I know this is not a national political blog… but there have been interesting developments on the Republican side.
- Consider that former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson, who is not running officially, is polling in third place behind Giuliani and McCain, well ahead of Romney.
- Newt Gingrich, who has been practically endorsed by Rev. Jams Dobson (of focus on the family) and was praised by Rev. Jerry Fallwell, is giving the commencement address at Liberty University.
With other conservatives like Sam Brownback polling below the margins of error in public polls, the race for the conservative banner is WIDE open… and will be until either Thompson or Gingrich (or both) jump in officially.
Oh, and tomorrow marks the end of the first major quarter of fundraising for presidential candidates. The reports aren’t due to the Federal Elections Commission until April 15th, but expect the media to work on getting number from the campaigns as early as next week.
