Hastert stumps near Bush's Crawford ranch

By ANGELA K. BROWN
Associated Press

WACO Among the dozen or so congressional seats Republicans are hoping to pick up this fall is the district that includes President Bush's Crawford ranch, U.S. House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert said today while campaigning for its GOP candidate.

Hastert, R-Ill., said businessman Van Taylor would make "a great addition" to Congress because he is an Iraq war veteran who understands sacrifices and family values.

"I think this race has a lot of wheels," Hastert said after a private fundraiser for Taylor attended by about 100 people. "Van is one of those stars that we have that we see on the horizon. I think he has a story to tell. I think he has the energy to run this race, and I think he has the credibility to get his message across."

Taylor, who is trying to unseat eight-term U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards, D-Waco, said he was pleased with Hastert's support. Taylor declined to say how much was raised at the fundraiser.
