KANSAS CITY, Mo. Sen. John Kerry plans to have minor surgery Wednesday to repair a shoulder that he injured on the campaign trail.
Kerry spokesman David Wade said the Massachusetts senator tore the subscapularis, a muscle beneath the scapula in his right shoulder, when he braced himself during an abrupt stop on his Iowa campaign bus several weeks ago.
After the surgery, Kerry will use a sling for roughly a week, campaign spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said. She said Kerry will return to work Thursday for administrative business and resume a public schedule next Sunday.
Bush backers to celebrate reaching $170 million goal
CRAWFORD, Texas President Bush's fund-raising odyssey is coming to an end, but the dollars will continue to flow into his war chest.
Having crossed his goal of $170 million, Bush's money drive comes full-circle with a fund-raiser Wednesday night in Washington the same place the push for cash started June 17, 2003. The final fund-raiser is likely to be next month, campaign officials say.
The president also plans a pair of thank-you events Friday in Greensboro, Ga., home of his finance chairman, Mercer Reynolds III. The appearances are meant to show Bush's appreciation to backers who rounded up the biggest donations the president's "rangers," "pioneers" and "mavericks" campaign spokesman Scott Stanzel said yesterday.
The Bush campaign's Internet and direct-mail operations will continue to solicit and accept donations, two advisers said.
