Dick Cheney is scheduled to visit Westminster College in Fulton on Monday.

Mike Odneal, Westminster College media spokesman, did not confirm or deny Cheney’s visit but said that more details would be available today. He referred calls to the White House press office, which could not be reached for comment.

Monday will mark Cheney’s second visit to Missouri within a year. The vice president spoke at the MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources commencement ceremony in May.

Missouri GOP Communications Director Paul Sloca said that he was familiar with the visit but could not confirm it.

Cheney is scheduled to speak at a campaign luncheon for U.S. Rep. Sam Graves in Kansas City today.

Since 1937, Westminster’s John Findley Greene lecture series has brought a number of prominent politicians to the college, including Winston Churchill, Mikhail Gorbachev and former Presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush.
