Tancredo Files Gubernatorial Race Papers

  • 39 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

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.

    1. – a serous discussion about what a non-issue it is for states to talk about illegal immigrants since there ain’t much we can do about it

      – it would open the door to legitimate discussion about the role of gov’t funding education since TT has advocated the elimination of public funding

      – it should finally end CO Rs’ obsession with him and other far right unelectable de facto leaders.

      It also would keep out any other R nut jobs- not counting any who might already be in, that is.

        1. He won’t. You can call people Gringo’s on your website, walk off T.V. sets and be as outspoken as you are on ONE subject and expect to win a nomination. It won’t happen. If the GOP of Colorado wants to get back into office they need someone who isn’t so one sided. It’s their only chance.  

    1.    At least Penry probably wouldn’t have pulled Scooter off the right side of the Republican flat earth.

        This is gonna be a good campaign.  The future of the GOP will be decided:  semi-RINO McInnis or Teabagger Tancredo?

      1. Tancredo will say he’s looked into it and it’s just not the right time for a bid to be Governor…the guy just wants press and he’s doing a darn good job!

      1.    L.B., I know you’re brighter than to believe that.  The Dem nomination fight went all the way to Memorial Day. Regardless of whether a Dem supported Obama or H.R.C., nobody was giving up the chance to vote in primary or caucus for one of our candidates in order to help prop up McCain.

          McCain may have picked up some independents in open primary states.  But then again, isn’t that the idea?  Get them to vote for a Repub in the spring and they may stick with him in the fall?

          In this case they did not because :  (1) he picked an unqualified wingnut for V.P., and (2) he pronounced the “fundamentals of our ecomony are still sound” just as the Bush-Cheney Depression was kicking in to high gear.  

  1. the Club for (Democratic) Growth–maybe they’ll endorse TT?

    We need Sarah Sarah to come and stump, but I hear she charges top dollar.  Still one can dream.

  2. Tancredo clearly loves the limelight. What happens if he doesn’t run? He’s already yesterday’s story. Immigration is not an issue anymore and so he’s lost his following.

    Every day we have new people pop up as the latest thing in the media. That means old news gets pushed off. If he doesn’t get elected to something major, then he’s history. In two years no one will have any interest in him.

    And the only office available is Governor. I think he may very well run.
