Democrat John Edwards' presidential campaign plans to beef up the size of its Nevada staff by next month.
Officials say the campaign plans to add about two dozen new staffers by November 1st. That would tripling the former vice presidential nominee's Nevada operation.
Edwards also plans to open two new offices in November, doubling its total.
Even with the additions, the size of Edwards' operation isn't expected to match that of his top rivals, Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.
Edwards' announcement comes two months after the Democrat pulled
much of his field staff out of the early caucus state to shift tight resources to Iowa.
Edwards has since decided to participate in the public financing system.
That means he'll receive the public funding that will allow him to rebuild its Nevada staff beyond levels originally planned.
