    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Tuesday, October 26, 2004

    Ed's life, in Dick's hands. Or something like that ... 

    One week before Election Day, Vice President Cheney sprinted across the battleground state of Florida, holding rallies in three regions of the electoral-vote rich state.

    In heavily Democratic Palm Beach County, which Al Gore won with 62 percent of the vote in 2000, flamboyant former New York City Mayor Ed Koch introduced Cheney.

    "He's a man who I would give my life to in his hands to protect," Koch gushed of the vice president, creating an intriguing if grammatically confusing visual.

    Koch's presence, in a county teeming with New York snowbirds, was an attempt to appeal to "discerning Democrats," said Cheney spokeswoman Anne Womack.

    Cheney's other events were in more reliably Republican areas in the Florida panhandle: Pensacola and Lake City.

    Cheney was scheduled to spend the night in Florida and hold one more rally there Wednesday morning before heading off to other swing states in colder climes.
