Live Fred or Die

Fred Thompson plans late-June trip to NH

Manchester – Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson will make his first visit to New Hampshire as a potential presidential candidate later this month, a high-ranking Republican says.

State Senate Minority Leader Ted Gatsas, R-Manchester, told this morning that Thompson has agreed to appear at a June 28 fund-raiser for the Senate Republican PAC.

Perfect. No conflict with the Rush concert in Mansfield, MA the night before.

Gatsas said the event will be held at the Wayfarer Inn in Bedford.

Tickets are $50 for a general reception and $500 for a private reception with the former senator.

Fifty bucks is fifty bucks, eh?

Hell, I paid $53 to see Kiss back in '96 on their "Cover Up the Wrinkles With Make-Up" reunion tour. I think I can swing $50 for this.
