The Madison County Journal, 5/24/7

After witnessing last week’s Republican Party presidential debate from a front row seat, Mississippi GOP Chairman and Canton lawyer Jim Herring said that the top three candidates stayed in the lead, that former senator Fred Thompson will indeed make a run at the White House, and that it’s still too early to choose a favorite.

Herring, who went to the University of South Carolina to attend a meeting of national Republican officials as chairman of the state party, was seated only a few rows behind the debate moderators as the 10 candidates debated political questions in front of Fox News cameras.
