June 20, 2003

(Greensboro-AP) -- President Bush visits the middle Georgia town of Greensboro today as part of his first cross-country swing for his 2004 re-election bid.

The president is visiting Greensboro for a $2,000-a-ticket fund-raiser at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, a golf resort about 70 miles east of Atlanta. The Ritz-Carlton has played host to several state Republican events.

Governor Perdue -- the state's first Republican governor since Reconstruction -- went to Greensboro in April to meet with other Southern Republican governors. The resort is owned by Mercer Reynolds, Bush's campaign finance chairman. The president visited Reynolds Plantation in his first campaign for president and has been fishing on Lake Oconee at least once.

Once among the poorest areas in the state, Greensboro is becoming a hotspot for Republican fund-raisers.

The Greensboro stop is part a nationwide tour includes visits in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Miami.
