Republican Erik Aadland announced this week that his campaign for CO-07 has received the endorsement of former Congressman and Presidential candidate Tom Tancredo. This is not much of a surprise given that Tancredo endorsed Aadland for U.S. Senate back in September 2021 (Aadland dropped out of that race to run for CO-07 in December 2021).
Tancredo’s endorsement is a bad sign for Aadland, who is running against Democratic State Sen. Brittany Pettersen for the seat being vacated by the retirement of longtime Democratic Rep. Ed Perlmutter. We compiled a list of Tancredo endorsements in notable races over the years, and the numbers speak for themselves; of the 22 candidates Tancredo has endorsed going back to 2006, only three went on to win a General Election.
Should Aadland lose in November and Libertarian Brian Peotter fail to win a U.S. Senate seat — which seems pretty likely — this will move Tancredo’s winning percentage on endorsements to somewhere in the neighborhood of 12%.
We can’t say for sure that the list below is a comprehensive look at all of Tancredo’s endorsements over the years; we did the best we could without wasting the better part of an entire day searching for more. The point is the same regardless: Tancredo’s support is a pretty solid way of predicting how a candidate will fare in November.
Which is to say, not good at all.

Cults gonna cult
Trump wins CPAC straw poll with more than two-thirds of the vote
Domestic CPAC attendees tend Trump, apparently. Previous session was held abroad, so may have reflected the European view of the feckless Trump and his European meeting hi-jinks. .
I think you are correct. It is a cult 100%. Policy-wise DeSantis is more MAGA / America First than even Trump. So it doesn’t seem like it’s policy that is the draw, it’s that pleasant Trump personality. <shudder> 😂
