Fred Thompson: I'm Skipping New Hampshire
Talking Points Memo:
Fred Thompson has performed dismally in New Hampshire polls, and he clearly knows it -- he says he's skipping the state. Thompson admitted today on MSNBC: "We're not competitive in New Hampshire. And we won't be campaigning there other than to go in for the debates which are tomorrow night and sunday night."
Instead, his campaign sent out a fundraising e-mail today asking for help so that they could compete in South Carolina, where the Republicans will vote on January 19.
