President to visit Greenwich to raise funds

By Neil Vigdor
Staff Writer

Published September 20 2006

GREENWICH -- President Bush may be playing it coy about whom he is supporting in Connecticut's Senate race, but he isn't holding anything back when it comes to raising money for state Republicans.

The Connecticut native will return Monday to his father's Greenwich hometown for the third time during his presidency, headlining a $15,000 per couple GOP luncheon fundraiser at a private home in the Riverside section of Greenwich.

The White House confirmed Bush's visit yesterday but released few details about the event, which a spokesman said was private.

State GOP Chairman George Gallo said the fundraiser will energize the party's faithful.

"We're absolutely excited and ecstatic to have the president of the United States come to Connecticut to support the Republican Party and the Republican team," said Gallo, who is hoping to raise about $400,000 from 30 couples.

Gallo said proceeds will support the party's effort this fall and its entire ticket, including U.S. Senate nominee Alan Schlesinger.

"He's one of our candidates, so absolutely," Gallo said.

Schlesinger, a former Derby mayor and former state representative, is trailing incumbent Joseph Lieberman and Democrat Ned Lamont in the Senate contest. Lieberman, who is running as a petitioning candidate after losing the Democratic primary to Lamont, has historically enjoyed strong Republican support. Bush has declined to endorse Schlesinger, fueling speculation that he is supporting Lieberman.
