With opinion polls showing that most young voters think Bush would bring back the draft, Bush stated that voting for him is "the best way to avoid" it. Bush repeated that he opposes mandatory military service to an audience in Ohio.
Bush said: "We will not have an all-volunteer army. Let me restate that. We will not have a draft. The best way to avoid a draft is to vote for me."
Bush accuses Kerry of playing politics with this issue and notes Kerry's vote against the $87 bill.
This weekend, Bush also showed up at a Florida stadium, wearing rock star clothing. As both candidates stump, lawyers on both sides are preparing to possible election challenges. A Bush lawyer says "days or weeks" could pass before we have a winner.
