Tommy Thompson seemed spent last night when I saw him. He just didn't seem to be flowing with optimism. He's the only candidate, that I know of, at least, that has said he has to finished first or second in this Straw Poll. If he doesn't, he says he'll drop out of the race.
He's taking the stage here. I don't recognize the song that's playing. Now, he's thanking everybody for helping his campaign.
The national media seem to be ignoring his speech.
Lots of bikers in here to hear Thompson. Thompson's a proud Harley rider.
Here are a few quotes:
"Let's defeat breast cancer by 2015, prostate cancer by 2020 and colon cancer by 2025."
"If you're going to come into the country legally, you should learn the language."
"God love you. God love Iowa. And God love the United States of America."
