Sources Claim: Fred Thompson taking steps for a presidential run. Official announcement could come in July.


According to sources close to CNN, Fred Thompson, former Senator from Tennessee and actor, who played the District Attorney on TV's Law and Order, is taking the first steps in setting up a run for the presidency. Thompson is said to be "testing the waters" and will hire staff members and begin raising money as early as Friday.

Sources also claim that if things go well, he will officially announce his run the first week of July.

CNN has more of the story here.

Thompson has created quite a buzz amongst the conservative base of the party, who has been pressuring him to run for months now. He is third in most republican primary polls and is not even a candidate yet.

I really like Fred Thompson, and would like to see him run. We desperately need some "law and order" in this country.
