An Edwards Stat

On a conference call held to talk about Iowa and the new Bruce Braley endorsement of John Edwards, deputy campaign manager Jonathan Prince said that the Edwards campaign has trained at least two precinct captains in more than 87 percent of caucus precincts statewide.

Generally, campaigns don't release this kind of info, but in Edwards's case, it reinforces the case made by rival campaigns privately: if the caucuses were held tonight, based on organization alone, Edwards would probably win.

Edwards launched a new ad today focusing on universal health insurance for children. It does not mention his opponents by name.
