National Environmental Group To Air Radio Ad Backing Edwards

A national environmental group that recently endorsed Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards will begin airing a radio ad today praising him.

The ad by Friends of the Earth Action intersperses audio of Edwards describing his goal of reducing carbon emissions by at least 80 percent by 2050 with the voice of an announcer who hails his "courage to lead on global warming."

The 60-second spot will air for one week on stations in Concord, Manchester and the seacoast region of New Hampshire.
