It was reported this morning by WTMJ radio in Milwaukee that Thompson had decided against a run -- but then Thompson himself denied it, saying he had not made any decision. Thompson spokesman Jason Denby told TPMDC: "The accurate report is that he had a call last night with his close confidantes. And at the time, at the end of the call, he was undecided completely. He is going to give a speech tomorrow at this rally, this Tea party rally in Madison. And by the end of the speech, he'll have laid out his decision. So he's kind of finalizing everything in his head, whichever way he's leaning today."
