TUCSON -- John Edwards, former US Senator and Dem VP candidate in 04, was here today to raise money for Gabrielle Giffords and rally voters for her, Rep. Raul Grijalva, Jim Pederson, and many candidates.
Here is a cel phone shot of Edwards marching out with Pederson today downtown to a big crowd. Do these guys look ready for battle, or what?
Edwards, now Director of a poverty center at Univ. of North Carolina, focused on poverty, living wages, and alternative energy in his effective motivating speech.
Grijalva, Giffords, and Pederson all also were good on the mic.
Once again, visits of prominent national leaders like John Edwards show the importance of the political movement in Tucson and Arizona.
