IT WAS NO REAL SURPRISE
I see where Congressman and Republican Policy Council chairman Adam Putnam (R - Bartow) finally came out and officially endorsed former Tennessee senator and soon-to-be candidate Fred Dalton Thompson for the GOP presidential nomination. Also approving of the actor's candidacy is George P. Bush, son of former Florida governor Jeb Bush.
Putnam's announcement was not unexpected, as he had made a couple of positive comments regarding a possible Thompson candidacy a week or two before. In his announcement this week, the Polk County congressman noted that Thompson was a "consistent conservative who has a clear vision for the future of America. He has the ability to unite Republicans and attract the Reagan Democrats."
