Vice President Dick Cheney showed up in Everett Monday to stump for a Republican congressional candidate.

Much of his 16-minute speech, however, was devoted to defending administration policy on the Iraq conflict and government surveillance.

Outside the Holiday Inn hotel where Cheney spoke, dozens of demonstrators pro and con lined a street.

After the speech, Cheney flew to Spokane for a rally-the-troops speech at Fairchild Air Force Base and a political fundraiser for GOP Senate candidate Mike McGavick, who's challenging Democratic Sen. Maria Cantwell.
