Quick Fact Check: Family Research Council Edition

A Family Research Council Action Update noted that attendance to the Iowa straw poll was down:

While the heat and voting irregularities from years past helped to deflate the numbers, the absence of some big GOP names also contributed to the lower turnout. Some of the AWOL candidates (and non-candidates), including Senator John McCain (Ariz.), Rudy Giuliani, and former Senator Fred Thompson, skipped the event.
As we all know, Fred Thompson has not officially declared his candidacy, and so he therefore shouldn't be included in the straw poll.
