Bush Caps Fund-Raising Tour In Kansas

President Bush has been wrapping up three days of closed-door fund-raising with a stop in Kansas in an effort to help Republicans pick up a congressional seat.

The political event was expected to raise at least $435,000, with most of it going to the campaign of state Senator Nick Jordan. He's trying to unseat House Democrat Dennis Moore.

It was Bush's fifth fund-raiser in a week in which he raised millions of dollars for the national Republican Party and presumptive presidential nominee John McCain.

Earlier today, the president spent an hour visiting leaders of the Mormon church in Salt Lake City.

He'll return to Washington later in the day.
