Presidential hopeful John McCain said Thursday during a fundraising stop in Mississippi that Fred Thompson would make a viable Republican candidate, but he didn’t express concern that his former Senate colleague would siphon off votes in the GOP primary.

Thompson, a former senator from Tennessee and “Law & Order” actor, seems poised to announce a run in 2008, and would join a field of Republican candidates led by McCain, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
