Candidate Challenge: Fred Thompson
Thursday, November 1st, 2007
Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson is officially the first candidate to turn down an opportunity to discuss the state of America’s voting system and respond to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge. Why? How? Where and when did he turn us down?
I spoke with both his Senior Advisor, Rich Galen, and his midwest political director, Andrew Dorr at the Iowa GOP’s Reagan Dinner this Saturday in Des Moines. Neither passed along my request to Senator Thompson, and the Senator himself turned down two opportunities to talk with me. Watch the video for the play-by-play.
Senator Thompson is, of course, still welcome and encouraged to submit a response to the Candidate Challenge. All he has to do is follow the instructions here.
