Fred Thompson for President

As I promised those at the CD2 convention.
I will post links to information about the Draft Fred Thompson work.

For now, please use the Request Info link and I will update you as information is made available.

More info will be up later, but wanted to address a question in comments (and that some else mentioned about Fred and McCain-Feingold).

Here is what Fred has said about his support:

Many on the right remain angry he supported the campaign finance

"There are problems with people giving politicians large sums of money and then asking them to pass legislation," Mr. Thompson says. Still, he notes he proposed the amendment to raise the $1,000 per person "hard money" federal contribution limit.

Conceding that McCain-Feingold hasn't worked as intended, and is being riddled with new loopholes, he throws his hands open in exasperation. "I'm not prepared to go there yet, but I wonder if we shouldn't just take off the limits and have full disclosure with harsh penalties for not reporting everything on the Internet immediately."

John McCain's response - We need to pass new laws.
So while I was not happy with his original support, I am happy with his explanation and his stance on it.

I very much agree with you, but I thought it odd that your stated reason for preferring Fred Thompson to John McCain was McCain-Feingold. Fred Thompson voted for that, and still supports it as of last week.

JE - Thompson said a couple of weeks ago that he while he did vote for McCain Feingold, he is against it now because of the implimentation and abuses that have been inherent with MF. The funny thing is, a lot of us conservatives said that was coming when MF was proposed, but did they listen?????
