GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Democrats John Kerry and John Edwards are releasing a book-length blueprint for their White House campaign, including plans to fight terrorism and improve homeland security as officials warn of an attack against major financial institutions.
Kerry arranged a stop at the Grand Rapids Fire Department on Monday to discuss the book, which will be available on his campaign Web site and distributed to supporters. Edwards planned his own event in Orlando, Fla., as the candidates went their separate ways on the two-week, coast-to-coast tour through battleground states.
Federal officials briefed Kerry by telephone late Sunday about terror threats against major financial institutions in New York, New Jersey and Washington, D.C., as his bus tour idled at a Michigan campaign stop. He declined to comment afterward.
