Connie, security is the job of the Secret Service - which is unable to provide the actual manpower to do the job. Thus local law enforcement carries the bulk of any Presidential visit - at expense to the locality. A campaign visit is not a Presidential visit, it is a political function, and thus a locality can bill the party for services rendered. I worked about 30 VP/Presidential and other visits in my local LE career...
