Denver, CO (APE) – One week before the nation’s kickoff of the Super Tuesday primaries, the Barack Obama campaign announced that it would be promoting the nomination of former competitor North Carolina Senator John Edwards as his vice presidential running mate. This would be Edwards’ second attempt at the office of Vice President and comes on the same day that he announced his withdrawal from the Democratic presidential contest. Edwards faced a slew of disappointing third-place finishes in the initial primaries, including one in his birth state of South Carolina.
Unveiling their new combined logo, the Obama Edwards ’08 campaign pledged to redouble their commitment to promoting change for America.
“I’m excited about the prospects of this ticket,” stated Obama. “We will be a force to be reckoned with in November. The change we offer America is more than a $600 rebate, and it will appeal to Republicans and Democrats alike.”
“Let me be the first to say that race is now officially an issue,” stated Edwards, “and it’s a race against time for America. The race is on and we won’t stop even after November.”
