Re: Thompson Responds to Huckabee

Yes, Thompson’s attack on Huckabee’s immigration and economic record was well framed, but perhaps was the first recognition by a top tier candidate that Huckabee is worth going after (and not merely deserving of a brush back pitch on his abortion comments). Huckabee’s movement both nationally and in Iowa poses a problem for Thompson. Should Thompson finish out of the money and Huckabee second in Iowa, Thompson’s first tier status might be called into question. So while it’s not always the best tactic to be fighting the fellow behind you in the national polls Thompson may be wise to go after Huckabee who until now has largely been immune from opponents’ attacks. (Club for Growth is another matter of course.)
