Early State Activity

  • The Argus Leader is reporting "increased activity" among John Thune fundraisers in New Hampshire as they have been making a number of calls on his behalf. When interviewed, New Hampshire investor and Dartmouth professor Gregory Slayton acknowledged that he has been making calls on Thune's behalf and is in discussion with the Senator about a possible campaign.
  • Thune has also been invited to a conservative lecture series being held in Iowa, according to TPM. Other probable 2012 candidates such as Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Herman Cain have submitted their RSVP, while Sen. Thune has yet to make his. If he agrees to speak, it will only serve as yet another indicator that he is running.

  1. Cool post, Clark.

    So exciting to be on the cutting edge with you, in terms of our candidate!!!

    The Iowa news story is interesting, in terms of Willard Mitt Romney, whose LDS background will not doubt be an issue, as well as in South Carolina and other Southern states (with Evangelicals and Southern Baptists)

    You know Romney engineered the ouster of Chairman Steele, to get either Anuzis or the current fellow in power....Steele, had many strikes, being a Roman Catholic, anti-Mitt and the only one that was not going to bow down to the corporate wing & the thugs in Salt Lake.
