Alex notices that Fred Thompson pulled in $400K in one night, nearly beating the entire 1Q haul for Obama or Romney in the state of Georgia.
I recently had a good friend ask if Thompson had the fundraising power of Romney or Rudy. My answer was “yes” and I don’t see anything (at least in the red states) that will unhook that.
Additionally, behind the scenes there is significant positioning by the Republican power players at the national level (read: $$) to bolster Fred when he’s officially ‘in’. Tonight makes it look like the same support may easily exist within Georgia.
