Cheney makes last-minute campaign stop in Everett


Herald Writer

EVERETT – One day before the election, Snohomish County will get its first visit from a vice presidential candidate, with a rally this afternoon1 at Paine Field with Republican Dick Cheney.

The rally will be in Paine Field’s Hangar C-84. The doors open at 2 p.m., and the rally starts at 3 p.m.

It’s part of a last-minute flurry of campaigning.

George W. Bush’s running mate has a full day today. Cheney’s Everett stop is sandwiched between visits to Las Vegas and Portland, Ore., this morning and Pasco and Jackson, Wyo., this evening.

Cheney’s wife, Lynne, visited the county two weeks ago with a stop at the Stanwood Senior Center while her husband campaigned in Spokane.

Free tickets are required to get in. They can be picked up beginning at 10 a.m. today at Republican headquarters at 3719 Rucker Ave. in Everett or 4001 198th St. SW, No. 2, in Lynnwood. For more information call 425-258-3435.

GOP gubernatorial candidate John Carlson will emcee the event, which will also feature Republicans U.S. Sen. Slade Gorton, congressional candidates John Koster and Dan McDonald, and other statewide and local candidates.

The Democratic vice presidential candidate, Joe Lieberman, was in Washington Sunday evening for a rally in south Seattle.

All the candidates will be pushing hard today to prepare for Tuesday’s election.

Bush plans to visit Tennessee, Wisconsin, Iowa, Arkansas and Texas.

Democratic candidates Al Gore and Lieberman and their wives plan to travel to 15 different cities in 11 different states. Gore’s daughters are also campaigning for him today.
