    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    What's that thing on your lip? 

    It was first thing in the morning, after all, but the crowd at U.S. Sen. John Edwards' campaign stop in Racine Thursday was more sedate than most of those during his marathon, four-city flyaround on Wednesday.

    Several seats remained empty, compared to standing room-only crowds the day before. Edwards was splitting his day between Wisconsin, in anticipation of Tuesday's primary, and an afternoon sprint to California to greet voters and raise money.

    Edwards has won only 1 of the 14 primaries and caucuses so far and badly needs an impressive finish in Wisconsin.

    He didn't get much help from his appearance on "Imus in the Morning." Host Don Imus said that, while he realized the candidates had to contend with weighty issues, he had a more pressing question: "What's that thing on your lip?" he asked, referring to the bump-like blemish on Edwards' upper lip.
