No Thompson 'Announcement' Until 2012

October 18, 2011

Don't look for an official Senate campaign announcement from former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson any time this year: the Republican said on Monday that his announcement will come next spring.

"I'm waiting for my big announcement in the spring, but I am definitely going to be running," Thompson said at a Wispolitics.com luncheon on Monday. WISN Milwaukee has the full story here.

He may not be officially announcing until next year, but Thompson's already filed with the Federal Election Commission, is working with consultants and is engaging in many other activities associated with running a campaign. His allies have already engaged with opponents and Thompson has even unveiled a campaign logo. So in most of the ways that matter, he's in.

"Today, I filed my statement of candidacy for the office of United States Senate," Thompson said in an email to supporters on Oct. 4. On Sept. 19, Thompson said on WTMJ Radio: "I've filed my corporation documents today, which allows me now to build my organization, raise money so I can go out there and tell the story."
