Barbara Bush, wife of the first President Bush, will be coming to Vermont on Sept. 6 to campaign for Republican congressional candidate Martha Rainville. This will be the second Mrs. Bush to travel to Vermont on Rainville's behalf. Current first lady Laura Bush came to a fund-raiser at the Inn at Essex in May.
Word of the new visit started seeping out last night after Rainville campaign aide Judy Shailor sent out an e-mail to supporters.
Details of time and place are still being worked out.
