    New York City Firefighters To Endorse Bush



    Associated Press

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The union representing New York's City's 8-thousand-600 firefighters will endorse President Bush tonight at a social club in Elmhurst, Queens.

    Uniformed Firefighters Association president Steve Cassidy said he'll announce the union's endorsement as he stands beside Bush at the Italian Charities of America hall. Cassidy and Bush will share a meal of pizza and sodas with about 100 firefighters and watch Vice President Dick Cheney's address to the Republican National Convention.

    The U-F-A's endorsement is loaded with symbolism. The Fire Department of New York lost 343 members on September 11th. An enduring image of the aftermath of the tragedy is footage of Bush with his arm around a firefighter at ground zero addressing rescue workers through a bullhorn.

    The union, which has traditionally backed both Republicans and Democrats in local and state elections, did not make an endorsement in the 2000 presidential race.

    This year, the Bush campaign has been working to evoke Bush's response to the attacks without opening the campaign to criticism that it is exploiting a tragedy for political ends.

    Bush is scheduled to arrive in New York today and address the convention tomorrow night. A Republican Party source, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said Bush would also visit two firehouses tonight.

    The International Association of Fire Fighters has endorsed Democratic Senator John Kerry, along with the union representing the city's 2-thousand-900 fire lieutenants, captains and other officers.
