"Yosemite Samantha" Lands Coveted Tom Tancredo Endorsement

  • 15 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Lauren Boebert.

Ernest Luning at the Colorado Springs Gazette reports, the CD-3 Republican primary heats up with the announcement that former Republican congressman, presidential candidate, and fringe-right gadfly extraordinaire Tom Tancredo is throwing his weight behind upstart primary challenger Lauren Boebert:

Calling her a “principled, no-nonsense patriot,” former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo on Monday endorsed fellow Republican Lauren Boebert, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton in a primary.

The immigration hardliner who served five terms in Congress said in a radio ad obtained by Colorado Politics that Boebert, the pistol-packing owner of Shooters Grill in Rifle, “has the same fight in her that I brought to Washington.”

…The ad also touts Boebert’s well-publicized confrontation with Beto O’Rourke when the Texas Democrat brought his soon-to-be-concluded presidential campaign to Aurora to talk about gun violence in September.

Tancredo, one of the legendary pillars of Colorado’s special breed of “kamikaze conservatives” who helped relieve the GOP of most of its power in this state in the last fifteen years (see: The Blueprint by Adam Schrager and Rob Witwer), nonetheless wields a built-in base of support that remains quite influential within the party. Tancredo is also blissfully untethered by any loyalty to the Republican elites in Colorado, who generally remain supportive of incumbent Rep. Scott Tipton.

Does Tancredo’s support win Boebert the primary? Of course not. But we can’t see how it hurts.

          1. Oh…there remains the question: 

            How many of those Fox vixens are wearing their real hair color? Same for the lads…everyone seems to be doing it these days. 😉

    1. Ah, memories…… Thanks for the update of Janet.

      I wonder if she had any comments on Colorado electing its first openly-gay governor 14 months ago? (Polis won by almost as big a margin as Ritter/O'Brien beat Beauprez/Rowland in 2006.)

    2. Hey CK

      Have you heard any follow-up on the recent church fire in GJ?

      The one TV story we saw did not mention it was a synagogue. Don't suppose there are any anti-Semites in the valley…whaddya think?

  1. I have no doubt that the substance of this piece is top notch, but I still can't get past "Yosemite Samantha" without dissolving into a puddle of laughter.
