NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson has founded a new political action committee to support conservative candidates.
The 66-year-old former Tennessee senator and actor has dubbed his new committee Fred PAC. Thompson says it is not a vehicle for promoting his own political future.
Thompson closed his Fred D. Thompson PAC in May 2007 as he prepared to make his presidential bid. That committee had operated since 2003, but spent most of its money on a management and consulting contract with a firm run by his son, Daniel Thompson.
