Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson is in Sacramento this week for the first time since joining the race.

Thompson has three fundraisers scattered across Northern California Wednesday, including one in Carmichael. And Tuesday, he picked up the endorsements of a dozen Republican state lawmakers.
“I stand for the same common-sense, conservative principles that you’ve been fighting for here in the state of California. And that’s what we’re having the opportunity to take to the American people.”
State Senator Tom McClintock, who’s influential in California’s conservative circles, will chair Thompson’s California campaign.
The longtime “Law and Order” star entered the race late, but he’s gotten a lot of attention from Republicans. He’s campaigning as the true conservative in the race – and says his opponents, like Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani, have changed their views for the GOP primary.
