Tommy Thompson shows interest in 2008 run for the White House
Friday, November 17, 2006
Ex-Wisconsin Governor has decided to launch an exploratory committee early next year to explore a possible 2008 White House bid. Thompson is one of three large Republican candidates to form exploratory committees in the past week. Senator ( -Arizona) and Former New York Mayor both have formed committees; Giuliani's has already begun work and McCain's will begin work after the Christmas holiday.
"I will be forming an exploratory committee for president after the first of the year, and then I will be spending time in Iowa and other states across the country," Thompson said in an interview. Thompson went on to say that his experience as a former Wisconsin governor and as health secretary during President George W. Bush's first presidential term would be valuable assets in what is becoming more crowded and is expected to be quite competitive.
