Des Moines, Iowa – The John Edwards for President campaign today released a website specifically for Iowa's first-in-the-nation caucus goers.

It also tracks John and Elizabeth Edwards travels throughout Iowa and it will include pictures and video of their discussions with everyday Iowans.

"Iowa is the first stop in our drive to change America—and success here is going to be critical," said Edwards. "Elizabeth and I have had many opportunities to visit with Iowans over the past few years, but this web site will give Iowans the chance to learn more about my plans for bold change. Most importantly, it is a tool that will help Iowans get involved in the important challenges facing our country today."

  • News from the campaign trail

  • A page allowing caucus goers to get in contact with the nearest campaign office

Additional features and information will be added throughout the campaign, and Edwards invited Iowans—whether they are already supporters or still undecided—to check back at the page frequently to hear the latest news from the campaign.
