President Bush is headed to Ohio again

The Associated Press

        WASHINGTON — President Bush is planning another trip to Ohio, less a month after delivering the commencement speech at Ohio State University, a White House official confirmed Monday.

        Bush was planning to be in Cleveland on July 1, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

        Ohio Republican sources said details of the trip were not finalized but it was not expected to be connected to a candidate fund-raiser. Bush was expected to address topics connected to his domestic agenda, the sources said.

        The president's schedule is usually released on Fridays for the following week. All plans are subject to change.

        In the year and a half since Bush became president, he has visited Ohio six times, including the appearance June 14 to Ohio State. On most of those trips he has promoted major parts of his domestic agenda — education, welfare reform and, after Sept. 11, community service. On only one visit did he raise money or campaign for a candidate.

        Robert Bennett, chairman of the Ohio Republican Party, said earlier this month that he expected Bush to return to the state in July for another issue-oriented event. The party declined to comment Monday on the Cleveland trip.
