Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, the 2004 Democratic vice-presidential nominee, is dropping out of the presidential race, the Associated Press has just reported. According to the AP, Edwards has told advisors that he'll make the announcement at 1 p.m. EST today, at a speech in New Orleans that was originally supposed to be about poverty. He has no immediate plans to endorse any candidate, the AP says.
