GOP's Polk Pols Fancy Fred [Putnam,McKeel]
State Rep. Seth McKeel, R- Lakeland, has endorsed Fred Thompson.

Adam Putnam, one of the very first members of Congress to give the former senator his support and a potential player in any Thompson campaign. [McKeel holds the record for the most money ever raised by a Polk candidate for a Florida House seat-- $278,516.49 in his initial run in 2006.
Other Thompson supporters:
Sandy Adams of Orlando, David Mealor of Lake Mary, Bryan Nelson of Apopka and Steve Precourt of Orlando. Also signing on: Reps. Denise Grimsley, Larry Cretul, Doug Holder, Ralph Poppell, Mitch Needleman, Mike Davis, Don Brown, Dennis Ross, Jim Frishe and Clay Ford.
