Edwards Promises To Spend More Time In New Hampshire

Johnn Edwards

Presidential hopeful John Edwards says he and wife Elizabeth plan to spend more time in New Hampshire.

The former North Carolina senator hopes to boost his chances against his two main rivals for the Democratic nomination. Most polls show Edwards leading in Iowa. But they show him in second or third place in New Hampshire, behind Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Edwards drew plenty of support in New Hampshire in 2004. He ultimately lost to John Kerry, but his strong showing in New Hampshire and elsewhere led Kerry to pick him as his running mate.
