The Thompson campaign held a conference call for sympathetic bloggers this afternoon. On the call, Senator Thompson stressed that he would stick to his campaign style, but added he would increase his efforts to make comparisons and draw distinctions with his opponents. A few highlights from call:
On his campaign style: “If it’s too laid back for folks, it’s too laid back for folks,” and “we used to judge our Presidents and what we wanted in our Presidents on a different basis.” “I satnad or fall on the basis of who I am and what I believe.”
On the press: “They will only be impressed by success on election night.
On the stakes: “This is a fight for the soul of the Republican Party.” At stake is whether the GOP represents the GOP coalition or “moves left.”
