John Edwards Buzz: the Workin' Man's Candidate

Matt from Rhode Island's Future reports that the Carpenters Union intend to endorse John Edwards. This is great news for JRE and the first union endorsement for him.

Nice to be first. The Carpenters are nailing for the best candidate.

This is what JRE had to say:

"I am honored to receive the support of the Carpenters Union," said Edwards. "For more than a century, they have been fighting for working Americans and standing up for the values that have made our country great - hard work, responsibility, and fairness. America was built by men and women who worked with their hands, and it's labor that made our country great. I look forward to joining with the Carpenters to build One America, where every person has the chance to work hard and get ahead."

I read on the Daily Kos (where I first saw this) that JRE is going to be a guest at a Labor Council gathering on Monday. Ah, there is a good reason for that: the Steelworkers are endorsing Edwards too.

Other good news today: JRE pulled up to second in the polls in South Carolina today. I understand he is at a rally in Spartanburg as I type this message.

Don't count out John Edwards. He is the most electable of all of the candidates.

More buzz l8tr...
