Cheney, McCain to Lead Mich. Rally

Vice President Dick Cheney (search) and U.S. Sen. John McCain (search) plan to hold a Bush-Cheney '04 rally on Friday in the state's capital city.

The rally at Lansing Center will come three days after President Bush makes a campaign stop in Marquette. McCain, a Republican from Arizona, has been featured in a recent ad touting Bush's efforts in the war on terrorism.

Cheney was in Michigan last month, making a campaign stop near Saginaw.

Bush's latest campaign effort, which kicks off Tuesday, seeks to court rural voters in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin, closely shadowing Democratic rival John Kerry's recent Midwestern tour.
