Bush Stays Neutral on Recall

President Bush is remaining officially neutral in the campaign to recall Governor Davis despite the presence of Arnold Schwarzenegger, a celebrity Republican with ties to the Bush family.

White House spokesman Ken Lisaius says “It´s a matter for the people of California.” But Bush´s political advisers are weighing what steps, if any, to take as the California campaign proceeds and calculating the potential impact on Bush´s own re-election effort.

Several administration officials and Bush political advisers say the entrance of Schwarzenegger will not affect Bush´s two-day trip to Calfornia next week. Bush is to visit with troops near San Diego, raise money for his campaign and tour the Santa Monica Mountains on Thursday and Friday of next week.
