Minnesota Labor Folks Welcome Back John Edwards

and in -11 degree temps.

ST. PAUL - A crowd of more than 1,200 packed the Carpenters union hall Tuesday to hear Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards -- one week before Minnesotans go to their party caucuses as part of the Feb. 5 "Super Tuesday."

"We have such important work to do in this country," the Star Tribune quoted Edwards as saying. "I think we've had enough of a president kowtowing to big money and the big corporations."

In recent primaries and caucuses for the Democratic presidential nomination, Edwards has run third behind Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Several unions, including the United Steelworkers, the Carpenters and the United Mine Workers have endorsed Edwards.


You may recall that to this day, JRE had the only electoral vote (apart from Kerry) from MN in 2004--I don't think it was a fluke!

  • (1.30.08) - Thinking of you today, Benny.

    Edwards was a tremendous candidate. He remains an important voice.

    You must be so proud of your candidate, as well as Elizabeth Edwards. Their lives and what they fight for every day are so important and their mission will never end.

    Best to you,
