The Hunt for Red State November just got more interesting.
Just days after he filed papers to form an exploratory committee, Fred Thompson has already moved to 2nd in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll of GOP candidates, polling at 17%. Rudy Guiliani remains ahead of the pack at 23%, but those are his lowest numbers yet since polling began. Thompson is closer to catching Rudy than any contender has been in 20 consecutive weeks on the Rasmussen polls.
Mitt Romney jumped up to 3rd as John McCain slipped from 2nd to 4th in 2 weeks. Romney is polling 16%, McCain just 14%.
The man isn't even formally running yet, and he's already nipping at Rudy's heels.
Fred Thompson has an official website now, where you can contribute to his campaign.
