Thompson said Wednesday his campaign is on track.
“These are the kinds of things you do as you go along,” Thompson told reporters at Hobby Airport in Houston. “You make adjustments as you go along. We’re on track in that regard.”
Veteran GOP campaign adviser Tom Collamore resigned from his position at Friends of Fred Thompson on Tuesday. Thompson’s campaign announced that Spencer Abraham, former U.S. Energy Secretary and Michigan GOP senator, would come aboard as a top adviser, along with veteran Florida GOP strategist Randy Enright.
Thompson, clutching a state-appropriate cowboy hat as he addressed a group of supporters in the Lone Star State, said a decision to run would be made and announced “in the not-so-distant future.”
“It’s a matter of raising some money, and it’s a matter of getting your organization and your people together,” he said.
