My Man Fred Drops Out of the Race

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) – Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson quit the Republican presidential race on Tuesday, after a string of poor finishes in early primary and caucus states.

“Today, I have withdrawn my candidacy for president of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort,” Thompson said in a statement.

Thompson’s fate was sealed last Saturday in the South Carolina primary, when he finished third in a state that he had said he needed to win.

I guess that makes me an orphan. I’m thinking Romney is gonna be Plan B.

God Bless you Fred Thompson. Thank You for running, and your mother is in my prayers.
