At a campaign stop in Nashville in June, Martin told an ABC News producer he was not a member of Thompson's inner circle. Rather he called himself a volunteer, "just a friend" of the former Tennessee senator who has raised more than $6 million for Thompson's presidential bid as the chairman for the former senator's "First Day Founders."

"It's just been really exciting," Martin said. (ABC News)
