100 of the supporters of former candidate and Governor of Iowa, Tom Vilsack, have pledged to support John Edwards in his bid for the Presidency. The 100 Iowans include State Representative Kurt Swaim and attorney and Democratic activist Ed Skinner.
Swaim said that he is proud to support Edwards for President, and with "...his leadership, we can get America back on the right path."
Skinner said that John Edwards "...is exactly the kind of leader we need here in Iowa and in our country."
Edwards has consistently been much higher in the polls in Iowa, than his third place in the national surveys. His commitment to visiting Iowa has been shown by his almost 20 visits to the state in the last 2 years.
Edwards will be heading to Iowa again this Friday for a 2 day visit.
Barack Obama will also be there this weekend.
