UPDATED 4/14 The "press conference" was interrupted due to a hostage situation where an opponent of Dent's took a young girl hostage. Dent traded himself for the girl, but was rescued right before the broadcast ended. All in all, it made Dent into a very heroic figure, and a virtual shoe in to win the District Attorney's race.

Everyone who knows Harvey Dent knows that the vicious smears by a mysterious group calling itself "Concerned Citizens for a Better Gotham" are not true. Harvey Dent is innocent of these charges, and the truth will triumph.
Harvey Dent believes that the movement to take back Gotham is bigger than one person. It's never been about Harvey Dent. It's about our hopes for our city. It's about you.
Harvey Dent has always said that if he becomes a distraction from the bigger issues of the movement to fight crime and corruption, he'll make the best decision for the movement itself.
We've done a lot in the last few months. We've shown the city that we will not stop fighting against the dark forces that have Gotham in their grasp. We showed everyone that we do have power. That there is hope for Gotham City.
The I Believe in Harvey Dent campaign will be holding a press conference today at 3:00 pm (EDT). The audio will be streaming live at www.ibelieveinharveydent.com. Whatever Harvey Dent says, I know one thing - I'm proud of him. And I'm proud of all of you.
I still believe in Harvey Dent. Do you?
Media Manager, Dent for DA
