Gotcha there, didn’t I? Well, Gov. Romney did get the endorsement of a Thompson today–but it was Tom Thompson, not that other guy.
Mitt Romney picked up the endorsement from New Hampshire anti-tax advocate Tom Thompson today.
Thompson, the son of conservative former governor Mel Thompson, has been a person that many Republican presidential candidates have wooed by visiting his farm in Orford.
His father was known for his “Ax the Tax” campaign. Most recently Tom has fought against a “view tax” in which some local communities charge more property taxes for properties with a nice view.
