Chattanooga Newspaper Endorses Fred!

And the juggernaut rolls on:

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. Former Republican U-S Senator Fred Thompson has not yet said if he is a presidential candidate.

But a Chattanooga editorial page has joined a "draft Fred" movement with an endorsement of the actor and attorney 19 months before the election.

The Chattanooga Free Press published the endorsement editorial today, saying Thompson "has not declined" growing encouragement for him to run.

The editorial cited his proven experience, wisdom and character.
The editorial board at The Chattanooga Free Press, of course, being a Tennessee paper, has had ample time to follow Fred's progress, both in and out of the legislature

The fact that they have made a nearly unheard-of early endorsement speaks volumes as to the confidence that folks familiar with Fred place in him!
