President Bush stopped in Little Rock on Wednesday to raise money for Republican gubernatorial nominee Asa Hutchinson. During a private lunch at former Arkansas Razorback basketball player Joe Kleine’s house in west Little Rock, more than 800 people contributed about $400,000 to Hutchinson’s campaign and about $250,000 to the state Republican Party, according to a Hutchinson spokesman.

Wednesday’s lunch was closed to reporters, but Bush later addressed them on the sidewalk outside Cotham’s in the City, a restaurant near the state Capitol. “I came in to get some fried chocolate pie,” Bush said, holding up a small bag. “I look forward to eating it. It’s a pleasure to be here.
