“RUN FRED RUN” Texas Statewide Elected Officials Urge Fred Thompson to Enter Presidential Race

Today, two prominent Texas statewide elected officials announced their support of the growing national movement to encourage former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN) to seek the Republican nomination for president.

While we agree there are several good candidates currently in the race, we believe Fred Thompson would add an exciting option for Republican primary voters.

In our opinion, unlike the current front runner, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson is right on virtually all issues important to Republican primary voters.

"We’ve won statewide primaries and general elections in Texas. We know what it takes to win in Texas. Fred Thompson has what it takes", stated Commissioner Patterson, who has a record of winning elections in spite of being dramatically outspent by his opponents.
