Thompson files presidential exploratory papers, aide says
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson, who also served as secretary of Health and Human Services under President George W. Bush, has filed presidential exploratory papers with the Federal Election Committee, according to an aide to Thompson.

Thompson, whose welfare-to-work legislation in Wisconsin served as a model for national welfare reform, has also recruited Steve Grubbs, an Iowa political strategist, to help with his budding presidential campaign, the aide said.
