Edwards Is First Dem to Go on TV in S.C.

On the same day that his campaign started airing a new TV ad in Iowa, John Edwards becomes the first Democratic presidential contender to unveil a TV ad targeting South Carolina primary voters.

And he takes full advantage of his home field advantage.

"America's Jobs and America's Workers" is a 30-second spot, filmed at the Robbins, S.C., mill where Edwards and his father once worked.

"For too many, it's just about profits and greed. They're wrong. It's about the dignity of the job, and doing what's right for America's workers," Edwards says.

As for the rest of the '08 field, fellow Democrat Barack Obama has aired radio ads targeting African American voters in the state, but no TV spots.

On the GOP side, Mitt Romney has aired several TV ads in South Carolina, while Rudy Giuliani's campaign has run several radio spots.

We don't need another president that puts wealth over work.

I like it! Short & Sweet and to the point.
