Chabot cancels Laura Bush fundraiser

Enquirer Washington Bureau reporter Malia Rulon has just learned:

Two days before Rep. Steve Chabot was to welcome Laura Bush to Cincinnati for a campaign fundraiser, the Westwood Republican announced late Wednesday that he’s postponing the event.

Chabot, who’s up for re-election this November against Democrat John Cranley, said he learned earlier on Wednesday that the funeral for Marine Cpl. Timothy Roos of Delhi Township, who was killed July 27 during an enemy attack in Ramadi, Iraq, would be held at the same time on Friday as his breakfast fundraiser with the first lady.

“I decided to postpone it out of respect for the family,” Chabot said. “I didn’t want our event with the first lady to distract in any way from the tribute to Corporal Roos and his service to our country.”

Visitation for Roos will be held Thursday evening at Vitt, Stermer & Anderson Funeral Home; mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Friday at St. Dominic's Church, both in Delhi.
Chabot said he plans to attend the funeral on Friday and that the event at Union Terminal with the first lady would be rescheduled.

Roos, who was 21, leaves his wife, Sara, and their 2-week-old daughter, Annaliese.
