A former congressman is expected to try to help a former senator move into the White House.

David Bonior is getting ready to manage a likely presidential run by John Edwards. Since Edwards isn't formally in the race, an adviser says Bonior will work for now with Edwards' political action committee. Should Edwards make a run, Bonior will manage the campaign.

Edwards ran for vice president with John Kerry two years ago. Bonior left Congress in 2002 to make an unsuccessful run for Michigan governor. He has close ties to labor unions, and has been chairing a group that promotes the right to unionize.
