Conference call on the announcement of the announcement? (MORE: FRED WILL MAKE IT OFFICIAL SEPT. 6TH)

Posted by: ST on August 30, 2007 at 12:02 pm

The Politico’s Jonathan Martin reports that the Thompson team has sent out an email that there will be a conference call today at 4 pm which will “discuss the next steps as we move forward as an organization”:

A Thompson aide confirms that they’ll share the news about the long-awaited formal launch. “By the end of the day, we’ll have more clarity,” the aide said, declining to reveal which day the announcement would take place.

Yeah, we’ll see.

Update: The Politico link above has been updated to include this info:

UPDATE: Still no official confirmation from the campaign, but Thompson sources now confirm that he will announce his candidacy next Thursday, Sept. 6. The launch will include a tour of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida. As expected, Thompson will not appear at the GOP debate in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Sept. 5.

A Thompson campaign official says that they’ll issue a paper statement as to their plans later this afternoon.

    This ought to be fun. :o) I personally am glad he waited. You watch at how fast some of these guys start dropping out once he is in. If he sticks to a Reagan-esque style of campaign he is going to do well. – Lorica
