Should The Presidents Campaign Pay For These?

Fri Apr 22, 2011 11:42 am

They may be necessary but shouldn't the Presidents campaign, now and in the future, have to at least pay a rental fee for their use?

Each large bus carries a price tag of $1.1 million. They are being built in Nashville.

Will his competitor get the same deal if not?

There will be two of the special tour buses. The Republican nominee for president will be able to campaign in one as well.

Doesn't answer the question, how much will the campaigns have to pay, if anything, for their use.

I think that the incumbent should have to play by the same rules as the challenger.

Is the bus driven across the country when the campaign is on and candidates make numerous hops by plane ?

That is an interesting question, will it fit on a C17? I guess it will.
