State Rep. Chris Ward, R-Brighton Township, has thrown his support in the Republican presidential primary race behind television actor and former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson. Ward had previously endorsed Arizona Sen. John McCain, with whom he shares support for campaign-finance reform.
But now Ward said that Thompson "has shown the type of strong leadership we need in the White House. He has a proven record in the United States Senate and is the most electable Republican."
