That’s former candidate Tommy Thompson of course, who did you think I meant?
Via the AP:
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) â€” Tommy Thompson endorsed his one-time GOP presidential rival Rudy Giuliani on Friday, saying the former New York mayor can unite the nation â€” and beat Hillary Rodham Clinton. “I want a candidate who can lead and bring America together,” Thompson said with Giuliani by his side in this early voting state.
“I want a candidate that’s going to be able to stand up and be able to win the Republican primary and take on Hillary Clinton and win,” added Thompson, the first former 2008 Republican candidate to make an endorsement.
Thompson, a former Wisconsin governor, served as secretary of Health and Human Services during President Bush’s first term. In his presidential race, he struggled to raise money and gain support.
Good news for Rudy but it doesn’t mean all that much.
