Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson has been running for president for the past few months. That's news for many people, since the former Wisconsin governor has yet to campaign outside of Iowa.
That may change soon. Thompson has hired Meridian Communications, a New Hampshire-based political consulting firm, to set up an organization in the state.
Last year Meridian managed the ill-fated campaign of Jim Coburn, who lost to Governor John Lynch by the widest margin ever in a gubernatorial race in New Hampshire.
