43. Edwards because he stayed within the Campaign finance system
Edited on Thu Jan-22-04 10:47 PM by tryanhas
And look how much he has moved up while doing it, 2nd in Iowa.

That proves how strong of a candidate he is, and how deserving of your $200 donation.

John Kerry had to outspend John Edwards by a ratio of 4 TO 1 in Iowa just to earn 2 more delegates from the state than Edwards did. If Kerry would have spent the same amount that Edwards did and stayed within the spending limits, then Edwards probably would have won the state.

Edwards tries to stand up for what he believes in and he believes in reforming the way campaigns are financed.

I think that you should reward his dedication to this issue and his strong showing in Iowa while staying within it, with your $200 donation.
