Today, 11 days before the New Hampshire primary, the John Edwards for President campaign began airing a new television spot in New Hampshire. In the ad, entitled “Born For,” Edwards tells voters that standing up to powerful interests on behalf of the middle class is the fight he was born for.
Full Transcript of “Born For” (30 seconds):
I’m John Edwards and I approve this message.
For 25 years, corporate greed has gotten its way in Washington
Destroying American jobs and the middle class -
While the establishment did nothing.
Insurance giants killed health care.
Energy giants make billions from insane gas prices.
And more jobs were lost.
As much as we like to think so, good intentions won’t change a thing.
Corporate greed won’t be stopped without a president who fights for you.
Saving the middle class will be an epic battle,
And that’s a fight I was born for.
