I’m confident that Iowa caucus-goers will support Senator Edwards for many of the same reasons I do, including his understanding of, and connection to, rural America. I was proud to endorse Senator Edwards earlier this year because of his detailed plan for reenergizing rural American economies. Whether it’s renewable energy, economic revitalization or rural health care, I know that as President, Senator Edwards will continue to prioritize the needs of families in rural areas across the country.
