Time to act, Black Caucus tells Bush



Group will back him in bridging race gap
January 27, 2005

FREE PRESS WASHINGTON STAFF


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Congressional Black Caucus presented President George W. Bush with its agenda Wednesday and said it would support him on issues that help close the gap between white and black Americans.


In a meeting described as cordial, the members of Congress came away with the promise of more meetings and left behind their six-point agenda.

It was the group's third meeting with Bush since he took office in 2000. A day earlier, Bush met with black community leaders and ministers.


"It remains to be seen whether this was just a public relations meeting with the Black Caucus," said Rep. John Conyers, a Detroit Democrat. "I interpret all of these meetings as trying to get ... the African-American vote for the Republican Party."
