In August, according to the Indy Star:
Fred Thompson, the "Law and Order" actor and former Tennessee senator being pushed by many Republicans to enter the presidential race, is coming to Indianapolis.
Thompson will be the dinner speaker Aug. 25 at the Midwest Republican Leadership Conference in Indianapolis, an event that is expected to draw a parade of presidential hopefuls.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a top contender for the GOP nomination, will speak Aug. 24 at the event, which will be Aug. 23-26.
A USA Today/Gallup poll taken June 11-14 had former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani leading with 28 percent, with Thompson coming in second at 19 percent.
The conference, held every two years, was last staged in Indianapolis in August 1998 and was used by several GOP candidates -- including a Texas governor named George W. Bush -- to help propel their campaigns.
Thompson attended that conference, too.
