Two more signs of Thompson rising (BILL THEOBALD, 4/12/07, Gannett News Service)

Two surveys released today show actor and former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson's star continuing to rise as a possible Republican presidential candidate.

Thompson finished second in a national poll released today by the Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg. He was favored by 15 percent of those surveyed, behind former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani who was chosen by 29 percent. Arizona Sen. John McCain was third with 12 percent. [...]

Meanwhile, a poll of political insiders by National Journal, a political publication, found that Thompson was considered by both Democrats and Republicans as the person who "will emerge as a strong contender for president."
