John Edward's campaign headquarters in Chapel Hill have been evacuated because of a suspicious package.

more as I can find it.


The campaign office of presidential candidate John Edwards was evacuated this morning because of a suspicious package.

Jonathan Prince, deputy campaign manager, said staffers evacuated the office, in Southern Village in Chapel Hill, on the advice of authorities "and will continue to take every possible precaution."


The is the third such episode this year involving the Edwards campaign.

In May, the U.S. post office on Franklin Street was evacuated after an employee found a letter to the campaign containing a powdery substance.

In March, the campaign headquarters was evacuated after a staff opened an envelope containing white powder.

Both letters tested negative for harmful agents.

Per a comment and a quick search, the office is open and the incident is being investigated.
