John Edwards
Press Release - On Day Three Of Coast To Coast Tour, Edwards Brings Fight For The Middle Class To Georgia
January 19th, 2008

From the West Coast to the East Coast, Edwards is the best candidate to win the general election and bring real change to America

Atlanta, Georgia – Today, John Edwards visited Atlanta as part of a coast to coast tour and called on voters to join him to take our country back from powerful entrenched interests and make our government work for working families and the middle class. Speaking at the IBEW Local #613 hall, Edwards outlined his plans to guarantee universal health care, create well paying jobs and enact trade policies that put the interests of workers, not multinational corporations first. Born to a working class family and raised in small, rural towns, Edwards understands the struggles facing working families. He has spent his life standing up to powerful interests – and beating them. As president, Edwards will take on big corporate interests and stand up for hard-working families like the ones he grew up with.

"To get real change, we need a president who will stand up against the big corporations and powerful interests who control Washington," said Edwards. "The American people – whether they live in rural areas or urban areas, red states or blue states – need a President who will stand up for them. As President, I will make sure the voices of all Americans are heard in Washington. If we fight together, we can get the change we need and America will rise."

In Georgia, Edwards enjoys the support of former Georgia Governor Roy Barnes, former Georgia Lt. Governor Mark Taylor, Georgia Senate Democratic Leader Robert Brown, Georgia House Democratic Leader Dubose Porter, former U.S. Rep. Ben "Cooter" Jones, and former U.S. Representative Ed Jenkins. Edwards has also won the support of more than 10,000 union members all across Georgia.

"We need a candidate who can bring real change to America and who can win," said former Georgia Governor Roy Barnes. "That candidate is John Edwards. He can compete and win in every part of the country, including red states and battleground states because Americans identify with who he is and what he stands for – fairness and opportunity and making sure everyone has a chance."

"John Edwards is the change candidate in this campaign who can win in November, strengthen Democratic majorities in Congress and at the state level, and make his ideas a reality," said former Georgia Lt. Governor Mark Taylor. "John Edwards can go to any part of the country and help Democrats down-ballot. With John Edwards as our nominee, we can get the change we need."

From January 17th to January 19th, Edwards is visiting Nevada, California, Oklahoma, Missouri, Georgia and South Carolina to demonstrate his broad, coast to coast strength and his advantage as the best candidate to win the general election. Edwards' message is resonating with voters in red states and blue states, in big cities and small towns. In addition to strong grassroots support in these states, Edwards also enjoys the support of numerous labor groups and state and local elected officials who know that he is the best candidate to win the White House and bring real change to our country. A recent CNN poll showed Edwards was the only Democrat to beat all four leading Republicans nationally, and state by state polls show even more conclusively that Edwards is the most electable democrat in key battleground states -- and even wins in states like Missouri and Oklahoma that have gone "red" in recent pr ...
