Republican sources say that Todd Harris, a veteran Republican communicator who has worked for Jeb Bush, Arnold Schwarzenegger and John McCain, sat down in McLean, VA today with Ex-Sen. Fred Thompson.

Harris did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment. He is a principal of DC Navigators, a firm run by Mike Murphy, a strategist, in the past, for both John McCain and Mitt Romney.

If Harris is in contention for a campaign job, he would join former Fox News producer Jim Mills and former Senate aide Robert Traynham as members of Thompson's communications staff.

On Monday, campaign manager Bill Lacy asked communications director Linda Rozett to resign because she did not, in his mind, have enough presidential campaign experience.
