77. This week in Memphis history: Jan. 19-25 -

2008: Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee exits the Republican primary for president after a string of poor finishes in primary and caucus states, ending with the South Carolina primary, where he finishes third. Thompson had left his recurring role on “Law and Order” the previous spring to explore a possible run, then officially announced his candidacy on “The Tonight Show” in June.
The presidential bid marks Thompson’s return to politics following his 1990s prime, in which he had walked away from what looked to be a slam-dunk bid for governor. But his fundraising never hits the level it’s supposed to and he has early turnover on his staff. He is out of the race before the Tennessee primary, in which former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee carries Shelby County.
The same week Thompson leaves the race, Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign opens its local office in East Memphis, not far from fellow Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign headquarters.
