Republican Third District State Central Committee member Loras Schulte recently endorsed Fred Thompson. The following is the text of Loras’ letter of endorsement, republished with his permission.
To all my friends,
First, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, but for those of you who live in Iowa , I need not tell you that in little more than a handful of days ... we will make a monumental decision at our Caucuses: who leaves Iowa with the chance to gain their Party's nomination for President, and all that means to the future of our Country. Because I sit on RPI's State Central Committee, I have remained neutral in this year's Caucus process, but now I feel compelled to join with the likes of: Cong. Steve King, Bill Sailer andwhat appears to be the entire Iowa leadership team of Tom Tancredo, Representatives KraigPaulsen, Jeff Kaufmann and Sandy Greiner, and scores of other notable Iowa Republicans in endorsing the candidacy of Senator Fred Thompson.
Rather than spelling out the reasons I believe Fred is the right man for the job, I've attached ashort paper from Cong. Steve King that lays out those reasons more eloquently than I can. Please take the time to read the attached document from Steve, but I would like to make one very important strategic point before you do. Senator Fred Thompson does NOT have to finish first at our Caucuses, but he does need to finish Third... and you and I can help make that happen.
Because this is such a special Season I will not be making phone call, because like you I want to spend this time with my family, but if Cong. King's message makes as much sense to you as it does to me, PLEASE email it to your friends and family over this Holiday time.
Urge them to support Senator Fred Thompson on Caucus night.
The attachment from Cong. King appears in its complete form at the bottom of the page until January 4, 2008. The letter was too lengthy for inclusion in the column itself.
