Tommy Thompson to Make Major Announcement about the Future of Presidential Campaign

That was the headline at the top of the email I received from Tommy Thompson’s campaign. Did it mean he was dropping out like a rival campaign had been floating all this week? Nope. Thompson later announced he was taking part in the Iowa Straw Poll. He did give one of the most candid candidate comments about the event. He said if he doesn’t finish first or second, he would have to think about the future of his presidential campaign. Thompson didn’t raise much money in the first fundraising quarter, but he said a first or second place finish in the Straw Poll would do a lot in helping to bring in money.
