Tommy Thompson, onetime presidential candidate himself, now running for the Republican nomination for US Senate, in an interview with the Waukesha Freeman:
FREEMAN: You haven’t endorsed yet in this presidential race?
FREEMAN: Do you intend to?
THOMPSON: Nobody’s asked me to.
Is it because Tommy himself is suspect as a less-than-100% conservative, and his endorsement might cause problems for the receipent? Or has he just become irrelevant? The interview continues:
FREEMAN: Do you have a preference?
THOMPSON: I think that Romney’s the strongest candidate to win the State of Wisconsin.
FREEMAN: And to beat Obama nationally?
So there you have it, Mitt. Use it if you dare.
