Candidate To Visit The Mountains

A democratic candidate for president will be in the mountains later this week, but it's the topic of john edwards' visit that already has some buzzing.
Prestonsburg is one of the stops on the Edwards tour ... and some people there are already thinking about what it means for the region.
Edwards kicked off his 3 day ... 8 state ... poverty tour today.
Officials say the goal is to highlight the 37 million americans living in poverty.

"I think he wants to reach out to the people, talk to the people, explain to the people that he has this vision that he wants to help those that are less fortunate," says Floyd County Judge Executive R.D. "Doc" Marshall.

Edwards will make stops in Wise, Virginia, Whitesburg and Prestonsburg on Wednesday
