Support for Fred Thompson continues to grow this week, and some old friends of his have started touting the former Senator from TN as their choice for the Presidential nomination for the 08 election.

Yesterday, former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist jumped on the Thompson bandwagon, and is hopeful that Fred will indeed join the race. Frist wrote on his blog that, “Fred understands real people and they understand him. He understands the legislative process and has a strong bipartisan appeal, though he is a real conservative. “I believe Fred Thompson should run for president.”
Thompson has already said that he is considering a run.

Since I’m on the subject…..

U.S. Rep. John J. Duncan Jr., R-Knoxville, who endorsed Mitt Romney for President a couple of months back, says he will jump aboard the Fred Thompson Express if the former Senator from Tennessee does decide to join the race.

According to an article posted at KnoxNews.com, Duncan said, “If Fred Thompson gets in there, then I definitely would support him,” Duncan, a Republican, said in an interview. “He’s been a long-time friend. I know him a whole lot better than I know Gov. Romney.”

There is hope for us yet.
