    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Looking for good luck 

    U.S. Sen. John Edwards made it through Friday the 13th without any major glitches in his presidential campaign or his appearance on "The Tonight Show."

    Edwards interrupted his campaigning in Wisconsin to fly to Los Angeles for the TV show. He told host Jay Leno that he is "very superstitious" and produced a beaded lucky charm given to him by a little girl in Iowa two months ago. "When she gave me this charm," Edwards said, "some good things started to happen ... the problem is I need three or four more."

    Edwards lags far behind frontrunner U.S. Sen. John Kerry in Wisconsin polls. The Badger State primary is Tuesday.

    Edwards, the most recent of the Democratic presidential wannabes to sit on Leno's couch, made his sprint to the West Coast after a morning campaign stop in Milwaukee, where he met with Tower Automotive workers who expect to lose their jobs as the company shifts work to Mexico.
