Kerry – Edwards
A New Team for a New America

July 06, 2004

For Immediate Release
Pittsburgh, PA

Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry announced today that he has chosen North Carolina Senator John Edwards to join his campaign to build a stronger America. Experienced, energetic leaders who will restore hope here at home and respect around the world, the Kerry-Edwards ticket represents a new team for a new America.

“John Edwards speaks the heart of America – hope and optimism,” Kerry said. “He is a lifelong champion for America’s families who has shown courage and conviction standing up for America’s values. In the Senate, he has a record of reaching across Party lines and working to reform our intelligence, to combat bioterrorism and keep our military strong. Together, we will campaign tirelessly across the country – fighting to build an America that is stronger at home and respected in the world.”

Edwards will be a passionate advocate for the Kerry agenda of an America that is stronger at home and respected abroad. He has spent his lifetime – in and out of government - fighting for the same values and priorities as Kerry. Together, Kerry and Edwards will take this vision to Americans across the country, fighting for good paying jobs, affordable health care, energy independence, a strong military and a respected America that leads strong alliances around the world.

Kerry announced his choice this morning in an email to the heart and soul of his campaign – the more than one million grassroots supporters at johnkerry.com.

“In the next 120 days and in the administration that follows, John Edwards and I will be fighting for the America we love,” Kerry said. “We'll be fighting to give the middle class a voice by providing good paying jobs and affordable health care. We'll be fighting to make America energy independent. We'll be fighting to build a strong military and lead strong alliances, so young Americans are never put in harm’s way because we insisted on going it alone. “
