John Edwards Comes To Macon

 

 

 

 

By Amanda Smith

 

 

Presidential hopeful John Edwards will be making a visit to Macon on Saturday, April 14, 2007 from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Waldo Floyd III at 127 Heritage Court, Macon, Georgia.

A trial lawyer before he entered the political arena, Edwards was the Democratic nominee for Vice President in 2004, running mate to Senator John Kerry.  He only served one term as Senator for his home state of North Carolina from 1999-2005.

On December 28, 2006, Edwards announced his candidacy for the 2008 presidential election.  Recent polls show him placing third behind Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Near the end of Edwards’ 2004 presidential campaign, his wife, Elisabeth was diagnosed with invasive ductal cancer, the most common breast cancer.  After several months of chemotherapy and radiation, the Edwards announced that she had recovered.  However, on March 22, 2007, because of media speculation that her cancer had returned and that Edwards would be withdrawing from the race, the couple appeared on national television to clear up these rumors.  Side by side, the Edwards announced that Elisabeth has stage IV breast cancer, but that the “campaign goes on strongly.” 

Some of Edwards’ supporters include:

  • Brian Adams - Jim Butler
  • Melanie and Chuck Byrd - Marie and Roy Barnes
  • Manley Brown – Marsha and John Christy
  • Lizzie and Chris Clark - Teresa and Mike Cranford
  • Laurie Anne White and Charles Engelke
  • Kathy and Waldo Floyd – Mitzi and Jarome Gautreaux
  • Nick Giles – Carolyn and Hardy Gregory – Duke Groover
  • Lisa and Wendell Horne – Steve  Leeds
  • Preyesh Maniklal – Debbie and Michael Moore
  • Amy and Daryl Morton – Bright and William Nolan
  • Carol and DuBose Porter – Kim and Carl Reynolds
  • G. Scott Thompson – Joel Wooten
