Fred Thompson Is Done

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Fred Thompson, South Carolina

He’s running 3rd in South Carolina today, and this is where he HAD to win. I don’t care what his campaign says below about finishing a strong 2nd. He had to win in order to get any major bump for the next contests. Now his campaign hasn’t explicitly said he’s out, but they’re already making […]
