John Edwards in Bristol today
I got some notices that U.S. Senator, former trial lawyer, and current presidential candidate John Edwards is in downtown Bristol today for some kind of rally in the park down the street by the courthouse, starting in about at 11:30 am. Perhaps this was sent to me because of my membership in the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association. (Unlike ATLA, VTLA does not require as a condition of membership that the applicant is only a plaintiff's lawyer.) The only other Democrat running for president who made an appearance this year in Southwest Virginia was Bob Graham, who since quit the race. North Carolina is not far from here but I doubt that John Edwards is very well-known in this area.
