Fred Thompson Heading Back to the Stage

Fred Thompson dropped his bid to lead the Republican National Committee and will return to acting, the Associated Press reports.

During his candidacy, Thompson told voters he didn't attend church and said he would not talk about religion on the campaign. He received an endorsement from the National Right to Life, but dropped out after a limp reception in the primaries.
