Fred Thompson’s Wife Wants Him Out of The House and Tancredo Enjoys Spaghetti

Fred Thompson gets a big endorsement. According to Bob Novak, Thompson’s wife is encouraging his to run. He seems to be interested, but said he will wait to announce.
Tom Tancredo was at the Johnson County Republicans’ Fourth Annual Spaghetti Dinner on Friday, and told the crowd of about 100 that he encourages an English only law, and protecting out borders. He also said immigrants should be encouraged to assimilate, to “cut ties that bond you to your country politically and otherwise.” allowing immigrants “to connect with America,” Tancredo said. This will help America unite so that it will be stronger for the war on terror and the war in Iraq.
Mike Huckabee has been in Iowa lately telling all that will listen that he is the real conservative out there, and that is why he will win. “If people of genuine conservative convictions don’t support a conservative with convictions, then quite frankly I’m not sure what the point would be to be in politics,” Huckabee said in an interview. Later on in Sioux City he told a crowd, “There are two things this country needs in a leader: consistency and authenticity” Huckabee said, “I’ve been singing the same song I’ve been singing my whole life, and that won’t change.” Huckabee’s conservative values have held strong his whole political career. He passed 90 tax cuts while he was governor of Arkansas. He touched on several topics including immigration saying this, “I get on my knees and thank God every day that I live in country people want to break into, not break out of. But if people want to come here, they need to play by our rules.” It’s still early, and the front runners haven’t released all their skeletons from the closet yet, so maybe players like Huckabee and Brownback will still have a chance. They still need to raise huge sums of cash though, and name recognition helps the front runners on this part.
A straw poll vote at the Summit County party’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner in downtown Akron, Ohio has Giuliani the winner with 31% of the vote. Rounding out the rest of the top five was, John McCain with 26%, Fred Thompson with 12%, Mitt Romney with 8%, and Newt Gingrich with 7%. Two of these guys haven’t even announced yet. It was a small sampling of only 752 total votes.
John McCain is worried he might have started to late, “We started late, our money raising, and we’re going to pay a price for it because we got off to a late start.” McCain said they will not meet their fund raising goals, and will probably raise less than Mitt Romney. Fund raising totals will be released March 31, and then we will all know how strong each of these guys are. Without the funds the candidates becomes less viable.
