Tenn Sen & Gov Lamar Alexander canvassing for Fred Thompson

Good to see the top pols telling folks to keep their powder dry until Fred is in. Shame ours out here in Colorado are trying to sell out way too early and to Giuliani and Romney. Bleh.

Republican Senator Lamar Alexander is calling around to former senior staffers of his presidential campaigns in New Hampshire, telling them they should get to know fellow Tennessean Fred Thompson.

[The Rest of the Story]

Since Thompson, the actor and former senator, said he was thinking about a run for president, national polls have shown him running in second place for the Republican nomination, trailing only former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Two former staffers confirmed to the Globe they have talked to Alexander. Thompson has yet to make any calls to the state, but Alexander is encouraging his former supporters to “keep their powder dry.”
