Laramie, Wy – The news that presumptive Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry named John Edwards as his running mate went over well with the chair of the Wyoming Democratic Party. Mike Gierau says he's excited about Edwards and that he shares values with the people of the Cowboy State. He cites Edwards' advocacy for cheaper health care and better education.
Edwards was in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination but withdrew in March. Republicans say he is too liberal and inexperienced.
