Bush speaks to insurance group in Colorado Springs
COLORADO SPRINGS — Former President George W. Bush has made an appearance in Colorado, speaking to an insurance industry group in Colorado Springs.
Bush’s spokesman, David Sherzer, says Bush spoke this morning to the Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers at the luxury Broadmoor hotel.
The event was closed to the public, and Sherzer says he doesn’t know what Bush’s topic was.
Sherzer says Bush will have about 70 speaking engagements in the U.S. and abroad this year, many of them unpublicized. He declined to say what type of fee Bush commands.
Vice President Dick Cheney was scheduled to speak to the insurance group in Colorado Monday night. Neither Cheney’s spokesman nor officials with the insurance group immediately returned calls today.
