The Concord Monitor wonders why Senator Lou D'Allesandro's name was missing from the Edwards "leadership committee."
"The absence of D'Allesandro, who is considered one of the state's top political fundraisers, is notable. D'Allesandro is chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. He has said he won't likely support Edwards again, but he won't say who will get his endorsement until after negotiations over the state budget are done.
"I'm taking my time looking everybody over and trying to do my work in the state."
