Senator John Edwards' NH Grassroots Support Continues to Grow

26 Seacoast Grassroots Leaders and Activists Support Senator Edwards' Leadership and Bold Ideas

(Manchester, NH) - Today, the John Edwards for President campaign announced that 26 grassroots activists have endorsed Senator John Edwards for President and will form the Edwards for President Seacoast Regional Leadership Committee. 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.

These endorsers include three State Representatives, a Town Chair, a Town Selectman, an NEA Executive Board Member, the former Chair of Veterans for Kerry, a Republican activist, and 18 grassroots activists.

The John Edwards for President campaign has so far announced 231 endorsements since last Monday.

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.
