Today, President Bush and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) will hold a joint fundraiser in Phoenix. But McCain has been doing everything possible to avoid a public appearance with the President, as the event will be private and “out of the public eye.” Politico’s Jonathan Martin adds that in “its daily e-mail update to reporters this morning, McCain’s campaign made no mention that the leader of the free world would be appearing with the candidate tonight.”

Update

MSNBC reports that the White House has “confirm[ed]” that the fundraiser was moved to a private location to “avoid cameras”:
