Will discuss his plans to make sure all Americans have a voice in Washington, not just the special interests

Des Moines, Iowa – On, Thursday, December 20th, 2007, Senator John Edwards will kick off a three-day “Fighting for America’s Voice” tour across Iowa to discuss his plans to stand up for those who don’t have a voice in Washington. Edwards has spent his life speaking out on behalf of those who don’t have a voice, and as President he will fight to make sure that the American people are heard in Washington, not the special interests.

During the tour, Edwards will be joined by numerous people whose voices he has fought to make sure are heard – James Lowe, who went 50 years without a voice because he didn’t have health care; Sandy and David Lakey, and their daughter Valerie, whom Edwards represented as a lawyer after Valerie was injured by a swimming pool drain that the company knew was dangerous; and Doug Bishop, who worked at the Maytag plant in Newton until Maytag decided to cut costs by cutting Bishop’s job.

On his three-day trip, Edwards will discuss how we can make sure every voice is heard in Washington. On Thursday, he will outline his plans to revitalize rural communities. On Friday, Edwards will deliver a speech in West Des Moines at the Des Moines Area Community College West Campus about how we can help our children and make sure they have the opportunity to realize the American Dream. On Saturday, Edwards will discuss how we can make sure Americans can work at a good-paying jobs and that our economy works for hard-working families, not just the special interests.
