9-5-05 - Former Presidents Bush and Clinton hope to relieve the suffering of thousands of Americans by raising money to rebuild and assist with medical services in three states hit by Hurricane Katrina.
Bush and Clinton were set to formally announce the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund on Monday at Reliant Center, which sits adjacent to the Astrodome. Both complexes and an arena at the site are home to 24,000 of Katrina's refugees, left homeless by the storm. Statewide there are almost 240,000 evacuees in Texas.
The political odd couple first teamed up earlier this year to raise money for tsunami victims. The pair raised $11 million during that effort.
The money raised by the newest nationwide fund-raising campaign will go to the governors in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama to assist with disaster relief.
President Bush asked his father and Clinton to pair up again based on the success they had raising money for tsunami victims, former President Bush's spokesman Jim McGrath said Sunday.
