PRESS RELEASE from Biden for President


Web & Newspaper Advertisements Tout Joe Is Right

Des Moines, IA (November 26, 2007) – The Biden for President Campaign today continued its ‘Joe is Right’ ad campaign with full page ads in Iowa’s seven largest newspapers. The ‘Joe is Right’ campaign was launched earlier this month with a web video that takes a look at the frequent occasions when Sen. Biden’s rivals have praised him in debates.  Today, the Des Moines Register, Cedar Rapids Gazette, Davenport Quad City Times, Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier, Sioux City Journal, Dubuque Telegraph Herald, and Burlington Hawkeye all carried the ‘Joe is Right’ print ad, which further underscores an emerging consensus on the campaign trail: Joe Biden is the leading voice on foreign policy and national security issues in the race for the Democratic nomination.

Iowans have taken note of this trend. Over the weekend, the Cedar Rapids Gazette published an article entitled, Biden emerges as Dems' foreign policy expert, which said: “Biden's Iowa supporters point to recent debates where other Democrats defer to his foreign policy stances — especially his plan to bring a political solution in Iraq — as evidence he is emerging as the right choice at this volatile juncture in U.S. and world history.”

“Joe is right,” said Biden for President Campaign Manager Luis Navarro, “and it would seem that his democratic rivals—by the virtue of their own words—agree. I am confident that Iowans will choose proven leadership and experience and support Sen. Biden on caucus night.”
