Jeri Likes Zach

Jeri Thompson, wife of former Tennessee U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson, is making no bones about her support of Congressman Zach Wamp in his race for governor. Jeri Thompson hosted a fund-raiser for Wamp in Washington this week.

Thompson himself has not stated a preference, though he did let Jeri put in a plug for Wamp on his nationally syndicated radio show. Thompson was aided in his elections to the senate by the Haslam family and their perpetual chief of staff Tom Ingram, who is now a consultant for Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam’s campaign for governor.

Wamp’s campaign manager is Bob Davis, longtime field director for Sen. Thompson and former head of the state Republican Party. And a friend of the family.
