Mr. Thompson has Dr. Paul's endorsement. You are welcome to report that in any annoucement you see fit. That is all we do of non-Federal candidates.
["Gene" is Gene Cisewski, a campaign manager for the Ed Thompson campaign. I have confirmed this email with Gene and Ed Thompson.]
Ed Thompson is one of the top pro-liberty candidates in the United States! Ed has twice been elected mayor of Tomah, Wisconsin, both times winning in landslides (2000 & 2008). Ed was also elected to the Tomah City Council in 2005 even though he wasn't running for the office. That's amazing! People wrote Ed in anyway and he got over 90% of the vote! Most famously, Ed raised over $500,000 in 2002 as a third party (Libertarian) candidate for governor of Wisconsin and got over 10% of the vote! That's impressive! And post-election polls showed Ed was more popular than democrat Jim Doyle (who won the election), but people didn't vote for Ed because they didn't think a third party candidate could win. Ed's campaign manager from 2002 now works as a legislative staffer for Ron Paul in Washington.
Now Ed is running for State Senate as a Ron Paul Republican! Ron Paul endorsed Ed Thompson even though the Campaign for Liberty does not normally endorse state candidates. Ed can win. Ed out fund-raised his big-government opponent this year by 2 to 1 and rumor has it, Ed leads in the polls. But big time democrat money is flowing into the district. Ed is bracing for a multi-thousands-of-dollars deluge of bogus, negative ads; so Ed needs YOUR help!

I'm a friend of Ed's from Wisconsin. Ed is an awesome dude and his favorite president is Andrew Jackson. Ed sticks up for state's rights & powers. Ed defends gun rights. Ed is frugal. Ed's uncontested primary is in September and the real deal is in November. Ed faces a vulnerable one-term incumbent. Now is the time to strike while the iron is hot. Ed Thompson rocks!
