Edwards Says He May Campaign In States That Break Rules

Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards says he won't rule out campaigning in states that break party rules to move their nomination contests earlier.

Several states are threatening to move contests up in an attempt to get attention from presidential candidates.

The Democratic National Committee has asked presidential campaigns NOT to campaign in states that break the rules.

Edwards said Wednesday he's running a national campaign and will
campaign in -- quote -- "states that are participating in the process."

Edwards made the comment on a campaign stop in Las Vegas.

He was visiting the state in part to quiet rumors that he was giving up on winning in Nevada.

Nevada is set to hold the second caucus in the nation -- although the shakeup in the calendar may push it back further in the order.
