According to the “Draft Tom Tancredo for Governor” Facebook fan page (reportedly now closed due to intense trolling), the former congressman from Littleton has filed “exploratory committee” paperwork for the 2010 gubernatorial race with the Secretary of State. We’ll admit to being a little vague about the application of “exploratory committees,” but when the subject last came up we thought it was established that they were a federal race artifice–not a status that means anything under Colorado law. Can we get that confirmed? Is it just as correct to say that Tancredo has filed as a candidate for Governor, or is the “exploratory” distinction important?
Either way, Democrats gleefully await Tancredo’s next move.
