Edwards in FL



We caught John Edwards in Miami last night, where his $15-a-head fundraiser/rally drew nearly 300 people. By comparison Barack Obama's $25-a-head fundraiser in Tampa earlier this year drew about 2,000.

Florida could be a challenge against better-funded rivals, but while blowing past reporters on his way out last night Edwards implied potential DNC penalties would not keep him from campaigning in Florida : "I'm going to compete everywhere in America."

Edwards will be in Tampa Bay June 29 for a fundraiser hosted by trial lawyers Steve Yerrid and Jim Wilkes.
