Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards is back on the campaign trail after taking a short break for the Christmas holiday.
Edwards has several events planned Wednesday in New Hampshire,
which will hold the nation's first primary early next month. The Democratic candidate for president starts with town hall meetings
Wednesday afternoon in the towns of Conway and Laconia.
The campaign is entering a final sprint this week, with the Iowa caucuses scheduled for January 3. Edwards is in a tight race in Iowa with New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and Illinois Senator Barack Obama.
