As many blogs have reported already, Attorney General Bob McDonnell and former Senator and Governor George Allen have both endorsed Fred Thompson and will apparently co-chair his campaign in Virginia.
Virginians for Fred Thompson will have a live blog with McDonnell and Allen today at 12:15.
Allen, despite his loss last year to Jim Webb, still carries some weight and support amongst Virginia conservatives. Bob McDonnell is a pretty popular figure in Virginia and is a top candidate for Governor in 2009.
Many people believe that the support of McDonnell and especially Allen is Thompson's way of courting social conservatives in Virginia, especially with Thompson's room-temperature relationship with social conservatives right now. Time will tell if this will help Thompson in the long run.
