Sen John Edwards' NH Bus Tour Approaches, Grassroots Support Continues to Grow

33 Manchester and Southern Tier Grassroots Leaders and Activists Support Senator Edwards' Leadership and Bold Ideas

 

(Manchester, NH) - Today, the John Edwards for President Campaign announced that 33 grassroots activists have endorsed Senator John Edwards for President and will form Regional Leadership Committees. As Edwards' "Fighting for One America" New Hampshire bus tour rapidly approaches, his grassroots support across the state continues to grow.

"I am honored to have the support of these New Hampshire leaders and activists," said Edwards. "They share my vision of One America that works for everyone, One America where every person who works hard can get ahead. Fighting together, we can bring real change to our country — change that families here in New Hampshire and across our country so desperately need."

Edwards continues to drive the Democratic agenda with his specific ideas to transform our country. WhileWashington continues to offer only rhetoric, empty talk and half-measures, Edwards is offering courage, conviction and bold ideas to build One America.

The endorsers include a State Representative, a former State Party Vice Chair, two Democratic Town Chairs, the Former President of the State Employees Association and 27 grassroots activists. These leaders join the 45-member Merrimack County Regional Leadership Committee that was announced Monday, the 57 endorsements from Claremont, Keene, and the Upper Valley that were announced Tuesday, the 37 endorsements from the Lake Region and North Country that were announced Wednesday, and the 28 endorsements from Nashua that were announced Thursday.

The John Edwards for President Campaign has so far announced 205 endorsements this week.

The New Hampshire bus tour will be from August 23-26. Please contact Kate Bedingfield for more information or to RSVP for the tour, kbedingfield@johnedwards.com.
