Edwards is out with a new ad on healthcare.
(CNN) - John Edwards took a familiar element of his stump speech to the Iowa airwaves Friday.
In the ad, titled “Voice”, the former North Carolina senator repeats the story of James Lowe, a man with a cleft palate who “had no voice for 50 years,” because he could not afford to pay for the operation that would allow him to speak, and did not have health insurance.
“This is wrong. It is immoral,” says Edwards in the ad. “When are we going to stop letting drug companies, insurance companies and their lobbyists run this country?”
The campaign began airing a similar spot in New Hampshire earlier this month.
