn't mean to imply that the tone and content of Cheney's remarks were inappropriate. But he said that, since some of the speech was political, he felt a need to present the other side of important issues facing the nation.
The exact details of Kerry's visit - time, location, etc. - have not been finalized.
Kerry also plans a campaign stop in St. Louis on Friday.
