Mellencamp Stumps for Edwards

John Mellencamp will perform at a rally for John Edwards on Wednesday, the last day of campaigning before the Iowa caucus.

The campaign, in a press release, said that Edwards and Mellencamp are longtime friends, having each grown up in small towns.

The “This is Our Country” rally on Wednesday night will take place at the Val Air Ballroom in West Des Moines.

Campaigns are deploying big names whenever they can across the state. Martin Sheen will campaign for Bill Richardson Sunday and Monday, and Bill Clinton campaigns in a number of towns for Hillary Clinton tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the Obama campaign is dispatching a number of surrogates today across Iowa, including Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, Obama’s wife Michelle, and Brandon Routh, the star of the latest “Superman” movie.

Update: Due to a bad cold, Sheen was forced to cancel his appearances.
