A Year in Iowa: Thompson: Town to Town, Week After Week

Excerpted from this post at A Year in Iowa

They aren't talking about Tommy Thompson on the Sunday morning news shows, or on O'Reilly, Olbermann or Matthews. They aren't writing about him in Newsweek, Time, or In Touch. His comments don't instantly show up on Drudge or the Huffington Post. When it comes to the Republican candidates for president, it's all Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney. But as many people in Iowa, and maybe more, are at least as vaguely aware of former Wisconsin governor Thompson as former Massachusetts governor Romney. Tommy's from a border state, after all. And that neighbor has logged a lot more time trying to woo support in next January's Iowa caucuses than Romney. Or Giuliani. Or McCain. Or the three of them combined.
