Treasurer Sass endorses Edwards campaign



State Treasurer Dawn Marie Sass broke the mold and endorsed the candidacy of former U.S. Sen. John Edwards, D-South Carolina, for president.

The speakers thus far have shied away from giving an endorsement for 2008 during the convention thus far, but Sass took the opportunity to give her full-throated support for Edwards.

"I believe he can most effectively convey the message to America" and better the country, Sass said.

Despite the endorsement, Sass told the party faithful they should support whomever they believe is the best candidate and "work as hard as they can."

Sass also said Wisconsin may be losing its "battle ground" state status.

"And when we control all of the offices ... and both houses ... that's when the Republican National Committee will move the tally sheet from a battle ground state to a safe Democratic state," Sass said.
