Bush sets California schedule
Following up on our story today about the trip of President Bush to California next week, here's the detailed schedule for the president, straight from White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan's morning briefing:
*On Friday, April 21, Bush will travel to San Jose, where he'll participate in a panel on the American Competitiveness Initiative. He'll overnight in St. Helena on Friday.
*On Saturday, the president will tour a California Fuel Cell partnership in West Sacramento. He'll make remarks on advanced transportation technology in West Sacramento, and then fly to Palm Springs for a fund-raising reception for the Republican National Committee. Bush will spend the night in Rancho Mirage.
*On Sunday, the president will attend a church service, have lunch with Marine Corps and Navy families and attend a Marine Corps training exercise, all in Twentynine Palms. He'll spend a second night in Rancho Mirage.
The times on all the events won't be announced until next week. As always, the president's schedule could change, with events added or moved.
CA: Bush to visit area base, GOP fundraiser (Twentynine Palms and Coachella Valley)
Riverside Press-Enterprise ^ | 4/15/06 | David Olson
President Bush will visit the Coachella Valley and the Twentynine Palms Marine base next weekend.
Bush will attend a Republican National Committee fundraiser at the Toscana Country Club in Indian Wells on April 22. Tickets to the dinner cost ,000, said Palm Desert Mayor Jim Ferguson, a longtime Republican activist who received an invitation but is not attending.
Bush will spend the nights of April 22 and April 23 in Rancho Mirage, said Alex Conant, a White House spokesman. However, the White House is not yet divulging where in Rancho Mirage the president will stay, he said.
On April 23, Bush will attend church services at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms before having lunch with Marine and Navy families, Conant said.
The president will then observe training exercises that Marines participate in before deployment to Iraq, said Capt. Chad Walton, spokesman for the base. The exercises include training in a simulated Iraqi town, mock attacks on military convoys and live-fire practice with pop-up targets, Walton said.
On Monday and Wednesday, about 160 Marines and Navy sailors are scheduled to return to Twentynine Palms from Iraq after seven months of deployment, said Sgt. Christopher Cox. He added he does not know whether the president plans to meet with the Marines and sailors.
Bush is scheduled to return to Washington on April 24. The White House itinerary said events prior to his return to the White House that day are still to be determined.
This will be the president's second Inland visit in the past eight months. In August, Bush visited a Rancho Cucamonga senior center to discuss changes in the Medicare program.
In October 2003, he visited Riverside and San Bernardino, and he campaigned in Riverside in 1999 for the GOP primary. In May 2000, Bush campaigned in Palm Springs and attended a fundraiser in Rancho Mirage.
Before arriving in the Inland area next week, Bush will travel to Northern California. He will arrive in San Jose on Friday to attend a panel on the American Competitiveness Initiative at Cisco Systems Inc., and will spend Friday night in St. Helena.
On April 22, Bush will tour The California Fuel Cell Partnership in West Sacramento before flying to the desert. Gov. Schwarzenegger hopes to meet with Bush during his California visit, although a time and location have not been set, said Margita Thompson, the governor's press secretary.
