Ed Thompson for Congress?!?

Wow… a very big story over on Hammer of Truth right now. It appears that Ed Thompson is considering a run for Congress in Wisconsin’s third Congressional District.

HoT has the story:

For those of you who don’t recall, Thompson ran for governor of Wisconsin in 2002 and won nearly 11% of the vote as a Libertarian. He was the mayor of Tomah, Wisconsin at the time — a seat he won with 58% of the vote. Thompson currently serves on the Tomah City Council as a result of a race in which he wasn’t even a candidate. As I recall the story, Ed’s townspeople ran a write-in campaign for him (without his knowledge or approval) for the city council seat. The other candidate only got 3 votes — his own, Ed Thompson’s and his girlfriend’s. Thompson runs Mr. Ed’s Tee-Pee restaurant, is the brother of former HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson and is the subject of the (really good — I’ve seen it) documentary titled A Remarkable Man.

An elected local official, successful statewide candidate, and a famous name. You don’t often get a package like that. I’m not really in a position to be donating money to political candidates… though I really wish that I was. But for this race, if Thompson runs, I can tell you that I’ll be writing some kind of check… even if it’s just a few dollars.

    I contributed to Ed Thompson when he was running for Governor and would help out again for a Congressional race. He is a great candidate for the Libertarian Party.
