Fred Thompson to get “Right to Life” backing

According to reports, the National Right to Life Committee is going to endorse Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson tomorrow.  Thompson just called into the Radio Iowa newsroom and I asked him about it — listen here (runs just over a minute).

Thompson said he didn’t "want to be presumptuous.  That’s their endorsement to make.and if they’ve not made an endorsement, I don’t want to prejudge that.  I would say I would certainly welcome it.  I have been a supporter of pro-life causes.  I have had a 100 percent pro-life voting record when I was in the senate on all kinds of different issues that would come before the United States Congress and so I can understand why they would endorse me.  They’ve supported me in times past and I would appreciate it.

"In terms of signals, I just think that it would mean that those who look at these matters the most and consider them the most carefully know my record and know me and would be supportive of me."
