Bush Campaigns for Pa., Va. Candidates
By JENNIFER LOVEN , 10.19.2006, 06:52 PM

President Bush campaigned Thursday for a congressman who has confessed to adultery and a senator accused of racial insensitivity, seeking to boost incumbent Republicans once safe for re-election but now in peril.

Bush's appearances for Rep. Don Sherwood here and for Sen. George Allen in Richmond, Va., found the White House on the defensive over the decision to try to help candidates in such straits as the GOP struggles to keep control of Congress.

"I think the president understands that it's important to set high standards," said spokesman Tony Snow.
