Yesterday, about 75 people gathered to hear John Edwards speak at the Earl Bourdon Senior Center, in Claremont. The stop was a part of a swing through western New Hampshire. At the three town hall forums, Edwards stressed his plans to help rural America and the economically disenfranchised. The 2004 Democratic Vice-Presidential nominee and former North Carolina Senator argued that increasing the minimum wage and promoting unions are solutions to helping ailing communities in the Granite State. In Claremont, Edwards urged the citizens to keep pressure on politicians because, "Rhetoric doesn't solve anything."
