WEBSTER CITY, Iowa — With a train whistle in the background and the sweet smell of freshly cut grass in the air, John Edwards campaigned this month next to a cornfield and a big sign proclaiming: “This is John Edwards Country.”
“Iowa voters want someone who can beat the Republicans, and that will determine who will win,” Mr. Bailey said. “Edwards’s familiarity will help him in rural Iowa, where he can connect with people and make them feel comfortable, but I think that when he gets to the cities, that could be detrimental. People there are looking for something new, and personal relations don’t mean as much.”
