Oh Happy Day!!! We might actually get an electable Conservative.

 Those of you who visit regularly know that we at “HouseofChin” having been pulling hard for a Thompson run.  You may recall our interview from a few weeks ago with former staffer Kelvin Moxley.  Rest assured, we have been a communication with folks close to Thompson and his organization.  We’ll do the best we can to keep you updated and get insight from ‘those in the know’.

WASHINGTON —  It seems all but certain that former senator and “Law & Order” TV star Fred Thompson will formally announce his campaign for president sometime after July 4.

Sources tell FOX News that the former Tennessee senator will wait until after Independence Day to announce in hopes of finding a more interested public, and the announcement could come as soon as July 5. Although plans have not yet been solidified.

And The Politico reported Wednesday that Thompson told a group of financial backers on Tuesday that he is going to run and had already raised millions of dollars. Thompson is encouraging more support as he readies his campaign in the crowded field of Republican candidates.

The Politico also reports that a number of staffers to former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush are expected to join Thompson’s campaign.

Polls show that Republicans have not been satisfied with the current field of candidates. And even as an unofficial candidate, Thompson has pulled closely with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who is neck-and-neck with Arizona Sen. John McCain. For now, they are trailing former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

  1. I’m still pulling for Mike Huckabee.

    Check out Christopher Ruddy

  2. Huckabee has no chance. Sorry! Seems like a good guy. But he just isn’t going to get it done.

  3. Agreed- Huckabee hasn’t a chance in hell. Thompson on the other hand…White House here we come! I am interested, since you (the blog’s author) seem connected to FDT in various ways, in seeing if you could send me the information needed to contact peopl involved with his campaign who I coukd contact about volunteering. Thank you so much! Go Fred!
