RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards and his wife, Elizabeth, have backed out of a joint appearance at Salem State College in Massachusetts.
That is the second joint event the Edwardses have altered since John Edwards admitted to an extramarital affair last month. The two were also scheduled to speak next week at Hofstra University in New York, but she has dropped from that event.
Salem State College spokeswoman Karen Cady said Tuesday that the couple canceled their Sept. 23 appearance, initially billed as a "conversation" with the two.
John Edwards is still scheduled to speak at the University of Illinois in October, and Elizabeth Edwards is scheduled for an event at Cooper University Hospital at the end of September.
