Now begins the countdown to the Huckabee drop. Yeah, it as fun, it was cute, kind of like letting the slow kid play a pick up game for a little while to make him feel good, but it is time to get serious. Hopefully Huckabee will drop out by week’s end and then Rudy after Florida.
Romney statement on Thompson drop out:
"Throughout this campaign, Fred Thompson brought a laudable focus to the challenges confronting our country and the solutions necessary to meet them. He stood for strong conservative ideas and believed strongly in the need to keep our conservative coalition together.
Ann and I would like to extend our best wishes to Fred, Jeri and their family and congratulate them on their efforts during this campaign."
