Well, That Didn't Take Long -- Tommy Thompson to Enter Race
In this week's Phoenix column
, the Tote Board predicted that another GOP candidate would enter the race. In between the time we filed and the time the paper was published, our prediction came true. Admittedly, we didn't think it would be Tommy Thompson, but Thompson has indicated he plans to enter the race
and go for broke by trying to win Iowa.
Thompson is from a neighboring state (Wisconsin) -- though he's not the conservative savior that party activists are seeking. His candidacy is not good news for Romney in Iowa, since the two have somewhat similar profiles as governors.
Since GOP conservatives are likely to remain unhappy, expect another entry into that field in the next few months.
