President Bush's Planned Visit Spurs Opposition Efforts

Denver (AP) Some critics of President Bush and Fourth District Representative Marilyn Musgrave are planning opposition events, as Bush prepares for a fundraising stop in Colorado. Bush is scheduled to help the G.O.P. congresswoman raise money during a noontime visit Tuesday to the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver.

The group Progressnow plans a portable billboard with Musgrave's picture and a yet–to–be–announced slogan, following a contest that drew about 600 caption suggestions.

Meantime, a group called Friends of Angie Paccione for Congress is hosting a series of "house parties" Monday night at homes along the Front Range and eastern Colorado. Progressnow also plans to gather in front of the capitol Tuesday morning, then walk downtown for a loud protest in front of the hotel.

Paccione calls Musgrave, "nothing but a rubber stamp for indicted felon Tom DeLay and the corrupt house leadership."
