As reported in the Daily Chatanoogan
Rep. Zach Wamp (R-Tenn) said Monday that former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson is very likely to run for president.
The Third District congressman told the Chattanooga Pachyderm Club, "I had a follow-up conversation with Fred Thompson, and there is a real, real strong possibility that he will run."
Rep. Wamp said he has already lined up over 40 members who are interested in the Thompson candidacy.
Rep. Wamp said he and Rep. John Duncan will be co-chairmen of a committee designed to encourage Thompson to seek the Republican presidential nomination.
They will lead the "Draft Fred Thompson 2008" committee.
