John Edwards to Visit Memphis Next Week

Posted on Tue, Jul 10, 2007 at 4:00 AM

On Monday, Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards announced his Road to One America Tour. Starting Monday, July 16th, he'll be taking a 3-day, 8-state trip, stopping in 12 cities all to raise awareness of people living in poverty.

And, yep, one of those stops is Memphis.

From Edwards' Web site: "With this tour, Edwards hopes to focus attention not just on problems, but also on solutions and all of the good work that is being done across the nation to help lift people out of poverty. By meeting with these Americans and telling their stories to the rest of the nation, the campaign intends to show the diversity of the problem of poverty in America."

Edwards will begin the tour in New Orleans, making his way to Memphis that same day. The tour ends two days later in Prestonburg, Kentucky.
