RCP: Rep Wamp says "Fred's Going For It"

Hoping Congressman Wamp (R-TN) is right...

Rep. Zach Wamp (R-Tenn.), described by ABC News as "Fred Thompson's top cheerleader on Capitol Hill," after Thompson's visit with GOP lawmakers today said that Thompson's entry into the race is "a matter of when -- not if."

Among the many questions that Thompson faced from the members of Congress he met with were ones about his divorce and his faith. Wamp told ABC News that Thompson said that he is in "excellent standing with everyone important in his life, including his first wife . . . and the man upstairs."

Multiple House Republicans who attended the hour-long Q&A session with Thompson gushed over him as someone who "checks all the boxes" in a way that the current crop of leading Republican contenders do not.
