First Tommy, now Fred…
Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson quit the Republican presidential race on Tuesday, after a string of poor finishes in early primary and caucus states. “Today, I have withdrawn my candidacy for president of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort,” Thompson said in a statement.
…with only Mitt, John, Mike, Rudy, and Ron left to go. All save one will drop out of the race and one very lucky boy—fingers, toes, legs, eyes, nuts crossed—is going to make a concession speech on November 4, 2008.
