Thompson speaking at GOP Gala in VA Saturday

Building support in VA and the Beltway. I know some fred-bloggers that are going to this, and I'll link to their account when they post it.

Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson will be coming to Virginia as part of an effort to drum up support among conservative voters.

The "Law & Order" star, who is said to be "testing the waters" for a 2008 presidential run, will be the keynote speaker at the Republican Party of Virginia's 2007 Commonwealth Gala Saturday in Richmond.

His attendance will be the latest high-profile appearance orchestrated by Ed Gillespie, state party chairman and former Republican National Committee chairman who worked with Mr. Thompson in 2005 on the confirmation of Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.

A Thompson candidacy is intriguing to Virginia voters looking for a conservative like Ronald Reagan, said state Delegate L. Scott Lingamfelter, Prince William Republican.
