INDIANAPOLIS (July 8, 2005) -- The White House announced today that President Bush has accepted Governor Mitch Daniels' invitation to visit Indianapolis to attend the Indiana Black Expo Corporate Luncheon and Awards event on July 14.

"I invited President Bush because I believe it is time this great event was honored with a presidential visit. I am trying to speak to the need for Indiana to be unified across all lines, and I know the President shares those thoughts,” said Governor Daniels.

The event is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. at the RCA Dome and is sold out.

The Indiana Black Expo 35th Anniversary Summer Celebration began July 7 and continues through July 17. The event is the largest African-American event in the nation and includes business workshops, health and wellness, employment opportunities, spiritual enrichment and a number of other events and activities.
