NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: Hello, again, from Philadelphia. We want to take you back now live to Springdale, Arkansas. The George W. Bush-Dick Cheney event continues there. And traveling alongside the campaign this week, as they wind their way to Philadelphia, is CNN's Jonathan Karl.
He's here to tell us more about what's going on with the campaign right now -- Jonathan.
JONATHAN KARL, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Natalie, this is really the first rally of this pre-convention tour that George W. Bush and his running mate Dick Cheney are taking on their way to the convention in Philadelphia. Bush standing before the crowd in Springdale High School, talking about he will bring his message of compassionate conservative to Washington and restore honor and dignity, in his words, to the White House.
Dick Cheney at his side. Cheney spoke before him, for about three minute. Cheney also bringing a message, very low key, Cheney only spoke for about three minutes, but spoke a similar message.
Now Bush visits five states on his way to the convention in Philadelphia. Five states that were all carried by the Democrats in the presidential elections of '92 and '96, five states Republicans have not carried for 12 years. But in each of those states, all adding up to 74 electoral votes, Republicans now, the Bush-Cheney ticket now leading in recent polls.
Those states are Arkansas; from here we go to Missouri; then on to Ohio, West Virginia and finally into Pennsylvania.
Natalie, back to you.
ALLEN: All right, Jonathan. If you think it is loud there, just wait until he gets here to Philadelphia. Thanks.
