IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T HEARD...OR CARED...THERE'S ONE LESS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE
Former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson officially ended his Republican presidential campaign Sunday after finishing a distant sixth in the Ames, Iowa straw poll. He had said that it would take a first or second place finish in the event Saturday for him to remain as a candidate.
He was generally an unknown entity to most people, focusing his campaign on improving health care and welfare in America. Thompson said he would return to the private sector and do some non-profit work.
One thing Thompson can say about his finish in the Ames straw poll: He still came out ahead of John McCain.
