Thompson’s Florida Supporters Not Giving Up

January 9th, 2008 by flanews

Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson may not have won in Iowa and New Hampshire, but his supporters aren’t wavering.  Thompson finished third in Iowa last week and sixth in New Hampshire Tuesday night.  But Florida Congressman Adam Putnam remains hopeful that Thompson will be the Republican nominee.

“This is an election season very much in flux,” Rep. Putnam said.  “People wrote John McCain out last summer.  He’s the champion of New Hampshire.  People wrote Fred Thompson out in Iowa.  He placed a strong third.  And so polls are a part of the horse-race coverage of the presidential campaign, but the only one that matters is on January 29th in Florida.”

Thompson is pinning his hopes on southern states like Florida and South Carolina.  With the field so wide open, the January 29th vote in Florida is expected to play a pivotal role in determining both the Democratic and Republican nominees.
