Thompson Campaign Lashes Out at Romney Supporter Over Endorsement Payoff Claim

Its starting to get rough:
Fred Thompson's campaign lashed out at Mitt Romney Wednesday after one of Romney's key supporters suggested Thompson's recent endorsement by the anti-abortion National Right to Life Committee was traded for cash.

In an article in The Washington Times on Wednesday, Paul Weyrich — the socially conservative co-founder of the Moral Majority who is backing Romney for president — is quoted saying that Thompson's endorsement from NRLC "makes no sense" and speculated that it had been motivated by a pecuniary relationship.

"I think in all probability the Thompson people were engaged with the National Right to Life people in financial dealing," Weyrich told the newspaper.
