Sympathy Vote?

South Carolina’s “The State” reprints an Edwards campaign press release touting local endorsements for his candidacy. This just seems so manufactured, especially after Edwards’ announcement last week that his push for the White House would continue even though his wife is suffering from a relapse of cancer. I can just about hear the conversation at campaign headquarters. “O.K. guys, you heard the boss, he’s not quitting (yet). Let’s rush out a fact sheet highlighting the support he’s got state-wide. Gotta keep pushing that momentum!”

This would really be news if the state was going for another candidate.
