Last night on the WIS news broadcast it was reported that Heath Thomspson was being brought on the Rudy for President campaign. That is a smart move. Heath Thompson worked for Jim DeMint and for George W. Bush. I got to know Heath back in the day, so speak when we both worked for Bob Peeler in his Lt. Governor's races.
By hiriing Heath Thomspson, the Rudy folks are a getting a guy that some call ruthless, and that he might be. But, think of him as talented and hard working. It is a step that makes us know Rudy and his folks are taking South Carolina seriously and are hiring a serious old hand to get some things done.
The hiriing of someone like Heath Thompson tells us that the Rudy folks want to win South Carolina, not just show up.
