SHEPHERDSVILLE - The First Lady of the United States will make a visit in Shepherdsville on Monday.

First Lady Laura Bush will be part of the 2008 Victory Rally on Monday at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

According to the Republican Party of Kentucky, Bush will be in Shepherdsville to speak at around 12:40 p.m.

She is slated to be joined by several Republicans on the Nov. 4 ballot, including Trina Summers, who is seeking the state House of Representatives seat in the 49th District; state Sen. Brett Guthrie, who is seeking to fill the seat in the U.S. House of Representatives for the Second Congressional District open due to incumbent Ron Lewis not running for another term; and unopposed state House candidates Dwight Butler and David Floyd.

“We’re honored that Mrs. Bush has chosen to join us in the final hours of the campaign season,” said Summers in a release from the Republican Party. “Nothing is more important than energizing voters in the last 72 hours and with her help, we’ll send experienced conservative leaders to Washington, D.C., and Frankfort.”

“We are excited to welcome Mrs. Bush to Kentucky as we head into the final stretch of this election to bring home a victory,” said Guthrie.

To attend the event, you must have a ticket. And the deadline to acquire the free tickets was on Sunday, Nov. 2.

Doors will open at 11 a.m. and the activities will start after noon. Bush is scheduled to speak at around 12:40 p.m.
