(Salt Lake City-AP) -- North Carolina Senator John Edwards says he hopes to eventually visit Utah -- as the Democratic presidential nominee.

But for now, he just can't make it to the Beehive state before tomorrow's primary.

Edwards spoke to reporters on a conference call this morning as he left New York City en route to Albany, Georgia.

Edwards says he wants to Utah Democrats to know how important tomorrow's primary is. He says his platform also appeals to the heavily-Republican state because he wants to build a country that works for everybody, and build it on economic fairness.

Massachusetts Senator John Kerry is the Democratic front-runner, but he also has NOT visited the state.

The only Democratic candidate to campaign in the state was Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich.
