PALLONE PRAISES KERRY'S SELECTION OF SENATOR EDWARDS AS HIS RUNNING MATE
U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) issued the following statement today praising Senator John F. Kerry for his selection of Senator John Edwards as his running mate.
"For more than two decades, Senator Edwards has been fighting on behalf of the little guy against America's large corporate interests. John Kerry picked the perfect running mate to complete a ticket that brings hope to middle class Americans that their needs will no longer be ignored at the White House.
"Senator Edwards talks movingly and effectively about two Americas. Over the past three years the bridge between them has grown dramatically thanks to failed policies pushed by the Bush administration that benefit only the privileged few. I'm confident the Kerry-Edwards ticket will energize Americans to demand a change of course and support a new vision for America."
