- The Washington Times - Thursday, April 19, 2007

An article in yesterday’s editions of The Washington Times incorrectly reported the circumstances of a phone call from former Sen. Fred Thompson and his wife about the possible launch of a presidential campaign. The call was received by Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, who said, “No date or time frame was mentioned.”

The same article also misstated the predictions of Richard Land, the president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, about a possible Thompson candidacy. While Mr. Land said Mr. Thompson would be “odds-on favorite” to win the Republican nomination, he did not say the Tennessee ex-senator was sure to win the presidency.
