While this Thursday is the first Republican primary debate and will be the big test for many Republican candidates, Fred Thompson’s big exam will take place the next day. On Friday Mr. Thompson will address the 45th annual dinner of the Lincoln Club, which is billed as the “largest and most active political club in the United States.” While other Republican candidates have attempted to secure the position, Fred Thompson was the only one selected. The Lincoln Club is made up of some of California’s wealthiest republicans and is responsible for raising the support to replace Gray Davis with Schwarzenegger in 2003. Thompson’s ability to sell himself as the right presidential candidate will be key if he wishes to join the race behind such money makers as Romney and Giuliani. You’ll have to tune in to Political Derby’s power rankings in order to see the results of this very important week for Republican candidates.
