1,2,3,4...Lets Count The Days Until The Primary

Yesterday, we posted a John Edwards YouTube ad that said the New Hampshire primary was 37 days away. It appears an Edwards staffer got a bit too eager sending us the ad because the primary is actually 41 days away.

The ad begins, "37 million Americans live in poverty, 37 days until the New Hampshire primary, 37 reasons why poverty affects us all ..."

Two things:
1) We're surpised the staffer didn't look at their giant countdown...The Edwards office must have one.
2) We're more surprised we didn't receive a press release from opposing campaigns. One spokesperson called us, but so far no creative statement on the Edwards ad.

UPDATE: An Edwards spokesman writes, "The email that came with it asked for people to come in and volunteer for the weekend canvass and phone banks, which would be 37 days till the primary."

The ad was created for Iowa...which is (was) 37 days away.
