Poor ticket sales, expected protests scuttle Bush-McCain fundraiser at Phoenix Convention Center
by Mike Sunnucks
A Tuesday fundraiser headlined by President Bush for U.S. Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign is being moved out of the Phoenix Convention Center.

Sources familiar with the situation said the Bush-McCain event was not selling enough tickets to fill the Convention Center space, and that there were concerns about more anti-war protesters showing up outside the venue than attending the fundraiser inside.

The peace march will continue as planned!
