From The Edwards Campaign:
Today, the John Edwards for President campaign launched a new ad in New Hampshire entitled 'Heroes.' In the ad, Edwards reaffirms his commitment to honoring and fighting for America's true heroes – the working men and women of our country. The ad features footage of Edwards speaking at a campaign event, interspersed with images of hardworking Americans.
Full Transcript of Ad:
If you're looking for heroes, don't look to me. Don't look to Elizabeth. We have support. We have health care. We have the American people behind us.
Look to them. They are the ones who we speak for. They are the ones that we stand up for.
And Elizabeth and I decided, in the quiet of a hospital room, after 12 hours of tests and after getting very bad news, what we were going to spend our lives doing, for all those that have no voice.
We're not going to quietly go away. Instead we're going to go out and fight for what it is we believe in.
It is time for our party, the Democratic Party, to show a little backbone, to have a little guts. To stand up for working men and women. If we are not their voice they will never have a voice.
I'm John Edwards and I approve this message.
