Fred’s Fund-raising Falloff?

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

In an interview with The Politico, Fred Thompson tries to soften expectations of his fund-raising in the current quarter.

“I imagine we will fall off some in July and August and have a great September,” Thompson said, boasting he “would compare what we’ve been able to do in a few months with what others have done in their first few months, whenever that was.”

He also addressed concerns over staff turmoil and whether he’s waited too long to delare officially that he is running. He called the staff changes “normal organizational developments.”

“We’re doing in a few months what other people have done in a much, much longer period of time,” he said. “It’s just that simple. We don’t get the luxury of making adjustments along the way.”

It’s also unlikely that Thompson will participate in a Sept. 5 presidential forum on Fox News.
