John Edwards to visit Youngstown next Tuesday

YOUNGSTOWN — Presidential hopeful John Edwards will visit Youngstown next Tuesday to talk about "strengthening neighborhoods and cities rising" as part of a three-day, 12-city tour.

Edwards, the 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee and a former U.S. senator, wants to bring attention to the 37 million Americans living in poverty during his "Road to One America" tour.

The tour kicks off Monday in New Orleans and Edwards will travel 1,800 miles over the three days. On Tuesday, he'll make three stops, Cleveland, Youngstown and Pittsburgh, in that order.

Edwards will probably visit the Youngstown Business Incubator on West Federal Street and then deliver a public speech after, said state Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th. Hagan is an Edwards' supporter and is advising the presidential campaign regarding next week's visit. Details should be finalized by Wednesday, according to Edwards' campaign.
