Edwards uses his new ad in Iowa to accuse President Bush of shortchanging education and health care needs to fund tax cuts for the wealthy, according to John Wagner of the Raleigh News and Observer. LINK
"John Edwards is launching ads in Iowa that criticize President Bush's economic record, with the Democrat calling it 'outrageous that this president has turned a five trillion dollar surplus into a five trillion dollar deficit,'" the AP reports. LINK
"The new 60-second commercial began airing Monday in Iowa and will move quickly to New Hampshire … ."
"The North Carolina senator … has been running ads in Iowa and New Hampshire, but those spots were largely biographical. The latest ads are designed to highlight his differences with Bush."
Per the AP's Jennifer Kerry, Larry Klayman, "well known around Washington for his relentless pursuit of the Clintons during the 1990s and more recently for suing Vice President Cheney," has decided he wants to run for the Senate seat currently held by Bob Graham. LINK
From ABC News' Lieberman campaign reporter Talesha Reynolds:
In an appearance with Bustamante in San Francisco, Lieberman drew a parallel between the recall and the recount. "I'm not a stranger to unusual attempts by the Republican party with regard to elections as you may know from the year 2000."
Lieberman was a kinder gentler version of himself when asked about Wesley Clark's seeming vascillating position on the war. "I thought his statements on the war last week were confusing, but he's just starting his campaign and finding his feet."
Does that mean Lieberman won't attack the general in Thursday's debate? Lieberman said he looked forward to hearing what Clark had to say. "Obviously he deserves an opportunity to clarify exactly what he meant."
Lieberman himself said Monday that "the Pentagon can play a leading role in stemming the flow of manufacturing jobs overseas," the New Haven Register reports. LINK
