A number of second-tier presidential candidates have been making news lately.

Here's a wrap-up.

Iowapolitics.com reports former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thomson, running for the GOP nomination, has a three-pronged plan for Iraq:

1. separate the country into three distinct governments - Sunni, Shia and Kurds
2. Iraqis request continued U.S. presence there
3. one-third of all oil revenues should be given back to Iraqi citizens
Rep. Duncan Hunter of California announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination Thursday. Today, the Boston Globe reports Hunter was the first to hit the airwaves in New Hampshire with a TV ad.
Hotline reports all signs point to former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee officially announcing his presidential bid this weekend. He has a national TV appearance lined up, followed by a series of stops in Iowa next week.
