It's official: Fred Thompson will make a Presidential announcement today at 4:30pm.
For all who have waited for this for months -- here you go.
He's finally putting his money where his mouth is. Word is that he is making phone calls to supporters as we speak.
[UPDATE by Erick:] Just want to be clear. This news comes from me and I'm in Germany, but the source is totally solid. Do not expect an official "announcement" today for the public. But, today Fred is confirming that he is running for the White House. He's been making calls today and there will be a call starting any minute for close supporters. There will be a formal big shindig later. For all intents and purposes, I think you could say the trigger is being pulled today and the waters are no longer being tested.
As the Politico notes, the big deal comes on September 6th, but the confirmation calls are happening today.
