So When Will Thompson Announce?

National Review reports that, contrary to the Politico’s report, Fred Thompson will not “enter the presidential race over the Fourth of July holiday.”

National Review’s Jim Geraghty talked to someone inside Thompson’s “inner circle”:

    “There will be no July 4 announcement… There was some discussion of a June 4 beginning of fundraising; that’s the date checks will be collected. I suspect that’s where there was some confusion.”

    The forthcoming announcement will be that Thompson is “testing the waters.” While Thompson is in that not-quite-announced-candidate stage, he will be able to complete previously committed paid appearances and speeches and continue work his work on ABC radio and filling in for Paul Harvey. He is not lining up additional paid speeches or appearances.

    My gut instinct after talking with TA3 is that there will be an announcement in July, but not July 4.

Based on this capture from Michelle Malkin, it looks like Geraghty originally wrote, “Shockingly, the Politico got it wrong again” but has changed that to “The Politico got it wrong, it appears.”
