Thompson Will Continue to be a Leader (Sen. Bob Corker)

During the course of the campaign, Fred Thompson spoke plainly and directly to the American people about the challenges facing our country and how best to meet them.  His willingness to take on tough issues like how to fix social security and reform the tax system helped invigorate the policy debate.  As my friend Fred Thompson departs the presidential race, I know he will continue to contribute to our country's efforts to move ahead in a positive way.
