Vice President Dick Cheney plans to visit Michigan next week to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Mike Bouchard and meet with members of the National Guard.
Cheney will attend an afternoon rally on Monday with members of the Michigan National Guard at the Grand Valley Armory in Wyoming.
He then will join Bouchard for a private fundraising reception in East Grand Rapids to collect money for the Oakland County sheriff's campaign against Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.
Stabenow has led Bouchard in polling and fundraising, but Republicans contend the race will tighten as the campaign nears Election Day.
