I don’t have any special information, only what I have read on other sites, but there are three important facts that seem to point very strongly to Fred Thompson’s exit from the race:
1) Fred Thompson’s mother’s condition is not good, and seemingly getting worse. This isn’t a political issue, but I think we have to accept the possibilities and their consequences.
2) According to Fox News, Fred’s staff has said that he “has no plans” to attend the upcoming debate in FL – although, apparently, he has not officially pulled out of the debate.
3) According to some people – and I have no way to confirm this, but Fred has pulled some fundraising links on his website, or something to that degree. Like I said, I can’t confirm it, but it deserves a mention.
