Elizabeth Edwards coming to Carson City, Elko
Elizabeth Edwards, the wife of vice presidential candidate John Edwards, will be making stops in Carson City and Elko on Sunday to discuss the upcoming election with Nevada families.
The town hall discussions will focus on choices facing American families this November.
Sean Smith, Nevada communications director for Kerry-Edwards 2004, said Edwards will be taking questions on a broad range of subjects.
“Whatever the community wants to talk about,” he said. “Health care, the war on terror, Yucca Mountain.”
Tickets to see Edwards may be picked up at local Democratic headquarters in Reno, Carson City and Elko.
Turnout to see Edwards is expected to be heavy. Corrine Cole, scheduler at Democratic headquarters in Carson City, said, “We may even have to move the event to a bigger location.”
The event is free to the public, but you must have a ticket to get in.
