John Edwards Makes Campaign Appearance in the Swing State... New Jersey

Yeahp. John "If I Was Invisible" Edwards was in Newark, NJ tonight.

NEWARK, N.J. - Before the 2001 terrorist attacks took the lives of her husband and more than 2,700 other victims, Kristen Breitweiser voted Republican.

Just askin'-- do we have any evidence besides the very-liberal-partisan Ms. Breitweiser's say-so for the oft-asserted claim that she used to vote Republican?

Richard Clarke also claimed to have "voted Republican" before deciding Bush was evil. That turned out to not be true at all, except in a very Clintonian sense.

Breitweiser, the media says, was a "registered Republican." But then, I'm a registered Independent, and I'm obviously not terribly Independent at all.

But the Middletown resident who helped elect President George W. Bush now believes wrong choices are being made, especially waging war with Iraq.


In the first visit to New Jersey by a candidate in the 2004 presidential campaign, Edwards criticized Bush's handling of the war on terror and national security issues.


While New Jersey was once considered a lock for the Democrats, recent polls indicate that Bush and his Democratic challenger John Kerry are in a virtual dead heat in the Garden State.

"It must mean that they are at least a little nervous," David Rohde, a political scientist from Michigan State, said referring to the Edwards visit.


Campaign officials would not say how much money they hoped to raise from Tuesday night's scheduled fund-raiser at the Hilton Hotel in East Brunswick.

So far, the Kerry-Edwards campaign in New Jersey has raised nearly $10 million, said Luis Vivciano, a spokesman for the campaign.

Republicans said the Edwards visit is a sign that Democrats are worried about winning New Jersey.

"I think it says a lot that Kerry has to go in and defend territory," said Kevin Madden, a spokesman for the Bush-Cheney '04 campaign.

The fund-raiser was "scheduled," although the reporter doesn't bother telling us when it was scheduled; and the reporter never says that the Newark rally was "scheduled" before recently, either.
